Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Rubens - Grote Markt Antwerp
Good hotel, very well situated, friendly staff
Hotel Rubens is very well loceted in a quiet little street, just behind the Grote Markt. The hotel is nicely decorated, with exceptionaly friendly staff.
The rooms are big, nice beds, information on Antwerp in the room. Airconditioning available. We stayed in a room with a beautiful view on the tower of the kathedral of Antwerp. But if your staying in a room on the rear side, you will have a look in a beautifull patio.
Breakfast is very good, with lots of stuff to choose from.
The staff is well informed and can give you good tips for restaurants, busses and tramlines, where to strawl around and more!
Plein de charme
Très bien placé près de la grande place dans un cadre historique.
Plein de charme, chambre agréable et accueil chaleureux.
Really enjoyed the Rubens
We were warmly received and our room was at least what we expected.
The breakfasts were superb - amongst the best we have had anywhere. It was only a shame that we could not enjoy evening meals as the hotel has no restaurant.
Location could hardly be better.
Staff could not do enough for us.
Will definatley return.
An excellent hotel in a quiet location very close to the Grote Markt and the Cathedral. Very friendly and helpful staff who spoke English. Well-decorated. Room (Junior suite) large and well-appointed with views over the small garden and also the patio. The bathroom was bigger than some bedrooms I've seen. Very clean. The only fault was personal - the mattress was a bit too soft for my liking. Breakfast was buffet style and included a wide range of hot and cold items to suit most tastes.
Hotel Rubens is one of my favourite hotels if I compare it with other hotels in European Cities. I have stayed there several times. It is conveniently located in the Centre of the City, I can always park my car in the hotel's carpark and above all... I feel at home! Staff is very nice, helpful and pleasant to talk to. The rooms are comfortable, clean and quiet, so pleasant to stay in. There is no streetnoise. The beds are comfortable and in the morning after a shower or a bath... breakfast is a treat. I can recommend this pleasant hotel to anyone who wants to discover Antwerp or has to do business
I love this hotel
Just spent 5 days in this wonderfull hotel. I booked 3 days but we liked Antwerp and this friendly, well organised and romantic hotel so much that we stayd 1 week. My wife and two daughters asked me to book again for the summer holidays. If you like a quit and well served hotel then we can only recommand this hotel. The breakfast is the best we ever had.
The worst hotel!
No, no, no. This was one of the worst hotels I have ever stayed at. It is way, way overpriced; the rooms are tatty and smelly; the breakfast is awful; the only good thing is the location, but not worth overcharging (they just increased their prices too). Stay instead at the Hotel t'Sandt. We looked at their rooms which are much, much cleaner and have lovely cotton sheets and blankets rather than the polyster and unhygenic wool blankets found at the Rubens. Also, the t'Sandt is twenty percent cheaper and right near the river but also close to the Grote Markt. Finally, I was really disappointed in the tripadvisor users who made this Hotel Rubens sound so lovely because it completely ruined our Christmas holiday which we ended up cutting short only in order to get out of this hotel. This is a 50 euro hotel, definitely not a 200 euro a night hotel.
Beautifull Rubens hotel
Great charming hotel. A hidden secret in this very nice town. The staff of the hotel was excellent and very attenive.
Charming hotel -- great front desk!
The Hotel Rubens is a charming small hotel in old Antwerp. Our room, with a view of the cathedral's steeple, was lovely, spacious, and quiet, yet the lively center of the old city was only a block away. The best part of our weekend stay was the great front desk staff. They patiently marked our maps, sent us to great "locals" restuarants, and, on Sunday morning, served us a wonderful breakfast almost two hours before their scheduled opening time so that we could leave for the antiques markets by daybreak. Probably the friendliest, most gracious staff I have encountered in Europe!
A really charming little hotel in a great location, with a friendly, helpful staff. We were given a room with our own private garden, and the breakfast was fantastic.

I’d forgotten the feelings of being utterly lost, since the last few times I’ve been abroad, I’ve either been travelling and permanently on the go, or living in St Petersburg, which I know quite well.

Then we walked around the city some more, ate more chocolate and got more waffles. We also had to get our own cone of fries, I choose to get mine with ketchup even though the traditional choice is mayo. It's still an adjustment to get use to paying for ketchup but you have no choice. We decided to head back to Centraal around dinner time and find the train that would take us to our next stop...Brugge!
