During our stay in Bruges, we lived in the family-run Hotel Bryghia. The hotel is part of a building steeped in history, the Domus Osterlingorum, the House of the Orientals.
The merchants of the German Hanseatic League built the Domus Osterlingorum between 1478 and 1481. The coat of arms shield with the image of a two-headed eagle, awarded in 1486 by the Holy Roman Emperor Frederick III, can still be seen above the entrance today.
The House of the Orientals was renovated in 1965 and turned partly into a hotel. In 2018, the current owners bought the Hotel Bryghia.
On the ground floor is the reception, in which you can usually also meet the friendly hotel owner. He is always available for useful tips and information.
Feudal furniture in Renaissance style invites you to linger or read.
Right next door is the breakfast room, where you can start the day with an extensive breakfast at the buffet.
With the elevator, you reach the rooms. They are not very spacious but very clean and, however, offer everything that one needs.
Telephone and television are a matter of course, as well as free WiFi.

The garage for the car is approx. 300 m away. We left the car there during our stay because in Bruges you don’t need your car.
The center of Bruges is a 10-minute walk. At Jan van Eyck Square, only 170 m from the hotel, is a bus stop for the free city shuttle that brings you to the most important places in the city.
The Longer Canals runs past the back of the hotel. A canal where you find wonderful photo motives.
The charming Hotel Bryghia is the ideal starting point to explore Bruges.
