“Fantastic location- good food, very accommodating”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 18, 2013

Stayed here for one night on a sunday-chanced parking on the street as we arrived on Sunday afternoon and were leaving at 8am- chance paid off no ticket and saved our selves £20!!

didnt realise if we were in the right place initially, as you walk into a restaurant- but ask a waiter (very friendly) and they will guide you.

basic room double bed, shower and sink. Shared toilet. A;though was apprehensive about this did not see anyone else so was fine.

Located right on the square- ideal location, great breakfast, quiet by night.

Will be taking my family back again!!!

The check in was quick and efficient and the map to find the carpark was much appreciated! Our room was a bit shabby and not spotless but was very comfy and quiet. we had a great nights sleep there. perfect after a long day from driving and before a day of sightseeing. The staff were incredibly friendly and helpfull and breakfast was delicious and fresh. We'd definatley stay here again aqs the location was just spot on!

Room Tip: We had room 8 with a view of the back of the buildings. We weren't worried about a view though a...

We picked this hotel as we wanted to be central and in the centre of the City. We asked for a room with a tele and a great view. We certainly weren't dissapointed. We were in room 9 and it had a great view of the Belfry and the centre. The room had a toilet and shower which from reading other reviews not all rooms had. We paid 178 euros for 2 nights, which for the location (and how expensive the City is already) we thought was ok. The room is pretty basic and the plug socket could have done with a visit from an electrician, but we found it fine to get ready in, have an afternoon snooze and collapse into at the end of the night. This is more like a B&B, but it does what it needs to. We found the breakfast very nice and the service was good and staff friendly. We did not eat there but whenever we walked past the food smelt lovely and customers looked happy and it was always busy. Not sure it deserves the bad reviews on here, but as we did not eat anything other than breakfast we cannot comment further. There is no front desk so it is like walking in to a restaurant than a hotel reception. There is parking close, but you do have to drive back out and round the houses. The staff in the hotel will help guide you though. Enjoyed the stay and would return to that room again if we were to return.

Room Tip: Room 9 is the way forward. Good view at the top and has a toilet and good working shower. (Check p...

This could be a very nice and profitable business, but no one seemed to care.
The check in was minimal, with the bar man after he'd finished making a round of drinks.
The room was dirty. Cobwebs behind the door, holes in the tiny bath towels, 5 dead mosquitoes on the walls, skirting needed hovering.
Maids were very friendly, but seemed a lack of management.

This review is for the restaurant only, we did not stay in the hotel.

Plus points
The restaurant was warm and cosy
The beer was cold

Minus points
The food was poor
The service was at best disinterested

We should have heeded the warning sign of a very tatty menu which was almost thrown at us when we sat down. We both had the Flemish stew, which appeared to have been warmed up for 1 minute in the kitchen's microwave. We could not eat all of the accompnaying frites, as we both started to feel ill and queasy while eating. This may or may not have been down to the food, I wouldn't like to say as we had had a very busy day sightseeing and it could have simply been tiredness that had overcome us.

We would not go back to the Central Hotel for a meal of any sort as there are many nicer places in the city of Bruges.

The worst pasta and pizza ever and ever had... You would make such a terrible pizza and pasta as an Italian restaurant ! in the middle of Bruge and you would survive; bravo ! The loacation misght be great, however except for that, do not even try for a bottle of beer (which is EUR 8) !
