“Excellent Guesthouse”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 March 2013

My husband and I stayed at Guesthouse Abiente at the beginning of march. This is a fabulous guesthouse and is very close to the centre of Bruges. We stayed in the grey room which was beautiful. The bed was huge and very comfortable. The guest house also has a shared lounge upstairs with a small kitchen including tea and coffee making facilities and a comfortable seating area. The hosts Willem and Veerla were exceptional. Upon arrival Willem showed us around and then took the time to provide us with a map of Bruges telling us about local points of interest and helping us to choose a resturant (which he even booked for us). The breakfast was excellent and plentiful and Veerla also asked us to take some more food for lunch later. This guesthouse is a gem and I would not hesitate to recommend it.

My boyfriend and I stayed at Guesthouse Abiente in early January 2013, and enjoyed every minute. It is an excellently designed and stylishly decorated house with plenty of light. Breakfast was delicious, and allowing us to take some more food for lunch was really generous.

The two hosts were exceptional: they were friendly and welcoming, but allowed us our privacy, and gave us top (local) tips on where to eat and drink - we even got brought to an all-night club by the very friendly staff in one of the bars they recommended to us!

In short: you cannot go wrong with Guesthouse Abiente; exceptional value for money, and in a perfect spot in the city. Thank you!

What a lovely little guest house! My boyfriend and I stayed over the weekend for a city getaway from London, and the guest house Abiente is exactly what you would want to compliment the beautiful city of Bruges. The room was very well decorated and felt very homely. The breakfast was brilliant and the lady owner was very helpful and even gave us paper bags to make sandwiches for lunch with the leftover food. The shared lounge was very comfortable and came in handy after we'd checked out and had to wait for our night train. The free water/ wine in the room, Bruges information and departing bag of goodies were a lovely touch. Overall, highly recommended!

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.

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
