The Abiente Rooms
Ranked #35 of 232 Bruges B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 19 May 2013

My husband and I stayed here for a weekend in March and really enjoyed it. We arrived quite late as our Eurostar train didn't arrive in Bruges til midnight but we had been given a code to use and directions to our room and all worked perfectly. Waiting for us was a bottle of wine and bottles of water - a really nice touch after a long journey and much appreciated.
The room was really nice - large bed, spacious and quiet. The bathroom was modern with bath shower and all very clean.
The location of the B&B is perfect as you can go out for the day but also pop back if you need as Bruges is small enough and the B&B is in a handy location.
The breakfast was delicious - fresh tea and coffee, fresh orange juice, cereals, fresh croissant, hams, cheeses, boiled egg, delicious tomatoes and you are even given a bag to pack with anything you'd like for a packed lunch.
The host was very friendly and warm, checking everything was ok and giving us advice on activites and restaurants.
There is also a little kitchenette/sofa area at the top of the B&B so you can leave food or drinks in the fridge and make a cup of tea or coffee if you wish.
We really enjoyed our stay and would definitely recommend it.

Room Tip: The breakfast is an additional extra charge - but well worth it and you can save money on lunch too.

I stayed with my boyfriend at this bed and breakfast and it was the perfect place to stay in Bruges. The host was very friendly and helpful, she greeted us with a coffee and showed us the best restaurants in Bruges. She was happy to help with anything. The room was so beautiful and the bed was very very comfy! Breakfast was a huge spread of continental meats, cheeses, breads, fruit, yoghurt and it was delicious. There was far too much food for 2 people. We would definitely stay here again as the location was very central (less than a 10 minute to the Markt) and it was a lovely romantic place to stay with a fantastic host.

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...
