The Hilton in Antwerp is very central, and has a great parking access compared to other hotels I have stayed at in central Antwerp. Although I had never thought a parking access important, in fact it can make or break your initial hotel experience. The public parking adjacent to the Hilton is clean, well-lit and there is a clearly demarcated pedestrian entrance to the hotel via a ramp (for roll-on luggage), and a lift. The parking is not free (close to EUR20, a normal rate for Antwerp). But for the same price, i had a much worse parking experience at the RADISSON BLU and at the Hylitt.
A second positive point is the recently renovated (small) fitness centre with new machines and a great view of the GroenPlaats. (However, to get to the fitness centre from the room one has to take the lift down to the lobby and make one's way to the section of the hotel devoted to conferences).
The breakfast is very good, in the cafe with natural light giving onto the GroenPlaats.
Staff were helpful on my visit.
I got a good rate (no conferences on and mid-summer!)
The room was quiet.
Not many negatives. I had a Belgian 3G card so did not need Wii-FI but that would be a gripe if I had had to pay for Internet access. Hence only 4*.
