“Warning of noise from cars over the cobbled street!”
Reviewed 14 August 2008

This is a really nice hotel and we got it for a great price. We paid around £340 for flights and 4 nights at the De Goezeput through Travelrepublic.

We arrived late on the Thursday and were given a double instead of the twin we'd booked. We were told that they couldn't changed the room until the next day as the hotel was full - first black mark.

The breakfast was really very good and the staff were friendly and helpful. There is one computer with free access to the internet which was handy.

The rooms were clean but basic - the TV was tiny but we did manage to get BBC1 and BBC2 and could watch some of the Olympics before bed!

No drink making facilities in the room though and the staircase up to the second floor is difficult to navigate safely with narrow stairs and low beams.

The worst part of the stay for us though was in both of the rooms we stayed, the windows faced out onto the cobbled streets. (Which are practically everywhere in Bruges). Between 11pm and 3am there were lots of cars driving (quite fast it seemed) along these cobbles - the noise they made was appauling - it sounded like a train going past the window (which were shut - no double glazing). This meant that we couldn't sleep properly and was very disappointing. I would caustion people on this when deciding whether to book this hotel (or another in Bruges - ask for a quiet room at the back perhaps)

The location of this place is spot on, right in the centre of town, 2 minutes from some nice cafes and bars on the market square. The hotel is simple in its modern design withon an old building.

Its no show stopper of a hotel but for a simple, clean and well located place to rest your head its fine! Its very well priced for what you get, no complaints to make!

The bathroom was a tad small and a little caravan like - but no big deal for a night or two really!

Bargain find - shame the Bruges weather wasnt any better!!!

Easy to walk to from the train station. Good location just south of the city centre. Quiet street.. Agreeable wood-panelled public areas. My (single) room was only as pleasant as an awkwardly-partitioned space can be, but acceptable. On the whole clean, relaxed and good value. [Note that you may have to use the entry-phone by the front door if there is no-one around.]

We stayed at this hotel for four nights this week. It was great, we paid about 5 Euro a day extra for a 'special' room and were given room 10 at the top of the building. It was really nice, a huge room with exposed beams and a wooden floor. The hotel is in a very pretty building and nicely renovated. The bathroom was small as mentioned in other reviews but it was all in working order and clean. Breakfast was basic but good quality and plentiful.
We traveled to Brugge by train and this hotel was in an ideal position, it was a ten minutes walk at most from the station and then a further five minutes past the hotel to the historic Market. We couldn't have been in a better location. So take a travel kettle if you want a cuppa in the room and get yourself to Goezeput!!

After many hours searching online for a suitable hotel to compliment our stay in Bruges I came across the fabulous Goezput website. Beautiful pictures of 'tasteful arty' rooms, wonderful reviews on their website. Sadly the reality was for me one of great contrast. After a harrowing journey, most of which spent lost along the cobbled streets due to roadworks close to the hotel, which we had not been notified of, we reached the place at 2pm to an uncleaned room!

On reaching our room we were saddened by its unclean, cramped feel and the makeshift boxlike bathroom structure incongruously built next to the bed! The 'bathroom' or box was poorly ventilated, mouldy, smelly, and afforded very little privacy to its occupant! We were greeted by a used elastoplast on the floor!

There were no tea or coffee making facilities in the room, surely a basic requirement for even low budget accommodation in this day and age! The room had no internal locking system and we were rudely walked in on by noisy cleaners whilst trying to rest.

I would certainly not call this a family friendly establishment as we were kept awake by rowdy people in the hotel bar until a very late hour. The final affront being that our much needed lie in was completely destroyed by noisy builders in the adjacent property.

I was utterly disappointed by the poor standard of the hotel, I have stayed in more luxurious hostels and it grieves me to say that a travel lodge would have been preferable. We tried to give feedback to the hotel but they would not publish this honest review on their website!!

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.)

My girlfriend and I wanted to make good use of the long summer, so we drove to Brugge in Belgium for a nice weekend get away. Normally we chose a hotel chain, but we wanted something more authentic and optioned for De Goezeput.

De Goezeput located in the hart of the city, with every major tourist attraction in walking distance. The hotel is located in an old monastry. When you enter the building, you arrive in the main hall with an old large wooden staircase and a door to the small reception to your right. The reception is manned by young and very cheerfull staff and check-in was quick and easy, including tips about where to park your car the cheapest in the city (which is near the train station).

There is no elevator at De Goezeput and our room was on the upper floor of the building, right at the attic. Our room was old, with the wooden beams clearly visible in the ceiling for that genuine old look! Our room wasn't revamped yet, but the hotel was doing a revamp of the rooms while we were there.

The room had two beds, which were a little soft for my taste, a small seating area and a couch. In one corner of the room was sort of large box, which was the bathroom with toilet and shower. The bathroom was old and outdated, but it fullfilled it's function.

Breakfast is served in the small, but pleasent bar of the hotel (at the reception) and although the choice wasn't that big, it was enough.

All in all, the Goezeput was a nice little hotel, with some flaws, but all hotels have that! If you want to try something else than a hotel chain, I can recommend this one to you.
