B&B In Bruges
Ranked #100 of 232 Bruges B&B and Inns
Reviewed January 15, 2013

We have stayed at Livia's B&B twice now, once in December 2010 and more recently in December 2012 when everything was just as perfect as the first time we visited. The first time we stayed in the blue room which was perfect for us, however this time we were in 'the room with a view' which was on the top floor and had a lot of space and amazing views of the Belfry!! The location is great, just a minute from the Markt/Burg and all the attractions. The breakfast Livia makes every morning is the BEST, she will even bring up to your room at the time you wish each morning so you can have breakfast in bed! The thing that makes Livia's and Bruges so special to us is the fact my boyfriend proposed to me on this recent trip- it was a big surprise to me but Livia was in on it and made sure there was a bottle of champagne and some lovely flowers in our room after the proposal! Bruges is the most amazing place and Livia is such a wonderful host, there is nowhere else we would stay when in Bruges.

We stayed with Livia for just one night as part of a mini cruise from Hull, what a beautiful home this lady has, the rooms/suite were spotlessly clean, we were able to check in very early as we arrived in Brugge at around 10am, this was a great help to drop of the bags and start to explore the city, the B+B is only a few mintues stroll from the main square close enough for convienience but far enough away to escape the hustle and bustle.

The suite we had was on the middle floor, the blue room i think, it was all restored to an orginal state as all houses in this area are listed buildings, with all the modern twists , double glazing, central heating, apart from a lovely large bedroom with spacious ensuite, we also had a sitting room on the same floor( only our rooms were on this floor ) this also had facilities for those who were staying longer, fridge and microwave with small hob all stored in a very neat and tidy cupboard, If I hadnt been show this little kitchenette cupboard I would never of guessed its use.

The breakfast was included and was delicious with cheese, pastries and bacon and egg belgian style, fresh coffee and tea. I'm trying to be as honest as possible and still can not find fault with this place,Livia went out of her way to make our stay as enjoyable as possible , even allowing us to keep the room late on the second day so we could make full use of our time in Brugge down to the last detail of booking our taxi for return to the ferry port that evening.
If you are looking for a little luxury with a warm welcome then I doubt there are any better suited than this, we will be returning to Brugge to see the christmas markets and Livias B+B suites will be my first choice for accomodation.

Room Tip: there only three suites in this B+B so make sure you book early in busy periods.

We've stayed at Livia's for 4 nights and had a great time. The location is excellent - just a few hundred meters from the Markt. We've stayed in the blue suite, which includes the bedroom and an additional living room with the fully equipped kitchenette - very convenient when travelling with babies.
Livia gave us great recommendations on attractions and places for dinner.
If you're looking for a warm and cozy B&B in the central location, then this place is for you.

We loved staying at Livia's for a weekend over the festive season in December 2010. The room was immaculately clean with a gorgeous little bathroom and bath. Livia's restaurant recommendations were spot on and we enjoyed a wonderfully chilled out weekend. Breakfast is made to order and in the lovely basement kitchen.
Thanks for having us - have recommended you to all we know who are visiting Bruges and look forward to seeing you again!

Room Tip: The blue room was very cute.

Livia is an amazing host. The accommodation is beautifully detailed and very comfortable. Our family of four (two kids ages 4 & 6) were warmly welcomed into Livia’s home. . We arrived just before Easter and what a fantastic time to be in Bruges – overload of chocolates… On our arrival, our children were offered chocolates – it was very exciting for all of us. The kids learnt the chocolates were on offer in the B&B all the time (even breakfast).
We had the top floor room which is perfect for a family – the room is well designed giving parents/children defined space. The kitchen is a great touch for snacks and meals. Breakfast was to die for!!!!! There is more than enough choices and it tastes fantastic. I have read in previous reviews a comparison of Livia to Martha Stewart - Livia is truly the Martha Stewart of Bruges. She is interesting and captivating, patient and kind. The room it self was lovely but Livia made our stay special. She made bookings at a local restaurant (which was amazing) and helped us with our train bookings – she even helped me with the ironing!!!!. She really did go well beyond what we were expecting of a B&B (this was our first experience of this accommodation type).

Location was fantastic too! walking distance to everything (so close to the city center)

My children’s favourite place of our 7 week holiday around Europe was Livia’s and I would have to agree with them. Livia welcomed our children as much as she did us.

Thank you Livia for your hospitality.

I visited Livia's with my wife and two girls, aged 8 and 6. We stayed for 4 nights and had a wonderful time. The location, building, accommodation, breakfast and host were fantastic. Very stylish! Livia is a wonderful host. We had a wonderful time there and I thoroughly recommend a visit. We stayed in the 'Room With a View'.

We stayed in the beautiful belle epoque suite for 2 nights and fell in love with this b&b and bruges it self.
livia is a fantastic host and was waiting with a smile and plenty of advice for our first trip to the city. she lent us a guide book and made recommendations of things to see and places to stay.
each morning we were greeted with an amazing breakfast in the superbly decorated kitchen with home made jams and juice from livias apples as well as a selection of pastries, cheeses and meats including bacon and of course scrambled eggs. we also got tips on more things to do every morning.
we slept soundly on the comfy beds and were made to feel like part of a family at every moment.
we swore to come back again soon, one of the best weekend breaks either of us have ever enjoyed.

Room Tip: we saw the view from the room with a view - it is spectacular. the belle epoque suite was like a tim...
