We went there in 2012 in order to spend some good time with my wife. 250 euros for a room -> you expect to find something nice! But in the afternoon, no heat in the room. After 3 calls and 2h later, someone arrived to say that it was broken and they didn't find the time to change before we... More

Really nice 'boutique' style hotel on the doorstep of the Grote Markt. Very friendly staff and nice rooms with well-needed aircon. The bed was a little bouncy but not a real problem. Nice hot and cold breakfast too. A good experience for us.

My mother and I stayed here together for three nights in May 2014, a joint birthday celebration. The hotel is serene and tranquil despite the very central location a few blocks from Grote Markt, the decor in public rooms as well as in our room attractive and tasteful (but not insufferably hip like many small Antwerp hotels), and we loved...

We arrived at Antwerp station in the pouring rain so got a reasonably priced taxi at 12 euros to Rubens Hotel. The outside of the hotel looked great and the foyer was really impressive with some impressive model yachts and attractive furnishings. The guy on reception was really friendly, spoke perfect English and offered us free chocolates! Ideal for us... More

Sometimes hotels just get it right: Good location, nice building, refurbished hotel, good staff, good rooms, clean, good breakfast, a welcome drink, parking close by at reasonable price. Was very impressed and the hotel made a very pleasant impression.

We spent 2 nights at this hotel. We had never been to Antwerp and wanted a central location. The location is excellent, close to everything yet on a quiet block. We had a first floor room with private terrace - very nice but for security you would need to keep the French doors shut at night. The room was small... More

I had heard of the Rubens Hotel but never had the opportunity of staying there. We arrived late in the evening to a nice clean (but slightly old) room in the first floor (104).
