Location is amazing. Right next to the city centre (Kursaal), close to the beach. The rooms with beach view are very spacious and have great view over the boulevard. Breakfast is decent, spa is good, conference rooms are decent, service is decent. And that's the issue. Most things are decent. The hotel lacks spice, character. Apart from the location and... More

Stayed here for 3 nights this week with family, including 2 young kids. Very pleased with it and have already booked to go back in May. Location couldn't be better, in the centre of town and right on the beach. Breakfasts are super and there's a nice bar for a drink in the evening before bed. The bar manager is... More

I have reviewed this hotel some years ago, and returned to find that time has stood still. It it looks very much as it did then. It is now due for some maior redecorating. The front rooms are stll large but badly in need of an upgrade. Our room had a funny smell. After complaining housekeeping sent somebody with a... More

By far the most appealing element of this hotel is the proximity to the sea and the views from the bedrooms, restaurants and meeting rooms. It is also walking distance to the town centre bars and restaurants. However, rooms did not have the clean/fresh feeling and are a bit outdated. Considering it's a wellness hotel, there were no real spa... More

Hotel Andromeda has a nice location and you may have a nice picture when looking out of window to the see but nothing else. Personnel is kind and helpful enough. Hotel parking is terrible, you should be very careful if you want to get there. Rooms were not so clean, we found used ashtray and someones box of cigarettes there...... More

Just happen to spend 7 nights in this hotel over last two weeks on business. Must agree with some of the reviewers that the hotel is much better than painted by most on TripAdvisor. I can compare with my recent experience in Knokke and this one beats on many dimensions. To be specific: + Underground parking available + Very friendly... More

Had we read the reviews regarding this hotel it is doubtful we would have booked to stay there as they did not paint it in a very good light. However, we found the hotel to be everything we wanted for our short break, with attentive and friendly staff, and of course excellent food as you would expect in Belgium. Our... More

Central location, right at the beach. Breakfast was lovely, although for additional 16Eur pp. Parking 20eur, sauna 13eur. Room was very basic and small. Bathroom needed some serious TLC. Again no tea or coffee making facilities. WiFi was playing up, maybe because the hotel was full. Staff was very friendly and helpful! Do not expect high standard and you'll leave... More

Excellent position on the beachfront and right in the town centre, and for me even better in that the entrance is about 20 metres away from the stage door of the Kursaal Theatre where I was working. The building wouldn’t win any prizes for architecture – it is a great slab like concrete monolith probably built in the 1970s …... More

Great location, stunning view from the balcony. The room was very big and so the beds, very nice. Overall we had a nice stay, but the room was smelling badly like someone had been smoking a million cigars in the room. It was not nice!
