Hotel Bourgoensch Hof
Ranked #53 of 97 Hotels in Bruges
Reviewed 5 December 2013

First the pros, this hotel is in an excellent position, a few minutes walk from the Markt. The bed was comfortable the room large. The view from the window was attractive, with swans and ducks. The linen clean and towels worn but clean.
The cons, there was nobody to greet us on arrival. We were given canal view rooms, in the cellar! Next to the defunct toilets and the cleaners store. The smell was one of damp and decay that pervaded the nostrils, horrid. The room was so dark and dismal any longer a deep depression would have ensued. No fridge, no room safe, plenty of toilet paper but no tissues. Ghastly. The proprietor, obviously used to complaints was polite but impervious. This is really a two star establishment.
Would I return, definitely not.

It took us just 2 minutes to find the hotel after departing the bus from the train station. The surrounding area is perfect - smack-bang in the middle of Bruges City Centre - overlooking the main canal and directly next door to a fabulous Belgium Beer bar with one of the nicest beer gardens I've ever been in. We went in late November, and beside the fact that the room was a little small - I have nothing else bad to say. The bathroom was very modern (gorgeous power shower) and the view was stunning - we overlooked the street below which at first disappointed me as I was hoping for a Canal view, however after just a few hours of having the wall-long windows open onto the street below, hearing horses trotting past every few minutes and smelling the delicious aroma of melted, Belgian chocolate from the shops on the street - I couldn't have been happier. Bruges itself is a beautiful place, with plenty to do for couples and parties of holiday makers looking to relax and take in some scenery. Myself and my partner visited for 4 nights for our 3 year anniversary - we are in our early 20's and I can honestly say I enjoyed every second of my stay. The buffet breakfast was delicious. All fresh produce and a lovely selection of tea's. I haven't much enjoyed continental breakfasts in the past, but this one changed my mind. A very quiet and probably too warm room (probably the reason behind the huge amount of floor length windows) - in what was one of the most beautiful buildings in the whole of the centre - I was shocked that we'd booked such a gorgeous hotel for the price we'd paid. Thank you to the staff for a lovely stay and we both hope to be back sometime over the next few years for another trip to a fairy-tale town.

Stayed here for two nights along with two other couples for a weekend break to see the Christmas markets. The bedrooms were small with en suites but clean and tidy. Bed sheets had a couple of holes in them so not too impressed with that. Room overlooked the river so a stunning view. So ok, nothing fantastic.

Breakfast was a bit of a scrum with the coffee frequently running out and not being refilled. Buffet type continental breakfast was ok (hams, eggs, bread, muesli, cheeses etc). You had to be lucky to get everything you wanted in one go without having to wait for the solitary serving lady to top things up.

It was €270 for two nights B&B so not cheap but ok (ish) for a very central Bruges location. The hotel is very close to all the shops, markets, restaurants etc.

Bruges, by the way, is simply stunning!

This was our second visit to the Hotel Bourgoensch Hof and we would certainly stay here again on a visit to Bruges. The hotel is full of character with a fantastic view from the dining area over a very picturesque section of the canals. The central location is perfect for exploring the many attractions in the city as well as being adjacent to some superb shops. We are always impressed by the friendliness of the staff who offer a very warm welcome and provide advise on everything from taxis to events in the city. Our room was newly refurbished, tasteful and comfortable with an excellent ensuite bathroom having loads of hot water and a powerful hair dryer. Breakfast is well presented with lovely cereals, breads and pastries. A truly excellent hotel from which to explore and then relax at the end of the day.

We arrived early and the staff were helpful and friendly. We left cases and went off to explore this beautiful city. Our room was spacious clean and bathroom was lovely. The continental breakfast was refreshed often and the crusty bread was beautiful. Would definately stay here again - Bruges itself was very expensive especially to eat but is very beautiful.
