Brugge Hotels

The hotels in Brugge tend to be smaller and undeniably charming. Even the cheap hotels in Brugge usually exhibit a great deal of character, which only follows suit with the city of Brugge itself. This top tourist destination in Belgium is certainly a treat for anyone who is lucky enough to visit. Since some 4 million tourists flood into town each year, it’s usually a good idea to book a room at one of the Brugge Belgium hotels in advance when possible, especially in the summertime. Should you arrive and have trouble finding a room, head to the centrally located Burg square, where representatives at the tourism office there can help you find a place to rest your head at night. There are so many great hotels in Brugge that it’s hard to decide which ones to recommend, but the following examples are among the best.

There are a lot of excellent bed and breakfasts in Brugge to choose from, with the Cote Canal being one of the best. You’ll be situated right in the heart of Brugge’s historic old city center when you stay here, and to make things even better, the Cote Canal sits on the banks of one of the city’s more picturesque canals. It’s almost too good to be true! As mentioned, the Brugge Belgium hotels tend to be on the smaller side, as is the case with the bed and breakfasts in Brugge. This one, for example, only has two rooms. But they are spectacular ones. The Cote Canal maintains plenty of old world charm, and both of the guest rooms are luxurious, spacious, and beautifully decorated. Guestroom amenities include a flat-screen cable TV, a mini-bar, exquisite bedding, a dressing table, internet connections, and bathrobes. One of the rooms has a large bathtub in the en suite bathroom. Breakfast is included in the rates, and there is a nice salon bar onsite where you can enjoy a cocktail or beer after touring about the city. There are plenty of great restaurants nearby where you can grab lunch or dinner.

Just a five-minute walk from Markt and Burg squares, the Relais Bourgondisch Cruyce offers luxury in the heart of Brugge’s medieval city center. In fact, four medieval houses were conjoined to create the hotel. Perched on a canal, the Relais Bourgondisch Cruyce is amazingly attractive, and you might be interested to know that some of the movie In Bruges was filmed here. The sixteen rooms at the Relais Bourgondisch Cruyce are individually decorated, so while there are generally similar in style, each offers a slightly different feel. There are four different kinds of rooms to choose from, with the Superior Classic option being the most expensive. The amenities are those that you would expect at a luxury hotel, and among them are flat-screen TVs, data ports, fine carpets and fabrics, marble bathrooms, and complimentary toiletries. Hair dryers are also supplied. The evening turndown service is a nice touch, as is the available 24-hour room service. There is a restaurant at the Relais, and a bar and a tea room as well. Half board plans are available, which means that your breakfasts and dinners will be included in your rates. When it comes to the hotels in Brugge, the Relais Bourgondisch Cruyce is easily one of the best.

Finding hotels in Brugge that rest on a picturesque canal is the aim of many, and another one that you will want to consider is the Die Swaene, which is housed in a sixteenth century residence. All kinds of accolades are attached to this wonderful establishment, which boasts elegant rooms and an excellent restaurant. You’re just steps from the center of town when staying here, so you can enjoy city sightseeing tours at your leisure. The hotel even offers a free guided city tour option that guests can take advantage of. Like the Relais Bourgondisch Cruyce, the Die Swaene offers different room choices, so you can choose according to your budget. Even the standard single rooms, offer a flat-screen TV, a mini-bar, a comfortable bed, a bathroom, and a hair dryer. To help guests relax during their stay, the Die Swaene features a small indoor swimming pool and a sauna. An exercise room is available, and the bar or lounge is a great place to socialize with friends or fellow guests. A delightful breakfast buffet is included in the rates and the hotel’s staff definitely delivers on service. Considered to be one of the more romantic Brugge Belgium hotels, the Die Swaene is fantastic both inside and out.

When it comes to the cheap hotels in Brugge, of which there are a good amount, the Fevery is worth adding to your list of considerations. You get a good room at a good price here, and the location is quite convenient, adding to the hotel’s allure. The Fevery faces St Giles Church and can be found on a quiet street within walking distance of the center of town. The hotel’s owner knows all about the city and can help you plan tours and activities. Come summertime, a trip to a nearby Belgian beach is always a good idea, and since Brugge is an excellent destination for Belgian biking, you might choose to rent a bike right from the hotel. Those with a car rental will find adequate and free parking around the hotel. As a bonus, the hotel also has a complimentary buffet breakfast. The rooms at this 3-star hotel are clean and comfortable and feature renovated bathrooms, a telephone, and cable TV. Free wi-fi internet access is available to guests at the Fevery, and there is also a computer available for guest use if you don’t have one in tote.

It too has a great location and can save you money on your Brugge lodging expenses.
