... dating from between 1175 and 1200 and built in the Romanesque style, while the rue des Jésuites includes a Gothic house from the 13th century.
My advise to you is the same as always: get the map check the places you want and then just get lost and discover places hidden from visitors.

... just set it was very poignant & even a little eerie in the still dark air.
My only regret with Flanders is that the poppy season was over which would have added another dimension to the geography. Basically my journey is over & I start heading back to Christchurch in two days’ time but will be spending three nights in Dubai. So goodbye holiday, hello ...
... after the summer break so the roads could have been chaos but they were empty and Paris is an eerie town at that time of the morning.... Making our train with plenty of time to spare meant we had time for yet another croissant and coffee breakfast... not as good as the hotel but still yum. We we on the move as soon as our platform was revealed and so began the 13.7km walk to our designated carriage... Lucky we were not tardy because we'd been on board for ...

From there we went to a boutique chocolate shop - Calinor - for the compulsory chocolate purchase. May have one or two tonight.
We went to Vivaldi restaurant for a typical Belgium dinner - Vlaumse Runds Stover, frietjes and salade = beef stew, fries and salad = delicious. I had a St Bernardus Pater 6 beer. A dark beer but not as dark as NZ beer.
... it explores the social and military dimensions of the war in Ypres, seeking to provoke discussion of the twin themes of war and peace.
Over three hours passed by, as we were enthralled by the quality of the displays, some of them using very realistic holograms, which seemed to talk directly to you!

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!
