Hotel O

Boutique hotel in Antwerp

The immediate selling point of this excellent-value 39-room hotel is its unbeatable location, with oblique views across the square to the cathedral frontage. Expect moody decor with baths or showers in black-framed glass boxes and – in most rooms – giant 17th-century paintings reproduced as either headboards or covering whole walls.

The hotel is lovingly managed, down to the pralines on the bed. Enter via a little foyer bar lined with 1950s radios and audio equipment. The €14.50 breakfast is a full brunch.
