“Great Location”
Reviewed September 26, 2013

Wonderful location, quiet and near to the centre of Bruges. Our room was adequate ( we paid slightly extra for a larger bed) if a little dark and the only mirror was in the bathroom and not full length. I felt it was value for money but was let down by the breakfast. A major feature of Bruge is the wonderful bakeries but this did translate itself to the breakfast offering. Shiny ham, poor qulaity wafer thin cheese slices and average bread rolls. I have had many continental style breakfasts over the years and this just felt tired and without care. The fresh fruit salad which appeared one morning had not seeded/cored the apples but just hacked them into cubes !

Its a shame that the breakfast let the whole stay down as the staff in every other area tried hard to please.

Ok, this is a budget, tourist hotel. It's affordable and it's in an excellent location for exploring the gorgeous city of Bruges. Just a few minutes to walk to the town square and easy to get to anywhere in the city.
Staff are very helpful, speak excellent English and are happy to help with suggestions for restaurants and places to see.
Rooms are reasonably sized, clean and comfortable, but the decoration is a little tired. But hey, it's half the price of other hotels and the breakfast is included. The breakfast is again, adequate with all the usual stuff, but there are just so many yummy cafes in the city, we found that we tended to venture out for brunch rather than stay for the brekky buffet.
Parking is 20 Euros/day but you can park in the city underground parking for about 6/day. And at weekends you can use the blue parking disks. Whatever you decide the staff can help you.

So, all in we loved the location and would come back here for sure.

Great value for money.

Excellent location only few minutes walk to the market square. Quiet location. Staff very friendly and helpful n multilingual. Breakfast was continental but they have made an effort to please every nationality with the buffet option including sliced bread & toaster for us Brits. Other options included fruit, yogurt, cereal, various meat & cheeses. Tea & coffee are available at breakfast however no facilities in the room to make yourself. We were. Aware of this before we booked but due to luggage restrictions decided not to take our travel kettle etc & found that our caffine fix at breakfast was enough as plenty of cafes around if we needed to top up (also gave us an excuse to use their toilets as most public toilets charge to use them). The room was a decent size and the bed comfortable. We had a shower in our ensuite however there were rooms with baths. The only negative points would be the room was very hot & u needed the window open to cool it down which then created a new problem of letting the Mosquitos in. Had we been aware if the Mosquitos in advance we would have come prepared with repellents and bite cream. The room did have a plug in repellant which we only found on the last 2 days which did help. A fan to hire at reception or in the room would be an improvement worth considering for the owners. Despite these minor problems we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would definitely stay here again and recommend it to others.

Recently stayed here for 2 nights with a mate whilst on a cycling trip in Belgium. On arrival we found that there was no where to securely leave the cycles and so asked if we could take them to the room. The staff were really friendly and agreed that we could.

Breakfast was good - all the usual continental things, and done to a reasonable standard - nothing hot though.

The staff on reception were very knowledgable about Brugge and were able to point us in the right direction for the historical and most unusual bars etc. Obviously it would have been rude not to have followed their advice and as a result we had a top couple of nights.

My wife and I are on a tight budget so we have had some surprises over the years with our holiday accommodation! The europe hotel was one of the nice surprises! It is in an excellent location to tour brugges from.also it is a 30 min walk or a 10 euro taxi ride from the train station. When you are there it is perfectly quiet ,surprising given its central location.it is one of the few places that I have holidayed at and not needed earplugs to achieve peace.the rooms are clean and the beds comfy.the decor is a little tired but you are here to get out and about not stare at the walls.the buffet breakfast is adequate ,choice is limited however there is something for everyone and it's all top quality.the staff are very attentive giving tour advice,maps and even free loan coats and umbrellas if needed.i have stayed in worse places and paid a lot more.book the europe hotel now before the secrets out and the price reflects its quality.

We arrived early on Tuesday morning straight off the ferry so we knew we would be too early to go into our room. But the receptionist was very helpful and said we could leave our luggage until 2.30 pm. We did just that and had a look round Bruges before returning to the hotel where we were told our room was ready. The hotel is reasonably priced and great for using as a base the staff were all helpful and friendly. Continental breakfast well presented and most acceptable. I would recommend the Europ Hotel to anyone wanting a cheap friendly hotel used as a base in Bruges. The whole experience was most favourable.

A nice Hotel. Centrally located not too far from the sights. Staff were extremely friendly and helpful. Room was a bit basic but clean and the bed was very comfortable. I would suggest taking a travel kettle, cups and some tea/coffee as there are no tea making facilities in the room.
All in all a good value budget Hotel. I would stay there again.
