Very friendly staff, perfect location. Only about 100 yards from downtown Brugge. Good breakfast and many options, even included fresh squeezed orange juice! Comfortable beds and nice garden in the back, available for guest to hang out it. Free fast wi-fi and reserved parking ( must be paid for).

Dear Guest, Thank you so much for having taken the time to write this great review and having given us the wonderful ***** ranking. It really means a lot to us. We will most certainly will look into the change of pressure / temp of the water. Most probably due to the works at that time in the next-door building... More

This is a lovely small Hotel/Guest house very well located close to the main square. There are 2 excellent Restaurants within metres of the Hotel. The breakfasts were very fresh with very good attention to detail. Veronica, the owner, was very friendly & helpful. I would stay there again in a heartbeat. Highly recommended. Tony O.

The hotel is located very close to the centre of Bruge's Markt. It is small and has a homely feel. Our room, on the first floor, was tastefully decorated in muted greens and pinks and overlooked the pretty courtyard garden. The bed was one of the most comfortable I have ever slept in. The owner, Veronica, could not have been... More

Hotel Alegria is well located near the centre of Brugge. Behind an unassuming door is a warm and welcoming hotel that provides all the comforts of home. Without being intrusive, Veronique's attention to detail ensures that all is well. Her breakfasts, from the freshly squeezed orange juice, to the individually cooked eggs to the divine bread, pastries and hot coffee... More

We really enjoyed our stay at the Alegria and in Bruges. Veronique is very proud of her home city and justifiably so. There is not much she does not know and is willing to share her knowledge and some family experiences. She personally prepares and serves the best continental breakfast we have seen. Everything fresh and appetising. The room, and... More

This was our second stay in Bruges but our first at hotel Alegria. We were warmly welcomed by Veronique and her mother and given lots of useful information about the town and places to see. We were kindly offered help with our luggage which doesn't seem to happen much these days! Our room was on the first floor and overlooked... More

This hotel was in a perfect location on a small street close to the main square. The room was very comfortable and had a cottage-like flair to it. I was absolutely impressed on how kind the hotel owner was. The breakfast was also AMAZING. Wouldn't mind revisting charming Brugge and this hotel!

I can't say enough about this "hotel". I wouldn't even call this a hotel because it was so personal it felt like a bed and breakfast. Everything about it was wonderful. The location couldn't have been better. The entire room was beautiful and clean. The view was lovely. The owner was kind and helpful. My stay felt so personal. I... More
