“Expensive but nice”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 May 2010

This hotel was really good but it gets only an average rating due to its large scale and expensiveness. No free internet and expensive parking. (We parked in the street with no problem at all.) The location is truly awesome.

Great location, pleasant staff, modern rooms, a little on the small side, but perfectly adequate. Comfortable bed and a bath/shower arrangement.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 May 2010

The location was incredibly central, the bus drops you off 1 1/2 blocks away, market stop. A nice side street behind the belfry. The interiors were very stylish and polished. The room was an adequate size, and clean overall.
€ 115.00 per night, including a decent breakfast, I was very happy. It was a chain hotel, gearing to business travelers, so not a romantic bed/breakfast if that is what you are looking for. For the price, I would stay again.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 April 2010

My mother and I stayed here last week as part of a tour group and we were extremely happy with the hotel and the service we received.

The location is perfect - just behind the Belfry and within walking distance of the main attractions in the old city and of a multitude of bars and restaurants. The room was small but clean and comfortable with a safe, a mini-bar and a flat screen TV.

Breakfast was served as a buffet with a good selection of hot and cold foods. I would strongly recommend "Happy Hour" at the bar which is between 8pm and 9pm where beer and wine are 1/2 price - a great opportunity to sample some of the wonderful Belgian beers!

The staff all spoke impeccable English (as did all the waiting staff and shop assistants that we encountered) and were more than happy to provide assistance when needed.

In short, if you would like a city break in Bruges, I would definitely recommend Martin's hotel as its central location makes it an ideal base for exploring the town.

As many reviews have said, the rooms are on the small side, but bearing in mind its a place to sleep and to get ready to explore they are more than adequate. The staff were pleasant and helpfull and the breakfast was really good with plenty of choice and well cooked. The hotel bar is a little expensive but then all hotel bars are and to be honest its nice to be able to unwind and relax with a nightcap before retiring which a lot of the cheaper hotels don't appear to provide. If any negative comment can be made, it is the noise in the street if you are staying in a room at the front of the hotel as we did, so ask for a room to the rear, I know I shall when I next return, and I shall return to stay in Martins again.

Wonderful place to stay in the heart of Brugge! The rooms are small but you won't spend much time in them anyways. Friendly and helpful staff and an unbeatable location make this a great place to stay. The breakfast is very good too. Highly recommend!
