“Best weekend in Bruges”
Reviewed 3 February 2013

Hotel was close to the train station, and very easy to stop on the map, inside is amazingly decorated, very warm and homely. The bedroom size was more than I expected was really shocked (good shocked) rooms had everything you could need, As for the reception staff you couldn't ask for a better bunch of people looking after you, especially Jeroen are Bar man, trip adviser, tour guild and friend, made us feel very relaxed and at ease. Price was amazing for the quality of service food and help. Location ten fifteen minutes tops from the center of everything, from food, to bars, museums, galleries and many more things to discover in the nooks and craneys. Me and the gang will definitely be back sooner rather than later.

Room Tip: Seriously guys and girls all the rooms are fantastic so any room you get you will not be disappointe...

Very comfortable hotel near Minnewater and the Beguinage, a picturesque area only 10 mins walk from the station, and 15 mins from the main square. Our room on the ground floor was a good size, very clean with a lovely bathroom and powerful shower. Helpful staff and a good breakfast with plenty of variety, including some hot food. We went just before Christmas and the whole city was very festive. Would also recommend the Restaurant De Wijngaert which is only 50 metres away - fantastic steaks.

This hotel is right in the centre of Brugge amongst the gorgeous narrow streets. I stayed for 2 nights and was very pleased with the clean and spacious room. The breakfast was a buffet style with plenty of choice and the staff were remarkable especially Jerome who kindly helped us to plan a train journey to Ieper.
We had to leave our room by 11am on our departure day and needed to set off to walk to the station in time for the 5pm transfer to the ferry. Our bags were kept in a locked room until we were ready to collect them.

Very good location very near the centre of Brugge and only 10 minutes walk from the station. The room was clean and comfortable the staff helpful, breakfast was continental offering a good variety. Brugge is a lovley old city with plenty of retaurants and lots to see. We recommend a visit to the brewery and the chocolate museum. A trip to Ghent is also recomended another lovely old medieval ctiy only 40 minutes away by train at a cost of 5 euros. We would definitley return to this hotel.

We stayed for 3 nights over New Years and this hotel was everything we needed. It was close to both the city centre and railway stations (both about 10 mins stroll) along picturesque routes - it look longer as I kept stopping for photos!

We had bed & breakfast, which was served later on 01/01 - great idea! - and comprised your usual Continental fare of cereals, meats, cheeses, juices, pastries and a bit of hot food. The hotel bar was also very accommodating with a nice choice of local beers. There is also a nice, cosy bar (http://www.brugschbieratelier.com/) a couple of doors down.

Our room was on the first floor and next to two other rooms - which is where my only complaint comes from - the other doors were very close to ours so when anyone came in/out of the their room it sounded like they were coming into our room which is a bit disturbing when you're waking up in the morning or trying to get to sleep.

Apart from that the room was very spacious, with an awesome shower and good facilities.

I'd recommend anyone considering Bruges to check out this hotel.

Great place, clean and modern. Staff were great, very on the ball, alert and helpful and responsive. They helped us get a nice restaurant around the corner on our first night. Our room was spacious and clean and modern, I particularly like the lighting controls, on/off or dim to taste when swith was kept pressed. Shower was OK, a little weak and off angle, that was my only slight gripe, but it worked fine. Bed was very comfortable and room was quite, but I used earplugs anyway. Didn't try the breakfast or bar facilities but they seemed well subscribes, heard lots of English accents there. Location is great, restuarants and chocolateries and bars, canals parks monasteries etc aplenty within a stones throw, (plus an excellent comics store, om par with anything in Paris). About 10 mins lovely walk to the main square, but you'd be happy staying in the neighbourhood too. A very nice place to stay in one of the nicest cities in the world. I deduct a star purely because it isn't 5-star, but it's absolutely fine. Christmas time is a great time to visit, but then again we were lucky with the weather - cool/mild, dry and clear.
