This is a little calm hotel very well placed in Brugge just a few steps away from the market and bell tower. The staff is great.. Kind and patient. The rooms are lovely and comfortable and the breakfast was pretty good.. Great choice. Definitely would come back.

The first thing you need to know is: Bruges is awesome! We booked 2 nights here, and decided that we needed to stay 1 more night. When we checked in, we were informed that we would need to switch rooms after the first night because something was broken in the room we were going to stay in. The first night,... More

We spent last weekend in Brugge, at the Hotel Botaniek, and we had a great time Mostly due to the advice & kind consideration shown to us by the Management, particularly Veronica, who went out of her way to make sure we had everything we needed. This Hotel is a period building with nice modern touches and very centrally located.... More

This is your basic old hotel - more like a glorified bed-and-breakfast - that oozes charm. The furnishings are old (and my double bed was really two twins pushed together) but pretty. The ground-floor breakfast and sitting rooms are lovely. You'll probably need a map to find the place the first time, but once you orient yourself you should have... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Hotel Botaniek*** is an 18th Century Mansion elegantly renovated into a charming hotel The Hotel is situated right in the very center of historic Bruges. While located conveniently in the heart of the city. We are very well know for our tranquil atmosphere, which makes the Botaniek*** an ideal Hotel especially after a busy sightseeing day. We are located on a very quiet street only 50 meters from Bruges picturesque and romantic canals. We are also only a few minutes walking distance from the Main-Square, “Burg” and “Market”. There is no better place than the Hotel Botaniek. An ideal starting point from which to discover first-hand the “Venice of the North”. The hotel Botaniek*** is complete with a breakfast room that has been tastefully decorated by the owner, and a quiet sitting room with furniture reminiscent of the Louis XV era. There are only 3 rooms on each floor and each floor may be reached via the elevator. The top floor offers several unique and panoramic views of Bruges and it's wonderful architecture this includes the Church of Our Lady, Botaniek Park, the Belfry Tower and of course a roof top view of the beautiful houses in the neighbourhood. ... more   less
