Hotel Damier

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

I really enjoyed my short stay at the hotel. Amazing staircase.Cosy lobby. Great location in the city centre. Comfty beds, big and spacious bathroom. Fast check-out available. Poor breakfast :( Overall, I do recommend.

This is a very atmospheric hotel, one of the oldest in Belgium and located in the heart of Kortrijk which is an interesting town to visit for shopping, walking, and history. The hotel facade is narrow so most rooms are to the rear and do not have views over the market square. But the rooms are nicely furnished and decorated in pink and grey, well maintained and warm. No tea making facilities, but that is normal for Belgium. The bathroom had a large bath with shower over, the marble showing signs of age, but I like marble so didn't mind. There were quality toiletries by Clarins provided. There is a beautiful cafe/bar to the front of the reception area and you can enjoy drinks, light meals, etc outside if you prefer, and watch the world go by. This is open to the public but there is a cosy lounge inside with a fire burning for residents. Breakfast was in an attractive room with a very good buffet selection. There is a first class restaurant in the hotel, and dozens of others to suit all tastes and budgets in Kortrijk. Parking is at the rear of the hotel and a bit tricky to find, but it is very secure with electronic gates. The staff are always outstanding (I have visited this hotel 4 times), Tina the manager could not have been more friendly and helpful. She is a credit to the hotel. This is not the cheapest hotel you will find, but in my opinion its unique characteristics and excellent service make it one worth visiting again and again.

Nice renovation certainly but stay..too old fashioned..a step to low to be perfect. The room was nice but the furnitures seems passed. The bathroom ? Common. We were on the 3d floor...but with the odour of smoke ( smokers just in the porch downstairs). Basic breakfast. In summary: maybe but..don t exspect too much. This hotel have a life as us but get older as us

Our room (36) at the front of the hotel was very noises from the street with late night drinkers shouting until 2am. The car park is a rough stone area with a secure gate but at 15 Euro per night it should be. GREAT CAUTION IF STAYING IN KORTRIJK IF YOU PARK ON THE ROAD TO THE LEFT OF THE HOTEL (looking at the front of the hotel) ON A SUNDAY NIGHT YOUR CAR WILL BE TOWED AWAY BY THE POLICE AS THEY HAVE A STREET MARKET AND TO GET YOUR CAR BACK COSTS 260 Euro. The hotel has a small sign on their desk that without prompting you to read you will easily miss. The street sigh that says there is a Monday market is in Belgium writing so if you don't speak or read their language you will be cought out and ripped off. We have been to this town four times and each time stayed at this hotel but this is the last time. Hotel room is ok but dated and the two small lifts kept breaking down. Would l stay here again....NO

The Grote Markt dominates Kortrijk with the Hotel Damier discretely located overlooking. It is clearly the place to imbibe a coffee, a beer or anything to be acknowledged by passers by as you sit outside under the tree lined pavement. I stay in many hotels but this hotel is a true find. Old style oak panelled walls, single lifts, hidden dining rooms with high chandeliers. Rarely have I noticed equally written about the comfort, the bed linen so soft ensuring a relaxing sleep. The hotel staff were so helpful this day has been superb A perfect spot, a perfect hotel. You will enjoy.

I stayed three nights at this hotel in a "superior" room. The bed was comfortable. The breakfast was very good and I made use of their private parking nearby. A/C and Wi-Fi worked well. My only complaint was that my room had no shelves or drawers where I could place my clothes and other personal items. Instead, I had to live out of a suitcase. I have had more room amenities in a two-star hotel and this was a 4 star!

I made a booking for a standard room at short notice.I arived,as specified in my booking,later in the day than I usually do,having been flying a total of over six hours. I was given a free" upgrade" to a huge suite on the sixth floor This should have raised my suspicions.Had I walked beyond the room,around a corner,I would have seen a sheet of plywood across the corridor. Having gone to bed tired,and not so early ( because of noise from drinkers in the courtyard) as usual,I was woken at 0725 by heavy building work adjacent to my room. The following morning,staff said that the hotel was " fully booked",as if this were an excuse for not having warned me.Had they done so, I would then have had the opportunity to walk short distance to one of the other hotels I have previously used in Kortrijk. I find this unacceptable.It is offering a service. with no intention of delivering it.

One of the best hotels I had ever been, and I've been a lot...:) Stylish, amazing architecture, perfect location, cozy food and super breakfast. In the room you feel like the time has stopped and you turn beck at least century ago:)

I can't fault this hotel on anything. I arrived late and they still served me food and then they honoured my request something not exactly on the menu - salmon and cheese toasty! Breakfast service was straightforward and as as was check out! Place was very clean and the decor is charming. I'd definitely stay here again.

Stayed here for 2 nights during a metal festival. It is located right in the centre of the city and what a city it is! Easy to walk around, calm, clean and with an overall laid back feel. Hotel is very close to the Unesco site Saint Elisabeth Beguinage. You can sit outside at the front, drink and eat and just watch the world go by. There was a festival in the city the same weekend so no traffic. This just added to the ambiance. Staff were very helpful and did what they could to help me when I needed it. Breakfast was buffet and cooked and was delicious. Service was great. The room which I had did look a bit tired and in need of an upgrade, especially the bathroom. I am not an overly fussy person and everything was very clean so not much of a complaint. The bed was extremely comfortable which is way more important to me than up to date fixtures and fittings. As I hope to visit every year there is one major flaw in this hotel which would make me question if I would book this hotel again and that is the lack of hot beverage making facilities in the room. I stay in a lot of hotels and very rarely is there one with no kettle. This is enough to break the camels back for me as being of English/Irish extraction we love our tea at all times. Just to get back to the room and 'put the kettle on' is such an important aspect it really does put a dampener on an otherwise extremely pleasant stay. In the hotels defense I did go down to reception on a number of occasions and they obliged with hot water, milk etc. I always carry my own tea bags! Hoping when I come next year these facilities will be in place.
