“Really Enjoyable Stay”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 June 2011

My wife and I were returning to Bruges for our 15th Wedding Anniversary after honeymooning at the Bryghia in 1996.
I have to say that we were not disappointed at all. I had asked for a room at the back of the Hotel looking out over the picturesque canal and for champange to be in the room on arrival. Both were provided and the room was spacious and had a lovely view with windows opening out onto the canal.
We had decided to come by car this time rather than catching a couple of trains from Brussels and had pre booked one of the Hotel's secure underground garages (only 7.50 euros per night !) - they are only about 400 yards away from the Hotel and a map is provided at check in which is easy to follow.
The room was clean and comfortable with tea/coffee facilities and a TV with English channels. Self Serve buffet breakfasts are provided I which I would think would cater for even the heartiest of appetites .
We had forgotten a travel adapter on arrival and as the Hotel doesn't have aircon and it was quite a sultry day had asked if a fan was available for our room - both were provided immediately by the very friendly staff.
The Hotel is a pleasant 5 - 8 mins stroll from the Market Square / Belltower with bars/restaurants / cafes along the way which makes it very convenient while being in a quiet location so that there is very little noise of a night.
For the price I couldn't fault the Bryghia and was really glad we had chosen to stay there again. We will certainly return again and won't leave it 15 years this time !

Room Tip: Room 29 at the back overlooking the beautifulcanal

We had a wonderful weekend in Bruges over the bank holiday weekend. This hotel is a lovely little hotel. The location is ideal away from the main square, next to a canal, very quiet yet less than 5 minutes walk to the centre.
We had a triple room in the attic and couldnt fault it.
Lovely continental breakfast, regularly stocked up.
Would definitely return and would recommend to others.
Found eating out in Bruges very expensive, we have stayed in a lot of European cities and have always manged to eat decent on a budget but not so here.
Never the less a beautiful city well worth a visit.

We stayed for three nights last week and enjoyed our stay. The room was adequate size with a nice big bathroom (and a powerful shower, which was great). The service was efficient and polite - at breakfast the owners were quick and attentive to everyone. Good range of continental style breakfast. The location of the hotel was minutes from the Market Square. Overall we would recommend the hotel.

This hotel is in a pleasant location near a canal, just a short walk from bars, restauants and the centre of the town. Rooms are reasonably priced and the lockable garages are cheaper than most (7.50 euros per day) and near enough to the hotel. Breakfast is fine - boiled eggs, meats, cheeses, bread, croissants, fruit, yoghurts, cereals, with smooth service. People generally are out all day - drinks are available in the lounge until 11pm, but nobody seemed to use this facility and the place is very quiet.

Room Tip: Some rooms overlook a canal

There were three of us (couple plus son) on a short break to Bruges with Eurostar and we were allocated the triple room on the fourth floor.
Firstly as others have stated I would not recommend this room if you are elderly, infirm or overweight (!) as the lift only goes as far as the third floor and access to the room is via a short, narrow & steep flight of stairs.
For everyone else though it is a delightful and very spacious airy room with a small table & chairs in addition to the normal items. Decor is a little "chintzy" but it is spotlessly clean and well maintained. There is a mini-bar / fridge containing reasonably priced drinks should you require it and a safe for valuables. The bathroom is huge!
The room is very quiet and we had excellent nights sleep during our stay. If I wanted to be critical the TV is too small but again this is really a reflection on the sheer size of the room!

The Hotel is charmingly fitted out and is small and homely (we do not like large faceless modern chain hotels). There is a small lounge and very attractive dining room.
Breakfast is the typical continental variety but of good quality and quantity and constantly replenished.

The location is perfect, far enough away to be quiet yet only five to ten minutes away from the main areas and attractions.

People have been critical of the slightly reserved nature of the owner. We found him helpful and pleasant. You do have to remember however that once over the English Channel most people are far less outgoing and more reserved than us English and you cannot expect the same characteristics as you get at home...!!

Overall we found the Bryghia to be the perfect place to stay for a break in Bruges. Great value too..

Some tips for staying in Bruges :-
Eat at midday! In the evening a curious thing happens in restaurants - the choice halves and the price doubles!!!

If you want to climb the tower do so first thing in the morning when it opens -the stairs are steep & narrow and there's not much room at the top and thus best shared with as few people as possible!

For coffee, snacks and a good value pasta lunch (5 Euros) the HEMA store on Steenstraat has an upstairs restaurant that the locals (and a very few shrewd tourists) use...

Recommended!!

The hotel is located only a few minutes walk from the central square of Bruges and was a perfect location to explore this wonderful city. Yes the owners can appear a bit reserved when you first arrive but this we found to be the norm while exploring Bruges, and once they get to know you they open up and are very helpful. Hotel is located right on the side of one of the canals and at night is very quiet. Always lots of hot water for shower or baths and they have a nice small lounge and lovely dining room. Breakfast was assorted cold meats, cheeses, tinned & fresh fruits, yoghurts, cereals, and assorted bread & rolls, and boiled eggs. We had room 28 which had a side view on to the canal and was a good size. Friends who were also staying had room 35 and had 2 windows overlooking the canal but the room was slightly smaller. Rooms have flat screen tv with 4 UK channels (BBC1&2 ITV 1 & 2) and tea/coffee facilities as well as fridge & safe (at no extra cost). Streets around the hotel were always very quiet at night even over the weekend and we found the whole of Bruges a very quiet and safe city. To sum up the Bryghia is a wonderful hotel for you trip to Bruges, clean, well located with owners who to start with may appear a bit reserved but open up once the get to know you and are very helpful.

Less than 5 minutes walk to the centre of Bruges, several great restaurants and bars. The owners were a lttle reserved possibly even a tad curt but ok and amenable to our request to store bags on our last day after we checked out. The rooms are a bit on the small side but clean and ok as long as you haven't taken loads and loads of clothes as the hanging space was a bit tight but. Breakfast was fine usual stuff of fruit, bread, cheese, ham etc. All in all a perfectly good small hotel made excellent by its ideal location and value for money price.
