This is the second time i've stayed here, the first time was before a the refurb. I was a little disappointed that the old bar had dissapeared as it was cosy and inviting. There has been a decent job done on the dining room which is now quite pleasant, here are the good points and bad points and a summary.
This hotel is used by budget travel groups and if you're part of a package it's not a bad deal. The staff are friendly and accomodating, the hotel is very central and near to the beach and all the shops and the market. The breakfast is quite extensive but if you're a Brit you will be a bit disappointed as there's no bacon!,the food is very plain but plentiful. The beds seem quite new and are clean and comfortable.OK , here's the downside. There's only one small lift and this can present you with a problem if you arrive with a large group as none of the Hotel is on the ground floor, on saying this the lift seemed to work ok. Some of the rooms are a little small (not all) and the bathrooms are small but the shower was good and worked fine. The toilets in some of the rooms can be a bit whiffy. Found it strange that dogs are allowed in the dining room but there seems to be dogs everywhere in Ostend. To sum up if you like Ostend and Bruges like us and you are on a tight budget this place isn't as bad as some of the reviews suggest.
