Reviewed 21 July 2014

Excellent small hotel in characterful building dating from early 1600s. Very central location and only a few minutes walk to all key points of interest. Good, inclusive breakfast. Lovely courtyard garden when weather permits, not on this occasion.

Room Tip: Some upper floor rooms are quite small and have restricted head space over the bed.

Enjoyed a comfortable 4 day stay in this small charming quiet hotel that provides a different experience to your larger modern alternatives. Staff are attentive and helpful, the breakfast is adequate and varied with both hot and cold food in an airy breakfast room looking out onto the courtyard garden. We chose a superior room which was large and packed with period features and furniture a comfortable bed, with a good size modern en suite bathroom in which everything worked and was kept spotlessly clean. The room was at the front overlooking the reasonably quiet street and we had no problem with sleeping. A leisurely 10 minute walk takes you to the city centre .

Room Tip: A superior room gives you plenty of space to relax

The hotel lives up to the earlier reviews ... it is comfortable with an accommodating and gracious staff. We had the cheap rooms in the upper floors so were not privy to the frescoes mentioned in another review, but the rooms are still very nice - spacious with high ceilings and exposed beams, a large bathroom, safe, refrigerator, water kettle, and fixings for coffee and tea. The breakfast (included in the price) comprised scrambled eggs, hard-boiled eggs, sausages, bacon, beans, as well as a variety of cold cuts, breads, fresh fruit, cheeses, yogurt, and juices. We spent time in the fairly large and lovely garden behind the dining area as well as in the bar. Everything was very nice.

The location is extremely convenient - less than ten minutes away from the market square with the belfry and possibly five minutes from the Stadhuis and one of the canal cruises. We walked everywhere.

We all loved the hotel. If we're fortunate enough to see Bruges again, the Hotel Jan Brito is where we'll stay.

Room Tip: Based on the reviews, all the rooms are good. However, the rooms under the roof do slope with the r...

We had an overnight stay in this quaint little hotel. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The rooms were small but comfortable. The lift is not for the fainthearted. Breakfast: bacon, eggs and sausages were cold.

It is hard to find a fault with this beautiful hotel. Location is great only 5 minutes from the main square. Hotel has fantastic character. Rooms are large and decorated with wall and ceiling paintings.
The hotel has a beautiful garden where you can sit and relax. The breakfast was the best we have experienced in ages. Staff couldn't do enough to please and were very friendly and helpful.
Street parking outside the hotel is free for 4 hours as well as an inexpensive underground car park nearby.Many good. restaurants in the area.
We would recommend this hotel above all others in Brugge.

Room Tip: Ask for room in the old section.

The historic aspect to the hotel is played up, which I very much appreciate. It is very well-located--close to a car park and to all the main sights. My room was very nice, on the back and overlooking the garden. Staff were very nice. Breakfast in the dining room was nice also--good choices and helpful staff. All in all, a great place to stay, and I definitely recommend.

Wonderful stay at Jan Brito. The hotel is very close to the main sights but far enough away to be nice and quiet. The staff are very polite and helpful. The room was exceptionally clean and the breakfast was comprehensive. We especially liked the view into the walled garden from the breakfast room.
