... and there was music everywhere. Bands were playing 60's and 70's music and in the main squares there were concerts with all types of music. John was pretty impressed as there was also free beer! You paid 2 Euro for a glass and then could drink as much beer as you wanted. Afterwards you gave the glass back and they gave you the 2 Euro back! The treat of the day was Belgium Frites! Translation: double fried chips served in a cone with a ...
... since they were paid for anyway. Booked for 3 nights too so had a free stay :) thought it might be a good idea not to bother Lisa too much. So that was it. Tour over. Really glad I did it. Met some awesome people that I will keep in contact with but still wish I had started it from the beginning so that I got to know everyone a lot easier. Now it was time to enjoy London for a bit before Oktoberfest and then it's karate in Canada, Russia and ...

We had the pleasure of seeing the most famous dog in Bruge, which
lay on the window ledge of a house that sat on the canal. The golden
retriever is even seen in the movie 'In Bruge'.
Bruge has a significant economic importance thanks to its port. At one time, it was the "chief commercial city" of the world. It used to be one of the first trading ports in Europe. So back in ...

We had to leave Kent at 6am and get ready for the three and half hour coach journey it would take for us to reach Belgium. With only my ipod and a coach full of ladies we headed off for Bruges. Although I moan about long journeys ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Number 11 Exclusive Guesthouse Brugge
We travel often to Brugge and over the past few years have stayed in many of the hotels in the center of the historic city. In truth, I have never been a real fan of B&B, but our stay at Number 11 has certainly changed that perspective. With long time friends visiting Europe for the first time we wanted to find a hotel of great charm. I was nervous to book a B&B but I need not have worried. We so enjoyed our stay that our friends decided to skip their next destination and remain at Number 11 for 4 nights, they savored every moment.
My sister and I stayed in the Vanilla Room July 18-20. We loved everything about this bed and breakfast. The house in general and our room in particular was so charming and thoughtfully decorated. When we came down to breakfast each morning the french doors next to the dining table were open, drawing our eyes out to Annie's beautiful garden. Annie will be your host; this is her business. However, her husband Paul is a very charming and helpful presence in the house. All that I have said here is true and is why I would highly recommend this inn, but the very best thing about the Number 11 is that it resides in Brugge. We found beauty in this city around every corner, overlooking every canal, and in every bite of chocolate. You can count this b&b as one of the countless charms in a fairytale European city.
I booked this B&B on the internet for my husband and I and our 2 friends. I am always a little nervous making travel arrangements for others, but no need to fear at Artist 11 in Brugge! We visited Brugge in February. It was very cold and damp when we arrived, but Annie had a warm fire going in the salon to welcome us. We stayed in the Vanilla room and our friends chose the Garden Suite. Both were wonderfully appointed and VERY comfortable. I was nursing a nasty cold which would normally make me pine for my own bed, but I was so comfortable at Annie's that it didn't even cross my mind. Although we were only supposed to stay for one night, we lucked out. There was a cancellation, and we were able to change our plans to stay another night. If only it could have been longer! Annie and Pavel were fabulous hosts; warm, gracious and full of great information and recommendations. The breakfast spread Annie puts out is scrumptious! We especially enjoyed the homemade croissants, so Annie made extra for us the next day. As mentioned in all the other reviews, the location of Number 11 is great for exploring Brugge and is a most welcoming place to come "home" to after a hard day of touring. Thank you again Annie for sharing your home with us. We hope to return soon.
We recently stayed at Artist 11 for two nights. We stayed in two of their three rooms. Each room was beautifully decorated and the feeling of comfort and warmth was throughout the entire house. The owner's are wonderful! Annie loves what she does and her joy is spread throughout the house. From the fresh squeezed orange juice to the fresh cut flowers, Annie's dedication to her home and guests is indescribable. Annie and Pavel were also very helpful with providing detailed information for finding outstanding restaurants throughout Brugge. Annie helped us to make arrangements for a massage (it was awesome!)-the finishing touch of our stay in Artist 11. Needless to say our stay at Artist 11 is incomparable to anywhere else we stayed during our trip to Europe.
