“Calm.....In Bruges”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 29, 2013

Agree with all the previous complimentary comments.....a clean small hotel within walking distance of the city centre(c. 15 minutes to the city gate), free wifi etc
Although there are no coffee making machines etc in your room you are only about 200 yards from a very well hidden Carrfour supermarket......where you can stock up for drinks/refreshments for your stay and return journey.
The hotels owner is charming and could not be more helpful.....speaks excellent English ......

Easy to find the Hotel using satnav and you are able to park your car in the large private secure garden.
Bruges is like a much smaller version of Amsterdam but without all the nasty bits and the crowds......the only thing we saw leaning out of a window was a labrador dog sunbathing it's head!!!
Enjoy your stay .....we did

Room Tip: We had room One.....tucked away around a corner on the ground floor....large double bed plus very la...

Nice hotel in a quiet part of the district. 20Min walk into the centre of town. We were 5 adults and one baby and the 2 bedroom accommodation was good. Nice bathroom and shower. We were on the top floor so a little climb but no problem. Host was very helpful and full of information about the things to see in town. Breakfast was good and enough to eat and drink. Several restaurants close by as well as a small supermarket. Good parking, nice garden.

Excellent host who spoke good English and was very helpful with his local knowledge. Clean hotel in a quiet location but only 5 minutes walk from local shops, pubs, restaurants etc
Good sightseeing location as only 20 minutes walk from Brugge Centre, but the busses run every 10 minutes.

A lovely large guest house on the outskirts of Bruges, set in a beautiful garden.

Our room was big and light with traditional furniture. It was very homely, and even had a little Christmas tree, complete with lights. The bathroom was larger than average and had a lovely big bath. Everywhere was very clean.

We realized on arrival that breakfast would be served too late for us, as we had to set off early to catch a ferry at Calais. At first, the landlord seemed a little thrown by our request to have a coffee and a light breakfast earlier than usual, but he said that he would ‘see what he could do’. In the morning we were thrilled to smell freshly baked bread as we went downstairs, and then to realize that he had specially prepared a full breakfast for us. We had a wonderful breakfast and especially enjoyed the delicious pastries and croissants. We really appreciated his kindness in doing this for us.

We would definitely return and recommend this establishment to others.

The Gasthof is a great little hotel - has the feel of a guest house but with the practicality of a hotel. The room we had was spacious, nicely appointed very clean and comfortable - a few little touches that they had included made the room feel warm and welcoming. Hans is really nice there to meet and welcome you in, gives you a quick reference of main attractions on a map that he gives you - he is really friendly and helpful without being invasive. Location is a 15-20 minute walk to the centre of Bruges in a residential street. It is pancake flat so as long as you are ok with walking its a very easy stroll, just far enough outside to feel its a break from hustle and bustle of the city when you return. Breakfast is ample, fresh and perfect (for our taste) to start the day. Hans is there to give you coffee and tea as you need. Overall it's just rights for a visit to Bruges - on site parking - saw lots of people lunging suitcases on cobbled streets for city centre hotels- don't do it this hotel is a much better choice. Only suggestion Hans - tea / coffee making facilities in the room - a nice little thing especially in the winter - when we arrived back after an all day in the cold a sit down and cup of tea would have been nice before we set off back out for the evening - but that's a minor issue in a otherwise really good experience! Thanks added to a lovely trip to Bruges!

A lovely hotel tucked a 20 minute walk away from the centre of Bruges.

Upon arrival the owner Hans greets you personally and gives directions to all attractions.

The walk into the town is easy and we felt very safe, finding everyone friendly and helpful.

There was only me and my partner but the only available room was the family room. As parents ourselves I would like to point out that the rooms were of a high standard and in immaculate condition. There were 2 bedrooms and an en suite shower room, giving plenty of space and privacy when travelling with younger ones. There was also a tv/dvd player with a couple of english channels. The beds were also all "proper" beds, unlike some hotels which only provide sofabeds or pull-outs. I would definately bring my children to this hotel.

Hans, the owner was always ready to help, a great host.

Breakfast is served in the breakfast room. The usual food was available, croissants, cereal etc and a decent coffee.

Bruges was a beautiful city with many bars and restarants, I will definately travel here again.

Room Tip: If travelling here from England I would like to point out that the duty free shops as you first arri...

If you want a quiet, private, small B&B then this is the place for you. This was our first time in Bruges and the welcome we received from Hans was perfect. He gave a quick summary of the best bits in the town, the easiest way to get into the town centre and spoke perfect English! Location is about a 10min walk form the city walls and a further 5-10 to the centre. Car parking was a must for us together with a competitive B&B rate.
Room was on the first floor and was perfect, really clean, tidy and spacious. Good sized and varied breakfast in the morning - will definitely be booking up again!
