“Location is the best!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 6, 2012

We recently had a teambuilding event at this hotel.. 25 people in separate rooms, a large meeting room and of course food and drinks.

The meeting room, the food and the drinks were perfect! There was also wireless internet throughout the hotel.

The rooms were ok but could do with some renovations. There is no airconditioning in the rooms and the ones facing the beach, have direct sunlight in the afternoon which makes the room really hot! They are however very clean. I had the fortune to have a room on the top floor with a large terrace and 2 loungers, with a spectacular view of the sea & beach (but the terrace was not very clean so I would not want to sunbathe there. No real complaints re my room except for the shower. This is in the bath which is fine as there was a glass protection door but when you want to take a shower, you need to hold the shower head yourself which is a little inconvenient. Some rooms only have a curtain in the bath which is not very hygienic.

The staff is truly wonderful! Smiling faces everywhere and very helpful.

The location is TOP! You walk out of the hotel and you are on the beach and right next to the casino. Perfect!!! Lots of nice little restaurants nearby on the promenade (try the Bottarga). Very clean beach as well.

I would def recommend the hotel for a week's holiday and also for meetings.

Room Tip: Top floor (but these are of course the more expensive rooms)

When we arrived in the room it was cold, the heating had not been turned on. The staff looked scruffy. The room looked like it needed a bringing to this century ...
It was very clean and had a beautiful seaview.

I partook in a seminar in this hotel. Staff was friendly and professional, and the food was excellent. The rooms where the sessions took place needed some freshing up, but all in all my impression of the hotel is still stylish.
The rooms were standard size, normally equipped, but the rooms not facing the sea or the casino have a sad view.
All in all a good experience.

The location at the seaside and the Casino is as good as you can get. Meeting rooms have amazing seaside views and the staff is friendly and classy.

All is well until you go opstairs to the rooms: When on the non-renovated floors you'll step out of the elevator right into the 80's... The renovated floors are better but it's obvious that the rooms are not modern at all.

All in all not a bad choice if you don't mind the outdated rooms and if you value the location. Personally I will not go there again though

In October 2011, my wife and I stayed just one night in this very modern but extremely quiet and comfortable hotel, right on the seafront in Oostende, Belgium. Certainly not the cheapest hotel but well worth that little bit extra to have a more special night's stay! A great buffet breakfast, overlooking the beach (even on a blustery morning!), with a really good selection of fare! The rooms were modern, very clean and had absolutely everything that one might have needed for your stay! Great showers, loads of hot water and lovely crisp bed-linen! Just lovely. The staff were very friendly, extremely helpful and spoke excellent English, thank goodness! A really nice hotel!

The Andromeda is not a modern hotel, but still oozes class and comfort. The staff are very polite and helpful, speaking English, Flanders, and French.
The breakfast is absolutely wonderful with hot and cold offerings along with a great self-sevice coffee machine.
There was a super jazz trio in the bar on the weekend I was there along with a not-so-noisy respectful crowd that allowed people to enjoy such top quality music appearing on that night.
It sits right on the beach. The main avenue of the town seems to lead straight to it.
It was a privilege to stay there!

The location of the hotel is perfect but the room rate is expensive for what you get. We didn't have a minibar or refrigerator in the room, no water, no waterboiler and no airconditioning. These are all things I think you may expect when you call yourself a 4 star hotel.
The buffet breakfast was good and the rooms are clean and Ok, but nothing more than that.
So the hotel is ok, but not worth the price they ask.
