We recently spent one night here on a short trip to Antwerp. From the third floor the views over roof scapes are great and you can hear the bells and see the Cathedral spire and its easy walking around the city. The room was quiet and comfy, but not luxurious. Public rooms are ok but dated. The breakfast however was... More

Extraordinarily well placed in this attractive city, the Rubens offers good sized, comfortable rooms. The staff are extremely helpful and will offer advice, directions and assistance of all kinds. The breakfast was first class: an enticing range of tasty items that lured you towards over indulgence. Hell, it was new year after all!

So, if location is what you're after…this is the place to stay in Antwerp…right in the thick of things…but a quiet street away. Its a real pleasure. The hotel itself is tired and desperate for a make over…and the interior decorator seriously needs assistance…very dated and unimaginative…AND THEN…whats with the pornographic glass bed side tables that change colours on demand…...

Just back from a 5 night stay at the Hotel Rubens and could not be happier with our choice.  From our initial booking to departure nothing was too much trouble- such as immediately responding to queries and providing restaurant recommendations etc. We flew into Schipol airport and took the Thalys to Antwerp (1hour journey).  Arriving at the station (fabulous building in...

I read many of the reviews and a lot of people complained about the kind of old fashioned/stale/not updated look of some rooms. True, the walls have a strange color, the rooms are not that big and they lack the modern look of most chains' hotels. Our room, for example, and the wc on one side of the room and... More

Had the opportunity of staying here for one night in the beginning of December 2014. Nice room, pleasant atmosphere and located in the heart of the old town. Parking in a nice garage near by. Walking distance to a number of nice bars and restaurants.

I was in Belgium exploring the European history with my girl friend. We tried to find something reasonably priced, comfortable, and close to the city. we stayed for 3 nights. So we chose this old school european hotel. The location was right on point. We could go out to eat, socialize, explore, and much more and be back to our... More

Stayed for two nights and although the rooms were comfortable the hotel needs some TLC. Really disappointed that the choice of drinks at the tiny bar (if you can call it that) were pitiful. Parking facility excellent though and great location

We did book this last minute at Christmas so the price was a bit over. Everything was to be expected, but had no WOW factor. Would stay again tho, but would ask for a nicer view, and book more in advance.

Great location but definitely not 4 star. The room was clean and comfortable but there was no drawer or shelf storage and just one narrow hanging wardrobe. The shower was good but could not be adjusted and was only suitable for pigmies. The hospitality tray in the room had two tea bags,one tube of coffee and two tiny milk containers... More
