Just got back from a 1 night stay here and it was very relaxing and we had a good nights sleep. There is a slight oder as you walk into the reception but it isn't that strong depending on what time of year you go, but there was no smell in the rooms or the breakfast bar. The hotel itself is probably just a 10 minute walk away from the Markt square of Bruges but there are plenty of little shops and sights on the way. When we arrived we were not allowed into our room as check in is not until 3pm but we were able to leave our suitcase at reception, however Bruges has a really low crime rate (as you will see some people will leave their bikes in the street unlocked and they will not be stolen). We were a bit worried that the smell would be in the rooms or we would get noise from people walking up and down the back street however it was a really good quiet sleep. In the morning breakfast was quiet and well laid out with a selection of breads and cereals, as well as eggs and bacon. The pool is not as big as it looks in the photos but it is really warm and nice if you want to unwind after a day of sightseeing. Would recommend this hotel to anyone who is looking for a quick get away, would have loved to have stayed more than one night. The only flaws I would say with this hotel is that we didn't have a double bed it was just two singles pushed together, and the fact that it overlooks the dual carriage way instead of some of the beautiful architecture of Bruges.
