Reviewed January 7, 2014

Jan Brito is situated about a 20 minute walk from the train station and about a 5 minute walk to the main square where the Christmas Markets were. We were in the Knights room which is situated within a courtyard. It was fairly big but narrow so difficult to store luggage. It appeared to be a restored medieval room which gave it a great feel. It had a great sized bathroom and bath, comfy large bed. The room was serviced daily. It is situated next to a powered sliding door and lift and smoking point which caused some noise/smell. The electrics of the room was finical - we managed to blow fuses/trip the power twice. Breakfast was a decent spread of continental options. The hotel is a good location to all major attractions. It is a magnificent town - really worth going to. We did a day trip to Brussels and Ghent from here - about a 30 minute train ride.

The reception at the hotel was beyond what you can expect anywhere, the service oozed of excellence. After some quick instructions on how and where to park the car we checked in quickly and found our room perfectly clean and tidy, with a bath tub, great plus. The receptionist helped us point out where we could find the places on our itinerary as well, so we didn't have to fuss around with that. The location was very nice, five minutes away from the main square and the tourist trails but still quiet and laid back.

The sleep quality was good, although the room felt a little humid, but I guess that might the case everywhere in a city with water all around.

Would easily stay here again.

The location is ideal--the 4 short blocks to the Markt mean that it is not noisy. We had a Junior suite-Marquis room-in the old building with four large windows looking out at the side street. The room was immense with a sofa, table and chairs and a desk. The bathroom was also large and bright. The staff were sweet and helpful. we arrived before checkin time and they graciously stored our bags while we went off sightseeing. Breakfast room is bright and the food selection quite good.

Yes, it is an old building and the floors are uneven and it may seem dusty to some, but the location, charm, service and quiet make this the ideal hotel in Brugge. Not cheap, but good value.

Room Tip: The large room was lovely though for only one to two days the smaller ones are worth considering to...

We had a nice room - a twin room on the second floor. The room was clean and nice and warm. The ensuite (bath with overhead shower) was also clean. Unlike some others we had no problems with the lift while we were there. Breakfast was plentiful (breads, pastries, cereals, yoghurts, some hot foods). The hotel had a nice lounge area with an open fire. The man on reception was friendly and very helpful.

The hotel was well located for the centre of Bruges, but was in a very quiet area. We walked from the train station.

We stayed here for 2 nights en route to Koblenz in Germany. A delightful hotel well positioned, just a short walk from the main square and plenty of old cobbled streets. We stayed in one of the less expensive Maids Rooms on the top floor. This was small but delightful, and had everything we needed. The bathroom was nice, though a little tired, the shower was good, but just sat over the bath with a shower curtain, not a screen. However we were not really bothered by this, the water was always hot, and at least we had the choice to take a bath if we wanted. The room was warm and had lovely old wooden beams and a vaulted ceiling.
The breakfast was included in our booking, and was substantial with a good choice of cereals, cold meats and cheese, bread, fresh rolls, pastries, yoghurts, fruit, hot dishes, fruit juices, teas, and coffee. We made the most of our breakfasts as it is really quite expensive to eat out in Bruges. Bruges itself is a beautiful old city, plenty of lovely old buildings and quaint little cobbled streets, and of course the waterways. We followed a suggested walk around the city marked out on the map from the Hotel reception, it took you down streets you would otherwise not venture down, it was a lovely hour long walk we did earlyish one morning, and worth doing if you feel energetic.
There was a hotel bar, we had a drink here one night, but there are some great places to drink in Bruges itself with more atmosphere, but it was nice to have a drink just before retiring to bed. I would happily stay here again, it's not the height of luxury but it is comfortable, warm and a reasonable price.

Room Tip: The Maids Room we had was small but not cramped, with a decent sized bathroom. We have stayed in sm...

We enjoyed our stay at this charming and welcoming hotel. The standard room was small but suited us, as we were out most of the day anyway. It clean though, warm and had some lovely beams, we found it quite romantic. There was a reasonably priced mini bar, but could have done with some mineral water though.
Excellent position in a pleasant part of town, close to the centre ...but just far enough away avoid noise etc

This hotel is a little off the beat and path of the chaos of Bruges center -- the Market Square. About a four block walk, through quiet streets filled with shops and restaurants, this hotel excels at being unconventional and quirky. First, there are two separate buildings...old and new. I stayed in the NEW building, which was perfectly fine -- very charming and cute -- but definitely less quaint than the old building. Also, the new building's elevator is an experience (it's filled with its own series of quirks). All in all, I can only recommend this place since the service was top notch and the hotel perfectly served its purposes.

Room Tip: I stayed in the BUDGET SINGLE ROOM which was fine but the bed was VERY narrow...even narrower than m...
