I first stayed at De Barge back in the late 80's when I lived in Germany. My wife and I recently travelled to Brugge and I took advantage of the chance to stay there again. I was not disappointed. The advantage that De Barge has is its uniqueness. A converted grain barge, moored to the side of the canal, it... More

We stayed on the Barge two or three years ago and enjoyed it so much we decided to make it stopover for our motorbike trip from Norway back to the UK. As previously the experience was a good one and I'd recommend it if only for the novelty value! However, we chose the same room as before (an end room,... More

First timers in Bruges and this was quirky and fun! Only 15 minutes walk through a lovely park and you are in the beautiful city. (I'm walking with a stick following surgery and it really is an easy walk!). Free parking, friendly welcome, tasteful decor, spotlessly clean cabin and bathroom. Love the extra touch of the life jackets on the... More

The hotel is easy to find on the outskirts of Bruges. It is next to a coach/car park but once inside this is not an issue. There is parking outside on the street which was convenient and free. This is not a place to stay if you cannot negotiate steps or stairs! The rooms are on the small side and... More

This is our second time at de barge. Canal side view was ok, more noisy than the onshore side it is on a working canal. Yes rooms are small, you wouldn't live in it at home but its perfectly acceptable as a holiday room. Everything was clean/tidy, there was some painting work outside but it started after 9 and finished... More

De Barge Hotel was a very exciting prospect, near to Bruges centre (15 minute walk), and on a Boat on a canal- wow, unfortunately the novelty ran out pretty quickly. We arrived quite early, and to thw hotels benefit we were allowed to put our luggage in a not secure lounge. The receptionist who we talked with could do with... More

Stayed here 2 nights in 2 double rooms. The hotel was on a barge and very well decorated and laid out. Very good breakfast and very handy for parking as Bruges is understandably awkward for this. Small negatives were: 1) Rooms on the small side 2) One our rooms wan not cleaned.

A bit of a let down unfortunately, we had a very poor view from our window of the car park, with some sort of building work and scaffolding immediately outside our window. Despite it being a double room we had separate single duvets on our double bed - hardly romantic. Although the bathroom is cleverly fitted into the room with... More

Had a great 3 nights stay here. The place has a lot of atmosphere. This is a must for anyone who has always wanted to stay on a barge. Almost converted to the idea of living on one! The rooms are small cabin size with a clean bathroom. We had rooms 9&11 which do not have a view of the... More

The staff are very friendly and welcoming. The room is small (as expected) but comfortable - there was a nice canal view. Wifi worked well. Walking distance to the train station. Restaurant is really nice - definitely worth eating at. I would recommend this hotel to others. Unfortunately there is no air-conditioning so the room was quite warm.
