Hotels in Bruges

Up to Bruges

Bruges as some suggest the most romantic and medieval town of Europe, and i do understand where that idea is coming from. This city in the norht of Belgium and quite close to the sea, which was the major reason of its important place in history.

The Zwin was a gateway to open sea which degraded year after year during the middle ages, untill there was no possibiliy anymore to make port in Bruges. The remainders of the Zwin are still to be found in knokke. Might be an idea to stay one night in a hotel in Knokke or a hotel in Blankenberge or maybe even a hotel in Oostende to visit the beautiful coast of Flanders.

As i was saying, Bruges is now still like the city it was 600 years ago, burstling with life and ... tourists. This city accomodates yearly millions of tourist but i must say the city is completely prepared for it and you won't have the feeling it is to busy.

There are numerous sites to visit all over the town so tourists are spread evenly over the city. Just as in Brussels I choose for a budget hotel in Brugge for 2 nights and 1 night in a beautiful luxury hotels Bruges. as a De Luxe hotel in Brugge i choose hotel Die Swaene located just of the old market and next to one of the many canals in this city.

As a budget hotel in Brugge my eyes fell on hotel het Voermanshuys in Bruges which has an equal great location but is of course not a luxe hotel in Brugge.

There are numerous hotels in Bruges which makes it quite difficult to decide about the perfect hotel Bruges. It all depends on how much money you are able to spend. This city offers badly enough no 5 star hotels but most of the 4 star hotels in Bruges are that good that it doesn't really matter that Bruges has no 5 star hotels.

Almost all hotels in Brugge are situated within the old city centre thus walking distance from your hotels brugge is never much. I personally found my stay in Bruges to short in comparison to my stay in Brussels, i should have stayed about 2 days in Brussels and move to a hotel Brugge for 5 days. This would have made it possible to really visit the town.

I must say that i was pleasantly surprised cause my hotels Brugge where of the finest i visited. A hotel in Brugge even the cheapest ones are well worth there money.
