“Impossible to park”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 9, 2013 via mobile

Spent just one night is this hotel. As we arrived by car we did not find the hotel entrance. From any of the streets - there are 2 possible entrances - you DO NOT see the lobby, cause there's a courtyard and you have to let the car by the sidewalk and beg for someone to help you with the luggage (and there's nobody!). Instead, they offer carts (50cents!) for you to return alone to the car and solve your own problem at all... (And i'm a silver "le club" member...imagine if not...) The hotel has a modern lobby but the rooms are VERY simple, no more than a 2 STAR ordinary hotel, looks a Franciscan room. As a "le club" member i try to be at accor hotels and this was the worst, in many ways. Last september we were at a same flag hotel (novotel) in NYC and it was very good. But novotel brugges... Better try something different in this lovely city.

We spent a weekend in Bruges, which is an amazing place... The hotel was clean, rooms were of a decent size, nothing was particularly exceptional. Staff were friendly as you would expect in any Novotel. I would stay there again if going to Bruges as the location was very good.

Could not fault this hotel at all. Rate was so good. Location was just ideal. Rooms were very clean and spacious. Staff were lovely very welcoming. Breakfast was just perfect. The smoothie was just yummy.
Would definitely stay there again if in Bruges.
I bet it's even better in the summer when the pool is open!

Stayed there for three days in Jan, 2013 on business trip. Very good location of the hotel. In is in the old town city with just few minutes of walk from the central square. The parking (city parking) is just under the hotel. Staff was very nice and hospital. Breakfast - ok.
There is a free wifi in the room and the cable with the fast internet. Wifi is upto 512Kbps......
So at the end I used cable with extra paid internet, though my colleagues said wifi was ok for their iPads.
Oh, by the way: very good sleep.
Rooms are spacious, comfortable, well cleaned and causy.
Thanks for a nice stay!

A 10 minute walk from the station ( arrived by Eurostar) and close to all the main attractions but tucked away in a quiet square. A good hotel and excellently priced package with Eurostar. Spacious, clean room, comfortable bed and enjoyable stay. Friendly helpful staff. Would definitely recommend.

Room Tip: My room was at the end of the corridor so probably quieter as not so much footfall. Room overlooked...

Good central location just a few minutes from the markt. Convenient car park underground 8.70euros for 24hours. Nice welcome, good sized room, comfy bed. Bathroom basic but what's required. Struggled to work the shower but called reception and someone came very quickly and sorted it out. Restaurant was very quiet. Nice menu, very tasty and well presented and served. Breakfast consisted of buffet to help yourself. Vast choice including continental and full English.

Would stay again and recommend.
