One of the major issues in this hotel is the wi- fi connection. It is either absent, intermittent, or giving you false info. that you are connected to the internet, when in fact you are not. I ended up going to a near restaurant , pub , or any sitting place to connect to wi-fi, when I could have been...

No Tv in the room. Very basic layout. Comfortable bed. Location good. Biggest issue for me is that there was no way to control the temperature in the room. Luckily it was cool at night so I opened the windows and was fine. But it would have been uncomfortable of that wasn't the case. Breakfast was good.

...but a number of things are outdated (i.e furniture), improvable (lift service, cleaning overall) or simply not working (TV in my room). It has potential but needs a significant additional effort to bring it up-to-date. Pretty expensive.

Good location. Breakfast was acceptable but not outstanding. Rooms were acceptable, however cleaning was not properly done with bathroom not being cleaned. Coffe cups were not washed and bed not properly made up. Television was also not working properly. Not good value for money!

The Royal Astrid defies categorization. Everything is a bit wonky from the entry to the well meaning owners to the staircase with steps too short and low. When we visited we were left alone most nights but there were issues with the entry and room keys. One night our daughters room would not open and so with no body to...

It's rare to find such genuinely friendly and helpful staff as I did at the Royal Astrid. Owners Ingrid and Mario are always quick to make you feel at home. Take their advice on where to eat, what beers are the best, and where to go for day trips. They were extremely helpful and I enjoyed every minute of my...

Five of us stayed at Hotel Royal Astrid for a night whilst cycling across Belgium and we were awarded a very warm welcome. Space was found indoors for our cycles and our rooms had recently been renovated, upgraded and redecorated. The rooms were clean and fresh and once the inevitable minor problems are sorted (e.g. our TV remote didn't have...

Good location with a good possibility for parking. The rooms has a good equipment and has a fine size for 2 persons. The service was excellent and there was a good choice off food for breakfast. It would be good, if there was an opportunity to have something to eat, when arriving late in the evening.
