We changed from Radisson Blu Astrid to Hilton during a long weekend stay (Thursday-Sunday) stay in Antwerp, because of its superior location in Old Town. This was a good move as we had nice restaurants and bars right outside the hotel.
We stayed on the Executive Floor with Lounge access. The Lounge is one of the better I have experienced; it was quite spacious with an outdoor veranda and a great evening reception. The breakfast in the Lounge was also quite good, although the selection was a bit better in the main restaurant.
The room itself was also of good quality, with comfortable, firm beds.
The charge for WiFi, is dated and expensive. I'm a HH Gold so I didn't have to pay for access, but the price for the 3 different speed options, low (15 Eur), medium (25), and high (35/day), is really outrageous.
The gym is nice with good equipment, the only annoying part is that you have to bring a towel from the room, its run by an independent company, and the clerk refused to give me a towel. With that said he was kind enough to arrange a towel from the hotel and gave me one during my work out.
We order taxi through the hotel on two occasions and the service was spot on.
I can truly recommend this hotel, especially if you’re in Antwerp for tourism.
