We chose this hotel as it's a great location to park your car in public car park 3 min walk away (you can see entrance from hotel) in centre of Bruge (but you may miss the turning for the underground car park which is to the right, we went around a few times trying to find it and had to do a 3 min circle again) We were also pleasantly surprised to find it was within 5 minute walking distance to the main square and actually if you like walking most of Bruge is walkable easily. Anyway the hotel was very smart and presentable, great service from the front desk and friendly human service at breakfast which was basic but it did fine. I really never expect huge things from small independant hotels breakfasts like this and for this style of hotel it was a good breakfast, rolls, ham, pastries, cereals etc in a small room of about 6 tables.
We had a lovely quiet room overlooking Bruge rooftops on the back of the hotel and it was clean and well decorated to a modern smart standard. The bathroom was lovely clean and tiled with a wonderful shower. The stairs up to the room are slightly thin, narrow and steep by most stairs standards so get a ground or 1st room if you have difficulty with these.
I would definitely get a room in this hotel again when we intend to visit Bruges and would recommend it to any friends or family going.
