What are you looking for? This hotel has an historic front but inside is not overly worn or dated. It's not exciting, if that's what you want, but behind a grand facade this centrally located hotel is ideal for exploring Antwerp. There are different packages you can opt for. As a Hilton Silver we upgraded to a larger De Luxe room and were glad of the extra air/space as the a/c was not working (par for the course we find in European hotels). So, as we prefer to sleep in a cool room we opened the window at night. The mattress was very good as were the pillows. The bathroom was large and well equipped including large, but not fluffy, towels, but the fan did not work. B/fast was excellent with attentive staff and you could ask for fried eggs or an omlette if these were not on offer on the hot buffet. Slight moan that there was not any marmalade for British visitors. Reception staff were very pleasant and helpful: thankyou Anrej and especially Thomas for recommendations.
We did not dine at the hotel as prices were not competetive. We recommend
De Peerdestal...speciality excellent tender and tasty horse steaks. Restuarant very popular with locals taking people out to dinner.
De Pottekijker... Huge portions...600g meat for your mixed grill and very reasonable Popular with locals..few tourists.
Rooden Hoed... Belgian rabbit stew and lobster specialities. Tourists mainly.
For excellent coffee and delicious cakes try Dr zoete Verleiding. at Vlasmarkt 27, (cross the sq diagonally and go down Hoostraat turning left into Vlasmarkt).
All these recommendations are under 4 mins walk from the hotel and well worth it. Staff will give you extra directions.
We like Anwerp and we like hotel and would return another day if in Belgium.
