Great location. Great view from room. Loved the decor which would have been even better had it included the small toilet. Great breakfast. Very noisy at night, hotel provide ear plugs which did help but didnt get a very good sleep. No 24 hour reception which as the reception area forms part of the bar area meant no chance of a night cap after 9pm and no one to phone for advice when fire alarm sounded in the early hours. Wouldn't choose to stay there again.

My boyfriend and I stayed in a room overlooking the Cathedral. Our room was modern, clean and spacious and the breakfast is expensive but nice. My only issue with this hotel is that we were woken up at approx 3/4am on both nights of our stay by the lively street life walking by the front of the hotel and the reception is not open 24hours.

Grazie mille per aver dedicato del tempo a scrivere una recensione. Siamo lieti di sapere che ti sono piaciute le nostre camere e la colazione. Ci scusiamo per il rumore della strada di notte, ma essere al centro della città rende difficile evitarlo. Forse durante il tuo prossimo soggiorno una camera sul retro dell'hotel potrebbe essere una soluzione i migliori saluti, Hotel O Kathedral

This hotel is quirky but good. The bathroom is in the room with no privacy, OK if you don't mind your partner seeing all your wobbly bits. We had a view of the top of the cathedral (we were on the fifth floor). The staff are helpful and friendly and we were able to store our bags after check out. The only downside was the smell of drains outside our room. We did mention this but were told it was something beyond their control.
