Positive Reviews

Perfect location for sightseers

The hotel’s position overlooking the Market Square makes it the ideal choice for tourists looking to explore the historic city of Bruges. Guests point out that they’re only seconds away from a wealth of restaurants and shops, while landmarks like the Belfry of Bruges, Provincial Court, and the Dali Museum are right on the doorstep.

Exceptional service

The hotel staff delivers exemplary customer service, according to reviews. Guests are quick to praise employees, describing them as friendly, willing, and eager to assist.

Clean hotel

Reviewers find the hotel to be clean and tidy. Communal spaces are said to be well kept, while individual guest rooms are reported to be spotlessly clean.

Negative Reviews

Rooms lacking in amenities

Guest rooms at the hotel prove a little too basic for guests, who mention that many essential items are missing. Top of the list of absent features are televisions and tea and coffee-making facilities. Meanwhile, travellers booking into basic rooms are disappointed by the lack of natural light that stems from rooms not being fitted with windows.

Thin walls lead to restless night

A good night’s sleep isn’t a given at the hotel, according to reviews. Guests complain that rooms are hindered by thin walls, with even the slightest noise passing between rooms. To further add to the problem, noise from the restaurant below is also said to penetrate guest rooms.

Hotel accessed through the restaurant

Accessing the hotel can be an awkward affair, according to guests. Guest rooms are located above a restaurant, with guests having to pass through the eatery to reach their rooms. This arrangement draws the ire of guests, who feel as though they’re being watched every time they enter or exit their lodgings.
