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.

Today I took a paddle wheel river boat to the small town of Damme, which is only 6 km from Brugge. It would be an easy bike ride or a pleasant walk along the canal, but I chose the slower paced boat. It took me about 45 minutes to walk to the dock from my hotel. The walk included the windmills that I saw yesterday. The temperature slowly climbed as the day went on, but the morning walk was pleasant.
The boat is called ...
... It still has whipped cream and powdered sugar on it, but oh my goodness does it taste like heaven. Belgium is also known for waffles for a reason! Once we finally found city centre (it wasn't actually hard to find, we just kept getting sidetracked), we decided to go into something called the Historium. It's a very clever way of teaching you about the history of Bruges by utilizing all 5 senses and sending you back in time through a day in the life of a boy, Jacob, who was ...
... recommended and the special Flemmish dish: beef carbonnade, a beef and beer stew with apple sauce. Brian really liked it and he kept saying that he didn't think he would like the applesauce in the stew but that it really was very good. Not wanting to hold the table for a long time and stress the waitress, we headed out as soon as we could.
Of course, there were canal tours and I would have liked to have boarded ...
... morning we woke up really early and got Belgium waffles for breakfast! It was so good but just not very filling! They are not like american waffles at all haha They are just light and pretty sugary though. We walked around the Market after breakfast and did some shopping, walking through all the different tents that were set up. It was so cool to see all the food and clothing that they were selling. They even had a fresh fish stand! ...
... though it seems to attract a similar crowd to the lovers lake. I'm surprised Mum didn't turn the hose on them! (In fairness, Mum probably didn't even notice them).
One last stop at the supermarket to pick up some salad greens to supplement our almost entirely brown diet and then a guilty night in, rugged up against the unanticipated cold, watching TV.
Another beautiful day in Bruges even though it was overcast it didn't detract from the ...
