About this listing
With Renoir Canals, pointy gilded architecture and stay-awhile cafés, Brugge is a joy. Where else can you bike along a canal, munch mussels, drink fine monk-made beer , see a Michelangelo and savor heavenly chocolate, all within 300 yards of a bell tower that rings out "Don't worry be happy" jingles? And there is almost no language barrier. Rediscovered by modern-day tourists, Brugge thrives. This uniquely well preserved Gothic city is no secret. But even with crowds, it's the kind of city where you don't mind being a tourist. Rick Steves' Europe.
The House of Friends is a 18th- century townhouse, beautifully renovated, in the city centre next to the Astridpark and in 10 min. walking distance from the market square. We offer a romantic studio room under the roof (no elevator) with seperate bathroom and kitchinette. Breakfast is not included but can be provided for on demand or we can reserve a table at one of the breakfast lounges nearby.
Check-in time is at 2 PM or sooner if room is available. When arriving by train you can take bus nr 6 or 16 and get off the bus at the Fishmarket. This will only take you 10 min from the station. In walking distance it would take you half an hour.
CableTV and high speed internet are available.
Breakfast and the best table for fine dining in one of Bruges many restaurants or bistro's can be reserved. Private guided walking or biking tours in to the country side, boat tours on the canals or horse-drawn cabs are available on demand.

Beautiful 3D Preview
What a lovely experience! Chantal, Robert, their 2 lovely girls and adorable puppy 'Teaspoon' made my trip to Bruges such a comfortable, welcoming and warm experience. They were generous with their time and their lovely home and made me feel very much a part of the family.
The location is wonderful, nestled perfectly in amongst all the charms of old Bruges and within very easy access to everything.
My room was peaceful, clean and comfortable, with everything I needed for a little home from home.
Although I'd rather keep it as my little secret, I know that's not the spirit of Airbnb! ;) and so I heartily recommend this lovely place to anyone visiting Bruges, you will be warmly welcomed!
Chantal & Robert were very welcoming and helpful. The room was exactly as described and spotless. The location is perfect and literally a couple of minutes walk from all the main tourist sites, we could not have hoped for better. We took a 5 min walk each morning to Le Pain Quotidien on Philipstockstraat for an excellent breakfast, all natural and freshly made and if you fancy a excellent glass of wine (or two) in the afternoon/evening then Cuvee on the same street is very highly recommended. All in all we had a great time in Brugge and House of Friends was an excellent base to see and do it all from.
Myself and my boyfriend had a wonderful time staying in Bruges at Chantal and Robert's house! The room is lovely, it is very light and airy! We were relieved to find the room to be so comfortable and clean when we arrived after travelling! All of the amenities are there for you! Chantal and Robert were away when we stayed but we communicated over email correspondence with Chantal and she was really nice! She made sure we were able to get in safely! She was available to ask any questions!
The location of this apartment is PERFECT!! Just a short walk into the centre of Bruges! Very convenient if we needed to pop back to get something! Can't recommend this listing enough! Would definitely stay again!!
Cosy and comfortable apartment furnished and decorated with a lot of taste and love. Ideally situated in the centre to discover Bruges on foot. The hosts, Chantal and Rob, were extremely nice and helpful before our trip. Unfortunately, we couldn’t meet them in person, as they were away for the weekend. However, the system to get hold of the key for the house is very practical. I highly recommend Chantal and Rob as hosts and their apartment in Bruges to anyone who’s planning to travel to this beautiful city.
A beautiful, chic and spacious apartment in the centre of Brugge! Honestly the comfiest bed in the world, slept straight through every night!
The location was perfect and meant we could pop back with shopping and to refresh ourselves through out the day with no major interruptions.
Cost very little to get a taxi from the train station to the apartment...We walked on the way back (was quite far with a big suitcase but manageable).
Chantal and Robert were lovely and in contact with us whilst we were there providing us with advice on what to get up to.
Recommend this place very highly!
My husband and I stayed at the Brugge's House of Friends for 3 nights. It's in a wonderful location and the loft is beautiful, warm, and clean. Chantal and Robert were not there however they responded to all our messages promptly and provided accurate instructions for check-in and check-out. Wonderful place and would definitely stay again.
