My mother and I stayed here together for three nights in May 2014, a joint birthday celebration. The hotel is serene and tranquil despite the very central location a few blocks from Grote Markt, the decor in public rooms as well as in our room attractive and tasteful (but not insufferably hip like many small Antwerp hotels), and we loved...

We arrived at Antwerp station in the pouring rain so got a reasonably priced taxi at 12 euros to Rubens Hotel. The outside of the hotel looked great and the foyer was really impressive with some impressive model yachts and attractive furnishings. The guy on reception was really friendly, spoke perfect English and offered us free chocolates! Ideal for us... More

My husband and I stayed 3 nights in Antwerp last week. Those who worked at the hotel were very friendly and helpful. The room was spacious and clean. The hotel has a lovely courtyard where we could sit and relax, as well as a room with a TV near the lobby (some were watching sports). Good variety of food for... More

Sometimes hotels just get it right: Good location, nice building, refurbished hotel, good staff, good rooms, clean, good breakfast, a welcome drink, parking close by at reasonable price. Was very impressed and the hotel made a very pleasant impression.

We spent 2 nights at this hotel. We had never been to Antwerp and wanted a central location. The location is excellent, close to everything yet on a quiet block. We had a first floor room with private terrace - very nice but for security you would need to keep the French doors shut at night. The room was small... More

I had heard of the Rubens Hotel but never had the opportunity of staying there. We arrived late in the evening to a nice clean (but slightly old) room in the first floor (104). Had a good nights sleep and came downstairs to a very nice buffet breakfast. The Rubens is an old hotel but very cozy and reasonably priced.... More

Recently spent two nights in Hotel Rubens. A great location near to the Grote Market and walking distance to the many local attractions. A friend and I had a really spacious twin bedded room with good size bathroom and separate toilet, always a great idea in my book! The breakfast had plenty of the usual fare both hot and cold....

I have stayed at this beautiful hotel a number of times now. The rooms are nice and clean and the beds are very comfortable. The location could not be better being near the city sites and the bars and restaurants. I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone. It's very nice being greeted with a glass of sherry or port... More

the position of the hotel is perfect next to it there is the grote market parking, but I believe that the hotel itself has its own parking . The room, I stayed on ,was very big with wooden floor. The bathroom was dated but there was a bad smell on it separated from the toilet . The tv has a... More
