“Lovely”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2013

I stayed here on my first visit to Bruges, and I was pleasantly surprised. The staff were all extremely helpful and polite, the breakfast was good, and the rooms were clean and spacious. There is no restaurant in the hotel so you can only eat breakfasts there, but they do have a bar. However, as it is so central this is not a problem. Within a 5 minute radius of the hotel you will find plenty of restaurants to dine in, supermarkets, as well as two of the main city squares.
I only have two negative comments to make about this hotel; no free wifi, and substandard lifts.
Overall recommended. Cheap relative to what you get, good deal!

Perfect location - 2 min by walk to the central square, clean and cozy rooms, rich breakfast, helpful stuff. We've stayed in several hotels in Belgium, thus is the best for its price. Highly recommended!

We stayed in the beautiful city of Bruges at the Hans Memling Hotel.
This hotel is in a great location, minutes walk from the centre of Bruges.
However the rooms were very disappointing, shabby, low cost, poorly furnished, quite basic and not that cheap. Yes they did have a fridge and a telephone so I guess that is how they gained a three star but in all other respects the rooms were very poor. The carpets felt very old the drab walls were depressing, the bath enamel was chipped with no lock on the bathroom door, the door to the room hit the bed when you opened it, the floors squeaked and creaked endlessley and the furniture was the cheapest nastiest quality that could be found. The breakfast room was good and the continental breakfast was also good so no complaints there.

Room Tip: Don't go there.

First the positives: the hotel was fairly cheap, close to the main square. Now for the negatives: our room was incredibly noisy from traffic and people walking around in the room above us, they never seemed to stop. The window in our room would not fully close and the fan did not work. There was a hair on the toilet seat and numerous on the bathroom floor. The pillows were very strange and not at all adequate. If you come in after 11pm they give you a code for the back gate which was not particularly secure. The breakfast was ok but if it hadn't been included I wouldn't have paid for it. This hotel is in a good location but that's about it.

We arrived after midnight, and the staff was happy leaving our keys safely and sending us information to get in via email. Breakfast the next morning was fairly standard, although the delicious Belgian breads and pastries were top-notch. Just a block or two from the main market square, so ideally located. Parking nearby at the Biekorf is just under €9 for 24 hours.

Hotel is well located close by the main square. It was clean but uninspiring. The Breakfast selection was excellent but there were no beverage making facilities in the bedroom, so the only way to obtain a beverage was to pay in the lounge! The staff were helpful. The bathroom was adequate but the shower was not very good. Overall the Hotel was sufficient for our needs but is in need of updating.

Room Tip: !st Floor corner room has a balcony.

The reception was a disappointment as pictures had shown quite grabs entrance. Also website boomed on had expressed free wifi which was not the case. Breakfast was lovely but continental rather than having full English available. The lift was a challenge as it wobbled when you got in. Service was fabulous and we had a great stay in a lovely double room. Everything was tired but clean. Enjoyed our stay xxx
