“heart of the city quaint hotel”
Reviewed July 19, 2013

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the albert. quaint little hotel directly opposite the bus station but never experienced any noise during our stay and we were at the front in the attic room. this was up three flights of narrow (but not too steep) stairs. No lifts in this hotel.
We had breakfast included which was plentiful and we loved. buffet style.great array of cereals, breads, cheeses, yoghurts, small pastries etc which were kept well topped up. You sit where you want and the staff bring you tea, coffee, etc. The breakfast staff were fantastic!
The hotel is literally over the road from the centre of town and the start of the shops, restaurants etc! perfect location!
Overall a great little hotel for couples. we did not see any families during our stay but ideal for couples of all ages. Loved it. would recommend. would stay again!

This was our second stay and as we were coming by car this time and parking in Bruges is at a premium the underground car park entrance is just opposite the hotel. Very comfortable clean room. Good choice at breakfast. The owners were very friendly and helpful. An amazing choice of restaurants near by. The fact that our bedroom overlooked the bus station didn't subtract anything from our enjoyable stay.

A lovely hotel in a beautiful town. This hotel is so central for sightseeing and also the train station. Very nice rooms and although on main road its not too noisy at night. Excellent breakfast with a good variety that even satisfied our 2 vegetarians. All in all a very pleasant stay and would thoroughly recommend this hotel to anyone coming to Bruges.

Room Tip: Room 1 on ground floor has a wet room pod for the bathroom and our fellow travellers thought it a bi...

Hello, we would like to thank you for your nice comment and satisfaction overall.
thank you for your tip concerning the bathroom on the groundfloor
it is indeed compact but very suitable for one person, and all (wc, shower) is present inside..
the wet pod as you mentioned is also very hygienic
thank you for your stay with us
Kind regards,
Christoph

About 10 mins. walk from Train Station: Warm welcome on arrival: Room very pleasant & spotlessly clean. Just a little dated but most comfortable. Our Room overlooked the Bus Station which was a little noisy at times, but this ceased once the windows were closed. There are few buses (If any) after about 10pm so even if the windows are open there should be little or no disturbance. The Albert is well placed for all that Bruges has to offer and if one wishes to travel further afield the Bus & Train are clearly handy. Breakfast is served in a pleasant dining room and has a good selection available. The owners are very friendly and helpful and happily give advice and guidance as required. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay which will be our first choice should we wish to return.

I arrived early to the hotel and my room wasn't ready, Christoph told me it would be ready in an hour so he made a suggestion for lunch, when I returned the room was ready and he even had my luggage in the room. Bed was comfortable. Breakfast was good and plentiful. On the the day I left, Christoph even found me an earlier train to Amsterdam than the train station attendant had given me. Overall very pleased with my stay and would book there again.

Room Tip: Had a lot of stairs to climb, so traveling with big luggage could be difficult. But nothing impossib...

Myself and m husband stayed here last year and it was lovely. The room was small but very clean and tidy and ideal as we were out all day and evening, so it was a great place to rest our heads after a busy day sightseeing.

Breakfast was simple but plentiful and typically what you would expect, with lovely breads, cheeses and cooked meats.

The hotel was probably a 15 minute walk into Bruge, but with so many things to see and coffee shops to stop at the walk was lovely.

A very walkable distance form the train station as well.

Would use the hotel again.
