Leonardo Hotel Antwerp3.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
Arriving on Eurostar, the location was very convenient and good for the tourist attractions and plenty of restaurants nearby, but the single room was very disappointing. The lighting was very inadequate and made the room depressing to be in. There was no wardrobe, only a short rail with 5 hangers. Neither were there any drawers and there was no shelf in the bathroom. My sink outlet was blocked when I arrived, but it was sorted the next day. No tea/coffee making facilities in the room. It was also very noisy as it was facing the road.
Hotel Leonardo is a little gem in the heart of Antwerp. We arrived in Antwerp by train, it is very convenient to have a hotel within walkibg distance feom the Antwerp Central Station. First it saves you transport money, second it saces you time, meaning more time to explore the city. My room overlooking tge plaza and the great bulding of Central Station, so I got a very photogenic view from my room. As usual hotel rooms in Europe are mostly small, but Leonardo is bigger than the other hotel we stayed in, it's sparkly clean and the room interior is relatively new. It is also located in the main shopping and culinary center so it is very easy to find your needs. Highly reccomended
The location of the hotel was lovely and handy as is was only 100m from the Main Railway Station. From there we entered the metro to the sportpaleis for a supershow from Neil Diamond ! Coming back with the metro it was only 10 min to the city center
For 2 single elderly ladies the hotel was a disappointment - long, gloomy corridors with uneven surfaces and tiny room with no central light and very little natural light either. The rooms were clean and the bed was comfortable but in spite of the sunshine outside reading in the room was impossible without the lamps both on! My wardrobe was in the ensuite and my friend had no wardrobe at all. Just because we want a single room does not mean that we will be satisfied with a glorified cupboard.
This was my base for a two week Belgian brewery tour. Note, as is typical of most European hotels, the rooms and bathrooms are small by American standards. That said the rooms were comfortable, had a nice desk and mini-fridge and big windows to open for the cool night air. The hotel and rooms were very clean, the housecleaning staff did a very good job, and the front desk staff were friendly and helpful. The location was very good adjacent to Antwerpen Central train station and there was a good selection of restaurants and bars of all kinds in the immediate area. It is located on De Keyserlei, the beautiful main shopping street in Antwerp; a 15-20 stroll down this street puts you in the area of Antwerp's three historic squares.
I booked a comfort twin room. I am travelling alone. When I get to the hotel, the staff gave me a single room, which is quite small and the light is broken. Then, I went back to the desk and ask for changing. The woman told me that they don't have any twin room available. And they also won't give a refund for this. I insist on changing. She then made a phone call and told me that ''there happens to be a twin room available''. Really a liar. The room is quite basic and very old. Many cracks on the wall. The carpet smells dirt, with many dots on it. Sound always come from upstairs. Please avoid this hotel.
I chose this hotel for the convenience of being right by the beautiful train station. That was the best part. Yes, the girls at the front desk were very helpful. (too bad I didn't get the name of the friendly young lady who helped me.) I got a room supposedly on the second floor, but by the time I walked up and down and through dark alleys(yes, I found the halls to be too dark and gloomy for a single woman to walk through) to get down to what I consider a basement room, not a second floor room. With opened window above that I could not reach to close. My view was the back walls of the other rooms. Yes, the was clean and I enjoyed the hot showers, the bed too low, and the bathroom door badly placed (banged my arm several times). I expressed my concern of being in a basement room, no wifi, and gloomy place to get to the front desk. Manangement was not available for the evening and the following day, or any other day, never heard from him. The last two days were tiring, the smell of cigarettes and marhiuana was extreme(smoking is prohibited) but when in a gloomy people will do as they please. I have to say that after going back to Holland and comparing notes with my friends who stayed there a few days before me, they were pleased and said they got a very nice room. I guess, I was the unlucky one :( or perhpas couples' rooms are better.
Great location near the beautiful Antwerp railway station. Some hotel rooms are housed in the upper floors of adjacent building and it can be a bit of a "rabbits warren" upstairs. Reception and staff were terrific - very friendly and welcoming. Room was a bit worn and could have done with a refurbishment - dated bathroom, worn carpets and paint and generally feeling a little bit run down. Breakfast was included and was quite good, plenty of variety and good coffee. Overall, a bit disappointed with the Leonardo as we had wanted to stay with this chain for some years.
Leonardo hotel Antwerp Is very well located in the center of the city. We stayed there during Tomorrowland festival and It's near the train station, what makes It really easy to get to the festival everyday and return.
We stayed at this hotel for one night on a weekend trip and were all in all satisfied. The location is good, right in the heart of the city, next to the main station with a lot of bars and restaurants nearby. The staff was friendly throughout our stay and the price was ok, not cheap but ok in comparison with other hotels on the same date. The rooms have a good size, except for the toilet where it is hard to open the door when in the room as it's so tiny. The interior is basic, like in a budget hotel and could use upgrading or replacing in some places. Anyways the room was tidy and clean. There is a little fridge inside the room as well. A big minus point is the excessively expensive Wifi (more than 15 EUR per day) which works at really low speed. I was lucky to have a Boingo account, with which you can use the wifi here for free, nonetheless, I preferred using my mobile network as it was unbelievably slow. Even if it was ok, if you can live without wifi, I would choose a different hotel in Antwerp next time. If you get a good price and want to sleep and shower here only, this place should be good for you.
