We had 3 perfect nights at this hotel, and it really is everything it promises to be. No doubt. A little sparse equipped with staff in the evening, but it's the low season, so it didn't matter. Loved every bit it:)

Hidden behind the massive doors of this hotel is a haven of refinement & sophistication which retains the authentic style of the original merchants house combined with modern facilities. Where to start...check-in. A delight. Simple, quick and although we arrived at 10.00pm they immediately grasped the urgent need for a drink. I won't quite say it was an honour bar... More

if i would visit Antwerp again, Julien would still be one choice but not the only one. It's located a little bit off the busiest square so there is a welcome quietness (better than Hilton Old Town). However, its entrance is just 1.5 meter from the tram's tracks, it's really a bit chaotic when you had to take all of... More

Hotel Julien is a lovely spot in Antwerp Central that I've been fortunate to stay at many times for work over the last 5 years. The rooms are varied in terms of space and layout due to the age of the building. I would not recommend for an elderly traveler. The staff is friendly but not overly helpful which I... More

I stayed for 2 nights at the Hotel Julien in the beginning of December. Service was excellent, the room very comfortable, a little too much heat. Beautifully designed with noble materials. Highly recommended.

It is almost impossible to find this place with the naked eye. The taxi driver knew where it was or we would still be looking for it. Closed doors with just a button to press to get let in. Nicely greeted by a very easy on the eye receptionist. We were told that our rooms would be ready in half... More

Great hotel but that's about it. Too expensive, they charge you extra for everything. Room wasn't clean,no parking, you have to park in public parkings. No discount for the parking,nothing. No communication with the unqualified staff and they are so slooooow. It just doesn't feel right, its a little gem in antwerp,but its not a hotel. But the thing that... More

Pluses: - good location - pleasant modern decor downstairs - a large tub, free internet - nice toiletries, a coffee machine, 1 free bottle of water and cookies Minuses: - very ordinary room for the price (and Antwerp is not an expensive city so I have to believe that similar rooms can be found for much less) - no teapot...

The fact that this hotel used to be a private home (likely a maritime merchant) blew me away. The ceilings are maybe 20 feet high. The whole place has beautiful hardwood floors. Great common area with small fireplace, comfy couches. They also have books on Antwerp and Belgium you can flip through to get idea of what to do. Breakfast... More

The hotel has been beautifully converted, using a blend of old and new that is very stylish. We had a room facing the street, which I feared would be noisy but was not. The bed was very comfortable, but in the bathroom there were a few quibbles; like a previous reviewer, we had trouble with the shower temperature control and... More
