“Good value option”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 25, 2013

Bruges is an expensive (but very beautiful) town and this is a decent priced option. It's not particularly luxurious, but perfectly functional and spotlessly clean. The location is pretty good - just on the canal about 3 minutes from the main square by foot - head to the Chip Museum and then along Academia. Being a little out of town made it quiet in the evenings, which was a bonus. The breakfast was surprisingly good - with lots of options and lovely service. Overall, a good option for the price.

Hotel is in a central, quiet location and easy walking distance to the center of town. The rooms are clean and comfortable and enough room to move around comfortably. Breakfast was good with quite a good selection to choose from.

On the downside we found the service at the hotel to be quite impersonal. We could also hear our rowdy neighbors in the next room coming in at 3 a.m. so soundproofing could do with some improvement.

Great location in that it's an easy walk to the main square in Brugge, but hotel is located in a quiet residential area. The building and interior is very charming. (We had the attic room at the top of the hotel that was a nice size for 3 people with a huge bathroom.) The customer service was very mixed. The owner lady was quite nice and friendly, yet some of the other staff barely said hello. It wasn't a bargin, but nothing is in a tourist city like Brugge.

I am a little late writing this review as we stayed at the Bryghia Hotel for 4 nights in June. The hotel is cosy and clean and is in a quiet location about 10 mins walk from the main square and a 20 mins walk from the railway station.The bed was comfortable and I guess the only downside to the accomodation was the rather small shower.There was a good continental breakfast on offer and tea and coffee in the room.Numerous resturants can begin to be found just minutes away from the hotel.There is obviously plenty to do in Bruges and I thought the Bryghia offered a good value base.

Dating back a few hundred years, the Hotel Bryghia is full of character and the interior is full of charm as befits a former family home. It ticks all the right boxes for "cosiness". The cons are that the bedrooms are quite small and somewhat cramped although the bed was comfortable and the bathroom was a decent, average size. The public area, apart from the dining room, is the hotel foyer/lounge. Although pleasant, it was not really an ideal place to sit and relax - it seemed to be more like another charming and "cosy" feature of the place. The dining room was pleasant and the continental breakfast offered a good range of breads, cold meats, cheeses, yoghurts and fruit. The coffee produced a massive caffeine hit - par for the course in Belgium!
There is parking in front of the hotel for about five cars. The time limit was 4 hours although I didn't see that much movement! The hotel has some spaces in an underground car park in Elizabeth Zorghestraaat - about five minutes walk from the hotel - at about 7 euros per day and I left the car there for three nights.
The great thing about Hotel Bryghia is the location. It is a short and pleasant amble to the Market Square - surrounded on two sides by restaurants - and the Burg Square. The main shopping areas in Steenstraat and Nordzandstraat are less than 10 minutes walk from the hotel and the canal side areas of Mariastraat and Wollestraat complete a pleasant circular route. You don't need a car in Bruges! Even the railway station is a very short bus ride away and a train to Ghent only takes 25 minutes.
Bruges can be expensive. I felt that the hotel, though charming and in a good location, was a bit over-priced for what it was. It was a top-rated guest house in my view. The staff were discreet and quietly efficient but did not seem that welcoming nor did I see them offer a smile or an exchange of pleasantries. As a first trip to Bruges this was an OK place to stay. If I returned, I would book into a modern, spacious Campanile on the outskirts and use public transport to get around the area - as I said, walking is the only way to enjoy Bruges. Don't forget to take an umbrella!!

Room Tip: Lose a couple of stone. The room will appear more spacious.

A bit off the beaten track, but only a few minutes walk to the tourist area. Great place to stay, quiet and cosy. Hotel is full of character, hosts are discreet. Comfortable bed. Would highly recommend it for your stay in this beautiful town. No internet access in your room and had to pay a small amount to access in the lobby.

Room Tip: I had aroom overlooking the front square and was fortunate to see the full moon from my window.

This hotel is in a fantastic location, about a 5 min walk to the main square and plenty of shops and resturants, the rooms are not the biggest, but they are clean, comfortable and have tea and coffee making facilities. The hotel comes into it's own at breakfast, it is one of the best continental breakfast we have had, and the best eggs in Belguim. Parking could be an issue, but for the 4 nights we were there we always managed to find a space. All in all this is a good value hotel with an excellent breakfast, and in a great location.
