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

Very pleasant stay in Bruges. A friendly guy checked us in & out and was helpful during our stay. The location was very central with lots of bars & restaurants close by too. We were v comfortable throughout our stay.

stayed in the Portinari whilst visiting the Brugge Beer Festival last weekend. It was a very convenient hotel for the festival and for the other attractions of Brugge. Staff were very good - excellent lesson in Belgian beer on the evening we arrived. Room was fine for our purpose (3 lads on the lash) and I suspect we were given... More

An excellent location and good high class hotel. Has the advantage of car parking. Not to be missed is the tea room/coffee shop on the ground floor for an unbelievably good hot chocolate- absolute heaven!

We stayed here for a few days over New Year. Excellent service from reception the lady took time to advise us of parking and advice on offers in the area which was really helpful. The hotel is ideally located for all the bars and local restaurants. Our room wasn't huge but on the other hand we had a beer fridge... More

Firstly, it's no way a 4 star but a 2 star B&B in a city with more demand for rooms and less supply. Room was very small with a twin bed lined together so can be good for two friends sharing a room but certainly not for a couple on a holiday. Bathroom was a little bigger than the one... More

The portinari is an excellent hotel and I recommend it for anyone willing to visit the belfry tower as its close enough to walk but far enough you can stop by shops or see what restaurant you want to eat in for dinner. The free WiFi is very good and is useful for working out where you want to visit... More

If I had been told this was a 3* hotel I would have been happy with it, but compared to other 4* properties I've stayed in (including Brussels) it was at the lower end of the spectrum. Location was good, quite central, and the breakfast was good but the room was disappointing - tiny, with tiny bathroom and without any... More

Just made our Christmas excursion to Bruges staying at our the Portinari Hotel. While the weather on our arrival was cool outside, the welcome the staff gave us was as warm as the temperature in the Hotel itself. The food and drinks were every bit as good as I remembered from my last visit, and once more I was able... More
