My partner and I have been traveling around Europe and had saved Bruges for our last location, so we’ve been in all kinds of hotel rooms for roughly the same price. The plus points first and foremost are the location- a fairly quiet street but puts you in the center of Bruges. I think it depends what side of the hotel and what day you stay, but we were woken at 6am with lots of beer barrels being delivered to the restaurant across the street. Sounds like they’re in the room with you!
We were delighted to have a lift in the hotel. Really didn’t expect that and it very much helps out when you’ve been up and down so many flights of stairs with luggage. Warmish welcome with plenty of advice of where to go and a map, and where we could park the car.
The rooms are a decent size but were very tired and if I’m honest, pretty depressing. Wallpaper was peeling and duct tape was used in a few areas of the bathroom. We couldn’t sit in either of the chairs in the room as they were both very fragile and wobbly. Decent little TV with English speaking channels which was great. We liked the bathroom and were fine with the weird shower thingy. It seems to be the standard in many places in Europe and there’s a knack to it. Once you know that, it’s easy enough, so we didn’t mind. Good towels and Dove in the bathroom.
The breakfast was lovely and fresh. Warm rolls and breads with ham and cheese etc. As much tea or coffee as you like. Really nice breakfast room too.
The biggest issue we had with the hotel is a sensitive one, which I was wondering if anyone else had had, but it seems not from the other reviews. Both my partner and I were eaten alive with flea bites while we were there. Both nights. If it had been one of the days etc, I would have considered it to be somewhere else we’d been, but we got them over night. Also, I found a ‘plug in’ repellent in our room when I went to plug in my phone charger. Thought it was an air freshener at first, but I don’t think so. I could be totally wrong, and I hope so, but our bites co-inside with us sleeping in the hotel.
