Hotel Azalea

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on August 2, 2005

After I had booked this hotel, I read a rather critical review of the Azalea (on another website I hasten to add) which set me worrying as to whether I had made the right choice of hotel.
Shame on me for that as the hotel was great and the review I’d read nothing like the experience we had there.
The negative review had mentioned that the hotel’s fixtures and fittings were shabby. Well, one person’s shabby is another person’s ‘lived in’! I found the eclectic mix of furniture in the public areas – bar, breakfast room, foyer – charming. They gave the hotel character, rather than the uniform but antiseptic furniture found in some chain hotels. Shabby also has connotations of being unclean, well that is not true. The room we stayed in was very clean, tidy and with an indulgently comfy bed. Marvellous for resting tired feet, tummies and heads after a day of walking, eating and drinking in Bruges!
Breakfast is served in two rooms, both with a kind of Regency feel to them. One – with a glass chandelier - overlooks the canal while the other, smoking room, has striped wallpaper and stained glass windows that overlook the street. Breakfast itself is a mixture of cheeses, meats, bread, pastries, preserves, fruit, cereal, scrambled eggs and bacon. Quite delicious! There is also a small bar and terrace, open from 7.00 pm, which like the breakfast room overlooks the canal. A lovely place to start your evening with an aperitif or round it off with a nightcap.
What can often make the difference between a nice hotel and a terrific one is the service and at the Azalea this was excellent. Everyone we spoke to or had dealings with were friendly, helpful and made you feel at ease.
I would have no hesitation in recommending the Azalea, particularly to people who enjoy small, family style hotels, and would certainly stay there again.

Unique Quality: Great location, less than 10 minutes walk to the Markt, less than 5 minutes to the nearest shopping streets, canalside setting, quiet street

This is a lovely little hotel with 25 rooms. It is situated on a quiet street next to a canal. The building was originally a residence.

I paid 110 euro which included breakfast.

Unique Quality: From the website:

Discover behind the walls of a rebuilt patrician residence and old brewery, dating from the 14th century, the charm of a hotel as the place to stay in Bruges whether you are travelling on business or pleasure.
The Azalea Hotel is located in the center of the city, in a quiet spot along the picturesque Speelmansrei canal.

The Azalea Hotel has 25 charming rooms.
All are equipped with television, telephone, radio, minibar, trouserpress, safe, tea/coffee facilities.
Private bathroom with bath, shower, toilet, hairdryer and cosmetic mirror.
Rooms with view on canal and garden!

Dating from the 14 century, the building now used as the Azalea hotel was once the charming home of prominent members of the local gentry and also contained a small brewery.

Unique Quality: Rooms are beautifully decorated and spacious. You can have your breakfast (buffet) in a very beautiful dining room. The bar enjoys views over the canal and gardens and has an attractive terrace.

Directions: It is located in the centre of the city, at 50 m from the Zand square and 200 m from the Market square, in a quiet spot along the picturesque Speelmansrei canal.
