On your approach to the Hotel Ambassade, you may wonder “What am I getting into?” However, once you get past the seedy environment, you will find a well-run and attractive small hotel. The hotel is located about halfway between the railway station and the city center. That makes it a longish walk either way, but it is not excessive. It is a long way from the hippodrome, and longer still from the American military cemetery. You approach from the street by passing rows of rental single-car garages. The hotel itself is an old (not historic) building across from a modern one-story structure that appears to be a light industrial firm.

The interior is well maintained. The décor and furniture are not at all shabby. We noticed some tobacco smell in the hallways but none at all in our room. It appears that one person runs everything, from the front desk to the breakfast. He is an older gentleman given to wearing a long shirt, knee length trousers, and flip-flops. He clearly knows his job. He listens to your questions and explains carefully and fully.

There is a tiny elevator: big enough for two people or one person with luggage.

The rooms are about the normal size for a hotel. The fixtures all work fine. You will probably want to use your own toiletries, as the supplied items are a mixture of regular brands that you can find in the supermarket or pharmacy. One odd feature of our room was that the bathroom door was translucent glass. It provided enough privacy, but if you need to turn on the light your partner might be disturbed.

Breakfast is continental. Don’t expect bacon and eggs. You will find cold meat, cheese, cereal, bread, rolls, croissants, fruit, and packaged waffles. Among the condiments is Biscoff (Speculoo) butter, which happens to be the most wonderful substance known to mankind.

The clientele seems to be mostly business travelers. Many of the tables in the breakfast room were occupied by groups of men in matching polo shirts—clearly in town for some kind of job.

The hotel is in a very quiet position in a courtyard shared with some (I believe) offices, therefore at night is very silent.
Beds are very comfortable and rooms are big enough both for the Holiday makers and the business traveller as I am. The super fast free Wi-Fi allows you to catch up with work (or with FB friends ehehehe!).
Breakfast is surprising: delicious, copious and varied and can satisfy the "big eaters " as I once was or for people on a dieat as I am now.
The breakfast room is very nice and romantc I'd dare say.
It is within walking distance from a good number of various restauts able to satisfy anyone (Chinese, Italian, Gourmet, Belgian etc...).
Plumbing is just OUTSTANDING: I had the best shower in my hotel life.
Maybe the bathrooms would need some "refresh", but it's really a minor problem

A nice, small hotel in a quiet neighborhood, but in less than 10 minutes walking from the city center through a beautiful park. The rooms are cozy with comfortable beds. The breakfast is excellent. There is a free parking lot in front of the hotel.

I visited this Hotel after overruling my Companies Travel Agent who were keen to put me in a place 25 miles away from Waregem where I needed to be. It turned out to be the best decision I have ever made.
The Hotelier is just about the nicest person I have met on my travels and nothing is too much trouble. He is attentive and helpful without being imposing and makes his Hotel feel like a home from home.
The rooms are huge compared to most 4* hotels and are very well furnished and kept in a traditional style.
The bathroom was big too and the shower marvellous.
Breakfast was varied and lots of it served in Continental style.
If every Hotel was run in such a friendly and efficient manner, there would be lots of competition but this one is in a class of its own. If it were 25 miles away from where I need to be next time I am in Belgium, I will willingly make the trip.
