Excellent and friendly staff, room was clean and comfortable but showed a little wear and tear. Didn't have the breakfast which at 20 euros seemed a little high. Parking was great and convenient just look for the sign after making the first left before the church
A great friendly and family oriented hotel within a few minutes walk of the Menin Gate and restaurants in the town square. Free parking close by. Only an hours drive from Dunkirk Ferry Terminal it is a great place to base yourself for either a WW1 experience, remembrance of just a European holiday. Great breakfast included and friendly staff with a vast range of knowledge of local amenities, museums and trips.
This was our second time staying at this hotel. No it's not the Ritz by any means but it is literally on the doorstep of the main square in Ypres which means you can have a drink or two and not worry about driving or taxis. It's clean, tidy, warm and functional. The bathroom could do with an update, but for the price, a great little stopover.
We were allocated a fabulously spacious room, with views over Market Square. The furnishings were a little tired and dated, but it was inmaculately clean, the beds were super comfy, and the heating most efficient during the very cold days we were there. The thing that set this hotel apart from any others were the hosts, Saskia and Kris. They have been in the hotel industry for years and it shows. They were most hospitable and super-friendly, and their knowledge of the area fantastic. We were having trouble getting a battlefield tour last-minute. Kris picked up the phone, and put us in touch with the fabulous Annette, who put together a tailor-made tour for us. The Hotel's breakfast was also top class, with the ever-cheery Kris always close by. He never missed a beat. We also had lunch in their dining room. The vol au vents were the best - the pastry superb.
This ancient city is rich with history, beginning with raiding by the Romans in 1 BC. During World War I, the town was nearly destroyed. The original Cloth Hall in Ypres was built in 1304, and was carefully rebuilt after the war. The hall is part of a complex recognized as a UNESCO World Heritage site.
