“There is a saying it does what it says on the Tin.”
Reviewed 10 July 2013

There is a saying it does what it says on the Tin. Well that’s exactly what you get if you book this hotel; while it may lack a swimming pool and a late night bar it is far from basic and was every thing we needed “A good fair priced hotel

So what did we seek and need from our “A good fair priced hotel” for this 4 day trip to Bruges: The hotel is certainly centrally located the décor traditional and clean throughout not just the front reception but into the bedroom, breakfast room and other facilities. The bedroom and bathroom fully meet our needs and each night we sleep well, which is not always the case when we travel. There is however, no tea/coffee making facilities or English TV channels available in room if such is a must for you. The continental breakfast was fresh every day as was the bread and offered a good selection of everything from a buffet table that was constantly topped up, as was the coffee and a selection of good.

I can not close by saying a big thanks to the helpful and friendly staff whose English put me to shame as I could not speak any Flemish. In fact they set the tone before we arrived with a simple swift email reply giving accurate option on how to get from the train station to the hotel. Such was the friendly attentive level of service which continued right through our stay with suggestion on where to go where to eat and lots more.

In short helpful staff, excellent service and a fine hotel at a fair price; which I am pleased to recommend.

Great location only a very short walk from the Market Square and 20 yards from the Chocolate factory, Room was comfortable and breakfast fine. Staff were excellent and extremely helpful. Perfect spot to explore Bruges by foot or bicycle. It's not 5 star but doesn't claim to be.

My husband and I visited hotel Biskajer July 2013, for a quick 2 night bday trip. Pros for hotel Biskajer include the size of the room and bathroom, it was much bigger then we are used to traveling in Europe. The location is great, just outside the main center square and breakfast was nice and the mattress was comfy. Cons for the hotel are it was extremely noisy in the mornings, if you want to sleep in past 0800 this is not the place to stay. Also the walls are very thin but the biggest con for us was the parking. There is no parking close to the hotel and the closest parking garage was full, we ended up having to park a good 15 minutes walk away from the hotel. So I highly recommend dropping off your bags and checking in prior to finding parking. Also, we stayed there Sat-Mon and when I asked if anything was open on Sun I was told that nothing is really open, however almost everything was open on Sunday. It was a great surprise but I was a bit thrown off and wouldn't have tried to get so much in on Saturday if I was told from the start that I'd be able to visit all the great tourist/chocolate shops on Sunday. Overall knowing what we know now we would stay again because the room was very nice and the price was great compared to the other hotels nearby.

Loved this hotel. Tiny lift (elevator) so I didn't have to haul my bags up the stairs. Good breakfast, helpful and friendly staff, spotlessly clean bathroom. Not even 5 minutes from the main square (Markt Square, with the Belfry) and the town square (Burg Square), the hotel itself is on a quiet street around the corner from a much smaller square with three cafes that looks out on a lovely canal. Really a gem and a great value.

We visites Bruges in late June 2013 and were looking for a reasonably priced hotel close enough to the city centre. Based on the vastly positive reviews on TripAdvisor, we opted for the Hotel Biskajer, and were very pleased with the decision.

The hotel is located a few metres from Jan van Eyckplein, just north of the Markt, and is thus ideally located to explore Bruges. There's a large number of restaurants in the surroundings and a bus stop nearby to get to and from the train station.

Our room was relatively small, with a metre or so on each side of the double bed, but very clean and quite functional with small closets on each side of the bed, a small desk and a good bathroom with a bathtub/shower. The bed was a bit sunken though, and a bit more lighting would have been nice. The wifi signal worked properly during all our stay.

Breakfast was included with our rate. It didn't include warm dishes, only the usual selection of yogurts, cold cuts, cheese, fruit salad etc. but the bread and pastries were tasty.

We were very pleased with the friendly and attentive service. On our arrival and the next day, the staff at the desk took time to help us orient ourselves and informed us of special events in town on that day.

All in all, nothing spectacular, but a very decent little hotel with very competitive rates, a good service and a convenient location, perfect to enjoy Bruges.

Good location. The rooms were smallish and a bit dark, but clean and comfortable. Breakfast was just adequate. The receptionist was a bit haughty, his nose somewhat bent out of shape for some reason - unpleasant.

That's a nice centrally located hotel, pretty decently clean etc, but expect mediocre quality; room is a bit shabby, shower dark and tiny, bed shabby a bit (but Ok), breakfast quite poorly provided, no A/C - it was cool enough we we could leave window open but it was also noisy in the street... service polite but not very friendly. For example, upon checkout, lobby told us the Internet connection would `unfortunately automatically disconnect` - while he obviously did it manually so we don't dwell in his email (we had something urgent to send), this was just funny and a bit annoying. Still, got a pretty good price for it and Bruges is amazing so I'm happy.
