We booked this hotel as the other hotels we normally stay in in Brugge were booked because of a public holiday. The hotel is very pretty and authentically old which is what we wanted as we had friends from USA with us where nothing is more than 100 years old. I booked a parking space with the hotel in the underground car park round the corner which is necessary as the car park is very busy and parking in the street difficult. The staff were more than helpful and booked a restaurant in the town as they do not have one. The position is great with just a short walk to the main square and all the sights you would want. The bedroom was very small and had a lovely bathroom which was bigger than the bedroom. The bed was comfortable but small and the bathroom had a shower and a bath and nice towels and shampoo, soap etc. We had no trouble with the wifi which we got in our room. The breakfast which was included in the price was excellent with eggs, bacon, cheese, ham, rolls, cereals, fruit etc which is the only reason I have given the rating for value good. We never even turned on the TV as there is too much to see in the town before you go to bed dog tired. We had no window in the room and only a door with a small opening above it , it had a heavy curtain floor to ceiling which was very difficult to close and let the light in through the gap. Make sure you take the boat ride round the town. Go to the chocolate museum, Buy lots of choccy but beware of the cost of linen and table cloths as very expensive in some shops. If you are not a wimp with strange foreign foods and prepared to try something different order the moules frites (mussels and chips) in a white wine sauce and have hot chocolate to drink. I have marked the swimming pool and restaurant with one star as they don't have either and trip adviser do not offer a suitable alternative.
