Before I kick of on the Brugge experience I have got to relive yesterday - went for another drive around and up into "the Netherlands" just because we could, had a look around some of the towns, don't believe the maps, the dots really don't indcate the actual size of the towns/villages/CITIES. On return to Oteppe found that we had been invaded by …
... my passport checked only to see that Zach hadn't made it very far. The guard wouldn't let him through without seeing our hotel reservation and plane tickets out of Belgium. I got them out and the guy spent what seemed like 20 minutes inspecting them. Finally we got the ok to go through, but honestly we didn't know if our train had left yet. We ran frantic as hell... and made it by about 2 minutes. My nerves were shot.
We took a flight from Berlin to Brussels in the early morning, and took a train to Brugges afterwards. Unfortunately, the weather was not so nice, it was raining most of the time. However, we got a chance to take a canal boat tour, which stops while raining.
Brugges is a nice city with friendly people speaking English, French and Dutch. Most of tourists are visiting this city for a ...
... detail, hawk eyed lunch lady. The only things I bought today were a head of lettuce (€1) which I munched on in the square, got a few strange looks for that one, but I had a craving for greenness! Note to self: wash it first, crunchy soil bits in a lettuce are weird. A Belgium waffle (€3) with dark chocolate, sugar overload. A choc covered marshmallow log (€1.5), yum!
The last two days I've been sick with a head cold gotten in Amsterdam.
... much an expert on Bruges and Belgium history. So he explained everything to me as we walked around, and I got a really good feel for Bruges’ history. It's quite interesting - in the Middle Ages, Bruges was one of the richest and most important cities in Europe... until the canal silted up, thus blocking off crucial access to the sea and the trade that it brought. Brecht is also an expert on beers, so I sampled many a Belgian ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Golden Tulip De'Medici Hotel Brugge
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
