What: For me at this moment Hotel Julien is the most beautiful hotel in Antwerp. If you get the chance to sleep in this city, you have to take this option in serious consideration.
Atmosphere & design: The design of the hotel is extraordinary. I am a big fan of the combination of the light wood and marble in their bathrooms, I love to sit in their living room in front of the fireplace, I want to hang out in their spa forever, I adore the fresh flowers throughout the hotel and I like to spend evenings in their bar sipping great cocktails (open for non-hotel guests too!).
Location: Their location is perfect. It lies a few doorsteps away from the Antwerp cathedral, good restaurants and the shopping area. You are in the most central part of Antwerp city.
Insiders tip: They have a beautiful private spa in their cellar that you can book (also as a non-hotel guest). Combine it with a treatment (REN products!) and feel like new when you come outside. Don’t forget to have a look at their rooftop terrace to have the best views of the cathedral.
Price category: Rooms are between 180 and 260 euros per night.
