Good if you want a quiet night's sleep

Posted Jul 23, 2014
We booked the Hotel Gulden Vlies for a quick overnight trip to Bruges. The hotel itself is a little old and faded, and we were surprised to find that the en-suite bathroom was a box built into the corner of the room with a sliding 'flap' as a door that did not entirely close it off! But it was clean, had an old-fashioned charm, the shower was good and the bed was comfy. Breakfast was a cold buffet which suited us fine. The hotel is a good 10 minutes walk from the city centre hustle and bustle. We quite liked this as it meant that the area was quiet when we wanted to sleep and the walk in was very easy. For the price, I would go back. Beware though, we booked through Expedia and the price quoted (on which we based the booking) was not the same as the price charged upon leaving. Also there was a one euro eighty tax per person added on, which all meant that the stay was about £10-12 more expensive than anticipated.

Excellent place for that money! To town centre 10 minutes walk. Free car parking, it needs to be changed every 4 hrs but helpful staff did it for us! Very nice continental breakfast! Very helpful staff (help with luggage, gave free map and some recommendations on restaurants). Lovely atmosphere! Very good internet connection in the rooms! We get top floor room, but view was amazing! Definitely recommend and stay again!

Cosy, charming & friendly

Posted Dec 11, 2012
Pros: Friendliness/helpfulness of staff. Quality of breakfast. Nice and warm.
Cons: Walls a bit thin. No proper doors on bathrooms. Electricity intermittent at times.
Location: 10 mins walk from the centre of Bruges.
Very accommodating owners, very helpful with recommendations and tips for exploring the city. Hotel is very charming and cosy - the only thing that is a bit odd is that the bathrooms don't have proper doors. Instead, they have a kind of slide-door which serves as more of a flap than a door, so it's not the most private thing in the world. However, as long as you know the person you're staying with pretty well, this isn't really a problem.

Great hotel in a great city

Posted Aug 29, 2012 on Hotels.com
My husband and I spent 3 nights at the Gulden Vlies hotel Brugge and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. I was initially slightly apprehensive about the property as it was only a 2star but was very pleasantly surprised when we arrived. It is very clean and stylishly decorated, the room we had was very quiet with a pleasant view out towards the city. Breakfast which was included in the price was also great, Continental, but all we wanted. All in all we had a great stay, the staff were very helpful and pleasant.
