Just returned from a 2 night stay. This was booked as a Eurostar package through Expedia at a very competitive price.
Fantastic short break - Bruges is stunning with the location of the Pand being perfect - as per other reviews, right in the heart but still tucked away discretely. We arrived by rail into Bruges station which is just a Euro 7 taxi ride away so we are unable to comment on parking arrangements.
With the nature of the architecture, the Pand Hotel is a converted 18th century carriage house and consequently the stairwells are spiral and narrow, along with any elevators which only hold 2 people at a time + a small amount of luggage but this adds to the whole quirkiness and character of the property, so don't expect modern, minimalist interiors. I am sure every room is different and richly decorated.
We stayed in a Ralph Lauren suite (Room 108) which faced over the front of the hotel. The room itself was large and comfortable and adorned in a shabby chic style which may not be to everyone's taste but we certainly enjoyed it. We had a great 4 poster bed, albeit, we found it slightly on the firm side but this is a very personal and varied issue for most people but for a 2 night stay, it was fine.
The bathroom was modern with a jacuzzi bath, slightly on the small side as the shower cubicle adjoined the toilet cubicle but with limited space, you can see that the design was trying to make best use of the space available to give all the modern conveniences and we felt it is a small compromise to make.
This is a small boutique hotel (26 rooms I believe) with the focus being on service by the delightful front desk members. They are very informative with maps/suggestions, dinner recommendations and anything else that you might want to make your stay comfortable.
We didn't take the breakfast option when we stayed but the dining area is certainly delightful adjoined by a very small courtyard area. The other public lounge and bar areas are cosy and beautifully laid out.
Minibar charges in the room seem reasonable - we only had a couple of coke's which were Euro3 each. There is a small limited room service options available which we were pleasantly surprised with considering this was a small hotel.
Overall a fabulous stay and would recommend the Pand for a short break.
