Adequate - but not great for business

Posted Dec 9, 2015 on Hotels
Staying here was like stepping back in time. The entrance hall was opulent and welcoming,and location excellent. The breakfast was perfectly adequate, and staff friendly. However, the room was basic - the shower required you to crouch in the bath (though the water pressure was a thing to behold - I felt like I'd been ex foliated!). I needed to do some work in the room - the WiFi was sketchy, the seating and desk cramped for working, and the lighting appalling. There were no tea and coffee making facilities in the room. It was OK for one night, but not for any longer.

They took my reservation, and email confirmed rollout bed was available. But when I got there they couldn't accomodate me, wife and daughter. They would not let me sleep on an air mattress on floor, but would only sell me a second room. We had to find another hotel. They insisted on charging cancellation.

Almost to the beach

Posted Nov 13, 2014
Pros: Location
Cons: Staff should greet you. Seem as though they're happy you are there. Give the impression that you are not inconveniencing them.
Location: The coast is right there. Oostende is a charming and very walk-able small city.
The front desk staff while not hostile was not welcoming either. The rooms pictured on the website are nothing like the room we had. Which is okay in an older hotel, but it didn't appear to be the same facility. The rooms was tidy, but worn. The breakfast was "okay", the dining room was small and (very) crowded. When will buffet dining rid itself of the need for small counters along the wall and get to buffet type tables on can get around? Really, have the guest tables be along the wall. Parking was at the public parking across the street. The hotel is one block from the beach. It's Oostende, it's Belgium, the Hotel Imperial could do better.

A good hotel

Posted Aug 30, 2013
I enjoyed staying at this hotel. It had a bit of old world charm. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Although I was there on business this would make a good holiday base. The beach was a few minutes away as were a wide range of restaurants and shops. The coastal tram stopped just round the corner and the railway station was just two stops away on this. The breakfast buffet gave a wide variety and was available to 10:30, later than a lot of hotels.
