Absoluut Verhulst
Ranked #40 of 232 Bruges B&B and Inns
Reviewed April 13, 2014

This is the best B&B that we stayed during our trip in Europe. The decor in this 400 year old home was lovely, the bed was heavenly, and the hosts were amazing. The breakfast was fantastic, and they offered great suggestions for dining and how to get around. Parking was around the corner in a paid lot, and everything in Bruge was in close proximity. This is a wonderful place to stay, and we cannot recommend it enough. The cost of the room was very reasonable.

Room Tip: Make reservations in advance and request the room that you want.

I stayed at the B&B for two nights and had a lovely time. The location is ideal - on a quiet street just a few minutes walk from the centre of Bruges. Frieda and Benno were fantastic hosts - very friendly and accommodating.
The rooms were spacious, well decorated and comfortable. The highlight was the breakfast!

I've stayed at Absoluut Verhulst twice now during weekend city breaks to Bruges. It will always be my first choice for accommodation when visiting the city. Frieda and Benno are the perfect hosts; they couldn't do enough for us. They have a beautiful and characterful home with extremely comfortable and spacious rooms. We had everything we needed and more during our stays. The B&B itself is ideally located for exploring the city on foot. And after a great night's sleep, you'll be treated to a top class breakfast. I cannot fault this B&B. It gets everything just right. Perfect!

We have been staying here for ten years and it's a family favourite. Very welcoming couple run it and its a pretty 5 minute walk into the centre.
We stay in the top floor family loft that has a downstairs with a twin bedroom and sitting room and in a mezzanine upstairs a. Huge double room with ensuite. It's 180 euros a night for all this and much better for a family than two rooms in a hotel as you can really spread out here.

Absolutely loved this B&B! The couple who run it are incredibly helpful. They have numerous travel guides available to borrow, city maps, and even their own food tour map for ideas of places to eat and drink. The rooms are lovely, spacious, clean. And the highlight of our stay was the amazing breakfast they serve up... Juice, coffee, croissants, Danish's, eggs, bacon, yogurt, fruit salad, breads, jams.... You will not go hungry! Can't recommend this place enough, it's also only a couple of minutes walk into the centre of town.

We have just returned from a relaxing few days in Bruges and were so glad we chose to stay with Benno and Frieda. They were the perfect hosts, always ready to help and advise but not intrusive. The location is perfect, near enough to the centre to wlak everywhere but on a quiet side street so peaceful nights sleep. Our room was warm and spacious with ensuite shower room, breakfasts were served in the sitting/dining room overlooking the courtyard. As mentioned by previous reviews Benno ( and Frieda) made delicious eggs, served with bacon, cheese and tomatoes. I particularly enjoyed the selection of breakfast pastries and belgian hot chocolate to die for! Will definitely recommend to family and friends - thank you!

Room Tip: Choose the room with ensuite bathroom

We stayed at Absoluut Verhulst on the recommendation of friends who had visited Bruges earlier in the year. Frieda and Benno made us feel very welcome and couldn't do enough for us. They had maps and guidebooks to lend us and loads of useful information to give us. The breakfasts were fantastic, the B&B spotless and the family loft suite very comfortable. An ideal location for walking around Bruges and not too far from the train station. Anyone planning a trip to Bruges should definitely stay here!
