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:

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.

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.

“Fantastic staff, original rooms, very central”

I visited this hotel on a business trip (seminar in town) and enjoyed every aspect. Very friendly welcoming staff. The room is of good size. The bed is of really good quality. I slept fantastic. The bath in the room seems akward at first but fits in the boutique hotel feeling. The room is decorated with an enlarged artwork (I guess Ruebens) from ceiling to wall. The breakfast buffet is very complete. I loved the direct view on the square and the cathedral in the morning. It was a quite period (a real autumnday) but I can imagine the square to be more lively (and loud) during the summer. The only minus was the smell of cigarette in the toilet (that luckily did not spread further in the room). Probably someone on a lower floor smoking. The staff promised to look into it.

“Located in the city center. ”

Great location and very nice and friendly staff. Beautiful and clean rooms which have interesting design. We spend there only two days but thanks to good location it was easy to reach on foot the Central Station, ZOO, Meir shopping Street and other beautiful pleaces.

“Very nice but not for light sleepers”

Trendy atmosphere & decoration. Clean room. Very friendly & helpful staff. Excellent location. Breakfast buffet was simple, yet very complete and tasty: 14,50€ is an honest price. The only negatives were the noisy hallways (and another couple making love ... very thouroughly...) ;-) , probably due to too thin walls. There also was no separate nightlight.

“Nice little boutique hotel and friendly reception!!”

Stayed for four nights and the location of the hotel is perfect and convenient! Day time receptionist is very helpful and friendly! Alot nice restaurant nearby and DeBomma restaurant introduce by the receptionist is the best belgium food i ever had in Belgium The not so perfect part is the room can be abit noisy and small.however this is not a problem to me. Breakfast selection is not much to shout about. Do take note that the bathroom is kind of transparent type with blind, so it might be awkward for some travellers and perfect for couple.

“Interesting hotel in a great location”

Location is brilliant right by the cathedral and surrounded by great restaurants. The room itself was small (although to be expected for the location/city) but interesting. Open plan bathroom was something different (toilet is in a little room/cupboard with door and there is a blind to cover the shower if you wish), bath was nice and deep. Paintings on the ceiling were beautiful. If arriving outside of the check in times there is a system to get the key and it is easy (lockbox next to lift) and the hotel communicate well. Only disadvantage was the lack of AC as we visited during a heatwave but for the rest of the year this would be no problem at all. Will stay again.
