First of, id like to say that hubby and I enjoyed Brugge and this hotel contributed to it by starting off our day with good buffet breakfast selection. Its a mixture of american and continental breakfast. Staff were friendly and rooms are clean. The hotel is just few minutes away from the train station and is just walking distance from its cbd and near some of the tourist areas.
Nearby the hotel are lots of shops that sell mostly souvenir items and chocolates. A few restaurants are also close to the hotels.
One minor negative review on this hotel would be on how the tv in the room is placed. It is located on one of the corners of the room which is not adjacent to the bed, so watching tv is a bit of annoying and add the fact that the only english channels are the news channels. They show english shows but they changed the voice into their own dialect and the subtitles too are not in english and the remote doesnt allow you to change them in english. Luckily they offer free internet (even if the signal was bad and connection was very slow), otherwise no entertainment inside the room.
Overall we will still recommend this hotel for its value and location.

I stayed in this hotel on 22nd August for 2 nights with my partner and parents and we had a lovely time.

The hotel is in a great location, it is off one of the main roads from the Medieval Hospital and is only about a 10-15 minute walk from the main market square and cathedral. The main street outside the hotel is bursting with lovely little chocolate shops and cafes, all very reasonably priced! There is also a Carrefour store opposite the hotel so very convenient for picking up bottles of water for the room etc.

The hotel itself is very clean and tidy and the staff we very polite and helpful at all times. The rooms were basic but cosy, but as there is so much to do in Bruges we hardly spent anytime in the room anyway! We stayed on a room only basis so did not try the food, although on the day we checked out we looked to see if we could get a bite to eat in the Restaurant but it was so expensive compared to the cafes we just went out instead.

Overall we had a lovely time and would definitely stay again and recommend to anyone looking for a cheap cheerful stay in Bruges.

We (2 adults & 2 children - 8 & 10 yo) enjoyed a short break at this hotel. It had everything we needed: good beds, a fridge, a safe, pool and wifi. Strangely, one of my favourite things about the room was the music in the bathroom. There were computers & an Xbox in the lobby to keep older kids amused. It was located within easy walking distance of most sights & train station and was just across the road from a Carrefour Express shop, which was ideal for buying snacks & drinks. The restaurant had a kids eat free deal to help keep costs down a bit for families. There was also a small playground but it was more suitable for younger children than mine.

While there, we took a carriage ride tour and also a canal boat tour (for which the hotel offers a discount). Both gave very different perspectives of the city and we all loved both but I think the carriage ride just edged it in popularity with my family. We also visited the Koningin Astrid park, which was lovely, and went up the Belfort. We didn't bother with the chocolate factory tour since we live within an hour of Cadburyworld, which we've visited many times so we know quite a lot about chocolate making. Judging by the reviews on Trip Advisor, the Brugge chocolate factory looks quite boring by comparison.

One tip for families is to let kids have a camera since there are so many things to photograph that they'll get lots of photos and really enjoy it. It also makes walking all day more fun for them.

Easy walking distance from the train station and good location for sight seeing this beautiful town. Clean large room with clean bathroom and separate loo. Staff were friendly, breakfast delicious with plenty of choice so worth getting breakfast in your deal. Would stay here again.

We had a nice stay for four nights but the hotel is nothing extraordinary. The rooms are nice and spacious. I was very surprised to discover that the rooms had exactly the same decoration they had in a Novotel I had been in Paris. The bed was comfortable, and the bathroom, although on the smaller side, was appropriated. The hotel is within walkable distance of all the attractions.

I found it very odd that the fridge was empty, and you have to go downstairs to reception to buy a drink (sodas, and water were offered).

Overall it was a pleasant experience but I will try another hotel if I return to Bruges.
