Stayed for one night on a drive back from Croatia. Booked this hotel with a view to having a quick look around Bruges whilst getting back to UK.
The location was really quite good and as other guests have reported it's a short easy walk right into the centre of Bruges. The room we booked was more than adequate and the price paid was, we felt, very reasonable.
A few things on the downside, bearing in mind we had just driven from the Austrian/German border so tiredness may well have been a factor, when we arrived even though we had been told we had a parking place reserved, I did get the impression it was a bit of a case of more luck than judgement that we actually got one, it was very busy. The fact that it does have parking though is a big bonus.
Again perhaps due to the long drive we had just done I found the receptionist efficient but bordering on unfriendly, not exactly welcoming.
The lift is somewhat quirky and we eventually chose to use the stairs, no real problem there, but just don't panic if it stops between floors, stay calm and read the, specific to that lift, instructions.
In the morning we were very happy with the breakfast and the staff in the breakfast room were lovely, very friendly, polite and efficient, couldn't have asked for more.
In the morning we had a couple of hours walking round the centre, my wife really enjoyed it, the buildings are very pretty and quaint all well manicured. I just felt it is now basically a place that caters solely for tourists, so many restuarants, chocolate shops, souvenir shops etc that it doesn't seem to have much, for want of a better word, soul.
But all in all, glad we went and the Flanders is as good as anywhere I'd say to stay
