TravelPod Member ReviewsHotel Jan Brito Brugge
Auf gut Glück sind wir ins Zentrum von Brügge gefahren. Unser Navi zeigte viele Hotels an. Als wir das Jan Brito sahen, parkten wir und fragten um ein Zimmer. Wir hatten Glück und bekamen eines. Die Receptionistin war sehr zuvorkommend, zeigte uns alles und gab uns auch Empfehlungen für das Abendessen.

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Jan Brito Brugge
Nice Original Hotel
Just returned from long weekend in Brugge on sunday 17th Oct.
We originally booked the standard 'Knights' room but on arrival was slightly dissapointed at the size of the room so we asked for an upgrade to the
Baroness - A gorgeous and very clean room with a lovely chandalier, the Bathroom had a seperate bath and shower and the temperature was just right.
There was some noise at night but it is such a small town and what with most streets being cobled there's bound to be some noise.
On the whole will recommend it to everyone (do not book the standard room though)
Nice place to stay
My husband and I stayed 2 nights in the Baroness room at this hotel. The hotel is on a very quiet side street yet walking distance to the middle of the town. The staff was nice and the breakfast was great. Our room overlooked the garden courtyard. It was very clean and the bathrooms were quite large. We had a 2 story room, and with 2 huge suitcases this was challenging getting them up the stairs. The stairs can be a problem as they are a little smaller then what I am used to, but it is well worth the stay. We would stay at this hotel again on our next visit to Brugge.
We had a problem with the booking due to an erro at the travel agent. The staff sorted it out and were considerate in the polite at all times.
We plan to go back to Brugge and will use the hotel again
Not quite sure why people are rating the Jan Brito so highly.its an ok hotel but certainly not at the level that people have described .Its position just off the main tourist area is ideal and the staff are pleasant but it certainly doesnt fall into an "outstanding" hotel . I stayed in a Baroness room but was a little disappointed after some of the descriptions . The bathroom was plain ,the shower ( a simple shower hose and curtain around the bath ) was below average with random temp changes !! . The bedroom was bigger than normal but certainly not "enormous " .The furniture was mainly old sale items and although the view over the garden was nice the curtians would not pull together so most people had as good a view of me as i had of them in the evening .
Breakfast was again,ok, but surely could not be described as anything outstanding ....
Jan Brito tries hard and is a pleasant,clean hotel in a good position but it certainly doesnt rate has highly as some have shown .
My husband & I stayed at the Jan Brito hotel for 4 nights in April 2004. It was outstanding. We requested a Baroness (luxury - mid range) room. Although it wasn't a listed as a suite, it might as well have been. The room was enormous & it it had a separate sitting room with a TV, etc... So if one of us was napping, the other could close the doors to the sitting room, & watch TV, read, etc... The bathroom was also huge with a separate shower & tub, towel warmer, etc.... The only draw back was that our room (Rm #19) was on the 1st floor. So you would occasionally get noise from others passing with loud shoes on the wood floors, either in the morning going to breakfast, or coming in late @ night.... But since ours was the only room on the first floor of the main house... maybe thats why it was so large???
I would definately stay there again.
My boyfriend and I have just returned from a weekend in Brugge, staying at the Hotel Jan Brito. What can we say... except that we can find no fault with the hotel at all. Before leaving we decided that we will be returning again.We cant recommend this hotel enough.
Another thumbs up for the Jan Brito
Mercifully the Hotel Jan Brito is not right in the middle of the touristy section of central Brugge, but on a quiet side street that is still only steps away from anything your tour book recommends. We stayed in the charming and near-opulent Baroness room, with its paneled and gilded walls (and roomy modern bathroom) and enjoyed a peaceful night's sleep in January. During busier months, booking a room overlooking the garden probably affords maximum quiet. The breakfast was amazingly delicious: even in winter the fruits were fantastically fresh, and the crisp croissants, smoked salmon and hot eggs were just the right thing. But above all, the staff at the Hotel Jan Brito was unfailingly sweet and helpful.
A perfect hotel. Right in the centre of Brugge with private parking. We stayed in the Baroness Room -an amazingly large room decorated to a very high standard. The bathroom was enormous with big bath, separate shower & the toilet in a separate room. We opted for "breakfast in bed" & received the biggest tray of food you can imagine. The room was so wonderful that we really had to drag ourselves out to explore. Even our little dog was made to feel welcome - there's a park opposite the hotel so ideal for walkies! I can't recommend this hotel enough. We have already booked to go back!
Our large (Baroness -or middle- category) room was on the (US) 2nd floor on the street side. It could have been an unpleasant situation as the city was getting ready to make repairs, and there were several jack hammers in operation. Fortunately it was Friday, and so the workmen not only quit at 4 PM --and didn't come back until we were ready to leave-- but, because of the construction, the authorities closed the street for the entire weekend..The rooms at the Jan Brito are all individually decorated and differ significantly in size. But , all else equal, if noise bothers you, try to get a room on the garden side.The staff was quite helpful with suggestions for dinner. One - De Lottenburg - provided us with what was an absolutely outstanding meal: we splurged and got the set dinner with wines (two bottles, matched perfectly with the food, for the four of us). It was a culinary delight!And speaking of meals, breakfast at the Jan Brito was well above average --with lots of fruit, juices, cheeses and meats and an ample choice of warm dishes.The Jan Brito is not a luxury establishment, but it is a good, solid, well-run four-star hotel, and we would not hestitate to stay there again.
Hotel Jan Brito
The Hotel Jan Brito is well-located in Bruges on a peaceful side street, but just minutes walk away from wherever you want to be.
Formerly three (17th century?) houses formed together to create an intimate hotel in 1995. Loads of atmosphere. We stayed in one of the 2nd (top) floor rooms with wonderful old beams, yet all the mod cons you would expect from a 4 star hotel were in evidence. We overlooked the lovely garden to the rear of the property. The staff were friendly and welcoming. I'd stay there again.

