Made an early start after a delicious breakfast. Went and parked the car outside the old town as the day before. Today was a special day and the town was blocked off to cars. Thought it would be nice and relaxing not having to worry about crossing roads but did not count on the million and a half push bikes! Nearly got bowled over numerous times. Today was a special day, don't really know what was being celebrated but it was awesome. The sun ...
... not wired differently.
There is a lot of various old styles of buildings in Bruges. They go back to medieval times. At on time Bruges Was the chief commercial centre of the world. It's access to the sea silted in and Bruges lost some of its influence.
It was cool and rainy and we were getting tired, so we ended up getting Greek and Italian takeaway and heading back to our hotel. We got upgraded on our room and ended up with a kitchen suite set up that is very ...
... since they were paid for anyway. Booked for 3 nights too so had a free stay :) thought it might be a good idea not to bother Lisa too much. So that was it. Tour over. Really glad I did it. Met some awesome people that I will keep in contact with but still wish I had started it from the beginning so that I got to know everyone a lot easier. Now it was time to enjoy London for a bit before Oktoberfest and then it's karate in Canada, Russia and ...
... 3minutes till take off, and he's at the meeting point we'd arranged from 3 days ago. We made it to the train, but thank god we only have a week, I couldn't cope with him on a 3 month trip. I should add that I aught to be fast asleep. However due to the Belgium waffles I think I'm having a sugar rush so finding it impossible to sleep! Today we woke up, not early enough for Ty, as I don't fancy awaking at 7am when there's no need to. He went off, by ...
... Eltz- met more friends. Toured the castle with them. Our tour guide was cool- a young guy that has been to 22 of the 50 states in the US. His favorite is Colorado- good choice. Great guy. He's saving more money to travel more. What a great thing to do. The castle was totally different than the others. After seeing so many, you begin to recognize the different periods and see which ones were built for luxury versus defenses for attacks. And Burg Eltz was a fairy tale castle! The ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Karel de Stoute Brugge
I liked very much Hotel Karel de Stoute. It's located in the town centre, near the Markt. The breakfast is excellent. Guests have free Internet access. The hotel is managed by the owners, who are very nice and helpful. The room was comfortable, clean and quiet, with a great view of the towers of Brugge. I would strongly recommend it.
Hospitality plus a bit
Where to stay in Brugge we thought - obviously check out tripadvisor.com. We didn't want a fancy hotel with bars/restaurant/sauna but we did want somewhere central and well priced. All the reports about Karel de Stoute were encouraging except a strange one from some guy who didn't actually stay there ! We were not disappointed. The owners Winke and Daphne could not have been more helpful. Good size clean rooms,substantial breakfast and a great cellar bar all just a couple of minutes from the centre. Good restaurants within a stones throw. Great place !!
Another satisfied customer...Karel de Stoute was perfect for our famiy. My husband and I and our two children (ages 8 & 4) stayed there the first weekend in September. For the price, you can't beat it! It's a quaint little hotel on a quiet street just off the main shopping and tourist areas. The place was surprisingly quiet. Our room was right next to the stairs and I was a little concerned when we first arrived because the floors were pretty squeaky. We didn't hear a thing all night long and I was very surprised in the morning to find the breakfast room filled with other vacationers!
Absolutely NOT recommended!
We were extremely disappointed by this hotel and would not recommend it to anyone.
They abuse of their cancellation policy and took advantage of my credit card number to charge a room that was cancelled.
We travel a lot and we understand why and how cancellation policies should be use. I'm sorry to say that I never been so disappointed and tricked before. I would not make a reservation there even if it's the last place available in Bruges.
We loved this hotel. First of all, it is situated right in the center of town, but on a very nice and quiet street. The hotel itself is a gorgeous historic building. Our room was very basic, but large and spotless and had a beautiful view. The breakfast room was breathtaking and the breakfast itself was a treat. The service provided by the owners was top notch and we felt well-taken care of at all times. This hotel is truly a great value and I would definitely come back to this lovely place!
We loved the Hotel Karel de Stoute. Everyone was extremely friendly and helpful with everything from restaurant recommendations to storing our bags for several hours after checkout. The hotel was spotlessly clean and the made-to-order eggs for breakfast were a welcomed treat. Our family room was adequate with a double and two single beds, but much smaller than the townhome style accomodations we had outside Amsterdam. I thought our kids (ages 17 and 12) would complain after having had two bedrooms and a kitchen for the previous three nights, but they agreed that they liked the Hotel Karel de Stoute much better. Great location also, with a reasonably priced parking garage close by.
We love this hotel because the owners Winke and Daphne are very friendly. We were coming from a long flight from Singapore but the warm welcome we received made us forget about our jetlag. We received a lot of tips on ongoing special tours which were not mentioned in our travel guides (like the summer bicycle tour around the city of Bruges---it's good exercise and you get a lot of amusing stories from our fun guide!
Great place to stay!!
The Hotel Karel de Stoute is a great place to stay. I've been there four times now and have always enjoyed it. The building is rich in history, it dates from the second half of the 14th century. Its located just a short distance off of the market square. The prices are great and they offer a free breakfast. If you go, make sure to check out the arched brick ceiling in the basement bar, very nice.
Wonderful place to stay
I have stayed here twice now and plan to return to this fine hotel everytime I visit Brugge. The hosts Daphne and Winke are very pleasant, informative and make you feel very welcome in their home. The rooms are clean, quite and very reasonably priced. The breakfast in the morning was awesome starting off with a fresh glass of orange juice, pastries, cheeses, meats and omelets. The hotel is a few minutes walk from the Market square but is on a quite street. A great place to stay and I would highly recommended it.
