“Very nice small hotel close to Bruges centre”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 14, 2014

Quiet and clean with friendly staff. Very modern bedroom and bathroom although a bit small but most European City hotels are. Our room had a queen size bed, which was extremely comfortable, and a single bed. Continental breakfast was included, basic but enough to set you up for the day. Bruges is a wonderful city but very expensive. The centre of Bruges and all the landmarks are only a few minutes walk from the hotel as is the train station.

We visited Bruges for the weekend, driving from the UK. The hotel is situated opposite the bus station but don't let that put you off as there is very little traffic noise once inside. It's also approx 100m from the large underground car park, ideally situated on the outskirts but in walking distance of the centre.
The rooms are clean and well equipped (inc. safe) and staff are very friendly and welcoming.
We are planning on returning to Bruges in the future and would definitely look to book this hotel again.

We came to Bruges to celebrate my 30th birthday, and I had the most amazing time. I loved every minute of it from the beautiful scenery, the cobbled streets and the most romantic walks I have been on. It was such a beautiful romantic place.

The hotel was in such a perfect spot easy to get to everything in Bruges. The hotel was ckean, comfortable and everything you need from a short break. Staff were pleasant and helpful. We arrived early and we were able to go to our room and unpack. And upon leaving we left our bags in the hotel until our journey home. Thanks for a fabulous stay.

I loved Bruges and I will be returning and will be returning to Hotel Albert if there is room. Wonderful place

Do not be deterred by the fact that this wonderful little hotel sits on a busy street, across from a bus exchange. It is quiet inside, the rooms have been freshly renovated, and it is perfect for the price. Large roomy bathroom, lots of light, and a very nice breakfast included in the price of the room. Hard to go wrong at the Albert I in Bruges.

Room Tip: ask for corner room in the back.

fantastic hotel, very short walk from the train station and 10 mins into centre. we thought it was the ideal location to explore bruges. we had a family room for 3 adults on the 1st floor, there is not a lift but we were helped with our cases without having to ask. the room was very comfortable and very spacious, with large bathroom and a further adjoining double room, both spotlessly clean, perfect.
breakfast was excellent with plenty of choice of food and hot drinks served by 2 lovely friendly ladies.
if you want good honest service, you can not go wrong with the albert.
we had a fab 3 nights here and hope to return in the future

Room Tip: 1st floor family room on front of hotel, very quiet

I was looking for an inexpensive hotel close to the train station for only 1 night and Albert 1 had very good reviews. Hotel is a 10+ minute walk from the train station and 10 minute walk to town center. I had room 31 on the 3rd floor with the window opening to the front street. There is no elevator and the staircase is very small, but they help you with your luggage so no problem there. The bathroom was very small, shower only, but clean. No coffee/tea making facilities in the room.

After spending the whole day walking around town, the bed and pillows felt so good. Practically no noise at all and I slept soundly through the night. Breakfast was simple, breads, cheese, yogurt and cereal.

A big plus for me was that most of the way between the train station and hotel I could take the bike path along the side of the park. I don't enjoy dragging luggage on cobbled streets.

Just returned from a short family holiday in Bruges and stayed at the Albert 1 Hotel. We found it to be the perfect choice for location and convenience. It is situated to the SW of the main town and is within very easy walking distance to all of the main squares, shopping areas and tourist areas. Parking is very convenient at the T'zand underground car park and surprisingly cheap at 8.70 euros for 24 hrs. Our family room was very well decorated, clean and modern with an interconnecting bathroom that led to a smaller double room for our two teenage daughters. A perfect layout, albeit with a steep climb up the stairs with suitcases.
All of the staff at the hotel were very polite and courteous with a special mention for the lady helping at breakfast. Unfortunately didn't get her name, but was incredibly attentive and was constantly refreshing the breakfast offer. Breakfast was continental and always very fresh. No tea / coffee making facilities in the bedroom, but staff always happy to oblige with room service for drinks if needed.
Overall a very good hotel and we would definitely look to stay there again when we go back.

Room Tip: Room 101 ideal for travelling with older children.
