That just about sums the place up. Hotel was spotless in all areas. Breakfast was the usual continental affair. i emailed the hotel the night before to arrange a taxi pick up from the train station, and Johan replied straight away with conformation that a cab will there. definitely recommend.

Booked in advance and travelled with Ryan Air meaning we came to Charleroi Airport we arrived there at 10.15 came out of the airport and got a shuttle bus all the way to Brugges for 42 euros for two one way, it did take 2 hours but was a cheap way to travel! The Hotel staff were very pleasant and... More

The hotel is in a great location.. Far enough away from the main square to be situated on the quieter streets but only a 10 minute walk to everything you need. Service however was a bit questionable. The lady who checked us in was lovely but after that we were met with abruptness and just plain rudeness. It was as... More

The hotel recommended local restaurants which were all very good. Room was good, beds comfortable, nice bathroom and shower. Lots of choice at breakfast with boiled eggs, cold meats and cheese and plenty of... More

We booked months in advance to visit the christmas markets. Unfortunately due to the Belgian train strike we didn't make it the first night of our booking. We were prepared we would have to pay anyway. However, when we did arrive the next morning when the trains were running again, we were shocked to be told we were not allowed... More

We stayed at the Jacobs Hotel this weekend, sadly for one night only. With the help of a parking permit (which had to be adjusted every 4 hours) we parked free for the weekend right outside the hotel. The hotel was very pleasant, and good value in a relatively expensive city. The room we were in was small, and would... More

A small hotel about a 10 minute walk from the main market square. The room was a good size and clean. The tv was fixed to the wall and not on a flexible arm mount so viewing was awkward. The breakfast was good with a plentiful choice. Staff on the whole were helpful but not always well informed about attractions.... More

Stayed here Nov 20th to the 22nd. Our room was clean and had everything we needed. The staff were very friendly and answered all our questions very well. The breakfast was good for us, they had cold meats, cheese, eggs, toast, cereals, pancakes, etc. The hotel is a five minute walk to the main square but it is in a... More

well! where do I begin? I stayed here with three friends assuring them that this was a charming, cosy,typical example of a family run Belgian hotel and they would surely like it so much they would definitely come back with their wives! Oh dear, not a cat in hells chance. I first stayed here in 1979 and was stunned with... More

The hotel is simple & clean, staff are pleasant and the variety offered at Breakfast was good. The Hotel is in a great place, in a quiet street to the North of Old Bruges and a great base to see Bruges - the various short walks that can be taken into the town offer a variety of perspectives on Bruges,...
