Stayed here with a group of people. Great location for exploring Antwerp. Fabulous small hotel. Excellent and friendly staff. Only one small lift servicing all floors. Stairs are to the side of the lift. The door has the floor number on it. The door looks like the store cupboard.

Near all the main sites and fulfilled all our needs for a two-night stay in this historic port city. Comfortable and clean. Front desk was quite friendly and helpful. No "negatives" at all. Good value-for-money.

Very good hotel with an excellent position close to the centre.There is parking nearby you need a card from the reception. You can leave luggage behind in reception while you park. We had a ground floor room with a garden which was great in the heat. A good night's sleep and a good breakfast. Not much more you need really!

Location is fantastic! It provided a really good base to explore the whole of Antwerp. The rooms were comfortable but a little dated. The furniture and facilities were in need of updating as they were rather old fashioned. However, for us it was just a place to sleep and get ready as we were out for the majority of our... More

Thanks to the entries of fellow Tripadvisor reviewers we selected and booked a long weekend at the Rubens. Between us we had two rooms - one an atmosphere room with a private terrace leading onto the garden, the other a third floor room overlooking the inner courtyard. Both were a good size with comfortable beds. As some others have noted... More

Yes, the location is perfect. It's right next to the old market but in a quiet backstreet where there's basically no noice at all. All the bars are at the other side of the block. Plus navigating back to the hotel is easy, simply follow the tallest church tower in a city :) The room was ok, maby little outdated... More

Hotel Rubens is a reasonaby priced hotel with old fashioned but clean and comfortable rooms. It is in a great position only a stone's throw from the main square in Antwerp. The staff were friendly, the hot breakfast included in the price was great, and our first floor room overlooking the courtyard was quiet except for the ubuquitous bellringing from... More

Dear Murrayjane53, Thank you for your kind review! Nice to read that you have enjoyed your stay in Antwerp at our hotel. If your travels bring you back to Antwerp soon and you would rather not hear the cathedral in the morning, than I would suggest to book one of our garden view rooms which are very quite and orientated...

Hotel Rubens has the location that you always are looking for - just next to thing and without the crowds. The hotel as such is cozy with a friendly atmosphere - it is a mix of being boutique and just old fashion. The service in the reception was friendly during our stay and we also saw that displayed toward others.... More

I stayed here for 2 nights with my daughter while visiting the truly beautiful city of Antwerp. The hotel's entrance is kerbside but it has a lovely little interior courtyard. Our room was ok - nothing special about it. Sleep quality was good and the room was quiet but the bathroom needs updating and the towels were 50 shades of... More

The central location of this hotel is great to see Grote Markt with lively side streets full of dining options. We enjoyed being greeted by the receptionist with a shot of port, who also let us know that our travel mates had just arrived 15 min earlier. They were happy to provide good dining recommendations. Nice breakfast included with assorted... More
