“Great location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2012

Booked with Eurostar package early October. Very reasonably priced and great location. Although it's right behind the Belfry there was no problem with noise. Room was quite basic - small, but comfortable, clean and modern. TV with english channels was a bonus. But we didn't come to Bruges to stay in the hotel. The combination of location and price made this hotel perfect for our needs. Excellent breakfast. Only negatives - No room service and no tea/coffee making facilities in room. Going back end of November for Christmas Markets.

Agree with other readers that it is a lovely hotel, brilliant location,British TV channels, best hotel bed I've slept in, but.....
No tea/coffee facilities in room - sorely missed when we popped back to drop off packages.
Breakfast costs are a joke [17 euros, 12 if pre-booked over internet]. We recommend Hema - local shop [5-10 mins walk] selling everything. Excellent value - for 1 euro you get egg+bacon in fresh baguette + croissant + jam + tea/coffee. For extra 50cents - lovely orange juice. 3 euros for the two of us. Make sure you get there before 10 as the offer is 9-10am. Don't eat in the hotel it's just not worth it.
Take your own shampoo - they only have body lotion in bathroom.
Apart from that it is a superb location. Try Venice - just up from hotel - for a good meal.

The daily rate for the buffet breakfast is indeed 17 euro but you get a well presented all you can eat buffet with hot and cold dishes. A nice start of the day.
In our bathroom you can also find besides bodylotion, shampoo and soap.Maybe you have overlooked this during your stay.

Hopefully we can welcome you back here in Brugge once again.
With kind regards

Just stayed for 2 nights (2 rooms, 4 adults) and had a great stay. The hotel exceeded it's 3* rating and we would definitely stay again. We had booked standard rooms which weren't massive but were fine. Fantastic location. Took our 2 children in their early 20s. They thought it was a great place to stay and handy for the local bars(which they visited when we had gone to bed!). We used the public underground car park which was 8.7 per day. Much cheaper than the hotel one which is 25 per day. Seemed secure enough. We hadn't booked breakfast as we thought it was 17euro. It is unless you book in advance when it then costs 12euro - a much better price. We missed having a kettle in the room.

Beautiful and high level service hotel. Great location behind Belfry. Clean and "new look" rooms. Excellent breakfast buffet. No free wi-fi. Good heating system. Its very important if you travel autumn- winter-early spring season.

Hotel Martin's was booked based on Tripadvisor reviews. Great location 2 minutes from main square in Brugge located in very charecterful cobble stoned street with immediate access to shops , resteraunts and all the main tourist attractions.
Hotel rooms excellent ( no tea/ coffee making facilities). Hotel facilities excellent but did not use the bar or resteraunt as very expensive. Better that you venture out into the square and go a few streets beyond for more affordable food and drink. Room price came with breakfast buffet which was excellent for choice and quality. Hotel staff could not have been better and no quibble over billing as described by some other reviewers. So in summary why pay for 4 and 5 star accommodation when you can experience the excellence of the 3 star Hotel Martin's.

Stayed for three nights. Great location behind Belfry. We had an interesting circular room. Good, friendly and efficient service. Free Wi-Fi works well. Excellent breakfast buffet. Good bar with very reasonable prices. Would return without hesitation.

Great place.
Fantastic location.
Clean functional rooms.
The beds in ours were two singles pushed together, but that didn't bother us at all.

The only gripe I would say is a top sheet would have been nice, but we never bothered to ask for one because the room was perfectly warm ever in chilly October that we never felt the need. I'm sure the excellent staff would have obliged like they did when we asked for a clothes iron which they delivered inside of 5 mins.

I would stay here again and recommend. It to anyone looking in the price range. It's not a 5 star hotel, but neither is it trying to be, not charging like one, but it's close to a 4 star.

Thank you Martins!
