I arrived early to the hotel and my room wasn't ready, Christoph told me it would be ready in an hour so he made a suggestion for lunch, when I returned the room was ready and he even had my luggage in the room. Bed was comfortable. Breakfast was good and plentiful. On the the day I left, Christoph even found me an earlier train to Amsterdam than the train station attendant had given me. Overall very pleased with my stay and would book there again.

Room Tip: Had a lot of stairs to climb, so traveling with big luggage could be difficult. But nothing impossib...

Myself and m husband stayed here last year and it was lovely. The room was small but very clean and tidy and ideal as we were out all day and evening, so it was a great place to rest our heads after a busy day sightseeing.

Breakfast was simple but plentiful and typically what you would expect, with lovely breads, cheeses and cooked meats.

The hotel was probably a 15 minute walk into Bruge, but with so many things to see and coffee shops to stop at the walk was lovely.

A very walkable distance form the train station as well.

Would use the hotel again.

We spent three nights there. Very helpful staff, lovely, friendly lady who runs the breakfast room. Helpful with parking, restaurants, where to go, etc. I have stayed at another excellent hotel in Bruges before. It will be a tough decision the next time. The location here, while not perfect, is very convenient to the old city center.

We stayed for three nights as a base for visiting Bruges and the First World War battlefields (about 35 miles away) The hotel is just at the edge of the old city and near to the train and bus stations. As we were traveling by car we chose this hotel because it was adjacent to a large underground car park entered from the underpass on the main road and which the daily maxinum charge is 8.5 Euros for 24 hours. Take the right hand lane when going through the underpass and slow down till you reach the entrance. The rooms were fine and clean and the manager and waitress who served us spoke fluent English. Across the road is the local bus halt, the new concertgebouw hall and Information Centre and a nunber of restaurants, and then you enter the old city. It's about a 5 minute walk to the Cathedral and another 5 minute walk to the market square with the Belfry. Request a ground floor room if you have trouble getting up the stairs.

My partner and I stayed here for three nights and would definitely stay here again- the service was great, the room very clean and a good size, very modern bathroom with good shower, and a very comfortable bed. Excellent location right next to the main bus terminal (and information centre, where you can buy Brugge city card, etc) - a 10 min walk (max) into the heart of the city and less than that to the train station. Great breakfast, fresh food and good selection, and wonderful service from the lovely lady that looks after you (brings you coffee, bread, etc). A small, personal, cosy hotel; perfect for your stage in Bruges, and great value.

Room Tip: We had a room overlooking the street and bus terminal, but it was not noisy or disruptive at night a...

We stayed for three nights at this lovely, friendly hotel. We had a clean and comfortable room on the second floor. The hotel's location is very good. It's a 10-minute walk from the rail station and close to the city centre too. Christophe and the staff are friendly and helpful.
