By the time we got to Bruges, after seeing Brussels and Ghent, the effect wasn't quite as startling as it might have been if we came here first. What was startling however was the hoards of people in the main square. It felt like a...More

A beautiful UNESCO destination if a tad touristy. Beautiful architecture, canals and sunsets. Try to get off the main drags and explore hidden alley ways and bars Full do locals relaxing of a weekend.

We stayed at the hotel Navarra which is very close to the market square, lovely hotel with some parking, expensive but so are most things in Bruges. The beer wall is worth a visit but beware it can get crowded. As has been said before...More

We drove a rental car into the Centre, be careful if you do because of pedestrians, bike riders and restricted streets. Parking is available but limited. The entire area is amazing and sooo worth a visit. Lovely stores, restaurants, historical buildings just go on forever....More

You definitely feel like a tourist comparing all the variations of the fixed price meals of mussels or burgers.

Hi! The Hotel name is Ibis Brugge Centrum. It is a part of the ACCOR Hotel group and you can book using their website. Do not confuse this hotel with another Ibis Hotel which is next to Brugge train station. Enjoy!
