Had a four night stay at this truly pleasant hotel 🏨 Excellent location with close walk into city... Staff extremely accommodating and polite ... Clean and comfortable room with balcony overlooking pretty view of cute Asian style garden situated in the centre of the building Lovely variety at breakfast 😋
We had a very enjoyable stay in this hotel. Reception and bar staff were very friendly and helpful. We could not fault the breakfast. Our room was very clean and comfortable with tea and coffee making equipment. We would definitely book here again.
The hotel is very outdated but that's not the biggest problem. There is absolutely nothing "golden" about this Tulip. Our room was just not clean at all. The bathroom smelled. It felt unhygienic. The wallpaper was falling off the wall, the bath was not clean. The toilet smelled of urine. No tea or coffee making facilities, no water or anything. The fire escape was closed off. HOW is this even legal, it can't be!? We were forced to take the lift! But the worst experience of it all: We were there the day that Queen Elizabeth II passed away. My husband (an Englishman) and I were going for a drink in the bar that night. My husband was still looking at the menu when the barman came over. I apologised to the barman, explaining that my husband was English and he was a bit distracted because his Queen had just passed. The barman looked at me with a stone cold face and replied "I do not give a sh**!" Well, fortunately my husband didn't hear it, because I have no idea what would have happened next. So long story short: we will never stay there again!…
Dated hotel decor Rooms average No card machine in bar so have to be walked to reception for every drink Woke up with bites all over me Wanted some water to take to the room…. Most hotels give for free, not this one, 25cl for 2.50€!! Disgraceful Whole place needs a re-think
All-in all a good stay. Decent room size. Great location on a canal, and easy walk to town. Breakfast buffet a little Spartan but doable. Spacious bar/dining area which would benefit from a makeover to brighten up the general atmosphere. Complimentary parking on a first come, first served basis. Bicycle storage also. Bruges is an exceptionally tidy and clean canal-type ‘village’ with well maintained, historical buildings. It visibly has an up-market audience. No shortage of high-end cars, people and overpriced dining and drinking options. I guess this is good, but it seems to have created a kind of Disney Park atmosphere where everything is just too pristine-medieval.
The hotel is within walking distance of the tourist sites and is right on a canal. The decor is dated. The room was decent and larger than I expected. The breakfast was very mediocre. If I went back I would chose a different hotel but if you don't have a better option then it was okay.
We had a great time as always at Hotel de Medici. We like the quiet location right next to the canal and away from the hustle and bustle of the "other side" of the main square. This was about our 6th visit and we'll be back again. Nice to see they've recovered well from the pandemic!
This hotel is conveniently situated along the canal and close to the city center. The walking distance to the main market square is appr 8 minutes. Good and comfortable room. Beware: if you want to park your car is will cost you 28 euros/night. We booked the health center and enjoyed the sauna and the whirlpool.
The hotel was a bit outdated, but overall the bedroom was quite spacious. The bathroom was rather good and had a bath which is definitely a plus. Our room was next to the elevator, but there was little noise at night so this didn't bother us. We also had breakfast at the hotel, so in the morning we could get our breakfast-box. This was quite a big disappointment. It was very badly organised and not well prepared so there was a long queue of hotel guests waiting for their breakfast box. The ladies that made the box did only speak English and was not friendly at all to the guests. Some guests even got frustrated because they had to wait for a very long time. The breakfast box was very basic, so they could have easily prepared this in advance. The breakfast box contained two small breads per person and two mini-croissants, some cheese and ham, two danone-yoghurts, an apple and a banana. The breakfast was definitely not a 4-star breakfast, you couldn't even get a cappuccino or a latte, only 1 regular coffee per person. So we were still quite hungry after the breakfast, luckily there's a pain quotidien not so far away. You can compare the breakfast to what you get at a cheap youth hostel. So would recommend getting your breakfast elsewhere. The overall service was rather poor. At our bathroom there was a little cube of soap, no liquid soap nor any shampoo. Strangely there wasn't any wifi-code in the room, you had to go to the reception to get this code. Apart from the receptionists, the staff didn't speak Dutch nor French. The breakfast lady wasn't very friendly, she seemed a little stressed out and frustrated because of the long waiting line and impatient guests. When we asked to the night receptionist if our car could stay two hours longer in the garage, he declined because they were fully booked. When we went to get our car, there were plenty of empty parking spaces. Althought they exists for several years, I had the impression it was the first weekend they opened, because of the lack of organisation and lack of customer orientation. So, wouldn't recommend booking a room here. If you decide booking it, don't waste your money on the breakfast but go get it elsewhere.…
We were there for 2 nights and thoroughly enjoyed our stay Great buffet breakfast, health centre, bar open 16-30 to 23-30, happy hour 16-30 to 18-30 Staff very friendly and helpful Short walk to main square
