We arrived to the hotel on Monday morning after walking from the Bruges train station (about a 20-25 minute walk) with no problems finding the hotel once we got to the main streets. The woman who checked us in was very friendly and upgraded us to a suite in the new section of the hotel. After climbing a small staircase from the elevator we arrived at room 12.16. With exposed wood beams surrounding us we were quite excited to see our room. It was fabulously appointed, spacious and clean. A large king sized bed with a desk, tv unit with closets, a fridge and coffee maker. Upstairs in the loft area was a twin sized bed and small seating area. Our 7 year old daughter slept up here and loved having her own hideout amongst the beams, like a tree house.
The bathroom was large and clean (2 sinks, tub and shower) and I loved the L'Occitane bath products.
We had the breakfast included in our stay and we really appreciated having so many healthy options (eggs, granola, fresh fruit, yogurt, etc) before starting our day. We did use the wellness room/ workout facilties one evening and they were perfect.
The hotel location is just off of the main square but tucked away from the hustle and bustle of the tourists. It was convenient to stop at the hotel throughout the day to drop off shopping bags and switch out our shoes. Like most, we were totally enchanted with Bruges and wish we could've stayed longer. We didn't expect the great shopping there at all! The historical sites and people were lovely. We had great food (tried to stay away from places that looked touristy) and an overall amazing experience. We will be back and will stay at this hotel again!
