Langestraat 38, Bruges, West Flanders, 8000, Belgium
July 2006. Staff & service very good. Our room were rather cramped with small TV, but that didn't bother us. Lucky enough to be there in a heatwave. If you are, be sure to ask for one of the rooms with air-conditioning! Has bar & more-than-adequate buffet-style breakfast, but no evening meals.
Located on Langestraat, only a few minutes walk from the town centre (and more eating places than you can shake a stick at), with frequent buses to the to the railway station from outside the hotel (1.50 Euro).
Though the hotel does have a car parkYou really DON'T WANT a car in Brugges. The streets are narrow and parking is very restricted. Besides, you can stroll right across the town in twenty-minutes or so! (PS Belgium trains are relatively cheap & frequent).
Unique Quality: Very small swimming pool. Adequate for a short swim if there's not too many people in there!
Directions: East of the town centre.
By car turn off the by-pass at Kruisport, left into Langstraat and the hotel is on the left.
From the railway station: buses 6 or 16 to Predikherenrei (the drivers all speak English!) & walk around the corner into Langestraat.

The Friendliest Hotel In Brugges
My wife and I stayed here from the 11th to the 13th of this month and will definitely be returning here on our next visit to Brugges. This was my fourth visit to Brugges in the last eighteen months and by far the most memorable. This was entirely due to the overwhelming professionalism, kindness, friendliness and politeness of all the staff of the Flanders Hotel.
Nothing was too much trouble for anyone and requests for recommended places to eat or visit were answered in depth.
The hotel was spotlessly clean and warm, which was what was required athis time of year.
I would unhesitatingly reccommend this hotel to anyone.
The Flanders Hotel was an excellent base for our visit to Bruges.On our arrival we were welcomed by extremely friendly and courteous staff. The hotel has its own car park a vital commodity in the town.Close to the city centre it has a very good location. The hotel was clean and well decorated. The rooms were spacious and well equipped with comfortable armchairs and table as well all the other usual facilities expected of a 4 star hotel. The swimming pool was an added bonus with towels and changing rooms provided. Breakfast was excellent with a large variety from bacon and egg to the wide range of continental meats and cheeses.
The map of the town with guided walks and information as well as a very excellent hotel booklet were extremely helpful.
I would recommend this hotel to my friends and colleagues and would stay here again.
Blooming with friendliness
From the moment we stepped foot inside the doors of the hotel we were greeted with a wonderfully warm atmosphere. The hotel had a warm Christmas atmosphere to it, decorated tastefully it was inviting. The staff were bubbling over with friendliness and were more than helpful with our stay. The rooms were well cared for as was the tasty breakfast. Thank you.
Service second to none !
We arrived a day late - not the best way to begin a short vacation ! Steve, the hotel Manager, Elke and Jasmin welcomed like life long friends - despite the fact we had never stayed in the Hotel before!
We wondered if we would have a room to sleep in, but were quickly put at ease. After a very short and very pleasant wait in the lounge ( with free hospitality !)
we were shown to our room. The second night we were given an even more luxurious room !
Throughout our stay Steve and Elke really went out of their way to be helpfull and welcoming - even to the extent of making phone calls and bookings for us.
I can truly say that NEVER have I experienced better & friendlier service from ANY hotel whatever the star rating!
As soon as I can arrange some free days - I'll be back ! The hotel owners can and should be proud of their front line staff in Hotel Flanders !

Quaint, Clean and Friendly
My wife and I had the pleasure of staying at the Flanders in the Fall of 2003. We found the accommodations very comfortable and well located for exploring this beautiful medieval "Venice of the North" on foot. Our last night in Brugge will be remembered as one of many highlights of a wonderful two week trip to Europe. We met two extremely nice couples from Scotland in the little bar/lounge that night and shared a very nice evening together over perhaps two many drinks as was punctuated by the headache the next morning on our train trip to Amsterdam. All in all, a very nice hotel, nice guests, friendly staff......
Great staff, mediocre room
We stayed in Brugges at the start of December for three nights. The hotel was fine but nothing more, the rooms were clean but pretty uninspiring and the walls were paper thin - not ideal especially as we had the neighbours from hell next door. They seemed to spend their entire trip arguing at high-volume... You wonder why they bothered going on holiday together.
On the plus side The reception staff were fantastic and very helpful when it came to suggestions for dining out. We had an excellent meal in a restaurant just down from the hotel called Rockfort - newly opened and whilst not the cheapest, the food was top drawer. We also dined at The Park restaurant one night, bit less expensive but great service and very good food. Breakfast in the hotel was good value. Location was OK easy walking distance into the centre of Brugges (15mins) but not close enough to easily pop back with any shopping or just to escape the rain which arrived on a few occasions. Walking around Brugges there are a lot of other hotels that are much closer.
Travelled by Eurostar and then local train from Brussels - very pleasant trip and much more relaxing than flying. We arrived just in time for the Christmas market - the market itself is a little disappointing but the Ice Rink in the middle of the square is fantastic.
Brugges itself is a really lovely place, picture postcard pretty and the atmosphere is very friendly. We spent most of the days just walking around the streets and sampling the belgian beer of course. A great place to visit is the Halve Maan brewery - the tour of the brewery is very worthwhile and the only museum where they encourage you to bring your beer with you as you walk around. A practise that other museums should adopt. One beer worth trying is the cherry beer which you can get in most of the bars - tastes better than it sounds.
We'd absolutely go back to Brugges but probably pay a little more for a more central hotel with a few more trimmings.
The Best Hotel in Bruges.
We have just returned from a week in Bruges. What a beautiful city it is. Full of culture and so many good places to eat out.
What made it "special" for us was the hotel.
We stayed at the Hotel Flanders, Langestraat 38. Brugge.(www.flandershotel.be) It is only a few minutes walk from the city centre but so quiet and peaceful you would think you were out of town.
The staff are absolutely wonderful - nice and so very very helpful, nothing is too much for them.
The rooms are spotlessly clean, bright and airy. There is also a small swimming pool which is also very clean and well maintained.
The breakfast menu is varied and there is something for everyone's taste. You can have as much or as little as you wish.
I would recommend this wonderful hotel without hesitation to everyone.
My husband and I spent three nights here on a long weekend. We found the hotel staff from the moment of our arrival to be helpful, cheerful and informative. The hotel was very clean and comfortable. It was also well situated being close enough to the centre to stroll easily in 10 minutes but far enough away to be peaceful at night. The service was good without being intrusive. There were many good bars and restaurants also within walking distance (ask the staff for a recommendation). All in all we would have no hesitation about returning here or recommending it to others.
Return Visit to the Flanders on the Cards.
My wife and I had the pleasure of staying in this hotel in November, and I have to say it was superb. The staff were friendly. The room was comfortable and more important to me and my wife clean!
The small pool while not very big and not large enough for training Scottish swimmers is a great wee escape, after a day of walking around the city.
Breakfast was excellent and the lady who was constantly refilling the foodstufs was courteous and helpful. One night, the restaurant we wanted was closed ( it was the end of November) the young lady on recepetion was helpful and tried to get us into another one. Staff a full 10/10 ...and thats no...rubbish.
Good points local for the centre stay away from the pubs in the square, got stung there for a few beers.
However, come out of the Flanders turn right and there are some great wee friendly pubs cheaper and more interesting than the touristy ones in the centre.
All in all apart from having torn cruciate ligaments which I did not know I had done, the hotel the place and the history make it a great weekend destination.
