Fodor's Expert Review Hotel Rubens

Oude Beurs 29, Antwerp, Flanders, 2000, Belgium

Located directly behind the Grote Markt, a complete renovation has seen this tucked-away gem gain a new lease on life. Neutral tones, light-oak floors, and a cute ground-floor courtyard (for breakfast) replace the nouveau riche excess of the previous model. The deep bathtubs still make for a good soak at the end of the day, but its big appeal is still its location: one street away from the center yet far enough removed to seem like another world entirely.

PROS

  • friendly staff
  • free breakfast
  • quiet courtyard garden

CONS

  • parking space limited
  • the walls are a little thin
  • rooms are rather businesslike
