We spent one night at this hotel, just due to our rigorous schedule, but would happily have spent more. It was our first visit to Ypres, and should we be lucky enough to return, we will definitely stay here again. It was very close to the Menin Gate and other sights, and in a very nice section of town. Some of the hotel rooms I have stayed in in Europe have been quite small, but this was very roomy - there were 3 of us sharing the space and were quite comfortable.
We drove from Brussels to Ypres. GPS is essential. Entry via the Menin gates took us directly into the central square. Approximately half-way along the square you will see the Hotel O's sign directing you to a street on the left. The hotel is no more than approx 20 metres from that point. So easy to find. Don't try to check in before 2.00pm. This procedure is firm.
The owner is a charming and very engaging man who makes a point of meeting guests and asking about their visits. He is a mine of great information on the sites to visit. In our case, he suggested we visit a Belgian military cemetery on the way to the German cemetery at Langemark. It was well worth the small diversion to spend time at this lovely and peaceful burial and commemoration place.
"Quiet street just off town centre and near rampart"
Very comfortable beds, friendly and helpful staff. Good continental breakfast. No restaurant for evening meals but loads of restaurants near by. Some free outdoor parking in yard at back of hotel. Hotel undergoing further refurbishment and extension at present but this did not effect our stay.
Excellent large rooms in a small friendly hotel, well positioned near the centre of Ypres. Public car parking opposite hotel. Excellent breakfast with lots of choice. Mini-bar all included in the price!
