“Great location in a lovely town”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2012

A belated review. We spent a night in early July 2012. The hotel is probably a three star but no more. The room was very large with tired furniture. It was quiet (despite being a Saturday night), it had a quiet working Air Conditionning system, a super toilet with large bath-shower (very clean), a small fridge, and a decent TV. Despite having such super large room; the beds were the usual width as double but extra long while they could have had a King Size bed. There was no bed head as the bed contacted directly the wall giving the room a cheap look: this could be fixed so easily (you lost points here).

Breakfast was simple despite the fact that we learned that I could have had eggs, bacon and other warm choices... as another customer ordered it later... bummer. With only a max of one croissant per customer; I felt that the owner was rather "Cheap".

The town of Delft is absolutely lovely... We will go back again. Do the canal cruise as it is charming and a real good value for money... it is just a block or two away. For supper, we found a fantastic restaurant with a huge covered garden terrasse named Eet & Proeflokaal de Kurk on Kromstraat 20 (www.dekurk.nl).

The hotel is near the train station (note that it is under renovation and the large street in front is an awfull mess). Don't bother for a taxi.

Room Tip: Use google map with actual satellite picture... it makes finding easier given names of street change...

I stayed at this hotel for five nights during a trip to TU Delft as a visiting researcher. Because I was staying for a few days, they gave me a cute little self-contained apartment instead of a room which was incredibly convenient. The owner, Jan Willem, and the staff were helpful, friendly and hospitable. The location of this hotel is perfect for those who want to explore Delft. It was also only a 25 minute walk to the university. The only aspect which can be improved is the lighting; it was quite dim. If I visit Delft again, I'd definitely consider staying here again.

Rooms were great with a wonderful big ensuite bathroom. Staff was extremely helpful and very, very nice. The location was perfect for walking to the market square and not that far of a walk from the train station (which was slightly confusing due to the renovation of the whole station). Very enjoyable visit.

This is a nicely maintained, classic small European hotel, overlooking a canal in Delft. Our room was small, but clean and comfortable. The proprietor was friendly and caring.

The only negative was the yelling and party sounds of young people in the streets around the hotel at various points during the hours between 2 am and 5 am. Delft is apparently a college town and the students were definitely out in party force during our stay. Overall we chalked this up to part of the local experience.

Parking was moderately convenient as we were able to drop off our luggage and then park in a public garage within walking distance.

The classic parts of Delft that tourists will want to visit represent a relatively small area and all of it is within easy walking distance from the Bridges House Hotel.

The continental breakfast was tastefully done in the small lobby. In contrast to the previously mentioned behavior of the local student population, we very much enjoyed speaking with the local college age students employed by the Hotel during our breakfasts.

The Bridges is mis-identified as a three star. It is two star and might work out fine for readers except it is at a four star price. Terrible continental breakfast and a push bottom coffee maker. Our room was big that is true but with beat up furniture and a dismal lighting. It is close to the train station and the general staff was cordial though the manager refused to help my 67 year old husband carry his bag to the room.

Room Tip: Look elsewhere

This is a good, small, owner-run hotel in the heart of Delft less than 10 minutes walk from the train station. This is an old building and many of the rooms are different; this is my second time staying and I was 100% satisfied.

First the building and the rooms. The building is located on the Oude Delft, one of the prettiest canals in Delft. Supposedly it was the home of Jan Steen, one of the great Dutch genre painters from the Golden Age (you can see his paintings in the Mauritshus in the Hague -- a must -- and the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam). It is located about two blocks walk from the main center of the town where the City Hall and the "new" church are located. The rooms are modern, clean and have excellent bathroom facilities. The bedding is good and comfortable. I had no problem with the WiFi, although it could be slow at times. As many of the reviewers commented, the stairs (especially to the third floor) are very steep and their is no elevator, so plan appropriately. If you can't handle too many stairs, try a room on the first floor (second floor in the US).

Second the service -- this is a small, privately owned hotel and is not a full service business hotel. The owner manages the property and is there everyday, but he locks the doors at 11pm so DO NOT FORGET your keys or you will have to find somewhere else to sleep. But remember it is a small hotel and you cannot expect it to be open 24 hours like a Holiday Inn. The owner is well informed and very kind. Also, the maids are only available from 11am to 2pm, so if you want your room made make sure you are out of the room during that time or let them know when you will be out of the room.

For me, breakfast is PERFECT -- fresh croissant and rolls, meats and cheeses, cereals, OJ, mike, coffee or tea. Really lovely and the staff work hard to make you comfortable. Plus there is free coffee, cappuccino or tea all day in the lobby. While there seems to be a few nice options for small hotels in Delft, I think I'll keep coming back.

PS Two great beer pubs -- Locus Publicus (http://www.locuspublicus.nl/) and t'Klooster (http://www.trappistenlokaal.nl/)

Room Tip: Rooms in the front have a nice canal view. Rooms in the back are quiter, but look over rooftops out...
