A nice hotel ideally located, just a few minutes walk from the centre. Car Parking can be arranged at a nearby underground car park. Had a luxury room which was comfortable. Staff very friendly and pleasant bar. Breakfast was good. Surprised to find an English breakfast available as well as continental. Would use again. Market stalls were disappointing, but the... More

Well located old-Flemish hotel, just 5 minutes from Grote Markt and 2 minutes from the fish market. We enjoy a duplex room (we did not know it was a duplex, pay attention if you have mobility problems in that the stairway is small) with tube and garden view (a lovely fountain decorated the center of the garden). Excellent breakfast (buffet)... More

A delightful hotel, with charming decor in a super location. A lovely warm bar area with fireplace, a very relaxing atmosphere for a drink after walking around the city.. Rooms adequate but small. Certainly ok if you are only using the room to sleep rather than spending much time in it. In Bruges however you should be in the in... More

This was a trip to celebrate my husband's birthday and also to enjoy the Christmassy atmosphere. We came back to the Jan Brito as we knew we wouldn't be disappointed. The location is perfect, the breakfast delicious and plentiful, the room was quiet, spotless and large. The staff is very helpful and efficient. I would recommend this hotel without hesitation...

The Jan Brito, or the Jam Burrito after a glass of Kwak, is husband and wife run hotel in a quiet street between the ring road and the inner ring canal of Bruges. If you are driving, the it ny and cobbled streets with equally tiny one-way-only signs means you MUST print out a paper map for the navigator with... More

We stayed here for two nights at the end of November, just as the Christmas season was getting started. Bruges was packed, and this hotel seemed to be, too. The first morning, we had to wait quite awhile for a table to open up so that we could have breakfast. Our family of four shared the family room located in... More

The Jan Brito is very well situated, being only a short and pleasant walk from all the major attractions of Bruges. However, being a converted former merchant’s house the internal walls are mainly partition, so that you can hear quite a lot of what is going on in the next bedroom. I would advise against choosing the cheapest (smallest) bedrooms... More

We stayed here for 3 nights in November. The hotel location is great, off a nice quiet street but within walking distance of all the main areas/streets etc. The Hotel had a nice, old feel to it however the room (no.14) was a little disappointing. The room was the first one on the floor so was next to the lift,... More

We stayed for two nights, the location was very close to all the places we wanted to see while we were there, about eight minutes from the market square. The room, number 6, was very comfortable and clean, the only complaint is that it was a bit dark even with the lights on (the only reason to give four stars).... More

We stayed at the Jan Brito in October for five nights. The location was perfect. We walked everywhere! The building was beautiful, as was the garden. We were within walking distance of everything. The breakfast buffet was very good, with hot scrambled eggs, meats, plentiful pastries and bread choices, fruit, yogurt , etc. We stayed in Room 10, a "Knight's... More
