Hotel Portinari is not perfect but nothing is these day's. On the whole it is value for money. We were driving to Bruge from England, as we left the ferry terminal we easily found the E40 which runs right to Bruge, from the E40 we left and joined the N397 going North. The Hotel is just 5 minutes from the... More

The most fabulous city to visit over Valentines weekend. Curious, quaint, picturesque, lively. Plenty to see and do. The chocolate cafés and Waffles are amazing. A little pricey though in some. Hotel Portinari is perfectly located at a 10min stroll from the train station, and 5 mins from the old town centre.

Our whole experience from check-in to check-out was flawless. Our room was in the front of the hotel which was huge (we will definitely request the same room next time) with a large bathroom (bath and shower). Three large floor to ceiling windows which opened to reveal a second set of windows. Went to bed Friday night looking out at... More

Recently had a three night stay at this establishment as part of a private flanders tour. We were given a warm welcome by the male member of staff on reception and were pleased to find that our room was already available (at 12noon). We had requested a room at the back of the hotel, to avoid any noise from the... More

From the moment we arrived tdo the moment we left the whole hotel experience was excellent. Friendly and warm welcome. Well appointed and spotless rooms. Well located on the T'zant with only a short walk to the main attractions and station.

Stayed there for business for some days. I found the service really not up to speed. Most of the time, no employee at the reception, at the bar....Room was so so. Toilet not well thought (see my picture!). The + points : close to many restaurants, parking just under the hotel (3.70 EUR for parking over night). Will not return... More

Dear Anne-Christine, Thank you for your effort writing a review.Since your opinion is somewhat different then what we usualy receive allow me to add two remarks so that all readers better understand the situation here. First of all the carpark costs 8.70€ for 24 hours and not 3.70. As I have responded earlier already we have different room types standard... More

This is a very convenient hotel for seeing the main attractions in Bruges. Easy to find if driving there from the channel ports (use AA route map). Our room was comfortable and clean & we were on a high enough floor to have a good view of the Belfry & cathedral in the City. The buffet breakfast was very good... More

The hotel is ideally situated for the main attractions. Everything is easy walking distance. The staff are very friendly and helpful and the rooms are clean and comfortable, although the room I had was very small. There are numerous bars and restaurants within 50m of the hotel and the bars next door are open very late/early depending on your outlook.... More
