The hotel is a beautiful place all around, the style is gorgeous and well put, the friendliness of the staff, with comfortable and clean rooms, centrally located and steps away from Grote Markt! Reasons why my wife and I would always return to this hotel during our visits to our best friends in Antwerp!

This hotel is steps away from Grote Markt, making it super convenient for exploring old town Antwerp. That came at a price which is somewhat noisy revelers late at night, if you prefer open windows for sleeping. Breakfast was fairly inclusive although some details could use attention. For instance bananas were green and scrambled eggs seemed undercooked or had water...

You could not wish for a more central location. Excellent staff speaking perfect English. A pleasant courtyard to enjoy happy hour. Good room and secure parking 100 yards away. Very good breakfast choices accepting that it is continental. What more could you ask for from a city centre hotel?

Fantastic hotel locate just off the main square and close to all the attractions Antwerp has to offer. Lovely entrance lobby and welcomed with a drink of Sherry or Port. As we had arrived on a weekday evening the hotel also provided free wine and Tapas in the reception area which we sat and ate in the lovely terrace area....

This was a really nice hotel to stay in. The location was good, right near the big square where there were lots of restaurants. The room was spacious and clean and the breakfast was very good, with lots of choice. There was a pretty courtyard with tables and chairs and patio heaters. The reception personnel were very helpful and you...

This hotel is very convenient, within a short hop of the Grote Market and cathedral. Even the MAS is no more than a 10 minute walk. An added advantage is locked parking about 300 yds, away, albeit at 18 euros a day. There was a wide variety of beatifully presented goodies at breakfast, marred only by the reconstituted ham, plastic...

this was a wonderful place to stay for a long weekend in Antwerp. We had 3 spacious and clean rooms, everything was very comfortable (if rather old fashioned) and the location in the old town was perfect. Really recommended if you are going to Antwerp for a break. Helpful concierge service, and good breakfast. I also understand that there is...

We (couple, 20+) stayed at Hotel Rubens in August 2014, and had a great stay. They offered us a small welcome drink, and we got to check in a little earlier which was great. We did request a room on a higher floor, since they have views of the cathedral, but got a room on the first floor (there's a...
