Buying shrimps at the harbour and eating them here with a large Rodenbach, it's a tradition in our family and absolutely delightful. Very nice that they don't mind you bringing in the seafood, they even provide napkins. I have been coming here with the family for many many years and will be returning every year again!

We only had something to drink here. The bar/pub is very cramped. Service is friendly and prices are good. Can't say anything about the hotel itself though. We actually didn't notice that it was a hotel at all until we checked TripAdvisor

We were having a walk around the promenade and marina area when we came across this smart looking hotel with a wonderful pub/bar. Even though it was a blustery afternoon we decided to sit outside and a very pleasant member of staff came over and took our order. We opted to have a beer here and decided on the very...

Lovely, clean rooms, excellent breakfast, friendly staff, smashing proprietor and simply breathtaking views. Mind you, I did go for the Oostende voor Anker festival and so awoke to four-masters sailing past the window! The owner was more than happy to store my luggage after check-out until I was ready to leave town.

A traditional Belgian seaside hotel - great to find such a place that has not been swallowed up by corporate anonimity! Very central for city centre, harbour, 'little' beach and shops etc. Although parking can be a bit of a nightmare/expensive - as with all of central Ostend! Basic but very clean rooms with high quality bathroom suite. Quaint elevated...

To book this hotel you need to phone, fax or do it in person, it does not have a website or email address and is not on any booking site, but it is worth the effort. If you can afford the extra, book a “seaside view” room, we found we had a table in the breakfast room with the same...

We have only spent one night at the Hotel Rubens in Oostende but we were very content with what we experienced there.The hotel is close to the harbour. Our room (without harbour view) was 65, rooms with a view to the harbour are more expensive. Our room was quite small but nicely furnished and clean.The breakfast room is absolutely beautiful....
