Great value hotel in a good location.

We stayed here after the fiasco with the flights in England...

The staff at this hotel are extremely friendly and we used this hotel as a stop over between Calais and Amsterdam.

The room was very clean but after a while you could tell that it had been smoked in before and the smell began to stick to your clothes...

The breakfast was good and they even provided us with a residents pass to enable us to park on the street to avoid having to pay.

Very good 3* hotel, you can do a lot lot worse!!!

We stayed at the hotel by chance because we had all of our camping equipment with us ready for a holiday in Germany but were so tired we chose to stay in this hotel for our first night. On first impressions the hotel was incredibly comfortable, clean and the owner was informative and freindly.
We had a room which 3 of us slept in (3 single beds) and a separate room with a double.
They were clean, with ample storage and a television with english channels which was good!

The hotel is ideally placed, literally just of the centre. It had lots of shops and resturants and cafes ranging from the less expensive (about $7 for spaghetti and a drink) to the more expensive. The central square had lively entertainment which was ideal for the resturants who had the advatageous views of this.

The breakfast the next morning was very nice. We had a rang of fresh ham, cheeses, cereal, eggs, fruit and yoghurts etc.

We would go there again for the convenience and the friendly service.

I have been fortunate enough to stay at Hotel Albert numerous times, every year I think, since about 1997 and you could not find two better hosts than Christophe and Liesel De Poorter.
Their hotel is very welcoming visually and they themselves do everything they can to ensure their guests enjoy their stay. I have taken several ’new’ people at various times and all have been delighted with their visit.
The hotel is immaculately clean, the rooms comfortable and warm, and the breakfast very, very, tasty.
I am looking forward to my next visit, whenever that may be

Far from being the most lavish hotel i have ever staid in but by far the best value for money. Some times i really wonder what people expect from a hotel at this price!!

The location was superb, the hotel was very clean and room very spacious.

Breakfast was Ok, but with a wealth of superb eateries 5 minutes away this wasn't an issue.

The view wasn't great from the hotel, but thats no bad thing as the whole idea of visiting Brugge was to look around and not sit in the hotel all day.

The staff were all marvellous, when we go back to brugge I will definately stay here again

I stayed at the Hotel Albert 1 with my husband and 11 year old son for 2 nights in April. The location of the hotel offers a disappointing view, being across from a bus station, but I found it very convenient to catch a bus out of town or to walk into town, which is only a couple of blocks away. The hotel itself is very clean and nicely decorated. The rooms have double windows to shut out street noise, which it does exceptionally well as long as you don't open the windows. Breakfast was a treat! The staff was very helpful and offered advice and even discounts for area attractions. The only down side, besides the view of the bus station, was that there was a seasonal carnival across the street from us that was noisy into the night. Again, with the windows closed, the noise was greatly diminished, but sometimes I wanted the window opened for the fresh air. However, this minor point would not deter me from recommending the hotel. As long as you know what to expect in terms of location, view and noise, the rest of the experience is bound to please you. Pretty, clean rooms and a great bathroom were definitely worth the minor issues.

A lovely hotel, very cosy with excellent hospitality . The service was very friendly.
Very handy for seeing all the great sights of Bruges. Not too far to stagger either after sampling the fantastic beers.
