This charming hotel is in a very attractive building, very tastefully converted to a modern hotel with lots of character, in a very quiet and central part of Bruges. I suspect its one of those canal side buildings on many postcards, and on most tourist cameras.
Our room was a reasonable size, especially given the quirky shaped building, and like the rest of the hotel, very nicely converted / carved out of the original structure. It was clean and well maintained, and had a very good bed and a modern bathroom.
In general, the staff were professional and friendly, but compared to our own experience, some reviews look unjustifiably effusive on this front. Maybe the “honeymoon” effect ?
Overall, I thought the hotel was very good, but at circa EUR 400 for a canal side room, it expect it to be. Breakfast was plus EUR 20 each, but worth having so you can sit outside near the canal.
The hotels associated restaurant is a short walk away in an attractive square, with a nice canopied outside terrace. It has a simple short menu, and good quality food.
Despite Bruges having far too many tourists, because it is much quieter in the evening and has lots of restaurants, it would be an attractive and convenient place to base yourself for a tour of the region. However, in order to see much outside (eg De Haan) of the town itself (which is really about wandering around for 1-2 days), I think you really need to hire a car. Trains are not that frequent and taxis relatively expensive.
