Let me start by saying the hotel was very nice, bordering on posh, starting with the first impression: an entry down a side street, into a courtyard and then into the 'lobby,' which is more like a large alcove than the impersonal registration desks at most hotels. Our room - including the bathroom - was spacious and well decorated.
If you are in Bruges and want a luxurious stay, this is the hotel - just be prepared to pay for it. For example, they charge 20 euros for internet service and even charge for use of the computers in the business center - at a time when almost all hotels offer both for free. Breakfast was 30 euros per person. However, the hotel is centrally located and within a five minute walk you can find a large number of cafes where, for 40 euros four of us had our fill of coffee, croissants and scrambled eggs.
Overall, the experience was positive and we'd recommend a stay there, particularly if you can find a good price on the internet.
