    Great location for driving into the city. 5 minutes walk to shops and restaurants. Very friendly and helpful staff. Nice building - our room was outside next to the car park which was fine for 1 night.

    Historical Traveler Reviews Golden Tree Brugge

    Bon accueil mais chambre minuscule !


    Un très bon accueil, le gérant est sympathique et à l'écoute. Cependant nous avions une chambre qui donnait sur le parking et la porte d'accès de nuit. Le bruit des personnes rentrant durant la nuit par cette porte était assez dérangeant. De plus, la chambre était très petite avec une toute petite fenetre... Pas de problème de propreté. Le petit déjeuner compris dans le prix était très appréciable.

    A beautiful hotel in beautiful Brugge


    From the moment of stepping through the front door into the lovely light filled reception area, our experience at The Golden Tree Hotel was a memorable one.

    The Hotel has a lovely atmosphere, and the Breakfast room is simply gorgeous.

    The staff are warm, friendly and welcoming, and were a great help to us in finding the places we wanted to see in Brugge.

    Their personal recommendations of the best chocolate shops etc were fantastic, and right on the money.

    The rooms are lovely and clean, with very comfortable beds.

    The hotel is situated very centrally, just off the main town square, and allows great access to the many attractions of Brugge, and allows you to go out for dinner within walking distance of your hotel.

    All in all, our stay was absolutely wonderful, and we thoroughly recommend this hotel to anyone planning a visit to Brugge.

    Beautiful hotel - perfect base


    The Golden Tree Hotel was beautiful. Such fantastic value for money and somewhere I'd recommend for a relaxing getaway!

    The breakfasts were amazing and the staff were very friendly and helpful. The room we stayed in were spacious and clean and had all we could ask for.

    We are looking forward to our next trip.

    Awful traffic noise


    Brugge is a lovely city and the Golden Tree is ideally situated as a base from which to explore it. The main problem we had with the hotel was the awful traffic noise. The hotel is on a main through road that is very busy with traffic throughout the day and for most of the night. Some of this is heavy lorry traffic presumably on its way to Zeebrugge. The noise is probably worse at the front of the hotel (we were in room 22). It was so loud that it was difficult to sleep. We also felt that the quality of the room (size and quality of furniture and fittings) was poor for a 3 star rating. There were for example many broken bathroom tiles. The breakfast was however very good and as mentioned it is conveniently located. If driving, the car park and location would be very helpful indeed.

    Stilvolles Hotel mit gutem Service; allerdings an sehr befahrener Straße!


    Das stilvolle Hotel in Randlage zur Altstadt ist ideal für Ausflüge zu Fuß in die Stadt! Der Chef "Dave" an der Reception spricht englisch & französisch. Er gibt bereitwillig Auskunft zu Ausflügen, Restaurants ect. Das Frühstücksbuffet ist Durchschnitt.Leider muß man den lauten Strassenlärm direkt vor dem Hotel erwähnen, da eine der 4-spurigen Hauptstrassen direkt vor dem Hotel lang läuft. Da ist ein Fenster zum Hof gold wert, aber selten!

    Super: der kostenlose Parkplatz im Hof!

    Hauptkritikpunkt war die Buchung über Expedia:

    Bei Expedia besteht die Buchungsbestätigung aus einer e-mail. Das ist eigentlich nicht weiter schlimm. Schlimm ist allerdings, dass die gebuchten Leistungen leider NICHT auf der Mail erwähnt werden; wie z.B. das Frühstücksbuffet. Ich bat Expedia 2 mal um eine schriftliche Bestätigung des gebuchten Frühstücks- leider vergebens-. Im Hotel angekommen wurde uns erstmal wegen des Angebotspreises das Frühstück aberkannt. Erst nach langen Diskussionen durften wir dann doch ans Buffet. Traurig traurig!!!!

