... we could just do a u-turn and get back on track but turns out we were entering Antwerp’s ring road. Everytime we thought we were meant to exit, but we didn’t in the last minute because of the bad signs, then turns out we were meant to exit. Turns out we probably did about 5 laps around Antwerp before eventually making it back to the hotel.
It’s been a very eventful day but a great one non-the-less! We’re ...
... is another beautiful place with lots of old buildings. It’s a medieval town and is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. It’s not as busy or big as Brussels (which is Belgium’s capital) and is very quaint and charming. It’s old buildings are well-preserved and, apart from the modern shop names, it’s like stepping back in time. Like Brussels, it’s a lovely place to wander ...
... finally began to feel a little better. He woke me up once to tell me we had to switch buses and I could have sworn we crossed three countries to get to the other one. After our two-hour-each-way drive we met the rest of the group and went to the brewery where we learned about brewing beer. I picked up on a large sense of pride from everyone in the brewery, it was a really great experience to see how important beer is to Belgium because it's a ...
... fumes as you enter and the bleedin smurfs, and the Mannekin Pis, and the waffle stands (as yet untried) and the ubiquitous friteries.
The weather is a bit of a bugger but fortunately we have Auntie Beeb piped into our room to entertain us - unfortunately we also have the interweb so I can keep abreast of Uniteds poor form.
Depending on the weather tomorrow we will a) go to Bruges b) do the museums or c) stay in ...
... big your car was for the tight reverse park, you would be in the water before you knew it. Wikus did quite a good job reverse parking the left-hand drive on the water's edge. Then we had to ask for directions again, as the Best Western was not in plain sight.
We met the loveliest lady (Maryanne) who walked us to the Best Western, which turned out to be full as well, and then she walked with us to every hotel she knew of in the vicinity, but they were ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hilton Antwerp Hotel
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.
Great location, great staff. Clubroom was ok. Breakfast could have been better (a bit dissapointing for a Hilton Hotel to be honest).
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!
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).
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.
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).
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.
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.
