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.

Well, we did sleep well, and left the lovely Holland site. I think we may come back here. We drove past Antwerp and the traffic built up, so of course Sat Nav Sally took us on a scenic detour, luckily for us. We passed a beautiful place called Damme, which we definitely go back to, just a few miles out of Bruges. Imagine long straight …
... on a collision course. Right before they reached us, 3 went through and Steve and I allowed them to go on thinking they would go straight and pass us. But the group turned down the same trail. Once all 20-30 of them passed, we started behind them. Steve was laughing that he shouldn't have been a nice Canadian and let them go ahead; then stated when at least we have an excuse when we get to the group so late (we are so slow). Then as we started following we were surprised ...
... as lunch for the most part has been various types of sandwiches on this trip. The pizza was pretty good, but can't touch the pizza in Italy.
After lunch, Dad was ready for a break/nap so we took him back to the apartment so he could get some rest. After getting him settled in, the rest of us went to climb to the top of the Bell Tower. The views from the top of the tower were great in every direction. We were also up there when the clock struck 3pm and all of the ...
... and the as soon as I go in, people flock behind me. I'd like to think I'm a trendsetter, but I doubt it's that simple. Anyway, we got on the boat, with the weird old dude who was videotaping his entire trip. We'd seen him up in the tower earlier, taping the bells! People are so weird. We sat at the back of the boat, but it wasn't full yet, so we sat there sweating and breathing in the gas fumes from the running motor until we were squished in like sardines and ...
... as an 'experience'... learn about life in the Middle Ages. The animated wax work figures were unbelievable life-like, and the presentation was involved and clever, but the amount of actual content was weak and there was not really an awful lot to see.
The views from the roof were wonderful though and the "Duvelorium" was fun. Duvel has won Lisa over and it is certainly our favourite beer.... at least so far...
So we went in search ...
