Clean, comfortable, inexpensive

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on August 7, 2012

I stayed here for 4 nights in early August 2012.

It's next to the Bruges train station, so it served as an excellent base for me because I also took the train to Brussels and Gent--when I got back, I didn't have a long walk to my hotel.

Rooms are accessed via a door code. Mine was squeaky clean and in great shape. They're very modern and conceptually not dissimilar to some sort of capsule hotel in that they make an efficient use of space.

The toilet is in a little closet, and the shower is in the room (with frosted glass), so it only works for singles or people who know each other well. It has a pump with combination shampoo/shower gel. The shower head lights up--as far as I can tell, to indicate pressure and temperature.

Even though I stayed alone, I had a queen bed and a bunk above me. The bed was a bit hard but was otherwise fine. It had digital light controls over the top, so you could turn on individual bed lights, the room light, or a nightlight from bed. I wouldn't have minded somewhere I could sit properly and set my drink down, but you can only expect so much for a budget hotel.

Breakfast is not included, and I didn't pay to eat it, so I can't review that. I wish they'd included in-room coffee. That's my only notable beef with the room. Even just a minimal service of a couple packs of coffee and tea would be fine.

Unique Quality: It's probably the cheapest hotel in Bruges (it shows up that way on rankings, at least) and is next to the train station, making it convenient for traveling around.

Directions: When you walk out of the train station (towards the center of town), turn right and go up the escalators or stairs there and keep heading that way until you see the hotel (go up again to reach the ground floor).
