My wife and I and our younger daughter and her fiance have just spent a short break in Bruges. We stayed in Rooms 302 and 304 at the Flanders Hotel, which were superior rooms opposite each other. The youngsters' room overlooked the courtyard and had a toilet separate from the bathroom and on balance, I think it was better than ours, although this does illustrate the individuality of the rooms. That is not to say that our room was poor. On the contrary, the bed was large and comfortable; the room and the bathroom were clean and spacious.The only problem was that we overlooked the street and it was very noisy on the Sunday night only.
The buffet breakfast had a wide choice of food and the quality was high.
The staff were all unfailingly helpful and friendly, including the cleaners and breakfast waitress. I must, however, single out the lady in charge of the bar and the reception staff who were superb.
I was pleasantly surprised by the prices in the bar, which I found very reasonable for a hotel. The staff also recommended "De pepermolen" restaurant, which, whilst not cheap, offered wonderful food and quality wines.
Bruges is an exceptionally clean and safe city and does have its treasures away from the main tourist spots.
The ice sculpture show by the train station was first class.
I happily recommend both Bruges and the Flanders Hotel.
