Reviewed 8 December 2017

Where to start… quirky, cozy, full of atmosphere, good location, EXYREMELY nice crew, brilliant breakfast… what more to say? Well, in our case De Barge was just a lucky shot right out in the dark. Spotted the pics, saw a few reviews, booked – and thoroughly enjoyed our four nights there. Of course, Bruges is a beautiful place, too, which might have contributed some to the very good memories we have, and hang on to. We arrived late due to bad weather at Frankfurt airport, and some hassle with the trains, too. The hotel communicated very nicely to ensure us that there will be someone to meet us, and if not, they sent us everything starting from the front door code. Excellent service, which went on in a very nice welcome at finally arriving. We had a fabulous meal at the hotel restaurant, one of the best during our stay in Bruges, and a very good night's sleep. I went out for an early jog next morning, and realised how close we were to central Bruges, a definite bonus. So, let me tell you some about the hotel. As the name suggests, it is really a barge, in the canal right south of the very centre. The rooms are small, but very cozy in their maritime setting. Lovely bed, cute bath, but the shower was, well, quirky might be an understatement. Working and functional, to some part, however. But fear no, De Barge will close early January for a full six week re-buidl of the piping, pumps etc, so by Valentines I would anticipate even the showers to work properly. The cleaning was excellent, as was the breakfast. When you book (N.B. I didn't say if…), keep in mind that the hotel doesn't run a 24/7 reception. So, I certainly do recommend De Barge for your Bruges visit. If you arrive by train (1.5 hrs approx from Brussels airport), don't bother taking a taxi, the walk is just some 300-400 yards, very easy to find: turn right at leaving the station, and keep right until you end up at De Barge. Have a lovely stay!

The stay is original and adds to the Bruges experience. Breakfast is phenomenal and the location is perfect. You're just outside of the Old Town so everything is by foot!

The room has a great layout eventhough its small. The morningview is terrific.

Stayed here for 2 nights on our recent visit to the beautiful city of Bruges. To be honest the walls were paper thin and we could here every word being spoken in both adjoining rooms, and also all toilet and shower activity. The one saving grace was we couldn't fault the breakfast. There are no tea or coffee making facilities in the room, these are a chargeable extra. The room we booked was supposedly a superior room, we would say it was very basic at best

A hotel on a barge in a very nice area of Brugges with lots of trees and parks. Very welcoming staff, making the checkin experience very personal and nice. The rooms themselves are a bit quirky as would be expected from such a hotel. Quite a bit of noise in our room, oddly configured as well making it a bit cramped and awkward at times. That being said, we were not expecting a generic hotel, but something more memorable, even romantic. We were not disappointed. It was very reasonable, great location with a very good Breakfast. No complaints, except they were fully booked the next day and we only got one night!

Room Tip: Views in the end rooms are great.
