“Cheap base for Bruge trip.”
Reviewed December 8, 2013

We stayed at this hotel over the last weekend. We were a group of three (Mum and Dad and daughter of 23 years) visiting Bruges fro the Xmas Market, and the room proved a great base for our trip.
Breakfast was great, lots of good quality ingredients for the typical continental breakfast of croissant, breads, spreads, cheeses and meats.
However, the trip was somewhat marred by the fact that there were problems with the plumbing on our first night! The toilet was blocked and despite our best efforts, we couldn't unblock it. When I reported the issue the following morning, it turned out there was a problem affecting 3 other rooms and the plumber had been called! He soon fixed the issue.
The only other drawback was the lack of any real water pressure in our shower and the fact that it was difficult to regulate. It proved just sufficient to wash properly, but would be improved by a pump.
Beds were really comfy though and the position of the hotel was no more than a 7 minute walk from the centre of Bruges.

Room Tip: Bring your own travel kettle if you want a cuppa in your room!

Stayed here end of November for 2 nights, very good hotel, clean, good amenities, central location and informative staff. Being a 2 star did not expect toiletries but they were provided, breakfast - good continental, room cleaned to high standard, very old building with modern rooms / bathroom. Would recommend for a weekend break.

A very convenient hotel for the centre of Bruges. It is small but with its own unique character and has unusual rooms with comfortable beds. The staff are very friendly and helpful. The breakfast is plentiful and varied. The hotel is good value for money and we have used it for a number of years now.

Apparently, the hotel had an error message when they had to charge my credit card for our one-night non-refundable stay. As it was a last minute booking (48h before our arrival), I emailed the hotel the day I booked the room to reconfirm my reservation. They answered back saying everything went through and didn't mention anything about any credit card issues.

It was just a shame that our first few minutes at the hotel were more of an interrogation. The woman at the reception threw a handful of lousy questions at me... like "Do you understand what non refundable means?", "Do you know that we should charge you right away?"... I used the hotel's online reservation system and didn't have any message telling me that my card didn't work! Besides, I showed up and honored my reservation. I could easily use my other card. I read a lot of positive comments about this hotel, especially about the man named Karel... but maybe we weren't lucky as we were welcomed by somebody else?!

Location-wise, the hotel has a good spot... close to the 24h public parking and main tourist points. The room was OK.. though I still find it expensive for it has to offer really. The charm is all about the beams... The toilet is as small as my closet. Impossible to move around, especially if you are with someone who is tall! The heating system is on and off.... they only put it on in the evening. Breakfast is ordinary. Nothing really special.

Bruges is a charming place to visit. Make it more memorable by choosing carefully where to sleep over as it makes the whole experience more wonderful.

Stayed two nights at the hotel, the staff was ver friendly and the overall atmosphere is great.
Stayed at a triple room, it had a few faults but nothing too serious.
Location is walking distance from the center, 10 min walk from the parking

Don't get put off with the old architecture and interior of the hotel - it's part of the Bruges charm. The room I stayed in is modern and comfortable. I stayed at the lower level, so that saves me the hassel of carrying some very heavy luggage up the stairs. Good breakfast area with a nice fireplace. Good modern facility with good strong wifi (enough to stream videos). I was confused when I enter the room because there's only two closet doors and nothing else. Turns out one of the closet door is the entry way into a bathroom! The downside is that the hotel light comes on automatically when someone is within the vicinity, so that makes coming in on a rainy October evening a bit eerily. The reception was off duty the evenings we stayed in, so you have to walk in the dark until you're completely in the middle of the lobby before it lights up - same goes for the lower floor rooms. I've reported a lost/stolen item in the hotel, but so far, the hotel is not responsive - other than that, a good stay (perhaps the atmosphere would be better in summer) - though beware of mosquitos - big ones, even in October!!
