“Cheap and cheerful”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 20, 2011

We stayed in that budget hotel for two nights starting Friday 17th June. Situated along the canal West of the town, we were only 15mn walk from the furthest part of the City. Family business with basic facilities , very clean and friendly, easy door policy as you keep your own keys, safe area, we had a room for two nights for €150 altogether breakfast included, continental and good quality one; the hotel was full of original features and the room was spacious, the bathroom was adequate, we would have loved just a tad more on the shower gel portions though.Our room was quiet, which was just ideal after partying in town. I would certainly recommend it for the budget travelers.

Adjacent to the square, within the city boundary, but easy to access and quiet. Most helpful and willing to put our motorbike in the garage, even at the late hour of our arrival. In an interesting building, overlooking a canal. Good value in an otherwise expensive city.

Hotel Ensor is a wonderful, comfortable hotel in a very picturesque location overlooking a small quite canal with ducks and swans!!! We ordered a standard dbl room but got a room with a balcony on the canal for no extra fee! It was so lovely! And all this view for 70 euro per dbl room with breakfast!!!! The rooms are clean and roomy enough, w.c and bathroom are separated. Breakfast room is nicely set and overlooking the canal too. Buffet breakfast is nice with tasty pane-cakes and chocolates. Only con is an expensive wi-fi – 5 euro per day, when it should be free for customers in a 3* hotel!!! Another small thing that I didn’t personally like is that there are no towels hanging in the bathroom, so you have to place your towers on the wash bin, which is not comfortable at all. The hotel is close to the city center (only 10 min walk to the Grand Market Square) and a 15 min walk from the train station. Definitely highly recommended as a cozy budget hide-away to explore Brugge!

This is a small, fairly basic hotel but good value for money considering that it's in the old town and has (limited) garage parking available. The rooms are small and a little dark but clean and comfortable. There are no TV or tea/coffee making facilities. Breakfast is adequate but the choice is a little limited.

And a wonderful Breakfast as well.

The prices in the restaurants are huge...so we would on occasion make sandwitches with supplies from the local supermarket.

Tip on visiting this area, Ghent was wonderful and the biggest surprise of all...
do go there !

The location was excellent, just 5min walk to the centre where there's bars, shops etc. Breakfast was good with yoghurts, hot rolls, jam, coffee, tea etc. Owner was helpful with pointing out areas of interest on a map he supplied us with. Room was ok, very large but a musty smell. Bed clothes were clean but the floor could've done with a vacuum. the bathroom was very old fashioned and could do with modernisation and a good clean, hairs in the shower were very offputting. I would reccommend this place as a short stay budget accommodation where you wont be spending a whole lot of time, as there is also no t.v in the room but was a radio.

I visited Bruges with my husband in June 2010, and stayed at Hotel Ensor for a night. We had a pleasant experience: the hotel was conveniently located near the T-Zand square, with great cafes and restaurants located nearby. The hotel is built in a quaint European style, but seemed to be a little old. The rooms were functional with basic furnishing, and were quite small. However, we had a pleasant time on the whole. The hotel served a decent breakfast in its small dining room. The receptionist though was not very helpful, especially when we asked him for some extra blankets! On the whole, for its price, I think it was a decent deal.
