What a great discovery! Clean, comfortable & very reasonably priced - with the option of self catering in a town with too many stuffy traditional hotels & restaurants priced for the tourist trade - though many are very good, all are expensive. Its location is ideal - in a quiet street tucked between the Bishop's Palace & the Sint Jan Hospital and is <5 minutes walk from anywhere that matters in Bruges old-town. It has secure parking too (priced well below hotel & public parking rates elsewhere). The owner & his wife gave us a very warm welcome and were most helpful without being overly intrusive. What more do we need to know for our next stay in Bruges?

For just over 100 euros a night we stayed in a spacious apartment. The place was spotlessly clean and the facilities excellent. Beds were fine although not very big. Location is superb and the owners couldn't have been more helpful. It also has private parking which is a godsend. Thoroughly recommended.

We stayed at Bonobo for 2 nights in the self contained apartment. The owners, who were very welcoming, were waiting for us on our arrival and our room was ready an hour early so we were able to check in straight away. The room was super clean, facilities were impeccable and the location couldn't have been better. Considering we paid a similar price to stay in a hostel Bonobo very reasonably priced and we were more than happy with our choice. The price also included free wifi. Would not hesitate to recommend Bonobo.

We stayed in the Bonobo for two nights and have a hard time writing a balanced critique of the place. Our stay was practically flawless. The location is great for exploring Bruges, the rates are very reasonable (especially if you choose the self-cater option), the rooms are HUGE by European standards, there is secure parking (another European rarity), free internet, and the hosts are quite friendly. If I were to return to Bruges, I would definitely stay here again.

This place is superb value, a really fantastic place to stay.

Great location in the centre of Bruges, very comfortable apartments with everything you need and really helpful staff. If you can get one on the terrace that's great because you have an outdoor area that looks up to the cathedral. Couldn't reccommend it more!

Well, this is an absolute gem. We stayed in a terrace apartment, that was clean, tidy, not huge but perfect for what we wanted. Only a couple of minutes walk from the centre but still really peaceful. I'd go back here in a heartbeat.

As for the owners, what a great couple. They let us know on the first morning about the belgian rail strike which would affect us. Hans (Mr. Hotel Owner) bent over backwards to help us, letting us use the phone, his office, print outs etc. Gave advice and really helped calm my stresses! We had to leave a day early, and didn't charge us for it.

We spent a night at the Bonobo - it was a perfect find. Close to the city and so well presented. Spotlessly clean, with kitchenette and friendly hosts I couldn't recommend it more highly.
