"Join the fraternal order of Zeemans..." Internationaal Zeemanshuis Tip by steedappeal
Internationaal Zeemanshuis, Antwerp: 4 reviews and 5 photos
This is a unqiue institution within Antwerp. It is close to the main port district ( as well as the least threatening 'Red Light' district I have ever seen!). It resembles a large Soviet-era, college-style dorm. The rooms are basic but neat and tidy and are equipped with en suite shower/toilet and basic plus TV's. There are nice gathering areas on individual floors and in the ample Lobby where you can re-hash the day with seamen and tourists alike. There's even a restaurant and bar: breakfast, lunch and dinner is served BUT prices are a little high for the items provided. Location is a bit off the Grote Markt path (10 mins away) but you're not in Siberia. Front Desk is able but very workmanlike: best to have done your tourist homework before visiting.
Unique Qualities: Large Lobby, limited internet access (terminals need updating) and a full-scale restaurant & bar. You're very much aware here of the container ship atmosphere that defines Europe's 2nd largest port.
Address: Falconrui 21, , Antwerp, Provincie Antwerpen 2000
Price Comparison: less expensive than average
Directions: A little tricky to find. Just off the Falconplein which is close to the 'Red Light' district.
Safe at most hours.
