We arrived to the hotel after a 10 minute walk from the train station a couple of hours before check in (3pm) and were quickly shown to our room no problem. The lift is quite old and temperamental so use the stairs. The rooms are quite cozy but clean and functional with lovely exposed beams and original features.
The location of this hotel is ideal, just far enough away from the busy market but a close walk to the centre. With good shops, pubs and boat tours.
The best thing about this hotel is the staff, especially a tall gentleman ( didn't get his name) who ran the check in desk, queries and the bar area by himself all with excellent customer service.
Overall, a great experience and highly recommend the hotel.

Seven of us stayed at Jan Brito for four nights during a trip to Bruges. We booked six months in advance so got a really good deal on four double rooms. The rooms themselves were a little on the cosy side but well appointed and, considering that we only slept in them, were quite acceptable. Staff were friendly and helpful and the bar was comfortable. Excellent buffet breakfasts were provided in a really elegant dining room. Beautiful bacon, delicious sausages, scrambled eggs and beans went down a treat along with gallons of really good coffee. If you are given rooms on the second floor of the annex, beware of the slowest lift in the world. I was on crutches at the time so was forced to use it. You can age considerably during a single trip.
Jan Brito's position is excellent, just a few paces from the fish market and not much further from the central square. Should we visit Bruges again, we'll definitely opt for a repeat experience.

We stayed here for 3 nights in September. The hotel itself is lovely, clean and well-maintained. Bar and mini-bar prices are decent too and the breakfast was great. The staff are wonderful!

The hotel itself is quite quiet and we felt a bit odd sitting in a completely deserted bar but the barman happily brought our drinks order to the hotel room.

The hotel is within walking distance to most major tourist spots. From the station, it cost us about 10 euros and took less than 10 minutes to get there. If we'd known where we were going, we could have walked!

We stayed here for a weekend. It's got a great location, close enough to all the sights but down a reasonably quiet street, so it wasn't too noisy outside. Room was excellent, and the service from the staff was great. Would come back.

We stayed at the Jan Brito for 3 nights and had an excellent stay in a great location. The room (which was a maids room I think) was plenty big enough for a few days and very reasonably priced.

We wanted an old-style hotel to suit the city and that was what we got. The room was really charming with high ceilings, wooden beams and a huge bed. The room was really clean and was made up to a high standard every day. Plenty of hot water and well heated, no dramas whatsoever.

The staff were really helpful and friendly and we really enjoyed just reading in front of the fire in the (well priced!) bar of the hotel. The breakfast was great and we had no problems with the Wi-Fi.

The only reason I am not awarding 5 stars is because of the lack of shower in the room. It was nice to have a bath, but the novelty wears off after a couple of days when you want to rush out!

All in all an awesome stay for a romantic break away.

Having researched many Bruges hotels I chose this hotel as it had great feedback and a great location. The location is fab and the staff were helpful BUT.....when we checked in and got to our room (room 3) we were so disappointed. It was dark, dingy and not very clean. Dust had collected so much in the corners and around the edges it was even visible to my boyfriends non OCD eyes. Walls were scuffed and marked, it just generally seemed run down and not looked after, not what I expected for the price paid. We then woke on the Saturday to no hot water, I totally understand that this can happen but we were told to wait one hour, well, we couldn't. Start the holiday with no shower...great!

This was planned as a surprise and to be honest I felt embarrassed that I had chosen this hotel as there were many others around this price that I think may be better.

Can't take away from it the nice staff, good breakfast, good location and wi-fi throughout but I wouldn't come back here.

Room Tip: Don't choose room 3!
