Funky, classy hotel right near the main squares in Antwerp. Make sure to go up and check out their cute little deck on the roof. Nice view of the cathedral. Nice, small, quiet rooms, and friendly staff.
Go to the Waffle Queen for breakfast

This beautifully renovated building was our favourite hotel during our five week overseas trip. Spotlessly clean and comfortable and only a few minutes from central Antwerp. The lounge area was perfect to relax and have a drink from the bar or a coffee. Fabulous breakfast and all the staff were friendly and available when needed. I highly recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: We had a top floor room which we thought was good as the tram runs past the hotel which is in a narr...

Location - 10/10. 5-10 min walk to everything central. The hotel itself is nice and quiet. It's a quirky little place with a lot of nice surprises in every nook and cranny. The lounge is a nice area to chillax. Staff polite and helpful and the breakfast is more than sufficient to keep you full until lunch (or beyond). Room 11 (at the top level under the eves) is nice and spacious. As a solo traveller, the room is perfect but couples or those travelling as friends may not like it as much because it's all open plan i.e. no doors separating the bath from the bed. Great design throughout the hotel and Room 11 has a lot of storage space but because it's under the eves, the design has been compromised slightly e.g. no big mirrors in the bathroom, you may need to be careful with the beams when you walk around, nice big bath with a shower head but no walk-in shower etc. Great views of the cathedral though.

Room Tip: Room 11 is all open-plan.

We've stayed for 5 night in Hotel Julien. Chose not to have breakfast in the hotel because neighborhood offers very nice places to have it outside - so I couldn't rate restaurant. Service is nice, helpful. Designed rooms - clean, quiet with enough space for the two of us (of course, that includes shopping bags)
Although it is a bit pricey staying, my rating is - recommend!

I stayed at the Hotel Julien for two nights in August 2013 and we simply had a wonderful stay. The location is perfect (a block from the Cathedral square). The hotel is super stylish and elegant. The decoration using iconic design is fantastic. The hotel has beautifully integrated other space from the original design making it a true original. The rooms themselves are very creatively designed and the bed was ultra comfortable. The staff is super helpful and friendly. I highly recommend staying there and would stay again if I am back in Antwerp.
A few tips:
a) do not be fooled by the simple looking door facing the street. The book is definitively not the cover.
b) the hotel is on a street with a tramway so you need to be efficient if arriving by car.
c) make sure to enjoy a drink from the roof of the hotel. Wonderful view!

We adore this hotel for three reasons: 1. Design. The hotel was transformed from two old mansions joined together. It still have a lot of original characters with courtyards and interesting dimensions. The interior is mostly done with mid-century modern that wed thoughtfully with the original space, decorated with authentic classic furniture designs, contemporary art photographs and volumes of books on art and design. It was done with tremendous taste and an understated elegance. Our room was very spacious, with high ceiling and a massive bathroom. Feels rather palatial. 2. Location. Right in the old town center, 3 mins walk to Grotemarkt, yet it is on a quiet street where not a lot of tourists passing through. 3. Great service. The ladies in the front desk are all very helpful and efficient. The pre-arrival service was also excellent with special notes regarding our toddler son because certain rooms have no elevator etc. They ended up upgrading us to a even bigger room upon arrival.

Brilliant weekend getawy for shopping, seeing friends, and eating. The hotel is bang in the center behind a big door that you are buzzed into. We were lucky to get Room 28 with a private terrace. Fab! If arriving by car, be prepared to unload in 30 seconds, there is a tram line that passes in front of the hotel on a narrow street. The staff is friendly and quirky, but professional and calm. The building is lovingly and tastefully restored. Bar is a bit dead, but plenty of cafés and bars nearby. Breakfast is great.
