“Warm welcome, convenient location, lovely people.”
Reviewed 24 November 2013

Despite being only 10 minutes walk from the station, as we arrived in the dark we caught a taxi to take us they. In the light of the next day we could see how easy it could have been.
The staff were helpful and friendly, recommending a few nice places to eat and answering our questions.
Our room wasn't overly big but was clean and smart and met our needs. My only criticism was the size of the loo...not ideal. Don't let this put you off. You could pay a lot more and get more space but you would then miss out on the personal and friendly atmosphere.
If you're planning on a weekend in Bruges, boot the Albert and you can't go far wrong. 10 minute walk from the station and from the main square. You also have the advantage of being close to the start of the main shopping route and plenty of places to eat and drink.

near the bus and trainstation. No noises in the room. Comfortable bed and excellent breakfast. Nice people at the receptiondesk. One remark tough: not sufficient "pistoletjes" at the breakfast - had to ask for them

Room Tip: rooms are quiet, and a little old fashioned

Thank you for rating us... Love to hear you had a wonderful time.
I know belgian people like the 'pistoletjes' in the morning...Maybe the lady was too busy doing other things than filling the bread at the time ..
I just want to reply on your TIP. the room facing the front you had (as you mentioned old fashion) will be completely renovated in January 2014, just to keep everything updated...
Looking forward to welcome you in our new rooms then
Kind regards

Once I had found the hotel - I had mistakenly put 214 on the GPS instead of 2-4 which took my over a mile away - I was pleasantly surprised. It is at the budget end of the market was was really very comfortable. The room and en suite washroom was immaculate. Outside is a one-way street so if you overshoot the hotel, it's a long and complicated route to find yourself back at the right place. My motorbike was parked outside the entrance and close to the wall. Opposite was a bus station and a large cobbled square, and the beginning of the main street leading into the city centre. I've been to Bruges many many times so there were few surprises. Although it was Sunday, the town was very crowded but I soon found my favourite bar, Berties Bar, with it's 400+ beers. A wonderful atmosphere, it opened at 4pm and was packed thirty minutes later. I think if you arrive by car, the underground car park opposite as an expensive answer. I would definitely stay here again.

This is the second time we have stayed at this hotel and as with the last time everything was excellent, the perfect location for the T Zand car park, the shopping, fantastic Saturday market and restaurants. The welcome at the hotel, the room and breakfast were all first class. We were also supplied with some specific local information that we requested. If you are planning a break in Brugge at any time of the year you wont be able to better this hotel for its value for money and location. Many thanks to Albert 1 Hotel and its staff.

Room Tip: Very steep stairs could be an issue to infirm or older visitors but ground floor rooms are available

A small, classic style European hotel that has great room options for traveling families. Rooms like the family room and triple room offer good value and space if you are with kids. The hotel staff were exceptionally friendly and helpful. When we checked in, the man who helped us provided at our request a couple restaurant recommendations both of which were outstanding (Belle Epoch and Passage). On our first morning, the hostess had already thought to hold a table of six for us open at breakfast. We had not told anyone when we would be down for the meal, so this was really thoughtful. The location is on the perimeter of the town, so not a central as others. However, this is only a matter of walking a few extra minutes. Just a solid choice that we would definitely recommend.

Room Tip: Room 25 is a triple, which has a queen and a twin tucked into a nook. Perfect for family with one c...
