We stayed here for 2 nights with our two young daughters (8 and 11) between Christmas 2013 and New Year. The hotel is brilliantly located very near to Markt, just a two minute walk - but in a lovely quiet area. We felt safe returning to the hotel after dark, the street was well lit and it is so close to everything.
It is very easy to find (instructions from the hotel were very clear) and parking on site is very handy, albeit a bit tight! The hotel staff were very helpful and friendly and we all enjoyed the use of the pool and sauna - especially the kids!
I'd previously read trip advisor reviews that it's better value to eat breakfast in local tea-rooms or cafe's, which we did on the first morning. However, with two children (who get to eat free at the hotel) it works out much cheaper for a family of four to eat breakfast at the hotel. We chose to eat here on day 2 and the bonus was that the breakfast was AMAZING! Everything you could wish to eat. . . in every flavour . . and more!
We ordered drinks using room service (... more as a novelty for the kids really) which was fine, but beware of the 'extra' plate of cheese and nibbles that accompanies your order without you asking for it - we initially thought 'Oh how lovely!' but discovered the cost of 3.50euros on the bill when we checked out! ha ha.
The family room was plenty big enough, the curtains were blackout ones and the beds were comfy. The decor was clean and tidy but nothing special - just beige and brown (the boring usual hotel look), however, we were here to look at the sights of Bruges . . . not sit and contemplate the furnishings!
We would happily recommend this hotel to anyone and would be pleased to make a return visit ourselves.
