Great location, very friendly staff, good breakfast. The room was ok but didn't have a wow-factor. The beds were very comfy though! Bathroom could do with a little upgrade.
Overall it was a good hotel, perfectly located, to explore the beautiful city of Brugge!

This hotel is ok but the room was older and noisy. A lot of noise early in the morning. (Cleaning at 9 am in the other rooms.) The bar is good and very fun in evening. This could be a great hotel if they do some remoddeling of the rooms. They have parking (that also needs an update) at a good fee.

I stayed here for three nights just recently and booked it less than two weeks before departure, mainly based on the reviews of other users and the very reasonable price.

The hotel is located on Langestraat which is one of the main roads into central Bruges (although quiet) and is at most a 10 min walk to the main town square. It’s well located for the price, any further into the centre and you’d be paying a lot more.

I paid the extra €15 and went for a club room over a classic room. Totally worth it. If you can do it, then you must. The club rooms appear to situated towards the rear of the hotel and have private balconies, albeit with a view of the car park but it’s your own outside space nonetheless. The rooms are modern in design with a very contemporary feel (just to my taste). Club rooms come with air conditioning; I believe that most of the classic rooms don’t have this so if you’re planning a summer visit then it would be worth baring this in mind.

Other features of the room: nice big double bed (not two singles pushed together), in room safe for valuables, umbrella for use if you need it out sightseeing, slippers, tea & coffee making facilities, extra pillows, nice large desk to work at, a separate table & two leather chairs if you want to eat in the room, nicely appointed bathroom with a large shower with rainwater shower head.

I had a peak at a couple of classic rooms when walking down the corridors, they appeared to be more classically decorated with floral designs and weren’t as large as the club rooms.

All-in-all well worth the upgrade – even if for the air con alone.


The hotel in general is lovely. Nice airy public spaces, the staff are all very friendly from the receptionists, the housekeepers and the bar man (Yannick) in the attached Bazaar bar and the ladies who tended the breakfast room in the morning.

Onto breakfast – included in the price of my stay, which I believe is standard with all guests. Breakfast was nice; although other reviewers have raved about how good it is, using words like ‘excellent’ and ‘outstanding’. I think it was good, but wouldn’t go any further than that. There was the usual array of hotel breakfast items on offer: scrambled ‘eggs’, bacon, cereals, various breads for toasting, yoghurt's, cold meats & cheeses for the continental types, croissants and some pastries. The one thing conspicuous in its absence was fresh fruit. There were three choices of tinned fruit, but nothing fresh which I found odd. The coffee was excellent though (I really like my coffee) which is served to your table by a staff member (or tea if you prefer)

The breakfast room looks out onto an enclosed courtyard with a nice fish pond and a water fountain, very pleasant.

Attached to the same part of the building is a small swimming pool, which looked nice but I didn’t use it – no cozzie.

Every night of my stay I had a drink in the bar which is attached to the hotel. This is a nice & relaxed space to unwind and have a drink after dinner in the main town square and is manned by a friendly guy called Yannick. Drinks are reasonably priced compared to the town square and if you want you can drink outside in the courtyard of the hotel – exterior lounge chairs & patio heaters for comfort.

Locally to the hotel there are numerous restaurants of varying types and ethnic origins. One that seemed to be popular is De Pepermolen which seemed to be well frequented every time I walked past it – quite pricey though. The main restaurant hub however is around the main square, which really is only a 5-10 min walk at most.

There is also a small supermarket just down the road from the hotel called Smatch – if you need any supplies or to stock up on local beer & chocs before you head home (at a fraction of what you’ll pay in the gift shops)

I opted to use the hotels car park for convenience and at €14 per 24 hours, is actually quite reasonable. I think there are other car parks locally as well as on street parking outside the hotel, however I’m unsure of the cost or how long you can park there.

The hotel is great, it really is – however...there are a few things that can be done to make it even better. Fresh fruit at breakfast, little things like real glasses in the club rooms instead of disposable plastic ones.

I would definitely stay here again, without a doubt. It’s a great hotel, just needs a little refinement in a couple of small areas.

Room Tip: Club rooms appear to be towards the rear of the hotel, so if you want a street view you may have to...

Just come back from 5 great days at the Flanders hotel. From the start the reception staff were smiley and very helpful. Had a room above the small swimming pool overlooking the fishpond courtyard which had everything you could want. The beds were soft and comfortable, kettle big bathroom with a bath, TV with quite a few English channels. 5 minute walk to burg past several antique/2nd hand shops, bus stop outside to take you to the train station. The bar has a good array of drinks with a happy hour from 16:30 a lot half price, breakfast has a good selection of cheese, meats, bacon eggs, fruit,yogurt, bread and pastries. Would definitely stay here again.

Stayed here for a weekend in March 2014. Hotel location is great, on a quiet street but only a few minutes walk from the Markt and other city centre locations. We walked there from the train station on arrival, took about 20 mins but a good way to get a taste of the city.

Check-in was efficient and receptionist offered good tips on places to see (and also avoid).

Our double room was perfectly fine for a couple of nights. Comfortable bed, tea and coffee facilities, free wifi, nice bathroom with shower. We had a slightly odd balcony attached which was shared with the room next door, but would be nice to relax on in warmer weather.

Breakfast buffet provided was of a good standard and served til 11am, usual European options of pastries, cold meats, rolls, cereals, eggs. Coffee or tea brought to table.

Checkout was super-quick, considering we still had to pay the bill.

Our only slight complaint about our stay was the early hour at which housekeeping started cleaning rooms, which can disturb one's rest a bit; we could hear staff talking to each other and moving around in the corridor outside about 9am, both mornings we were there. However, it's something that's certainly not unique to this hotel.

All in all, would recommend.

We booked the Flanders hotel for my birthday as the reviews were good versus the price. We weren't disappointed our room (a club) was huge, bathroom was really nice although I would have liked a bath but know this isn't a European standard. The shower was really nice with a big waterfall shower head. We were lucky enough to have a balcony although it did look over the car park it's always nice to have access to your own outside space. Breakfast was a bonus here and great with lots of choice from yummy crispy bacon and scrambled eggs to pastries and fruit. The hotel is about 10 minutes walk from the main square and other sites but quite a trek from the train station which was fine for us but might be worth considering bus or taxi for those less mobile. Overall really happy with the hotel.
