Marie's house is on a lovely quiet streetion a residential area about 15min walk from the centre, just inside the main ring road that goes around the city.
We found it randomly on the internet - she has 2 rooms, we had the one with en suite which was 65 euro for BnB and the breakfast was good, rolls, cheese, croissants, ommelette, tea coffee and a little chocolate!
She is very friendly and let us keep our motorbike in the garage.
the room was nice and had tv and th ebathroom great
close by are some nice restaurants and cafes.
A great find.
Address is 14 Ooste Proosse.

This hotel should not be confused with the Ibis Brugge Centrum, a more expensive and probably higher-standard hotel nearby.
Ibis Budget Brugge Centrum Station is a very modern and quite nice hotel for those of you who don't need much more than a place to sleep, but are too old (or unwilling) to sleep in a youth hostel. Rooms are 49EUR a night during the week, and 59EUR during the weekend. Unfortunately, this excludes the breakfast, which, at another 7.50EUR pp comes quite expensive. While the breakfast buffet looked welcoming, we always decided against it and walked a few metres to the cafes next to the train station to get some good quality sandwiches or the like.
The rooms are, as said above, very modern and very small. The available space, however, is very well used. There is a shower, a toilet, a sink and a little table, but no wardrobe so that you will have to live out of your suitcase. TV and wifi are available in every room. What I didn't like was the fact that you could not open the window but had to rely on the air-condition, and that the toilet door was not lockable. Furthermore, the shower is not in an extra room but within the hotel room, so that when you come with a friend instead of a partner you might miss the necessary privacy.
On the pro side, the hotel is very close to both the centre (10min by foot) and the train station (3 minutes). There is plenty of parking for 3.50EUR per day just in front of the house, and there are a lot of cafes just next door. On the contra side, the hotel is very hard to find as there are no signs on the main roads anywhere. The address, Marie Popelienplantsoen, is the square in front of the hotel which, however, is not directly accessible from street level. When you come by car, you should park it on the first level of the multi-storey car park next to the train station. You will then see a hotel sign between the two large buildings. When you come by train, leave the train station and walk up the stairs to your right. There is a SATURN electronics superstore which you have to pass. Turn right and walk up another set of stairs immediately after the store, and the hotel is directly in front of you.
The Floris Karos Hotel is situated in central Brugge, a ten minute walk away from the main attractions of the picturesque squares of Markt and Burgh. We arrived about midday and were told we could not check in until 3pm although the receptionist did most of the paperwork to save time later and we were able to leave our luggage behind the bar. (there is a lockable room for left luggage but this was full when we arrived). The hotel lobby area is stylish with comfortable seating areas, a small bar and internet access via an Apple Mac at the side of the bar. Our room was on the ground floor to the rear of the hotel. En route to our room we passed the breakfast room, a few more lovely looking lounge areas, a childrens play area, small gym and swimming pool. The room was spottlessly clean with plenty of hanging space, large flat screen television and a table and chairs. Complimentary toiletries and a hairdryer were provided in the bathroom & the over-bath shower was powerful with plenty of hot water. We visited in frosty February and were grateful that the room was nice and warm although it did get too warm on occasions. The only thing which let this hotel down was the lack of tea/coffee making facilities in the rooms. Apart from this we had a nice comfortable stay & I even got chance to have a quick dip in the pool which was a really nice way to start the day.
I chose this B&B after seeing really high marks on booking.com and on Trip Advisor, I might have stayed at the place we stayed at last time but the price was much higher and there was a charge for parking. We enjoyed our stay here, the location was quiet, right near St. Anna's church, but within a 10 minute walk of the center of Brugge. We had less trouble finding it than I thought we would as there are only so many points of entry into the city because of the canals. We drove through one of the medieval gates to get there on the east side of the city near the windmills.
Our room was 100€ per night and payment is cash only. The owner, Claire, is very accomodating and helpful, when booking try to let her know what time you will be arriving, especially if not traveling with a phone.
Will definitely look to stay here again on our next visit!
The room was very comfortable and spacious, our room had a shower. Some of the reviews mentioned that there was no door between the room and bathroom which would have made me a little uncomfortable but we did have a folding door between the two. To get to our room on the 1st floor there was a flight of stairs we had to manage with our luggage but not a big deal for us but worth a mention for people not able to manage luggage upstairs. We stayed for 2 nights and the room was not serviced in between, no worry for us as I don't really need someone making my bed or new towels every day.
