which hotel in Brugges

Hello, my husband, adult daughter and I will be spending 5 nights in Brugges on a trip next summer ( we are coming from Paris and going on to Amsterdam by train) we will do some daytrips into Ghent, Flanders fields, and possibly the coast. All 3 of us will be staying in one room I think I have it narrowed down to Hotel Cordoeanier or Hotel Ter Reien. Looking to spend no more than 150 euros a night and would love for it to be less! both of these are under that mark and include breakfast. Anyone ever stay at either and recommend? I am open to any and all suggestions as well as negative marks on these.

I've stayed at Hotel Cordoeanier and it's a fine place. Don't expect four-star comforts--it's pretty standard but it's clean and well located.

Hi Lori -

My husband and I stayed at the Hotel Ter Reien in May 2016 for 3 nights. We had a nice stay and enjoyed being on a canal. Our room was clean and comfortable. I would recommend as we didn’t have any issues with our stay.

Happy Travels!

Lori,

I've stayed at THIS hotel and would most definitely recommend it. It's right next to a canal so very scenic, and as I recall they had "loaner" bikes available as well as laundry facilities. The short bike ride to Damme is a nice way to spend a few hours and see the scenery.

We loved the Hotel Jan Brito. A little bit off the main plaza but a beautiful and peaceful stay with great service.

Lori, I'm a little late here but if you haven't booked yet you might check prices on this one?

We had a really nice 4-night stay in the White Suite apartment, and it has a 2nd bedroom that we didn't need but would be nice for your daughter. Breakfast is included in the tariff and while on the light side, was plenty for starting our days. The owner's family lives on site in their own quarters off the main floor, and the garden is great for kicking back with market-purchased beverages at the end of the day (stow them in the apt. fridge). Mr. Zenasni was lovely, has done the restoration work on the 18th-century structure himself, and gave us a tour of some the family's quarters.

Read a bit more about this property in this article:

One note: the apartment is on an upper floor and there's no lift. That wasn't an issue for us, once we got the bags up the first time, but the stairs are a bit steep, as they can be in many older buildings.

We stayed at the hotel Cordoeanier in 2013. Nothing fancy but the room was fine as was the breakfast. And it was an excellent central location. Just a block or two from the main square and convenient to public transit to the train station.

I’d avoid Cordoeanier or ask for a high floor. We just stayed there 3 nights. While the location is nice, the staff is nice, and the breakfast OK there were problems. They put us in room 52 which is on first floor. The only thing separating it from the bar Rose Red that shares space with hotel is a door. So unless you like to stay up until 1AM, avoid this rom & hotel, it gets very loud due to the bar and bar visitors. Also the room also has its windows out to a common area where people from the bar go out to smoke. They turn on a very bright light which would blind you if it wasn’t for their heavy shade. And to top it off the bathroom window has about 2 inch of clear glass on the top of the window and outside, in that common area, is a ladder where you can look through into the toilet and shower area. I covered with towel but warning others unless you think that’s OK. And if you have a car parking is a short walk which is miserable in the rain.
We told the desk man when we left about the noise but he didn’t seem to care. I’m sure they will spend time and fix it (sarcastic).

More kudos for the wonderful Hotel Adornes, their rooms, their staff and location. You might contact the owners and see what they can offer you in the way of suitable accommodations for the 3 of you.

We stayed at the Hans Memling a few years ago. It was not fancy but was pleasant enough. I'd stay there again.

Quick note - there's no such place as "Brugges". The city is called "Brugge" (in Dutch, the main local language) or "Bruges" (in French or English). You need to pay attention to spelling because many booking sites don't automatically correct spelling errors, and in the worst case scenario you could find yourself in totally the wrong place.
