Historical Traveler Reviews Adornes Brugge
Our stay at the Adornes was absolutely delightful. The rooms were comfortable, bathrooms updated and the staff was so professional. I would definitely return to this lovely hotel. We enjoyed the superb location and the free bicycles included with our stay. There is a huge selection of adult and children's bicycles and Bruges is great to explore on a bike.
We'll never stay anywhere else in Bruges
We spent three nights here at the beginning of August. The location is great, bordering a quiet canal between the center of the city (Market Place is a pleasant walk of no more than 10 minutes) and the windmills. The rooms are nicely decorated and well maintained, with helpful touches like electric fans, good lighting and closet space, and modern bathrooms. The breakfast buffet is generous, and is served to a background of classical music with a lit candle on your table. The best part of all is the staff - helpful, friendly, accommodating, and intelligent. I can't imagine ever wanting to stay anywhere else in Bruges.
Cool place to stay
I can't believe this is considered budget. The decorating was nice, and the room and bath were spotless. The breakfast room was my favorite place- they actually had a wood fire going in that big, beautiful hearth. It might say May on the calendar, but it was chilly. Had time to take out a bicycle, it was a trip highlight. The staff was extremely freindly and helpful, and answered all your questions. Brugge, and this hotel, is one special place.
Wonderful hotel in Bruges
I absolutely, definitely recommend the Adornes for you to stay in on your trip to Bruges (yes, you, reading this). I can't agree with the poster who said it was on a noisy corner - our room overlooked the canal and the main street and there was no noise at all. The room was first class, beautifully presented with exposed timbers and a fantastic bathroom - the sort of place you wish you could take home with you and live in forever. Honestly, it was that nice. The breakfasts were good and the breakfast room with exposed brickwork was lovely. We were there in a freezing cold March 2003 and at the end of a day of sightseeing outdoors, loved getting back to the very cosy hotel room (and I mean cosy in the real sense not the estate agent sense for small because the room was very spacious indeed). Excellent location, just a few minutes walk into Bruges town centre. I heartily recommend this hotel and would definitely stay there again.
If you make it to Brugge, This hotel is a MUST...It is a VERY old building(1600's)-LOTS of charm-(We marveled at the wooden pegs used to secure the HUGE beams)-but very modern ammenities- We had room 17or 19 right in front of the Canal(BEST room in the house!)...woke up every morning to the swans swimming in the canal!
Nathalie, and the staff are all SUPERB!. In fact we had a bit of difficulty with our credit card (ID theft-) but Natalie sorted it all out for us! We bought her a bouquet of flowers to thank her! Hotel Adornes is family owned-to that end when you stay there you become "adopted" by them-(Always get a Christmas Card from them Evey year!) This hotel is everything but noisy! I read the review that said that this hotel was on a busy street...NOT at all... In fact we Loved the serenity of this hotel... We will return again!
A Lovely Hotel in a Great City
A wonderful, reasonably priced hotel, located along a beautiful canal in the heart of the city. We stayed for two nights moving rooms the second night. Our first room faced the side street and the other faced the canal (upstairs above the hotel sign). Both were clean and comfortable. I'm a light sleeper and found both rooms acceptably quiet even with an open window.
The staff was very helpful and even gave us a free bottle of champagne when they realized we checked in on my birthday - how thoughtful. Breakfast was good and you won't find a better location.
I have two criticisms. One is that the rooms have no showers, only a flexible hose connected to the tub spout with no wall mount and no shower curtain. Thus, water went everywhere while showering. The second is that this hotel has no air conditioning and Brugge can be prone to mosquitoes. Thus, I'd reconsider staying here in the summer unless you can tolerate closing the windows in the heat.
The Adornes Was A Great Choice
The Adornes worked very well for my wife and me during a 2 day stay in September. It is an easy walk or bike ride from everything in town and the rooms were small but very nicely appointed. We had a canal view room with a double bed, beautiful view and very nice bathroom. Our windows were closed at night so noise was no problem. Breakfast was excellent and served in a quaint room with a wooden floor and fireplace. We had a car and in Brugge parking isn't easy so the Hotel's underground lot was great. We also used the bikes for a ride to Damme as well as into town. It's a very nice hotel with a friendly, helpful staff.
Adornes is ok
The Adornes hotel is everything the guidebooks say, with nice rooms, well placed, friendly and helpful staff, reasonable rates and excellent breakfasts. The hotel loans the guests bicycles, a very nice addition, although I had to try four or five bicycles before I found one that worked. HOWEVER, it is on the noisiest corner in Bruges. It is a little better on the canal side, as the sound does not reverberate off the buildings, but there are two or three major bus routes along the canal, so you hear the buses night and day. The only traffic jam I saw in Bruges was right outside the Adornes. Next time in Bruges, I will look for a hotel which is not on a bus route or major thoroughfare.
We kkep going back to the Adornes
We have used the Adornes several times in the last few years. The rooms are excellent and breakfasts are very good. If you like to walk and Brugges is a city to walk in, the hotel is well placed, not too far out of the centre and the roads surrounding it are not too noisy. believe the guidebooks, its a nice combination of old and new and homely. good value for money. Parking is available nearby, underground in a secure car park.

I will come back, perhaps, and narrate. But the pictures actually show our day pretty well!
This was a typical day of wandering- sometimes lost, sometimes a familiar sight. The lost parts are actually fun - never know what you will find. The quiet little corners are always favorites. The shops are …
After a pleasant breakfast brunch, we went on a walking tour of Brugge with Daniel, a local guide. Usually if we carry our umbrellas, we don't need them--not so today! But it was mostly soft, Washington rain, at times mere effervescence. Still, the umbrellas were a good thing.
