Staff was ok, Nothing really special. Our room was advertised as Charming 25 to 30 meters square. The 1st room we were directed to may have met this size, however it was partially subterranean. The window level met at the sidewalk and the traffic noise of cars passing on the cobble street was quite loud. We requested to be moved...

Average stay. Booked this hotel looking at its positive reviews but did not find it up the mark. The location is decent , as it is located next to a beautiful canal & walking for 5-7 mins gets you to the Markt Square. The hotel definitely needs refurbishment. The elevator switches dont function properly. The rooms were average , however...

Nice big rooms with huge comfortable beds, and very friendly staff. The evening barman in particular was very helpful and friendly, and we sat out in the rear garden for a few drinks after we returned to the hotel in the evening. The hotel itself is located only a few minutes from the main square, and on one side overlooks...

We stayed for 3 nights in a room overlooking the garden. Warm, cosy and quiet, comfortable bed, HUGE bathroom with a great shower. All staff were friendly and polite, the hotel bar is great and it's a 10 min walk at the most to the market square. Excellent!

Lovely room in this hotel - plenty of room, large bed and spacious bathroom. A good position for accessing all parts of central Bruges. We went room only and had meals in the many places around. You had to keep logging into the wi-fi which was a bit annoying, Nice and quiet, and lovely and warm.

Old building needs some minor repairs (front door handle broken, wood work chipped, needs a power wah outside etc). Reception staff very helpful, room large, nice and clean, 5 minute walk from the square. Parking in a garage 2 blocks away. Next time I will look at the Realis near the square.

- Recommended for a quiet weekend away - Close, but not too close, to the tourist heavy areas - Friendly, knowledgable staff - Lovely restoration - Bathroom could use a facelift, but room was otherwise classic and clean - I enjoyed the breakfast selection, but my husband thought it could have used some modernizing

Converted from old canal side houses this is a lovely hotel with beautiful rooms overlooking a canal. Centrally located it is a perfect base for exploring Brugges. Helpful, friendly and pleasant staff who make the stay even better. We had room 104 which was first floor and spacious with canal view. The cobbled street below did provide some traffic noise...

This is a beautiful hotel! Feels like you are being welcomed into someones exquisite, elegant home over looking the canal. The location is ideal, there are a few cafes just down the street, and you are a couple of blocks from the main tourist area. So it is quiet and quant, without being far out of town. We were travelling...

Disappointing! Was recommended by friends. I had a single room on the groundfloor, close to the reception. Street noise, noise of the reception... I found it rather expensive, not all personnel were friendly. The whole thing left me with an impressopn of "we want your money (as much as we can possibly get) but don't care much about anything else"....
