“Value Priced and Close to the Best of Brugge”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 28, 2013

Enjoyed 3 days at the Novotel Brugge. Rooms are modern, clean and spacious. Far enough from town center as to be quiet, but only a short walk to the best that Brugge has to offer. Great breakfast is included. Worth a regular visit.

Room Tip: Rooms not facing the courtyard are a bit quieter but the view from courtyard rooms is out of this wo...

The good thing about a Novotel is that you know exactly what you're getting. It is a nice, clean hotel in a good location - half mile from the train station and about half a mile from Markt. Our room was spacious and had a sofabed and bed. I had a cracking night's sleep as well - and isn't that what it is mostly about?

The highlight was the staff. We had interacted with a number of them and they were all super-nice. They tried their best to make our stay relaxing and pleasant. I cannot say enough about how great they are.

The lowlight was the coffee. While the bartender was really nice, the coffee was appalling. That is because they don't use a real espresso machine - not the bartender's fault. However, who chooses a hotel base on coffee when there a gazillion cafes within a mile from the hotel? You can tell I am struggling to find fault.

My top tip is to skip the hotel breakfast. There are a heap of cute cafes in the area which will do a better breakfast for half the price.

Very nice and quiet hotel in a good location. Good breakfast with wide range of food but expensive. Ideally located near the ring of Brugge and unexpensive garage near by. Only five minutes walk from the city center.

this hotel and its sister hotel the Ibis are centrally located about 1/2 mile from the train station and no more than 1/2 mile from the principal sites in Brugge. The rooms are comfortable, modern and upto date - they are more Ikea than Ritz but I hope you are not going to Brugge to spend time in your room when there is so much to see. One of the nice things about Novotel hotels is that they are reliable - everything works as it should. There is free wifi with a fast connection. The breakfast includes fresh squeezed orange juice plus a large assortment of eggs, breads, cheese, meats, fruits etc. The Ibis group often is not on hotel web sites but their rooms usually are a bit spartan but at a lower cost

I've stayed here with a group of friends.The hotel is very spacious,large lobby, private underground parking,large triple room with an extensible sofa,free wifi,hair dryer.
The hotel is at about 5-7minutes walk from the old city centre.
The stuff is very friendly and helpful.
Right in front of the hotel, in the same yard, is the Ibis Hotel.
The town is absolutely lovely with its canals,old buildings, little streets, chocolate boutiques.
I definitely recommend to visit Brugge and to stay at Novotel Hotel.

The Novotel Brugge Centrum has a great location near the centeral market square; has parking underground (for a fee) and has an extremely helpful and enjoyable front desk and bar staff. Food in the restaurant is very good. Breakfast is more than you will get on the outside. Within walking distance to the train station. Scenery around the hotel is breath-taking!

Room Tip: All rooms are good!
