Historical Traveler Reviews Golden Tulip De'Medici Hotel Brugge
Nice and quite, not too far from the town
It was OK. We stayed on our way back from Germany and Luxembourg. Our room was the smallest out of the 3 hotels we stayed in on our trip but there was nothing wrong with it. The bathroom was very modern but why they bother to put in double wash basins is beyond me. Who wants their partner washing their bits next to you ;-). Our room overlooked the 'Japanese garden' and the air conditioning worked a treat. Couldn't have the window open because it's mosquito time!! The hotel is near the most beautiful church and not too far a walk to the main square. Dinner in the town was very very expensive 90 euros for two. Nice food though. The hotel has it's own Japanses restaurant and if we'd been staying more than one night would have eaten there but we wanted to taste the local food. The bar was very accommodating with a TV for the football fans and all the staff were very polite but not as friendly as we found in the other two cities. We had a very good rate and as I always recommend, try booking direct with the hotel, it's often the cheapest option. Enjoy your stay
We stayed here for one night on a recent trip to Brugge. We found most hotels in Brugge very expensive, but this hotel was a good value for the $$. The location is good, just about 10 minutes walk from the city center. It's located on a beautiful canal along cobblestone streets. We parked on the street with a purchased pass, and it worked very well. The rooms were good sized and very clean. We were looking forward to enjoying the spa after a long day of walking; however we were dismayed to find the jacuzzi out of order. The steam room and sauna were very nice, though, as well as the solarium. The breakfast was absolutely fantastic and we were pleased it was included in the room rate. We enjoyed our stay and would stay again. One note...we had dinner at a very upscale French restaurant, Chez Olivier, and I would highly recommend it for a charming and gourmet meal.
Nice hotel Little bit like Venice
Just back from 1 Night in the Golden Tulip DeMedici Brugge. Hotel was very clean in nice quiet area beside canal about 10 minutes walk from Market Area with all the bars and restaurants. I would recommend this hotel, it has a Japanese Restaurant which I did not get to use as I wanted to sample the Local Belgium Restaurants near the square. I would recommend La Civiere d'Or at the market followed by Cambrinus Pub with 400 Belgium Beers and finish off in Celtic Ireland Pub if you want some music.
Definately average... not bad particularly, but not that romantic or special
I think it was the surprise this is a chain hotel (Pacific International) and we had thought we were booking into a nice boutique one. It has the feel of a club-med cum old holiday-inn type mix, yet has a quite expensive Japanese Tepanyaki restaurant in the foyer.
The staff were friendly but not overly helpful. It is on the canal, but the views from the rooms dont really benefit. The hotel isnt that far away from town but there did seem to be many, many others closer and nicer. That wasnt an issue until you get to dinner-time, dead tired from touring Brugge, and just wanted a nice little cafe or restaurant to relax into, without facing the walk home.
The pool and health facilities were out of order and no one had informed us beforehand, probably would have been mifft if we had really planned on using them.
However the one great thing about it, was the bread at breakfast! Yummy freshly baked and warm - the meal was a great way to start our day... just maybe not enough to make us go back though...
Spotlessly clean hotel in a quiet area, along a canal, about 10 minutes' pleasant walk from the Markt. We had a very generous family room - ample room for all three of us.
All staff in the hotel were pleasant and friendly, and although quite large it gave the impression of being cosy and intimate.
The only drawback is the psychological distance from the centre in the evening when it comes to food. Although within some walking distance from the main restaurants (and I suppose we could have got a taxi) that was a challenge after a day of walking and sightseeing. The choice at the hotel was between an expensive Japanese restaurant and a bar which was neat and clean but lacking atmosphere and a limited choice of food.
All in all however a very pleasant stay.
Good Location - Good Price - Would stay there again
We stayed at the hotel on Boxing Day and found everything to be of a good standard. The reception staff were friendly and checkin/checkout was a breeze. The hotel bar was decent for a nightcap and while we didn't have breafast as we had the eurotunnel train to catch the facilities looked good.
The room itself was very large by continental standards, with enough room for a desk and chairs to go along with the expected double bed and chest of drawers. The bathroom was also quite large, but looked like it was part way through some refurbishment. We had a 2nd floor room facing the road/canal providing some nice views.
