With a rich religious heritage, historic sites around every corner and a charming lace work of meandering canals, it’s impossible to begrudge Bruges its UNESCO World Heritage City status. Ascend the Market Square’s 83-metre tower to gaze over the city’s unique vista, where cobbled streets wind past medieval buildings, horse-drawn carriages set a distinctive fairy-tale vibe and the flood-lit evening streets of the city create an ambience all their own.
Floris Hotel Karos is located in the midst of it all, just a short walk from Grote Markt. The elegant and modern guest rooms are spacious, providing a lush respite from the city’s buzz, and you’ll find an indoor pool and a fitness area making up the leisure facilities. You can kick off each day grazing over the continental buffet breakfast, before heading into the city to discover Bruges brilliance.

How to Get There
Stayed here for three nights having booked the hotel as part of a Eurostar package. An extremely friendly and efficient front desk who provided very useful information on such things as restaurants and tourist office. The room was more spacious than I expected and it was very clean and had excellent amount of storage space. Bathroom was good with toiletries, bath and shower. No temperature controls but did have a ceiling fan to keep the room cool. Would have benefited if had a refrigerator and a security box although you could leave valuables at reception.
I stayed in this hotel for only one night. Check in was easy, I drove to Bruges and was able to park near hotel, underground parking (3 min walk) for $8 for 24hrs a bargain.
Friendly staff and easy check in. Room was nice, spacious.
A tiny gym and a nice cool swimming pool, Breakfast was Fine. Location is 5 min walk from the square so you have all shops, restaurants, canal walk, boat ride nearby,
Overall a very good stay
The good bits. The staff were very welcoming , friendly, efficient. The downstairs entrance area had an upmarket, very pleasant ambiance , it was fairly spacious. It looked family friendly for families with young children . There was a small gym and a small decent pool. The breakfast had a good selection of food. The hotel was clean and the rooms we had were spacious. The bathrooms were a good size, well provisioned and clean.
On the negative side, as soon as we left the main entrance areas to the hotel, the whole look of the building was tired. Carpets needed a good clean , or renewal. Curtains in our rooms were poorly fitting and didn’t keep out light. One velux window would not open . We had two rooms; one a large attic room that was very hot. There was a ceiling fan that my husband got going by giving it a good push to start it. We also had a stand alone floor fan. At least better than sweltering away the night , but both were very noisy. There was no complimentary drinks in our 2 rooms and no kettles , fridges , or safes. The second room had no means of cooling it, the teenagers didn’t want the window left open as they were directly adjacent to a little sun deck type area that had people chatting in it till quite late at night. Plus leaving a window open provided easy access to the room , so not secure. Beds were not particularly comfortable and both rooms looked a bit worn out. In our large attic room, two electric sockets were very loose in fragile plaster work. The in-house room phone was unusable with a mess of exposed wiring. I unplugged it and hoped for the best. For 4 of us it appeared that 2 of our breakfasts were included and 2 were not. Some internet sites suggest breakfast is included , but check if you want certainty.
