Historical Traveler Reviews Hilton Antwerp Old Town
My mum and I stayed in the Hilton Antwerp for two nights in November. We were there on a (very successful) shopping trip. The Hilton definitely exceeded our expectations. I was expecting a fairly ordinary Holiday Inn type experience, but it was far superior to that.
Our room was large and spacious, with a roomy bathroom and second, separate toilet. Everything was spotless.
Location was perfect for us, as very close to the best shopping area. The hotel receptionist provided us with a map and directions to our first port of call - the Dries van Noten flagship store in the Modepaleis.
Breakfast was absolutely excellent.
All the staff were incredibly helpful and friendly. We had one error on our bill, which was sorted out immediately.
Our only complaint was the excessive smoking in the lounge, but we soon realized that everyone in Belgium seems to smoke like chimneys, so can't really blame that on the Hilton...
Great location, great staff. Clubroom was ok. Breakfast could have been better (a bit dissapointing for a Hilton Hotel to be honest).
Well placed comfortable hotel
Just returned from 3 nights at Antwerp Hilton. Excellent location, right in the historic centre, close to the river and the main shopping area and all the important tourist sights. It is also attached to a small shopping mall and car park is directly beneath hotel. We arrived by car so this was a useful facility. A word of warning though - hotel web site road directions are out of date due to continuing road works through out the city (hotel receptionist advised us this). And if coming by car avoid the Kennedy Tunnel (use the Wasserland Tunnel). It took us over an hour to get through it and more than another hour to find the hotel so try and get a decent map!
Room was large and comfortable if a little drab and a little worn, bathroom was also large, all marble and with a seperate shower stall.
Staff were very friendly and helpful but seemed a little over whelmed and inexperienced during busy periods over weekend breakfast service. Buffet breakfast was excellent with a wide choice of almost anything you would have wanted.
Good Location and large rooms
The hotel is in an excellent location. The room was large and well furnished although it lacked natural light. The staff were friendly. There was a high charge to use the fitness factilities, which we therefore did not use.
Great location, good service
We stayed on the executive floor and were very impressed with the staff. There were some glitches, but overall, one of the better Hiltons. The location is superb and the rooms are quite spacious. We ran the air conditioning at maximum during temperatures in the mid 90s, and it was pleasant. There is a great grocery store in the basement of the shopping center attached to the hotel. We had a major error in the bill, and the staff was extremely gracious and corrected it immediately. The hotel was convenient to almost everything and there was a great Australian Ice Cream (gelato) directly outside of the front door. (Yes, sounds weird, but it is wonderful.) I would definitely stay again.
This is the second time I have stayed at this hotel in two years, it is extremely well located for all amenities and tourist areas as well as being reasonably priced (142 Euro per night for a double room).
The breakfast is excellent as is the room service and general standard in the Hotel, although telephoning home is expensive, but this is a Hilton Hotel so very little is cheap. There is no Tea or Coffee making facilities in the room.
IFrom the Hotel it is possible to walk to and from the bus stop (Sabena Express) near the Central Station in order to depart or arrive from Brussels Airport at a cost of 8 Euro one way. The journey is only 45 minutes and leaves every hour on the hour, both from Brussels airport and from Antwerp.
The hotel is also located within walking distance of 5 Irish bars for those of you interested in Irish Food, Sport, Irish Music both traditional and modern and a good atmosphere.
Great hotel in a fantastic location.
I have now stayed in this hotel on more than one occasion and each time i've been impressed.
The hotel is a great base for anyone wanting to see the sights of Antwerp, bedrooms and public rooms are clean, and the staff are friendly.
The hotel is adjacent to a shopping centre that you can enter from the hotel without going outside, the cathedral is a stones throw away , and here you will find a number of restaurants to choose from.
First Class Hotel
We stayed for Christmas at the Hilton Antwerp and were not disappointed. caveat: As diamond members, we received red carpet treatment and admittance into their club lounge which served a nice breakfast. However, regardless, the location can't be beat, in the heart of the Grand Place and steps from the ice-skating rink (set up in winter).
