We stayed at the Martin's Relaise in Bruges for three nights. The location is great, in Van Eyck Square, an easy walk to the main square and anything you want to see in Bruges. We arrived by train and it is a 15 minute bus ride from the train station to the hotel, but once you are there you can...

Dear Bostontraveler8479, Thank you for taking the time to write this extensive report on your stay in Martin’s Relais. Our hotel is located in 5 existing mansions which are now interconnected, it is full of level differences, and also (due to the rich history of the building) vaulted basements. Room 99 used to be one of these ‘basements’, which is...

My husband and I booked a trip for our wedding anniversary via Eurostar and chose this hotel based on its location. We were not disappointed! We were given room 25 which is 2nd floor garden view with gorgeous little decked balcony. Unfortunately, the room safe wasn't working and although the hotel offered us the use of hotel safe, we asked...

the hotel is run down and in need of updating. I appreciate its history but new carpet, paint, bedding are dearly needed. It is in a lovely location in Bruges, walking distance to everything you would want to do. I would suggest getting a room faced the inner courtyard if you want quiet. This hotel has huge potential.

Dear Lisaleslie, Thank you for the time you took to share your experience on Tripadvisor. I am glad to read that –even though you did not like every aspect of the hotel- you have appreciated the history of our building and its location. As our building is a classified monument, we are not allowed to do big renovation works. We...

Quick trip to Bruges, which is a lovely place well preserved and charming. The Hotel Martin's - hmmmmm, lets see.

Very nice location, quiet, central Minor annoyance at check in as my name was wrong on the reservation which meant the wifi...

Martin's Relais is an ideal location for a visit to Brugge. It is situated a few blocks from the main square of Brugge, not too close too be noisy but not to far to walk. The atmosphere is relaxing with its old world charm. The staff is very attentive and helpful. The rooms are large and ours had a lovely...

We booked a canal view double and spent 3 nights here. Wow the room was fantastic. Very large spacious room with huge bathroom. We had a canal view from the main room and bathroom overlooked the garden. Opening windows gave us wonderful airflow. The bed was exceptional as was all bedding and linen. We chose not to include breakfast as...

Martin's Relais is a beautiful and convenient hotel that, while being just a few minutes walk from the center of the old town, makes you feel as though you are in a private little heaven. We stayed for 3 nights and truly enjoyed it. It is literally an historic site, with signage pointing out that it is "Amsterdam Oud Huis"....

We stayed in a "superior double" which was lovely and big, and had more than enough room for the extra bed we needed. The breakfast selection was very good. The hotel is a little bit worn around the edges, and could do with a bit of a spruce up. For example the lampshade in the room was held on to...

Loved this hotel!!! Not sure why it didnt get 5 green circles. Stayed here for a few nights, fabulous location, 5 mins from the big square, but just far enough to not be in the tourist circus with the tour guides and horse drawn carriages running you over when you leave the hotel.

We had a very pleasant 3D2N stay at Hotel Martin's Relais. The triple room was very spacious and comfortable. The staff at the check in / check out were very efficient and friendly.
