      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 town itself is quite nice, apparently completely rebuilt since WWI. We learned, as we toured the museum, that the entire area had been reduced to a wasteland. There were no buildings, not even a tree left standing. One of the soldiers commented that it was as barren ...

Could appreciate their colourful lifelike works until the early 20th century when it all became squares and lines and buggy eyes, then it lost us. We decided to take a train to Rotterdam to see where friends Piek and Peter live, so off we ...

      During a tour of one of the Churches (again no photos allowed), I noticed two girls that I had seen outside, and one of them was aiming a Camera at a Michelangelo statue. I reminded her about the rule, and gather she hadn’t bothered to look at the sign at the entrance. It turned out that they were from Mexico.

      The tour lasted about 3.5 hours, and I quite enjoyed it although by the end ...

I usually avoid such places but my brother in law said it was his favorite city in all of Europe and I really had to see for myself whether this was a good call or a bad call. I wouldn’t make such a big statement about anything in Europe without seeing at least another 2000 cities but it was certainly a worthwhile & relaxing stop for a day and ...

      ... many different ones Matt tried, but probably the most memorable was Kwak which comes served in a miniature yard glass in a wooden stand. It really is all in the presentation. We chose a little restaurant near our hotel, more by a process of elimination as everything else was shut on a rainy Sunday night. The food was pretty appalling except for the waffles with chocolate sauce which almost made up for it. We finished the night by tasting some of the Belgian chocolates ...
