We've always eaten at The Central since 2001 and never been disappointed. Friendly and attentive staff, great atmosphere -- Serge made us feel at home and was very welcoming last night and to-day. Linda and George.

We ended up lunching here as it had proved tricky to find something quick, light and economic in Bruges. We wanted to sit outside but not eat too much, nor spend a fortune. In the end the food was ok but the service was brusque and amateurish. For both started and main in the economy lunch (€14) we were handed...

We stayed at the hotel for 2 nights. wonderful service from the staff. The last lunch we enjoyed a pizza in "the sirene d'or" with a mixed salad to share and a bottle of water. Not cheap but everywhere you pay the right location, right? All in all price quality, success!

Four of us stopped at Hotel Central for a light evening meal on the evening of September 12. Food was good, but wait staff spoiled what could have been a lovely evening. Our table was ignored as waiter lavished attention on others. Numerous waiters literally yelled back and forth to each other and ran down to talk to a cabbie...

Ate here last week, the food is decent but completely over priced as are there local beers. A great location however situated in the main square. The staff are unfriendly and do not hesitate in asking do you want to leave a tip. I would suggest eating in some of the side streets off the main square.

Perfect location and price pretty good. Staff brilliant. Rooms a bit on small side and a wee bit shabby but we didn't spend long in there AND the beds and pillows were really comfortable and clean. The glass panel in the door was a bit of a pain as every time someone turned on the hall light it woke me...

This hotel is perfectly located on the main square opposite the belfry. The owners are both very nice and helped us with any questions we had about the hotel and city. The room is basic as stated although it could have been cleaner as a few used shampoo sachets were left on top of the shower amd the walls are...
