“Great Building & Location”
Reviewed 8 February 2014

We found this hotel by chance when we arrived in Bruges by camper van and decided we'd like to stay in the centre for a night. Looking at the building, the foyer and breakfast dining room we almost didn't go any further because it looked too expensive for our needs. However, having spoken to the extremely pleasant staff, and later the owner, we decided to look at at the only room available. It was very nice and really not expensive. The staff were very helpful about us parking our camper van in their carpark and made us feel at home. We had a really comfortable night and the next morning were surprised by an excellent breakfast. I would stay here again.

I have stayed in this hotel 3 times. Might be a total of 5 months. Its a old building belonging to the 13th century, and they still tried to maintain similar ambiance. On entering you will find an old Piano, an old library and very old publications, mostly in French and Dutch. The employees here are some of the most friendliest and accommodating ones. The breakfast serving hall with wooden floor pulls the past memories out of the box. The front office, does guide you about the activities you can do.

Room Tip: Don't take a room in the ground floor, and prefer canal side or front side room.

This place was neat, clean, historical and with some of the friendliest and most accommodating people that I have ever met. We arrived late in the evening and the first person we met was Guy (pronounced Gee), who was manning the front desk. He directed us to our room, referred us to a
wonderful restaurant within walking distance. Later, he gave us the history on the building, as well as shared his own life experiences. We had only planned on staying that evening, but wanted to stay another night. Unbeknownst to us, it was "Taste of Europe" weekend and they only had a one person room. We gladly took it. The hotel provided breakfast every morning. On the wee hours of our departure, Guy even took me and my travelling companion to the airport and had coffee and juice waiting for us when we awoke that morning.
The location is perfect for walking to the belfry and city square. This little hotel also has a bar in the evening hours. It's a wonderful place to meet interesting people. The night before our departure, we went in and met the Belgium bunch (you know who u are!) the couple from "the country in England", and the Amsterdam brothers! We will be back. Thank you for a wonderful stay. Remember to stop and smell the roses. It's a fantastic hotel. The history is great. Thanks Guy!

Room Tip: We weren't in the room long enough to make a difference. There is a lot to see in Bruges.

I am sure in its heyday this hotel was beautiful, but is now very tired. Location excellent a short walk to the main square. The staff were extremely helpful at all times. I would love to see it refurbished as it would be stunning.

Room Tip: Room 19 very spacious.

This is a lovely town house tucked away around 5 minutes' walk from the marketplace, so quiet, with charming staff. However, it is in need of TLC and looks 'tired'. Refurbished, it would be a knockout but would then probably be more expensive.

We had stayed [happily] at the Azalea before so when we planned to visit Bruges for New Year we booked well in advance [October]. After a few exchanges of e-mails to arrange parking, the dog and to get help booking a restaurant we were therefore dismayed to arrive and be told that our booking had not been made.
We were found accommodation at another hotel and the Azalea paid the difference in room rates but our visit was very much not as planned hence the rating for the hotel.

I found this hotel on Booking.com. It is an old brewery converted into a hotel of 25 rooms - 3 superior rooms and the rest are standard rooms. We had a superior room overlooking the street while the other two looked over the canal and garden. The room was surprisingly very spacious- much larger than I expected. The room was styled in keeping with the period of the brewery and each room was individual. It was very clean and for this time of the year lovely and warm. The bathroom was clean with no evidence of mould or peeling paint/wallpaper which is quite often the case with hotels. The staff were extremely polite and very helpful with directions/enquiries - contrary to other reviews. There is a well stocked bar and prices are very reasonable however you must pay for them when you pay your bill on checking out. The location of the Azalea is perfect for a short walk to the centre of Bruges and its many cafes and restaurants - 5 mins.Overall a very charming establishment and as I am very particular about hotel accommodation I have no hesitation in recommending the Azalea Hotel.

Room Tip: If you can afford it book a superior room!
