This hotel is very well located right in the heart of the historic old centre of Antwerp, just by the Cathedral. Whilst it is perfectly well equipped for a convention - which was why I was here - it would not be my first choice for a holiday stay. It all seemed a little tired with very dated decor and the staff, whilst perfectly polite and helpful, were very slow to offer service or assistance without being prompted. I was pleased to be given a Junior Suite on arrival, which was comfortable enough, but the rooms are dull and gloomy, down endless featureless corridors.
The Terrace Cafe is undergoing refurbishment so there is a certain amount of noise. This was not mentioned when booking. Service in the Bar and the Terrace Cafe is slow and the food much as you would expect - acceptable but not in any way a genuine Antwerp experience.
Had I not been here on business I would have moved to one of the smaller boutique hotels in Antwerp which do at least have some charm. There are a number of excellent restaurants in easy walking distance of the Hilton, offering everthing from mussels & chips to the finest dining, so they are a better bet.
