I stayed at Old Tom on my own many years ago, and was delighted to find it just as friendly. The only real downside is that the stairs are narrow and steep, but if you don't mind making two trips with your cases you will find many compensations. It is family run, and the staff we found excellent and attentive. Our room was on the top floor, small but perfectly equipped (and what looks like a brand new bathroom), and being at the back provided a quiet and peaceful sleep - it being a Friday night, a market covering the entire square was set up between midnight and 0800, and we heard not a thing!). The menu is superb, and in years of travelling we have never found better moules frites! There is also a secure locked garage a minute's walk away, which costs extra but is well worth it. About a minute from the Menin Gate - you will not find a better base for the Last Post ceremony. With an interest in military history, we have visited Ypres often over the last ten years or so, and have stayed in a couple of higher-rated hotels whilst using Old Tom as our restaurant for both lunch and dinner. No longer; we shall simply stay here on all future visits, and save travelling time for our meals! First class value, very friendly atmosphere, and good service.
