St Jacobs is a fabulous B&B in a beautiful old building, with lots of quirky modern touches inside. Located at a 20 minute walk from the train station and 5 minute walk from Markt Square, it is ideally positioned to explore Bruges on foot. We stayed in Room 1, which was located in the front of the building. It was... More

We stayed for 3 nights in this wonderful building, which has all the comforts expected from viewing the website and everything normally found in a hotel. It's very close to the centre and in a quiet area. Host Thierry is helpful, generous and friendly. Breakfast is great, always accompanied by different, yet apt music. There is an honesty bar if...

We were staying at St Jacobs over Valentine's Day and it was a thoroughly enjoyable weekend. Much is owed to this wonderful B&B. Thierry is an excellent host and knows how to make his guests feel welcomed. The interior design of St Jacobs is very tasteful with a lot of attention to details.

Very nice place, very chic! Thierry (the owner) is very nice, and helpful with his tips on bruges, he offered us a bottle of wine! The room 2 is large, very clean, nice interior with a fireplace, the bathroom is nice very clean too. You have a large choice on the breakfast! I highly recommend this B&B :) cheers!

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. Elegant, contemporary accommodation situated 10 minutes from the City centre. If you like your breakfast in a traditional breakfast room then this might not be for you. Breakfast is allocated by room on trays on the first floor landing. There is a good buffet that supplements the croissants and coffee machines with pods in the... More

From the first second you arrive into this oasis of tranquillity you will feel totally at home, this beautifully restored old building, 2 minutes walk to the famous market square in the centre of Bruges is obviously the pride and joy of it's owner and this is evident in the perfect service and attention to detail. Rooms are spacious and... More

It's a nice old building and we had a big room which was nicely decorated but there was NO SOUNDPROOFING even tough it stated it on the details section when we booked. This meant we could hear music coming from either below us or next door, we could hear voices through the cracks in the flooring too and anytime anyone... More

Firstly, there is an ambiguity as to whether you are booking the Zakske B&B or the Oude Zak B&B. If you want the more traditional B&B with ornate staircase/stain glass etc., you will want to book the OudeZak B&B (Smaller 4 room B&B). If you want a more contemporary styled room and entrance, it would seem the Zakske B&B (Larger,... More

This is one of the best B&Bs I have ever stayed. The decor is extremely stylish, the rooms are huge and the owner (Thierry) is a true gentleman. We stayed here for 2 nights for my wife's 30th birthday and we were extremely impressed. We used the B&B as a base to explore Bruges and it was perfect - 5-10... More
