Maison de la Rose

Reviewed February 8, 2013

We came to stay in Bruges in December 2012 for a christmas break for 2 days. The location of the hotel couldn't have been better, everything you could want to see in Bruges is a very short walk, the town centre is literally 2 minutes away! Hans and An were very accomodating and friendly, and gave us tips on the best sights to see whilst in Bruges as well as a very useful map and brochure. The room was comfortable and spacious, and the en-suite (which is no longer separated by the curtain as in some of the pictures, a door has been put in) was also roomy and had everything we needed. Overall, a lovely place to stay in the heart of Bruges and we would recommend Maison de la Rose to all our friends!

Second time staying at Maison de la Rose, and will be back for sure. The apartment is lovely, airy and spacious. Ideal for our group of friends spending a Christmassy weekend in Bruges. Good to be able to have the independence to come and go as we pleased and relax in a home-from-home environment rather than have the restrictions of a hotel room. Well equipped kitchen, lovely luxurious bathroom and beautiful clean comfortable beds! Location is just perfect as within a five minute walk you are in the central square. Hans the owner is extremely helpful and accommodating and is always on hand with advice about where to go and places to eat etc. . We cant wait to go back again. Bruges itself is beautiful, especially this time of year. Recommend Cafe Rose Red on Cordoeanierstraat if you want expert advice on Belgian beers! Also, try the Flemish Stew! It's a must! My favourite area to visit is the Beguinage and Minnewater. All in all a great place and its nice to know we can return to Maison de la Rose as our base for our future trips! Thank you Hans!

Room Tip: Loft apartment is ideal and private, self contained.

I stayed here with my Mum and sister in November 2012 for two nights and loved the whole experience. Our room was large and cosy and had all necessities including a TV, fridge and more. The room was nice and toasty and warm which was ideal as it was so cold outside and the beds were more than big enough! The whole feel of the place was friendly and had a relaxed atmosphere - I loved the floor to ceiling bookshelf that ran alongside the staircase. The owner was very friendly too and offered us loads of great recommendations for places to visit - we particularly loved how he recommended local affordable places as opposed to typical tourist traps. We had breakfast on one morning too and had a lovely selection of croissants, cheese, ham, tea, coffee and orange juice and the owner also made us some boiled eggs - we were spoilt for choice! There was also free Wi-Fi too :)
The hotel/B&B was in a very central location too which was only a short five minute walk away to the centre, with lots of nice views on the walk too. A small supermarket was only a few doors down too which was great to buy some milk or snacks to bring back to the room.
Overall it was a very quiet, affordable and pleasant stay and I would without a doubt recommend others to stay here.

We very much enjoyed our stay in the blue room for 3 nights. A big positive for us was the helpful and friendly nature of Hans, the owner, and Marianne, who checked us in. We also liked the decor of the room, the chocolates on our pillows and the central location.

A minor criticism is that there is no air con which means opening a window if it is hot and there is a bit of road noise.

Although it did not seem like the cleaner had been in for the duration of our stay, the room and en suite were very clean and we were supplied with plenty of clean towels.

We did not order breakfast during our stay and I think it says a lot that Hans recommended many cafes/patisseries as alternatives to his own breakfast. Hans also allowed us to keep our key so we could freely get our bags on the day we left and trusted us to leave him the correct cash. What a great guy.

We generally enjoyed our stay at Maison de la Rose. We were well received by Hans as he gave us a thorough explanation of the city and recommendations of where to eat. We had the yellow room and it was very clean, comfortable, quiet, and private. I would stay here again.

It is called a Bed & Breakfast but somehow when we went there was no breakfast being served. We had 3 adults and 2 children in our party and stayed in the loft room. Upon entering we were greeted by the owner Hans who was very friendly. He explained all the services and gave us recommendations on where to eat and what to do. We went to our room which was at the top. The room was very spacious and had lots of beds. There was only one bathroom and only one mirror in the bathroom. There were lots of appliances in the kitchen and also supplies to use which was very nice. Only problem I had was there was a mousetrap left on one of the rafters in open view. Also it could use a couple of new fry pans the one there was sort of old . Other than that we had a nice stay and would stay here again. It is within walking distance to town and it is nice to have a kitchen and cook your own breakfast..

Thank you very much for this kind review and for your stay. Normally we do not provide breakfast for the loft as there is a fully equiped kitchen in the loft. Please let us know next time you would like to have breakfast and we will be more than happy to serve you an extensive breakfast. Kind regards, Hans and An

Hans is an amazing host! Despite not being able to provide us breakfast, Hans compensated with lowering our bill and giving us a bottle of wine for our honeymoon! The location is ideal and the rooms feel like home. There is also a ton of tourist information available (both from Hans and from his expansive bookshelves. I would stay here again!
