“Hotel Central Restaurant”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 30, 2013

Four of us stopped at Hotel Central for a light evening meal on the evening of September 12. Food was good, but wait staff spoiled what could have been a lovely evening. Our table was ignored as waiter lavished attention on others. Numerous waiters literally yelled back and forth to each other and ran down to talk to a cabbie that stopped in the square. I had to go up to the head waiter for our tab and even then he didn't stop talking to a friend who had stopped into the restaurant.

Ate here last week, the food is decent but completely over priced as are there local beers. A great location however situated in the main square. The staff are unfriendly and do not hesitate in asking do you want to leave a tip. I would suggest eating in some of the side streets off the main square.

Perfect location and price pretty good. Staff brilliant. Rooms a bit on small side and a wee bit shabby but we didn't spend long in there AND the beds and pillows were really comfortable and clean. The glass panel in the door was a bit of a pain as every time someone turned on the hall light it woke me up (in bed early as we were working). That really needs something to cover it over.

The rooms did become very hot as the window only opened a little and we were plagued by mossies. Take mossie repellant with you and if traveling by car a room fan would help too.

We have booked to stay there next year as we enjoyed our stay and felt comfortable there

Room Tip: 1, 2 and 3 are standard rooms on first floor, there is no lift and no view

This hotel is perfectly located on the main square opposite the belfry. The owners are both very nice and helped us with any questions we had about the hotel and city. The room is basic as stated although it could have been cleaner as a few used shampoo sachets were left on top of the shower amd the walls are a bit dirty. Breakfast was very good with bread/toast, croissants, other pastries, yoghurts, with all sorts of jams, and spreads available. Tea, coffee and orange juice is brought to the table. Overall a nice stay.

We stayed here for one night as a last minute finish to a tour around Normandy and we're so glad we did. The hotel could not be in a better location in Bruges, right on the Markt! We paid a little bit more for a "room with a view" and the view of the belfry and Markt was amazing! The room was spacious with a good sizes bathroom (Room 9). You check in at the bar and the staff were very helpful, the gentleman carried my very heavy bag up the stairs for me. The room has character and after staying in 3 other hotels in France my partner thought this one was the nicest. The breakfast in the morning was lovely, very nice fresh pastries, cold meats, toast, jam, cereals, juice, tea, coffee, yoghurt. I chose this hotel because we were only staying for one night and therefore didn't want to waste time getting to the centre. I would not hesitate to stay here again on my next visit to Bruges.

On our way to south of France but decided to see Brugge and Gent so booked two nights in each city. Hotel Cental Brugge is slap bang in the middle of the city in the market square. Asked for room near the ground and were put on first floor and the hostess even carried my case up. The room was large, good shower and toilet but no TV. Spotless and the bed was really comfortable. Had two meals with aperitifs starter main and wine and beer. Cost circa 90 euros for two and the quality was brilliant. Everything you want to see in Brugge is a short walk away as is the canal tour at 6 euros each or a horse and cart tour at 32 euros for five. Was a shame we only had two nights but will definitely return.

Glad I didn't find this place on tripadvisor before booking because I wouldn't have based on the restaurant reviews. But there's nothing wrong at all with this place as a hotel. The staff were all really friendly to us. The room was immaculate and you can see from our picture that we probably had one of the best views in bruges! The breakfast was quite nice too. It was a fairly typical continental breakfast but the bread and pastries were really fresh.
