Fantastic stay in Bruges at Hotel Patritius. The room is decent enough size and was quaintly decorated. The bed was comfortable and facilities fine.

Location is great. Really less than five minute walk to Market Square.

Breakfast was delicious. Simple selection but all great produce which made it tasty and memorable. Good breads, cheeses and meat selection.

The owners are kind and very helpful. Would definitely recommend here to others!

The location was wonderful for walking around town and the included breakfasts were perfect; the highlight for me was the unlimited use of the fancy espresso machine. Hotel Patritius had a lovely yard with tables and chairs and lounge chairs. The hotel also had a library room with comfy couches; we used it to plan our day. I loved the birds and staircase as well.

Patritius is one of a consortium of several small hotels in Bruges. It has been an inn for over a century and breakfast is served in a beautiful 17th century drawing room. Your hosts live in the carriage house behind the hotel, which is really more like a B&B, given the hotel has just 16 rooms. Breakfast includes freshly cooked eggs with a variety of continental fare, more than adequate for my tastes.

The room we occupied was quite attractive and comfortable, with a view of the garden area between the hotel and the carriage house, where guests have a pleasant place to relax after a day around Bruges. Room size wasn't large, but was quite comfortable, with perfectly fine linens and amenities. The room also has unobtrusive AC, although we didn't need it except to air out the room when returning in the afternoon. The only downside was that the window without a screen was easy to open and the window with a screen was very difficult to open (I only figured out how to open it after a mosquito has gotten in and nailed me).

Location is superb, far enough away from town center to be quiet, but close enough to get there in a short walk. You can also walk a short distance down to the old circular canal surrounding the city to check out the windmills. We found taxi service from the train station to be very easy, and metered cabs ensure you aren't abused financially (about 10 euros from station to Patritius, well worth it considering the distance is about a mile over cobblestone streets).

If you want to rent a bike for an extended period, there is a natural covered area leading through the hotel building where you can leave it overnight ... the bikes we rented had an integrated locking system and well-maintained shift mechanism. The only trick for bike riding is paying attention to the one way streets as given on the city map. I recommend a bike ride along the canal out to Damme at a minimum (at a casual pace, with stopping, no more than 3 hours round trip). I also recommend the bell tower/museum that you can climb for a small entrance fee ... just get there around 9:30am after breakfast at Patritius to avoid spending time in line, which will become quite lengthy as the tourists begin pouring into town later in the day.

I would cheerfully book this hotel again. It isn't a 5 star accommodation and doesn't try to be, but is well appointed, is an excellent value, and has a fantastic location.

Room Tip: I didn't ask for any particular room, and suspect rooms are generally allocated first come first...

Nice hotel in convenient location but away from busy street noise. Onsite laundry facility was a great perk since we were traveling for a longer period. Simple but very good breakfast included was great too.

This hotel is located less than a 5 minute walk away from the Market Square in Bruges.

Our room was small but the beds were comfortable, and the air conditioning worked perfectly, as did the wi-fi.

The owners were very friendly as was their dog 'Fellini' who enjoyed hanging out in the hotel garden with us. The garden is very nice by the way, with tables and chairs and flowers.

The breakfast spread is good, with eggs available and lots of breads, pastries and cereals.

A charming, little family run hotel located in a quiet street, but very close to the main attractions - The Markt, The Bell Tower and so on. Rooms are nice, with enough space and a wonderful atmosphere, with wooden floors and walls with flower motives. We came to experience the fairy tale like atmosphere from this wonderful city and the hotel was part of the experience. The small garden is great for having a coffee, the staff was very friendly. We enjoyed very much our stay at this hotel and would highly recommended.
