Excellent location in the centre of Bruges (we walked from the train station which takes about 20 mins). Super-friendly owners who greeted us by name. Large, bright, airy, room with king sized bed. Clean and very comfortable. Breakfast is delicious and served to your room each morning at your nominated time. There is a small boutique restaurant downstairs that we can also recommend. The owner is the chef and they serve great local or french inspired 3 course meals for 35 euro per person.
Only one down-side to the room: the bathroom is not seperate so not a good idea if you are shy!

Room Tip: The mediterranean room is the best. It is upstairs and a bit quiter because doesn't face onto the street.

The owners are lovely. The location is fantastic. The aroma drifting up to the rooms from their restaurant is wonderful. Sadly we did not get a chance to eat there, it was packed every night. But it did smell great!

The room is clean and nice sized. The rest I have to say is pretty average. The beds are very hard which you may love (I did not, but my boyfriend did). Because of a previous review of the hotel we were warned about the "pillows" that they have so we brought our own. We were very glad we did. They are more like a decorative toss pillows, not something you would actually use to sleep on. The breakfast is nice but not great as some other reviewers state, and it does not vary from day to day... soft boiled egg and an assortment of bread with plain yogurt. It is very nice however that it arrives in your room and you can eat privately instead of like many B&Bs with a communal breakfast area.

We stayed in the Marine Suite - a nice sunny room with large windows. To call it a suite however is a stretch to call the cubby hole sitting room a room at all. It is actually too small for 2 people to sit in there together and would have been better served if it was turned into a closet because there is none in the room. Instead there is a rack on the wall in the bedroom area with 4 hangers and an antique chest of drawers that you cannot open the top drawer of and has very shallow drawers that placing 2 t shirts on top of each other would preclude you from closing the drawer. On top of the dresser is a book that previous guests who have stayed in the room have filled out, which was nice to look through, and a nice personal touch. Additionally there is no night table by the bed, so no alarm clock in the room. My boyfriend uses a C-pap to sleep with, so he had to put it on the floor and under the bed so it would not get accidentally damaged. The hotel, like all of Bruges is an historic building, which also means not many electrical outlets, We anticipated this and brought our own multiple plug extension cord and we were glad we did.

There is a little refrigerator in the room which comes in handy. The TV may be bit too small for the room, but you do not go to Bruges to watch TV.

To no fault of the hotel, there happens to be a youth hostile a little bit down the road from Calis, and sadly we were woken up both nights because of drunken teenagers heading back to their hotel. Again not the hotel's fault, and there a number of hotels and bed and breakfasts in the area which all face the same issue, but something to keep in mind.

Room Tip: Marine Room is on the first floor street level front of the building. Drunk teenagers stay at the youth hostel further down the street, so be prepared for the noise.

The lady running the B&B was possibly the friendliest hotelier I have ever come across! She was so welcoming and down to earth, even feeling our New Years Day pain with a late breakfast (which is excellent by the way). The rooms are very clean and individually themed adding to a sense of occasion. Highly recommended.

This is one of the best B&Bs I've ever stayed at, a great choice for a trip to Brugge. The room was so eclectically decorated, I loved it! The owners are very sweet and were waiting on us for our late arrival. We parked at the train station and took the bus into the center of town, I can't remember if they had nearby parking. They serve an awesome breakfast in your room, which we loved. We ate every morning in our room's breakfast nook overlooking the street below. I would definitely stay here again and highly recommended to everyone!

Room Tip: We stayed in the first floor room, 4 post wooden bed and an 'out house' in the room for the toilet- sounds strange but it isn't trust me. It's a cool room!

We stayed at the Calis in September and what a little gem it is! The hosts were the friendliest and most accommodating people ever...There are just 4 themed rooms, we stayed in the "African" room...which was very comfortable. An amazing continental breakfast is served in the room which we thought was a nice touch. The Calis is situated in the historic centre of Bruges...just 100metres from the main square, an absolutely fabulous location...Highly recommended! The only reason I haven't rated this a 5 is that the toilet is in the bedroom! (partitioned off by a 5ft wall with no door) This is fine if you have no inhibitions but in my opinion there are certain things one likes to keep private!!
