“Not for me”
Reviewed September 3, 2013

Solo travellers beware you may be offered room 118, worst room I've ever seen in a hotel! I rejected it. Food pretty bad - some sort of onion soup, very salty, followed by chicken curry. After that I ate out!! Drilling and banging began at 8.30am but I was out on coach trips. It would have been impossible to have a lie-in. On the positive side the room was clean and the bed comfortable. Hotel not worth the single supplement. Breakfast just about adequate, always the same.

Booked two nights here, staying with a group of friends for a BBQ contest in Oostende, and there was not much else available. Fair is fair, it is a 2-star hotel, so I did not check in with high expectations. The good news: The room was pretty clean and the breakfast OK for a 2-star.
Hotel is located in one of the main shopping streets of Oostende, alas a very dirty street with lots of rubbish on the floor. Parking in the neighborhood is really expensive! About the average airport parking price and that for an unprotected parking lot!
Check in took ages. Alley was full of dirty laundry and other things that did not belong there, (and blocked the fire escape!). Room started falling apart. Doorknobs missing, toilet seat loose, squeaky floor, squeaky bed, and a horrible view on some drain pipes and repaired wall. Despite the note that towels would be changed when left in the shower, they were just hung out to dry.
What used to be the fitness room is now a place to store old rubbish, cupboards, mattress etc , which can be seen from what is supposed to be the terrace as there are no blinds at the window. The terrace itself is a tiled piece of the rooftop. Missing all charm. Actually, I did not find there was much charm left in the whole of Oostende. A pity, as it used to be a really nice city.
Again, my expectations where not high, but for the price I paid, this was a real bad deal. At 50% of the cost price I would have given it an average rating.

Good hotel! Not awesome, but the price is cheap, so what can you expect? Clean room and really good bed! Also breakfast was above expectation, with a lot of choice!
The location is also great, in the centre, just 100m from the beach!

We payed 500 EUR for one week for a double room and we had low expectations but the rooms were very small, the beds were small and only 60cm wide. We had to stand in the door to use the toilet in the room. Breakfast was ok, location was perfect except that someone was playing load music outside the hotel early in the morning.

We ended up in Ostend after a day in Bruges and hadn't booked a hotel. We found this hotel through booking.com. It was the cheapest hotel and as we just wanted a clean place to sleep, nothing more, we chose this hotel. We were surprised about how comfortable and clean the hotel was. Not to mention the central location. A free breakfast in the morning was an added bonus too. Would recommend to anyone looking for simple but good.

Location of this hotel is in the centre of Ostend, it is brilliant for shopping, beach and the harbour.The radiator in our room wasn't working so we had to move to another room where the radiator had to be bled as it was only hot on one side! The ensuite was very small ie: your knees where touching the wall when you sat on the toilet!! The breakfast was good but evening meal was very poor quality. The staff were very polite and helpful shame about the room and evening meals.
