If you want a big impersonal, overpriced hotel in a noisy city centre, where you are just a number and the maids don’t even clean under the beds properly, this is the WRONG hotel for you.
If you want a great value, intimate, spotlessly clean B&B, in a very quite residential area, with two charming and informative hosts (Paul & Benny)THIS IS IT.
My wife and I have stayed in Hotels all over the world, and this was one the cheapest, yet it had the highest standards of cleanliness. We choose a ‘Queen Studio’ in the Bariseele (Annex of the Hotel Fevery), which was a spacious mini-suite with a small kitchen area, at a bargain price (cheaper than most UK motels). Sink, fridge, kettle, microwave and toaster were provided. If you like a big greasy breakfast once again this is the WRONG HOTEL, but an ample Continental one is provided.
The hotel is a pretty 10 minute walk to the main market square and not far from everything else. The local area extremely quiet apart from the joy of being awoken by nearby church bells each morning. The bed mattress was very comfortable. A mini-bar (based on trust) was provided and as if by magic a full bottle of milk constantly appeared in the fridge for making Tea and Coffee.
Benny made us feel so very welcome and Paul kindly answered my endless questions about the best restaurants etc. This included Paul typing a complete set of instructions how to get to Ypres including all the bus/train times.
Bruges is the PERFECT destination for a long weekend, especially if you enjoy walking, sight-seeing and eating! Walking at night is very safe too. This is a near-perfect B&B.
We will be back.
Brits can combine this hotel with a cheap Eurostar deal (Bruges is just one hour from ‘Brussels Midi’ by train) and you can use it as a base to explore other cities such as Brussels, Gent, Antwerp and Ypres, which are all just an hour or less away by train.
