“Fantastic value esp if you are a group”
Reviewed 20 September 2011

Recently refurbished, and only a short walk to Markt and T'zand. Has a good bar with friendly locals and staff. We booked in upon arrival when our other accomodation was frankly dangerous.

This hotel gave us a roomy 4 ded room for the first night, found us another hotel for the second, then for the rest of the week gave us a 3 bed room. Just for the two of us. Rates are very good and they will negotiate if you plan to stay for a few days.

Room Tip: The rooms on the top floor have lots of character

We stayed for 4 nights in March and recommend Hotel Groeninghe. Laurence, the hostess, was very friendly and helpful, recommending places to eat where we enjoyed good food and atmosphere. We thought that this was a reasonably priced small hotel, well situated in Bruges, where we were made to feel very welcome. If you do not need facilities like swimming pools or exercise rooms but would like a clean, comfortable room with a good continental style breakfast and access to a comfortable lounge then consider this a good option.

We stayed at Groeninghe following a recommendation from a friend who has stayed there on many occasions. The location is excellent, in the city, and a stone's throw from the shopping street and main sqaure. Johan and Lawrence (the hosts) were more than helpful and gave us a warm welcome! Rooms are bright, clean and comfortable. Breakfast was yummy with good coffee! If you're looking for a cosy get away, that's in the city (and quiet) go to Groeninghe, as you'll find it very hard to beat. Great value for money!

My wife and I were sheltering in the doorway of this hotel from one of the occasional summer showers you get in Bruges. The owner - a stout, dour - looking character, saw us and came across to close the door, pushing us out into the rain!

Draw your own conclusions about the hospitality you can expect here.

Simply fantastic!

Very generous and delicious breakfast, including cold cuts, cheeses, various breads, cereals, fruits, yogurt, juices, milk, coffee, tea, hot chocolate, eggs, innumerable spreads, etc.

Excellent location in a quiet street near the concert hall. The hotel is only a 10 minute walk from the train station too.

The hotel is well kept and the towels and sheets are changed daily. An alarm clock is provided too. The bathroom is clean and modern. Importantly, there is free wi-fi internet access. The hotel dates back to the 1850s, and staying there gave me a much better feel for the city since the hotel blends in with the rest of historical Brugge.

The hotel is family-owned, and everyone was extremely kind, helpful, and quick to offer advice on places to visit and to eat at.

I visited Brugge for a scientific conference in June, and I would definitely go back and stay at Hotel Groeninghe in a heartbeat. Thanks Laurence and Johan!

Minor Comments: I thought that the hotel room rate was appropriate. Although, some luxury hotels like the Crowne Plaza may be much newer and more up-scale, they are also much more expensive. In any case, I enjoyed staying at Hotel Groeninghe because I felt like I was genuinely living in Brugge. Other reviewers have mentioend that there are some stairs which may be problematic if you have limited mobility or have a lot of luggage. While there, I did not see anyone have a problem though. There is only one key per room, so if you are sharing a room and split up to see the city, you may have to leave your key at the front desk.
