Super comfortable rooms, industrial, but comfortably stylish. Fantastic beds, and super cosy dovets. Great staff, and the free afternoon drinks and nibbles are a lovely touch. Ideally situated too in the centre of Antwerp.

We book at least once a year a stay at Hotel Banks. Excellent location, parking nearby (public garage) and modern, clean rooms plus free afternoon drinks/nibbles service a nice touch. In summer ensure you book a room with A/C and preferably on the top floors. The suites are the best with the fireplace a nice touch. Staff always professional and...

The location is simply lovely. Right in the middle of Antwerp city centre, still a block or two away from the noisiest, most crowded areas. We were welcomed by a nice and polite lady. She recommended us to upgrade to a bigger room as the one we had booked was very small. We checked both of the rooms and she...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
BANKS, a wonderful hotel where you can find a Daytime Café and a Lazy Lounge. Located right in the middle of the most fashionable area in town. You will be charmed by the original and modern look of its interior design. Wood, glass and concrete were melted together to enhance a harmonious mix of design and tradition. The furniture has been selected with the utmost care and is completed by their owners creations. A display of exhibitions by young artists decorate the walls. The result is fresh, bright and invigorating. Lounge next to the open fire place or a stroll straight into town? Always feel welcome at BANKS! ... more   less
