“Perfect!”
Reviewed May 1, 2014

My friends and I are staying at Albert 1 for 3 nights and this is our last night that I cannot wait to write a review to recommend this little lovely hotel in Brugge to other travelers.

The hotel is just less than 15 minutes walk from Brugge train station and close to city centre. Several restaurants are just across the street. The room may be a bit small for 3 people but it is clean and bright. The staff are very nice, friendly and helpful. As we need to leave very early next morning and do not have time to have breakfast, the manager are so nice to offer packed breakfast for us to eat on the train.

Actually I feel a bit sad not to be able to have breakfast at the hotel because the breakfast is great!

We, my wife and I and my friend and his wife, stayed here from 14th to 18th of April. It is an easy, pleasant walk from the railway station and we received a warm, helpful welcome from the manager when we arrived at the hotel. He could not have been more helpful, he gave us good advice about where to go and where to eat. The staff were also models of helpfulness. The breakfast was excellent with plenty of choice and variety. I particularly enjoyed the coffee. The rooms were comfortable and well equipped. I would have not hesitation in revisiting this hotel and hope that we will have the opportunity to do so. The location could not be bettered,

We recently (early April 14) spent 4 nights in Bruges staying at the Albert 1 Hotel.
We travelled by train and walked the short distance to the hotel easily in about 10 minutes. The hotel is well placed being only a 5-10 minute walk to the City centre. Several restaurants are conveniently located very nearby. Bruges itself is magical and a wonderful place to spend a few days and ideally suits people who like walking. There are plenty of cafes/bars to idle the time away with a coffee or a beer.
The hotel itself is compact and clean and tidy without being over fussy. Our room was well equipped with a good sized bathroom with bath & shower. The bed was very comfortable and the room was quiet and peaceful. Breakfast was plentiful and tasty consisting of cereal , fruit and continental type food. The staff were very welcoming. Overall impressions were excellent. Bruges is well worth a visit and why not stay at the Albert 1.

Room Tip: The hotel is on the main street opposite the bus station but is very quiet if you ask for a room at...

Stayed for 3 nights in Albert 1 Hotel in Brugge. The hotel is quite intimate and the rooms are very small. However, the convenient location and the helpfulness of the staff more than make up for this. The hotel was spotless and thoroughly cleaned every day. The hair dryer in my room did not work but this is something that may not have been reported as I forgot to tell the man at reception on leaving this morning. The stairwell was a bit scuffed but this is due to the fact that there is no lift and the cases hit off the walls. As there are only 3 stories and the staff bring cases up for guests, the lack of a lift would only be of concern to people with walking difficulties. This is not a luxury hotel but at the price we paid, it was more than worth it. I would recommend it to anybody and would definitely stay there again.

I would like to extend my warmest gratitude to Christoph at Albert 1 hotel who really looked after us during our stay. It was my fiancee's 30th birthday so I treated her to a trip to Bruges, staying at Albert 1 made the trip that extra bit special. Fantastic location close to all the main sights (10 min), train station (15 min), beautiful rooms with free wifi and breakfast included. I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone wanting to visit this wonderful city.

Room Tip: Our room was next to a busy road but could not hear a thing due to the double window noise exclusion...

We have visited Bruges 3 times in recent years stopping at the Albert 1 firstly then an hotel more to the centre of the Town. We choose the Albert 1 again for this visit because its location( walking distance from the train station) and the short walk to all the main area's of Bruges. The add attraction for my wife is the large Saturday market on the nearby square. The hotel rooms have been updated from our first visit, they are of a reasonable size for a retired couple with plenty of heating if required to keep the old bones warm. All the hotel Staff are fantastic with Christine serving breakfast doing an outstanding job of making you feel welcome each morning. We will visit Bruges again and will look forward to stopping at the Albert 1 again.
