As already mentioned, we are not a hotel booking agency and so look very carefully for hotels on the battlefields of the Great War which meet our very high standards, whether such establishments are 2, 3 or 4 star. We also prefer to work with privately owned hotels as we have found that some of the larger chain hotels can be a little impersonal and lack that essential ‘caring touch’ we look for before we recommend a hotel to our clients. If we get this wrong then our reputation is at risk!
The Ambrosia is a small, privately owned and run hotel right in the centre of Ypres, quietly located just a 100 metre walk from the main square and superb In Flanders Fields Museum. The Menin Gate Memorial to the Missing is just a short 3 minute walk from the main Square. The owners Vincent and Iwona have created a simple yet fresh contemporary feel in the way they have so tastefully and lovingly furnished their hotel, as you can see from the photos below (just click the pictures). Rooms are located on three floors and there is no lift (though we can request a room on the first floor if this helps). The hotel does not have a dedicated car park but on-street parking in this quiter part of town us usually not a problem.
