Nice old fashioned hotel with basic rooms.
Posted Oct 22, 2016
The hotel is situated to the north of the old town, but just a few minutes walk from the main squares and attractions. Parts of the hotel date back to the 15th century and the owners have tried to keep the "old world" feel of the hotel by incorporating old fashioned furniture and fittings into the rooms. We were greeted very pleasantly by the receptionist who immediately gave us a map of Brugges and marked where the hotel was situated on the map. We were given a very large and pleasant room on what turned out to be the "ground" floor, albeit up several steps, overlooking the canal. We were disappointed that the hotel did not provide tea or coffee making facilities in the room, nor a minibar, but there was a small refrigerator. We were also a little disappointed that there was no proper shower, only a shower attachment in the bath with no screening. That meant that to have a shower one had to stand in the bath, holding the shower head in one hand whilst soaping etc with the other and, of course, splashing water all over the bathroom floor. We were very amused that when sitting on the toilet, the toilet paper holder was placed just out of reach on the wall opposite! Fortunately, with a little contortion, it was possible to reach a secondary toilet roll placed strategically behind your left arm. Breakfast only is provided in the hotel. There is no other food available except for some sandwiches available from behind the small bar. Breakfast itself is excellent.

Please note that it is mentioned very clearly in the description that taking a shower is not possible (due to age and structure of the building).
Please note that Tea or Coffee making facilities are not advertised as being present.
The minibar is indeed empty but can be filled immediately upon a simple request.
We advertise to serve food other than breakfast.
