“Perfectly fine hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 5, 2013

Arrived at this hotel in the middle of the night for a one stop over. We were greeted by a warm smile and retired to our room where a nice bottle of red wine was waiting for us... with compliments of the management.
Window view wasn't great (inner court) and the bathroom is rather small, but then again it was only for a one nighter. For the same reasons I would definitely go back again

Room Tip: Ask for street view room and check if there are any building works in the vicinity

Everything about good location, breakfast quality and cosiness of the lobby, bar and restaurant has already been written in other reviews. We can only confirm that all staff members were very friendly and helpful.
Typical city hotel with - as could be expected - rather small bath/bedrooms, but all was clean and everything we needed was there. The rooms could use an " updating ", but as we could notice, they were working on it. There were already a number of renewed rooms available.
Would book there again for weekendtrips.

Room Tip: Rooms at the back side ( 4th floor ) are rather dark and have only a view on the fire escape stairwa...

Good location for a 1 night trip to sample some Belgian beer. Room was fine but got very hot during the night and fiddling with the thermostat did nothing. Breakfast was a good selection of hot and cold food.

good position 100 yards from casino, 250 from main square and seaside. on street parking if you are early enough(pay until 7pm and from 9am) but big underground park opposite. small but efficient reception comfortable seating if waiting and nice bar. efficient lifts, rooms small but ok (the odd fault but nothing serious). great brekky with just about every kind of bread you might want, lots of meats, cheeses etc and "english breakfast" as well. this was the second time there and went back without hesitation. i think it used to be a holiday inn express.

Room Tip: rooms overlooking leopold laan have a good view

Just had a Shearings New Year break (2013) at the Ramada Ostende. The hotel is centrally located very handy for the shops, beach and casino. A short walk ( 200m) took us to the Christmas Market with plenty of stalls, bars and an ice-rink for adults and children. The hotel food was very good with a hard working and creative chef organising things together with an experienced team of assistants. Ostende is not your typical run down Northern Europe seaside resort. There is much to see and do in the town and locality (Bruges, Ghent, Sluys etc)

My husband and I stayed at the Ramada,Ostend,for New Year 2012.
We found the rooms to be a little compact,but clean and comfortable.We enjoyed the
Meals served,but others in our party were less than impressed.
I am not sure if this hotel is a recent acquisition by the Ramada chain,but is is unlike any other Ramada I have ever stayed in before.
On the plus side,the New Years Eve Gala dinner was adequate,although,stretched out over a long period.The chef had gone to great lengths to make the meal as international as possible.The staff went out of their way to be helpful and cheerful at all times.
Beware,WiFi is only available if you take along your lap top.No Internet cafe style computers available.The lift is incredibly slow,but as we were on the eighth floor,the stairs were not an option.
Maybe not the best hotel in Ostend,but we enjoyed our stay very much,and,bear in mind,that eating out in Ostend is quite expensive.However,it is a marvellous town,the locals are great fun,and very charming.We love Ostend,and will return again,as we have done over the past twenty years.

Room Tip: Check with staff when making your booking. I believe that there are newly refurbished rooms availab...

We arrived with a tour coach at 19.45 our room 241 was ready, we asked for some coat hangers and a replacement bedside bulb at the desk, to be told we had to wait till the next day when housekeeping was there, We then asked for a table for two for dinner, we were told the restaurant was closing, at 20.00 !!! so all in all not a good first impression,
The bed was comfortable and the room quiet, there is an awful drain smell from the bathroom toilet, I kept spraying perfume to stop the smell.
Breakfast was fine a lot of choice , although the hot food was warm as it does not keep well in the containers, so we stuck to cold food.
The lady who cleaned our room was very nice and replaced hangers and bulbs sraight away,
Nor really the friendly hotel I had read about though, dont think I would return.

Room Tip: Rooms at the back quiet .
