We splashed out extra for a bigger room in the main building and as we found out when we walked past a room that ours was half the size. The room we had was an acceptable size but it was advertised as a bigger room and we did pay extra. The bed was comfortable and the room was clean and quiet. The shower was a shower/bath and the bath was too narrow so you always got wafted with the grubby shower curtain. The breakfast had a good amount of choice.
The hotel was too understaffed (one person running the whole thing during the day) and this meant that if you want to leave or are returning and the one person is showing someone to the room, you end up standing around. This leads me to another sore point. Why return the room key to the desk when they then hang it up in plain sight behind reception, which is often not staffed. Perfect place to burgle? Surely the room keys in this situation are safer on the guests?
The best thing about the hotel is the location. Close enough to the centre of Bruges but not so close that you get all the evening noise.
Pretty astoundingly average really.
