“Lovely place in a great location!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 July 2014

Very comfortable room which I couldn't fault at all, friendly staff who all speak English and a wonderful location on the Grote Markt. While I was there, there was a fair in front of the hotel, a parade, lovely ethnic bands and a firework display behind the hotel one night, which was all great fun! The breakfast is wonderful, a wide selection of buffet continental things (cheeses, meats, breads and so on) all of excellent quality plus you can have freshly cooked egg to order. The hotel restaurant serves food all day till 9pm, I had a busy stay and only ate there one night but the meal was wonderful. The tomato with brown shrimp starter was superb. There is a fridge on the landing with chilled drinks available which you then pay for at reasonable prices (2 euros for a coke). I'd stay here again anytime!

Room Tip: I was in room 3 which overlooks the Grote Markt and the fair, it was very comfortable.

Stayed a night on the way down to the South of France, and loved it. Right on the square, with lots of lovely bars serving wonderful Belgian beer :-). That good that we've just booked it for the return journey!

Room Tip: Rooms overlooking the square are noisier, but give a wonderful atmosphere of a classic Belgian "...

Enjoyed 2 nights. Bed was comfy, bathtub was a treat, water pressure good, food was delicious and family was friendly. Called hotel on arrival to town after taking a wrong turn on walk from train station. Owner picked us up with his car! Loved being on the square and enjoyed several cafes. Talbot House a must for WWI knowledge. The stairs in the room were a bit awkward. The room decor is only reason not a 5. We enjoyed our stay.

This is a small hotel, maybe 10 rooms, and the room walked the line between charming and haphazard - there was a sort of imperfect retro decor to it that didn't really feel intentional. But, as I say, the bed and shower were good and the location could hardly have been better.

We got in early on a train and the owners figured out how to let us check in early. It being Monday, apparently you cannot rent a bike, which was news to us, but again the owner came to the rescue, called the guy who rents bikes and got us some, essentially saving our vacation (we were in Belgium just to go out to Westvleteren).

Five stars to anyone who saves your vacation.

The room was fairly inexpensive and upstairs from the Amfora restaurant, which is very good.

What a lovely hotel, our room was quite large. The hotel is right on the market square which we were worried about the noise but the windows were double glazed and kept everything nice and quiet.
The breakfast was worth 14 euros, delicious.
We had to park our car in a car park around the corner from the hotel as it was market day,but it was free

We spent the days after Christmas in Hotel Amfora in Poperinge. It felt like coming to visit a warm and welcoming family. We weren't treated as 'customers'. The arrangement including breakfast and 4 course dinner was amazing. In a cosy, homely atmosphere we enjoyed the delicious meals and had a marvellous night (bed was superhigh quality) in a luxurious room (nr.2!) on the first floor. The room had an old, authentic wooden floor and bathroom... exeptional.
The family running the hotel is a gem: no effort to big, always a huge smile and a friendly welcome. Amfora is most certainly a must-go if you want to visit Ypres and In Flanders Fields, the commonwealth cemeterys (don't forget to visit Tyne Cot - is impressive). You are in the friendly Poperinge close to everything you want to visit and yet very quiet and cosy.
We are looking forward to visit again.
