The hotel is situated directly opposite the cathedral so rooms facing the square have a front row view to the magnificent building. Staff extremely pleasant, bed linen, toilet, shower and sink area clean and breakfast limited but tasty. Indeed there is crumbling brick work on show inside, incredibly dark and very creaky. Quirky or run down: you decide. Downside: besides... More

We stayed in this hotel for a romantic weekend that my boyfriend's mother had won. The room design was interesting - we seemed to have an old painting on the ceiling and the bathroom was separated by glass - so from the bedroom you could watch someone else take a bath. What was strange though was this seemed to be... More

We recently stayed at the HOTELO right across the Cathedral. Great location, stylish rooms, tho they could use a freshen up ( the redo was only a year ago and the walls look a little tired). Staff was friendly and helpful, nice inexpensive breakfast. Good value.

I had a very pleasant stay at Hotel O Kathedral. It is perfect for couples. The room was very romantic and a bit sexy. (mirror walls and open bathroom). The first best thing I liked was the location. It was excellent. Everything was nearby. There are alot of good cafés and restaurants nearby the hotel. There are also alot of... More

And I hate this city. Get me out if here. Midnight and I hear people talking loud, trying to get a good nights sleep. Too bad I can't call to address the situation, hotel reception is gone from 10pm to 8 am. Needed an international plug but I guess that won't happen either. Lobby bar (tiny) not even open at... More

Positives: great central location, friendly reception, very comfy bed, view of the cathedral from our top floor room (free upgrade from our 'comfort' room), simple good value breakfast, novel interior design. Not so good: square could be very noisy at night, the relentlessly black decor could be claustrophobic, parking in Groentplats expensive (17 euro per day) but convenient.

HotelO cathedral in Antwerp is a boutique hotel on a great location: next to the cathedral in the centre of town. If you don't mind hearing 'The bells! The bells!' (and I didn't), the hotel is conveniently close to theaters, restaurants, 'Rubenshuis' and MAS. The rooms and corridors are almost completely black, which adds an unusual touch to the place.... More

I bought a Groupon voucher for Mother's day for one night stay at this very centrally located hotel. I was very embarrassed to have put my mother through this nightmare of a hotel. The rooms are small and claustrophobic. It was unusually hot and the lack of airconditioning and fresh air gave us an utterly sleepless night. The key selling... More

Very close to the cathedral, friendly excellent staff. Small but modern rooms, WiFi and bottled water for free. Very comfortable bed. Bread, croissants, ham and cheese, confiture, fresh orange juice, tea and an excellent espresso for just 5 € - who needs a breakfast buffet for 25 € or more? In-room shower without curtain and lavatory walls of plywood are... More
