Bruges is a wonderful city in which to spend a few days, the locals are friendly, the food is great and don't forget the beers!! The city is a fine example of medieval architecture and Hotel Goezeput is a very old converted monastery/convent.
The room we had was on the top floor up a winding staircase, and naturally because it is an old building there isn’t a lift and no air conditioning. We stayed there during very warm weather for May and having a south facing room on the top floor it was very warm in the room. The curtains remained closed as much as possible during the day and open during the night to let what little breeze there was in and sleeping on top of the sheets incurred several large mozzie bites!! However, that (and the too soft bed) are the only downsides to this hotel and frankly for the location and price (€40 ppn) it was worth it.
The location is in a residential part of the old town about 10 minutes walk from the train station. It is then only about 5 minutes from the Markt and the Burg and the very pleasant Dijver street beside a canal. There are plenty of restaurants and bars in the area and no end to the sights and places to visit.
The staff in the hotel are very friendly, the breakfast, although it doesn’t have a good selection (bread, ham, cheese, fruit and preserves) there’s plenty there and a small terrace, which in the heat was very welcome in the mornings. The rooms are all ensuite although ours was cosy to say the least! However, it was clean.
I’d recommend this hotel for its price, convenience and friendliness, but if the weather is warm and you get a room at the top of the house you might find it a little uncomfortable. (I’m guessing it could also be a little cold in the winter, although there was a substantial radiator in the room.)
