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.

“Not for sharing”

Great location although that comes with a noise price late at night with people carousing outside. Chic looking hotel - very dark with lots of black paint that on closer inspection could do with a touch up. Room bizarre. Bathroom completely glass so no privacy meaning main window curtains have to be drawn when showering and that nothing is left to the imagination with your partner. Toilet tiny - I mean really tiny - no air vent and barely enough room for your legs when you sit down - it's a little like trying to go in a cupboard. Breakfast good but again in a very dark space. Staff beautiful to look at but not the friendliest.

“Great Location, slightly weird hotel...”

Visited Antwerp on business but had some time to myself, I booked into Hotelo Kathedral because of the central location and reasonable price, the location really was great, the fantastic view from my hotel room was of the cathedral looming over me, really impressive! The hotel itself was a little weird... corridors and floors painted black for example, but having said that the room was comfortable, staff friendly, was clean and tidy and the buffet breakfast was good. Antwerp itself was a great city for a short visit, most of the major attractions seem to be within walking distance, some nice squares, some great bars including the Kulminator (which I think was voted best beerhouse in the world! Worth a visit!) and some very good restaurants. All in all the stay was good and the hotel, while not suited to all tastes was good value for money and the location made it worthwhile.

“Potential, yes. Depends on what you want...”

Special hotel, either you like it, or hate it. The goodies: The location: Amidst the old city center, 300m from the cathedral. The special design of the rooms: dark, black, large mirrors against one of the walls, colorprint against the other wall and ceiling, bathtub separated from the bedroom by a glass wall,. It certainly is not a boring design! Quiet rooms, far more quiet than I expected for an old building, and good insulation from street noise. The cons: The dark tones will not please everybody, and gives quickly an impression that the room is not so clean. The open bathroom may not be the ideal situation if you share a room with ‘just friends’. The finishing touch of the rooms and halls was not very good. Everything looked a bit worn and dusty. I wonder how the room will be in summer as my room did not have airconditioning. Sleeping with a window open in that location might not be a good idea because of nightlife and mosquitos. Breakfast is just OK, service very friendly.

“Dark, Damp and Cold”

This is not a boutique hotel, it's more likely to be: "youth hostel meet a dungeon".... As soon as I walked in the room I noticed that the room was cold, I asked if it was possible to turn the heating on and was told that unfortunately they were unable to accommodate my request because the temperature was centralised... I guess having a chocolate shop in the hotel avoids guests to be warm. I woke up in the middle of the night freezing.... but that wasn't all, it was so damp that when I looked at my passport, its pages had curved up. The room is BLACK, with some prints on the ceiling and a leather chair which looks like it was taken from the set of "the silence of the lambs" The only good thing is the location... tho I would rather get a taxi to go there than staying another night in this hotel! This hotel wants to try to be young and cool... but it is not working. The staff was attentive... it could be a good property but it requires LOTS of work.
