If you have read the reviews about this B&B, you already know that the location is ideal. It’s within a short walk to the Square, but far enough from the noise and bustle. You also know that the rooms are quite large, tastefully decorated, clean, and affordable. We stayed in The Classic room and we couldn’t get over how sizable... More

We were in western Europe and had no plans to go to Bruges but decided to carve out some time to return to this great city. Part of our decision was based on our prior fabulous experiences with Benno and Frieda who run this little B&B in Bruges. They are warm hosts and very helpful in helping travelers make the... More

This is a great B&B. The location is excellent. It's in the old city but not in the noisy center. It's a 5" walk to all the museums. The room we had was large, modern, clean & quiet. The breakfast was excellent. We even had eggs made to order as well as the usual cereal, fruit, pastries, cheese & cold... More

Frieda and Benno were so accommodating to our family of four, after a long day of traveling. Excellent Location, great recommendations for dinner, and the best breakfast in Europe! The accommodations are comfortable, and the garden is delightful with a respite from a busy touring day. Freida helped us find the perfect contact for an authentic Belgian christening gown. We...

A very friendly and helpful welcome from Frieda and Benno. The house is ideally situated on a quiet street, but only 10 minutes walk from the centre of Bruges. Great breakfast. Large and comfy room. What more do you want from a B&B? It seemed a little expensive compared to what we usually pay for a B&B, but it was... More

Everything about our two night stay was perfect - the room (garden room), the breakfast (get the scrambled eggs!), the location, the hospitality, and the setting. A beautiful place to stay in a beautiful city. Thank you!

We recently had the pleasure of staying with Benno and Frieda in the loft of their colorful and inviting home. The location was great. The breakfast was AMAZING. The conversation was lively. And the attention they offered was sincere and continuous, from availability inquiry to check-out. They are just as lovely as the city of Bruges itself. What a bonus... More

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.

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...
