We stayed at this hotel in a group of ten. I was disappointed by the overall standard of the rooms - they were extremely small and cramped and had a smell reminiscent of old drains. The bathroom was tiny and in fact my partner knocked the handle of the shower everytime he went in so that it shot out extremely... More

This place is certainly something different. We stayed here for a long weekend as a party of 10 taking up 5 rooms including one of the "Officers" cabins. Anchored just off the ring road close to the railway station, the hotel has limited roadside parking and is about a 20 minute walk from the centre of the city. The rooms... More

This is an ideal place to stay if you're happy to walk 10-15 mins into the centre of Bruges (It's a very pleasant walk through the park or along the canal) and if you're looking for good value. A very quiet location, clean rooms, good breakfast and wonderful staff. A very enjoyable stay all round and I would highly recommend... More

Very impressed with this small Hotel which is a converted barge. We arrived mid afternoon and checked in straight away with no hassles. Staff were friendly and helpful. Our room/Cabin was actually bigger than we were expecting bearing in mind the other reviews. The room was clean, comfortable and well appointed with plenty of storage space. It had a good... More

We stayed for one night at De Barge, after one night 30 years ago. We like the hotel for its setting on the canal and ten minute walk into Bruges: not only that but it is quick and easy to drive to from the motorway. We arrived early but the staff were helpful and got to our room soon. There... More

we wanted something with parking - free right next to hotel. the walk into town was very easy through park, we tried bus once, but took longer than walking as there were road works and you had to get off one bus and on another (no.12 from across road - should go to markt place). there were some nice restaurants...

We enjoyed our stay at this quirky hotel. It has a nice continental breakfast and an excellent restaurant that had some great specials (I had the osso bucco). We had one small problem with the lights not working properly, but it was a simple fuse problem and the friendly staff immediately responded and fixed it. We had concerns that maybe... More

This cute little hotel is about a 10-minute walk from the train, and the same 10 minute walk gets you into town. One previous review said "odd location", but I think this is the closest you can get to the train if you don't have a car. The map that displayed on the page today is incorrect - the hotel... More

This is a lovely unique hotel. One side faces the canal the other onto the car park which is mainly coaches but great for us as we could park right outside hotel for free. The cabins are small but very comfortable and perfectly adequate. Breakfast is plentiful with a good choice. To get to the town is only about 10... More
