We took a two week road trip to Europe and the only hotel we booked before going over was this one which was for our first night because we knew we would have jet lag. The hotel is made from an old barge and sits on a river. If you're looking for a fun and different hotel, this is a...

The De Barge Hotel is a converted barge. So, if you are looking for marble bathrooms or a suite of rooms you are going to be disappointed. The rooms were small, but very comfortable, functional and well-appointed. It is hilarious to enter your "cabin" to find life jackets prominently displayed on the bed. We were on the lower "deck" and...

We stayed here for two nights in the Officer's cabin, which was an absolute delight. The room was very large and contained a doublr bed, escritoire, small sofa, jacuzzi bath with seperate shower and was decorated in wonderful nautical theme that is tasteful and not trashy. The room also had views over the canal so one could watch other barges...

The rooms were quite small, bit out of the town and felt a bit tired. Things such as the curtains were stained, the carpet was old, the phone wasn't working. We also had to pay an extra 5 Euro a night premium for a water view. Finally, the walls were wafer thin so could hear everything neighbours were doing! Not...

Currently in this hotel being "fumigated" in our room by guests who are allowed to smoke elsewhere on the barge. The smokers are downstairs in a "lounge" next to the dining room, however, the smoke has found it's way into our room upstairs and not even directly above where the smokers are. It seems to be coming through the holes...

Stayed here for two nights, Christmas markets and just a quick break. Rooms were small but adequate. Clean and warm. Very good breakfast, easy walk into the centre of Bruges. Fed the ducks out of the window, they were waiting so it must be a regular occurrence. I would recommend this Hotel for easy parking and just far enough away...

We stayed for two nights and loved it. You only know it's a barge because yes, the rooms are small and the decoration is very nautical. But it's modern, really well thought out and converted. If you want a soulless hotel with bigger rooms, and ambiance out of a procedures manual, then there are plenty of chain hotels out there...

We have just returned from 3 nights at this hotel. We chose this hotel as we actually live on a barge ourselves so thought it would be nice to stop on somebody else's for a change and we were not disappointed. We had booked the Captains Cabin which had plenty of room for just the two of us and our...

We absolutely loved staying in this quirky hotel, it was so different! Having read the reviews which complain about space, I can recognise that the 'cabin' rooms were snug but that is because the hotel is an actual barge not just made to be like a barge. The service was friendly and helpful and the breakfast offered a great range...

Stayed here for one night in August. Easy enough to find with a satnav, check in quick and easy. We were given a map of Bruges which came in handy when we went out exploring! Our room was at the far end which proved a bit awkward to get to at night as it was pitch black and no lighting!...
