My husband had booked this hotel for one night online for a birthday surprise for me and as soon as we arrived we were both very impressed and pleased at his choice. We didn't really know where to park as the hotel does not have it's own car park but as soon as we arrived we were given a map and directions of where to leave our car and were very happy as it was nearby and really secure and all for less than 10 euro overnight.
Our room was on the first floor so we had to pass the breakfast room to get to the lift. It did appear to have a "hostel" feel about it as mentioned in previous reviews but it was also clear that the hotel was in the process of being updated so not everything was 100% perfect. It was out of season and we appreciated that maintenance has to be done at some point. We were not affected by any of this. Our room, although it was a double, was quite small. The en-suite was really tiny, felt like it was the bathroom in a caravan or portaloo! But for one night we were not complaining. Had we stayed longer I would have requested a larger bathroom. The double bed was not a double but 2 singles put together which was fine except it also had 2 single duvets rather than a double or king size. Again, it was ok for one night but I would have asked for a switch if I'd stayed longer.
Breakfast was fantastic. Obviously no full English here but I really enjoyed it in comparison to a cooked breakfast. As much of whatever you wanted and available until 10am.
The canal view was lovely even though it was January and miserable and cold weather! I can imagine it is stunning during the summer months and hope to return to see this in the future. Our only mistake was not realising that in January most places in the town are closed as it is so quiet but it was great to be able to walk around the town without too many crowds and actually see what we wanted to see. I can't wait to return to Bruges and I will return to Hotel Ter Reien although I will request a larger room and stay longer than one night.
