“Just what we were looking for”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 May 2012

We stayed at Ter Reien for 3 nights and enjoyed it very much. We had booked a room with a canal view and it didn't disappoint. Excellent location, both for the canal view and the proximity to the Burg and the market square, just a 5 minute walk from all the action. We were given a map of Bruge as we checked in which I thought was very helpful and a nice touch. The room was compact and the bathroom was too but most importantly it was clean, worked fine and we only stayed in the room to sleep at nigth so didn't need tons of space. The continental breakfast was lovely, everything I could have wanted was there with enough choice to have something a bit different every day. I would definitely recommend this hotel and would stay again (same room please!).

Room Tip: You can book a canal view room for a little extra, I think it was well worth it! We often had the w...

Hotel Ter Reien is in a great location in a fabulous city. We stayed there specifically because we thought it would be fun to stay in a room right on a canal and we didn't have to pay an arm and a leg to do so. The room was very compact and the bathroom was a tiny booth, as previous reviewers have commented. We knew that coming in, so no complaints there. We also loved being on the canal, whcih was beautiful.
Everything was in easy walking distance and we ate dinner a restaurant closer to town recommended reception that was excellent.
Breakfast was fine and the service was cordial, but not overally friendly. Officious service seems to be the norm in Belgium from our experience.

The only real negative was the bed. It was not at all comfortable, which is unusual for Europe. It wouldn't be hard to rectify with a quick visit to Ikea, or the like, to get something decent.

Hotel Ter Reien is a wonderful choice for Bruges. The price was average - not budget, not five star. The rooms were clean. Some of the bathrooms are very small - we had 2 rooms and one had a big bathroom and one had a small one. Luck of the draw, I guess. But it is manageable for a short stay. Breakfast was great - croissants, bread, rolls, cheese, cold meats, cereals, pancakes. Highly recommended.

Room Tip: You can get canal view rooms, which may cost slightly more but probably worth it. May be worth reque...

This hotel is in such a great location, 5 minute walk into the main part of town, it's on a canal. The breakfast was really nice and plentiful. The room itself was compact, sheets had hair on them, the bathroom was big, however, dirty, and so many cracked tiles on the floor, when you walked on the tiles you felt like you were going to fall through them. The service was ok, however, when we checked in we could not go to our room as it was not check in time, however, we were given our key and told to come back in half an hour. So one assumes room was ready to go, most hotels if rooms are ready will let you check in a bit early. Also if you wanted a kettle you had to pay extra, wifi was also an extra cost. In saying all this, location outways the negatives and would stay again.

We had booked for three nights, but were ready to leave after the first.We were given a room in the basement (reached by metal stairs); the lower floor had the most dreadful smell of sewage? and the stink seeped into our room. The receptionist told us that there had been a flood and apologised, but couldn't move us because they were full, and the manager stood in our doorway that night, claiming that he couldn't smell anything at all and that there hadn't been any problem with the area. It was truly unbelievable. The next morning they found a room for us; not surprising, given the fact that we had said our whole party would be leaving that morning. The room that we were moved to was fine, but there was no attempt at an apology from the manager, other than a coffee and tea tray, free of charge. The behaviour of the manager, coupled with the general surliness of some of the staff, made this place memorable for the wrong reasons. Awful. NB Ratings are based on the second room.

I was upgraded from a partial canal view room to a full canal view room upon check-in, which was a wonderful surprise. But the room wasn't ready by 2:30pm. The view from the room was one-of-a-kind and amazing. But the room is dated and needs to be cleaned more thoroughly. The hotel is a 10-minute walk to Market Square. The breakfast was the best...pancakes, Belgian hot chocolate, and the croissants! The croissants were just delicious.
The toilet had a flushing problem my first night there, but when I reported it the next morning, the owner took immediate action and the toilet worked just fine after that.
The 3-star Michelin restaurant Karmelite is just a few doors down from the hotel. I highly recommend this restaurant. The food totally deserves its Michelin stars.
