We stayed two nights on a low-budget coach holiday (Gold Crest, also recommended) and didn't have high expectations for the hotel, but were very pleasantly surprised.
The room was clean, comfortable and very well designed (though slightly more leg room in the bathroom would have been welcome). The bed was very comfortable. All this only two rooms along the corridor from Mandy's 118 (see previous post).
The lift was fine, as were the stairs.
Breakfast was excellent: continental promised and so bacon and scrambled eggs an unexpected bonus (my personal preference is for bacon cooked until it won't bend, but perhaps that's just me).
Make sure you visit the nearby Ensor Museum.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Come and experience the authentic, traditional atmosphere of the Hotel Albert II and stay right in the centre of the wonderful seaside resort of Ostend. With its simple and elegant decor, this homely hotel boasts cosy, comfortable accommodation. Go for an early walk on the beach, 150 metres from the hotel, or wake up slowly with a good cup of coffee before exploring the neighbourhood. Right around the corner from the bustling main square and next to several shops, bars and restaurants, you will always have some form of entertainment close at hand. Stroll along the wonderful marina and watch the ships of various sizes come in. The emblematic St Peter and St Paul's church is also a sight not to be missed. ... more less
