Visited Antwerp on business but had some time to myself, I booked into Hotelo Kathedral because of the central location and reasonable price, the location really was great, the fantastic view from my hotel room was of the cathedral looming over me, really impressive! The hotel itself was a little weird... corridors and floors painted black for example, but having... More

Special hotel, either you like it, or hate it. The goodies: The location: Amidst the old city center, 300m from the cathedral. The special design of the rooms: dark, black, large mirrors against one of the walls, colorprint against the other wall and ceiling, bathtub separated from the bedroom by a glass wall,. It certainly is not a boring design!... More

This is not a boutique hotel, it's more likely to be: "youth hostel meet a dungeon".... As soon as I walked in the room I noticed that the room was cold, I asked if it was possible to turn the heating on and was told that unfortunately they were unable to accommodate my request because the temperature was centralised... I... More

You couldn't want for a better location in Antwerp if you want to stay central for a short weekend break, OK sized rooms and decent smellies in the open, more than peek-a-boo shower and the beds - two narrow twins pushed together - were functional but comfortable. However overall the hotel fell short of the 'design/boutique' standards it set itself... More

On arrival in the evening the location looks amazing. The hotel is on a beautiful cobbled square with the cathedral lit up right in front of you. Then you enter! The reception is small but fine and staff were nice enough. Then the blackness starts. If you like black then you're in the right place. All the corridors and rooms... More

If u want to be in the centre of Antwerp, this is the place to be. Quite new (opened in 2012) hotel with slightly trendy look and feel. The Kathedral Rooms (with side-view on the Antwerp Kathedral) are well-sized with the shower/bath facilities in a glass box in the room. So not for shy people if you are sharing the... More

While the hotel is in the most enviable position in Antwerp, the owners have handed the design and decor over to some awkward teenagers. The entire place is matt black, from the corridors to the rooms. Once you have fumbled your way into the'boudoir'you are immidiately tested in regard to the relationship, if you're comfortable watching, hearing and inevitably smelling... More

Overall the staff made our stay magnificent. Allowing us to see the town with advice and knowledge. The view from the top, also heavenly and peaceful. Thank you so much and look forward to coming back.

This hotel has many references on various sites, which conflict. The hotel falls short of all the descriptions it puts out that I have seen. It is in an excellent position and the limited staff were polite and friendly. The room I was allocated was painted black with Rubines style women and children in various states of undress. The room... More
