“Perfect Hotel in idyllic city”
Reviewed 30 May 2011

I have just returned from a 3 night stay at the Hotel Jan Brito and I cannot fault the hotel in any way. From the moment we walked in the front door the staff were welcoming and helpful. The room was well furnished and clean, even though it was a bit compact. We had booked a Knight's Room which we had thought would be in the eaves on the hotel as shown on the website, but it wasn,t. This did not distract from the enjoyment of our break as the room was more than adequate and very clean. The breakfast was the highlight of the hotel with a buffet selection to die for - bacon & eggs, cereal, fruit, yoghurt, cheese & meat, smoked salmon and pastries & croissants.... the choice was sublime....!! I would not hesitate to go back to this hotel I don't think you would find better for the price in Bruges. The location was also perfect, set well off the main market square, but close enough to be within easy walking distance of all the restaurants and bars....! I can't wait to return to Bruges and the Hotel Jan Brito

We have just spent two nights at the Jan Brito after a recommendation from a friend and I am pleased to say it came up to expectations. We stayed in a knight room and were satisfied with the comfort and cleansiness of the room and indeed the hotel in general. Breakfast was nice and the hotel could not really be more centrally located, only a 5 minute stroll from the main square. Staff were all friendly and helpful. If you are going to Bruge give it a try you won't be disappointed.

Wanted to plan a 4 day romantic break in Bruge as never been before. Spent a lot of time on Trip Advisor searching hotels & finally decided on Jan Brito. We were not disappointed. Very friendly & helpful staff, we arrived 3 1/2 hours early so our room was not available, however, was allowed to leave our luggage securely so had the freedom to do some early sightseeing. Stayed in a Baroness Room which was very clean & very nicely decorated & the bed was one of the best i've ever slept in. Also liked the fact that there was a separate shower & bath. Also nicely stocked mini bar with small bottled wines, beer, spirits & chocolate, reasonably priced 5Euros wine, 4Euros beer (i've paid more in this country!! Oh & free Wi-Fi which I was using from the room (not Reception).
Breakfast was very satisfactory, nice selection of cooked (altho they seem to like their bacon very very crisp) & selections of salami, ham, cheeses, fruit cereal, breads, no complaints there. There was a lovely garden to the resr by the breakfast/dining room which was very pleasant.
Lastly, location is just 5/10 min walk to the market square. Tip.. Market Day in on Weds, the Food stalls are an eye opener, try not to eat too much at breakfast!!

Room Tip: Baroness Room very confortable & spacious.

We've just returned from a short trip to Bruges. This hotel is a very short walk from the canals & famous market place of Bruges. The rooms are all well appointed (we upgraded to a 'Knights room' - very spacious with spectacular medieval wooden beams) The mini bar was well stocked and just about the same price as the hotel bar - again great value. The multi-lingual staff are extremely friendly and helpful. The hotel courtyard garden is a fabulous oasis away from the city. We sat in the sun and drank freezing cold cava. On arrival the hotel will give you a discount card for all the major attractions and museums.

Top Bruges tips: Canal boat trip - This is a 'must do' . Go early in the day to avoid queues.

Bike Hire: Excellent way to see the city and surrounding area. Hire cheapest from the hotel - €9.00 per day

Segway tour - For the slightly more adventurous - absolutely brilliant fun and really easy to operate. €30 for 1hr or €45 for 2 hrs.

For the evening we found the best value restaurants were 'Diligence' on Hoogstraat and 'Boru' Irish bar on Burg.

There are loads of great bars and restaurants catering for all budgets. The excellent beers tend to be cheaper the farther away from the market place you go.

I thoroughly recommend the Jan Brito (and Briges in general) - certainly worth the excellent ratings.

Room Tip: Make the upgrade to a Knights Room if you can.

We stayed here for two nights in April. The hotel was in perfect walking distance to the main square and near a lovely park and the canal.

We stayed in a Knight room which was beautifully decorated, spacious and clean. The mini bar was well priced and the buffet breakfast was good, with lots of choice and was replenished frequently.

Our room was quiet and was a joy to come back to after a long day sightseeing. We would definitely stay there again.

Having read the reviews on Tripadvisor we booked this hotel for a 2 night stay for my birthday in April. We stayed in a Knights room, which was at the back of the hotel on the ground floor and had a small area outside where we could sit with a glass of wine before going out for an evening meal! It was very quiet, overlooking the garden, and we had no problems sleeping.
Breakfast buffet was lovely with plenty of choice of both hot and cold food.
The staff were extremely helpful e.g. with making restaurant reservations on our behalf.
You can hire bikes from the hotel (which we did) for 9 euros a day, which was cheaper than the local bike hire shops. Rode along the canal to Damme, and beyond to the Siphon restaurant.
