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.
Foot Reflexology & Natural Therapy is also available in our Natural Therapy Centre in The House of friends.
Chantal and Robert, an outgoing Belgian-Australian well travelled couple, and their daughters will be more then happy to welcome you.

The room is really comfortable and cozy and exactly as described here. We had a great time! Thank you Robert + Chantal
Super chambre ! On a l'impression d'être dans un petit appartement, complètement (website hidden)ès agréable, grande salle de bain, petit kitchenette, lit confortable. Super bien placé, à quelques pas du centre ville. Je recommande vivement cet appartement si vous voulez visiter Bruges.
My best friend and I went for a long girls weekend and the House of Friend really helped to make that a perfect one. The location is really central and the room/ studio is really pretty and well heated (for the cold winter months). Robert was very helpful, offering suggestions of where we should dine out. Would not hesitate to stay there again.
A really sweet room under the roof. And very nearby to the center of brugge.
Lovely and cosy appartment, only a few steps away from the Markt. We warmly recommend it to anyone looking for a quiet and romantic time in Brugge.
Magnifique séjour à Bruges! Et très bon accueil de Chantal et Robert !
We had a fantastic stay with Chantal & Robert for 2 nights in January 2014. The room was warm and comfortable with a kitchenette and it's own separate bathroom. The location couldn't have been better, very close to the main square with lots of great restaurants and bars close by. Would highly recommend to anyone looking for a cosy place to stay in Bruges!
A great accommodation and lovely hosts!
Beautiful apartment in the heart of Bruges.
Clean, central, and the hosts have been very communicative and helpful.
My friend & I stayed 2 nights over NY 2013/14. Chantal & Robert were wonderful hosts. The room is cosy with lots of nooks & crannies & low beams (not built for very tall gents!) & the staircase up to the attic room a bit treacherous (bit scary for the unstable or old) but it was ideal for us.
The house is ideally located 5 mins walk from the main square & all the restaurants. We had our own key & were left to our own devices. Worth knowing that the sofa in the room can double as a futon & is comfy! Would definitely recommend for a couple of nights.
