Hotel Ibis Budget Brugge Centrum Station
Ranked #49 of 97 Hotels in Bruges
Reviewed December 2, 2013

We have just returned from Bruges and stayed in this hotel for 2 nights. Must admit that at first sight the dimentions of the room were a shock, it is very small with the sink and shower in the room and very little space to walk around the bed. However, you could not see through the shower so that was ok but the toilet door is a hassle. It doesn't close and is impossible to hold closed so toilet noises might be a problem so going with a new partner would not be good.
There are no drawers so we had to live out of our suitcase. Couple of hangers so you can hang up your good things but take a couple more hangers with. The pillows are like wafers so ask for a couple extra. My daughter and I had one of the best laughs because I said to her to put the towels under her pillow to plump it up on our first night but when we saw the thicknes of the towels we just knew they wouldn't make a bat of difference. We just couldn't stop laughing so in a way it was worth having teeny tiny pillows and towels for the laugh we had - you had to be there:)

That said. The room, toilet and shower were spotless. The bed seemed hard when sat on it but was very comfy to sleep in. They make your bed and will give clean towels every day. The rooms are quiet - we did not hear much noise at all even though we were on the station side. Good double or triple glazing. Staff were very pleasant and helpful and the hotel's position is brilliant just a short walk to the centre of Bruges and 5 minutes from the train station. My sister stayed in a room across the corridor which was quite a bit bigger. I would stay here again but ask for a larger room. The breakfast at 7.5 euros was good and you could return to the buffet as many times as you wanted.

As i said once you get over the shock of the small space it was fine.

Room Tip: Odd room numbers seemed to be bigger but do ask for one of the larger rooms.

Dear guest,

we are happy to hear that once you got over the first shock of the size of our rooms, you and your daughter had a good stay in our hotel.
And indeed, do not hesitate to ask extra pillows at the reception.

We hope to welcome you and your family soon in one of our hotels.

Kind regards,

Budget hotel with great clean rooms, good shower, comfortable beds and great location, perfect for visiting the centre of Bruges, continental "all you can eat breakfast" is 7.50 Euro extra but worth it as lots to eat.

Everything you expect from Ibis: Good location - next to central station, 15 minutes walk to city center, clean, cheap. Rooms are small and basic but who cares if you are going to walk all the day round in Bruges, drink excellent belgian beer, eat seafood and belgian fries.

This hotel is ideal if you just wNt a place to put your head for the night. We stayed in a triple room, double bunk bed. It's was a bit of a shock at first but it was perfect for what we needed. Everything was supplied. The room was spotless and very comfortable. Breakfast was very reasonable and lots of variety. And for €84 for B&B for 3 people. Well worth a stay .

The location is great - close to the central station (we entered through the wrong door and couldn't get where we are, but there was a lift to the ground floor and we used the right exit after that)). The historical centre is pretty close too - just enjoy the walk.
The room is very stylish and compact. The staff was moderately friendly, very slow wifi... And shower in the room, really?

Anyway, that was value for money and exceeded our expectations!

but in the case of this hotel, what you get is clean, spacious and in a great position for sightseeing with the cost of paying for city centre hotels. If all you want is somewhere to lay your head after a busy days shopping, sightseeing, eating and drinking, you couldn;t ask for more