    Friendly and convenient


    I couldn't have stayed in a more friendly, courteous hotel. Comfortable room, super food, Classic surroundings, car park and convenient location. Above all, the friendliness of Francine and Dave, their local knowledge of the best pubs, beer, restaurants and chocolate shops shared enthusiastically. I have no hesitation in recommending the Golden Tree to anyone visiting Bruges and I intend to visit there again next year.

    Friendly Hotel


    This is a well run hotel of character, centrally located and good value for money. We were made to feel very welcome by the proprietors whose understanding and knowledge of Brugge made our stay all the more enjoyable.

    Very welcoming


    We stayed at the Inter Hotel (as it was then) between Christmas and New Year, for a couple of nights. The staff were extremely friendly and were very efficient with allocating our room. The room itself was, as the advert said, "confortable", but could do with a little updating but am sure this will happen soon. The location was ideal to explore the t'Zand square and was only a brisk walk down the main shopping street to the main market square. The breakfast was continental and just what we needed to start the day. We would recommend this hotel and stay here again, should we return to Bruges.

    Explorers base


    A good base from which to explore

    Both good and bad about Inter Hotel


    My husband and I just returned from Brugge and we stayed at the Inter Hotel, which is just a stone's throw from the t'Zand and the Concertgebouw, and about 10 minutes walking distance from all the main attractions.The outside and lobby of the hotel suggest lavishness. We were greeted very warmly by the proprieter, who speaks several languages fluently (so you never have to worry about communicating).I found it a tad overpriced, considering the location. Like I said, it was not very close to the tourist attractions, and it was on a busy street. So there was a lot of noise. The room was extremely basic and very plain looking, despite the lavishness of the lobby and breakfast room. The bed was not comfortable. And if you're allergic to dogs, you might not want to stay there, as the owner's dog is a constant fixture (I enjoyed the dog, but it did bark a lot).Good points: a parking lot with free parking, phenomenal breakfast (all you can eat buffet consisting of assorted breads, meats, cheeses, yogurt, jams, honey, nutella, cream cheese, juice, tea, coffee). We enjoyed our stay for the most part, but the largest problem, aside from the noise, was the price. I wouldn't pay that much again for such basic amenities and such a small and bland room and uncomfortable bed. And the shower head in our bathroom was about knee high, which made taking showers very interesting.

    Day 1 - We rode from Amsterdam to Brugge (Bruges) on a bullet train. Our GPS app clocked us at 194 mph, the fastest we've travelled on land. Brugge is a lovely city to wander. First we did the De Halve Mann brewery tour, great tour and great beer. Did you know cheese and beer go well together? Apparently the salt in cheese brings out the sweet, …

    ... It is apparent that Bruges is by no means solely a tourist city. The locals must confine their shopping to the outskirts though, because we saw few shops in the centre that looked like they catered to locals. All in all, Bruges is quite different from Ghent. While they are similar historically, Bruges has been a tourist destination for about 150 years, and there has been plenty of time to restore and refresh, clean the buildings, and spiff up the nice cobblestone ...

    Friday. Armed with our 3 day transport pass, we hit the streets, way before the locals. Even on a week day there is not too much activity before 10am. Our other tourist tool was Rick Steve's mp3 walking tour of Amsterdam City which we began in Dam Square. We used Rick Steve's walking audios in Rome also and they are great. It wasn't long before we found ourselves at the Amsterdam Museum. What a treasure - built on the path that Napoleon used when he ...

Dmitriy took this opportunity to look at Google maps and determine where else we could venture. He mapped out a course that would take us to the coast to see Belgium's beaches, then back down into the northern edge of Brugge. This course would add some mileage to our trip, but should get us back by 4pm; ...

    When I was younger, a sophisticated beer was a corona with a lime in it. As time went by I was introduced to different types of beer. In Japan I went to the Sappora brewery and appreciated the taste, in Mexico I fell in love with Negra Modela , in Long Island I loved my blueberry beer from Bluepoint, in England I tend to drink Old Speckled Hen and of course a Guiness, & so from this collection I thought I knew what beer was ...
