This is a great little hotel.
On arrival we were greeted by the Manager Christoph who offered to take all our bags to our room while we parked at the new underground hi-tech car park, which is 2 minutes away.
We couldn't believe how well-appointed our twin room was. Beautiful decor, spotlessly clean and a great range of lighting options. Also an electric sun blind which you could adjust to vary the amount of light through the window. There was a flat screen TV on the wall and a safety deposit box that worked (unlike many we have experienced). The bed was really comfy and the room was nice and quiet.
The bathroom was large and really well designed with a powerful shower. To top it all there was a brand new air-conditioning unit, which was welcome on a hot weekend.
The Continental Breakfast was excellent and served in a friendly and efficient way. The range of cold meats, breads and cheeses were constantly renewed as was the tea and coffee.
The hotel is situated very close to the City Centre and is opposite the new Concert Hall.
The only possible downside is the lack of a lift and this should be borne in mind when booking.
All in all a terrific hotel, with friendly helpful staff, what more could you want?
Just one last thought on the negative side. Why is Bruges so hideously expensive? The prices most restaurants are charging are ridiculously high. 26 Euros for a main course is average. The standard of service is also very poor. Unfortunately value for money is a phrase you don't hear very often in this lovely city.
