      Historical Traveler Reviews Martin's Brugge

      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.

      Perfect location


      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.

      Clean & welcoming


      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.

      The location of the hotel couldn't be better. It's located centrally very near to the Belfry. The only downside to this is that it was a bit noisy during the night if you like to keep a window open. The upkeep and cleanliness is the best I've seen in a hotel for a while. It was warm, comfy & friendly. The rooms are en suite and have a mini bar, TV & safe but we didn't use them.

      There is a buffet breakfast with a good selection from fruit, cereals, eggs, meats & cheeses.

      Bruges is a pretty place, full of cobbled streets. It's easy to expore on foot, on a river boat or be pulled in a horse drawn carriage. Great views from the top of the Belfry. Be warned the stairs get very steep and narrow nearer the top.

      On the whole Bruges is an expensive place to go to. If you like tomatoe sauce with your meal, you will be charged extra (we were charged 1.80 Euro!)

      The restaurants like to try to add on extras but are not pushy, more suggestive. The food in the restaurants we went to was superb.

      We went for 2 days which we felt was enough time to see all the main attractions and get a good feel for the place.

      A Nice Stay


      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.

      Good But...


      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.

      Good location


      +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

      outside front.

      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.

The ride to the town was nice - a couple of tricky turns but we found our way all on our own (good teamwork). Then reached a small town with cobblestones - so annoying to ride on. Traveled through beautiful countryside with views for miles. Then about 10 minutes to arriving a drizzle/rain began. It was just heavy enough to impair ...

The church has a no photography policy, but some people completely ignore this. The really bad ones even took flash photography. It is quite awe-worthy and one can really feel a sense of mysticism and spirituality present especially when a small choral group and the organ ...

      ... at 6.40am and taking 15 minutes, we were, of course, the last to arrive at the bus pick up point, just a hop and a skip from Cleopatra’s Needle on the Embankment.

      But the 14 other New York-bound bus people didn’t hold it against us and after a few photos, the journey was underway. Excited passengers were soon introducing themselves, shaking hands and wondering what the hell this bald forty-plus something was doing on a bus going most of the ...

      Couldn't log on at the hotel overnight so sorry that this post is 24h late. Another good night in the Novotel and a full breakfast to follow. We shared that with the TV personality Ian Hislop (Have I got news for you and other programmes) who we suspect was filming another programme about WW1. It rained...again...almost all day. We went into the trenches at Vimy Ridge, the British and German fron ...

Before taking the Heilige Geestraat, we could take pictures of the northern facade of the church, dominated by its impressive brick tower, the highest of this kind of material in Belgium. Then we follows by Heilige Geestraat to the cathedral, and from there, by Steenstraat, back to the Market Square where the tour concluded. After Google's rule, we walked 3,473 meters. I didn't remember the time spent, ...
