Lovely family run hotel. had a homely feel with lovely room with an excellent sized bathroom and lovely big double bed. Owner was really friendly and nothing too much trouble! Food was fresh and plentiful. In a good location, quiet enough from noise but central to reach all the sights within a couple of minutes.

Room Tip: Simply ask for your requirements and she will try and meet them.

We stayed here for our 40th wedding anniversary. The room was brand new on the ground floor with the bathroom in the cellar (Not quite finished) The owner is very friendly and the breakfast was excellent in a fantastic room. If you need parking then this is one hotel to recommend as it has a garage and is only a couple of minutes from the town centre. We will definetly go back this hotel when we are in Brugge

We stayed at Hotel Maraboe for one night in June for a quick city break. Being the first time driving in Europe I found the hotel very easy to find. I had requested a parking space in the hotels secure car park (10E night), but on arrival reaslied that there was plenty of parking available in the square opposite for a lower cost.

We were checked into our room quickly and were given one of there newly decorated rooms on the ground floor. The room was a good size, with a large double bed, wardrobe, TV, Phone and a nice size bathroom. The bathroom was quite a surprise with the awesome walk in shower. There is no hairdrier though so be warned. The only downside to the room was it was right by an alleyway where people and vehicles went past. The hotel also has a sauna and gym, although the sauna will set you back 10E and they have to start it an hour before you can use it. The hotels breakfast was great, small selection of cold meats, various cereals, tea/coffee, bread/toast and spreads, orange juice...not bad seen as its included.

The Hotel is very close to centre of Bruges, with plenty of nice resturants just across the road. There is also a supermarket quite close if you need something for lunch.

On checkout we asked if we could leave our vehicle in their garage whilst we wandered for a bit longer. This was fine and there was no extra charge.

The owners of this hotel are very friendly and made out short stay very relaxing and enjoyable. We would recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: Ground floor rooms have been redecorated according to the owner

Stayed at the Hotel Maraboe in July in one of the rooms at the front. Room was ok but a bit threadbare and noisy, lacked air-conditioning and you wouldn't want to leave the windows open because of the noise.

Staff are very friendly and this makes up for the rooms. This is also a hotel that has understood WiFi should be available for free throughout - excellent!

Good location in reasonable walking distance of the market square, and of course plenty to do in Beautiful Bruges especially if like us you enjoy sampling proper beer!

If you want an alternative hotel to look at try the Hotel Anselmus - we stayed there one year earlier and I would say the rooms were slightly better.

Room Tip: Ask for a room at the back of the hotel

I think this was one of the nicest hotels we stayed at on our 2 week tour of europe, the detail of the furnishings were amazing and the breakfast room stunning..a lot of thought has gone into it. We had a newly refurbished room on the ground floor which was very cool, dimmer lights and a mix of modern and cosy.. I was impressed with the decor! We couldn't get the internet in our room, didn't seem to reach but worked in reception. Parking was nearby and inexpensive and the location was very good. The lady was very nice but I think Belgian (men especially) find it hard to crack a smile. Bruges is gorgeous!

My wife and I very much enjoyed our stay here. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The room was very nice. We easily walked from and back to the train station with our bags and the walk into the town center was not a problem at all.

We had a great stay back in May. The room was clean- the bathroom was immaculate. The wifi access was a bonus! We had breakfast included & we were so impressed with what they prepared! Ham, cheese, toast & good coffee. The location was good too- we took a 5 min cab ride from the train station as we had luggage. The hotel is about 5 min walk from the shops in Bruge. Highly recommended!
