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. 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
