“Just what I was looking for!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 October 2012 via mobile

This is a great little place with just two guest rooms close to the market square. Room was pleasant and quiet, with a clean modern style. Owner was very friendly and helpful. Wifi was free, although signal could have been stronger. Highly recommend it if you like the B&B/guesthouse type of place.

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 October 2012

Have just returned from a 3 night stay at the Abiente with my wife and parents. We know Bruges well and have stayed in several hotels but the Abiente is certainly the best. The rooms are very clean and tastefully decorated, the facilities in the lounge (fridge, microwave etc) are useful and the location (a five minute stroll to the Markt) is spot on. We met the landlady, Veerle, on arrival and my wife mentioned that the purpose of our visit was to celebrate our 10th wedding anniversary. We were therefore very pleasantly suprised to find a card and a gift of wine and biscuits from Veerle to acknowledge our celebration - excellent presentation and service are one thing but touches like that make all the difference! We shall certainly be returning to the wonderful Abiente!

Room Tip: The room at the back of the Abiente would probably be quieter as it is away from the road. However...

We have just returned from a few days in Bruges and Guesthouse Abiente was the ideal place to stay. Veerle was very welcoming, giving us an extremely useful map and writing on it the places/restaurants etc that we might like. The room was delightful, especially the good shower and the addition of a small guest lounge upstairs. Breakfast is served at a large communal table, beautifully displaying a sumptous array of cold meats, cheeses, breads/pastries, fruit, yogurt, muesli, and assorted jams, not to mention boiled eggs. As previous posts have written, Veerle was happy for us to make up some rolls to take with us, should we require. The location is also ideal, being a very short walk into the hustle and bustle of the city, but quiet enough at night to be able to sleep. All in all, a very pleasurable experience!

Stayed here in July with a friend. The landlady was absolutely lovely, helpful and friendly but never intrusive. Upon arrival, we were given street maps and info on local restaurants etc. The breakfasts were great and of generous portions, and we were provided with sandwich bags to take out leftovers for lunch!
The room was tastefully decorated, the bathroom spotless. We had the use of the spacious attic, which had a fridge, tea/coffee making facilities, comfy settees and a selection of books. The guesthouse is perfectly located in a quiet street, yet only 3 mins from the shops and restaurants.
Will definitely return, and have no hesitation in recommending Guesthouse Abiente.

Room Tip: both rooms are good

We have just returned from a wonderful 2 nights here at Guest House Abiente. The Guest House was 15 mins walk from Bruges train station and 50m into the Centre of Bruges. The location was perfect. It was spotlessly clean and very well appointed. Our host Veerle was delightful and extremely thoughtful. I would definitely recommend booking to include breakfast as theis was a real feast. We were also given sandwich bags to make a lunch to take out so well worth the money. We absolutely loved the Guesthouse, it's location, our host and Bruges too. Would definitely stay here again and would thoroughly recommend it. :-)

Veerle met us and spent a lot of time making helping us get oriented. She asked our interests and made great recommendations.

Breakfast was overwhelming and she was happy to let us save some for later light lunch.

Room includes use of upstairs lounge which is handy, has kitchen facilities there some nice books and a decent view of local roof tops.

Room Tip: Either room is fine.

Guest House Abiente was a truly beautiful. The lady running the guest house was extremely polite and friendly and could not do enough to help us!

The breakfast was absolutely delicious. The rooms are stunning and it is a perfect
location for a city break within Bruges. Within minutes of the town square and the
museums.

Guest House Abiente, really did make our trip and I would absolutely recommend it. The
pictures don't justify just how pretty the house is. We shall be returning next year for another city break!