Breakfast was included in the rate, there were no hot items but there was plenty of food-fruit, cereal, bread, meat, cheese, pastries, yogurt, coffee, juice. Also free wifi and there's also a computer in the main hall that she let us use.
Parking is free between 7pm and 9 am and all day Sunday. During the day between 9am and 7pm, you can park for free for 4 hours so we had to return twice during the day to change the parking card which wasn't a problem because we were nearby.
We stayed here for two nights.
- perfect location
- homemade breakfast was special
- free wi-fi (in Belgium: a blessing)
- Vincent: a good host and friendly
- private bathroom not ensuite
- noisy pedestrian street (cobblestone roads) until 8-9pm
- No TV in room
Memorable experience. A spacious old building in the historical centre of Brugge, close to the main square of the town, was tastefully and skilfully renovated (2007-2008) into a comfortable, calm and highly aesthetic B&B. Shining new and clean. A prominent architectural feature is a huge vitrail representing St Jacob. The owners, a couple of charming young gentlemen, came to pick us up from the rail station (free of charge) and guided us through the labyrinth of Brugge with patience and precision every time we went out. They proudly explained the history of the house when we asked. Their coffee was my highlight of the typical European but deliciously fresh breakfast. Highly recommended, but book well in advance.
The second most inviting and comfortable bed I ever slept in, in more than 50 years - the best being in a friend's house in the Serbian town of Nis in 1976.
We were very lucky to have stayed in this B&B. We were nicely welcome by Tine and she immediately gave us lots of recommendations on sights and restaurants and showed us everything on a map of Brugge that we got from her. The B&B is about 15 minutes by foot to the market place, and on this way you'll already pass by one of the gates, the Ezelpoort, and will see canals. There's free parking in front of the house, and it can be easily reached from the highway.
The B&B/Guesthouse is over the shop where his husband and she is working (restoring old pictures) and next door to where they are living. It has two rooms, one double and one twin room, each with TV, and there's also a nice living/dining room with a billiard table (and lots of flyers on Brugge!). The breakfast was served in this room, too, and it was great, far more than you could eat, with croissants, roles, jam, cheese, ham, cornflakes, yoghurt, etc. And of course you could also get an egg.
Something special was the little kitchen that you could use, with a fridge and all equipment you need. There's a supermarket not far away, so can do some self-catering there. You got tea and coffee for free, as well as cookies and sweets. Also as an extra you did get a big baguette with either cheese or ham at breakfast, as lunch packet. So you won't need much more for lunch – especially not after this breakfast!
Besides there are bicycles that you can take to cycle a bit, really great. Mine was rattling a bit on all this cobblestones in Brugge, but they were absolutely perfect to see a bit more of Brugge.
A few minutes pleasant stroll from Grote Market, Burg Square and the centre of town. Located on a narrow residential street it is quiet and pleasant.
It is an entire duplex flat, the stairs are steep and narrow. Very large but somewhat overloaded with 'knick-knacks". A bit kitchy for my taste, but not displeasing.
The kitchen is fully supplied. The bathroom location a bit awkward for more than a single person. One must close off half the flat to have any privacy.
The bed is a large double and comfortable, there is also a single bed in the opposite corner. The bedroom is large and pleasing with a skylight and open wooden rafters. Good strong private lights for each side of the bed. Clock radio provided.
Very clean and well kept.
The owner is a very friendly and helpful person. She is willing to pick up visitors at the train station.
One can take the flat with or without breakfast.
We live on only a alf hour drive from home so we didn't sleep in Bruges.
In any ways, it should never be a place I'll go to sleep, unfortunatly because with the money for a room there we go 8 days on holliday.
Nous vivons à seulement une demi-heure de voiture de Bruges aussi n'avons-nous pas dormis sur place.
De toutes les manières, ce ne sera jamais un endroit où j'irai dormir, parce qu'avec de l'argent pour une chambre là nous partons 8 jours en vacances!
They are the counts de Flandres who build this new palate with the 14è S. The counts of Burgundy who remained here during the 15th century arranged their castle even more luxuriously.
The counts lived it as well as part of their personnel, the civils servant and the guests of the court. After the death of Marie of Burgundy, Philippe II sold part of the buildings in 1576 and the remainder of the buildings was sold in 1631.
A round and imposing tower is located at the corner of the castle, in top of this one is a encorbellant bridge with arch. This adds a medieval touch to the castle.
Ce sont les comtes de Flandres ont fait construire ce nouveau palais au 14è s.
