We selected this hotel from choices in a Eurostar combined package.
The hotel is in a beautiful building, and the overall impression in all rooms is of elegance and style. The marble tiling in our bathroom was really lovely. Rooms are either canal side or garden view side. We had the latter, and the combination of lovely bed, heavy and lightproof curtains and amazing quiet led to 3 excellent nights sleep.
The location is at the far side (from the station) of Brugge. It will cost around 13 euro by taxi, but we subsequently used the excellent buses that stopped right outside the Hotel and took us to the station.
The breakfast was a good buffet, plus hot eggs and bacon and excellent pastries and breads. The dining room is a very pleasant room, and from the window seats one can see the world go by.
It is a short walk to the very centre of Brugge. But to get a wider choice of restaurants one can use the bus to get to and from the area beyond the concert hall area. We would highly recommend the Bistro Den Huzaar for a "splash out" meal. And the "Bean around the World" cafe almost opposite the entrance is a friendly place to get refreshments - but limited opening times.
So what are the limitations?
Wi-Fi is 5 Euro per hour.
There are no coffee making facilities in the room, and getting a jug of coffee was not advertised, although in fairness we did not ask.
Breakfast is the only meal offered, and there is no cafe.
We would stay here again without hesitation.
