“convenient, cosy and comfortable”
Reviewed December 14, 2010

As all other reviews have said, it is remarkably convenient, being just across the road from the station (which was handy for us as it was snowing when we arrived), close to the bus station and the tourist office, and only five to ten minutes walk or so from the town centre - and the area around is (or was on cold December evenings) livelier than the town centre.

Our room was not that large but perfectly adequate, and the king sized bed very comfortable. Although our room overlooked the side/main street junction, the double glazing cut out all sounds (and to comment on a previous reviewers complaint of it being cold, although our radiators were turned off when we arrived, it took less than half an hour for the room to be hot enough to turn one rad off!). The breakfast is good, although one word of advice - if you want the hot selection (bacon and scrambled egg), then get there early. We stayed four nights, and on two of them turned up for breakfast a little before nine and on both occasions the fried bacon (which was good) had gone, and on one the scrambled egg had also been had. Presumably these two hot items are not replaced when gone, unlike the rest which are. Nevertheless, it was a good selection. The other minor point is that although the rooms (or at least our room) was non-smoking, the corridor outside often smelled strongly of cigarette smoke, and I can only assume the cleaners/room staff smoke in the corridors as it was too strong a smell for it to be someone just passing along to the lift.

Despite the two minor points, I would certainly stay there again if visiting Namur.

I first visited this hotel in 2004. Since then I have been there several times a year for my work. I can only recommend the place, for all that is said here. Perfectly located (I remember having to catch a train at 5am once and blessing the fact that I could sleep until 4.50am!), very clean, free wifi, generous breakfast (although the quality of the orange juice could be improved), but especially excellent service. Nowadays I know every member of staff and they know me, but since the first time they were all exquisitely kind.

Cold room. Took a day to heat up. In my opinion this should be done before you arrive.
Breakfast ok.

The hotel is located across the street from the main entrance of the railwaystation. It's a five-minute walk to the city centre, which is worth a visit. My room was quiet - it faced the back of the hotel. The room and bathroom were quite large and very clean. There was no noise from other rooms, although they were occupied. Hot water, TV, kettle and fridge all in order. Staff polite and helpful. Good value for money, especially considering the exorbitant prices in the area. I used the hotel for a business trip to Brussels: it was so convenient, I'll do it again and have the advantage of a much cheaper hotel, pleasant, in a good location, one-hour train ride to Brussels.

We stayed here for 3 nights, when we were having a short break away. It's ideally (and centrally) located right by the station -perfect for us as we don't drive and so arrived by train.

The room was bright, clean and comfortable. We were on the 4th floor. The staff were really friendly and the breakfast was very good.

Namur is a very attractive town, with good shopping for its size, a pretty river, a citadel and lots of small bars where you can sit outside. Really pleasant for a weekend away.

  • Disliked — nothing -it was fine!

We stayed at the Hotel de Flandre in Namur for 1 nights. It's very centrally located, immediately opposite the railway station. Our room was very largewith large bathroom - the decor was relatively plain. Given the location, I was concerned that it could be noisy, but we stayed in a room at the back and could not tell it was in the middle of the city.

Very friendly service.

Why do so many 2* hotels insist on trying to claim a 3rd star? The Grand Hotel de Flandre has 3* written on everything from the coasters to the bill, but it does not make the hotel any nicer. While the place claims to have been remodeled in the last couple of years it is still rather drab. The rooms are small, the linens are coarse, and the breakfast selection is poor (cold meat and cheese, no fruit). And on Saturday night we were treated to pounding dance music (even with the window shut) until 2:30 AM.
