Antwerp, July 1, 2020 – Two weeks after Belgium officially reopened its borders, the Leonardo Hotel Antwerpen also announces to reopen its doors for guests. Over the past six months, the hotel has undergone a complete renovation; all 108 rooms have been modernised, and the entire ground floor has been transformed. Later this year, a terrace will be added to the Keyserlei right in front of the hotel.
In the famous Diamond Quarter opposite Antwerp-Central station, an international public transportation hub, near the popular shopping district Meir, you will find the iconic Leonardo Hotel Antwerpen. It’s hard to imagine Antwerp’s city centre with this historical hotel on the Keyserlei. After 11 years, it was time for a complete renovation. All 108 rooms and the ground floor have undergone a total transformation. For the design of the rooms the hotel architect Neudahm was inspired by the location of the hotel. This is showcased in various details in the rooms. There is also a Diamond Suite with two bedrooms, a private meeting room and views over the colourful patio of the hotel. Before guests enter their room, they can admire artwork of Antwerp, which are exhibited in the corridors of the hotel over several floors.
On the ground floor there are now several flex working places, the breakfast restaurant is extended and the lobby lounge is the perfect place to relax after a day in Antwerp. Mhammad Hach-Abdeselam, General Manager: "After the total transformation, the hotel now really fits into the scene of Antwerp, where art, trade and fashion are paramount. You see this all over the hotel. From artworks of Antwerp by the famous Austrian artist Jürgen Norbert Fux and local hidden gems to the sustainable designer furniture in the lobby. Whether you're coming for a business meeting or a cultural weekend away, you don't really have to leave the hotel to really get to know Antwerp".
