Just returned from a lovely 3 day stay in Bruges where we opted for the Montanus. We paid £130 for 3 nights through hotelconnect.com and noticed when we got to the hotel that the rooms go for around 150 Euros per night so we definitely got a great deal.
We arrived quite late at night and were pleasantly surprised by the hotel attendant who took the time to show us to our room and point out restaurants on a map who would accommodate us at such a late hour. The decor in the main hotel is fresh, clean, modern and really easy on the eye. The room was pretty small and felt a little cramp but, again, it was clean and fresh and the shower....WOW! I had to peel myself off the wall it was that powerful!
Location wise, you're talking a 5 minutes into the centre of Bruges.
All was going swimmingly until we returned to our hotel room after our first day in the city. The room was suitably refreshed by the cleaner with clean linen and towels. After getting ready and prior to leaving the room to go out for the evening, the girlfriend noticed her expensive perfume wasn't in front of the mirror where she had left it in the morning. We searched high and low but to no avail and even questioned our own sanity as we were finding it difficult to come to terms with the fact that her perfume had gone walkies when the room had been secure all day, presumably, having only been accessd by the cleaner. Had we been the victims of theft from our hotel room??? We had both seen it before we left the room in the morning. Reported it to the attendant who had welcomed us to the hotel when we had arrived on our first night but he couldn't have been less interested saying he would speak to whoever had been in the room. We said that we did not want anyone else in our room for the remainder of our stay and unfortunately, felt awkward walking around the hotel from then on. On the flip side, the attendants were very helpful organising our taxi back to the train station. In conclusion, a satisfying stay in one of Europe's most beautiful cities which was regrettably marred by having our personal belongings stolen from us by the hotel staff and bad customer service when it was needed most. Or else we would have given the hotel full marks.
