“Clean, quaint, great location”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 July 2012

We loved Bruges and we loved staying at the Cordoeainer. Simple, clean, just off of the market area and perfect for sight seeing and close to great restaurants. If you are a beer lover the rose red cafe in the hotel has an amazing selection of Trappist and Belgian beers in a cozy atmosphere. There are only a few others bars in town that will rival the selection at rose red. Staff was great- we would definitely stay here again.

Stayed here on a short break. Received friendly welcome and reception staff very helpful
We had a room for three with a double and two single beds. Good size and VERY comfortable beds. Shower was excellent, too.
Good selection at breakfast with friendly service.
Situated a stone's throw from the Market Place and just around the corner from the Chocolate Factory.
Would recommend this hotel without hesitation.

Room Tip: Ask for room overlooking courtyard.

I liked this place basic no frills city centre location a nice cafe bar open till around midnight or so offering a nice mix of local beers.The staircaes are winding and if you are over six foot mind yer hied (watch your head). The rooms are clean but a little small but ours did have both loo and shower and enough room to get round the bed as always our travel inflatable pillows were needed never stayed in a hotel where I could rely on their pillows not to give a stiff neck the next morning either to soft or too hard. The room was clean and the bed great not to soft.
There was no lift in this hotel that I saw and access to the rooms were through 2 different entrances. Your key was for the main door no 24 hour reception.
Breakfast was good a basic range of cerial, cold meat, cheese and breads they also offered yoghurt and fruit.
A good basic hotel fine for 2-4 night stay as there was limited storeage for clothing and cases but for a short stay on a budget in beautiful city great.

Room Tip: Room numbers starting 3 anyone over 6 ft needs to watch their head on the stairs

Hello,
Thank you for the review on Tripadvisor.
"Big people" should indeed watch their head on the staircases. In the "old days" I believe, people were a lot smaller (it was build in 1625).
We do not have a 24h reception; reception is open from 8a.m untill 23p.m. But you can always reach us by using the phone in your room.
We hope to welcome you again someday in Bruges!
Kind regards
nathalie, reception

My title says it all really and I can only support many of the earlier reviews. I have stayed here twice and will do so again.
Lets start with the facilities, rooms are small and fairly basically furnished and the bathrooms are tiny. The rooms do however have some individual character and are perfectly acceptable for a city centre property being clean and comfortable.
Kris and the staff are all really obliging and helpful. There is an attached bar ( The Cafe Rose Red) which doubles up as a breakfast room and breakfast is buffet style with both hot and cold choices.
The bar is open throughout the day and in the evenings and serves a great range of trappist beers.
The big pluses for this hotel are its location, just a few minutes from the main Markt and its budget price which is remarkable for somewhere so central.

Great place for a short city visit, probably not for you if you are looking for a special romantic weekend.

Stayed here for a night with a friend. Rooms nicely decorated, bit of character to them which was nice. The hotel is just a few minutes of the main square in Brugge and the sights. We had breakfast which, was buffet style. Enjoyed our stay and were disappointed that it was fully booked for the following night as we had to stay in a chain hotel. Overall, good value.

The location was great - just 2 very short blocks and you were in the main square. Our room was very basic. It faced the street but all was quiet. The room did get really warm during our stay. We were on the 3rd floor and one of the 2 windows was painted shut and no breeze came in at all. Also, the door to the balcony doesn't open. The warm, stuffy air made sleeping difficult. We asked for a fan but one was not available. It was an annoyance at the end of June, but it would have been a major discomfort if the weather heated up any at all. The courtyard is lovely, and a great place to take your breakfast. With the bar, there were plenty of public spaces. I would stay there again for the value and location, but only if I was guaranteed a different room with more fresh air.

Room Tip: It looked like the rooms over the courtyard maybe had doors or windows that opened.

The hotel is very conveniently located a 5 minute walk from Market Square. Our room was clean and comfortable, not big, but adequate. The staff were helpful and friendly. I loved the Red Rose Cafe on the main floor. Breakfast was also nice. Our room faced the street and was on the third floor, and it was quiet, but the stairs could be a challenge for someone who isn't sure-footed. I would stay here again!
