Best Airbnbs in Bruges

Spacious Loft for 4

Bruges Airbnb Loft

When you hear “loft” you might think small and pokey – but not this loft. It’s light, bright and super spacious. In fact, there’s room for four with two double beds and a kitchen.

The loft is super charming, with exposed beams and a pretty view out the window. That said, the beams are fairly low which might not be ideal if you’re tall.

Another thing to note is that it can be quite loud outside. As a Londoner, I can sleep through anything – but if you’re a light sleeper this may be an issue.

Although it’s a loft you’ll have plenty of privacy. However, your efficient and communicative host Carlos is nearby if you need anything.

Location: Markt

This apartment is located smack bang in the historical centre, a mere few seconds from the Belfry. Totally ideal for sightseeing. 

Beautiful Studio in Central Bruges

Bruges Airbnb

Another stylish and modern studio apartment, this property boasts an amazing location and is fully equipped for two people.

Sure, it’s a studio so things are a bit cosy – but it’s totally worth it to have such a brilliant location. Anyway, how much time are you planning to spend indoors, really?

The apartment is on the second floor of a heritage-listed building from the 19th century. It really adds to the overall charm of this Bruges Airbnb.

Your host, Koen, is a travel-loving Bruges local with some great tips for what to do and see.

The facilities are pretty much what you’d expect from a great studio apartment (without a full kitchen) – wifi, kettle, fridge – and the coffee machine is also a great touch.

Location: Markt/Burg

The apartment is an Airbnb in Bruges’ centre, so it’s a fabulous location. The main Burg Square is less than 400 metres away, so you’ll never be far from all of the main attractions of the city.

Bright, White and Light

Bright Bruges

Bring your shades; this home is bright AF. And I love it. It’s clean and stylish and equipped with everything you need for a comfy stay in Bruges.

Romy & Travis’ apartment is set in a beautiful historic building, a wonderful juxtaposition of the inside. They’re on hand to help with anything you might need during your stay.

Location: Ezelstraat 

Near to the centre, but with the feel of a cool neighbourhood. You won’t go too wrong staying here.

Modern Townhouse in Central Bruges

Modern Townhouse Bruges

This stylish property has plenty of charm. On the outside, it’s a historic and traditional Bruges home, while on the inside it’s modern with a few quirky touches.

Set over three storeys (which may not be ideal if you have mobility issues), the house has a spacious separate bedroom and a lounge. There’s also a fully equipped kitchen and laundry facilities.

Saskia, your host, is friendly and communicative, but you’ll have plenty of privacy as the whole house is yours only.

Location: Ezelstraat 

Not right in the centre, but just close enough that you can walk to everything within ten minutes. I adore the quirky cafes and restaurants in this area.

Calvarie Guesthouse

Calvarie Guest House

Who doesn’t love a quirky Airbnb? It’s probably my favourite thing about the site – there are all kinds of weird and wonderful options up for grabs.

Take this home for example, that has a swing inside. And a wooden mezzanine that floats above the living space.

The interior is modern and stylish, just as you’d hope for staying near the centre of Bruges. 

Location: Sint Gillis

The property is located about an eight-minute walk from Burg Square, in the direction of Sint Gillis. This location is a great compromise, being a quieter residential area yet still within an easy walk of the city’s main attractions.

Top Floor Suite with Views

Bruges Airbnb

If you’re looking for a romantic stay in Bruges it doesn’t get much better than this place with views of the three towers.

It’s a charming little suite that’s tastefully decorated with a comfortable bed and a small seating area. It is on the cosy side, but that’s the price you pay for the fabulous location.

Your host, Johannes, is helpful and thoughtful with lots of local recommendations if you need any.

Location: Langestraat

This is a perfect location in Brugge. You’re just five minutes on foot from the main square and the city’s top sights.

Modern Home

Bruges Airbnb

A great thing about Airbnb in Bruges is that rather than stay in a cold hotel, you can slip right into a warm and inviting home like this one.

From the stylish kitchen to the open living and dining space (complete with Netflix) you might just never want to leave. This is the ideal spot for groups of friends on a charming city break.

Location: Markt

You’re located right next to the heart of the city with this property. And the views from the terrace are a huge selling point.

Cosy One Bed Studio

Bruges Airbnb

If you’re one of those people who looove pretty interiors, then you’d better steel yourself for this gorgeous apartment.

It’s a total delight. Filled with plants, nude hues and charming traditional furniture, my bet is you’ll be taking photos for decor inspo.

The bedroom is spacious, while the bathroom is modern and surprisingly huge – complete with his and hers sinks.

There’s no kitchen here, just tea and coffee-making facilities – but with so many great things to see in Bruges, who has time to cook?

Location: Markt/Langestraat

Located to the east of Bruges between Markt and Langestraat, the apartment enjoys a fabulous location. These largely residential areas are filled with charming traditional homes, and yet it’s a quick and easy walk into the heart of Bruges.

Uber-Romantic Apartment

Bruges Airbnb

This charming studio apartment is a bit like your favourite Scandi-inspired Pinterest board come to life. 

Even better, there’s a cute little patio where you can have your morning coffee before heading out to explore Bruges.

The space is cosy yet comfortable. There’s also a full kitchen (and gorgeous dining table), so you can whip up a three-course meal. That said, you probably won’t want to; there are plenty of fabulous restaurants nearby. 

Location: Burg

This apartment is just a five-minute walk into the heart of Old Town, which is ideal for sightseeing. 

Gothic Home for Two

Bruges Gothic Airbnb

In the home of beer, why not stay in a Bruges Airbnb that looks totally inspired by a Duvel bottle? And I’m not mad about it.

This Airbnb might be on the smaller side, but it’s on the ground floor (ideal for those with accessibility needs) and comes with a huge king bed and Netflix. Not that you’ll want to spend any time indoors, with some of the best bars and restaurants on your doorstep.

Location: Langestraat

Tucked away down a cosy street near the Langestraat Quarter, you’re only a short walk from the centre of Bruges.

Practical Tips to Consider Before Booking Your Airbnb in Bruges 

  • If you’re looking for value for money, a property with a kitchen is a great way to save on your overall Bruges budget. Even if it costs a little more upfront, it can save you a great deal in the long run as eating out can be quite expensive.
  • Be aware that there is a tourist tax in Bruges – you’ll usually need to pay it in-person to your host. Your Airbnb host will be able to give you more information.
  • Although I love staying in the centre of Bruges, the great thing is that the city is compact and walkable. Therefore, even accommodation options further out are still usually walking distance to Burg Square.
  • Don’t forget that Plum Guide is a great Airbnb alternative – the properties may be on the pricier side, but it’s well worth it for a taste of sheer luxury.
