Perfect apartment for exploring Bruges.

The St Jacobs apartment was spacious , very clean and well equipped.

It is situated about 2-3 mins walk from the town centre and is the perfect base for exploring beautiful Bruges.

The owner was helpful and friendly.

Stunning apartment and great customer service

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the St Jacob apartment for 5 nights and I wish we could have stayed longer. Huge apartment with a fantastic open plan living/dining area. The bedrooms and bathrooms were of a reasonable standard but it was really the living space, the incredible honesty bar and the excellent customer service that made this a really special place for us. As others have commented, the stairs are a little tricky to manoeuvre with heavy or bulky luggage, but don't let that put you off - just pack light, it's worth it!

Owner's Response: Thank you for the nice review. Keep in mind this building dates from the 13th century and therefore listed by the government! That is also why we are not allowed to install somekind of an elevator. So I am afraid that it is better to adjust the size of the luggage than the other way around ;-). Regards, Nico.

A reveiw of St Jan in Bruges.

  • 5 of 5

We came for a mid week stay in the last week of August 09 and have to say that we were blown away by how good the accomadation was. The location could not have been improved upon being a 4 min walk from the main square and a 3 min walk fron the cannals. The whole set up here is excellent from the tie up with a local bakery to having 100's of bang upto date DVD's and a very resonable honesty bar for drinks and milk etc. The unit we stayed in has been superb, well appointed, very clean and clearly well run.

To be honest the listing description did not do the place justice. If you come you will be impressed.

The one small issue is to do with the stairs upto the bedrooms. My mother in law is a bit wobbley on her legs and the stairs are a bit steeper and narrower than standard stairs. A few extra hand rails would be useful.

But all in all one of the very best places we have ever stayed in.......

Drie Koningeb

  • 5 of 5

We have been staying in several of the apartments over the last few years. They are comfortable and very clean. Everything works perfectly. Nico and Ann, the owners take extreme care of each of their apartments.

They also have a little shop, where you can get wine, beer, order your bread for breakfast, pick up DVD's, etc... Being totally in the city center is a huge PLUS. But, if you travel by car, they also have several inside parking spaces!

And, their medieval party/meeting cellar is just unbelievable: a master restoration!

For 55+, I would recommend the ground floor apartments!

Wir waren zu sechst an einem Wochenende in St. Jacob um Karten zu spielen und die Stadt zu erkunden. Für beide Tätigkeiten eine wunderbare Unterkunft. Der Raum zum Karten spielen phantastisch. Die Lage des Hauses 1A. Gerne wieder.

The cultural/historic patrimony of Bruges is world famous (UNESCO world heritage) . The Bruges monuments, museums and the historic city centre attract thousands of visitors every year.

'De Drie Koningen' is located in the centre of the city in a quiet neighborhood only 2 minutes away from the main square.

Within walking distance, our guests can visit all the highlights such as the Town Hall, Holy Blood, Groeninghe museum, Beguinage, Brewery 'De Halve Maan ', Chocolate Museum, etc...

Shops and boutiques, supermarkets, restaurants and take aways are just around the corner. The main food market is held on Wednesdays in front of the Belfort.

Tired of walking? We can strongly recommend a canal boat trip. Or what about a guided bike tour in Bruges or along the hundred of kilometers of bike paths around Bruges leading to Holland or to the coast?

In case you want a guided tour (on foot or on bike) we can assist you as well.

And last but not least : 'De Drie Koningen' has a basement 'De Vergulde Fontein' dating from the 14th century. It is considered as one of the best preserved cellars in our city. Regularly on Friday evenings our guests may attend an Argentine tango evening.
