We have a 16 year old son who is now too old, and too tall ,to sleep on a sofa bed or on a put-me-up in the same room as us, so the two bedroom XXL apartment in Hotel Bonobo was a perfect solution. We drove from the UK and my husband was delighted that his precious car was could be safely parked in a gated car park (you reserve a space on their website booking form so parking was easy).
The owners are lovely and spoke excellent English. On arrival you are given a small guidebook and decent map of Brugge to borrow during your stay,plus lots of useful information on events, restaurants etc which is a lovely touch. The apartment (which is on the top floor - but there is a small lift) was immaculately clean, spacious and had stunning views from every window. The apartment was split level, with three steps separating the large bathroom and lounge (with new flat screen tv, on which you could access many English speaking channels including BBC1 and 2!). The kitchen area was small but perfectly adaquate for making breakfast and lunch. It included a full-sized fridge, ceramic hob, microwave, kettle and toaster.
Eating out is expensive in Bruges but, as it was only a few minutes walk to all the main tourist attractions, it was easy to pop back for a simple lunch. There is a Carrefour Express mini supermarket and a good bakers shop less than 5 minutes walk away.
We stayed for 4 nights and we immediately felt comfortable and at home. During one of those days we took the train to Gent as the train station was only a 15 minute walk away.
The apartment has radiators which can be both indivdually controlled (and switched off if necessary) and controlled overall by a termastat in the dining area. The velux windows can be opened to different degrees if you get a bit hot, which is perfect.
We would definitely recommend this apartment to any family with older children.