Wir sind am Abend noch die 130 km von Mons nach Brügge gefahren.
Dort haben wir ein kleines, feines Hotel zum Übernachten gefunden. Nachdem wir unser Gepäck auf das Zimmer gebracht haben, sind wir zum Abendessen in ein Restaurant gegangen.
Anschließend sind wir müde und satt ins Bett gefallen.
Nach dem Frühstück suchten …
... some small cafés, and some places of business hidden inside buildings that seemed to be centuries old. Then we found the chocolate shops. Oh my goodness, the chocolate shops. It didn't take us long to decide that we needed to do a self-guided chocolate tour through Bruges. We stopped at every single shop we came across while on our way to city centre, and had some chocolate. Dark, Belgian chocolate. My mouth is watering as I am typing. Belgium is known for its chocolate for a ...

Not wanting to rely on such flippant directions, we asked the waiter for directions to Bruges. He told us it was very simple: just follow the canal. Still not convinced it could be that easy, we biked our way to the tourist information center where I was hoping to get a detailed map. They didn't have any, and the woman repeated what the waiter said: "It's very easy, just follow the canal."
And so we did, it was ...
... creating great art, architecture and engineering over the centuries, while a seemingly equal amount went into waging war and destroying much of it in the process. However it was interesting to learn that apparently Hitler appreciated the Vimy Ridge monument as a work of art and ordered that it not be harmed in WW2.
We arrived in Bruges in the late afternoon and had a little trouble finding the right parking lot from which we were supposed to take a bus ...

Arriving in Bruges, we find Hotel Ensor on the side of a canal just inside the historic old city. Hotel Ensore features small rooms with old unmatched furnishings (read inexpensive) with windows opening over the canal. They offer a nice assortment of items for breakfast in the morning. The location is just inside the old town.
