We stayed in room 5, straight under the roof of the building. Room 5 is a giant room, bathroom faces the street-side and the bedroom is at the back. This is great because at least you will not wake up at the sound of garbage-men. You will wake by the sound of the churchbells but that makes for the whole... More

Just 2minutes to the Grote market and Cathedral and surrounded by lots of restaurants and bars, this hotel is perfect for a short city break. The staff were very friendly and helpful, we were able to check in early which was nice and let us have breakfast this morning even though we were half an hour late for it. The... More

A real treat of a hotel and so central - it ticked all of our boxes and some. Lovely friendly greeting, super room, very comfortable bed and the whole of Antwerp on your doorstep. Yes the stairs are a little steep (didn't bother us) but it is an authentic old building. Surrounded by coffee shops, bars and restaurants - and... More

Smack in the middle of town and a 5 minute walk from the Parking, this place is beautifully located. However, no airco, no stairs, and a shower that made a mess. Still, for 130 euros it's pretty good value for money. Staff was friendly, too.

I don't know how this place got such high marks. No elevator. No air conditioning. Right now I am laying on the bed on top of the covers with the 2 windows cranked open and the $20 fan on high. I am hoping I will be able to sleep tonight with the heat and the street noise.

We stayed for one Saturday night at the Matelote and were a bit disappointed. Whilst the hotel is in an excellent location, right in the heart of the city, convenient for sightseeing and shopping, surrounded by restaurants and bars, it is looking decidedly down at heel and in need of some refurbishment. We had a large room on the top... More

I've just returned from a three-night stay in the Hotel Matelote. As a frequent visitor to Antwerp, I am delighted to have found this charming hotel. It could not be better located. It is within a stone's throw of the Cathedral and just around the corner from the Grote Markt. There are an abundance of restaurants, bars, and shops within... More

Plus points. Charming hotel, in very historic building which was been renovated and developed and in superb location, a stone's throw from the cathedral and various restaurants and bars, but at the same time tucked away in a quiet side street. The rooms are also very spacious. Negative points. Hotel is not manned overnight.... and the rooms are in need... More

This is a rather charming hotel in the heart of the old town, close to the cathedral and lots of restaurants on a quiet street. We were up graded to the top floor room which was quirky with a disco ball in the bathroom and very large modern room in a very very old building.. there are lots of steps,... More
