August: Spend the Night and Meet in a Former Monastery

A former Augustinian monastery becomes a modern place of peace and tranquility, charming with modernist accents: welcome to August –  a hotel,  restaurant, bar, wellness, shop and gardens in the middle of the lively metropolis of Antwerp.

Located on the site of the former Military Hospital in Antwerp, August embodies the character of a trendy neighborhood at its best. The intimate accommodation is located in the center of a bustling part of the city. Surrounded by restaurants and bars, the hotel remains an oasis of tranquility, including its own swimming pond and relaxing gardens to stroll around. Inside, every detail has been carefully designed for total comfort: custom-made furniture, iconic lighting, hand-woven carpets, hand-glazed tiles, ceramics and tableware and much more.

Spend the Night

The former monastery houses 44 rooms and suites, varying between 16 and 41 square meters. All rooms feature a double bed, a flat-screen TV, air conditioning, a laptop safe, a fully stocked minibar, a wireless speaker, Egyptian bedding, a private bathroom with a walk-in shower (some rooms have a free-standing bath) and Bamford toiletries. The rooms are a warm tribute to the dedicated way of the former Augustinian life, but with the addition of all modern amenities. No room is identical, with an emphasis on the unique features of the entire site. Warm and high-quality materials welcome you during your stay.

Bar & Restaurant

Enjoy elegant drinks and hearty meals in the August bar in the restored chapel. The restaurant offers a delicious menu with an emphasis on regional and seasonal products put together by chef Nick Bril.


Meet in an ambitious setting, in the middle of a restored monastery of the olden days. August has three meeting rooms, a private lounge and a pavilion in one of its gardens. The meeting rooms and the pavilion are available for small and medium-sized events, from 2 to 32 persons. Reservations can be made per day or half a day. A wide range of packages are available: coffee, lunch, drinks, hearty meals and/or private dinner. All meeting rooms feature high-speed Wi-Fi, custom-made furniture, hand-woven carpets, natural daylight, modern AV materials, great acoustics and an experienced and solution-oriented team to help and guide.


Relaxing after a draining meeting or a short break during a busy seminar? Walk freely in the gardens and discover the green oasis within the walls of August. Those who wish to de-stress completely can go to the wellness in the historic setting of the monastery. The special wellness area invites guests to the sauna or hammam. Cool off under the outdoor shower on the adjacent ‘Cour Anglaise’ or in the outdoor swimming pond.
