The reason I chose this hotel for a mini-break, was the price and the location. It is in the heart of Brugge, and you can be in the main squares within minutes. The hotel is basically a converted house, and only has nine rooms. We were on the top floor. The room itself is a little small but is extremely clean. The bed looked inviting with crisp white sheets, and I had no concerns about hygiene., The bathroom too, was spotless. There were coffee and tea making facilities in the room. Breakfast was good. There was a large variety ranging from croissants, to fruit, to ham/cheese and breads, and all appeared fresh and again I had no apprehension about the cleanliness. The hotel owner was VERY helpful and approachable, a huge help during our trip, supplying us with little maps and tips about where/what to do.
So in summary, I would certainly return to this quaint hotel. What I would say to people contemplating this hotel is this :- if you are looking for a great location within easy reach of the Centre, if you are looking for a good price, friendly owners, clean accomodation , - then this could be for you, Especially if like me, you view a hotel as comfortable base from which to go about your trip. If you are looking for all the 'bells and whistles', then you need to pay more.. Walking around Brugge, there are some beautiful hotels there, which would indeed be more luxurious - obviously the price would reflect this. So I guess I'm saying that you get what you pay for. However,this more than fitted the bill, and I will definetely be returning to this hotel.
As for Brugge itself, - Wow ! Please consider hiring a bike to get around.- it's very easy as Brugge is flat. We had a great time cycling around. So many beautiful sights to see, you will not be disappointed. Remember your camera !
