I stayed at this downtown hotel over the weekend with two family members, sharing a deluxe (business) room with my spouse and an adjoining standard room for the third adult. This arrangement is really nice due to the common door between the rooms. This facility has large rooms (the deluxe had a large standard bathroom AND a half bath!). The beds were adequate but not really up to Hilton quality in terms of linens and mattress comfort (come on, Hilton, your mid range Hampton Inns have great beds!). In addition, the towels were thin for a hotel in this price range (not a big gripe, but more a 2 star hotel level). Note that the value for this review is high because we were able to take advantage of a pre-paid "two nights for the cost of one plus free breakfast" offer that was available for the weekend. Otherwise, the value would be average at best since Hilton does not appear to allow more than two people per room here. I also commend the hotel for security in that you cannot access the room floors except by key card elevator. The location is wonderful for walking around Antwerp to see the sights (the fantastic cathedral is a practically next door -don't miss it). The hotel block is also home to a large indoor shopping mall, which has a decent supermarket in the basement - good for getting good Belgian chocolates at retail, not tourist, prices. The breakfast is very nice and tasty, with friendly table service to supplement the buffet (my usual complaint about European hotel breakfasts applies here - I wish they would include more fiber-rich cereals in addition to the sugary and refined varieties) . The desk staff did a nice job and were accommodating. Although an expensive business hotel for the most part, it is also fine for tourists and a decent value if you can get a special deal on the rates.
