“Great place to stay in Bruges”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 April 2010

This is a lovely place to stay in Bruges. My husband and I went with our daughter, her partner and 5 -month old grandson. It was very convenient, with free street parking right outside the door, because it is just outside the pay zone. This means a short walk into the town centre, about 15 mins, but that didn't bother us.
There was a small dining/sitting room with a good selection of complimentary teas/coffee on offer all day. There is a fridge with bottled beers and soft drinks at a reasonable charge. This room led to a small garden with a Japanese influence; very relaxing after a long day in Bruges.
We tried the Narai Thai restaurant, a recommendation of the hosts. It was excellent.
Bruges is a lovely city to visit; very picturesque with wonderful chocolate shops.
The brewery visit is well worth it, very entertaining and you get a free sample at the end!

My boyfriend and I stayed at Hip B&B over a long weekend in Bruges. The house is absolutely gorgeous - very modern, beautifully decorated, clean and had an amazing garden. Upon arrival Virginie gave us a map and recommended lots of places to visit, areas to walk around and restaurants. We had a lovely time exploring and all her recommendations were great! The B&B is a good 10-15 mins walk from the centre of Bruges but we didn't mind the walk plus we had good weather. Sometime though, after long days of walking around Bruges, the last thing we wanted to do was another walk back to the B&B! We had lots of privacy and could come and go as we pleased. We chose lie-in's over breakfast for our first two days but on the last day when we checked out and actually wanted breakfast, the owners were nowhere to be found so unfortunately we did not sample the breakfast during our trip. All in all however, a lovely stay at a lovely B&B.

This b&b is an excellent choice if you want to visit Bruges with style. Located at 15 minutes walk from the city centre in a quiet residential area with lots of parking possibilities all around (very important). Guido and Virginie are really kind hosts and they make you feel at home. We stayed in room "Heaven", with a very nice design and a curious bathroom divided between the two sides of the bed. A chic & basic accomodation, somewhat Ikea style, truly gorgeous! Breakfast is served in the common kitchen and it's good and tasty. Last but not least: price is very convenient! Would recommend it to everyone!

My Wife and I have just stayed for two nights in this lovely B&B, as other reviews have stated, the rooms are fine, the breakfast although basic, is more than adequate and the B&B is only a ten minute flat walk to the very centre of town, plus you can park your car for free!

Your host Virginie will gladly recommend local restaurants/local places of interest etc so please ask, we found her local knowledge to be spot on, I have stayed at a number of hotels/B&B's in Bruges over the years and this is one we would use again.

Just a word of warning to anyone driving for the first time in Europe, for some mad reason in side street areas you have to give way to the car entering the road your on from the right! And then only sometimes, so be on your toes, I know this applies in Belgium and Germany it may apply elsewhere.

What I said when I entered the room: Oh my God!!!!! I don't know if I
will be able to express how much I enjoyed this place..It is amazing,
relaxing, clean, the bed was really really comfortable, clean and soft linen, the shower was great. Our room was the "Earth". Very trendy, looks like a decoration magazine. The owners are really polite, really nice. We had so much privacy. The breakfast was good, the basic but with excellent quality. If I had to say something negative about it, maybe the location, because you have to walk about
10 minutes to get to the central square, but even this walk was a pleasure!

  • Liked — The comfort.
  • Disliked — The location.

A 12 minutes walk from the centre of medieval Brugge locates HIP B&B. It is a 3-level home with garden at the rear. Restored tastefully by owners Guido and Virginie Olbrechts, this B&B provides clean, comfortable and quiet dwelling for your short stay in beautiful medievel Brugge.

The rooms are bright, warm with thoughtfully restored in modern interior design. Breakfast consists of juices, cereals, fruit an assortment of breads, yoghurt, figs, dates, local cheese and coffee or tea. If you want an omelete or egg, Virginie will make one.

Little touches like Belgian chocolates on the pillow add to make your stay at HIP B&B enjoyable. This B&B is best suited for couples who want to enjoy the romantic charm of Brugge. Daily room charge in 60 Euro, which is very competitive considering the standards of this B&B. Both hosts are multilingual so don't worry if you cannot speak French or Dutch.

Virginie has much information on sight seeing, places of interest and restaurants. Try it you will not be disappointed.
