If I am honest, I am not sure if this is charming and quaint or just old and tired. The building is fantastic, built on the canal front and is very charming. The lounge rooms are quaint with nice open fireplaces and sofas. The rooms have massive double beds. They are quite soft, so if you are fussy, this may... More

This hotel was beautiful and full 9f old world charm. The room was small but very cosy. Complete with a balcony with beautiful views. The room had tea and coffee facilities and was only a 5 minite stroll to the square. There was a nice cafe called tatties across from the hotel which was good for snacks and breakfast

Enjoyed our 2 night stay at Martin's Relais. Good location, only a short five minute walk to the Market. The hotel is not modern but is clean and well appointed. Staff were friendly and helpful. Would stay here again.

Central location for the old town, all amenities accessible, lovely building, excellent staff and room. Quite expensive but surprised at how expensive Bruges was. Cost extra for car parking and extra for breakfast, so making it an even more expensive stay. Average cost for breakfast and lunch for four of us £50. Dinner £150.
