Wouldn’t recommend expensive basic hotel
Expensive for what you get Stayed two nights thank goodness couldn’t stay any longer Payed for a double had two small very uncomfortable twin beds no view it was awful over looked the back of a building. Did not have a shower very small bath the toilet was practically sitting in the bath, lucky I’m small if I was a larger person would not of fit on the toilet. No extras tea coffee no shampoos, very basic. Staff not helpful or friendly. No parking One positive is the location good location in town and close to the beach. Overall I wouldn’t recommend Can get a much nicer hotel for the money

2/10 Poor

Worse I've ever stayed in
Probably the worst hotel I've ever stayed in the beds were very small and uncomfortable, the room also very small and the bathroom was very poorly designed with a see through door so no privacy and the toilet position was such that I didn't fit in the space. We will never be staying here again

Ostend, a surprise
A 1 night stay in Ostend, during an extended stay in Belgium. Hotel location excellent. Plenty of local eateries for all wallets around. Hotel reasonable, fixtures a little worn. Lovely breakfast, fresh croissants, fruit loaf. Price ok at 62€. If I was staying longer in Ostend, wouldn't stay here.

Nice hotel well situated for all amenities and the Xmas market if I have any criticism it’s that the bathroom is quite small. Every thing else was excellent
