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

The location is near perfect, close to restaurants , shops and museums. It is in a little side street so you need to park in a public car park close by (Groenplaats). The entrance is beautiful, giving a modern twist to a very old building. Check-in is rather late, from 15:00 and our room was not ready until 15:45, a... More

So after you have looked at all the neat triangular roofs in Antwerp's squares you might consider staying in the attic of one - that is room 10 of the Matelote, the attic suite complete with ancient roof timbers and the longest living / bedroom / bathroom we have ever stayed in, the length of the building. The hotel is... More

Wonderful small Boutique hotel in the heart of Antwerp. Very personalized, stylish design Boutique hotel in a quiet street close to the many wonderful sights of this wonderful City. Every room is different and nicely appointed, spacious and airy. Loved the design note but also the extremely helpful and Kind People at the reception. If you want a place where... More

When we arrived at this hotel, we were told that we had been upgraded to the best suite, which was, indeed, sizable and lovely. Unfortunately, it was not until late at night that we discovered that there was no hot water. The next day (a Sunday), a technician came to try to fix the water heater but was unable to... More

This hotel is in a great location, right in the middle of the city centre within walking distance of all the shops, attractions etc.. However the rooms are really small and basic. I didn't like how the bathroom/toilet isn't really in a separate room.. The double bed in the room I stayed in was pushed in the room. If it's... More

I loved my stay at the Hotel Matelote. It is a small Boutique style hotel in the heart of the old part of Antwerp, only a few steps away from major sights. There are only somewhat more than 10 rooms, each one different, spacious and very well appointed. Details matter. The staff is extremely helpful and supportive, especially Tessa who... More
