Unique in the heart of historical Antwerp!
A cosy 4 star deluxe hotel that pleases the demanding businessman as well as the well-informed tourist. Under a minute’s walk from the famous “Grand Place” where all the action is, very quietly situated between a patio with 16th century colonnade and a green garden with view on an 18th century façade, this romantic and charming hotel offers 36 rooms, including 3 Junior suites and 1 Rubens Suite (80M2).
In summer you may enjoy the delicious hot and cold breakfast-buffet on the patio, in the shadow of our own Pagaddertower (the oldest in town).
The hotel Rubens is easily accessible. Take a minute to print the road description as you find it on our website since it will guarantee you a swift and uncomplicated arrival.
Once parked in one of our garages of course, you do not need a car until departure, since nearly all things of interest are within easy walking distance!
The proximity of the “Grand Place” with its multitude of restaurants and bars, from the simple snackbar, to the best gastronomical restaurant, via a trendy bistro or a typical Flemish brasserie, offers the largest variety and guarantees the right place for each budget and taste.
The rooms are spacious, light and individually decorated. They are all air-conditioned (with individual commands), cable tv (CNN and BBC), telephone, mini-bar, hairdryer, internet connection and even WI-FI, and an individual safe. Reading lights by the bed can be adapted to individual needs.
We offer automatic wake-up calls and voicemail. Room service is available within certain hours.
Where else can you choose between a room with a view on the garden with as only sound the song of birds, the Cathedral, Saint Paul’s Church, the garden or the patio with a 16TH century colonnade and the oldest Tower of Antwerp?
Very exclusive are the 3 deluxe rooms and 1 Junior Suite with a private terrace on the ground floor. Just imagine yourself sitting in total quiet on your private terrace with an after dinner drink. Excellent for an anniversary, a birthday, a surprise or just a relaxing time-out.
At the Rubens we like all kind of celebrations, we always join in with a little present.
The hotel Rubens possibly offers the most complete hot and cold breakfast-buffet. The fact it is always included makes it even more worthwhile enjoying!
Do you feel like escaping for a couple of days to a warm and welcoming place, where you can hide in total quiet and at a moments whim, enjoy all the hustle and bustle of what Antwerp has to offer, with friendly, welcoming and polite staff to take care of you ? Then this is the place you are looking for. We really try our best to make your stay successful!
