It's ALL about the view!
Posted Dec 16, 2016
This hotel is right in the middle of the famous Bruges view, a really pretty spot. If you book a canal view room you'll have a lovely outlook and the company of ducks and swans drifting by! (The ducks can be a bit loud first thing in the morning, but we didn't mind that for a very short stay. More than three mornings being woken up by quacking might have been too much.)
The room we had was big and comfortable and clean. We had to ask for milk which wasn't provided, and more teabags, of which there were never quite enough. We didn't opt to have the hotel breakfast as we had understood there were no cooked options and there were plenty of cafes nearby offering more variety.
Staff were friendly and helpful when we asked questions and overall there's a warm, welcoming atmosphere.
We were there as a couple and it proved to be a nice, romantic hotel choice. I can't say whether it would be good for families but one thing to bear in mind is you have to walk past a sex shop on your way to the front door! There are some quite adult things displayed in the shop window that might not be suitable for younger eyes.
All in all, glad we chose this hotel and grateful to have had a lovely, central base in Bruges from which to stroll out and enjoy the city. Best chocolate shop in our view is the one over the road from this hotel called Chocolate ou Praline. Don't miss it!