My wife and I stayed there for two nights and we enjoyed every minute there. Number 11 is elegant and romantic, yet cozy and comfortable at the same time. We stayed in the beautifully decorated chocolate room which is very large and bright with its skylights and cathedral ceiling. The large bathroom was a delight as well.
We stayed here for two nights. The house is beautiful but the hosts are even better. Annie is a natural - a warm and friendly person. Helpful for info, knows what people would like to have in a B&B, welcoming but respectful of privacy.
My husband and I just returned from a short trip to Bruges and Brussels. Our first night in Belgium, we stayed at Number 11 in Bruges. First, the town is as charming and quaint as any I've ever encountered. Coming "home" in the evening to Number 11 was something we looked forward to, after a long day of walking, eating, and tasting beer. We stayed in the chocolate room, which is on the top floor, and has exposed attic beams, adding to the rustic feel. The service is top-notch - the owners, Annie and Pavel are quite warm and inviting. They provide a lovely breakfast in the morning (fresh croissants, ham, cheeses, fresh fruits, breads, cereals, freshly squeezed OJ, etc.), and in the evening, the fireplace in the sitting room was on - waiting for our return. I would recommend this place over any other in Bruges, if not all of Belgium. We felt like we were staying with a friend of a friend. The bed was quite comfy, and all amenities in the room itself were luxurious - it almost felt like we were staying at a spa. It was nice to sit near the fireplace downstairs and read their guestbook - people from all over the world have found this charming little spot, and will continue to return. I have not one negative thing to say about this place (or our time in Bruges). You will not be disappointed.
Our taxi driver took us to the wrong address, so when we finally arrived at #11, Annie said "You are home!" I think that about sums up our experience at this fabulous B & B. Annie and Paul are wonderful and warm hosts as well as interesting people. Paul is an artist and his work is displayed in the B & B. He's having a show in Holland soon. We had the vanilla room, and it was spotless, warm and inviting. I'd like to redecorate our bedroom at home to look just like it. We got a tour of the whole B & B, and each of the 4 rooms was more wonderful than the next. The suite is to die for. Breakfast is everything one could need, too much, and the location is perfect, about 2 short blocks to the main square. Annie even puts out tea lights in the parlor in the evening, so that when you arrive back after sightseeing, there is so much ambience. There are fresh flowers everywhere and a beautiful garden. Annie gave us the name of a great restaurant, Bistro Den Huzaar, where I had the best meal (Flemish pork stew) of our vacation. I can't say enough about this place. I miss it. There is a guest book set out and it took me forever to read all the superb comments in it, so it seems everyone has the same impression of this B & B. Number 11, and Annie & Paul are jewels in Brugge.
Ok , so brugge is beautiful ! but where does one go at the end of the day when you have drank endless glasses of beer and eaten your kilos of yummy chocolate? Well, dont let the fact that this is a bed and breakfast give you the impresion that you will be sleeping in a bare bones room next door to the some guy whose is snoriing like a bear in the woods. The Number 11 residence is a gorgeous 3 story buliding hidden away in a quiet side street 25 paces from a beatifull and quiet canal.Our room was equiped with bathroom, phone , and tv. The decoration was modern .This is truly a unique building. In the morning we woke up to hear the singing of Anne's birds coming from her beautifull backyard wich is filled with gorgeous landscape and then we were treated to a delicious home made breakfast , with coffe ,tea, an asst. of breads, cheese,cold cuts,fruit,eggs your way. The owner , Anne De Grave is a great hostes. She is very friendly and down to earth. She was very attentive and she was a wealth of information about brugge as well as the rest of the country.We got to see all the rooms and they are beautiful ! Check out their website and see the pictures. This is a well priced first class acomodation. You will not be diss-appointed if you stay here. Thank you Mrs.De Grave
