Great hotel. About a minutes’ walk from the towns centre. We travelled with our 9 month old and the staff were very accommodating and friendly. We were fortunate enough to have a room that faced the street. Highly recommended.

I had my lunch and dinner there. You must make reservation for it. The price is very reasonable 35 Euro for three course dinner. Plantin-Moretus House-Workshops-Museum Complex is...

Two minutes walk from the cathedral and a surfeit of restaurants and bars. With so much choice on the door step we breakfasted and supped out. The cathedral's bells were in gentle earshot without being intrusively loud. Staff were universally friendly. Room comfortable, stairs steep, well appointed shower-room. They looked after our cases on or last day so we could...

We stayed at Hotel Matelote for a romantic weekend, and enjoyed every bit of it! It was right in the center of the old part of town, and there were lots of beautiful buildings and streets to wander through. The hotel staff recommended us 3 places to eat, and all turned out to be fabulous. There was even a cute...

Myself and fiance came to Antwerp as part of a European trip in October. We dont like large chain hotels, so these smaller boutique hotels are always our first choice. We changed our booking twice due to travel plans changing, and the staff were happy to accommodate, even though the booking was a fixed date price. The room was large,...

Only one negative comment to say about this hotel, the used toiletry products should be replaced every day. That is it! This hotel was a great find, right in the middle of the old town. We were a max of 15 mins walking distance to the furthest attraction and 20 seconds to the first bar. You would expect some noise...

The located down a small quiet side street right in the middle of the medieaval city. We walked everywhere from the hotel. The hotel itself blends the old and the new - great design statement. The staff were excellent - on hand but not in your face. I would highly recommend this hotel.

The Matelote could not have been more perfect for what we wanted. The staff was increadibly friendly and helpful. The atmosphere was clean, simple and welcoming. The location was perfect. Without a car, we needed to be in the middle of everything, and so we were! The perfectly quaint beer pubs on the corner made the location just that much...

Excellent location in quiet street minutes from the main square. Staff were extremely helpful both prior to the visit (email), on arrival and throughout the stay. All evening meals were arranged and booked via the hotel staff and all were excellent. Best restaurant was the Aurelia - go there before they retire as you will not be disappointed. We stayed...
