We stayed here for two nights in September 2013. We were looking for a hotel which was near the town centre but still in a quiet spot in Bruges. We found this hotel and booked it for a midweek citytrip.
We arrived by train and then took the bus to the hotel. The busstop is just around the corner on the Jan Van Eyckplein. We were welcomed by a very friendly young man who checked us in with no hurry at all even while there was another couple behind us. He took the time to explain the history of the location, where the name came from and what kind of place this particular spot in Bruges was in the Golden Era. He gave us tips on sightseeing, attractions and which to avoid. He explained how the hotel works, gave us a map where he pointed out the most famous attractions and offered us help when we needed to find a particular restaurant / attraction.
We had room 102 which had a nice view on the front square. It was big enough for the two of us with a great bed which was comfy and gave us no trouble on sleeping, a shower/tub combination, toilet, sink, small tv (which we didn't use), telephone and two built-in large closets.
The front doors of the hotel close at 20:00 / 8 pm but can be opened with your own room key.
Breakfast was being served as a buffet in a room next to the reception and bar-area. It is a small room but large enough to house most of the guests at the same time. On our trip, the hotel was fully booked but we didn't have any problems of finding a table to sit. The buffet was being refilled regularly and the host came to ask if you want some coffee or tea.
On checking out he helped us by finding the best way back to the station (walking would cost you twenty minutes, which I don't mind, but with a suitcase on those roads it can be a pain). We could take a bus on the Jan van Eyckplein but with a change of busses somewhere. On the Markt hower we could take bus 2 which brought us directly to the station.
When we return to Bruges we will definitely book this hotel again.
