We chose Bruges for a long weekend destination and chose the Oud Huis de Peellaert after carefully sorting through all of the reviews, etc. This hotel is quite well situated, but as Bruges is small, most hotels there offer easy access to all of the sights. There is no lobby to speak of, just a reception desk, and the young women who were on duty during our stay were always well-informed, polite and could speak several languages. Our room was a bit smaller than I had expected, as most of the photos show rooms with a small sofa. Ours had 2 chairs, facing a wardrobe. The strangest thing about this hotel was the water in the bathrooms. The hot water tap gives hot water and the cold water tap gives.....hot water! We left it running for quite some time, and eventually after perhaps 5 minutes, it cooled off. Unless you like brushing your teeth with hot water, this is a problem! We mentioned this to the receptionist, who seemed surprised, but when we used the bathroom near the reception area, the situation was identical. Considering that the hotel has a notice in the bathrooms asking guests to help the environment by saving water by not changing the towels daily, it is ironic that they don't fix the plumbing!
The bed was comfortable, TV offered a few English channels and if you get a room away from the front of the hotel, you'll get a good night's sleep. As has been mentioned in other reviews, there is a youth hostel across the street from the Peellaert and on our first night, there was a crowd of rowdy, drunken British tourists.
