I love Brugge! It's the most beautiful city I have ever been and I am quite a traveler. Stayed here for 4 nights in august, 2010. My second time in Brugge, so I knew what to expect. The prices of hotels close to city centre where high, so when I found this 2 stars hotel at 70 euro/room in high season I was a little bit skeptical. After reading the reviews, I decided to book it anyway, although I usually stay at 3 or 4 stars hotels. But I use the room only to take a shower and sleep, so I needed it to be clean. And I was not disappointed at all! As stated here, it was renovated, with clean rooms, big enough (both room and bathroom) for two persons. Yes, I stayed in bigger rooms, with larger bathrooms and brand new sink and tub, but this is a 2 stars hotel in Brugge, not a cheap city. It could use a curtain for the tub and better ventilation. The bed was comfortable, although at a minimum size for two normal two thin people. These aren’t bad things, just things you have to expect. I was surprised to have a LCD in the room, meaning that the family that runs the hotel cares for their guests. Being an old and classical building, it didn't have an elevator, so it's quite a problem to climb the steep stairs with a large suitcase, but you only do that twice, at arrival and leaving, so it's OK.
But by far the best thing at Asiris is their amazing breakfast, with plenty to choose from, different sorts of cheese and meat, homemade pies, eggs, cereals, and so on... Great start for a full day walk! The breakfast room was very beautiful decorated, as seen in the picture. Our hosts were very kind and helped us to reclaim our luggage, lost by Ryanair, of course... For the night, at the entry you have to use a code to get in, which is very at hand, since they don't have a 24h reception.
So, overall, a very pleasant stay at Asiris. A clean, comfortable hotel, in a classical building for medieval Brugge. Will stay here again and I recommend it. In the city centre you'll find 3 and 4 stars hotels, probably with bigger and newer rooms, but expect to pay at least 150 euro/room. Better pay 70 at Asiris and use the difference to buy lots and lots of renowned Belgian chocolate! :)
