My wife found this as an alternative to a hotel as we have 3 children so it can be tricky finding a place that you are not all squashed into.
Whilst the location takes a bit of searching, for the novice the centre of Brugge is an absolute maze, sat nav will get you to within 100 m and then it is down to old fashioned tracking skills, it is worth it when you get inside.
Once in our apartment was really well designed and fitted out in the chosen element of Metal.
Very stylish with loads of space and 3 bedrooms a big lounge as well as a massive dining area and kitchen.
The new conversion was well thought out and offered the perfect space for us for a few days. When we weren't out and about exploring the big TV with cable and DVD player kept the kids busy and if they needed to let off steam then they could play with a tennis ball in the street outside quite safely as it was a windy road which forced what little traffic there was to go slow.
Parking is a nightmare so do use the official Parking around the corner which was cheap and easy but make sure you have a map as the route back is not direct.
As requested We left a few suggestions as to how the apartment could be improved but they were finishing touches rather than fundamental issues.
Overall the whole set up, organisation and experience were very good, this has clearly been designed by professionals who know their Market and have invested to meet the demands of visitors who want a bit more space than hotels offer but without compromising on quality. In my experience the general level of furnishing is well above the average hotel.
I marked sleep quality down as our ground floor room did face a square with a bar which seemed to attract some noisier revellers and seemed to be open into the early hours, when the drinkers left each night they did not leave quietly or quickly.
We will be back but will stay higher up the building next time.
