Reviewed March 17, 2014

Beautiful ,warm and welcoming B&B. Lynn and Peter are perfect hosts. Our room was exactly as described. Great shower and comfortable bed. Breakfast was fresh, home made and delicious. The deck near the canal is a great space to relax and we felt very spoilt being able to share this small piece of Bruges. Convenient to everything. Lynn's decor is stunning and sweet with attention to every small detail. Love, love loved it!

All the charm of a B&B, all the class and amenities of a hotel. Great location (close to everything, but quiet), great breakfast, great room (stayed in St. Jacob room). Truly charming owner that gives you all the inside deals in Brugges, and even rents out city bicycles for cheap, in case you want to experience the city on two wheels. Perhaps the best bed and breakfast I've ever been to! (Feels more like a wonderful private, boutique hotel than a B&B---no annoying owners and communal breakfast eating!)

My fiancé and I spent 2 nights at Huis Konig in July 2013. I have waited this long to write a review simply because I can't find the words to express how perfect our experience was. As other guests have mentioned, Lynn and Peter are the most wonderful hosts. We arrived late in the evening and found Lynn waiting for us, the "friends from Washington DC." She helped us find a place for dinner and even called ahead for us. We loved the hand-picked recommendations and relied on Lynn and Peter's tips more than anything else during our brief stay in Bruges. Thought we spent most of our time exploring, during the time we spent back at the B&B, we were made to feel comfortable and right at home. Lynn's cooking is out of this world. We enjoyed breakfast and freshly squeezed orange juice outside by the canal. Everything about our accommodations was 5 star quality. Bruges is a very special place, and Huis Konig is THE spot to stay!

My husband and I stayed 5 nights at Huis Koning in March 2014. It was our first time in Bruges and we could not have been more pleased with our selection for our accommodation. The B&B is situated on a delightful quiet street, allowing one to easily stroll to the bustling center of the city. The house backs onto a charming, peaceful canal, home to a platoon of ducks, who dutifully patrolled the water every morning ! Our room, which looked onto the canal, was absolutely perfect for us. It was quiet, clean and the tasty treats baked by our generous host( Lynn) that awaited us on our return every evening were greatly appreciated! The breakfast served at Huis Koning was one of the best we have ever had, while traveling in Europe. Everything was fresh: home made breads, jams, waffles, freshly squeezed orange juice, tasty fruit salad and excellent cheeses and meats, not to mention, the best poached eggs ever! Our hosts, Peter and Lynn were delightful, always ready to help accommodate with making reservations for dinner, confirming a tour and arranging for a taxi, when necessary. They know so much about the city and its history, about the "must see " sights, and about the good restaurants on the less traveled streets. They were always ready to chat, but were never intrusive. If you are looking for a quiet, romantic location, while exploring beautiful Bruges, we strongly recommend that you consider Huis Koning as your only choice!

We stayed for 2 nights at Huis Koning and can only confirm previous glowing reviews.
Huis Koning is the perfect marriage of a luxury hotel with all the charm of a traditional B&B. It's well situated in a quiet street but within walking distance of the city center.
We stayed in the St Jacob room : it's a good size and has been beautifully appointed, with excellent beds and incredibly soft sheets. The bathroom is rather small, but again beautifull and luxuriuous. Everything is spotless and the whole room looks as it was built the day before.

The best asset however of Huis Koning is its hostess : Lynn perfectly manages to find the difficult balance between being there for her guests and showing sincere interest without being too present. She genuinely wants her guests to have an excellent time.
Breakfast was probably the best we've ever had. Almost everything is homemade and you can taste it.

We've stayed in a lot of hotels and B&B's, some good, some less so, but Huis Koning really stands out for all the right reasons.

We stayed in their largest room and we could not have been happier. Extremely comfortable Bed, Great Bathroom equipped with all your needs. Bath salts, foam, makeup remover pads etc. everything has been thought of for your comfort . Now as for Lynn and Peter they are not only perfect hosts but run a spectacular B&B! Breakfasts are made to order ....everything you can want from eggs, breads cheeses, ham pastries etc. fresh juice...and I mean fresh. Great coffee as well. I cannot imagine staying anywhere else in Bruge. Cannot wait to return to this comfortable, lovely inn and it's superlative kind owners.
