“Great location”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 January 2009

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/

This is a lovely hotel in an ideally situated position, within minutes walk of all the main sites.
each room is different, after looking at the internet site we chose room 2, an excellent choice, the room was very cosy with a kingsize double bed, which I can honestly say was the best I have ever slept in. There is a balcony (not a great view, but nice to sit out at the end of the day with a drink) plasma wall mounted tv (with BBC1 & 2/ ITV) a built in living glow fire, a fridge, coffee making facilities, and 2 fish tanks with tropical fish (very theraputic)
The toilet has a large shower cubicle with a superb power shower and sitting area (ideal to let the hot water run over your shoulders and back) There is also a surprise with the water system which is fantastic, it applies to the shower and wash hand basin, but will not tell you what it is as it would spoil it for you.
The hotel is spotlessly clean, and maid service is daily, towel change as you need them.
There is a bar downstairs with the drinks priced at reasonable rates.
Hotel rates include a superb breakfast, we were offered eggs and ham cooked either in omelette/scrambled/ fried way.
A selection of local bread, croissants, meats and cheese.
Cereal/yoghurt/fresh fruit/pure juice tea and coffee, certainly one of the better breakfasts I have enjoyed over the years.
The staff are all friendly and speak excellent English, you also get a Brugge discount card as thankyou for staying with them and this entitles you to money off various attractions in the area.

Found this hotel online, and personally emailed the staff, who could not have been nicer or more accommodating. The hotel is an easy 10-15 minute walk from the train station, and in a great location for everything else. We checked out early and had to miss breakfast, and the staff prepared a beautiful package for us to take upstairs the night before. There is a great lounge to hang out in (if you can stand the smell of smoke drifting in from the bar), with TV and free internet! We stayed in room 6, which had a cozy loft bed and a pull out couch, the only weird part was the partially transparent bathroom door. We were there for one night and wish it could have been longer!

Can't add much more to the previous reviews really. Lovely place, great location, lovely clean room with excellent views.

Breakfast great, and nice to be relaxed between 8-10, rather than the frenzied rush to have breakfast before 9 as in English B & B's. Plenty of choice, and enough to fill you up till late afternoon.

The bike hire is really useful, and very cheap at 5Euros a day.

The staff are very helpful and very pleasant.

All-in-all, I would recommend it to anyone, and the stairs are nowhere near as steep as made out by earlier reviewers.

The smoky bar was only bad one night - all they need is an open window.

Visiting Hotel in July, travelling on my own. A Bit hairy if you coming from Charerloi to Brugges, Brussels central train station very confusing, but once you on it its grand!

Hotel was lovely, bedroom with kitchenette and big bathroom. Bed was really comfortable with huge big pillows!

The only issues I had was smell of stale smoke everywhere, but it is a smoking hotel. Bathroom floor not the cleanest and carpet could have done with updating. Also could hear very noisy guests the first night but after that it was fine. No AC just a mosquito plug in.

But is so close (30 secs) from main street, and staff are so helpful and friendly, that apart from the bathroom everything else you would overlook.

Very reasonable rate of only €70.00 per night, think if I went again on my own would go for four star bigger hotel with more facilities, but for cheap and cheerful stay for a couple or group it's worth it as not much time would be spent in room really.

  • Liked — the bed and tv screen on wall
  • Disliked — The cleanliness of bathroom poor and smell of stale smoke

The Hotel Salvators saved our trip to Brugge! We had booked a horrible hotel (Hotel Koffieboontje) and were wandering the city depressed, hoping that we could get ourselves drunk enough that we could just pass out and not have to think about how disgusting our accomodations were, when we happened upon the Hotel Salvators.

It was adorable, affordable and had rooms available.

We canceled our reservation at the other hotel (despite the fact that we had pre-paid and couldn't get our money back) and high-tailed it back to Hotel Salvators. The room was great. It was clean, comfortable and charming. We had a nice little sitting area, a comfortable bed, and nice light coming in through two paned windows with window boxes. The view of the street was charming and the hotel is extremely centrally located.

The breakfast was good and included make-your-own soft boiled eggs. There is a nice breakfast room/lounge, where some guests hung out in the evenings (we did not). Bike rentals are available for only 5 Euro and the staff were helpful when we asked for help getting a cab to the train station.

All in all, it was an amazing value for only 70 Euro per night. In fact, it would have felt like a good value for significantly more than that.

Highly recommended.

  • Liked — Affordable and comfortable. A great value.
  • Disliked — The stairs up to the room were steep and narrow. A very minor concern for us, but would be difficult for those with disabilities or physical limitations.

Hotel Salvators is in a very cute building and would have been perfect except for one thing - the overwhelming smell of smoke. As soon as you come into the building, it hits you like a ton of bricks. The whole room was saturated with the smell. Other than that, the hotel was very nice. Our room, which was on the top floor, had a loft and skylight. The bathroom was clean and recently redone. The room itself was a little 70's looking, but it wasn't bad. The hotel also has a cat. If you aren't a cat person, it will leave you alone, but if you are, it was nice to pet. The hotel has a decently large selection for breakfast and also has WiFi. Overall, it was a pleasant stay.
