Took my wife here for our anniversary, on the recomendation of a friend who's stayed here half a dozen times. Veronique is the most perfect host,and the hotel is a fabulous mix of old and modern. Can't wait to return and will most certainly stay here again. Will be telling all who will listen about it and encouraging them to go.

Room Tip: Rooms overlooking court yard garden offer best views.

I just came back from a lovely trip to Bruges and I would recommed Hotel Alegria to everyone. The hotel is 3 minutes walking from the main square, so it's really close to everything. My room (chocolate room) was big and beautiful, with charming view from the two huge windows!! Tea, coffee and water are provided in the room. The bathroom was big as well, with nice bathtub, and everything looked new and very clean. But the best thing of the hotel is definitely the staff: so friendly and willing to help. They have been wonderful, offering us any kind of help and informations. The best service I've ever had in a hotel, I really felt welcomed! (And breakfast is delicious too!!)

Room Tip: They have big rooms, with wonderful view on the garden, and smaller room with view on the street.

My boyfriend and I stayed here for three nights December 27th to December 30th 2013. Can't recommend it enough, charming, welcoming hostess. Quiet comfortable room with en suite. Great view. Tasty breakfast all good produce. Excellent location. Good value for money and Veronique was always ready with local advise. Our first to Bruges, will definitely be going again and will stay at the Hotel Alegria. Bruge is an amazing place

Pros. Great position without a ridiculous price, as were most in this area. We needed to be close due to a recent accident limiting my ability to walk far
Room very comfortable , service excellent, very comfortable bed, a safe in room.
Outlook, old quaint buildings , as expected in an old picturesque city.
I qualify average value as for time of year and Its competition but good for location.
Cons. Lot of stairs with a healing broken leg, (a lift is planned),

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.
