Hotel Olympia Bruges
Ranked #58 of 97 Hotels in Bruges
Reviewed March 19, 2013

We visited this hotel for the fourth time on a Leger coach trip. The hotel is a 10-15 minute walk from the medieval centre but in a quiet location so you can get a good nights sleep. The room was spacious with plenty of storage space for your clothes. The double bed was very comfortable and there are spare pillows in the wardrobe if required. Bathroom looked a bit dated now as it is decorated in dark brown tiles. The bathroom had a bath and shower and the water was very hot which was great as it was very cold and snowy outside. Breakfast is on the first floor and is very good with the usual breads, cold meats, cheese, eggs, cereals etc. All rooms are on the ground or first floor and there is a lift if needed. The hotel does not do lunch or dinner but you can get soup or a toastie in the bar. There are plenty of eating places in Bruges. The bar is cosy and the prices for beer is only slightly higher than in town so you do not get ripped off. Lounge area quite large with plenty of comfy furniture. Staff are all excellent and very helpful, they all speak good English. If we were to travel independently to Bruges we would stay at this hotel.

I stayed here out of season so the hotel was very quiet, we were the only guests but the friendly owner made us feel very welcome, and made it clear that we could call her at anytime should we need any assistance. The hotel was clean.. the rooms comfortable. The location was great, just 5 minutes walk from the zand which has lots of bars and restaurants, and just 15 minutes to the historic market square with the belfry and other tourist attractions, museums etc would definitely stay there again and recommend it to anyone planning a trip to bruges in a slightly quieter location.

Stayed as part of coach group & was able to spend Armistice day in Ypres. The hotel only does breakfast but its within walking distance of restaurants & bars. The rooms are ok, clean with comfortable beds. Bathrooms are a little dated but serve the purpose. Nice bar area that closes promptly! Service is friendly. I would stay again

Just returned from the Newcastle united match in brugge,stayed in the hotel olympia. Nice old fashioned family hotel looks like its been recently updated inside. Room was a triple on ground floor spacious ,nice bathroom , decent size tv but no tea/coffe facilities. Clean and tidy . Breakfast was basic continental nothing flashy. Would recommend for a short stay in brugge as its slightly out the way (around 20 mins from main square)

This is an owner managed hotel and it shows. We were welcomed on arrival and were shown where we could park for free in streets behind the hotel - great benefit in a city!
Our room was basic but clean and reasonably comfortable and the continental breakfast was perfectly adequate. However, timed lights in the corridors were a bit archaic and a coat of paint would brighten things up.
Getting into the city could not have been simpler either via the railway station or under the railway itself, about 10/15mins in either direction
English appears to be spoken by all the staff, its a mandatory subject in schools, who were very helpful in all respects

We stayed at this hotel after leaving an Ibis Budget hotel in Brussels which we hated. Upon arrival staff were professional, friendly and very polite. Our room was clean and comfy, yes the decoration could be updated e.g the brown tiles in the bathroom but looks can be deceiving, this is a lovely place to stay. Parking is around the back of the hotel and cars are pretty safe. You can walk into town. It takes about 10-15 minutes leisurely walking to get to town and another ten minutes to get to the main square we walked every day but on the final evening there was heavy rain so the hotel staff arranged a taxi for us and the gentleman was very friendly. Although the Taxi meter clocked up a fee of 9 euros 20, the hotel had a deal with the taxi service and only charged us 7 euros. The hotel is easy to reach and a good location for exploring. Although we could hear other people talking when were in our room, there was no noise at night time and we had a good nights sleep throughout our stay. There is no kettle in the room but we ordered breakfast in the morning and enjoyed the continental buffet. Thank you for a lovely stay Olympia!

I have now used this hotel three times both as an independent traveller and as part of a coach party. The Olympia is a bit of a throw back really, harking back to the days when you had family run hotels which had excellent service at a good price but the decor is out of date by at least a couple of decades.

The Olympia is ideal as a base for those travelling about. It is ideally located to the central train station, without suffering noise polution and is only 10 minutes walk from the centre of Bruges. The rooms are basic and the hotel has no restaurant, but if you can't find a restaurant in Bruges then you are doing something wrong. As I say the service is excellent with the staff willing to engage you in conversation in English (or Flemish) and offer handy hints for places to visit.

Breakfast is the standard continental fair, which can be a bit of a bun fight. Overall I have rated the hotel Very Good because it has that charm that you can not quite put your finger on and it offers good value for money.

Room Tip: The hotel key wallet offers discounts to local museums and tourist attractions.
