2. The Black Swan Hotel
This family-friendly hotel in Bruges also has a very central location. In fact, The Black Swan hotel is only 350 meters from Bruges’ Grand Place. This is the city’s central square. The hotel is located in a 17th-century building. It is possible to rent bicycles at the hotel and explore Bruges that way.
The hotel has family rooms suitable for families of up to five people, with the kids all sleeping on a separate bed and the parents in a double bed. Also in these family rooms, the bathroom is in the room and some bathrooms include a bathtub. Personally, we always find that a huge plus because our daughter loves it immensely, but of course that is a personal choice.
In the morning, the hotel serves a buffet breakfast, which you can enjoy in the hotel’s garden in the summer months or in the breakfast conservatory in the winter months. The hotel has a private parking lot. The hotel also has a jacuzzi, which you can use with the family.

Positives The Black Swan Hotel: the friendly staff is often named as a positive point of this hotel. For example, one parent describes that she stayed at the hotel with a 22-year-old daughter and had booked a triple room with the family and was given a double room for the daughter to stay in because it was free anyway. That kind of thing, of course, makes you feel top-notch about a hotel right away. In addition, the location, price-quality ratio and spacious rooms are also often mentioned as positive points.
Negative points The Black Swan Hotel: a number of families report that the interior of the family rooms is somewhat dated and that the rooms can be hot in the summer months.

This family hotel in Bruges is a little more central than the two hotels we have already mentioned above. Hotel Acacia is just 100 meters from Bruges’ Grand Place and Belfry, and you can park your car privately at the hotel. This hotel also offers several family rooms for families of four.
These family rooms are between 25m2 and 36m2 and have a double bed for the parents and for the kids either a separate bed or a sofa bed. This depends on what kind of family room you book.

In addition, most families really like the family room with fine beds, the extensive breakfast and the friendly staff. The fact that the hotel is quiet despite its central location was also mentioned several times as a positive point.

4. Martin’s Bruges
Martin’s Brugge hotel is the fourth hotel in this list of family hotels in Bruges and this hotel is also very centrally located. In fact, the hotel is only 50 meters away from the Grand Place and the hotel is located behind the Belfry. Of course, it is not surprising that all the hotels in our list are centrally located, because that is also one of the criteria we select hotels by. We always like it when we book a hotel with our daughter, that we can also walk straight into the city from the hotel and that we don’t have to travel quite a bit by our own car or public transportation first.
This family-friendly hotel in Bruges also has several beautiful and luxurious family rooms, with some rooms where the kids sleep in double beds and others in bunk beds. Most of these family rooms also include a bathroom with a bathtub, and the family rooms are about 23m2 in size.
The hotel has a cocktail bar and also a terrace where you can have a drink in the summer months with the family. It is also possible to cozy up inside by the fireplace in the winter months. Underneath the hotel is a parking garage.
Martin’s Bruges review
Martin’s Brugge hotel receives an 8.1 as an overall rating from a whopping 6760 reviews. Among families with kids, this score was even higher and the overall score was a 9.6. More than 1825 families with kids have rated this hotel.
Positives Martin’s Brugge: obviously, the hotel’s location is mentioned as a positive point. In addition, the clean and modern family rooms are a positive point of this hotel, as are the breakfast and the hotel’s parking garage.
Negative points Martin’s Brugge: a number of families indicated that they missed a kettle and coffee maker in the room. Also, some families who slept on the street side had noise from traffic. Therefore, when booking, ask for a room that is at the back of the hotel to avoid this.

This four-star restaurant in Bruges is also close to the train station and city center. This hotel is also great to book if you are traveling to Bruges by train (by train, you can get to Bruges in just under three hours from Amsterdam, so that can definitely be an attractive option).
