“One of the best hotels in our experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 September 2013

The Hotel Adornes, in Bruges, is a wonderful place to stay. Bruges is one of the most beautiful cities in Europe and our stay was even better for having spent three nights at Adornes. Rooms are clean, modern, comfortable. Beds were very comfortable. Rik, the day clerk was eager to help with any arrangements or directions needed (for example, we bought a bottle of wine to bring back to our room and requested a corkscrew. Rik brought a tray with two glasses, appetizers, napkins and, of course, the opener). As with most European hotels, the rooms were a bit small, but when you're in Bruges, you'd best not be staying in your room too much, other than to sleep (or have a drink of wine!). The morning breakfast was excellent. Laundry facilities are available. There is a very comfortable lounge in the cellar, with books, TV/DVD player. Bike rentals are available and biking in Bruges is great, unlike Amsterdam, where bicyclists are insane. We are contriving to return to Bruges and wish we could move there.

Room Tip: Just make a reservation. The rest will be great!

We spent 3 nights at this hotel in Brugge, and had a wonderful experience. The rooms are simple, but have all amenities needed. The staff is extremely helpful with any questions guests might have related to sites around town, museums, restaurants, shops, etc. The breakfast buffet was excellent with fruit, yogurt, hard boiled eggs, cheeses, bread basket of various types of fresh breads. The breakfast room is in a lovely space with a huge fireplace, and tables for two or four. All of the guests mingle and compare notes on where to go, what to see, etc. The front desk staff is very helpful with suggestions and information. We first met Rik at the desk when we checked in, and he was more than accommodating. His restaurant recommendations were terrific and right on. There are bikes available which we took advantage of with a day trip to Damme on the bike path. Highely recommend this hotel and would stay again if in Brugge. Brugge is a small Gothic city with alot of great architechure, charm, and many sites to see around the town such as world class museums, beautiful churches, chocolate shops, etc. Would return to Brugge in a heartbeat, and would again stay at Adornes.

Room Tip: Our room overlooked the canal with swans and it was great to throw open the window and watch the com...

The hotel was a quick cab ride from the train station, we were greeted in a lovely manner by Rik who swooped away our luggage and the "dust from the road" and immediately got us situated and made reservations for a place to eat dinner (which proved to be a good idea). The front area has a couch and large windows where you can sit and regroup, there is a cellar romp room area where you can relax and watch a movie about Brugge. The rooms were exceptionally clean, cheery (our had a great views of the canal below). Breakfast included cheeses,meats, freshly made applesauce and yogurt, delicious breads, eggs, and more. (Excellent since this is a charming ancient town without fast food joints.) Staff spoke several languages and were very warm and unpretentious. Beds were great, we woke up feeling refreshed and ready to go explore the nearby museums and shops. I was able to buy Belgium beer and take it to my room for a nightcap on my birthday without having to leave the hotel. There was a grocery store a few blocks away if needed. Quiet and charming location. Walking distance to art museums, architecture, shops, De halve beer tour, historium museumAmie was another staff member who helped us tremendously, specifically with our transportation needs. Price was excellent for all we enjoyed. What an excellent way to enjoy my birthday in Brugge!

Room Tip: Ask about a room with a view if that is important to you.

The hotel is very well located facing the canal and 10 minutes walk from the city centre. The staff are welcoming and very friendly. The breakfast provided has variety and is quite adequate. Free bikes are provided which is a huge plus. The only caveat is that wifi connectivity was poor in our room and we had to go to the reception area.

Room Tip: Avoid rooms with windows facing the road as cars make a lot of noise passing over the cobblestones.

What a find! Great hotel, fantastic staff, nice breakfast, good location. Staff recommended a great restaurant - Cambrinus. Car park small but secure - got my Jeep Cherokee in with room to spare. Hope we can come back.

As everybody says the Adornes is a good choice but I suggest you bear the following in mind.
Don't take a large car - our Ford focus was a tight fit into the spaces in the underground car park. Actually try and avoid taking a car to Bruges - the cobbles make your teeth rattle along with everything else in the car.
Don't save a few quid by having one of the cheapest rooms unless you are fit, they are a bit small with one side of the double bed right up against the wall.
Otherwise it is well located and the breakfast was excellent - we might go back on the train and stay in a better room.

We arrived into Bruges without a hotel reservation, but had read solid reviews about Hotel Adornes so we decided to take the bus there and hope they had availability. The moment we walked in and met Rik, our trip continued to get better and better.... Our favorite things: (1) Biking around Bruges and to the neighboring villages... I couldn't help but giggle and smile as we took in the scenery while pedaling around town. You will regret not taking the bikes out - take advantage of this perk!!! (2) Everything about Hotel Adornes was perfect for us - we don't want or need luxury, but this is far from "basic." The hotel is charming, extremely clean, quaint, etc.... it was actually nice not being right in the city center and made for an excuse to get the bikes out! Don't waste your time looking up other hotels.... you will love this place!

Room Tip: Having a canal view is really just the icing on the cake
