We booked 1 night in Bruges on route to Germany and it was our first time in this medieval city. Having read lots of reviews on trip advisor we decided to go with the Hotel Salvators as it looked very nice for the money - 90 euros for a double room in the centre of a city seemed good value.
We were not disappointed when we got there and the hotel had a nice traditional appearance on the corner of a fairly quiet street which was just off one of the main streets close to the Christmas Markets.
We were lucky in that there was a spare parking place on the road right outside the hotel - parking is free between 19:00 and 09:00. For the extra couple of hours we needed either side of this window, it cost approx. 4E for 2 hours. Very reasonable and we didn`t have the hassle of having to move the car.
We had room number 8 on the 3rd floor which was unusual as it had an extremely tall sloping roof, which is common of the architecture in Bruges. We had a golden teddy bear light on the wall above our bed which was special! In additional they promise a surprise in each room, ours was a round red ball lamp which you could detach from it`s power supply - can`t say we reaklly used it but it makes such a change to stay in an individual hotel with character - there was even a sign in the reception stating this is definitely not a Novotel!
Contrary to some reports we were not kept awake by the Salvators Church clock - it did not sound at night and I think it only started at 08:00am.
Breakfast was excellent and had a very homely feel - scrambed egg was cooked especially for us.
The lounge next to the breakfast room had a big roaring open log fire which was an inviting place to be in the evening - if you have time! The fire was was also lit in the morning and you can also eat your breakfast there if you prefer.
All in all this was a great experience and we would recommend this to anyone seeking a hotel with character in the centre of Bruges at a realistic price!
PS - if you visit Bruges in November - January check out the ice sculpture show, it`s well worth a visit! http://www.icesculpture.be/
