First, this is not a proper hotel. It's a restaurant with a couple dirty run down rooms upstairs. There is no reception. A waiter checks you in and checks you out. The hotel is through a door that says "no toilet hotel" which is very confusing. No one helped me carry my bag two flights of stairs. The room I... More

We chose this place based upon the recommendations shown in Trip Advisor. Although the location is great the service and room we were given was terrible. The room was small and in the back of the hotel. Wi-Fi didn't work in the room, the shower was full of mold and the floor dirty. Since they didn't have Air-conditioning we needed... More

Me and my partner stayed here in sept 2014 and found it to be a great hotel. Location cannot be better, it is in the main square of Bruges. 20 mins walk from the main train station with suitcases on cobblestone roads, but there is buses that run from the station to the square. The hotel is also a restaurant... More

Arrived late at night and ended up in here for a meal. When ordering our meal the waiter asked us all "green beans"? We assumed this was part of the meal and agreed - only to find they had been added to our bill at a cost of 6 euros each! There had been absolutely no need to add these... More

Stayed at hotel central recently. Location is brilliant, and for that reason have given an average rating. We upgraded to room 9 with view over the square, so was expecting something fairly decent. What a disappointment, the decor was dark and dreary, and not particularly clean. There was no kettle or tea and coffee making facilities in the room and... More

We've always eaten at The Central since 2001 and never been disappointed. Friendly and attentive staff, great atmosphere -- Serge made us feel at home and was very welcoming last night and to-day. Linda and George.

We ended up lunching here as it had proved tricky to find something quick, light and economic in Bruges. We wanted to sit outside but not eat too much, nor spend a fortune. In the end the food was ok but the service was brusque and amateurish. For both started and main in the economy lunch (€14) we were handed... More

We stayed for 2 nights and yes the rooms are really basics but confortable. The staff are very friendly and always had the time to chat with us. We had lunch and found the food nice and good price. We really enjoyed to be seating next to open fire. Overhall, good location and easy to be in and out which... More
