The 5 best small hotels in Antwerp
1) 't Sandt
Here is the ideal small hotel, located in a former 19th-century fruit warehouse. Bedrooms are spacious and stylish, each decorated in a different style (including some tucked under the eaves). Add an Italianate garden, rooftop terrace and a location close to the Scheldt, and you have one of the most appealing small hotels in the city.
2) Le Tissu
A perfect small hotel – just five rooms – located in a former parsonage next to a church. The interiors were decorated by two Antwerp designers who have their office in the building. They have gone for a deeply romantic style using a rich variety of fabrics (giving the hotel its name, The Fabric).
3) Hotel Franq
This gorgeous urban hotel opened in 2017 in a renovated neoclassical building that once belonged to a bank. Named after the former Belgian currency, Franq has a grand lobby, a relaxed bar and a hidden garden at the back.
A charming family-run hotel in an art deco mansion dating from 1929. The garden is spacious and breakfast is generous. Located in a residential
neighbourhood, it is a 20-minute tram ride from the centre, but within walking distance of Middelheim sculpture park.
5) Abondance Logies
Ann Van Ouytsel has sensitively restored a belle époque mansion in the Cogels-Osylei quarter to create a four-room guest house. She provides a comfortable place to stay in a fascinating district of art nouveau architecture and small neighbourhood restaurants.
