Just back from a four night trip to Bruges over New Year's Eve. This was my fourth visit and as expected, Bruges was fantastic. New Year's Eve was fun. I have stayed at the Navarra before and really liked it hence the second visit. But this time our room was in the annex and this was not great, a real disappointment in fact, it felt like we had been short changed. Though it was clean and a decent size it was very noisy, not counting NYE which is to be expected. The strange, very loud buzzer on the front door was very annoying as where the noisy stairs. We were in room 11 on the ground floors which felt every exposed, if you had the curtains open and the light on as it was dark, you needed them on all the time you had to keep the curtains closed or you felt you were on show. My husband nicknamed it 'the bunker'. There were also three ant traps in the bathroom, not very appealing at all. We booked via Alpha-rooms but not on any deal so don't know if that makes a difference and it seemed to be only Brits in the annex, maybe just a coincidence.
On the plus side, the hotel is in a super location, the staff are very cheerful and helpful, the breakfast is fabulous and the building is beautiful.
The bar was also really lacking in atmosphere which I don't remember from our previous visits, so all in all not terrible but I will pick another hotel for our next visit to bruges.
