“Good value for money very good breakfast friendly proprietors”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 November 2009

If you are looking for a bed for the night and an ample breakfast with friendly staff and free parking this is ideal. Close to the railway station and only a short walk to the city centre. It is not luxurious but the bed was comfortable. Did not try the shower which was located along the corridor but the toilet was clean as was the bedroom.

This charming little hotel in the Bruges backwaters delivers on all levels and is the best value you could find in Bruges. It is very near to the station and a short walk to the centre. The proprietors are very courteous and helpful. The breakfast is ample for the price paid and the room was comfortable. Although the bathroom is shared, we did not have any problems. A thoroughly enjoyable time and we will definitely be going back for another stay.

It is clean, cheap and the owners are nice. Food is delicious, really near from the train station, easy to leave your bags and is also near Minnewater.

I found Hotel Keizershof in the Internet while browsing for budget lodgings. It earned good reviews among former clients so I immediately called up the hotel to book a room. The polite owner, Stefaan, answered in two rings (and in perfect English). He told me that he only has one available room left, with two separate single beds so if it ok for me because I'll be coming with my boyfriend. I dont see any problem with that so I book it for a night for EUR44,0. That comes with free breakfast.

I also sent an e-mail to confirm my booking and he answered after 15 minutes with the map and directions going to the hotel.



Hotel Keizershof has only 7 rooms that cost from EUR25,0 (for single or double rooms) EUR44,0 (double and twin) EUR66,0 (triple) and EUR80,0 (quad). Each room has a sink and closet which contains bed necessities like extra pillows and blankets. The walls are decorated with drawings of Stefaan and Hilde's two daughters.

The shower and WC are outside the rooms, at the far end of the narrow hallway, which was at least three steps away from our room. The bathroom is very small, a little area under the stairs which was installed with a door, a shower box and a sink to quality as a bathroom. There are two chairs inside where on one, you can find fresh towels in the morning while on the other, you can put your clothes.

Taking a shower can be very tricky because the handle of cold/hot water can move easily, with even an accidental nudge. There is no soap or toiletries on the sink so you have to bring everything, soap, facial cleansers, toothbrush and toothpaste. Meanwhile, the toilet is just beside the shower room, clean with a lot of pale pink tissues on one corner. It's also very small but the most important thing is that, it doesnt stink.




The hotel is run, hands on by Stefaan and Hilde, with some help on decorating from their little daughters. Every after check-out, Hilde would go up to the rooms to clean it, change bedding and arrange the tables and a couple of chairs left in mess by guests. Stefaan receives the guests and takes care of breakfast in the small cafe (exclusive to the hotel, I guess) downstairs. The couple is very polite but not really friendly. They would attend to your basic needs especially during breakfast, they will even accommodate your baggage when you want to leave them there after check out if you still want to explore the city. But they don't appear to me someone which you can start and enjoy a conversation with. Probably they are just too busy. What was very nice was, the family really work together and is very very close. In the morning, you can see them having their breakfast at the back of the hotel (near the parking lot), after all the guests have eaten at 10AM.

Hotel Keizershof is stripped of any luxury that you can find in starred hotel. It looks to me like an old house which was converted into a lodging house so it would be of use and make some money for maintenance. You can even smell the generations gone by in the hotel. The stairs are not of a typical Dutch which is so narrow but made of old wood. There are book/clothe trunks in each landing (there are two floors), old books and photographs on the wall (some are even creepy) and it can be quite dim during the night.


We were lucky to be booked in the third floor with a very small balcony attached to the main house by a couple of iron bars. I dont think the balcony can hold the weight of two people so MK and I take turns in smoking on the balcony (it's prohibited inside the room). It looks down to the parking lot (free parking for customers) and to the cafe nearby, which was very beautiful during the night with the lights, the people drinking and generally the atmosphere of good times.

I wouldn't mind staying again at Hotel Keizershof the next time I am in Brugge (if Im ever coming back. I had a policy on city travels, I never do a second-time visit). But I'd definitely recommend them to no frills travelers who might find themselves in Brugge one day. The hotel is 5 minutes away from the train station and 10 minutes from the main center so it's really very easy to go back and forth when you are staying there.

There's not much info that you can find in the website which I haven't mentioned here (except the pictures of all rooms) but visit it anyway at http://www.hotelkeizershof.be/.

You can book you stay by calling [--] or email at [--]. It is located at Oostmeers 126, Brugge, Belgium.

This hotel is well located, not far from the center (around 10-15 min walk), and has also a free parking. (and not far from the station for the ones using trains).

Inside the hotel is comfaortable and clean. Do not expect high comfort or modern and trendy decoration; but you will have a quite big double room for only 44€. The bathroom and toilets are shared, but it is clean. It is maybe a bit noisy (walls are thin), but travellers respect in general silence late in the evening, according to the spirit of the hotel.
The breakfast is simple, but well served (coffee/tea + lot of bread).

Globally, if you do not want or cannot afford to spend too much money in your accomodation at Bruges, it is a very good option.

If you are planning a visit to Brugges (Marvelous city) do not hesitate to be hosted in this hotel, especially If you do not want to pay a lot of money only for sleeping, or simply you prefer to spend your money in other things. All the hotel, reception, café, rooms, shared areas (bathroom) are very clean. It is located closed to the rail station, so you can leave you luggage and continue free of weight visiting the city. Brugges is quite small, so the distance to center from the hotel is more or less 10 minutes by feet.
