“Nothing special”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 7, 2013

Not very close to the centre as website states... Room not very special, not very friendly welcome. breakfast was nice though.nice croissants. but nevertheless very accessible by car. and that is all there is to it.

Room Tip: maybe book the suite

5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

I travelled to Bruges for 2 nights and I was looking for something with reasonable price and nice location. The staff is very welcoming and they are ready to help you with any issues you might have. I appreciated the public area where together with the bar and wi-fi connection you can spend a nice time with a beer after having a day out in the center. By foot it takes approximately 15-20 mins and it is in very close area of Bruges train station. The rooms are very cozy and comfortable and if I have another trip to Bruges I would choose Brugotel again for sure.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 12, 2012

Stopped here when Newcastle played Bruges and found the accommodation to be fine, the beds were particularly comfortable. We walked into the centre and this took 30 minutes, which was fine in dry conditions. The breakfast was a fairly standard, help yourself affair, with hot eggs and sausages, a choice of breads, cheeses and hams etc, with coffee, tea and juice, cereals etc. The staff were very helpful and patient, having to put up with a few people that perhaps found the Belgium beer a bit too strong. Friends who drove to the hotel said it was easy to find from the motorway and if i was driving i may well use this hotel, if i was on foot with limited time i would stay somewhere more central next time.

No issues here whatsoever with good parking

Easy access from motorway

I paid £46 through hotels.com mobile app which seemed a bargain

Rooms are clean with a recent refurbishment

Just watch out if arriving late as food at the nearby restaurants stops sharp at 2300

I booked this hotel for a 2 night break in Bruges to break up a camping holiday around Europe. When we first arrived it looked brill, and the free parking was a plus. Warm welcome by the staff at the front desk and reception and bar looked lovely. When walking to the room however, this opinion changed dramatically, the corridor smelt like a pub toilet and the room was terrible. It was dirty and looked cheap. The bathroom looked like the set from 'Psycho' , it was filthy and looked as if it was falling apart, the bathrooms in the campsites were pristine in comparison! The walls were paper thin, so expect to be woken up everytime anyone in the rooms around you so much as breath loudly! The hotel is about a 35 min walk to the centre which is further than thought and expressed on the website. The TV in the room didn't work but after a rude encounter by the reception staff they got it sorted.

Bruges is a beautiful city and will definately return, however will pay more to stay in a closer and cleaner hotel.

Just used Hotel for one night but was very pleased with the service. The room..(Trendy) was clean and adequate, Staff were very helpfull, Breakfast was good and the price was very reasonable. The receptionist arranged a taxi for us into Bruges for the day using a voucher system. well worth it if you wish to look around. Saves you having to drive in and find parking space. Hotel was also close to the motorway. All in all, very good.

Good place to stay for weekend break. Close proximity to City center, take car and park at train station for free bus shuttle. Bathrooms require refurbishment. No airco, in summer request for room in back where is less sun exposure in afternoon.
