“A Jewel in the heart of Bruge”
Reviewed December 8, 2012

A glimmering white hotel in central Bruges. 400 meter walk to the bell tower square or Markt. The common areas are elegant with Art Deco prints, high ceilings, and a great architectural details like Catydid columns and the Bruges signature swans in the stair railings. The hotel was dressed for the holidays including a grand 5meter Christmas tree in the spiral stairwell. It is a 10 euro taxi from the train station, 25 minute walk, or a 10 minute bus ride (2 Euros). Our room was small but clean. The only issue is that our room had a split bathroom – toilet through a door on one side and shower/sink across the room. I think that was just a few of the single rooms, not standard.
The hotel was filled with tourists on a busy holiday weekend – a mix of British and continental tourists - more families than I expected. Breakfast was excellent, but crowded.

Recently stayed at the Navarra. This hotel is very central to the Markt and bustling bars and restaurants. The hotel is very efficient from booking in to breakfast. Even though the hotel was very busy in the run up to Xmas the breakfast buffet was kept topped up and was very varied. The rooms are very clean and the doubles are a good size with lots of storage. There is only one lift however we never had to wait. There is also a lovely swimming pool and sauna area with a small gym. In all a very good hotel.

I had been to Bruges before and noticed this hotel, The location is absolutely the best just 2 minutes walk from the Market Square. They had decent parking for €14 per night, but considering the location this is reasonable.

Upon arrival you enter a gorgeous little courtyard with a very relaxing, warm and welcoming reception / seating area; the staf... all of them.... were very helpful and welcoming; they did everything they could to help us, even getting us some milk in a jar for a brew! :)

They recommended we didn't eat in the market square because of the cost / quality; after the 1st day we wished we had listened.

The TV has BBC1, BBC2, Channel 4 and some other channels. The Wifi is simple; open and fast with no annoying login pages and i could log in via VPN to watch Sky Go!

Hotel rooms were very very clean; very stylish and had everything you need.

We had friends with us whom were staying in a different hotel; because of the location we annoyed the staff to cal lfor taxi's a few times... never a complaint always very helpful.

Breakfast was gorgeous; definitely not worth paying through the nose in the city's restaurants.


Awesome stay would absolutely definitely stay here agian.

Booked the Hotel Navarra as part of a Eurostar break and its location couldn't be better - less than a 5 minute stroll to the Market Place (although the less said about the poor Xmas market there the better). Our room was perfect, tea and coffee making facilities (i.e. a kettle!) present and a decent sized bathroom and a really comfy bed. The restaurant was fairly small but this was an advantage as the breakfasts were brilliant, just about everything you could want and all fresh too. The staff were very friendly and helpful and if we returned to Bruges then I'm pretty certain that we would stay here again. 10/10

My boyfriend and I have just returned from a weekend away in Bruges staying at the hotel Navarra.
I always read reviews before i book to stay at places and i booked here because of the fantastic reviews...They arent wrong.
The hotel is beautiful and has everything you need, the staff are friendly and the breakfast buffet had us full up until lunch time!
You couldnt pick a better location if you tried, its about a 2 minute walk into the main market, which is just at the end of the street. However the hotel is set back off the road so it is nice and quiet at night time.
The only criticism i would make is that we had some sort of generator above or near our room which was constantly buzzing, but this cant be helped and none the less, we managed to forget about it after a while.
Thank you Hotel Navarra for making our stay in Bruges so wonderful, we will definately reccommend this hotel to friends and family!

Room Tip: I would advise to try and ask for a room a little higher up

Hotel Navarra was lovely. Great location, great breakfast, lovely room. It was also good value through a Superbreak Eurostar deal. Only very small negative was it can be complicated to get to some of the bedrooms. Otherwise, fantastic!
