The room was quite spacious (for a single) and was clean. I also had a nice view on the harbour entrance from the windows. The bathroom was up to standards with...

The hotel is optimally located in the centre of the Ostend marina. It quite comfortable - with a cosy lobby, tiny but very efficient lift, and rather modern rooms. The rooms are comfortable to sleep but with limited space - e.g . it is difficult to find space for two open suitcases. And there is this particular folding bathroom door...

Every year we visit Ostend in February, combining sight- seeing with a good meal As hotel we always book Le Bassin and this year too we realized who good it is. Nice, well- kept rooms, quiet, although near the port of Ostend and a very good breakfast. What else do you want?

Stayed here for one night. Fantastic rooms on the seafront almost. Easily accessible car park. We had a lovely dinner and the following day had a fantastic breakfast. A great hotel with very friendly staff. There are many restraints nearby if you fancy eating out but the food at the hotel was fantastic.

The rooms may be rather small, but still have a bath available. Comfy bed. Nice location, nearby the station and the yacht harbour. Noisy by day but rather quiet during the night. Very good breakfast which attracts non-guests too. Excellent coffee!
