We are going to be spoiled on all other hotels after this. Considering what a good bargain this was as part of our tour package, we were delighted and surprised to find such a luxurious hotel. It is located just steps from the "Burg" square and about a block and a half from the "Markt" square. (That walk to the Markt is like running a gauntlet, though: be prepared to be tempted by Belgian waffles, Belgian lace, and Belgian chocolates.)
Our room was very large for a major European city and had all the amenities. I would say that the hotel catered to an older clientele and most of the people we saw were 50 or above. But that made for a very quiet room even though when we were there, the nearby Markt square was hopping with one musical group after another in celebration of Belgian Independence Day (July 21). It was busy outside, but serene within.
Also, the included breakfast buffet was excellent and featured things that are likely to appeal to several nationalities: baked beans and tomatoes for the Brits, scrambled eggs and bacon for the Americans, pastries of all kinds for the French, and chocolate shavings for Dutch visitors to put on their toast.
I would definitely stay here again if I'm ever in Brugges.
