Hotel Montanus
Ranked #60 of 97 Hotels in Bruges
Reviewed 2 January 2011

Brugge is a great city to visit, but when travelling in another country its nice to have a base that you can retreat to when your feet get tired. The Montanus is centrally located so you are never far from the relaxing atmosphere of this truly great hotel. Comfortable and welcoming, the Montanus is everything you need. However, above all, the staff are magnificent and I would single out Arnold as being a major contributor to the success of our visit. Friendly, efficient, comfortable and stylish, the Montanus is just everything you want when travelling. Great breakfast, lovely rooms and good bar.

If you are in Brugge, stay at the Montanus you will NEVER be disappointed.

Thank you to the owners and staff for everything.

This was a great hotel for which i can find very little fault at all. Having booked through airmiles we got a great deal on the room as well so i can't comment on the price.

Location - Brilliant. Between 5 and 10 mins walk from the station and also from the very centre of Bruges, set in a very quiet backstreet meaning there was no noise at all

Welcome - Brilliant. We were greeted with a very friendly welcome and a goody bag including maps of Bruges and a token for a welcome drink of our choice at the lovely hotel bar. Not only that you are greated in your room with a bag of Belgin candy and an accompanying guide! When i mentioned on our second day i could do with an iron we had one in 2 minutes, everytime we walked past reception we were greeted with a smile, and there was a feeling that they were happy to have our custom, something that is often sadly lacking nowadays!

Rooms - Very spacious, far larger than i expected. Only minor criticism was they were slightly dark and possibly for a very elderly person the shower/bath may have been hard to get into.

Breakfast - Good breakfast with standard continental fare of cold meats and cheeses, boiled and scrambled eggs, bacon, croissants and fruit. A couple extras they had, which were very welcome were pain au chocolat, and a chocolate dipping machine where you could dip marshmallows and waffles into the chocolate!

Overall a very good hotel, i feel very few would be disappointed with this

Our SatNav packed up and we went round in circles looking for the Montanus.Not the Hotel's fault - Bruge has a frustrating one way system. After an hour and twenty we finally found it!
It was worth it - what a lovely lady on reception. She was everything a receptionist should be, really welcoming, helpful and genuinely friendly. Better than all the other hotels I've stayed in in fact!
The hotel was clean and tidy. Room was good as was the bathroom.Breakfast was help yourself and there was a good selection of hot and cold food. Waitress was friendly and helpful as well.
Only a few mins walk into Bruges. Receptionist recommended a restaurant to us, Mojo, which was about 5 mins walk and was excellent. Tried the Flemmish stew and it was great.
Worth hiring a bike - we cycled to Damme. The cycle track runs alongside a tree lined canal

The service at the Montanus is second to none. The rooms are modern and comfortable and the hotel is maintained to a very high standard. It's location is just a ten minute walk from the centre of Bruges and there are also some excellent restaurants close by.

We spent a wonderful weekend there thanks to a very helpful manager who went out of his way to make our stay in Bruges an enjoyable experience.

Highly recommended for quality and location.

We were upgraded from the start and the service was great. The whole experience was 5 star. The hotel was close to the town centre and everything was within walking distance. The breakfast was top notch with a good selection of cooked food and continental fruits and croisants , Oh and the pan ou chocolat Mmmmmm.

We recently stayed at the Hotel Montanus on a city break in Bruges. We booked everything through Air Miles, so got a discount on the hotel (£220 for 3 nights). This made the hotel very good value.

The hotel was very well located in the centre of Bruges, but still very quiet. It is only 5 minutes walk from the main sites. If the weather is good, there is a really nice suntrap in the back garden, where you can relax after a hard days sightseeing (with complimentary tea and coffee available all day).

We had one of the cheaper rooms in the main building, but the room was clean and nicely decorated, and came with a free bag of Belgian sweets and chocolates (never a bad thing!)

Good continental breakfast, but also included some hot food and a chocolate fountain, complete with waffles and marshmallows!

We would recommend this hotel as a good base for seeing Bruges.
