Hotel & Restaurant FRANQ marks the arrival in Antwerp of a unique, luxury boutique hotel and gastronomic restaurant. Located just a stone’s throw from Onze-Lieve-Vrouwe cathedral and the Meir, FRANQ delights with its combination of historical charm and contemporary urban-chic. FRANQ derives its name from the building’s former occupant – a bank. The beautiful neoclassical building underwent a thorough renovation, whereby the historical, architectural elements were restored with the utmost care. The vault where the Belgian Francs used to be kept has been restored to its former glory and transformed into a unique wine cellar.
