"Classic and one of a kind"
The hotel was a little hard to find. After circling three times we actually saw the hotel and drove to it. It is on a little side road. Our GPS got us close but no turkey. The service and breakfast were excellent. The rooms are small. The bathroom was very small. If you have a big beer belly you might not fit in the shower. Since I don't I made do. The quaintness of it and the location made up for the inconvenience. It is also a short walk to to the old town.

"Floating hotel a 20 minute walk from city center"
Although the weather was terrible during our stay in Brugges, the Boat Hotel De Barge was a welcome place to hide from the elements. The staff was happy to help us find and order delivery dinner since it was too windy and rainy to venture out the night we stayed with them. Walk up the canal and turn straight into the city center within minutes. Brugges is a beautiful city. Although the city center is often crowded with visitors in the summer and on weekends other times of the year, there are many activities and places to visit. One of our rainy day favorites is the Groeninge Museum and, of course, the chocolate and beer shops. Be sure to visit the Minnewaterpark on a sunny day.

"Room Afloat"
This really is an old barge refit as a hotel. The rooms (cabins) are small - but very tidy and well maintained. The staff is very friendly and accommodating. Location is not right in the hear of the city. City center is a very pleasant walk - about 20 min to a half hour. Easy walk to the train station. There are no restaurants nearby (at least 15 min walk into the town. The restaurant at the hotel is open only on weekends and is very good - though maybe a little high-end if you are on a budget. Cozy little bar.

"Delightful Getaway"
The hotel is a VERY short walk from Brugge historic area, on a quiet canal. The hotel & staff are delightful - what can beat waking up to ducks floating outside of your double opening windows, or while you're having a full northern European breakfast ? Room was larger than we expected, very updated bathroom, just a wonderful quiet, restful stay. We were surprised what a short walk it was to not only the center & market, but major museums & brewery tour. Would definitely stay again - and certainly return to Brugge!

"Picture Perfect Setting...Great Location"
Our favorite stay...great hosts...great food....clever bar....barges gliding slowly by.. right outside the windows.......ducks gathering outside the restaurant windows...very close to train station...you do not even have to cross a major street to get to the barge. Not airconditioned, but cool enough for sleeping....a wonderful get away from the normal stay. Rooms are small but areas for lounging both inside and outside more than made up for that....think cabin on cruise liner....great memories...would go back in a heartbeat.

"Something different!"
The Barge was a great way to enjoy this beautiful town. Being right on the water was magical and the service at reception and in the restaurant was impeccable. Very easy walk to the Beghinof and Minnewater Park- both within the city confines and both outstandingly beautiful- shouldn't be missed. It was a bit further to the centre but we didn't care because we were walking along old streets and crossing bridges over the canal. The room was a little small but we knew this before we booked and the restaurant food was good but a little too salty for me. My husband is a coeliac and the chef was brilliant in preparing a good, gluten free meal that wasn't boring.

"If you want somewhere a bit different...."
Check in was good. Cabin had lovely comfy beds and a view out onto the river. Bathroom and shower good with nice toiletries provided. Room information in three (or maybe four?) languages so no problem there. Breakfast excellent with a wide choice - taken in the restaurant which has a nice atmosphere. We didn't eat in the restaurant in the evening as the menu was in Flemish which we couldn't understand :-( As the staff all speak English, it might be a good idea to have an English translation of the menu/blackboard as well. Excellent location with parking, only a short walk from the centre of Bruges.

"Ok, but needs some investment"
proximity to the train station is fantastic, however this hotel needs a bit of further investment. What you get for the price certainly isn't bad, but some simple upgrades such as buying new towels (the must be at least a decade old) and wifi that works throughout could go a long way to attracting guests.

"Very good location. Short walk to city centre."
A great place to stay - totally different to the usual bland featureless hotels. Reminded me of a victorian era cruise ship cabin. Room / cabin was small but clean and tidy. Bed was comfortable. Quiet location so we got a great nights sleep. Only a few minutes walk to the city centre. Free parking right outside the front door.

Great theme, close-ish to the centre and well located for a nice stroll, loved the life jackets on the bed. On the other hand, parking on the side of a dead end street and a little tight overall with a bad smell of stale water at the front of the hotel only but it was a boat!!!

