“Great for a weekend stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 18, 2013

Was hard to find anything negative to say. Location great very near Market Square.Staff were polite, helpful and knowledgeable of the area. Breakfast was excellent with so much choice there was something for everyone. Loved the jazz in the bar. Our room was quite a way from reception with several small flights of stairs so if anyone had a mobility issue I would check room location on booking. Room was a little smaller than hoped but was of a high standard which I think is much more important.
No hesitation in recommending.

Absolutely loved everything about this hotel. Great location, really helpful staff and a wonderful room.

The hotel is situated within minutes from the Markt Square, lots of restaurants near by and the staff were very helpful with directions and information. Breakfast was fab, lots of variety and the bar is lovely, especially with the live music and cocktails!

Will defiantly be back!

Had two nights at the Navarra in early September, and found it better than previous hotels we have stayed in when visiting Bruges. The room (on the second floor) was very comfortable, but could have been bigger in the main part (somewhat cramped in the area where the chairs/TV were located) - although the bathroom was very roomy. Bed was very comfortable, but the TV seemed to have a mind of its own - not an issue, really, but I do like to tune in to the news, if possible. Reception staff were courteous and extremely helpful; breakfast was copious and of very good quality, although tables were, in parts, closer together than would be ideal. The hotel benefits from a good location and met our needs well.

The locals say that Hotel Navarra is one of the best hotels in Bruges so we had high expectations on arrival. It was good, but not that good!!! It is however, in a fab location just a few mins walk to Markt Square and is a great base for exploring the area.

The hotel itself was clean, well presented and an attempt has been made to make it appear modern inside. Our room was on the top floor which would have afforded us a lovely view of the city if we hadn't been looking out over rooftops and guttering! With a large bed and a decent sized bathroom it really was everything we needed it to be for the kind of trip we had planned. The only real downside was the way the internal plumbing is connected meant that our loo constantly made noises all night which was obviously as a result of others being used throughout the hotel.

Breakfast is served buffet style with a good selection of cereals, breads, cakes, cheeses, meats etc along with a choice of bacon, sausages, beans and scrambled or boiled eggs. Unless you arrive early, the restaurant does tend run out of items such as cheese/ham/eggs and the staff can be slow to replenish.

We booked this hotel using an airmiles promotion so would have been disappointed if we had paid full price but having said that, it would't put us off staying again or recommending it to others.

We stayed at the Navarra for 3 nights early September. The first room we had was at the top of the hotel and far too hot, even with the air conditioning running. The a/c unit was right next to the bed which meant my head was frozen and my eye lids stuck together! I asked to be moved the following morning and we were given a garden room. This was much more comfortable temperature wise but the shower was awful. The water pressure was negligent and the temperature regulation was awful - which meant a scalding on a couple of occasions. Having already complained about the first room, we stuck with it but its really not good enough for a 4 star.

The room wss definately not as big as we had expected from the pictures or the price, it was a very boxy corner room but very clean a nice double bed. The fantastic points of the hotel are the location, your right in the market square within a minute and the gym/pool was empty every time we went. Eating so much rich food while on holiday it was great having the option to go for a swim.

This was our third time staying at the Hotel Navarra in Bruges.

The hotel is clean and comfortable, and is only a 5 minute walk (maximum) to the main Markt.

Our room was quite small although generally sufficient, but we could hear the rooms above flushing their toilets and emptying baths/sinks etc; which continued through the night and wasn't too pleasant. The soil and vent pipe to these rooms must have run down the internal section of our room, hence the noise. The bathroom window sashes were also fixed shut due to the air conditioning, and there was a lack of ventilation in this area, which was not really acceptable in a 4* hotel.

The staff were very pleasant though, including reception, bar and housekeeping. The quality of the breakfast was reasonable; although some items such as the boiled eggs were not replaced swiftly enough (with more than half an hour left of service).

All in all a good hotel, which we would still recommend; but we may try somewhere else for our next trip to Bruges just to form a comparison opinion..
