We stayed in Antwerp for a romantic weekend. Antwerp is the most wonderful place to do so: beautiful historic settings galore, great restaurants, a lot of terraces and small, cosy places to wine and dine.
We stayed in the Hilton Old Town. We booked a King Size Deluxe room, but were offered an upgrade to an executive room for a small amount extra. That seemed a wonderful offer - but is only advisable to people who want to stay in the hotel and have tea, drinks and a light meal for free. We were out at those times and got a much smaller room than the Deluxe would have been. Of course everything was Hilton quality, so the bed was great, the room was silent, the carpet was soft - but there was just one gown, one small bottle of shampoo, etcetera - this was apparently a one person room.
This was confirmed by the reservation desk when we checked out, but apart from the comment 'You had better stayed by your first choice', no refund or compensation was given.
So next time, we will stay in this hotel again, for the quality is definitely better that the other hotels we have stayed in in Antwerp over the years, but we will not opt for the upgrade!More
