Discover the history of Antwerp

Many interesting places of interest and bustling areas in the historic city centre of Antwerp, are around the corner or opposite Hampshire Hotel O - Kathedral. These include Grote Markt, the 16th Century Antwerp town hall and Onze-Lieve-Vrouwekathedraal. And there are also many beautiful museums, and great things to do with the children. A few tips:

Museums
ModeMuseum, or MoMu, is located (how fitting) in the heart of Antwerp’s shopping district. This dynamic museum has a collection of more than 25,000 items of clothing, shoes and accessories. Changing and themed exhibitions are composed here regularly. What story does a photograph tell with its images? You’ll learn about this in FotoMuseum Provincie Antwerpen, or FoMu. MAS | Museum aan de Stroom is located in an impressive building in the old port of Antwerp. With permanent and changing exhibitions, this museum tells the story of the city, the river, the port and the world. Famous baroque painter Rubens purchased a building in 1610 which he converted entirely into a home. This building is now a museum, Rubenshuis, that tells the story of his life and work.

Children
One of Europe’s oldest zoos is located in the heart of the city: Antwerpen Zoo. A beautiful, historic place where around five thousand animals live and where there’s lots to see and experience. If the weather turns, you can let the children blow off steam in the indoor playground Pirateneiland. This indoor playground has a pirate ship, climbing and clambering places, slides and games. Aquatopia is also indoors, and is a top attraction with seven wonder water worlds: rain forest, swamp, mangrove, coral reefs, ocean, lab and diving boat. Ecohuis is to the east of Antwerp. In this interactive house you can learn with the whole family how to live in the most environmentally-friendly way possible. You can really take advantage of this.

Special places
Het Steen is a beautiful castle built around 1200. The monument is on the Schelde and is the oldest building in Antwerp. Begijnhof is certainly worth a visit, an oasis of peace in the city with historic small houses, the Sint-Catharinakerkje and a beautiful enclosed garden. The streets around Antwerp central station together form the diamond district, the heart of Antwerp’s diamond industry. You can find precious stones, gold and silver here.

“Excellent location”

The hotel is situated directly opposite the cathedral so rooms facing the square have a front row view to the magnificent building. Staff extremely pleasant, bed linen, toilet, shower and sink area clean and breakfast limited but tasty. Indeed there is crumbling brick work on show inside, incredibly dark and very creaky. Quirky or run down: you decide. Downside: besides the front row view of cathedral, square facing rooms are unfortunately incredibly noisy. Even with the windows shut, the lack of double glazing allowed incessant shouts and screams from drunk people from 11pm-5pm to be heard loud and clear, which was unfortunate. Despite the "main" parts of the room being clean, the rest definitely was not. Dusty, dirty and scrunched up tissues under the bed... Was the stay pleasant? Yes. Would I go again? No

“Interesting room theme but hotel is bare minimal”

We stayed in this hotel for a romantic weekend that my boyfriend's mother had won. The room design was interesting - we seemed to have an old painting on the ceiling and the bathroom was separated by glass - so from the bedroom you could watch someone else take a bath. What was strange though was this seemed to be a family room or an incomplete renovation as in the corner there was another two rooms. There was no restaurant, but a very dark dim area where people could eat the food that was brought in by a nearby pastry shop.

“Trendy and much used”

We recently stayed at the HOTELO right across the Cathedral. Great location, stylish rooms, tho they could use a freshen up ( the redo was only a year ago and the walls look a little tired). Staff was friendly and helpful, nice inexpensive breakfast. Good value.

“Very romantic”

I had a very pleasant stay at Hotel O Kathedral. It is perfect for couples. The room was very romantic and a bit sexy. (mirror walls and open bathroom). The first best thing I liked was the location. It was excellent. Everything was nearby. There are alot of good cafés and restaurants nearby the hotel. There are also alot of shopping area's. So the location was excellent. The second best thing I liked was the room. The room was very nice. I had the Cathedral Room. I had a view of the Cathedral. The bed was excellent with nice fluffy pillows (2 per person) and seperate blankets. Be aware that the bathroom was an open space. So you could see your travel partner shower. The bathroom included a very nice bath/rainshowe/normal shower and products of Rituals. Be aware of some noices at night. (The room is facing a square with cafés). The cathedral was ringing the bells quit early. So you will be awake at 9.00 AM.

Old hotel, tried to make look new. Nothing in the hotelmwas even close to being perfect. Maybe the tv? Toilet downstairs had a huge cocoroach, lobby is small, breakfast cheap but extremely low quality , elevater shox while it moves, making e. Think it will break down any second, toilet very small, bath/shower area with out privacy as it is mde from glas, room was hot, and not aic, window that opens only for a small part so no fresh air in the room during the noisy nights, not tea/coffee maker, no minibar, the room had dust all over the pace, and finally the bed was ok...
