Hotel Olympia Bruges
Ranked #61 of 97 Hotels in Bruges
Reviewed 26 October 2011

Probably the most frendly and helpful staff of any hotel we have stayed in. The hotel is situated in a pleasant quite residential district about half an hours walk from the centre, with plenty of on road parking. The hotel is very clean with comfortable beds, athough the decor is looking dated. Very good value.

We enjoyed our stay in this hotel. Our room was spacious, the bathroom was fine. The hotel is in a very quiet location but there seems to be little soundproofing between the rooms. Fortunately our neighbors were quiet and we had a good night's sleep. My husband enjoyed the artwork on the walls.
Our room was on the ground floor. The window was very large and when it was open it seemed as if anyone could just walk into the room. Therefore we had to close the window at night. There is a bar in the lounge which also serves cheese toast. This is a nice convenience.

The breakfast was a disappointment. My tea was terrible. There was no fresh fruit, not even an apple, and minimal selection of other foods.

We've stayed here in a group three years running. The hotel is pleasant, nothing fancy, but the staff are friendly. The breakfast is adequate, cereals, yogurts, fresh breads and rolls, hard boiled eggs, ham, cheese, and coffee or tea, but I wouldn't want to stay there for too many days as the lack of variety would begin to tell. The range of cheeses and breads used to be more extensive but they have cut back over the past two years. The rooms are just about large enough, fairly basic, clean and quite comfortable but the walls are very thin! We could hear our neighbours having an argument, word for word. We have heard complaints that it is too far from the centre of Bruges, but for us this is no problem, we enjoy the walk in (approx 15/20 mins, and we walk quite fast) but you could take a taxi if you prefer. There is a hotel bar but it has a very restricted range of bottled Belgium beers, considering that it is in Bruges. It used to stock a wider range and we hope that it will do so again. The only food available in the evening whilst we were there was Croque Monsieur. This is a hotel geared to tour groups and all in all provides a reasonable base and is perfectly adequate for a short stay, with the whole of Bruges with its great bars and cafes just a 20 minute walk away.

Room Tip: ground floor rooms may be noisier than first floor, but all the walls are thin

Hotel used by tour group, felt it was adequate as only staying 4 nights,was concerned as we were on 1st floor at end of corridor no other fire exit available except back along corridor.We were woken on first night by loud snoring from room next door ,this went on each night no other room available,conversations could be heard there seemed to be a problem with the way new windows had been fitted as walls were solid.On saying this we had no other problems,situation was good easy access into the centre of Bruges and to station, owners and staff friendly, everywhere was clean,plenty of hot water.We used our travel kettle without any problem.

Room Tip: Ask for non smoking room on 1st floor

Stayed here for four nights midweek. Hotel is located about 10 minutes walk from t'Zand and 15 minutes walk from the Markt. Room was clean and comfortable, although the bed was a bit soft and the bathroom was tiny (not very good if you are a large person). A road that is busy early morning and early evening (Bruges 'rush hour) runs along the front of the hotel and the heavy traffic tends to wake you at around 6am. Staff were friendly and helpful. Breakfast was standard continental fare with the addition of a toaster and boiled eggs.
Would recommend if you don't mind the walk to and from the centre. Good value at the price.

Room Tip: Avoid rooms on the ground floor as there is a walkway along the back of the hotel.

The hotel is situated about 10 minute walk to the town, however the main market square is a further 10 minute walk through the cobbled streets.
The hotel itself is clean, the breakfast was as we expected.
Our room was clean and adequate for our stay, however we were not able to use the travel kettle and there was no facilities in the room to make Tea/coffee. Tea and Coffee is avaliable from the bar, however this is expensive.
The only downside to this hotel was that there was no food avaiable during the day or evening.
We took a 8 month old baby with us and they couldn't do enough for him. The staff were very helpful, polite and friendly.
If all your are looking for is a cosy place to stay then we would recommend this hotel.
