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... More

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... More

Good location. Pleasant staff. Lovely courtyard. Nice breakfast. Walking distance to city center... Reasonable. My friends and I really enjoyed our stay. It was a great jumping off place for our river cruise.

We were at this hotel in July 2014 and it's incredible. The location is perfect, really. The rooms are nice and there is air conditioning (!), the breakfasts are very good, and the free wine in the evening is a nice touch. We thoroughly enjoyed our time here!

We went there in 2012 in order to spend some good time with my wife. 250 euros for a room -> you expect to find something nice! But in the afternoon, no heat in the room. After 3 calls and 2h later, someone arrived to say that it was broken and they didn't find the time to change before we... More

rubenshotel, Manager at Hotel Rubens - Grote Markt, responded to this review

dear Sir, Madam, I am somewhat at a loss here, we have had more or less the best weather since years this summer, and this review talks about non working heating. It speaks about a stay in 2012 and this posting is from 2014. You talk about 250€ per night, that is not the price for a room, but for... More

Really nice 'boutique' style hotel on the doorstep of the Grote Markt. Very friendly staff and nice rooms with well-needed aircon. The bed was a little bouncy but not a real problem. Nice hot and cold breakfast too. A good experience for us.

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
