... my passport checked only to see that Zach hadn't made it very far. The guard wouldn't let him through without seeing our hotel reservation and plane tickets out of Belgium. I got them out and the guy spent what seemed like 20 minutes inspecting them. Finally we got the ok to go through, but honestly we didn't know if our train had left yet. We ran frantic as hell... and made it by about 2 minutes. My nerves were shot.
We took a flight from Berlin to Brussels in the early morning, and took a train to Brugges afterwards. Unfortunately, the weather was not so nice, it was raining most of the time. However, we got a chance to take a canal boat tour, which stops while raining.
Brugges is a nice city with friendly people speaking English, French and Dutch. Most of tourists are visiting this city for a ...
... times, a window was necessary in every room of a noble’s home so if a family member died, their soul could escape out the window. A custom one was built into this particular rich family’s manor for their sick father, and you can still see it today. The garden has a bridge over a picturesque canal, and there were many swans floating around. We went down closer to take a look, but the little buggers are vicious, so I made vicious noises back to them. ...
... at 3pm. The guide was named Joe and he was from New York. Hilarious dude. Definitely from NY. I got to take some nice pictures. If you have since the movie with Collin Farrell* and they film it in Bruges, well if you know the movie well i was able to get a picture of the window with the dog sticking out and also of the park they used. Bruges is such a small city that you can walk it in 2 days, Easy. Belgium is also known for their mussels which are one of my top ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Novotel Brugge Centrum
Graded this a B+, but it worked for what I needed
With extreme heat waves, the nice outside pool was indeed a treat. Given the age of Brugges, it was also one of the few I am sure. This hotel offers the basics in a nice location and within a fantastic city. The price is great and you'll be pleased that it's a basic clean and nice place WITH a great pool for those hot summer days. It worked out great.
Bog standard stay
Disappointing for Novotel. An Ibis by any other name - except the room was spacious!
The air conditioning was rather ineffective. The hotel was not in the centre.
Otherwise, clean, friendly reception staff - very helpful for directions on the phone.
Ladies with hair styling tongs beware - no mirror in bedroom, no plug near the mirror by the wardrobe area!
Good value for money
Stay here if you are looking for a clean, well located, budget priced hotel. Our room was well equipt for two adults and 2 children. The hotel lacked any local charm, it was a standard American style, basic hotel. The staff were frienly and helpful. We needed assistance in the middle of the night and the staff were prompt and happy to help us. For the price we felt we had great value for money. We booked via the internet and secured an excellent rate.
Great location, spacious accommodations
great location and spacious accommodations.if only the restaraunt service was quicker but this is Belgium.
Convenient location, great food
I stayed at the Novotel in Brugge because of its location (easy walking distance to the main sights) and the availability of parking.
The rooms were comfortable and clean, though nothing that special. The restaurant was excellent. I don't usually eat at hotel restaurants but after I tried it on the first night, I went back three more times. The food was excellent, the service was very good and it was also good value for money.
If you are looking for a cheaper hotel, the Ibis is next door to the Novotel and shares the same car park with it. I don't know any more about the Ibis than that however.
I would definitely stay at the Novotel on any future visits to Brugge.
We spent 3 days here in August. Rooms were clean and modern and staff extremely friendly. Got a great rate off the Accor website which included breakfast. Location is excellent with a 5 minute walk to the city centre and cheap parking underneath the hotel. Bruges itself is lovely although slightly expensive. I would recommend this hotel to anyone wanting a good hotel at a reasonable rate.
Go Novotel Centrum !!
A really good hotel, ideal for kids. Has all the facilities plus a very nice swimming pool area and a table tennis table. The restaurant is good and cheaper than a lot of the over-priced ones elsewhere. Centrally located and I would highly recommend it.
Absolutely fine for a couple of nights, bang in the middle of Brugges with underground parking and easy walking to all the major touristy bits.
We had a lovely stay in Brugge at the Novotel Centrum, just over a 5 minute walk from the main square but much closer to the 'Minnewater'. The staff are very friendly and helpful, there is a nice bar area and the room was big and clean with a large comfortable bed, essential after sightseeing all day! Breakfast was extra which meant we could go and try a different teahouse each morning. Overall we were really pleased and had a great stay in Brugge.
Fine for an overnight
Stayed here for an overnight. Great location, has underground parking (difficult in Brugges.) Breakfast was large with hot/cold choices.
Family friendly hotel. Rooms are very dorm-ish...no character except for looking out your window, but they were clean and functional. Staff friendly, willing to hold luggage.
