This was our second stay at the Cardiff, we love its Central location (a 5 minute walk from the Tram stop at Marie Josephine), a 2 minute walk to the square and 4 minutes to the beach. The rooms are spotlessly clean and comfortable, as is the en-suite bathroom. Some of the decoration may be a little strange (pictures of... More

We booked at the Cardiff for a Sunday night stay, there were four of us so I was a little apprehensive as I had organised the booking and it's difficult when you are trying to suit other people. As it turned out I need not have worried as my choice turned out to be an excellent and reasonably priced one... More

Stayed here with friends for a long weekend. The rooms are clean and spacious, great bathrooms, and the location is perfect. Breakfast set us up for the day and the owners are friendly and helpful. Great value - Belgium is not my usual destination of choice but I hope to return here soon.

Hotel Cardiff is a lovely place to stay. Our bedroom was large and very clean, the ensuite bathroom was spotless, and the service was fantastic, from the continental breakfast to the advice about the area. Hotel Cardiff is in the centre of Ostend, within walking distance of everything you might want to see, but isn't disturbed by outside noise nor... More

I've been a customer of "De Cardiff" for many years, but only as restaurant guest (not hotel guest). Their restaurant have been serving more or less the same menu for literally tens of years.. but it's a formula that works. Their steak is first class, their cod is first class. The set menus are great value for money. The owner... More

We have stayed in the hotel a couple of times. It offers updated, en-suite rooms with TV at competitive prices. The location is good. We did find it rather odd that residents pay for the room before staying, but beyond that all is good. Last week while staying elsewhere, we visited the Hotel Cardiff restaurant for a set menu meal... More

Found this Hotel several years ago when we ate in the restaurant, the food was fabulous. Since then we have stayed several times and have found the experience very relaxing. Free car parking is available some 15 minutes away.
