Situated in a very interesting spot in Antwerp, the brand new NH Hotel Antwerp Centre only opened a few months ago. The hotel is located only a few steps from the famous Antwerp Zoo and also from Central Station, one of world’s most beautiful train stations. Also, the large shopping street Meir is reachable in just minutes.


As I entered the NH Hotel Antwerp Centre, I was welcomed by very friendly front desk staff. Service here is always with a smile which is absolutely pleasant. The lobby area is pretty large and I loved the decoration: quite trendy, but not over the top… It is classy with a modern touch, just the way I like it! Sleek and chic yet cosy is how I would describe it. Although the hotel was almost fully booked at the time I was there, you wouldn’t tell as there is this absolutely relaxed atmosphere throughout the entire hotel. A big eye catcher of NH Collection Antwerp Centre is the urban jungle, a beautiful inner garden. Just beautiful!


I stayed in one of their Premium rooms and was impressed with the room! It was very nicely laid out with wooden floor and a queen bed and Nespresso coffee machine. The room also came with a large working desk which was pretty convenient as I needed to do some work. All rooms come with high speed internet. The view from the room was stunning!


The large and trendy bathrooms are equipped with a very good rainshower. As usual, fancy NH Collection toiletries are provided including the hand cream which smells amazing!


NH Collection Antwerp Centre offers a fitness center. Although not too big, it does offer all the facilities for a great work out including towels and complimentary water. The entire place was very clean and well maintained.


After a wonderful night’s sleep (I was spoiled as they have wonderful mattresses in each room) we had breakfast. The buffet style breakfast was excellent with lots of options to choose from. Local specialties such as the famous Belgian waffles and bread pudding can not be missed!


NH Collection Antwerp Centre is a trendy and classy four star hotel in a great spot. The rooms are very stylish and offer the comfort you would expect from a high class hotel like this. Although it has 186 rooms, it kind of felt like staying in a boutique style hotel. Whether it is for business or leisure, you can’t go wrong by staying here. I thoroughly enjoyed my stay here and I truly believe it is one of the better hotels in beautiful Antwerp.

Located in a very interesting and convenient spot, Turnhout’s newest luxury hotel Corsendonk Turnova is rated as one of the best hotels in the area. It is a brand new four star hotel and offers only the best of the best! From the moment we arrived untill the time we left, we felt great. The staff is just wonderful and will do their upmost best to serve you in a fantastic way.


Upon arrival, everything is explained in a friendly yet professional way. The lobby is stylish and trendy decorated. There are several cozy sitting areas where it is great to hang out and talk about the everyday’s life. Our keys were handed in just seconds before we headed to our wonderful room.


The suite we stayed in had a great size and is comfortably appointed. I enjoy the daylight and appreciated the floor to ceiling windows. Standard amenities are a Nespresso coffee machine, HD television and a safe. The suite also had a portable Bose speaker which was a nice touch. Plenty of sockets in the room as well which is rarely the case at most hotels! Loved it! There was also a separate toilet.

I especially liked the bathroom which featured a wonderful free standing bath tub. I enjoyed some me time in the evening in this tub and loved every second. The bathroom was also appointed with a large walk-in (rain)shower and double sinks. Fancy Rituals toiletries are provided in each room. Every spot in our suite was spotlesly clean.


A true highlight of Corsendonk Turnova is the Spa Area. When I was in Turnhout it was pretty cold and it was absolutely amazing to relax in the spa after a day spent in the cold. The spa is opened all day long. There’s a traditional sauna, an infra-red sauna and water experience walk where 4 several showers gave me an unique experience. Hot and cold water and even scents add even more exceptional feelings through the entire body. I loved it. An adjoining relax area with the two most comfortable lounge chairs are the perfect spot to unwind. I read a book afterwards, closed my eyes and enjoyed the very relaxing music. It was the perfect way to end my day.


The next morning we had breakfast in the restaurant downstairs. It is a buffet style breakfast offering only fresh products. We sat down and the very accommodating staff immediately wished us a very good morning. The food was delicious and I appreciated the mix of sweet and salt. There’s just something for everybody. Some highlights were the ‘make your own waffles’ and freshly squeezed orange juice. Complimentary sparkling wine is offered as well. Make sure to add breakfast to your booking, you will not be disappointed!


Our stay at the Corsendonk Turnova was wonderful and I can easily understand why it is rated as one of the best hotels in the area. From the personal approach to the comfortable rooms and amazing breakfast, Corsendonk Turnova is top notch and I highly recommend to stay at this hotel when you are in the area of Turnhout, whether it is for leisure or business.