The location was very good. Call it a 10 min walk to the town square, with neighbourhood pubs and restaurants well within stumbling distance. If you come by car you can follow the ring road around to the north-east corner and then cross the canal, on to the cobblestone and its down the road along the canal on the left and secure parking is 10 euro/night, although the street parking looks safe enough. If you're arriving by train/bus its a walk clear across town to get to the hotel.
One word of warning for those travelling with kids, while flippin through the channels to find BBC (no really we were!) we stumbled past an 'unlocked' porn channel so you might want to be careful leaving them alone with the tele!
That minor point aside, we'd definitely recommend staying here and would do so again.
Comfortable and modern
A spacious, quiet, comfortable hotel with an excellent breakfast. Staff friendly and helpful. Rather a long walk from town if you're a bit crotchety but there's a bus stop over the road. Buses every 20 mins and into the centrum for one euro. Private parking available. Reasonable evening menu available in bar but no tea making facilities in room.
We spent a three night break July 7-10 at this hotel which overlooks canal in quiet cobbled street. Very pleasant variable walks to centre (10 mins). Room in new block was exceptionally clean, acceptable size but not huge, overlooking japanese garden. Bathroom really well thought out. Excellent breakfast, including small selection hot buffet. Availability of secure car park 10 euros a day. We paid 299 euros for two people for three nights including breakfast. Week day breakfasts very quiet, Sunday very busy but plenty of food and quiet and efficient staff. Several eating places locally plus so many a short walk away. Highly recommended by two active and well travelled 65 year olds.
We stayed at this hotel in May 2004, during the UK long weekend. This location was right alongside the river, and 5mins walk into town. We drove here from the UK, and took around 45mins from Calais. Brugge itself was beautiful, and a nice hotel, that treats you well always helps.
The hotel room was large, and bathroom and beds were great. The breakfast in the morning was very nice, not greasy like most places but still gave you your full breakfast. They also have a nice Chinese garden outside the breakfast room which is nice.
Nice hotel, nice room, nice people and nice location
The Golden Tulip De'Medici is Top Notch!
I recently traveled through Germany, Luxembourg, and Belgium with some friends. The Golden Tulip in Brugge (Bruges) was by far the nicest hotel that we stayed at during our two-week trip. It is about a five minute walk from the center of the city on a quiet road next to a canal. The rooms were large (even by American standards!) and clean, the AC worked beautifully, and the employees were very friendly.

Well I believe Brugge, Belgium may be the most dangerous place for me to visit in the world. Whose idea was it to combine the best beer, chocolate, frites and waffles in one country? But in reality I had such a fun rapid-fire weekend exploring Brugge with a couple other au pairs.
I had been speaking to Maddy in early September about a few more places we both wanted to get to before our au pair years were up. I mentioned that ...
... The carpet that one walks on tells the history of the city and its civic guards as do the wonderful paintings on the wall. Another discovery was the Begijhof, a small circle of homes where women who had denounced materialism lived simply beside a small church which one could easily walk past without noticing. The reason, Catholics took pains not to draw attention to themselves in the Protestant dominated community. Of course, we couldn't help but stumble upon the flower market full ...
... French fries. Who knew? I haven't had them yet but there is still time. I have enjoyed the free chocolate samples however….wow! Chocolate everywhere!
Last night I enjoyed some tomato and carrot soup with croque monsieur – all very yummy! And only cost 10 euros.
Today was a little cooler with temperature only about 13 degrees Celsius and cloudy. Nothing like a little hot chocolate to help!
After the boat tour ...
... aren't due till 6pm. The wind steadily increased as we approached the coast. The path was not as picturesque as earlier, but we still had a dedicated bike path with no fear of renegade cars swiping us. One of the towns, before Knokke, the last town on the coast, must have been a rich neighborhood. There were expensive car shops, Bentley, and sculpted lawns leading to modest sized, but beautifully built houses. To get to the coast, we had to bike through ...

Brugges is a great place to start off the beer experience. They have a fabulous brewery in town called De Halve Maan (Straffe ...
