From the Grote Markt of Antwerp, duck down a hidden lane and you are at Hotel Rubens, where the atmosphere is polite, welcoming, traditional and refined. It's always good to find a pleasant medium-sized hotel in a good location. Our room was airy and very spacious - hard to find in Europe without paying a fortune - and everything was... More

The Hotel Rubens is ideally located in the heart of the historic centre of Antwerp, down a quiet side-street near the cathedral and the main square. The square was hosting the Christmas market when we visited in December – Belgian waffles and gluhwein – very quaint! The hotel offers lots of freebies that make guests feel welcome. A glass of...

A bit old fashion hotel, but a great location in the centre of Antwerpen. We have chosen this hotel because we could take our little dog. The rooms were quiet and the breakfast was OK. If you are a couple ask for a double bed!

This hotel is a great location close to the Cathedral and town square. The breakfast is very good and replenished regularly. The staff were very helpful with suggestions for dinner and the best waffle places in town. The parking is close by and easily accessible.

Fantastic location for bars and restaurants yet very quiet at night for a relaxing nights sleep. The rooms were clean and spacious with everything you would expect. Large TV with a couple of English channels. No restaurant as such but a breakfast room and small bar area in the main entrance lobby, the bar is served by reception. Great choice... More

We were only in Antwerp for 1 day, wanted a hotel near museums and historical sights. This was very good for that. Hotel staff was helpful. Breakfast was good, but pricey (19E each) so bring your appetite or go to a pastry shop and get something light. Room was large by European standards, with bathroom that had sink and bathing...

This hotel was very quaint and had a great location in a very fun Belgian city. The staff was very friendly and the facilities were clean. The hotel was very comfortable and was quiet at night. It was conveniently located about 5 minutes walking distance from the old city center and the fun nightlife. Definitely would recommend this hotel to... More

Excellent location near the Grote Markt. The building is clearly antique but internally it's been disappointingly modernised. The ground floor public areas, including the dining area with its large television, are sadly naff. Our room was ok, but we would probably have had more issues if it had been hot weather - the 'air conditioning' was just a fan recycling... More
