This hotel is a better option between a hostel and a hotel. The difference is that you have a room for yourself, but the rest of the commodities you'll have to share with the other guests.
If you book one room online (for 1,2 or 3 ppl) will cost you 24 euro/night/room!!!! If you go at the reception and take a room, then the price will be 39 euro for the same room.
Another mention here, if you're looking for a cheap place to sleep, then this is perfect, but only if you're traveling by car.

... a crater exists because the German area was blown up from below in tunnels. The blast was so loud that they heard it in London - over 30000 kg of dynamite. We saw and walked through trenches and saw allied and enemy bunkers too. We visited the cemetery and war-site where John McCrae was a physician zinc witnessed his best ftiend's death. This spurred him to write 'In Flanders Fields' the famous ...
... The AWAC crew men behind me breathed deeper too, and we stood, honouring the dead of a century ago, a dead who live on in Ieper. The two Canadian brothers, killed days apart from each other and a third brother killed at Vimy - a family of 5 reduced to 2 parents in the space of 8 days. The 15 year old boy just a month shy of 16 who lied when he signed up in England to see the world. The hundreds of thousands of conscripts who fought against their will for ...
... fighters who were being transported by the Nazis. The facts are hazy but they were both shot at this spot and found the next day by locals. They may have tried to escape while waiting for a train or were simply executed whilst stopped. Further into the wood was a 2nd mine crater, Caterpillar Crater, one of 19 mines detonated on the one day. It was filled with water and was so peaceful under the trees which made it even more moving.
We continued on to Canadalaan, to ...
