“Decent hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2012

We travel to Ostend at least once a year and have stayed at the Du Parc since 2009 on four or five occasions.

The rooms are smallish but they are comfortable and clean. Shower cubicles are a little cramped. In room televisions are old fashioned.

The hotel is very well located, tram stop right outside and the breakfast buffet is fresh and plentiful. We have always found the service charming and the owner once opened the restaurant early for us for breakfast when we had to be away sharp in the morning.

The double rooms at the back are a bargain if you don't mind not having a street view and are significantly quieter especially over e.g New Years Eve.

Parking generally is a pain in the proverbial in Ostend. The best compromise on price/location we have found is by the station.

Room Tip: Rooms at the back are cheaper by about twenty Euro a night and are quieter but can be a bit gloomy.

This hotel restaurant is a must to visit in Ostend, a real institution.
The decor is beautiful art deco, with inside and outside seating.
Coffee is served in silver filter pots.
Great snacks served with beer or wine.
So everything is fantastic, but they have to score poor due to the service.
The waiters think they are far above serving us people, they are unattentive, rude even to sarcastic!
So go for the ambiance the food and drink but grit your teeth over the service here,

This hotel is located conveniently near the beach, near to the Casino of Ostend. The breakfast buffet is as it should be: fresh and enough choice. Very nice service. Rooms quite small but tidy and efficient.

I've traveled all over the world and I would say this is near the top of my list of hotels to never stay at again. The only positives are it's location and nice staff....that's it. One night of worried sleep (based on hotel room) and then I got out of there.

Maybe, just maybe I got the only terrible room in the hotel, but I don't think so.....

Room Tip: pick another hotel

Cheap hotel in the centre of ostend. Room and bathroom are very small. You can hardly turn around in the bathroom. It's clean though. Breakfast is ok but nothing special. Beer at the cafe downstairs is excellent but the chairs are old and awefull to sit on. We reserved a parking space but the entrance and the place itself was so small that you could only park there with a helicopter. That happens all the time according to the reception. So just sleep there and enjoy the terrace of agua del mar e.g.

A nice hotel,clean and decent rooms,no grand luxury but unbeatable location ! Shopping streets begin littereally at the hotel-entrance, with the sea and the long beautiful promenade just behind the hotel. You can also leave your car in the hotel car parking, for a daily fee, but it is in a secure locked garage (which is about 10 min walk away though,but easy enough to find) and catch the tram right outside the frontdoor,for easy travel all along the coastline!
simple but good breakfast included in room rates and certainly worth the money too. We enjoy staying at this hotel, but it is mostly because of the excellent location. Though the staff are friendly and helpfull,and know a thing or two about the region! Talk to them for good tips on where to go and what to see and do around Oostende.

Room Tip: The rooms to the back of the hotel really have no view what-so-ever, unless you like staring at a gr...
