Hotel Diamonds and Pearls

2.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

In some respects this hotel is more like a B&B, friendly and more intimate than a hotel. The owner is charming and helpful, the location is excellent and the rooms are good. We had a room on the front, with 2 large windows, the bed was very comfortable, and room size good.My one negative would be there is a little too much useless furniture in the room, a tiny bit style over substance, but this is a minor thing. The stairs are steep and of course no lift. The breakfasts are excellent.

We booked this last minute on a flying visit through Antwerp with 3 kids. The hotel staff were VERY welcoming despite the late hour of arrival. The hotel was charming and I loved the decor, it felt like a little secret hidden away in plain sight. The hotel is amazingly well located being near to lots of eateries and sights. Would not hesitate to recommend this place.

An exciting hotel very careful renovated och decorated. Charming. Large room with old antique furnitures. Comfortable beds. Very steep and narrow stair. Parking in a nearby Parking House. Serviceminded and helpful owners.

Just back from a weekend break at the Diamonds and Pearls - and loved every second of it. Couldn't fault the owners - as we didn't arrive until 11pm and they were waiting for us. The rooms was spacious and spotless (first floor junior suite with view). And the hotel's location was perfect - ideally located on a quiet street - right in the centre of Antwerp. We enjoyed our stay so much, that we have booked again for the same period in a year's time. Loved it.

No point repeating what others have said, but this is a very individual, bespoke, boutique hotel on the quiet side of the cathedral. So a great location. The manager can't do enough for you, although the 2 day visit wasn't without it's problems as there was a maintainence issue with my room let's say. Try as they might they could not resolve the matter but it was not so serious and the manager really tried to rectify matters. Breakfast was really nice (you won't need any lunch) but a little pricey. All-in-all, enjoyed my stay away from those generic international hotels!

Lovely hotel and very quiet. So quiet you have to phone the manager to come from elsewhere to let you in or get you an iron etc. Bed was VERY comfortable and the room was lovely. Stairs up to the room are typically narrow and steep for this region so don’t take a big bag up, you will struggle. Not much hanging room in closet so get the feeling the hotel is aimed at single night stays. Didn’t have breakfast here but the smell was amazing in the morning. Staff very friendly and helpful, lovely stay.

This hotel is a nice small hotel in the center of Antwerpen. We stayed for a night in the upper suite with a marvelous veranda. The only thing that they have to do in that room is to renovate the door of the toilette,cause is an old one and you can see trough... This is an easy thing to do and for me...URGENTLY! The hotel decoration is very cosy,sexy and sensuel. The breakfast nice but not for 16,50 euros per person. I would like to stay there again..

My wife and I stayed here for two nights while on vacation. The owner takes great pride in this place and pays attention to every detail. The room is extremely comfortable and well appointed. The bed is dreamy and our room with a nice. The host and staff could not be more friendly and kind. The location is literally steps away from the Cathedral. The morning breakfast was extra special - coffee or tear, egg, lunch meat, cheese, rolls, jams, orange juice, and more all beautifully presented. Ate dinner next door at Lalapalozza and food was excellent. This was a great find! Can't wait to come back.

It's always great to arrive somewhere and find it looks even better than expected. Fabulous quirky décor in the lounge, bar/dining area, and garden. A very warm welcome, great information about the city with personal recommendations on where to eat out in particular. This little boutique hotel is only steps away from the cathedral and main square, with plenty of bars, restaurants, sights, and shopping on the doorstep. The first floor room with the small balcony was perfect for us - big comfy bed, kettle and tea/coffee supplies (replenished on request), a mini bar for 'emergencies', and a shower room. Breakfast (16.5 euro per person) was a delight of fresh produce and set us up for the whole day. If you want bland and boring, go elsewhere. For charm and character, you may well have just found the right place for a night or two exploring Antwerp.

Dirty, old, the staff is unpleasant. The room was outdated and smell like it was closed for long time. The toilet was so dirty I didn't want to take a shower. There are lots of better options in Antwerp.
