5-10 minute walk and you are in the center of everything! Absoluut was wonderful all around - fantastic location, excellent hosts with Frieda and Benno, lovely breakfast! We were in the garden room. All previous reviews that note the steep steps are not kidding - truly, if you have mobility issues, bad knees/ankles or very large feet you should not... More

We have stayed here approximately 4 times over a 2 year period and we would never stay anywhere else. It is absolutely beautiful, lovely charm and character. We have always been made to feel very welcome, the rooms are immaculate and the parking is a great perk too. The breakfasts are absolutely fantastic and include everything you could want- fresh...

Benno & Frienda seemed like friends before we arrived. They answered all of our emails promptly with loads of helpful information. The location, ambience and comfort were perfect. You couldn't find a more delicious breakfast anywhere. Close to wonderful restaurants and all the sights of Brugge. Highly recommend.

My wife and I stayed for two nights in early May. We had the Classic room...large, comfortable, traditional and very clean. As mentioned elsewhere, Absoluut Verhulst is ideally situated...it's only a short walk to the town centre yet in a very quiet location. Frieda and Benno are ideal hosts. They're helpful, friendly and enthusiastic. Their hand drawn map showing restaurants... More

My friend and I shared the twin "garden" room and were delighted with the room and with the service provided by Frieda and Benno. The house is situated on a very quiet street but is just a very short walk from the centre of Brugge so it is perfectly positioned. We walked from the train station and took about 30... More

Our family of 5 stayed in the spacious loft suite on 2 floors with living area. Frieda and Benno are extremely hospitable, friendly and helpful. Breakfast was fabulous, huge and delicious (Benno's omelettes were a highlight). Today (Easter Sunday) there was even an Easter egg for our 7 year old! Highly recommended! We'll be back!

My husband and I spent three nights here at the end of February. It was great ..comfy and cozy. Freida and Benno were great although Benno was sick so we didn't see much of him. Breakfast was awesome. Just a short walk to the main square. We would definitely stay again. Thank you Frieda and Benno! Curt and Norie

My wife and I spent two cozy nights here at the end of 2014. Our room was very spacious, and came with a suited bathroom (down a short flight of stairs). Frieda and Benno were perfect hosts, and run an outstanding B&B. The continental breakfast is seriously the best I've ever had; you'd expect to pay $20 for a similar... More

The b&b is located in a quiet residential area of Bruges within 5 minutes walking distance from the central square. The room was very tidy and clean, the breakfast (very good!) was served in the living room warmedby a fireplace and the atmosphere was so relaxing! The price was correct. This was absolutely the best place to stay!
