In this blog Family Room Antwerp, we are going to show the different options you have as parents with kids to stay overnight in the Flemish city of Antwerp. In Antwerp, you have plenty of family-friendly hotels where you can sleep with a family with two kids, and you also have several hotels with swimming pools in Antwerp! We personally pay attention when booking a family hotel in Antwerp to the location, the hotel’s facilities and the reviews given by families with kids who have slept at the particular children’s hotel in Antwerp.
Table of contents
1. Mercure Antwerp City Centre
The first hotel with a family room in Antwerp is one where we ourselves slept during a city trip to Antwerp with our daughter. The Mercure Antwerp City Centre is located right in the center of Antwerp, making it easy to walk to most of the city’s attractions from the hotel. For example, you can walk from the hotel to the Antwerp Zoo in a few minutes.
We can park our car in the hotel’s paid parking garage and we see right away that the hotel still looks quite new and modern. Just before we visited the hotel, it was completely renovated. It’s good to see that!
We had booked a family room at the hotel for three, but this children’s hotel in Antwerp also has family rooms for four. Our triple room was a very nice room. We slept on a double bed and our daughter on a sofa bed and the room was fully equipped.
In addition, we had a view of the city park that was opposite the hotel. And that city park makes it a super nice children’s hotel in Antwerp. Because in this city park there is a large playground and also a large skate park. An ideal place to hang out with kids at the end of the day if you’ve been downtown all day.
As for food and drink, you can visit the hotel’s bar and restaurant. Of course, the hotel’s perfect location also allows you to walk to dozens of restaurants and cafes near the hotel. We did this ourselves and we did use breakfast only in the morning. This was very tasty and extensive and this breakfast was definitely recommended! A great start to the day!

Hilton Antwerp Central Station positives: at this hotel, Dutch families really like the spacious and luxurious rooms. The extensive breakfast, the friendly staff and, of course, the location are also mentioned as positive points of this family-friendly hotel in Antwerp.
That the staff is thoughtful is evidenced by the review of a family where the daughter turned 19 and the staff had written a message on the mirror and placed a coupon for a free drink in the bar in the room. It’s those little things about a hotel that do make a hotel!
Hilton Antwerp Central Station negative points: a number of times Dutch families mentioned that the room was hot and the air conditioning was not quite super. In addition, some families found the restaurant where breakfast is served not very spacious.

Breakfast is also mentioned several times as a positive point of this children’s hotel in Antwerp.
B&B Hotel Antwerpen Zuid negative points: most negative points from Dutch families are about the bathroom of the room. This one some families found very cramped and because the shower stall is not shielded, everything in the small bathroom quickly gets wet.

We ourselves once slept in Rotterdam in an apartment of Premier Suites and it was really fantastic! Very spacious apartment and a beautiful view of the city and that right in the center.
