    Historical Traveler Reviews Albion Hotel Ypres

    Albion Hotel

    from

    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

    from

    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

    from

    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

    from

    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.

    Excellent hotel

    from

    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

    from

    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!

    Top Hotel!

    from

    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

    from

    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.

    from

    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

    from

    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!

    ... emotional toll it had. But this was truly a highlight for me. So proud to be Canadian today!

    The loss of so many young soldiers was hard to comprehend until you laid your eyes on all the cemeteries and all the graves throughout the Flanders region. Wow! It’s important for us to remember these brave men because they paid the ultimate sacrifice so we can live the way we do today! Lest We Forget.

    I just wish I had brought more flags ...

    ... grabbing their food (including lunch for tomorrow), students were involved in the Last Post Ceremony. This ceremony is undertaking every night in the town of Ypres at the Menin Gate to commemorate all those who lost their lives fighting in World War 1. It was a very touching ceremony with Talara and Connor laying a wreath on behalf of the school.

    After the brief ceremony we raced back to the hotel for dinner and hit the hay.

    Goodnight

    We'd been advised to arrive at Menin Gate well before the 8pm playing of the Last Post. After walking through the town, chose a pub close by to wait out of the wind before joining the hundreds who seemed to have appeared from nowhere. As part of the 100 year rememberances, british schools were allowed to send two representatives to lay a wreath at Menin Gate. Those laying wreaths were ...

The memorial was fairly plain but elegant and as is so often , it is visible from miles around 11,000 names of lost soldiers are inscribed on its walls. We visited the nearby German cemetery 44,000 buried there 4 to a grave, unless you were Jewish, grey crosses marked the graves making it a somber contrast to the white headstones of the ailed cemeteries . We then drove to Lens to ...
