Set close to Bruges' Grote Markt (market square), Martin's Brugge hotel is a good base for exploring the city's "narrow canals, handsome squares, and charming old gabled houses" (Fodor's).
The hotel is in the centre of the medieval city, a 5-minute walk from sights such as the Stadhuis (city hall), Basilica of the Holy Blood and the Groeningemuseum, the city's most prominent art gallery. The Belfort -- the 13th-century belfry, which featured in the film "In Bruges" -- is just next door, as is the Bourgogne des Flandres brewery (open for tours from 10am-6pm, Wednesday-Sunday). The scenic Rozenhoedkaai, where the Groenerei and Dijver canals meet, is around the corner.
To learn more about chips and chocolate (Belgium's most famous produce), visit the Frietmuseum and the Choco-Story museum -- both within walking distance of the hotel.
The hotel has an outdoor terrace and a bar. There are four types of guest room: Charming, Charming Plus, Charming Triple and Great. All have free Wi-Fi, and views of either the garden or the canal.
