Trusted that this was a great choice when I booked it!! It was FABULOUS! Greeted by friendly and welcoming staff members upon entering and departing during our stay!! Room was spotless! Breakfast was delicious and the view of the church belfry and clock was magnificent!! Location was GREAT! We thoroughly enjoyed ANTWERP!! Many restaurants and shops to see and indulge in!! Took a taxi to the hotel from Antwerp Centraal Station and didn't realize how close it was until we stumbled upon it during one of our daily walking explorations! It was so close that we walked there when we checked out and headed to our next destination via Eurostar!!

We very much enjoyed our stay at the Hotel Rubens - Grote Markt in Antwerp. The room and bathroom was luxurious, the breakfast excellent and the service at the front desk was superb. The location is a short walk to the center of town. We were able to park our vehicle down the street in an underground secure garage with no problems. We would not hesitate to recommend this beautiful hotel.
