Albert 1 Hotel
Ranked #15 of 97 Hotels in Bruges
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 5 October 2017

This hotel is in easy walking distance of the Bruges station and is a short 15 minute walk from the centre. The room although small (which is quite typical of many hotels in Europe) was comfortable and clean. The washroom was spotless and actually quite spacious with ample counter space to place all your toiletries. The breakfast was fine (although there was no toast) and the staff, in particular, the manageress, were friendly and very helpful. Although we didn't use it, the hotel also has a sitting lounge where you can relax. Good value.

Perfectly situated hotel for the sights, around 10 minute stroll from the main square along shop-lined streets.

The only down side for me was the room. Whilst it was clean and comfortable with a small but well laid out bathroom, room 1 was right next to reception with a bus terminus just outside and construction work down the street, all of which meant my stay was rather noisy.

There's no kettle in the room, but you can get tea and coffee with breakfast which is plentiful - cereals, meat, cheese, fruit and pastries.

I'd definitely stay in the hotel again, but would request a rear-facing room on a higher floor.

Room Tip: Avoid room 1.

The hotel is conveniently located a short walk from all the major attractions. There is a lot of road work going on at the moment but we were not inconvenienced by noise at all ( although we had specifically asked for rooms at the rear of the hotel which probably helped) As others have mentioned there is no lift, but we were offered help with our luggage.
The rooms are small, but spotlessly clean and really comfortable beds.
Good continental breakfast and the lady serving was extremely pleasant and helpful. Likewise Christoph was so helpful in recommending places to eat and drink, answering questions etc etc

Outstanding customer service, would definitely recommend

IFriendly staff and nice room. It is your quissential European Inn.

My parents stayed across the street at the NH Hotel, which was slightly more upscale and similar to an "American" hotel (large rooms and bathroom, espresso maker in room,etc.).I chose the Albert because rooms were sold out at NH. Very happy with my choice. It was quiet, quaint and within walking distance (5 min) to the center of town.

Because of severe road and construction works this hotel was a little difficult to find. However once we had unloaded and parked in the car park opposite we were shown to a very nice room on 3rd floor.
The owner and staff are pleasant and helpful. Breakfast was good (continental) and overall it was excellent value for money. Just a 30 second walk to the start of the old town and plenty of bars and cafes.

Classic hotel in great location with impeccable service. Huge parking lot just steps from the hotel. Though there were repairs in front of the hotel at the time we were there and we needed to take detours, it was just a small inconvenience.
