“2 star at best”
Reviewed 22 May 2007

Well located but the hotel is more a budget 2 star than anything else. Rooms are generally unclean, matress from the 1970's no shower just a bath with shower extension so had to kneel down to have a shower in the morning.

Not the best

Stayed at the Hotel Ensor in Brugge last weekend. The hotel is conveniently located in a quiet neighborhood facing one of the canals. The price was very, very reasonable (we paid 50EU one night, 85EU the next), the hosts helpful and the breakfast good. There was also wireless internet access available.

We booked on short notice, so I can hardly complain as we were frankly just glad to have found a place to stay. However, the hotel's decor was a little rundown and the ambiance was more shabby than charming. Okay for a budget hotel, but I found myself not wanting to go back to the hotel any more often than necessary and basically trying to spend as little time there as possible. Our room had an unwelcoming, cold linoleum floor that wasn't in great condition, the towels were quite threadbare and our room had barely enough lighting to allow us to sort through our suitcases at night. Not a horrible stay, but not particularly comfortable, either.

Bottom line: if you are a budget traveler, you'll do fine with the Ensor. But if you're going for a romantic weekend away, I would definitely, definitely recommend splurging on something a little more expensive.

was lucky enought to stay there for my parents 30th anniversary, all our rooms where different,d on't expect great luxury but it was a nice room and had some great nights sleep. Breakfast was really nice, staff friendly and helpful.

Location was good also, really close to the centre but on a quiet street. If I would visit Brugge again I'd like to stay here again!

We stayed at this hotel in October 2006. Great , quiet location and excellent price. We loved our room, which in fact was a suite: a small single room and a bigger one with two beds. The shower and the toilet were separate (but inside the room).

The staff were very helpful, they offered to have breakfast ready a bit earlier so that we did not have to eat in a rush. Also, breakfast was excellent and served in a very nice room in the main building.

We would definitely go back .

We stayed at the Hotel Ensor for one night in March, and were very pleased with the accomodations for the price of the room. The room was clean, the beds were better than most in hotels, and the breakfast was outstanding. It is very close to all the major sights and shopping, and yet off the beaten path, so it is a little quieter. The hosts were extremely helpful - giving us maps and full explanations of the sights. We would recommend this hotel for duo travelers and small families when visiting Brugge.

This is a small family-run place in the centre of Brugge, just off the main square. It's a good basic place for a one-or-two night stopover. Oddly-shaped rooms and quirky decor yes, but our room was clean and warm and the owners were helpful and provided good breakfasts! They also have a small garage for parking if required (you must book this). We paid about £45/night - for two people, that's a deal.

Excellent value Hotel - polite freindy staff, nice breakfast and a good location: just off T'Zand square it is a 5 minute walk to the bus/rail station and the Centre of town. Lots of nice bars and Cafes on T'zand.
50Euros for a room was a real bargain.
