Our wonderful experience of Brugge was coming to an end, and next stop was Paris. We left here at about 11:00 am and travelled by Thalys train. This was heaps better and more comfortable than the Eurostar, and a tad cheaper too. Pity it service more routes! Anyways, we arrived in Paris in the afternoon after a 3 hour journey give or take a few minutes.
We breakfasted at the hotel. We then decided to tour the Historium – an interactive display revealing what life was like in wealthy Bruges in the medieval times, using characters from a Van Eyck painting. It was a major centre for trade and commerce in Northern Europe and renowned for its trade in luxurious goods, called the New York of its …
We had an early start as we were on our way to Bruges. We left out apartment at 6:30 am for St Pancras Station where we boarded the Eurostar service to Brussels. We decided to get a taxi rather than struggle with our luggage on the tube. The driver dropped us at the front entrance and after passing through security and passport control, we left …
Today we left England and on to a ferry to take us to the European continent. We joined our tour and first stop is Brugge and then Brussels. We had a lovely dinner with our tour group members later in the evening.
My trip to Bruges was fabulous. My hotel room looked right at the belfry and was very comfortable (and huge compared to the room in Paris!).
I didn't see any bodies being thrown from the tower but I did see one midget. For anyone that hasn't seen the film 'In Bruges' you probably won't get the reference so see it so you …

This place is spotless! We enjoyed our stay here, and would most certainly use this chin of hotels again. Beds are comfortable, service is good, and it is right there in the heart of the city. Lovely staff, who knew the city backwards and could tell us exactly where to go for a dinner, for anything actually. We did have WiFi problems, but then again, this paled into insignificance...

Great location - good value for money.
We ended up paying just under £45 for the room (per night, double room with breakfast) as we booked through lastminute, and it didn't disappoint. The location was fantastic, being a stones throw away from the Burg and the Market Place. The room was pretty standard, breakfast was decent enough and the staff helpful.
For what we paid, we couldn't have asked for more.
Bruges is a brilliant place for romantic walks and over-indulgence in good beer and chocolate! It is lovely for anything upto 1 week. We were there for 2 full days and managed to fit most good bits in. The hotel was ideally situated, the breakfast as previously said is good and overall the staff are un-intrusive but helpful. The room was clean and tidy and if you, like us, dont spend too much time in the hotel is ideal. The only real problem was the room was on the slightly small side. But for a decent bed and breakfast this place is where id go if I went back. Its 2 mins from centre of Bruges and around 100 restaurants and bars and the city is of a size where you can walk from center to edge in about 20-25 mins,
as we are new to travelling abroad we were quite nervous about the hotel, but our fears left us as soon as we arrived.
the hotel is very clean. the bar has happy hour every night, which pleased most of our group. the staff are really warm and friendly.
everything was just right, location was spot on. breakfast was good ,
all in all we have no complaints about the hotel.
Loved it !
Recommended. You are just 1 street away from the main Market Square. Location is very conveniant.
Hotel is clean and the included breakfast is good. 3 stars.
We decided to visit Bruges over the August bank holiday weekend. We booked direct on the Eurostar website and decided on this hotel mainly because it was one of the cheapest. We were impressed with Eurostar (this was our first experience of this service). You need to change trains in Brussels for Bruges.
We enjoyed our stay at Oude Burg, we did have to ask for our room to be changed as the room we were allocated smelled heavily of cigarettes, but this was not a problem we were given a key to another room and told that if that room was not to our liking we could try another room, the room was basic but very clean and comfortable. Breakfast was enjoyable with a good variety, there is also a tea room and bar there which again we found very nice. We were central to everywhere in Brugge, we walked around and kept coming across our Hotel, we actually had a small view of the market square, which is very pretty with all the open fronted Cafe's and restaurants. The staff were pleasant. The sound of bells could be heard often but they were quite nice really, didn't bother us at all. We did find it a bit noisy when the bin men came, but bins have to be emptied!! We would definitately stay there again.
As others say it is an average hotel. Rooms on the small side, no air conditioning, breakfast very good, great location. VERY noisy area of town with street noise and church bells. Get room away from the street as there is no real view to miss.
+ves: excellent central location; safe and secure; bar on site; large scale breakfast bar; good size room; good power shower; wide choice of TV stations to view; relaxed atmosphere with courteous staff; curious, but interesting viewing gallery on the roof; good price.
-ves: the room temperature felt a little warm, especially at night; decor perhaps a little sterile, compared to the surrounding beauty and romance of Brugge.
Perfectly reasonable hotel, that allowed us to enjoy this gorgeous city without any accomodation worries.
Ideally located, no fuss hotel
Agree with Guy Sibley's review. The basic modren hotel is easy to find, very convenient for the maket place and center of the towm & good value for money given Bruges prices. Ideal for one or two nights.
Quiet and Comfortable
The bed was very confortable, and the room was basic but suffecient. Warm and clean.
The Buffet breakfast was extensive with good choice. The Coffee was
reasonable. The Bar was Ok and the reception staff polite and helpful.
It is just a pity that hotel has no restaraunt,but plenty in street
We feel some of the previous reviews give a wrong impression - we think
the Olde Burg was just fine for a short stay of say upto seven days.
