I booked this hotel well in advance, it was meant for a nice end to my drive home through Europe from Portugal before we went to the Eurotunnel. I booked it on the basis of, it was fairly expensive and in a good location. It is around a 5 minute walk from the main square, to which you can access all parts of Bruges.
We paid 180EUR for the room, and a supplement of 25EUR for the canal view. I felt a bit disappointed if I'm honest. Reason being, we arrived a day early in Bruges and stayed in another, much cheaper hotel. We were given (randomly) a canal view room, which was literally ON the canal, we were able to feed the ducks. So being charged 25EUR for a canal view, which wasn't anywhere near as spectacular as my previous hotel, felt a little bit sour.
Paying 180EUR for the room, I expect superior quality, as with any hotel that breaches the £150+ mark. Sadly, I felt the rooms didn't match the prestigious aura the hotel were trying to achieve in my opinion. I thought they were a little rough around the edges, whether they were looking for that effect, I don't know. The hotel seemed to be the type, where everything is charged for, and what they do charge for is always a bit steeper than what you'd normally expect. 25EUR for a breakfast per person, for example, seems very expensive to me. To combat this we ate at a small french cafe which is located en route to the main square, which was lovely! (I'll try and get a review up on here).
I get the feeling that if you pay for some of the more expensive rooms in this hotel, you may get a better room. But in hindsight, I would rather spend the money on the glorious food and sights, as to be fair you are not in your room very much!
Canal view means; over the road, over the pavement and then you see the canal. Do not be fooled, it...
