“Special hotel in the heart of Antwerp”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2013

Cozy and small hotel in the heart of Antwerp. Great location to old town as well as to the shopping area. Cathedral is across from the hotel and makes a beatiful scene. Rooms is special decorated and gives different hotel "feeling". Clean rooms and breakfast is serve in a retro style bar/breakfast rest. Definately a cool and special place to stay over.
Only trouble is that there are no direct parking possibilities so you have to park in one of the two close parking garages. Short walking distance from both of them. So it is manageable.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 25, 2012

We stayed at the HotelO in the week before Christmas 2012 and were very happy with the hotel and the excellent staff. The rooms were modern and well equipped. Free WIFI and bottled water, very inexpensive (5€/person) breakfast consisting of a mini-buffet of breads, croissants, confiture, ham and cheese plate, orange juice, and very good espresso drinks. Bed was very comfortable and the view of the cathedral and old streets was really nice.
The problem was street noise. This was Christmas and the windows were closed tight but the sounds of partying drunks on the street directly below our windows went on all night. The only events going on were the Christmas marchés but the gluwine was flowing, hundreds of people were drinking, so we got very little sleep.
I wish I could recommend this hotel. It's exactly the no-fuss, professionally run establishment we prefer but if the noise is as bad in the summer when the windows are open as it is at Christmas in winter, I pity the poor person who expects to get a wink of sleep.

for me i loved the dark minimal style of the hotel, judge by the photos if its your personal taste!

perfect base for the amazing antwerp shopping; dries van noten, louis antwerp, acne, coccodrillo shoes are all less than 10 mains by walk!

great welcome and local advice from the front desk staff!

Room Tip: ask for a room with a view of the cathedral!

I chose the Hotel for the Position (in front of the Cathedral) and for the bath of the Cathedral rooms! The position is perfect and close to at least three big parkings, The room is really nice but really dark, so finding it nice or not, depend strongly on the personal taste, I liked it very much, and it was exactly like in the picture! Amazing bath and nice bed!
I notice that was not given enough attention to some details of the room and the hotel itself.
In general the review is totally positive.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 28, 2012

We stayed for one night in this just opened hotel. We booked a standard room and got quite a large room (room 25) with a double bed and in a separate room 2 single beds. Space enough for us with our two small kids. The room itself was nice with a fantastic view at the cathedral: there was a bench in the window so that you can sit there and enjoy. Nearly everything in the room is black (walls, ceiling etc): some may like the design; I would have preferred a lighter version, but that is personal taste. As said a spacious room and nice Rituals amenities. You may have some noise from outside, but that’s customary with a city-centre hotel: city charm I would say. The location itself is more than perfect just across from the cathedral in historic Antwerp and you can park your car in de Groenplaats-parking that is just a 5 minute walk away. Given the recent opening, a mini-breakfast (coffee/tea, orange juice with a croissant and pain a chocolate) was included and that was good: nothing special but nice fresh things served in the lobby/café. Worth mentioning is the nice lady from the reception who arranged 2 baby beds for our kids (for free) and was very helpful with all our baby-requests. Overall: perfect location with magnificent view, fair pricing but the design is something that you must like.
