Just spent four days in Bruges - staying at the Jan Brito. The hotel's strengths are a) its location - very near the town centre but just far enough away not to be noisy b) its staff - very pleasant and helpful , especially in suggesting good restaurants! c) the bathroom had lots of towels and plenty of hot water...

You should bear in mind that this is a very old building and great pains have been taken to ensure that original features (high ceilinged room with crazed mirrors, ancient armoires) remain. Therefore, choose your room accordingly as some may find such things a bit creepy. Breakfast is great and the staff are really excellent.

If you are "bling" sort of person and like everything shiny and new, then the Jan Brito might not appeal. However, for me, staff make a hotel and the staff were fantastic. The hotel's location is perfect for tramping the centre of Bruges: it is within easy walking distance of all the main sites/sights. We had a deluxe double room... More

first evening in Brugge occurred to be a nightmare because of this hotel. expected to stay at small old, nice, individually charactered hotel, judging by the photos. Turned out a really old (in worst sense), "warm eaten" place, room (suite) was big enough, antic decorated, with lots of curtains and old things, with nasty, unbearable smell, which made me shiver...

We stayed here for 2 nights over the first weekend in March. The hotel is close to everything in old Bruges and there is public parking under a park two blocks away. Our room (#4) was spacious and, except for the noisy bathroom fan/light very quiet. (We use a night light so we don't have to rely on these.) We... More

The hotel is in a Great location, just a 5 minute walk away from the Market square and towers but not disturbed by being too close to the tourist heavy areas. The hotel has lovely period decor and lovely, well maintained gardens as well as friendly and helpful staff. I Would highly recommend this hotel.

Stayed at the Jan Brito for a long weekend in Bruge. An ideal base. A 5 minute walk from the centre of town. Smart and comfortable with excellent friendly helpful staff. The breakfast buffet is very good. We had a standard room which was perfectly ample, if not huge. It was warm, clean and nicely presented. No complaints about this... More

Wow. My partner and I chose the highly recommended city of Brugge, Belgium for a post Valentines weekend getaway. Picking the right hotel is always a worry and struggle before taking off. Choosing Hotel Jan Brito was the best decision I could’ve made. I was truly blown away from the first moment I set foot in this authentic hotel filled... More

Very reasonably priced, small hotel with a great atmosphere, clean rooms and bathroom, breakfast and wifi included with very helpful staff. Lovely high vaulted ceilings in guest lounge with fire place and bar, also in the breakfast room that over looked a great little garden. Within walking distance (10 mins) to historic sights, canals, belfry, squares and some amazing restaurants.... More
