Loved this hotel!!! Not sure why it didnt get 5 green circles. Stayed here for a few nights, fabulous location, 5 mins from the big square, but just far enough to not be in the tourist circus with the tour guides and horse drawn carriages running you over when you leave the hotel. A good choice of places to eat... More

We had a very pleasant 3D2N stay at Hotel Martin's Relais. The triple room was very spacious and comfortable. The staff at the check in / check out were very efficient and friendly. Breakfast was generous and more than sufficient. We had the garden view. We just love the big windows, especially in the warm weather. The location is quiet,... More

We loved our stay here. Our room number was number 25 in the roof space (2nd floor), we had a decked (small) area to go out to, needed due to the heat, shame there wasn't a table & chair. The furniture & furnishings were lovely, fitting for a period hotel. We had bed & breakfast. The breakfast room was superb,... More

This is a boutique hotel filled with charm, elegance and, er, a parrot! The location is very good, a few minutes' walk from the main square in Bruges and next to the canal. A very peaceful setting for a quiet weekend away. A special mention has to go to the reception staff: after our airline misplaced our luggage, my girlfriend... More

We stayed in a superior room with canal room in this centrally located hotel. We were pleasantly surprised by the size of the room and the antique looking furniture - very comfortable. The staff were efficient and friendly, nothing was too much trouble. If you want ultra modern, don't stay here. This hotel is perfect for comfort, art appreciation and... More

We travelled to Brugge (or Bruges) via Eurostar and coach in a trip organised by Riveira Travel, in a party of ten, and I must say I have not enjoyed a break so much for a long time. The hotel check in was fast and efficient, and the rooms were excellent and comfy. The hotel bar was friendly with good... More

Great location with beautiful and spacious rooms. It is very centrally located -easy 5 minute walk to all the shops, restaurants and sights. It is overlooking a very quiet part of the canal. We bought a drink from the bar and took it outside and drank it sitting on the canal. The staff is a little stand off-ish but I... More

Dear Linda c, Thank you for taking the time to write this review on Tripadvisor. Actually it is our goal to create a “small hotel”-feeling, not only with our building and furniture, but also with the service provided. I am sorry to read you found our staff a little reserved. Off course not every guest appreciates such a personal or... More

This hotel is quite old and obviously fits into the location - it's quite charming and has individual rooms. We had a room overlooking the courtyard which was nice; apparently those overlooking the canal could be noisy as there is a cobble road on the canal-side too. The staff were very nice and friendly. The hotel itself is borderline tired... More
