“Very good hotel, excellent location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 7, 2013

We spent three nights there. Very helpful staff, lovely, friendly lady who runs the breakfast room. Helpful with parking, restaurants, where to go, etc. I have stayed at another excellent hotel in Bruges before. It will be a tough decision the next time. The location here, while not perfect, is very convenient to the old city center.

We stayed for three nights as a base for visiting Bruges and the First World War battlefields (about 35 miles away) The hotel is just at the edge of the old city and near to the train and bus stations. As we were traveling by car we chose this hotel because it was adjacent to a large underground car park entered from the underpass on the main road and which the daily maxinum charge is 8.5 Euros for 24 hours. Take the right hand lane when going through the underpass and slow down till you reach the entrance. The rooms were fine and clean and the manager and waitress who served us spoke fluent English. Across the road is the local bus halt, the new concertgebouw hall and Information Centre and a nunber of restaurants, and then you enter the old city. It's about a 5 minute walk to the Cathedral and another 5 minute walk to the market square with the Belfry. Request a ground floor room if you have trouble getting up the stairs.

My partner and I stayed here for three nights and would definitely stay here again- the service was great, the room very clean and a good size, very modern bathroom with good shower, and a very comfortable bed. Excellent location right next to the main bus terminal (and information centre, where you can buy Brugge city card, etc) - a 10 min walk (max) into the heart of the city and less than that to the train station. Great breakfast, fresh food and good selection, and wonderful service from the lovely lady that looks after you (brings you coffee, bread, etc). A small, personal, cosy hotel; perfect for your stage in Bruges, and great value.

Room Tip: We had a room overlooking the street and bus terminal, but it was not noisy or disruptive at night a...

We stayed for three nights at this lovely, friendly hotel. We had a clean and comfortable room on the second floor. The hotel's location is very good. It's a 10-minute walk from the rail station and close to the city centre too. Christophe and the staff are friendly and helpful.

We were very happy with our 2 night stay. We had two bedrooms connected by a bathroom which worked very well. Location is terrific - close to the train station and to the shopping streets. There is a host of eateries nearby. The decor is modern and very clean and the room is well heated (it was a bit warm at night) and quiet.

Wi-fi cost 2 euros per hour. Breakfast was excellent catering to many tastes. The stairs to our room could be an issue for the elderly as they were quite narrow.

We had a 3 night break at this hotel with our 2 teenage daughters. We booked a family room which we were pleased to discover was actually two separate rooms with a large interconnecting bathroom (some family rooms just squeeze extra beds into the same size room). The hotel is within central Bruges about a 10 min walk to the main markt (belltower) square. Continental Breakfast was included and the service could not have been better. One criticism would be that the room was noisy from the room above so if I stayed again I might ask for a top floor room, but other than that the room was lovely. Parking is available for €3·50 per day at less than a10 min leisurely stroll away at Centrum station so would use this rather than the one across the road at €8·50 a day.

Room Tip: Request a top floor room.

The hotel staff was extremely helpful answering questions, making calls to confirm tours, recommending restaurants for great meals. Our room was on the street but the double windows kept it very quiet. The bed was comfortable, the breakfast was plentiful. Overall a perfect place to fall asleep at the end of a very bust day of sightseeing.
