Bus to center of city, take 2 hour Walking tour of this very old city. Lots of spires everywhere. Went into St Baafs Cathedral to see Jan Van Eyck's 'Adoration of the Lamb' which is symbolic of Jesus' sacrifice . Windy and very cold today. Back on bus to ship. Had a wonderful lunch with the girls. Most of the passengers went on to see Bruge. We stayed to relax and ...
Had a lovely breakfast brought to us in our room. Taxi at 8:30am to train station for 9:00 train to Antwerp connection to Amsterdam. First class, had my birthday beer! Walked to meeting point, the Moevenpick Hotel. Our sweet Hilde and Tanja greeted me with birthday wishes and fresh beautiful tulips! How kind. ...
... to Bruges on time. Erin Suggested catching a bus back, but I wasn't so sure as I had not seen any buses on the way there. So riding it was, we set off I got into a rhythm and kept riding, Erin on the other hand was struggling. Eventually we make it back into civilization and Erin perked up as we cut through the city we hit a wall of people. Bruges had been quiet when we left but it felt like it had been invaded, there were English people everywhere. It we then had to get off and ...
... me to spend some extra days there.
Small bars serving delicious beers in extravagant glasses abound and I the Australians I meet and I become determined to sample as many as possible.
I stare whimsically at the flow of canals that bring boats softly through the sleepy city and at the horses that pull carriages through cobblestone streets. Horses that are always appreciative of a nose rub. The longer I stay the more ...
... definitely go via the fish market as it was very interesting. She completed her information by adding that Belgium was famous for having weather that experienced four seasons in one day. A little concerned that snow might well follow the blustery autumnal weather we were experiencing, we parted and finally made it back to the railway station.It continued raining heavily throughout the evening and we were very glad of a hot shower and cup of tea on our return..

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.
