About the property

living room, kitchen, large bedroom with ensuite, cosy attic bedroom,

Hamilton, a delightful, stylish house situated within easy walking distance of the market place and the historical, gastronomic and cultural highlights of Bruges is located in amongst the canals of the 15th century Hanseatic area of the city.

The recent restoration - a successful marriage of the old and the new - created a peaceful environment, recommended for a two-to-four persons luxury holiday, or for a family with up to three children. With a little bit of luck, there is a parkingplace (4 hours free with blue disc) in front of the house, but a car is not necessary to enjoy Bruges and his surroundings.

Two bikes are provided for your enjoyment, and both walking and cycling in Bruges, and the surrounding areas is easy and fun. The seaside is easily accessible by road or train, or by bike for those with a little more stamina. You have the entire house at your exclusive disposal. Further information and pictures available on our website. Address of the property ; 8000 Bruges, Krom Genthof number 9.

Guestbook comments from the owner

After 5 weeks of travelling trough Germany, Spain and France, it was so relaxing to stay at Hamilton House. We booked on the net for 4 days, extended to 1 week, and then to 2 weeks, and have enjoyed every day. We have walked our legs off sightseeing in Brugge and Damme. Have caught the train to Oostende, Lille, Antwerp, Brussels Rotterdam and Gauda. The tour to Ieper and Flandern Fields was very memorable, the 11 th November (Remembrance Day) each year will mean so much more now. R&R Stanley, Kalumunda, Western Australia.

We have stayed in many guest houses and apartments in Europe and North America over the years and your lovely house is by far the most beautiful and comfortable. V&D Kaplan, Eliot& Serena, Kent, Ohio, USA.

This is a well-equipped house in a convenient location. We where surprised at how well-stocked your kichen cupboard is. We shall remember Bruges for its massive Saturday market, chocolate, beers, chips with mayonnaise...The Kan family, High Wycombe, Bucks,UK.

A charming, cosy & convenient stay in lovely Brugge!

  • 5 of 5

We cannot praise Raphael and the Hamilton House enough! The location is incredible. We took early morning walks along the gorgeous and quiet canals yet were only perhaps 5-7 minutes away by foot to the bustling Markt and city centre, passing yummy shops, cafes, restaurants and a grocery along the way. The house is on such a lovely, peaceful street, and it is beautiful inside! We kept commenting on how we felt like we were staying somewhere true to Brugge as the decor was very nice. We slept so well in comfortable beds and always felt cosy in the house as our days there were quite cold and wet. The kitchen leaves you wanting for nothing if you plan to cook or eat at the house! Raphael was extremely helpful in his communication and gave great suggestions. Everything was so easy with this entire booking process. For parking, we parked at the train station (3,50/day, open all day) and walked back through Minnewater and the city center and back to the house -- a great way to see a lot of city on our first afternoon there. We hope to return to the Hamilton House one day! Thank you, Raphael & Brugge!

Highly recommended lovely, tastefully decorated home in quiet neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

We three thoroughly enjoyed our 9-day stay in Bruges. Hamilton House was exactly as described, a tastefully decorated three-story home, with comfortable beds, a fully equipped kitchen with modern appliances, and located in a quiet neighborhood, a 10-minute walk to the Markt or city center, as well as to the windmills. Raphael provided all the information about Bruges one could need - and more!

No need to pack your hair dryer as one is provided.

The one toilet with sink is on the second level. The shower, sink, and washer/dryer are accessible through the second floor bedroom. Third floor or attic bedroom is spacious and has additional rollaway bed in the closet.

Modern kitchen is equipped with electric stove, microwave/oven, coffee maker, electric kettle, toaster, refrigerator, dishwasher, pots and pans, place settings for at least a dozen or more.

After being out and about in the bustling center of town, it was a joy every night to come back to HamiltonHouse to relax in peace and quiet.

Thank you again, Raphael, for being such a good host!

Hamilton House Brugge

  • 4 of 5

A very well equipped and comfortable house. Raphael the owner was easily contacted if needed and responded quickly. He called to check we were happy but unfortunately we were out. Wi Fi was good and the house was in a good position. Just a short walk into town. Beds were extremely comfortable and we were able to choose if we wanted large double or twin beds. Two bikes were also provided if wanted. We had a wonderful short stay and would recommend Hamilton House to anyone looking for self catering accommodation in the beautiful city of Brugge.

Traditional house with a sense of history, plus modern amenities to make it comfortable & convenient

  • 5 of 5

Wherever we go on holiday we like to stay in a traditional house in a quiet part of the city, and in this respect we weren't disappointed in Hamilton House. It was comfortable and clean and a pleasant place to spend time in. There is a tiny courtyard with greenery in pots, and when the patio doors are open, you have sense of sitting in a garden. It is only a few minutes walk from the centre of town, and a few minutes in another direction to the moat and windmills. We enjoyed an excellent week there and hope to come back again some time .

A house full of character in a great location

  • 5 of 5

Before our trip all my emails and questions were answered quickly by Raphael and he was at the house to meet us on arrival. We weren't sure what time this would be so there were also arrangements for a key box if we were delayed which was reassuring after a long international flight and train trip.

The house is very cosy and atmospheric. It was lovely and warm which was very important for us arriving in a European winter from Australia! It blends the old and the new very well - love the old but appreciate a hot and powerful shower and a comfy bed!

The location was perfect for us. Very quiet and yet just a quick stroll from the centre for the Christmas market, the restaurants and the shops.

We didn't cook apart from breakfast, however the house is very well equipped if you wanted to do more cooking. There are bakeries within five minutes walk for the morning bread. Coffee and tea are all provided which was very welcome.

I would recommend this property to anyone wanting a break in lovely Bruges.
