“Handy location - expect what you have paid for and you won't be disappointed”
Reviewed April 30, 2012

Overall, we can't complain as this hotel is one of the lower end price scale hotels. Great location & close to a fantastic little Tapas at the end of the street that's open until the last customer wants to go! We had room 19 which was basic, but clean and functional. No frills sort of room ie no kettle, shampoo etc. (One tip, our friends had room 22 which they weren't happy with - so maybe good to ask for another room if offered).
We were expecting a decent breakfast after reading some older reviews on here - this is not now the case, bread rolls, wafer thin ham, plastic cheese & hard boiled eggs - & very bad coffee!
The husban & wife team are very fiendly and we were thankful for them looking after our luggage til late on the last day,
We would consider going there again, but may spend a little more next time for a couple of 'frills'.

Hotel Lucca is in pretty much the perfect location for walking to the main points of interest in Brugges. It is also right next to an underground parking garage, which costs only 10euro per day, which helped us a lot coming by car. The price is fair for a basic hotel in an interesting, unique building, but the service left a little to be desired. We were surprised to find a cleaner already at work in our room while we were eating breakfast (9:00 - 10:00am), no doubt trying to get ahead on his work but not alright with us. The breakfast buffet was alright, but plan to get a good coffee someplace after - again something left to be desired.

I stayed in this hotel as a single traveller and I loved it. it was quiet, was lovely and very good price. the staff was helpful, the location great, and the ceilings were very high. it was not terribly ritzy, the bathrooms could use a renovation, but as i wasnt on honeymoon or anything it suited my needs very well. i was on the first floor and got good wifi in my room. i read some negative reviews of the place, such as there was a smokey smell in the building and was worried, and yes, there was a slight smell but it didnt bother me at all, and i am pretty picky about things like that.

Firstly the positives - fantastic location, friendly staff, charming breakfast room and the public car park is only 50m away. Also I could get Wi-fi in my room which was a bonus.

But the negatives are numerous, some are minor irratations like the noisy neighbourhood, (evenings are understandable but the singing milkman was a no no). Our rooms were small and smelt of stale tobacco with both rooms consisting of several broken or missing fittings. The shower curtain was too short which meant the bathroom flooded, the shower tray took an age to drain, the shower head was broken and the loo rocked when flushed. No drink facilities in the rooms and the complimentary toiletries consisted of a very small soap that defied attempts to get a lather. The New TV worked but the only British Channel was BBC2, and the remote in our friends room didn't work properly. Also considering we had booked well in advance they seem to dish out the rooms on a adhoc basis so did we get left with the brits room?

The breakfast was ordinary but the worst incident was on our second & last morning when my wife found mould on her butter and after we checked the others found them to be a month past the sell by date. Apologies from the waitress but little else.

Don't stop here, as although the surroundings are good, nearly everything about the Hotel Lucca was poor.

Great location in Bruges, we walked everywhere from the hotel. The owners were lovely and very helpful - pointed us to the best chocolate shop in town. The breakfast room was absolutely beautiful w/ some tasty food. The only problem was that the walls were very thin, we could hear everything our neighbors said, as well as all the passerbys on the street.

The Hotel Lucca is a very nice hotel for the money. Our party had two rooms. Our room was recently renovated and very nice and spacious. My brother and sister-in-laws room had not been renovated but had a cozy feeling to it. Hans and his wife were great hosts. Every morning that we went down to breakfast, our room would be made up while when we returned. I would not hesitate to recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: Unfortunately, the outside noise started at 6:00 AM, but that's Brugge.

We booked two rooms for our family and enjoyed Bruge more because of this charming, quaint hotel. For some people, it may be a bit spartan, but for us it was just fine. Stowed my car in the convenient low cost parking for 3 days and set out exploring the town. Make sure to take the canal trip first as we did to line up things to see which was the tip given to us at the hotel along with a helpful map.

Breakfast is copious and gets you off to a good start. Everything is within walking distance of this Hotel.
