Family run place, nice breakfast. Walkable into town but appeared to be plentiful buses although we walked everywhere. Good sized room. Owners very friendly, helpful and provided a map telling us of good places to visit.

Found this place on Booking.com and we weren't disappointed. Not in the centre but a 10 min stroll in which suited us. Parking was on street but easy. Owners couldn't do enough for you. Breakfast a small buffet but good and plentiful. House has loads of character. We paid €125 for a family room for 4 B&B which is great... More

We stayed in this lovely hotel for 3 nights for our anniversary. It's about a 10 minute walk from the main town centre. The room we booked was the small double, but it was bigger than we thought...the bed was lovely and comfortable and the shower was lovely and hot! The owners couldn't do enough to help...showing the best places... More

From the moment we stepped into this quaint hotel we knew we were in the right place! Hostess Fleur was so friendly and helpful. She took out a map immediately and showed us how to get around and recommended restaurants and sights to see. We had a room on the top floor so a lot of steps to climb. The... More

Tastefull decoration, good location, the owners are very helpful and friendly, delicious breakfast. There is no door in the shower so the bathroom can get a little wet but it's no big deal and a hair dryer would've been useful. Would definately stay there again and recommend to friends.

I was very lucky to get upgraded to a nicer double, so I don't know what the standard doubles are like. But our room was perfect, spacious and clean. Fleur was really nice, and the breakfast was a good continental. About 30 minutes walk from the train station, so a pretty good location as well.

It is a nice old building in the center of Bruges. The owner was very welcoming when we arrived and explained us where we can go and which restaurants and bars are best. We got an upgrade for free on our room and moved into a bigger room than the room we booked. Breakfast was awesome and the service there... More

Stayed here for 3 nights over new year with my girlfriend. It's a really lovely place that in some ways feels more like a guest house than a hotel, as the owners are often around, giving it their personal touch. The room was clean, the included breakfast is excellent and really sets you up for the day, and the extra... More

We recently spent 3 nights at Hotel Gulden Vlies in Bruges. For the price we paid per night which included a very decent breakfast we were very pleased overall with the hotel. The room we staying in was small and the bathroom tiny but we expected this as per the description on their webpage and the cost. The continental breakfast... More
