Considering that this establishment is a 2 star hotel, it did provide a comfortable and clean bed (very soft, 2 twin beds as a double) to sleep in and a traditional continental breakfast (breads, cheese, meat, hard boiled eggs, and basic cereal) that is served between 8:30-10:30am. The location is ideal and just outside of the centre of the city in a quieter area. The market square (8 minutes), train station (10 minutes), and the rest of Brugge is a short walk away.
The rooms are minimalistic in design, which was fine. However, the pictures posted on the website are quite deceiving, as not all of the bathrooms have been updated.
We were in room 8 (basic double room), which was located down the hallway from the other rooms. This was fortunate because the walls are thin and you can hear noises from all over the hotel from your room. We were also facing away from the road, so there was minimal outside noise. This hotel does not have air conditioning, however the windows could be propped open to allow in a nice breeze.
Our main concern was the bathroom (which was basically a closet stuffed with the fixtures of a bathroom). If you were a bit larger you would have great difficultly manoeuvring around. As well, it NEEDS to be updated with newer fixtures and have the tiles replaced (has a bit of mold). The shower curtain was stained along the bottom because it sits in the water, as it drains extremely slowly (even the sink). I feel like the cleaning staff should have realized that the drains did not work.
Overall, the service was fine and they were able to print train tickets out for us which was very nice! For our price point this was a decent place to stay at.
