Welcome to Barabas

an ode to the hospitable city of Bruges where we have lost our hearts.

The bed & breakfast is uniquely and quietly situated in the historic town centre of Bruges, along one of the most picturesque canals. The majestic 16th-century mansions and the idyllic garden on the waterfront more than fire one’s imagination. The soul of the buildings has throughout the years been preserved with love and in the guest rooms the authentic elements can be admired. We added a contemporary and fresh touch for all mod cons. With us, you get to enjoy a quiet and unique stay in Bruges. That’s what we stand for! Steeped in Bruges tradition!

Sanseveria Bagelsalon

Sanseveria zaakvoerder - Bert

It was a dream come true.

Since 2014 you can daily enjoy a special breakfast, a savoury lunch or some delicious cake just around the corner of the B&B. Right, at Sanseveria. The dream to commercialise a living room is spot on at Sanseveria. The Walhalla for bagel lovers has been an established name in Bruges for years. A place where locals & tourists meet, where grandchildren enjoy together with their grandparents. A place where everybody feels welcome. Sanseveria is the first descendant of this enterprise. Later a second location with accompanying guest rooms saw the light of day near the seaside. This was sold in 2019 to make the ultimate dream come true. B&B Côté Canal & Huyze Hertsberge were renamed to Barabas. Enjoy this location, spot the gem, experience the authenticity of Bruges.
