      quaint and cute

      a lovely hotel, quaint and old style, walking distance from the centre and away from noise...a bit on the old side and with NO elevator, it's a little difficult getting luggage up and down narrow stairwells

      Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Ter Brughe Brugge

      A hotel of two halves

      from

      Just back from the this hotel. I, too, had read these reviews, and thought that as the more recent reviews were more positive, it must have had a makeover. Disappointingly, this wasn't the case. My husband and I had booked an ultra-cheap deal, so were expecting an, er, simpler room. Which we got (experiencing same decor-distress and noise problems as writer of 'This is not a 4 star' below). But, the upper bedrooms are lovely, the downstairs bar is a nice place to relax after a day out on the cobbles, and the cellar breakfast area is atmospheric. Basically, you very much get what you pay for. If you pay for a bargain room, you will get a thin-walled, early '80s style room (with nice view). If you pay normal prices, you will experience the Better Half of the hotel. It's not going ever going to be a "we only paid 30 and got a palatial room" kind of hotel. But if you're out all day, are a heavy sleeper and want to be in centre of town, then it's fine. I wouldn't recommend it though...unless you have the 'normal priced' rooms. Grill the receptionist before making a reservation!

      Charming, with Reservations...

      from

      This quaint hotel is well located in Brugge along one of its many canals. My husband likes the window open at night, and discovered that the canal's mosquitoes enjoyed feasting on him, as he had two dozen bites the next day. Also, as other reviewers have stated, the bathroom leaves much to be desired. The tub with a shower hose but no curtain meant a sopping wet bathroom floor. The room was postage stamp size, and the bed a bit saggy. But... the staff was very friendly/helpful, and the complimentary breakfast buffet made the stay a good value. We didn't find noise to be an issue; it was a very peaceful sleep. It isn't a modern luxury hotel, but that is not what you come to Brugge for, now is it?

      Wonderful

      from

      Just had to say that I too was concerned about the initial 2 reviews which I had not read until just before booking into the hotel. ( I had been travelling in Europe for about a month and another party made the reservations)

      However, it was a pleasant surprise and everything was perfect. (June 1-3/04) A huge comfortable room with enough room to swing ten cats!. The breakfast room was very charming and the food more than adequate. Staff were extremely and I cannot emphasize this enough, extremely helpful and considerate!!! My travel companion had a severe toothache and the kindly gentleman at the front desk immediately found us a dentist nearby. We would recommend this hotel to anyone. It was one of the few places that I stayed whereby I truely felt rested by the time I left. Very comfortable indeed!!

      Charming hotel

      from

      I too was apprehensive having seen some reviews. Stayed here on June 3 in Rooms 23/24. Clean comfortable with bright, well-lit bathroom. Lovely settting overlooking canal. Bearing in mind that these rooms are only 130 Euros a night for such a centrally placed hotel in a city that is a major tourist centre they were more than adequate. The hotel was busy but we did not find it at all noisy. if you prefer faceless, bland rooms that belong to a hotel chain where one could not tell where in the world one was you will be disappointed with Ter Brughe. Okay it didn't have a power shower but personally I prefer a place with character. The staff were also very pleasant.

      Would also recommend a restarurant called den Amand one minutes walk from the Markt. Run by a young couple serving traditional fayre but served with a modern twist. one of the best meals we have had anywhere in Europe with friendly service. Recommend booking as very small.

      Beautiful room - quiet, canal-side location

      from

      This hotel is only a few blocks from the central marketplace, and is on a very quiet and lovely canal. We stayed in two rooms on the upper floors of the newer section, and they were beautiful rooms. Would have liked a real shower, but the shower attachments for the tub were manageable, and the room was so pretty we did not want to ask for another. The front desk was always friendly and helpful. They sent us to a great restuarant. I would stay here again.

      Great hotel

      from

      Before going to Bruges, I had read 2 recent reviews on tripadvisor that were very disappointing and was a bit concerned about what this hotel would be like. I need not have worried as it was excellent and in a perfect, peaceful location on a pretty stretch of a canal, but close to centre. We had a lovely room which had everything that we needed, the staff were friendly and helpful. The breakfast room overlooks the canal and there was a very adequate buffet. I would certainly recommend it and stay there again.

      Very Disappointing!

      from

      WHAT A DISAPPOINTMENT! The 'Rough Guide To Belgium' calls this hotel "very pleasant," but I strongly disagree! The same guide also lists the Ter Brughe as a four-star hotel -- as do some websites -- but it's much more like a TWO-star hotel. The hotel is in a centuries-old building with charm, but the creaking floors and thin walls mean EXCESSIVE NOISE around-the-clock; light sleepers won't get any rest at all here! The management must be ignoring upkeep of the property or else they'd replace the threadbare curtains and linens and the towels with holes in them big enough to put your fist through -- unbelievable! One more thing: if you're asthmatic or simply averse to smoke, avoid this place as cigarette smoke pervades all the furniture - yuk!!

      Not 4 Star!

      from

      We booked this hotel on the understanding that it was 4 star rated accommodation, sadly we found this not to be the case. The furnishings were very basic and gloomy, the T.V. was ancient and didn't even come with remote control. The bathroom was very dated and the 'shower' was just a hose fixed to the taps. There was no shower screen or curtain.

      Tiling was cracked and there was old fashioned lino on the floor and up the side of the bath. As another reviewer stated, the noise between rooms was incredible and we were kept awake by a fellow guest snoring in the room above! Brugge was lovely though and we would recommend anyone to visit this lovely old town.

      Great Hotel in Brugge

      from

      Very close (within a two/three block walk) of the main squares, this hotel was clean, comfortable and friendly. Large rooms for Europe, with great view of one of the canals. Breakfast buffet (included) was awesome. Only drawback was soundproofing, little privacy, as you could hear conversations clearly of people in the next room, but (hopefully) only in the bathroom!

      Attractive Ter Brughe

      from

      Seven of us stayed here for three nights and loved it. Many rooms have views over the canal with the flood lit bridges at night. Top rooms are beamed and breakfast is in the lovely vaulted cellar. The staff were very helpful. Neither lunch nor dinner are served but this is no problem as Bruges has so many lovely places. Ter Brughe is only 10 mins walk for the central market place. Nice bar to meet up in but they are hotel prices!

      Final Morning and Final Thoughts

      ... light bulbs, the dodgy electrical socket, the faulty phone (our ‘alarm calls’ were refreshingly absent on our final night…), the bathroom that you cannot swing a very small cat in… but I don’t. After all, we have still enjoyed our stay immensely, and unlike some, don’t let these things get in our way of a good trip.

      ... 2 massive cathedrals which were beautiful and they both had their organs playing which made the whole experience that whole lot better. We walked through an active convent that asked for you to be silent when in the grounds and the atmosphere was amazing with everyone just walking around silently and the sound of the birds and then the convent church bell chiming.

      We stopped half way at about 12pm for Belgian Waffles and tea which was so good and ...

      Trip to Ghent, Belgium

      A travel blog entry by shivva14 on Jun 07, 2008

      This was a trip waited for the end of conference. 45 minutes drive away and no hassle of immigrations. You dont worry about passport travelling within EU. Ghent ( Gent ) is one hell of a beautiful historical city with ancient architecture . The word "hell" for the fact that few hundreds years back beheading and hanging people for talking against government or religion is normal and acceptable! One of the Ghents hero, with a status in the middle of city was beheaded ...
