“Would pay just to use their funky LED light shower”
Reviewed June 16, 2011

Stayed in one of their triple rooms with two friends and it was a very pleasant experience! The beds were very comfortable and their funky LED showers are brilliant! Very impressed with the staff and their helpfulness when we needed to find accomodation in Brussells! Very memorable experience!

My wife and i stayed at this loverly modered hotel for 2 nights for a short stay as we had just travelled up from germany i booked a double room online. We enjoyed our stay the staff at the reception were very helpful the room was compact and very clean but the rooms only to sleep in for such a short stay every thing was there to hand and the shower was so enjoyable i loved the light shinning through the rose head letting you know when it was hot red light and cold blue and green medium heat lol we will be staying again in the near future

Room Tip: if you smoke ask for a ground floor room

stayed at the "etap"30th may to 3rd june 2011.The hotel is on the station square of Bruges.Come out of the railway station look right and you will see a modern and I must say out of keeping with Bruges high rise building.Climb the steps or use the moving stairway.At the top keep straight ahead passing the "saturn"electrical store until you come to more steps and lifts.Climb the steps or use the lift and at the top facing you is the hotel "etap"I checked in with the very friendly but brusque sounding "ronny".I realised I had left my suitcase lock key at home.So Ron spent 15minutes of his time cutting off my lock.Ron also spent 15minutes ringing Taxi firms/restaurants to locate my camera which I left behind on a night out later on in my holiday.As it happens the taxi firm that I had used the previous night was on the way to the Etap to return a camera they had found in one of their vehicles.Honest eh? My room was modern open plan and spotlessly clean.I decided one morning to try out breakfast so I paid 7euros(£6.25)at reception.Breakfast consisted of all you can eat ham,bread of all descriptions,fruit,yoghurt,cheese(pre-packed)jam/honey a toaster was available for use.tea/coffee/chocolate/fruit juice.At the railway station buffet a breakfast was available on similar lines to the Etap at 6.45euros(£5.76)but it was not all you can eat.I would most definetly stay at the Etap again.Thoroughly enjoyable.

Room Tip: be nice to the helpful staff.

If you take the train into and out of Brugge, this hotel is in a great location. We stayed for one night in May and were pretty happy not to have to schlep our stuff into central Brugge (we rarely take taxis). I'd read that the place could be hard to find, even from the train station, so we asked at Information and they easily pointed us in the right direction. After checking out the next morning, we were on the train platform in about 10 minutes--it was very convenient!

My husband and I, 31 and 30, thought the room was great for a short visit. The lighting is pretty cute, too (and you can control it from the bed), and everything is new and clean. The bed was actually quite comfortable, perhaps on the firmer side, and the room was quiet despite facing the train tracks.

It's a small room so it might not be right for everyone, but it was very efficiently planned out. It also didn't have any of the historic charm Brugge is known for. I'd definitely stay here again for a short and easy visit, but if you are planning a longer stay or want the charm of a bed and breakfast, you might be better off looking elsewhere. It's also about a 15 minute walk from the center of town.

Booked via internet, had difficulty finding location. Managed to get directions from sister hotel, Ibis/Novotel. Opened last year, it's very clean though rooms are small but basic with absolutely modern fixtures. No leaky shower stall but could do with a floor mat to catch condensation from shower door. No foul smell of cigarette smoke lingering in hallway or elevator. Efficient English-speaking front desk staff. Wish there's free WI-FI as there's only 1 terminal in the lobby for guests' use. Was only able to use PC after 2nd attempt in queue (10mins) just to do an internet flight check-in.

I thought it would be basic for the star rating but it was a lovely Room and very clean. I liked the sink being in the room it worked, the room was spacious and offered British channels. The staff were friendly and helpful. Location is great about 10 minutes to the city. There are shops 5 minutes away such as a supermarket and subway and the train station is located there as well. Free Internet using their computer but you have to pay for wifi. Excellent all around I would definitely return!
