“Ticked all the boxes for us”
Reviewed 26 April 2014

We stayed here for 3 nights early April and the hotel was very welcoming and comfortable. Breakfast was mostly continental, as you would expect, but with the addition of scrambled eggs and bacon. It was only a short walk to the centre of Bruges and it's many bars and restaurants, so a good location. We came by car and you do have to pay for parking at the hotel, this is very limited so you will need to book it when you book your room. Very pleasant stay.

Room Tip: Remember to book parking when you book.

Hi Yvonne,

I'm in love with the title of your review! That's exactly what we're trying to do on a daily base - ticking all the boxes and we are utterly happy that we were able to do so during your stay.

If your travel plans bring you back to Bruges we would be delighted to host you again.

The staff were helpful and friendly, we arrived too early to check into our room and were able to leave our luggage until the time of check in. The room was very spacious and lovely. The breakfast was adequate and again the staff were friendly.

The room we stayed in did not have any breath taking views, but we didn't mind this. It was very clean and we couldn't believe the size of the room, the wooden beams were a particularly nice feature to the room. The little piece of paper with the days weather was also a nice touch.

Upon check out, we were able to leave our luggage again until it was time for us to head for the station. There was free wifi available upon request. We didn't use the swimming pool but looked to be a nice size.

The reception area was welcoming and nicely decorated.
When I return to Bruges I will be booking into Floris Karos Hotel again. Only a short walk from the main area of Bruges and also not far from the station for our return coach.

We spent 4 nights at this lovely hotel and confirm it is a lovely friendly well run hotel, in an ideal location just 5 minutes walk to town. The welcome was friendly, the room ideal with large window and door onto small exterior walkway (22). Very comfortable bed, good tv though no UK channels. The indoor pool was brilliant and we used it each morning prior to breakfast. Plenty of clean towels, good powerful showers, and all to ourselves each day. The breakfast room was well stocked with fruit, breads and pastries, cereals, juices and hot drinks, along with cooked breakfast or cold meats and cheeses. Well staffed but could benefit from air conditioning.
Reception gave us discount vouchers for several attractions, which we used on our busy days there. Also recommended restaurants for the evenings, all within easy walk. We enjoyed a drink in the bar area each evening and found the prices very reasonable
We hope to return one day.

Stayed in this hotel for a few days whilst on a trip away to Bruges and it was lovely. Staff were very friendly and welcoming, hotel location was only a ten minute walk from the town centre and facilities were good for a couple of nights stay. The hotel was quite busy during peak times and could of done with more than one member of staff between the front desk and bar. Other than that thou a lovely hotel in a good location.

Room Tip: Request a room at the back of the hotel off the ground floor. There is a main road at the front of t...

Lovely hotel and the staff are amazing. Cute breakfast room (if a little busy during peak times) and nice rooms that are perfect for a short stay in a wonderful city. The hotel is outside of the main centre, but with only a 10 min walk to the market square we found it perfect. It's also worth exploring the little alleyways over the road from the hotel as they will take you into the centre in a different way and provide the chance to see parts of Bruges that you could otherwise miss.

The first night their was only one member of staff running check ins and the bar and it did get a little busy for him at times, but he was friendly throughout and served everyone as quickly as possible with a smile on his face.

I would recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: We had a basic room, but were at the back of the hotel and there didn't seem to be any noise fro...

We just spent 2 nights at this hotel and we were very impressed. We booked a family room and were told on arrival that we had been upgraded to the suite! The suite was lovely, very large and comfortable with comfy beds for the kids as well. Breakfast was very good and there was a kids play room, which our kids loved. We also used the swimming pool. Considering this was the cheapest family room we could find in Bruges, it is amazing value for money. Good location too - just a short walk to old town and shopping.
