“Perfect for a City Break”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2013

Very comfortable & clean. We took a taxi from the train station to get there as it was night & raining, cost just €9, but we walked it to go back to the station & was a good 10-15min walk. Only 15min walk from the main Market Square, but lots of other sights to see close by.

Just had a 2 night stay at the ibis centrum in Bruges stayed Tues,Wed,and could not fault it ,We were put in a lower floor room which i understand are the smokers rooms. We don't smoke the but they didn't really smell of smoking. There was an odour in the reception area due to the level of the canals which we were told there was nothing they could do about the smell . There was an odour in the bathroom same as the reception which we complained about and we were offered a move to a different room on a different floor there was no smell at all .
The staff were very helpful very friendly .
The rooms are a good size bathrooms clean the beds are amazing so so comfortable,we didn't have breakfast at the hotel we thought it too expensive. There are lots of cafes very close to the hotel that do very good food ,The only food we ate at the hotel was a pizza and that was very good .the 1 place that i would recommend to eat is BHAVANI Indian cuisine totally outstanding food .
Would i recommend this hotel yes i would its central to all the main attractions. We found everything a little cheaper in this area as prices were a lot higher in the center.
A kettle in the room would be a useful addition.

The Ibis in Brugge was very nice. I always enjoy staying with the Ibis franchise. The staff was very friendly, helpful and spoke English. Obviously there are closer "boutique" hotels, but this was a great value, and we were very close to all of the attractions we wanted to see. It was far enough away, that it was quiet at night. We did not have breakfast, because we were in the heart of the city, and there was a fantastic cafe down the street that was cheaper for us. My only complaint was that we were on the ground floor (I'd consider it a half floor lower than the ground floor actually), and when we walked into the corridor, there was a terrible stench. I think it was coming from the boiler room or water heater, because it smelled a bit like sulfur. It didn't smell in our room, but the air was thick in our room (if that makes sense?), so if you can, avoid the rooms on the ground floor.

Room Tip: Avoid the ground floor rooms due to that "basement" feeling and air.

Nice hotel that is well situated in the centre of Bruges. Avoid breakfast as it is very expensive for an IBIS hotel. There is a nice café across the road from the hotel which is very pleasant and reasonably priced.

The hotel is an ideal location for the city and is situated on a lovely old street a few minutes walk away from the church of our lady. Can't comment on the food in the hotel as we didn't eat there however the breakfast was expensive even for Bruges. The staff were not very friendly quite abrupt. The rooms were clean and had most things you needed, however I would take a travel kettle if you are there for a few days as there are no amenities in the room and tea/coffee is quite expensive in the city. There is an hairdryer in the bathroom but not very good I believe you can request one from reception. The rooms are stuffy but the air conditioning didn't work and it is very noisy if you open the windows. The beds were comfortable and bedding clean.

Room Tip: take a travel kettle and hair dryer

I have just returned home from a long weekend in Brugge with my wife and two friends, and stayed at this hotel.
I am a regular user of the Ibis hotel chain, and this was a natural choice for our first visit to the area.
The hotel is situated right in the heart of the city, which is ideal.
Parking is adjacent to the hotel and competitively priced for the location.
I found the staff friendly and helpful, serving our needs more than adequately.
The rates were reasonable taking into consideration it's location.
Breakfast was up to Ibis standard but a little expensive when compared to recent stays at other Ibis hotels in France, Holland and Germany.
We all enjoyed our weekend in Brugge and the Ibis was a good choice of hotel.
If there is a criticism to make it would be that the hotel rooms are in need of an Ibis modernization.
The rooms were smaller than in other Ibis hotels that I have recently stayed, and lacked the usual high standard room plan, and storage facilities.
On the positive side, the bed was very comfortable, which allowed for a good nights sleep after long days out on the town.
A good hotel, well worth consideration.
