Golden Tulip De' Medici Hotel
Ranked #45 of 97 Hotels in Bruges
Reviewed 6 November 2012

Nice hotel with friendly, helpful staff. Good location, only 10 min (slow walk) to Mkt Sq. Room was very clean, tidy and spacious. Only issue was the smell from the drains in the bathroom (nothing a little draino wouldn't fix).
Hotel restaurants were both nice and easy after a day working.
Internet is really expensive. Wireless internet is free in the bar/lobby for 30 mins at a time, which was annoying - They need to look into free wifi for entire stay!!
Hotel parking is expensive at 15.00/night. Parking on the road outside the hotel was free for 4 hours at a time and also from 8pm - 9am (which I had no problem with space - you do need a blue parking sign that they sell at reception for 2.50)

Hotel was excellent value for money, rooms were spacious and clean with nice furnishings. Hotel staff were pleasant and helpful and the parking was reasonable and very convenient. We didn't use the facilities (restaurant/spa etc) but would on another visit.

Positive - even though it is a non smoking hotel, there are balconys (not sure if in every room) where you can smoke or just relax and look at the japanese garden inside of the hotel. The hotel is app 15 minutes walk from the center and just in front of it there is a bus stop to the center and to the station.

The staff is helpful and nice, giving a lot of information when asked (which were not 100% accurate but it didnt cause any major problem).
The breakfest was sufficient with a solid variety of warm and cold food.

Negative: For almost 100 euros I would expect it to be better - what really dissapointed me was that there is no free internet (you must pay an extra for it), also quite problematic for me was the blanket in the bed. There was only water in the minibar.

Room Tip: ask for a balcony (view to the garden), if you want to smoke

Hotel is in a nice quiet area but only a short walk to the centre of Bruges. Spacious rooms and very clean. Breakfast was continental and full English!! We thought it was very good value.

The Golden Tulip was a great base for our trip to Bruges! The bedroom was big and the room and bathroom were spotless! Breakfast offered a good choice and the staff at reception and bad were friendly and very helpful! The hotel is a 10 minute walk to the main square, but it is along the canal and there are lots of pretty buildings to look at so it didn't matter at all! Parking in the hotel is €15 a day, but we payed €2.50 for a disc to park on the street outside which worked out brilliantly for us! Only tiny complaint would be that after paying €10 for the fitness centre, the jacuzzi was cold and only the sauna was on...so may be worth checking before booking the facilities! Definitely a good hotel though and we would stay again!

I must say that the stay at the Mediche was surprisingly good. Especially after a very rough day and reaching the hotel well towards midnight, I was greeted by an extremely co-operative and smiling albiet sleepy person. He helped me with the check in, in just a matter of minutes and I was off to my room.

The room itself was pleasant. Value for money with an excellent bathroom without any pretense at extravagance which usually has me hunting for how to work the shower. It was simple, precise and everything worked fine.

The hotel is at a very close distance from the main square in Brugge. So that kind of helped me in the morning.

The breakfast was quite alright, had a full continental spread so no complaints there.

Its a clean and nice place and I would definitely recommend it and would also stay the next time I am in Brugge.

A point to be noted (for all the smokers) is that this hotel provides you with smoking rooms and I am hoping that they do not change this trend. The balcony with each room gives you an area to have a smoke without spoiling the room's atmosphere. Ah for some fresh air !!!

All in all I would rate the hotel pretty well.

Unfortunately I was not able to try their Japanese restaurant which I have heard is good, but probably will do so on my next visit.

Room Tip: Make sure you do an advance booking. I had sent the hotel an email and they had responded within 12...
