I spend here only one night, but i would like to stay in hotelo other times too. Friendly staff, mistic atmosphere, comfortable number. There is a good security sistem outdoors, in lift, in room.cathedral situated near to hotel. It was possible to look on it from our windows. Was great to sleep, good bed, good pillows and blanket. Its quiet a long distance from central station to hotel, but it worst it.

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 the front row view of cathedral, square facing rooms are unfortunately incredibly noisy. Even with the windows shut, the lack of double glazing allowed incessant shouts and screams from drunk people from 11pm-5pm to be heard loud and clear, which was unfortunate. Despite the "main" parts of the room being clean, the rest definitely was not. Dusty, dirty and scrunched up tissues under the bed... Was the stay pleasant? Yes. Would I go again? No

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 a family room or an incomplete renovation as in the corner there was another two rooms. There was no restaurant, but a very dark dim area where people could eat the food that was brought in by a nearby pastry shop.

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.

Delighted place to be thanks to the view on the wonderfull square and kathedral Onze Lieve Vrouwenkerk.

Booked the familyroom; everything painted black in the room made it a little skarry. Not painted very well in some corners gave the impression that the room needs some renovation. Same goes for the extra room where holes in the wall suggested that the room was not finished yet.

Good breakfast and very kind staff.

Ordinary hotelroom, beautifull views and nice staff.

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 shopping area's. So the location was excellent.

The second best thing I liked was the room. The room was very nice. I had the Cathedral Room. I had a view of the Cathedral. The bed was excellent with nice fluffy pillows (2 per person) and seperate blankets. Be aware that the bathroom was an open space. So you could see your travel partner shower. The bathroom included a very nice bath/rainshowe/normal shower and products of Rituals.

Be aware of some noices at night. (The room is facing a square with cafés).
The cathedral was ringing the bells quit early. So you will be awake at 9.00 AM.
