I stayed at the Hotel Admiral on a half-board basis. I note that one reviewer mentions that there are no tea/coffee making facilities in the rooms, and the comment that the owner wants people to spend money in the bar instead. This tallies with my experience.
Although you can't expect too much from a 2* hotel, I think it is reasonable to expect free access to drinking water in any European hotel.
At dinner, soon after we arrived after a long journey, I asked for some tap water with my... (read more)

I have been going to the Admiral hotel in Langastrasse for the past 8 or 9 years and have very often gone two or three times in one year, always for a short break I am now 80 years of age and will be going back there in June 2008, the Admiral has become like a second home to me and the ambience there is fantastic so cheerful and happy. Staff are very good, rooms are basic but always very clean. Staff very helpful with information if you need it. (read more)

I couldn't believe we stayed at the same hotel as the last review ... the Hotel Admiral is a 2 star hotel and VERY cheap, and you get, like everything in life, what you pay for. If you are polite to the staff, you get the same in return and with our party the staff were unfailingly friendly, helpful and polite. By the way, you switch the tv on from the switch marked "on/off" and choose channels by pressing "up/down channel" button - why you need to ask the staff!!!
Rooms are small but VERY... (read more)

Overall it was a very cheap offer but you get a cheap service. I would not recommend Hotel Admiral to other people. I would sooner pay a little more and get a more comfortable hotel. The hotel is set in an excellent situation, you are close to all shops amd facilities. (read more)

The breakfast is the only criticism we could find. It is a hotel for the young to middle aged, and provides a basic friendly service. Take a travel kettle, as there are no tea facilities, although there are plenty of good shops nearby that are open until late. (read more)

The hotel is in a very good place in Ostend as it is in the middle of everything. The room was clean and very basic (as you'd expect from a 2 star hotel). Nights are extremely noisy up until about 4am!!!
Food was awful!!! As a vegetarian I was given a very bland and less than basic salad two nights, a plain omelette another night and the final night the main part of the meal was...unbelievably half a grilled tomato with some awful peppery bits sprinkled on top.
I have used packaged holidays... (read more)

We have stayed at this hotel a couple of times before as we love Ostend.
Firstly the Hotel Admiral. Don't expect this hotel to be the Ritz, because it isn't, remember this is a 2* hotel and should be judged on this.
The owner, Peter, is a great host and runs this hotel, (on his own, by the way), very well and efficiently. His staff are all very friendly too, and are good at sharing banter with the guests as you get to know them.
The hotel is compact, clean and the well presented with an... (read more)
