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

Great location- max 10 minutes walk from the historical center and all places of interest. The rooms and all the hotel were nice and clean. The staff is nice and helpful. Excellent for the price. You can not ask for more to explore the beautiful town of Brugge.

Positives - We drove from the UK on Friday 28 November and did not have any trouble finding this hotel. It was in a good location, approx. 10 mins walk from main square, it was near shops and restaurants and there was a Saturday market right outside the door We went to check in but our room wasn't ready, which...

Dear Jo, thank you for your visit and effort to review us. We will of course use your recommendations when refurbishing the hotel. Please have a look to the other reviews concerning my person, it looks that not everybody (in fact nobody) claims that I have a lack of service skills. I have a copy of the CCTV footage for... More

The good: This hotel is perfectly situated at the end of one of Bruges shopping streets. The staff are friendly and know near perfect English. Our room was minimal but nicely decorated. The bad: Our double bed was 2 singles together meaning they split as soon as someone crossed 'the border' The 4th floor hallway smelt bad like a toilet
