“Great position”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 September 2012

Just returned from a 3 night stay at this Hotel.My son and I had two of the rooms at the front.Mine was slightly larger but his had a tiny balcony.The rooms were small,or in his case,very small doubles but they were very clean and the beds were very comfortable.The bathroom was very small but clean.there wasn't much noise from passing traffic.We had breakfast on our first morning but didn't bother again as it was cereal,cheese,ham,conserves and bread.Croissants or choc au pains would have been nice.
The Sfinx is in an excellent postion,just behind the main shopping area,a few minutes from the beach and loads of restaurants.Try the Green Dog for food.
Parking was a bit of a problem,to put it mildly! My son had parked the car a fair walk from the hotel,in a disabled bay-I have a blue badge.He checked with a traffic warden that it was ok to leave the car overnight and was told yes.The next morning we went for a stroll before breakfast and saw a market was being set out,so headed for it.My son was staring to look worried and suddenly said"my car has gone!" He was sure he had parked it there and when we asked a stall holder,they said we had to go to the police as it had been towed away! We found the police station but it didn't open until 9am so we had to wait around and when they opened,they said the car had been removed because of the market.
This was really upsetting as I never thought anyone would tow away a car with a blue badge.We had no idea about the market.We had to go on the tram,then a long walk to get the car and it cost 120 euros.I was frightened to leave the car anywhere after that.

We stopped here one night in February. We didnt expect much as it was really cheap but were really impressed for the money. We had a family room on the top floor of the hotel. Two bedrooms, and i thought the bed was very comfy! It is small but comfy and clean. The shower cubicle is small, not a problem for us. The hotel is ideally loacted. It is just off the beach, which is beautiful, and next to the Coast Tram station. The coast tram takes you right along the coast up to Holland. Breakfast was fine, considering how cheap it was. Hotel staff were lovely. I would stay here again for a few nights.

Although the hotel was clean and central to De Panne the rooms are TINY and the bathroom about the size of a changing cubicle! Stupidly expensive, dearer than 4* hotels in Brugge! Breakfast was pathetic, no parking available and no other services on offer.
