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

When I arrived at the Botakiek Hotel, the owners informed me that they had only owned it for a week. Well, they are off to a good start. There are only 9 rooms, so you get a lot of attention and personal service from the owners, a friendly husband and wife team. The husband is a chef and bakes the... More

We stayed at this hotel for 3 nights in January 2014. The hotel is located just in the center, 5 mins walk to Markt. The breakfast is good. The rooms are clean and nicely decorated. We read in the forum that room no 9 has a great wiew and asked for that room at the time of reservation. I'm glad... More

Two important things in a hotel. Good shower and comfy bed. This place has both. The hotel is a little tired but the staff are very welcoming and helpful. Great central location and the views from the top floor are lovely. For the price this hotel is good value.

The hotel is ideally located in a quiet street, just a milestone away from the historical center of Brugge and the rooms and common areas are tastefully decorated, however, I haven't found the owner Andy to be particularly friendly and welcoming, since the other reviews for him are positive I might just have missed his better sides, or maybe it...

The owners were wonderful and made us feel very welcome, Andy helped us throughout with any queries we had. Hotel was cosy and breakfast good. The only negative we couldn't help ignore was that the room obviously hadn't been thoroughly cleaned before arrival, other people's belongings under bed, dirty cabinets in bedroom and bathroom and recent dirt on the sides...

Nice quiet and comfortable room; bathroom small but workable. Breakfast standard, nothing special. Host/owner was helpful and this was a wonderfully comfortable and restful place. Free wifi, which isn't all that common in parts of Europe. Recommended by Rick Steves.

The staff were great we arrived rather late (over 2 hours after closing) but as they called earlier to check our estimated arrival they were happy to stay up and wait for our arrival. The hotel was very easy to find and Andy the owner very friendly and helpful. The hotel itself is a nice converted house with about 9... More

We stayed here based on a recommendation from a family member. I was a little dubious - but my doubts were soon put to rest. The hotel is small - only about 9 rooms. Ours was on the top floor - and I strongly suggest using the elevator as the stairs are quite steep. But the views from the top... More
