“Fantastic Hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 October 2011

We stayed here on the 3rd October, 2011. From the moment we walked into the reception until the time we left we were made feel so welcome and the manager and other staff could not do enough to help us. Very genuine people who were trying to make our stay memorable. We were given an early check in and upgraded to a bigger room though I am sure the room we initially booked would have been lovely. The hotel has been totally refurbished in a "soft military style" - very unusual! Because of the great military history of this area it seems very apt that the hotel be done in military style and colours. The walls and ceilings are dark colours along with a black wooden floor. Our bed was large and comfortable - King size or bigger. The mattress was firm with a lovely soft topper and we found this bed to be amazingly comfortable. The bed had crisp white bottom sheet and snuggly white doona on top. Probably one of the most comfortable beds in our 7 weeks of travel so far. The bathroom was spotless and all very functional with good space - shower over bath tub and towels were good size and new. The room had individual air conditioner and also opening windows for fresh air. Curtains were excellent for blocking out street lights. A continental buffet Breakfast was included in our tarrif of 99 euros. There was plenty to choose from including lovely grain loaf, croissants, buns, rolls, boiled eggs, fresh fruit salad, cereals, fresh juice, tea and coffee, cheese, ham etc. The breakfast staff were so friendly and helpful. The Menin Gate is five minutes walk from the hotel and many cafes and restaurants in the area. Station within walking distance and we trundled our bags to and from here. Suggest you try a cafe called Klantenkaart Poppy Pizzeria and Steakhouse on Meensestraat 16 at Ieper as it is much less expensive than the other cafes closer to the hotel.

Booked into the Hotel O at Ieper for two nights.Recently renovated in old time war theme looks great very authentic.Centrally located to the main square.The Menin gate is only a few hundred metres up the road.You have to pay for parking which is on the street and NOT guaranteed to be close.Overall a great hotel and Ieper is a must see.

Room Tip: Rooms a pretty much all the same,although we had the majors room overlooking the square.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 August 2011

We have just arrived home from a three night stay at the new Hotel O in Ypres.
A very pleasant and comfortable base for the area.
We booked a Captain's room - slightly larger than standard, so works ok with the rather dark colour scheme. Hotel is themed for WW1. Beds are large and very comfortable. Bathrooms very clean and streamlined. A little extra storage and a bathroom shelf would be useful to add, but generally we like minimalism.
Excellent breakfast - fresh juice and good coffee. Staff are pleasant, welcoming and helpful.
There isn't a bar or much public area in the hotel, but it is next to the Grote Market so not really a problem. The breakfast "canteen" is light and spacious, with an outside terrace with deckchairs. This area will be developed more for guests to relax in through the day, I believe.

Room Tip: Ask for a quiet room, and book the larger size.

This hotel is centrally located and is obviously quite new and although the rooms are a little on the small size, they are very comfortable, staff are very friendly and helpful and breakfast is fresh and plentiful. There is a decor theme which is WW1 which is quite quirky but interesting.
