Sandton Eden Antwerp Antwerpen Reviews
Convenient location Apr 14, 2013
Our stay in Antwerp was very convenient at Sandton Eden. The walk to the train station was less than 10 minutes (though probably a few more with suitcases in tow). The hotel is in the diamond district, which doesn't have many tourist attractions but is close to several tram lines and about a 20-30 minute walk to the historic center area. Taking the tram from the train station to the center took 10-15 minutes.
My husband wanted a strong wifi signal so we requested a room on a low floor and the wifi was excellent in room 3 (ground floor). The bed, apparently, is a big deal since the hotel advertises the Coco-mat mattress on the room wall. It was comfortable and had plenty of pillows but I didn't sign up to buy one! The bathroom was quite small but fully adequate. No bathtub, and the shower is not fully enclosed but it wasn't hard to manage.
Hotel staff was kind and helpful. We didn't purchase the hotel's breakfast, but were still told to help ourselves to the coffee/tea machine at any time. That was appreciated since the room does not have a tea kettle. There were several other breakfast options in the area, ranging from full English breakfast to Panos-style bakeries.
I'd recommend Sandton Eden for those looking for a quiet, affordable but comfortable place, who don't mind walking.
