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.
Just the job after 2 weeks camping!
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 thought it was great but then we had spent a couple of weeks in a tent in France prior to heading to Brugges for the ferry home. After our tenting "fun" you might say any hotel would have been heaven. The hotel staff were friendly and helpful giving us help on where to store our bikes rather than using the underground car park. Room was 3* basic but comfortable, spotlessly clean and the breakfast was good value and enjoyable. Nice wee bar area although being in Brugge itself you won't want to hang aroungd the hotel, more like get out and about as there's some really great bars & restaurants and stuff to see and do.
If I needed to stop off again for a night or two then this would be dandy - great internet price too.
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.

... Shop. Our afternoon we filled with a canal cruise past all the elegant houses of wealthy merchants and then a wander down Damrak to the Bourse (old stock exchange).
Saturday and again the locals are slow to start and so were we. However, it was a good time to head off to Albert Cuyp to the market which fills the street for several blocks. Then, marketed out we headed towards the Museum Quarter especially towards the Rijks Museum. We expected to see long queues as ...

Our main agenda for our trip to Brugge was to simply appreciate the city, so after our lunch and some more time spent soaking in the architecture, we moved on to our next next stops which focused on much more modern history.

... to find out what would happen if they wrapped in the gears. I pulled over to tie and tuck them in; no issue but was at the end of the group as I needed to catch up. I also noticed that the sun was strong and the trail was hard to see the hazards as the early morning had the sun right in our eyes. Just as the pace was relaxed and rolling through the parks you heard a bang and saw someone crunch over the handle bars. Even though there was nothing you can do, it was painful to see ...
... and over a canal that had quite a few swans in it last night. Dad seemed to be very interested in seeing the swans and luckily there were a few there when we arrived. Conveniently enough, this is also the same spot where we were able to catch our canal tour. The tour was great and is a really nice way to see some of Bruges. The boat captain/narrator was difficult to understand at times, but the scenery was fantastic. Bruges, back in the day, rivaled London in terms of wealth ...
... for the Fremantle v Geelong game. I wish I stayed in bed! After the flogging I went for a walk into town and checked out the church which claims to have a phial containing Christ's blood (Basilica of the Holy Blood). I'm a bit skeptical but there were lots of people willing to line up to pray with it. I went to the Belfry (Bell Tower) in order to climb it, however the line was very long (and it cost 6 euros) so I gave it a miss. I decided to go for a run, as the local ...
