We stayed for 6 nights at the Jan Brito Hotel, and would definitely stay there again. The building is about 500 years old and only recently converted to a hotel. Our room was small and we were unable to upgrade because it was Easter weekend and they were full, but we coped with that minor inconvenience. The buffet breakfast that was included in the room rate was first class. A great selection of foods suitable for different nationallities. The area was quiet which was great after staying in a noisy area of Amsterdam. We were only a few blocks from the busy historic area of Bruges and all the bars and restaurants. The staff were very pleasant and all spoke English well. There is a peaceful courtyard and garden at the rear of the building.
Pros - within easy walking distance to all the tourist attractions
- good breakfasts
- lovely historic building
Cons - the small bedroom, but that was really our own fault as I am sure we could have got a larger room when we originally booked if we had specified that.
