“Wonderful weekend”
Reviewed October 5, 2013 via mobile

It is about a 10 minute walk to the city on a busy street. However, we stayed in the family room (30) and it was the biggest European room I've ever stayed in. The kids loved the pool and play area. Breakfast was typical and included in the price. Good value for the money.

What a great hotel and staff. Lovely dining staff as well at breakfast. The breakfast was lovely and huge apples and the croissants were divine. Rooms spotlessly clean and fresh towels every day. I really do not understand why some people have given this hotel a less than good review.
So near the centre of Brugge and a delight to come back to the smiling reception staff. I will definately stay at this hotel again. I took my family from Australia and they have travelled the world and stayed in many hotels and they were very impressed as well at the staff and quality of the hotel.

Room Tip: ground rooms are great

We stayed at the Karos hotel in Bruges for two nights.
The hotel is warm and friendly.
All the staff are very polite and courteous.
The rooms were spacious. We had a family room which was four single beds.
There were two adults, a 16 & a13 year old but the room was ample for the 4 of us.
Some of the reviews we read before we went said the rooms were dirty and old.
The room we stayed in clean and looked newly refurbished.
When we booked it stated we would get a free continental breakfast, which was correct but they also had bacon and eggs in a heated tray, which was bonus for my lad who only eats bacon.
Hopefully we will return to Bruges one day and we would not hesitate to go back to the Karos hotel.

Hello there!

Waauuuw , thank you ever so much for sharing your feedback with your fellow travelers! I see you are from Wigan so I believe you came to support for your team during their footbal match against our Belgian Zulte-Waregem team, right? Congratulations on winning by the way ;-)

It was a pleasure hosting you in our hotel and I'm very pleased to read your party enjoyed the scrambled eggs and bacon.

Looking forward to welcoming you back again soon - The Floris team

We spent three enjoyable nights and actually commented on how nice it smelled! The hotel was immaculately clean and the staff extremely pleasant and friendly (especially the lady in the breakfast room) Great value, and would definitely return

Thank you very much for your nice comments, the fragrenced smell you noticed is this one of the Rituals stick we have spread all around the hotel (Hammam Secret it's named).

We had an enjoyable stay, mainly due to the good service and friendly staff and the high standards of cleanliness throughout which I think is really important. The room was a good size and the bathroom nice with plenty of good quality towels. The bed was a little firm for me and I always struggle to feel completely comfortable with hotel pillows but they weren't bad, All the bedding etc. was spotless and the maids did a great job of cleaning in the bathroom - we forgot to leave them a tip and I felt really bad as everything was absolutely pristine. We didn't use the pool but it's a good facility and the family area would be great if you had small children to amuse. The breakfast was good, choice of cereals and lots of variety of bread, rolls, croissants etc. There was fruit cocktail every day and it would have been nice to have a bit more variety there but don't want to nit-pick! 2 different fruit juices, cold meats and bacon and scrambled egg available every day too. As not all hotels in Bruges offer complimentary brekkie and its hard to find a good cheap dinner, we were very grateful for a decent meal to start the day. Full marks to the receptionist who checked out the train times to Ghent for us - by the way, go if you have the time, it's well worth it and only a little over 12 euros return. I would get the tram from near the station up to where all the nice buildings are, as it's about a half an hour walk - we had a baking hot day as well! Trains are quite frequent as well.
