This hotel, and the buildings adjacent to it, are the one of the most famous landmarks in Bruges. Why you would stay anywhere else (save for budget), are beyond me. The hotel is stunning from the outside, and the decor inside is in keeping with the exterior. We stayed in room 21, canal view, c£250 per night over an August weekend for our first wedding anniversary. The rooms aren't huge, but then look at the exterior, do you expect them to be?! Our room did have air conditioning. The bed was very very comfortable, flat screen TV for those moments you're not out sight seeing, electronic mini safe, hair dryer, and plenty of wardrobe space. One criticism of the room would be, no mini fridge or tea facilities, which would have been handy, although the staff were happy to get us a drink whenever we were in the hotel and needed refreshment. The bathroom was very good, albeit decked out in 'European Marble', walk in shower, big sink are and mirror, hair dryer. The staff, on all occasions, were exceptional, whether at check in, during the day, the late night porter, always happy to help, book a table at a restaurant, or offer some advice. We drove over from Bristol, and so needed parking. I read somewhere parking at the hotel was limited and €25 a day, so we found the nearest 'Interparking' car park, two streets away, its called Pandreitje Interparking, and you can park there for €8.70 a day (card payment accepted), we parked there for 3 days (its only €20 for a lost ticket if you're feeling cheeky). You don't need to book, its the equivalent of an underground NCP in the UK. Now the noise... We were there on a Reiefeesten canal festival weekend (Fri-Mon), and so Bruges was busy. During the day, the canal tours boats did pass the hotel (10-6), ad in the evening (6-12pm) there were performances relating to the history of Bruges in the canal outside. But... We weren't in the hotel from 10am until 6pm, and then from 7pm until Midnight, as we were out enjoying Bruges, so those complaining of noise, were obviously 'doing it wrong'! In addition, no restaurant in the hotel, but then Bruges has some fantastic restaurants, so even if they did have a restaurant, only the unadventurous would eat there. Likewise, plenty of great Cafe's to grab a breakfast, so don't feel compelled to book breakfast in the hotel. Gingerbread Cafe, is particularly good, family run, and super friendly. Book this hotel, get out and explore Bruges, and when you buy a postcard, fridge magnet or painting, you can say to your friends 'see the building with the twin roofs, thats the magical place we stayed'. Enjoy.
