Ok value in a great location. Just sleeping quarters--if you can sleep. Here's the biggest issue--it is 56 degrees at night. After a warm 78 degree day and no A/C in the rooms, it can get stuffy. So you open the lovely ceiling to floor windows for some cool crisp Belgium night air. Perfect sleeping conditions, right? Wrong. The bar... More

Few blocks from downtown. Perfect to stand one or two nights (it´s what you need in Brugge). Good staff and breakfast. No luxury in rooms. Just the basic and necessary. No TV. But the location it´s perfect. Need of everything you need. Enjoy.

I stayed there in July (2012). The room was small with damp, old carpet. The toilet was small- which was also carpet. I felt that I couldn't walk bear feet. The shower was tiny, I was hardly able to move. The staff members were rude and unfriendly. I would not advise anyone to stay at this hotel. My stay at... More

Shared a triple with my Mum & brother for a weekend in Brugge, this place is so close to everything, it's unreal. Pretty basic rooms but you're hardly in it and the beds are very comfy. Was only 90 euro a night. The perfect base to explore a truly wonderful city

Stayed for one night in this hotel and it was fine - quite basic rooms but clean and comfortable. I understand that it is to be refurbished soon, and to be fair, a lick of paint wouldn't go amiss, but for the money, and for the location, right in the town centre, it offered very good value. There is a... More

We traveled for 3 1/2 weeks throughout Europe in September/October 2011 and stayed in mainly b&b's. This hotel is the perfect location--right off the main square. When we visited Brugge it was a "car free" day which was great as they had a concert in the square, carnival and many other things going on to celebrate people getting out and... More

This hotel is perfect. Excellent location, right in the centre of Bruges, and very inexpensive. We had a room with beautiful view of the belfry tower. Rooms arent the most modern but they are just fine and clean. Staff very friendly and helpful! Breakfast was nice and varied. There is no reason not to stay here.

This hotel is in a very good location, just a couple of minutes from the main square. The breakfast had a good selection of cold buffet items. The staff were very friendly, and went out of their way to help.The rooms were clean and tidy, although I have to say carpeted bathrooms are quite unusual.

Good place to stay in the very heart of Brugge at a reasonable price. Free WiFi, clean rooms. The place has two stars which is appropriate. Due to proximity to the "party scene" of Bruges (which is tiny) it might get loud on the street during nights. I recommend it for young people!