Really enjoyed our stay - it was unique! Staff were really friendly, room was spotless but it was quite small, but after all this is a cabin on a barge so it wasn't a problem. The breakfast was excellent. The hotel was well situated for a short walk from the Station (Eurostar) and the 15 minute walk to the centre of Bruges, it was great to stay somewhere that allowed us to escape the tourist crowds.

"Something Different"
When I read previous reviews about the staff we entered the hotel somewhat cautiously, but were given a warm and friendly welcome. The room was basic, but clean and faced the river. To use the toilet you had to climb up onto a raised platform, I'm only 5ft 10" but I hit my head on the wall facing the toilet, as did my wife, anyone taller would really struggle. The shower cubicle was small but clean and did leak a little, not really worth mentioning apart from a previous review that gave the impression the showers leaked like Niagra falls, they don't. After eating in the restaurant on the first night we didn't even consider going out on the second night of our stay, the food was superb, possibly the best steak I've ever had. Considering the location right by the coach park we thought that there would be a lot of noise, but on entering through the gate you enter a little sun-trap oasis of calm, where you can sit and enjoy a drink while reading a book in the sun, or a pre-evening meal drink. All in all a superb experience, looking forward to returning one day.

"Very helpful staff, and easy to find!"
We arrived and realised that we were in a room with a view of the car park, being that my boyfriend and I are both keen sailors and love the water we asked if we could be upgraded to a water view room and ended up in the Captains cabin- gorgeous!!! We received a map of Bruge, and a pass to a large number of museums in the city. We didn't eat there but the resturant looked nice, very positive experience!! Probably wouldn't go again, for no other reason than we never stay anywhere twice, but for a one night experience, it's one we will never forget.....BRILLIANT! If your not sure, just do it!

Location is great if you enjoy walking. Fab walk through park gets you to the lesser tramped areas of the city. Welcome on arrival was excellent but shame the warm, helpful charm disappears at breakfast. Wouldn't recommend this to a friend, but then I wouldn't recommend Bruges either. If you don't mind rude in attentive staff in close, cramped quarters, perhaps you will enjoy Hotel de Barge.

"Absolute waterfront"
We loved the barge hotel. We were placed in 3 adjacent rooms which seems to have been too difficult at other hotels. Rooms were compact but used the space very efficiently. The breakfast was included at no extra cost and it was self serve in the beautiful nautically themed restaurant. We had great views of ducks and boats outside the windows and plenty of options to suit all of our tastes for breakfast. It still has a cosy and friendly atmosphere but plenty of room to move. We strongly recommend the Barge Hotel especially if canals and barges are a novelty like they were for us.

"Warm welcome optional???"
The receptionist was extremely unwelcoming. We had driven from England and wished to use the toilet facilities before we checked in. The receptionist directed us outside to the public toilets under a nearby bridge! I replied with a confused look on my face and a smile 'but we are staying here' She then asked for our passports. She did not smile or apologise! I even tried making conversation with her as we all have our 'off' days, however this was clearly in vain. I have to wonder how she ever ended up in the hospitality industry. The place itself I thought was adequate (apart from the obvious above), the breakfast was fine. I just had to smile when I read the brochure as one of its selling points was that it guaranteed a 'warm welcome' - clearly the lady in question had not read the brochure!

"Avoid if you are a non-smoker!"
Guests allowed to smoke downstairs next to dining room. Smoke infiltrated our bedroom via the cupboard where there was water piping installed. When we checked out, the manager did not even bother to ask us how our stay was so I told him about the cigarette smoke in our room. He still did not bother to apologise for the inconvenience and discomfort that it caused us. This was not advertised (smoking permitted) as we would never have booked this hotel via Expedia if it was! This hotel could be so much better with different management and policies!

"Nice, but could be better"
Pleasant stay overall, however, our main problem was the very uncomfortable mattresses (very firm). We didn't complain as our stay was only a few days, and we were told that there were no other rooms available (when we asked if we could have a canal side room instead of a coach station view!) There is a nice canalside restaurant which is only open at weekends, but the breakfast in this room offers a good choice of food to start the day. Unfortunately the nice sitting room next to the restaurant smells of smoke as it doubles as a smoking room, which you can also smell when you come into the hallway. It's quite a walk from barge to town centre, with cobbled streets everywhere (lovely and quaint, but painful on your feet so take good shoes!) It was nice enough, but could have been better.
