this is a basic, no frills hotel but a great location and the people who run it are so friendly they made you feel right at home. we had a triple room at the rear. It had a good en-suite with a plastic sliding door which was a pain to shut, but a great shower and it was clean. It...

Hotel Nicolas was a perfect home for our brief stay in Bruges. The hotel owner was friendly and very helpful, the room was clean and the bathroom much more spacious than our previous nights in London. The room was very basic, no TV, but it had everything you need for a comfortable nights sleep. The hotel, while only a block...

We visit Bruges regularly - we love the place! We aways stay at Hotel Nicolas for several very good reasons. The hosts are wonderful and most welcoming, the hotel is clean and warm even in the middle of Winter. Breakfasts are good and importantly the location is second to none in the town. Unbeatable value for money but money cannot...

This is a basic hotel with excellent location in the center of historic Brugge. Small room, but comfortable and clean. Very nice family runs the hotel, they were very helpful and friendly. Clean up-to-date bathroom. Included breakfast was plentiful and wholesome. Good choice for travelers who want to be comfortable on a budget.

Visited Brugge 6th to 9th May. Hotel meets all of the views expressed in other reviews: clean, staff very helpful and friendly, great location. We had arranged a day trip to battlefields and so the lady who prepares the breakfast came in 30 mins early so that we could eat before the 'normal' breakfast time. All staff we met were...

Internet not available. TV available in 4 rooms, by request and extra 5€ / day. So what??! In the heart of Bruges, super staff, very decent rooms (apart some noises from the floor) and basic breakfast for that price??! I bet it's the best value you'll ever find in Bruges!

What more could you ask for? This hotel was a great value. The rooms were clean, although a little bit outdated. I'd rather take the value than have a modern place to sleep. Trust me, there is so much to do in Bruges, that you won't want to just hang out in your hotel. The staff were just great. In...

As we only stayed in Bruges for one night, the location couldn't have been better. Incredibly close to the Centre, just a few minutes walk from the Belfry. Room was basic but very clean and great value for money given the location. Staff were extremely friendly and helpful. If you're going by car there is an underground car park just...

Always our first choice of hotels when visiting Bruges. Lovely hosts, who cannot do more to help you, Clean rooms with en suite, fantastic location right by the main square, and the continental breakfast is more than adequate. Double room for 60 Euros a night with breakfast is a great price and i'm sure you will not find better!
