Without hesitation, I would recommend De Hoedenmaker to anyone looking to have a wonderful stay in a quiet neighborhood in Bruges. The description in the listing is completely accurate, as are the many positive reviews. Francis & Marie-Christine are wonderful hosts, and strive to give every guest a wonderful stay. They are careful to make sure all details are perfect -- even having coffee, Belgian chocolate and Belgian beer waiting for you upon arrival. They clearly want each guest enjoy their time in Bruges, and we are very thankful for the hospitality they showed to us. The house itself is wonderful, and perfect for families. It is a very short walk to the bustling Markt area, but far enough away to be a respite from the crowds Our family hopes to return to Bruges someday, and when we do, De Hoedenmaker will be our #1 choice.
