Brugge Hotel - Any Suggestions?

I have been looking for a hotel in the center of Brigge for a 2 night stay in September. They all appear to be similar in price and amenities. Any suggestions would be appreciated. We will also have a car that I will need to park at the hotel as well. Would like to stay under $100 USD per night

Thanks....

Steve,
Take a look at the website www.terduinenhotel.be The hotel is located in the northeast section of the inner city. It's about a ten minute walk to the bell tower square. The hotel offers free parking directly in front of its entrance. The photos on the website are truly representative of the hotel's rooms. Breakfasts, included in the rates, are sumptuous. Rates are under $100 a night. Best recommendation I can give is that we've been there three times.

Steve: We stayed at Hotel Cordinear (sp?) in Brugge. It was very near the Mkt square, but I don't know about parking. Nice people. Decent rooms, o.k.breakfast, approx. $75 a night.

Hi - last year we stayed in brugge overnight at,I believe, the DaVinci - but would not repeat the visit tho it was not horrendous. We had originally considered the Hotel Bourgoensche Cruyce and after we saw it we were sorry we did not stay there after all. Lovely quaint hotel - not sure of rates, but i must say checking the name again i see they only have 5 rooms. But it was lovely from the outside - old charming building overlooking one of the prettiest canals.

Steve,
It's a ten or fifteen minute stroll from the hotel to the bell tower square, about six blocks in all. Only one is a long block. From Ter Duinen, exit the hotel and turn right. Walk canalside on Langerei. You'll cross over a canal going to your right. Once over, turn left onto Genthof and contine to Vlamingstraat. Turn left and you'll see the bell tower at the end of the street. Stop in the information office just of bell tower square and pick up a free brochure that lists five self paced walking tours through Brugges. The maps accompanying the brochure are excellent. If you wear yourself out or it starts pouring, on your return to the hotel you can pick up a bus that goes to Ter Duinen's front door. You'll find bus info at the information office. Parking is either impossible or costly in the heart of the city. Ter Duinen is one of the few hotels I know of with safe, free on street parking.

At the end of June I stayed at the Acacia Hotel in the center of town and most rooms are full apartments- bedroon, living room and kitchen. The smaller rooms don't have a separate living room. We love having a place to cook a little although I know most people prefer to be served while they are away. We didn't have a car but they have parking, a nice lobby area, and the rooms are quiet despite the central location. The one potential problem is that they are sometimes listed as having air conditioning but they don't. We didn't need it and you probably won't in September but its something to be aware of. Have a great time wherever you stay.

Did some checking; the hotel we used in brugge was called the Hotel Dante (not the DaVinci as I previously posted). Nice people, but too far from the main part of town.

As is the Ter Duinen, IMHO.

Hotel Van Eyck

We stayed there in April and the hosts are wonderful. Simple rooms but very clean. Great location, 5 minute walk to the Belfry, if that. Around $70US, and you can also get an advantage card for discounts.

Enjoy!!!

We stayed at the Flanders Hotel in Brugge. It is a 5 minute walk to the main square. Very nice,16 room hotel with free parking. The rooms were nice and quite large, very clean.
We paid $80.00 a night and that includes breafast. Have fun, thats a wonderful city.

We stayed at the Crowne Plaza (Holiday Inn) two weeks ago and it was wonderful. Large rooms, friendly staff and a fabulous location just steps away from everything. We even received USA TODAY each day which was a nice treat.

We just returned from a wonderful trip to Brugge and stayed at the Romantik Pandhotel, terrific location, if you have a rental car with out of Belgium plates you can park on the street, in front of the hotel, which is a dead end to a canal street, no meters or ticket, free to out of country tourists, wonderful hotel, they have a site with pictures on the web, good breakfasts, eggs to your pleasure, fruit etc and very nice rooms, it was on the upper end of moderate but we stayed there two days and the location made it worth it, we didn't use our car at all and really saw the sites. There were four of us and I think the price was in the mid $100's, I don't know what one room would be.I'd love to be going again.

Hotel Jacobs was our base for four nights in September. Immaculate, quiet, English spoken, pleasant people, first-class breakfast. A 10-minute walk to Market Square. On-street free parking. Three stars. I would have to check, but I think we paid about $75 a night for a big double with full bath, breakfast included. They are on e-mail, and so we made our reservations directly with a quick reply.

forgot to put in my recommends - Hotel Bourgoensche Cruyce (3 star) on the canal and across the canal Die Swaene(4 star) - get canal view rooms. Right next door to the Bourgoensche Cruyce is a great canal side bar...wonderful restaurant at the Die Swaene

We stayed at the Hotel deSnippe at the end of Sep/2000 in the old section of Brugge. They had a rose and chocolates waiting for us in our top floor room. A lovely reception after a long day of travel. I would highly suggest making a reservation for the dining room as well. Their pre-fixe with wines was an easy choice. Your table is yours the entire evening so there' no rushing to sit or leave.

Enjoy Brugge and bring an umbrella this season.