Les comtes de Bourgogne qui séjournaient ici au cours du 15 ième siècle ont aménagés leur chateau encore plus luxueusement. Les comtes l'ont habité ainsi qu'une partie de leur personnel, les fonctionnaires et les invités de la cour.
Après la mort de Marie de Bourgogne, Philippe II a vendu une partie des batiments en 1576 et le reste des batiments a été vendu en 1631.
Une tour ronde et imposante est située au coin du château, en haut de celle-ci se trouve un pont à arche encorbellant. Ceci ajoute une touche médiévale au château.
I have stayed at a couple of different places in Brugge and have been to Guido Gezelle twice and will continue to go stay here. Caroline is the owner of the B/B. She is very friendly and helpful with advice around the city. The thing I like most about the place is that while Caroline is always willing to talk, it is not a B/B where you are sitting with the family and feel as if you are intruding on their house. The B/B has it's own entrance where you can come and go and not disturb Caroline and her son, but she is always available if you need something. The rooms are clean and have everything you need. The TV has Belgian, German, and English channels. Breakfast comes with your room and is served in her dining room. The B/B is located about a 10-15 minute walk from the main square, depending how fast you walk. It is located in a neighborhood, so it doesn't have that touristy feel with hordes of people walking by and every store/restaurant/bar you could need is within a couple minutes walk.
We were fortunate to stay 4 nights at Tine's guesthouse. The guesthouse is a separate apartment next to her home with two bedrooms- one with two twin beds and a shower, one with a double bed and a bath. She rents out the bedrooms individually or together. There is also a full kitchen where we cooked our suppers two nights, a large living room with the breakfast tables and a huge comfortable sofa, and a central courtyard where you can sit in the sun on nice days. There was another couple in the twin bed room for two nights while we were there but we never saw them or heard them. Tine is the most gracious hostess with a quick wit and an infectious smile. She has stockpiled everything you could possibly want- bicycles, umbrellas, hairdryer, iron, roll away bed, and extra linens. She will give you an orientation map,point out all the important sights, suggest restaurants, and she even dried my laundry when it rained! Every day she makes an elaborate breakfast of your choice: rolls, sweet rolls, cereal, fruit, eggs of your choice, chocolate bar, coffee or tea, ham, and cheese. If that is not enough, she will make sandwiches to go for your lunch and she will pick you up and take you back to the train station. One feels truly spoiled. At most it is a 10 minute walk to the market or burg- that is saying you remember to walk and not stop to take pictures. I managed to shoot a roll of film before I ever got to the market square! The grocery store is one block away.
Tine also has bicycles in the foyer of the house which you can take to go shopping or touring.
This was by far the best place I stayed on my trip to Europe. The place was beautiful, Dominique was exceedingly helpful, and everything was in walking distance. The room was very large compared to the hotels we stayed in, with our own private full bathroom. Everything was spotlessly clean. Dominique laid out a beautiful breakfast each morning in their charming dining room with many things to choose from. I can't say enough good things about my stay. We left one of our passports there and Dominique went out of her way to get it to us at the train station.
Very affordable $60/night total for 2 people. There is a beautiful park right across the street with a huge sunflower field and a pond with swans swimming in it. Large room with full bathroom. Outstanding staff, spotlessly clean accomodations.
We rented a three-bedroom traditional old house at the edge of the old town. It was right across from a canal. It was wonderful. The house was spotless, well-equipped and was much less expensive than an hotel. Plus you can cook a few meals of your own and have a comfortable place to sit around.
Nice, clean, good location - quiet and away from tourist activities and yet within a short walk of everything. It was fun walking to small local restaurants for dinner. It was truly the real Bruges away from tourists and yet in a very historical area
We stayed at a hostel, i am sorry i cant remember the name! I had a good time because I was with my friends. However the food was AWFUL! It was chicken every night, 1 dish was in some sort of sauce and it quickly got the nickname 'Chicken A La Flem!'
They had a TV with BBC1 & BBC2 as well as belgian channels, a pool table and plenty of seating, other than that very basic also an overpriced vending machine.
We left Rosyth on Friday evening, arrived in Zeebrugge on Saturday morning. Brand spanking new boat, everything clean. Cabins neat and tidy in good condition, comfy beds. Cute wee toilet and shower room.
Some of the staff were friendly some were a bit stony faced (health club attendant, you know who you are !!!).
Food was delicious and plenty of it, suppose that's to cater for the rather large truck drivers?
