“Weekend away”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 2, 2014 via mobile

We often take a city break away and considering our budget, quite frankly the best hotel we've stayed in: Cosy and clean, a warm welcome and a great breakfast. Staying anywhere else in Bruges would be a risk. The only negative? The lighting in bathroom; difficult to shave or. as my wife said, difficult for her to apply her make up.

Stayed February 2014, traveled as a couple

This is a well-run, well-presented hotel in a period property with some charming facilities and a lovely courtyard garden. Well located, only five minutes from the main square. Professional and helpful staff.

Nice Hotel in an old city palace. Centrally located and well appointed. Big rooms with antique furniture. Beautiful romantic and remote Garden. Professional and friendly staff. Breakfast buffet could be more opulent.

My husband and I visited Bruges over Christmas and were very satisfied with our stay at the Hotel Jan Brito. About a 15-20 minute walk from the station, it's brilliantly located - on a quiet street but only a few minutes away from the main squares. We stayed in a Knights Room and whilst it wasn't huge it was totally fine for a few nights - with lovely high ceilings and a good bathroom. The service at this hotel was excellent - everyone we dealt with was friendly and helpful. The free wifi was powerful and always working. Breakfasts were pretty good - with hot and cold selection served in a pretty room. The hotel itself is gorgeous, the christmas lights were stunning, and the bar is reasonably priced and very comfortable. I wouldn't hesitate to return and would really recommend Bruges at Christmas for a romantic, relaxing break.

The staff are so welcoming upon arrival of Hotel Jan Brito and they inform you everything on offer during your stay in Bruges. We were even given a booklet of vouchers too so that we could get a little extra back whilst seeing the sights. Having said that, we actually avoided being 'proper' tourists and just made it all up as we went along! However, if you're a hardcore tourist, there's plenty to see and do so you definitely won't be disappointed.

Once we were handed our room key we were guided to our room. It was a stunning standard double and was oozing 'history'! The bathroom was huge and the whole place was really cozy and warm. It was the most comfortable night's sleep I've had in a hotel for years! Super-clean too! I could go on and on but I don't want to bore people, haha!

In conclusion, Hotel Jan Brito gets top marks for cleanliness, friendliness, location to the main centre, value for money and sheer enjoyment! I've already recommended it to a friend who is soon to book a romantic stay in March.

The perfect hotel.

We had a 3 night stay in this beautiful refurbished hotel. Bruges is an old, quaint and special place and this hotel matched the feeling of the whole city. We had a cozy, comfy and clean room with exposed wood roof beams. We stayed here for Christmas and it made our stay very special. Staff were very helpful recommending restaurants and making reservations for us. Make sure you try out the small pub round the corner

Room Tip: Ask for one on the top floor.

We have stayed in this hotel in summer 2012 and decided to stay again this year purely down to the whole experience....
Rooms.. we stayed in 16 and again this year... lots of space.. nice big bed and decent bathroom...
Staff.. are super friendly and always happy to help and point you in the right direction for a nice meal or if your after good nightlife! They couldn't be any more pleasant then the blonde lady we didn't catch her name but she's so helpful and always so welcoming.
Breakfast... faultless.... good choice from cooked breakfast to fruit and yogurt
Overall it's a top hotel for reasonable prices we will be back...
