Great location but a tad on the noisy side so requesting a quiet room you may get one towards the rear of the hotel. Just opposite the railway station and the tram station is just 3-4 minutes walk away its location is excellent. Right opposite the locks for the inner "basin" where there are some pretty impressive boats moored. A... More

Nice hotel, good location,pleasant staff, and a very good continental breakfast. Rooms small but had all you needed. Our room (No.14) was on the front of the hotel, we were not disturbed by any noise, but you wake up very early due to the curtains not been thick enough to block out the morning light a 5am wake up is...

Very hard working, friendly and professional team running the hotel. The food was also very good. If we decide to re visit Ostend we wont hesitate to book again.See you... More

The rooms may be rather small, but still have a bath available. Comfy bed. Nice location, nearby the station and the yacht harbour. Noisy by day but rather quiet during the night. Very good breakfast which attracts non-guests too. Excellent coffee!

Great location on the Visserquay just opposite the station. But it is noisy from traffic and the bridges going up to allow yachts in and out. The room was very hot. There seemed to be hot water pipes under the bathroom flooring which kept it hot. You could open the double glazing windows but then you enjoyed the noise! On... More

The staff was friendly and helpful. The hotel offers single rooms with good space. The breakfast consists of an amazing buffet, with different sorts of bread, brioches, juice, etc, and good coffee, all this for a very good price. Free wi.fi is available.

This Hotel/restaurant was a pleasurable place to stop off for lunch, it was a lovely sunny day so we decided to eat al fresco and this place was perfect, We called into several restaurants to view the lunchtime menu prior to choosing this one but nothing really got our taste buds tingling as much as the "Tapas de luxe" (hot...
