B&B Hortensia
Ranked #5 of 43 Ieper (Ypres) B&B and Inns
Reviewed September 2, 2011

We stayed one night at the Hortensia, what a nice place to stay. The room was super clean, up to date and the service was AWESOME. Located within walking distance to the main square and the menin gate, this B & B is a good choice. The food was great and there is free WIFI. We toured with Frontline Tours, one of the best tour guides I have ever had, named Lionel. My only iff would be that the town of Ypres closes EARLY. After 10pm, no resteraunts and no bars so eat EARLY. Cheers!

B & B Hortensia is definitely the place to stay when visiting the lovely city of Ypres. The location is central to the city square, parking is close by, rooms are comfortable and the owners, Michael and Veronique, are friendly and accommodating. For Australians visiting the battlefields area around Ypres, we highly recommend the Hortensia as an affordable, alternative choice to what can be, impersonal hotel accommodation. We will certainly recommend Hortensia to our friends and hope to return in the future.

The Hortensia is a pleasant B&B in a handy location on the southern entry to the town. We had two rooms that had recently been repainted and, while they were simply furnished, were warm and comfortable. Breakfast each day was excellent - individally cooked with fresh breads from the bakery down the road. Central Ieper was an easy walk, and the old town walls and moat were nearby. The owners were new and still finding their feet, but were very helpful with suggestions on places to visit etc. The only concern was the noise from traffic on the busy cobblestone street. I think in summer a room facing the street would be a pain, as you would need the window open for ventilation and the coblestones really do make a racket. Apart from that, no complaints, but I think I would look for a place off the main road if I was visiting in summer.

Michael & Veronique gave us a very warm & friendly greeting - making us tea + coffee with cake on arrival. Veronique speaks excellent English.
The rooms were bright, modern & extremely clean. Tea & Coffee making facilities were provided for the rooms.
The breakfast was Continental, but also included cooked eggs & bacon. A great start to a day of sightseeing.
The Hortensia is only a 10 minute stroll to the centre of Ypres.
Parking can be a bit difficult, but we managed to find a space close to the Hortensia after waiting patiently for a little while.
A few doors along was 'The Ramparts' - a really nice bar with a museum at the back. It is worth a visit.
We stayed 2 nights & wish we had booked in for longer. I can thoroughly recommend this B&B and would book it again if I return to Ypres.

Room Tip: Our rooms were at the back & were quiet

My family and i (6 adults in total) stopped at this B & B on the way to Gremany for the night. from the moment we rang the doorbell we were welcomed by open and warm arms with a fresh cup of coffee and cake. What a lovley touch after a long journey from the UK.
The rooms were very clean, modern, spacious with a very comfortable bed. outside was quiet all night long.
The next morning we were welcomed with the best breakfast of our 12 day trip in many different countries. Fresh bread rolls from the bakery across the road, as light as a cloud. A fantastic, heavenly array of homemade preserve ranging from traditional jam to kiwi. We were asked if we would like bacon and eggs which was greatly welcomed as these were the best scrambled eggs i have ever taken. 10/10 for brerakfast.
We normally stay in calais on the way to Gremany twice a year but we will now be stopping over at the B & B Hortensia, thank you to Veronigue and Michael x
