This hotel is amazingly beautiful. If you love antiques, history, and charm, this is the perfect hotel for visiting this historical and magical city. We will definitely stay there again when we return to Burgge. The staff was wonderful and very accommodating. We had our dog, a four year old and needed help with parking and they were helpful with everything. If you do have kids, there is a great park nearby as well. Located within walking distance to everything. Extremely clean rooms and unbelievably charming over all.

Room Tip: Some rooms are off of the main street and much quieter, others look out on the garden, ours was on a...

Hotel is full of charm and character and in a great position in the centre of Bruges. Staff are friendly and helpful as one would expect.
The lift to the back rooms is not for the faint hearted , its unnerving as you step in and have to hold the button down to make the lift move, if you hesitate and release the lift stops suddenly between floors, certainly do not let your children use on their own.

This is a nice old building. The room was clean and had a large bathroom. Breakfast buffé was nice, but nothing fantastic. Very close to the town center, and with free wi-fi. A nice indoor parkingbuilding close by with reasonable prices.

Yes it is a lovely building in a good location and with friendly and helpful staff.
But I paid for a 'superior' room and was very disappointed - mainly with the size ... it was barely wider than the bed - so I was left wondering what size a standard room would be!
And a small (but heartfelt complaint) ...why is it so difficult to supply boiling water for tea? Despite several requests, we never got water hot enough to brew a tea bag.

Room Tip: If you're paying for a room upgrade, ask about the size of the room you are getting.

Stayed here for a weekend in July 2014. wasn't disappointed! Hotel was lovely (only 8 euros in taxi from train station) and staff there were very helpful. Loved the building's original features and how it was furnished! Very close to the canals, fish market and main square in Bruges. was so easy to get your bearing and find your way around. Didn't get lost once! The canal boat rides are worth a go and very cheap! Stayed in a deluxe room at jan brito which was a good size, clean and had a modern bathroom. Was worth upgrading to one. Mini bar was a bonus also and quite reasonable prices! Only fault I found was breakfast. Wasn't a huge selection but it did the trick. Would definitely return to Hotel Jan brito again!!! Another tip. Its fairly expensive in Bruges! If you can afford a lobster meal do it and remember to try every Belgium beer on offer!!!! You wont be sorry!!!

Room Tip: upgrade to a deluxe room if you are looking for a romantic weekend!

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.