The hotel lobby is a destination place where people love to congregate and enjoy food, drinks, and smoke. and hotel guests are eligible to use the gym facilities operately independently located in the adjoining connected mall (voucher is free for diamond members but there is a fee for hotel guests). The hotel is also connected to a mall with eating places, shops, and the gym.
You can walk to the hotel from the main train station if you don't have too much baggage (20 min) walk. Otherwise, cabs are readily available in front of the hotel and the metro is steps away.
Great spot, great service
The Hilton Antwerpen is situated in the middle of the historic centre and nearby wonderfull shops. The rooms are very spacious (esp. 5th floor) and nicely furnished. Lunch en breakfast were very good. There are great restaurants nearby. The staff is very friendly and helpfull.
Friendliest Staff around!
Excellent, execllent, and excellent! I can't say enough about this hotel. I stay here once a month for work. The hilton antwerp is located right in the grooenplaats (green place) and is surrounded by many restaurants, and shops. The area is very safe (which is important to me as I'm a female traveling alone.) The staff deserves the first kudos as they are fabulous. Will go out of their way to accomadate you. The rooms are large and clean with goose down blankets! If you're a hilton member, I think you get upgraded to the executive floor where the clubroom is located. The clubroom has a complimentary breakfast which has a large selection of fare from breakfast meats, to eggs, sausage, bacon, yougurts, breads, patries and fruits. If you're staying there for a week, you'll have enough varieties that you're not bored with the food. Coffee and tea is always available with patries to snack on in the afternoon. From 5-10 pm, they have complimentary drinks to help you unwind from a long hard days work (or sighteeing as the case may be) After a strenous day at work, I look forward to pouring myself a glass of wine and relaxing in front of the tv. It honestly feels like home, there. And last but not least, the antwerp hilton offers special element that no other hotels in Antwerp offers....Wireless access. They have this cute little box that plugs right into your laptop and you can walk around the entire hotel and still be connnected. This is important for the road warriors who need to be connected to home. All in all, there's nothing that I can say that's negative about this hotel.

The European adventure began after an early start by battling traffic through the streets of south London then onto the M20 where the rain began. The further towards the coast we drove the heavier the downpour got until we arrived at the Eurostar terminal. Here we had a quick Leon breakfast and a cup of coffee before we boarded our train to cross …
On Thursday, rather than head straight to Brussels where we were flying out the next morning, we decided to do a spur of the moment day trip to Antwerp!
We caught the train from Bruges to the main Brussels train station and Tom and Ian did a quick run to our hotel to drop off our bags while me and Arthur waited at the train station (and sampled an amazing chocolate donut!). We then jumped on a train to Antwerp, around 40 minutes ...
... head for Antwerp, the last well-known city that I want to visit (all the other places are much smaller). I woke up naturally quite early and caught the 9:10 to Antwerp. The real beauty of this country is that although the distance between Brussels and Antwerp is roughly half the country, it only takes 40 minutes on the train. I made it to Antwerp Centraal before 10 am and pulled out my Eyewitness guidebook to start a walking tour while ...
... price, this was a great hotel, we got a room with 4 beds, although a little dated, it was very clean, well kept and even included breakfast.
Saturday was our only full day in Brussels so we decided to get a fairly early start so that we would be able to fit everything in. We started our day the the Royal Museums of Fine Arts of Belgium. Along with their permanent exhibits of modern and ancient art, they also has an exhibit on Magritte, complete with ...
... have heard some amazing stories and so many things I never knew and perhaps a few that I knew and had forgotten. It has been another long day though and I grow tired so it is time to sleep soon. But before I go, I leave you with the rather astonishing news, for me anyway, that neither Nat nor I are actually Swiecas! In name perhaps but not in blood, our biological father was one Nathan Mytnowiecki. Apparently my sister knew this but it ...
