Bruges hotel prices
Hotels in Bruges tend to be most crowded in summer, and particularly during July and August. It’s definitely wise to book ahead if you are coming during high season, as the better places do fill up early. Bargains can be found at the fancier places from November through March, though prices at Bruges hostels and cheap hotels don’t change much through the year.

Bruges (or Brugge in Flemish/Dutch) is one of the more touristy cities in Europe, but it’s also charming and authentic as well. It’s also small, so most people can see most everything of interest in only 2 days or so.
Bruges isn’t as expensive as one might think, considering it’s so often jammed with visitors. Prices in general are typical of this part of Europe, and things become more affordable if you go at least a few blocks away from the main squares in the city center, especially with hotels and hostels.
The attractions may not be terribly cheap, but the very helpful Bruges Card is available for free at all the hostels and some budget hotels, and that shaves a couple euros off the prices of most things.
Food and drinks are also of typical prices for the region, and again, walking a couple blocks away from the main squares will save money if your budget is tight.

Being so near the coast helps keep temperatures in Bruges mild all year long, although that also brings gray skies and damp through much of the year. Summers are usually nice, though often cloudy for days in a row. Winters are mild, with snow and freezing temperatures being somewhat rare.
