Our Hotel – In The Heart Of The City
When you choose to stay in the Hotel Albert 2 in Oostende you will be staying in a historical building that has seen many changes. And over the last three years has undergone substantial renovation.
It was first built in 1850 and called the ‘Hotel de Flandres’ in of course the ‘Vlaanderenstraat’.
It was one of the most important hotels in Oostende and had a central gate leading to a courtyard and stables.
In 1891 a new building was erected incorporating a shopping gallery and cafes, where the stables had previously been situated. It was then renamed Hotel Leopold II.

In 1928 the gallery was extended to the Christinastraat, where an apartment building was built in Art Deco style.
In the course of 1946-1953 the shops were renovated according to the trends of that period, and in 1954 the name was changed to the ‘James Ensor Gallery’ and the hotel was then known as the Hotel George V.
