Darklands: The Hotel


The official Darklands Hotel

Welcome to the first Darklands Signature Hotel, in collaboration with A-STAY Antwerp. All of the 160 rooms will be reserved for Darklands visitors. Time to upgrade your stay during Darklands with a completely new experience.

Darklands: The Hotel is conveniently located next to the central train station and minutes from the city center so Antwerp is at your feet. Take the free shuttle bus at the stop nearby for a safe and easy travel to Fusion and Rage, and back to the hotel.

We’re looking forward to help you make the most out of your stay. A breakfast tailored to our community, a play pen for the pups or a sling rental, … let’s go that extra mile.
