Not overly impressed A review of HotelO Antwerpen Kathedral

This hotel has a great location but that's about it. Unfortunately with this location comes the noise of the bells from the cathedral and the cafe's and pubs surrounding the hotel. The rooms do not offer double glazing to keep the noise out, nor air-con. You will get a small desk fan that most likely will have a problem with it, and they'll gladly swap it for another with a different kind of problem. This place is not for light sleepers!

We went in June, although not hot outside, the room heats up and the small desk fan won't cut it. Open the window and you'll be woken up by someone voicing their talent after a few beers.

Best Western states that all their hotels offer Coffee/Tea making facilities, not this one, so for all you English travellers, you'll have to wait till breakfast time or pay for a cup at the bar.

BTW, Belgium people are one of the friendliest in Europe.

Also,Do not visit the restaraunt Nord in the Grote Markt. I was given a second-hand steak due to a mix up by the waiters. A friendly witness also saw this incident so we demanded not paying after an argument. This definetely would breach any health and safety regulations.
