We arrived late and this was the only place with a room available. We paid in advance (big mistake). The room was at the back. The window was broken, large enough to walk through, opening onto the fire escape so we were afraid to sleep. There was also the noise of a refridgeration unit going off and on all night.... More

I really enjoyed my stay in this hotel. We had a new refurnished room (I've heard the whole hotel has been renovated) up to full standards of a 3 star hotel. We also had dinner in the restaurant, and although it is famous for it's fish specialities, I took a filet mignon with pepper sauce with i really recommend! The... More

All rooms have or are in the process of being totally refurbished. My room was excellent, overlooking the square. Only minutes from the beach, shops and tram stop (Marie Joseplein). From the railway station, catch the Centrumbus which stops only 100m from the hotel for 1.20 euros instead of an expensive taxi ride.

I'll start with the positives - the location of this hotel is great, in a lovely square close to the shopping streets and nice restaurants/cafés. Positives dealt with. The lift was terrifying - no sides to it, angina almost kicked in. We entered the room to find ancient décor and a smell of impending doom. There was no toilet paper,... More

Ok, so the Hotel Ambassadeur probably hasn't changed very much since since the Germans occupied the city! Most small hotels in Oostendeare the same. The lift is quirky, the beds have done a million miles and there is always at least two light bulbs not working. The TV has very few channels, not even BBC World, so brush up on... More

Our room was terrible. This is the worst hotel I ever had. The room was really old fashioned. The bathroom: the shower didn't work. The only good things were the location and the breakfast (buffet) I was happy that it was only for one night.

The hotel has an excellent location: on the market square and at walking distance of all the things you need to see when you are in Ostend! The staff is extremely friendly and helpful and when you stay in the hotel you must try the restaurant downstairs, the best seafood I ever had! What more do you need!
