The Hotel Flanders is a central address that buses 6 and 16 from the town’s train station run by. The main market square, the Grote Markt is a brisk ten minute walk away. While it’s a short journey, a dearth of pavements between the Station and the historic Centre make shanks’ mare most inadvisable for anyone carting luggage
The hotel has a handsome white façade and a fine reception area. Moving further inside, the bar has a funky yet elegant look and there is a late afternoon happy hour .
Upstairs corridors seem a little dingy and dated, with aging art prints. Although a wee bit lacking in character, rooms are wonderfully comfortable and spotlessly clean. Bathrooms are excellent .
The hotel has a pool-replete with robes for hire- but this is best described as ”bijou” and looks mobbed with more than one swimmer therein.
Safety deposit boxes are available, but down by reception. Although helpful staff were assiduous about security, an actual safe in the room would have been more to my liking.
One beef in my book would have to be the over-loud piped music that tweely pervades reception and breakfast area first thing in the morning. While said breakfast was excellent and served with a smile, cheesy, 100% unsolicited sound effects didn’t enhance this punter’s most important meal of the day. It’s a total when you are trying to talk business with reception staff or rifling through the contents of your safety deposit box when under the gun for time .
The hotel's location on Langestraat is peaceful on the edge of the historic Centre . It is bustling without being noisy or rowdy and at a remove from tourist crowds. Whilst somewhat lacking in raw excitement, the Flanders is a safe mid-budget bet for your stay in this magnificent west Flemish burg.
