Stay at the Hotel Ambassadeur during your time in West Flanders. This reasonably priced Ostend hotel is well located on the city’s main square, the Wapenplein, and within walking distance of the beach called the Klein Strand. The Hotel Ambassadeur is a cozy, old-fashioned hotel that was fully renovated in March of 2011. Its facilities include a well-equipped meeting room, banqueting facilities, a lounge bar, and a sauna. The hotel restaurant, called Arno’s Café, specializes in fresh seafood; in warm weather, patrons can dine at outdoor tables and watch pedestrians strolling through the square. Wi-Fi internet access is free both in guest rooms and in the hotel’s public areas. From its location at the northeast corner of Ostend, on the Wapenplein square, the Hotel Ambassadeur offers easy access to some of the best shopping in Belgium: a modern shopping center called Feest, popular chain stores along Kapellestraat street, and designer clothing boutiques along Adolf Buylstraat. Also within walking distance are the De Plate Oostend Historical Museum, housed in a 19th-century summer residence of King Leopold; the James Ensorhuis, a small museum in the Belgian artist’s former home; and the Kursaal Casino. Along the harbor to the east are the North Sea Aquarium (Noordzeeaquarium), a floating maritime museum on board a Belgian merchant marine ship called the Driemaster Mercator, and the Klein Strand, a small, sandy beach.
The peace and quiet. Nobody bothered me.
Outlook over the square, easy access to shops and restaurants
The hotel was right in the middle of the town and the views of the square from our room on the seventh floor were spectacular. THe room was all that you could ask for and the staff were extremly helpful and an exelent use of the english language by all the staff. THe car park facilities were out of this world with secure underground parking at a very reasonable rate. I would be happy for you to put my email address on my review so I can forward my comments to anyone asking for a further review I will not mention the price I stayed at the hotel for but my partner and myself were extremly happy with the hotel and are looking at returning soon for another break.
Although I have travelled oround the europe a lot and this is one thing very few hotels do have in the rooms but a kettle would have been nice but the resturant did serve tea and coffee
Amazing location, right in the centre of everything. Have stayed before and will stay again. Lovely comfortable bed, not the usual rock hard sort.
Still not happy with the ease of access to the hotel by the public, but we know now so we don't leave anything of value in the room
good all round, friendly staff, for the price it was excellent. did have a little problem finding it. as it is in a pedestrian zone.but parking was only 500 meters away. very central, loads of bars, restaurants etc....
