It was a neat place, staying right on the river. it was cozy. The Wifi did not work in room. The breakfast was really good. The staff was ok, not rude but not very helpful, they did not want to be bothered. Other than that, nice place to stay, 15 minutes walk to city center and free parking

The hotel is on a boat and thus the rooms are not very large. However, the interior has a (slightly shabby) charme and everything is very clean. The breakfast is solid and the people working there were all very helpful (in english and german). Some of the rooms look out to a large parking lot for tourist buses, the other... More

Had a great stay at this hotel with a difference! Was great to watch the barges go by on the canal. The free breakfast in the morning was wonderful and just what we need to start the day exploring. It was especially good as everything in Bruges is expensive... The location was a very short walk to the central railway... More

We booked on Booking.com for a reduced rate to that advertised on the official website. The hotel has a novelty feel and was fun to stay at, it is located with about a 10minute walk from the centre of Brugges through parkland and riverside paths, and it also has the bonus of free parking by the boat. The room was... More

Just spent a lovely weekend in Bruges with my wife and friends, we stayed at the De Barge Boat hotel, pretty much ticked all the boxes. We drove over on Friday night, Sat Nav took us straight there, free easy parking next to the coach park. Easy check in, cosy nautical themed rooms. Easy 15 min walk into the centre,... More

This hotel on a converted barge on the peaceful waters of the peripheral canal is a real treasure. Just 10 minutes walk across Minniewater Park to the chocolate, beer and lace delights of this very pleasant city. The 'cabins' are surprisingly roomy and very cosy, even on the coldest day. The pleasure of having ever hungry ducks as your alarm... More

Convenient for the centre of Bruges (10 minute walk), we liked the room which faced onto the canal and was very quiet. The breakfast was a comprehensive buffet and there was something that suited each one of the four of us. On the down side the staff were perfectly polite but not especially friendly. The bed in our room wasn't... More

Positives: The hotel is very easy to find and has free parking available (city centre hotels this is hit and miss – and chargeable). The room was clean and comfortable – as was the bathroom – and a view over water is always a treat (ask when booking for a canal view). Staff are courteous and helpful. The breakfast (included)...
