Nice location and good looking hotel, but: Unfriendly greetings and delays on providing room which was pristine but tiny. Hopefully it wasn't too hot as there was no air in the room, we slept with the window open just above our head which is not the most comfortable. Also, the shower was leaking.

After reading some of the reviews on this hotel, I was a little nervous about what to expect. The location of the hotel is superb, really central surrounded by shops and cafes...oh and the cathedral!! Check in was a little slow and we weren't given a lot of information. When our room key didn't work, we went back to reception...

Best location you can wish. Tip: take a bigger room with cathedral-view! Much better than the very small rooms, especially because everything is black! We liked the decoration. Middle age paintings printed on some walls and ceilings. Open shower with glass in the middle of the room. Like! And yes, black paint goes away easily, at many spots it was...

Possibly the worst hotel I've stayed at. We (a couple) were given a single room which has a tiny bed. The room was so small you could not walk around the bed and could touch the shower glass from the bed and almost reach over to the toilet - it was like staying in a toilet.There was no wall dividing...

Great location although that comes with a noise price late at night with people carousing outside. Chic looking hotel - very dark with lots of black paint that on closer inspection could do with a touch up. Room bizarre. Bathroom completely glass so no privacy meaning main window curtains have to be drawn when showering and that nothing is left...

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...

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!...

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...

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...
