“If you don't know what b&b stands for in belgium, you can end up with an unpleasant surprise”
Reviewed 28 July 2011

Because we did not know that b&b is different in Belgium: it's a privately owned house, with rental rooms.
We Reserved the place, but did not realize that there are checkin times. Well, take those times seriously, because there's no reception to check you in if you're late. We arrived in the evening, and there was no one inside, the door was locked. Neither the land line nor the mobile was answered.
So we had to search for another place to stay in.
The owner called us back 2 hours later, apparently she had gone out for a dine herself. We thought she could at least have called us earlier, or leave a note, or just answer her mobile...
It was unpleasant. I do realize it was partly our mistake. Just make sure you don't make the same assumptions...

What a nice place this is. A lot of authentic Bruges-atmosphere in the house, a warm welcome and supernice breakfasts, made by a sweet host. The apartment is just around the corner of the city's centre (Markt, Burg). Very importanat for us: a good big bed. All is provided for in this top B&B. If you want to stay in Bruges.... this is the place to be. Have a good stay!

Room Tip: we stayed in the Belle Epoque Suite

First night of a long motorbike tour of Europe, this was of a higher standard than I needed, but I would definitely return with a girlfriend for a special weekend. The city and the accommodation were both beautiful

A friendly welcoming host, Livia leaves you to yourself most of the time - bear in mind this is a guest house not a hotel, and she is not always there. Much of breakfast was home-made including the orange juice and the honey, there were many little touches that show some real thought has been put into getting it right

If you want a really special week with a loved one, I would highly recommend some time here coupled with a few days in Luxembourg

2 night stay (enough for Brugge), received very friendly greeting from Livia who showed us to a fantastic room, which had a very charming yet luxurious feel. Livia proved to be a brilliant hostess throughout our stay and even drove us to the train station herself when our taxi failed to pick us up (had she not we'd have missed our train and connections!).

In short you'll struggle to find a problem with Livia's, highly recommended....

This is a great little bed and breakfast with a very friendly and helpful host. I stayed in the lovely Belle Epoque suite with my friend from high school for 2 nights (19th-20th May). Situated in a lovely peaceful area a very quick stroll from all the main attractions. The breakfasts are fantastic. Will certainly stay here again in the future!

Central location within easy walking distance of all main sites, Livia gave great recommendations on things to do with young children and places for dinner. Room with a view is perfect as it also offers basic kitchen facities as well as the great view.
Just be aware there are 66 stairs to the room but it's worth it.

this is a beautiful B&B in Bruges. My husband and I have just got back from a weekend at Livia's and had a wonderful stay. Livia is a lovely host who makes an amazing breakfast, best scrambled eggs I've tasted in a long time. The suite is gorgeous and was a welcome retreat from a rainy day. Livia gave us some great tips on things to do and places to eat. Highly recommend this b&b for a romantic weekend away
