Antwerp is great shame about the hotel! A review of De Keyser Hotel
This hotel is situated near the station and easy to find. The reception is clean and all staff are very very helpful.
This hotel is currently being refitted floor by floor, If you like to lie in past 9.30am forget it the hammering and drilling will wake you.
There is also a very strong stench of sewage (drains/excrement) in the corridors of some floors. We were on the fourth floor and asked to be relocated.
The second floor was a little better so we decided to give it a try, in a apparently newly "refitted" room tha had some scrapes on the walls. The room and bathroom were clean. The bath is a fine if you are short, but I am 5'6" and even my knees were above water when reclined. Although the room initially was stench free in the morning, the bathroom had an extremely strong stench of excrement. The mirror steams up due to the poor ventilation in the bathroom. The air-conditioning is also loud and some people will have problems sleeping with it on. The leisure area has a small gym, pool (about 20'x20') but it does have power jets that you can swim into, spar bath, sauna and a Turkish bath (steam room) that was out of order and no lockable lockers were available.
The Bar was closed, but all rooms have a mini bar. Breakfast was available but we choose to eat out.
