Freida and Benno own a lovely, peaceful and well-placed B&B in the heart of Bruges. The location may it easy to utilize public transportation from the train to Absoluut Verhulst. Our group - there was four adults - walked all over the city from the B&B at all hours of the day/night.
As for the establishment...the photos don't do it justice. It has a warmth and openness that I've never felt in hotels. Freida and Benno offer a tremendously delicious beakfast! Benno rides his bike every morning for fresh bread to accompany the Belgiun cheeses and meats, the yummy spreads (Nutella and Speculoos) and the yogurt with fruit. They even offered eggs cooked to order!
Our group of four shared the upstairs apartment. It has two floors that allowed for just enough privacy. The shared bathroom wasn't a big deal for us. We had a common area with couches, television, electric kettle, fridge and tea. The fridge allowed us to buy great Belgiun beers at the corner store to enjoy in the evening before dinner. When we asked about American football (we were in Bruges for the Super Bowl) Benno made a point of researching the channels and leaving us a note with the time and station. So kind!
I could go on for paragraphs, but what you should really know is that Absoluut Verhulst won't disappoint. It's not stuffy or old. It's charming, comfortable and convenient. And the breakfast will rock your world!
