Smart ways to Antwerp

As mobility is always changing, the city of Antwerp centralized all information under 'smart ways to Antwerp' providing you with updates regarding public transport, mobility maps, car parks, fares, low emission zone, route planner, etc. Please find all necessary information on or download the app on your smartphone. 

How to get here

by car : coming from either Brussels, Ghent or The Netherlands, exit 5a is the closed and fasted way to the hotel. Pilar is located on the Leopold de Waelplaats which is the square in front of the museum of fine Arts. Once arrived you can drop your luggage before parking the car.


Since 1 February 2017, the entire city centre of Antwerp and part of Linkeroever are a Low Emission Zone (LEZ) to ensure that air in the city becomes even cleaner. The most polluting cars are no longer welcome in the city. Always check your vehicle with the check tool before entering the LEZ on

by public transport : Arriving at Antwerp Central station you can take a taxi that will cost you +/-  €15 to the hotel. With the tram get off at stop 'Museum' on tram line number 4. A ride will cost you €2 per ride.

Parking option

Since we are located in an old historic building we are unable to offer private parking nor can we offer bike storrage.


However for parking both cars ( €20/day) and bikes (€1/day) we advise you to do so 100m from the hotel in the nearest secured car park which is 'Q-Park Steendok' and accessible from 'Waalsekaai 69'.


Going to the hotel, leave the parking by foot at exit 'Waterpoort' and walk until the end of the Verschansingstraat where the hotel is located.
