We had a really warm welcome at the hotel and we immediatly felt welcome! The hotel is really good located so we were able to enjoy this wonderful city! Too bad that the room was bit small comparing with what we already had in other hotels in Belgium.For the rest all was really nice!

Stayed: November 2013, traveled with friends

My girlfriend and I stayed here for three nights from November 28th to December 1st. We were greeted by the owner (sorry, have forgotten her name although think it was Veronique) who was most welcoming. Our room wasn't ready when we arrived but that was due to us not letting her know when we would be arrive. She gave us a map and explained many of the sights to see and also gave us a discount card for places around Bruges. We were staying in the Chocolate Room which was light and airy and had a good view over rooftops and surrounding buildings. The hotel is very close to the Grotke Square and given that everything in Bruges is relatively compact it was the perfect place to stay. Breakfast was great although only managed to get up for it two out of three mornings as the Belgian beer helped me over sleep one morning. The hotel only has six rooms although is due to expand next year. We will hopefully be returning for the Christmas markets again next December and in all likelihood, to the same hotel. I would thoroughly recommend it.

Room Tip: The Chocolate Room was excellent, No issues at all.

We are just back from a lovely three nights in Bruges where we stayed at the Alegria. This is a lovely B&B in the heart of Bruges. Comfortable, clean, and a welcoming and warm reception. Veronique was very friendly, very knowledgeable about Bruges attractions, offered a lovely choice of goodies for the buffet breakfast, and we enjoyed our stay very much. We will return!! Thanks to Veronique and her family, and to Bruges for being such a beautiful friendly and interesting city.

Room Tip: We stayed in the Chocolate Room - lovely decor.

Highlights of the room were the bed and pillows which were extremely comfortable along with the bath. Nothing beats a big tub on a wet and grey day.
The breakfast which was plentiful & set in a very homely environment.

Ideally located within a few minutes walk from the main square.
Parking was a concern for us but not a problem for Alegra guests. There is a parking station within 50 metres of the hotel @ EUR $10 for 24 hrs.

Our room was high on the third floor which afforded a nice view across the old rooftops of the neighbouring buildings.

The only negatives being that the TV had limited channels and didn't hold a great picture. Not usually something that would bother me, but TV is a useful device during a cold wet windy day.
Another thing to note is that wifi is not available in the room but only in the breakfast and reception area.

This isa small boutique hotel with 6 rooms at present. Our room was extremely clean with two chairs and small table between and kettle for hot water. Tea and coffee was provided in room and chocolates on arrival. The bed was lovely with great linens. The pillows a tad plumb for me my my husband liked them. Two closets, no drawers but we just put our things on the bottom of the built in closet. The bathroom is very nice with a lovely bathtub. There was a small refrigerator in the bathroom room but it was quite inconvenient as it was place under the sink and you could not get close to use the miirror and sink easily; especially if you were short. The breakfast was wonderful with jams, breads, cereal, yogurt, hams and cheeses. Veronique would even make you an egg however you like it. She was very welcoming when we arrived and gave us tips on restaurants, etc. Our room had a garden view.

Room Tip: We had a garden room which was quiet and lovely to look out the window. There is a patio restaurant...

I was able to reserve a triple room (often hard to find) with a very reasonable rate and breakfast included so I was initially skeptical about the quality of the hotel that I would find. Hotel Alegria is a wonderful boutique hotel in a great location just minutes from the city center. The hotel is immaculately clean and our triple room was nicely decorated in warm brown tones. The room design is clever as the extra beds are all pullman beds that can retreat into the wall allowing it accommodate 2,3 or 4 people. We had plenty of room with good lighting, quality linens and toiletries. The bathroom was beautiful slate tile on the floors and walls with a unique open design where there was a shower curtain but no shower or bath stall. The lovely breakfast room was warm and inviting,decorated in soft colors. The breakfast was very good including fresh squeezed orange juice and made to order eggs. We found the owner a bit abrupt in her manner but in speaking to her during breakfast on our second day she commented that she was tired, she indeed seems to run the place by herself including an accessory shop next door. She allowed us to store our luggage both before check in and after check out. It is clear that great thought and pride goes into this hotel. Highly reccomemnded!!

A small hotel with a family feel within minutes of the Market Square. The room was not only reasonable but beautifully decorated, spotlessly clean with a great breakfast.
Veronique was a wonderful host and must be superwoman as she seems to do everything on her own.
Will definitely be returning and would recommend to everyone wanted to visit this magical city.
