Historical Traveler Reviews Albion Hotel Ypres
I stayed at the Albion with my nephew on June 16, 2005. This is an excellent hotel with a first rate staff, located close to the town square and Yeper sites. We enjoyed our stay and will definitely stay there again on our return.
Loved the Albion
My family and I stayed at the Albion and we can't say enough good things about the friendliness and hospitality of Christiane and Peter. Their helpfulness in getting us started on our visit to the Ypres area and the warmth of their reception was wonderful. We look forward to the opportunity of a return visit and will certainly stay at the Albion. We strongly recommend it to anyone visiting Ypres.
Favourite hotel in town
On several business trips I have stayed at the Albion Hotel. Still my favourite place in town! Very friendly and quiet, with an excellent breakfast.
The Albion - Look Nowhere Else
This was the second time that I stayed at the Albion and I can not say enough about it. Christiane and Peter go out of their way to make your stay in Ypres most enjoyable and will go to great lengths to help you in any way they can. The hotel is just a stones throw away from the square and the Menin Gate. The rooms are most comfortable! The breakfast/lounge area is most inviting. They serve a wonderful breakfast and in the evening it is nice to have a nightcap in the comfort of the hotel. Priced just right, you can not go wrong with the Ablion.
Stylish and welcoming. Everything about the Albion is calm and efficient. We have been six times now and will use it many more times.
One slight drawback is if you get one of the top floor rooms in a heatwave as there is no air conditioning.
Albion Hotel saved the day
Our documentary crew stayed at Hotel Albion while filming a documentary on WW1. Their staff went above and beyond the normal call of duty to help things run more smoothly on our production. After filming in the cold and windy fields outside of town, it was a great to have a wonderful place to spend the night. We stayed an entire week and did not encounter one problem. I will definitely stay there again!

I have stayed at the Albion Hotel twice, and I cannot compliment it enough.
The owner, Christiane, is very friendly and helpful. During the first stay, we required a doctor which unfortunately led to a hospital stay. Christiane and her husband were marvellous the whole time, from contacting the doctor to running us to the hospital. Extending the subsequent booking of the accommodation was no problem to them, and they were very supportive the whole time (I would also add in passing how impressed I was with the Belgian Hospital system).
The Hotel is of a high standard, the breakfast buffet is first rate, the rooms are impeccably clean and tidy and the hotel is centrally situated in the town of Ypres.
I will certainly be staying there again.
A bit of luxury at an affordable price
A luxury hotel in a mid - budget price range - great value for money. Beautiful rooms and facilities, wonderful host and staff, great breakfast. Right near the Square and Cloth Hall, excellent location for Battlefield visits
FAULTLESS. YOU WON'T FIND BETTER.
My partner and I stayed at this hotel last year for 4 nights. The hotel is without fault - rooms were spotless, roomy and comfortable, breakfast was good quality with a good selection and the staff, especially Christiane the proprietor were polite and courteous. I could not fault it in any way.
A warm welcome
A party of 11 of us from the uk stayed 3 nights in the Albion whilst doing a battlefield tour. The rooms were spotless and the staff very helpful. The hotel only does breakfast, but there are plenty of good restaraunts(sorry about the spelling) within walking distance. Highly recommended!

... to see. There was also a photographic exhibit there on peace as well. The town is very cute and has a huge gothic hall that is very impressive to look at.
After Ypres we went out to Messines. We were driving around trying to find the NZ memorial here when we ran into a battlefield tour group at the Irish memorial who nicely pointed us in the right direction! This was great to see and there is also an additional memorial in the town ...
We kickstarted a huge day this morning with some beautiful chocolate croissants, hot chocolate and cornflakes (with lots of added sugar). It was then on the bus and off to the Flanders Field Museum. Although quite an old looking building on the outside, it turned out to be the most interactive museum I've ever been to. With a helping hand from the microchipped bands, touch screens, videos and endless pictures, I seriously enjoyed learning about World War One. We were then ...
... that cover the battlefield. Our guide tells us even today, farmers find shrapnel in their gardens and barns have caved in where
trenches once provided cover for soldiers.
We come to Hill 60; this place has not been touched since the war. I imagine this is what the moon looks like. Deep craters cover the ground around me and I have to watch where I step to avoid turning an ankle. A thin layer of grass covers the hill and the ...
... 956 Commonwealth war dead with a lump in my throat so big I could hardly breathe. It was awful. Curved wall alcoves contain the Memorial to the Missing, names of 34,957 soldiers who have no known grave and who all died after 15 August 1917. Those who died before this date, 55,000, are on the Menin Gate Memorial. On the way in you pass through the visitors' centre, listening to a monotone female voice read out the names, countries and ages of the ...
... perhaps the most poignant was the site of the Christmas truce. This little site was marked by a small plaque by the side of the road which was surrounded by soccer balls, coffee mugs and poppies of remembrance placed by the public. There was also a plaque displaying a diagram contained in a letter written by one of the British soldiers that described the site and the activity during the truce. The Christmas truce was an unofficial ceasefire on Christmas Eve ...
