“Good location near the station and a short walk into town”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 June 2014

We had a very compact basic room with no furniture to speak of but with all the facilities we needed - good WiFi, cable TV and a decent shower. The hotel was in an excellent location - only metres away from the train station and a 15 minutes walk to the centre of town.

The hotel is conveniently located right at the train station and only a short walk to the old town. The rooms are very compact but clean and functional. Its can be a little confusing to locate at first however if you take the escalator as you exit the station you find it easily. Breakfast was basic but offered reasonable value for money.

Room Tip: A lower floor room allows access via the stairs at busy times.

Good location right next to train station. Short walk into town. Large spacious room. It was weird that the shower was right in the room but since I wasn't sharing with anyone it was fine. Every modern and clean hotel.

We stayed there (two rooms) one night on Easter Weekend 2014.

Location: It is on the edge of Brugge at the train station. Best advice is to drive to top of the parkade and from there look for the lift to the walkway to the hotel which is wedged between two apartment buildings. The town is perhaps a 10-15 minute walk though a pretty park.

Rooms: Clean and basic That means an ikea type room that is small but functional and very quiet with clean comfortable beds. The bathrooms are divided. There is a seperate room for the toilet and the sink and shower are in the room itself.

Hotel staff and building: Staff at the desk are multilingual and helpful and polite. There is a breakfast room that is a tad basic, but its an Ibis but perfectly acceptable. There is no bar and the only food in the hotel exect for breakfast is vending machines. However there is a bar nearby at the train station if you need such and a carrefour in the same location.

Parking: I cannot recall the exact charge but 3 Euros overnight is what I tend to recall.

Brugge is a small location and this is a perfectly safe, clean , convenient location to stay and sleep with many nice restaurants in the town.

Overall, if you want to save money and spend it on other things, this is a place worth checking .

Room Tip: rooms are either overlooking the railway or car park. We were on the railway side and thought it wou...

This hotel is literally right next to the train station. There are escalators and lifts to take you right to the hotel, which is very convenient for those with loads of luggage. The staff was friendly and very helpful. Everyone at the desk was multilingual. Check in and out was a breeze and handled very efficiently even though they were busy. The room was very small, but clean. The room set up is somewhat odd, with the sink and shower right next to the bed, but this is a budget hotel. The lobby has several vending machines with a good selection of snacks and drinks. Breakfast is available for 7.50 Euro. Offerings included: yogurt, fruit, bread cheese, meat and many different bread spreads (including a tasty fruit spread from Liege). There were a few cons: there were many mosquitos in our room, even with the window closed. The desk did come and spray our room, which helped a lot. The shower door had an open slot to open the door and water escapes when you are showering. Additionally, it is in the room, so there isn't a lot of privacy. These were minor things. Overall, you can't beat it for the price, location and service. I would definitely return.

There is nothing fancy about this hotel. Rooms are small, Amenities are spartan, but it is inexpensive and convenient. If you take train (you are crazy to drive) the time from the platform to hotel is about 1 minute. Go outside look for escalator to right, go up one level and then walk across pedestrian bridge to hotel. From hotel it as easy walk to all of Bruges.

Also take a bike trip. There is a rental place in garage below hotel. Belgium has amazing bike trails. We road up to coast (about 25km). The routes are well marked and amazingly beautiful.

This Ibis is directly next door to the main train station in Brugge, thus making it ideal for train travelers. We have stayed at many Ibis hotels before, so we were confident that this would be fine.

Well, perhaps we have never stayed at a "budget" Ibis, because we were quite surprised about the size of the room - and the ability for two people to move at the same time.

On the positive side, the room was very clean - and was kept clean for each of the four nights we stayed. Also, the location was perfect for us because we were traveling only by train.

On the negative side, the room was very small; there was almost NO place to hang clothes; there was no room to place toiletries, etc.; and the towels were paper thin (we had to ask for extra towels from the front desk). The mattress was very, very firm and thin. And, finally, the shower is IN THE ROOM, which was fine for us (husband and wife), but could be awkward for friends traveling who need additional privacy.

We did pay for the breakfast each morning. It was adequate, but for the price, we have had better selections in other hotels (including Ibis Hotels).

The Wi-Fi was just fine - strong signals. One evening, we wanted to work on a table to update some computer work, but were not allowed into the breakfast room - we had to sit in the very small lobby area - that was awkward.

The bottom line - convenient, reasonably priced, small, and lack of privacy.
