“A no frills gvfm hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 2, 2011

If you are after a no frills gvfm hotel then this one ticks all the boxes. Just a short 10 mins walk from the station, the hotel is situated on the first square that you come upon. From the hotel it’s only another short walk to the main Markt Square. The rooms are contemporary and clean with all the basics of shampoo, shower gel sachets, but don’t expect extra niceties like a box of tissues, safe, mini-fridge etc. The staff are quietly efficient and helpful. Breakfast is a good basic – fruit salad, yoghurts, juice, Danishes, cheese and ham etc.

We didn’t dine at the hotel and only tried the restaurant next door, De Middenstand, but can highly recommend it. Huge portions when ordering the carbonnade flamande and the prices are also slightly cheaper than other restaurants! Also … for an unforgettable mug of chocolate heaven go to De Proeverie in Katelijnestraat.

Just returned from a night stay at the T Zand and would certainly book again ! The hotel is only small but the sevice and the friendliness of the staff was excellent. The room was nicely decorated and very clean and the breakfeast buffet catered for any needs.The hotel is ideally located on T Zand square and only a few minutes walk from the market square.

The hotel was within easy walking distance of the station. Our rooms were immaculate, with Air-con which was very welcome. The staff were lovely, and as we arrived early we'd hoped just to leave our bags to check in later, but the rooms were ready and we were made to feel very welcome. The hotel is a five minute walk from the main square.
We stayed for only 2 nights but again, as we were leaving Bruges quite late on the hotel were very helpful in keeping our luggage safe.
Breakfasts were very nice, served in a very pleasant first floor room overlooking the square. We ate in the main restaurant on one night and the food was particularly good. The waiters, and indeed all the staff, were fluent in a range of languages and we were made to feel most welcome at all times.
I wouldn't hesitate to recommend the hotel, and will in fact be staying there again.

My partner and I stayed at the Hotel 't Zand for one night in August. We planned this trip rather spontaneously and found that a lot of hotels were already fully booked. Another thing to remember when visiting Bruges is that a lot of hotels have a 2 night minimum stay. I emailed the hotel and actually sorted everything out with the owner via email. Manager Pascale Van Moffaert and her husband not only speak at least 4 languages (Dutch, German, French and English) but are also extremely friendly and helpful. As an example, the weather was dreadful when we arrived and were immediately offered an umbrella which we were able to use while we explored Bruges.
The room was great, really tidy and very comfortable. The bathroom was super clean and spacious. We didn't really want to leave the room to go out in the wet.
The breakfast the next morning was good, nothing too fancy. You get freshly squeezed orange juice, which is always a plus but the selection was rather limited (scrambled egg, bacon, ham, cheese and a selection of jams). However the selection of breads was great –the fresh roles were delicious.

All in all I would definitely recommend this hotel, it's quite central (bearing in mind Bruges isn't very big) about 5 -10 minute walk to the main square and only a 10 minute walk to the train station. It also has a car park just outside the hotel (not sure about prices though, as we came by train).

We stayed 3 nights at the 'tZand fronting on the large plaza fronting the hotel. Just beyond the restaurant terraces is very large and convenient, and most important inexpensive, parking garage (a little over 8 Euro for 24 hours). Arrived without reservations but needing parking, we checked with tourist info, and while looking over the list of hotels I saw this very attractive small hotel over a restaurant right across the street from the "i". Indeed they had a room, and showed us two, both $110 per night (Wi-fi extra but not expensive) which was appropriate for the location (we could just wheel over our bags). The rooms were newly redecorated and beds were comfortable (in a clean scandinavian style which would fetch over $300 a night in New York). The breakfast was good, the clerk (who doubled at the restaurant adjacent to the small reception area) was helpful. We found that a restaurant on the Burgplein was better than the cafe in the hotel and the adjacent restaurant (it was chilly and there was not only a fireplace, but better food). Very convenient for all sightseeing.

Great customer service- staff on reception attentive and very keen to please. Rooms are air conditioned (though took 12 hours to drop to comfortable temp- maybe because when key card removed from room everything turns off!!) Rooms are understated but bedroom and bathroom are very clean and there are comfortable beds.
We needed family accomodation and were offered 2 rooms with a connecting door at a reasonable rate. Location is good with secure underground parking available within 100 yds ( approx E9 per 24hr period- a bargain!)
internet access via a cable is available if own laptop- charged at 5 euros for us.
Ate in the restaurant in the eveing- not able to add meal bill to hotel bill. Hoever food good and service good and friendly.
Couldn't fault this hotel. Would certainly stay again and would suggest it to others.
