My husband, his cousin and I drove into Bruges from Amsterdam. With a couple of snack stops and lots of photos it took us about 3 hours to get to The House of Elements. We had to meet a nice man and pay for our stay upfront and get our keys, passcode for the entrance, and parking advise. From there... More

We rented 2 apartments for 6 of us. Earth and Wood apartments. If it had just been the Earth apartment all would have been fine and I would have rated it very good. However our second apartment let the whole thing down. Wood apartment was not well cared for. The light switch by the entrance was loose and seemed dangerous.... More

We stayed in the Water 3 bed place on the top floor. Lift goes up 2 floors, then one flight of stairs. The actual apartment was lovely, lots of space, nice big dining table / corner sofa / TV (which came with a copy of In Bruges on DVD). Clean and well stocked in general. As per everyone else though,... More

In common with some other reviewers we really liked the space and the standard of accommodation, but the bar across the street (or is it the pissoir?) seems to attract some fairly loud drunks in the early hours. We were woken about 5.30 one morning and 6.30 the other by shouting which only ended when the police arrived. Maybe it... More

We stayed here in the "Earth" apartment for 4 nights and would love to be able to give an excellent rating because the location, standard of the apartment, parking and the whole organisation of the letting was superb BUT we did experience noise from the bar -all night! In fact on one occasion the police arrived in the square at... More

Found it on bookings.com as we were traveling with another couple and felt a flat would be better than 2rooms in a hotel. It was great. Large and clean rooms in a central location. Parking was around the corner and safe. As others mentioned the bar was open until 5 am and our friends didn't sleep well on Saturday night... More

I was searching for somewhere affordable within 10 minutes of the city centre and came across the House of Elements. I initially made contact with the owners via email and unlike a few other property owners, they actually emailed me back...and quickly! They were very pleasant to deal with and helped me book the Water apartment. When we arrived (2hrs... More

Stayed in the 'Water' apartment, which was spacious and very well presented. Also in a very central location, great for a group of friends visiting beautiful Brugge. We weren't too bothered by the noise from the adjacent night club although this could be a problem in the summer months when you need to have windows open, wouldn't stop me staying... More
