About Katalin Szoke

Hello! I'm Katalin, living in Bruges, in this beautiful medieval gem of Belgium. We often travel to my home, Hungary or to other countries and we are often in Amsterdam as well. I'm a landscape architect, so I'm a nature and flower-freak :) I like to get to know new places and cultures through a local's eyes: this is the best way to get the feeling of a foreign city. Last year we decided to start a unique project in our 170 years old house, Suite 51, with 2 design suites with special design-themes. We would like to host our guests in our beautiful city while they can feel like in a friendly 5 star hotel luxury during their stay. Experience Bruges - in our way! ;)

Katalin Szoke purchased this apartment in 2008

Why Katalin Szoke chose Bruges (Brugge)

Although we are not original 'Bruggelingen,' we fell in love with this old house on our first trip to the city of Bruges. We invested years of energy, enthusiasm and ideas to save the historic building, which at the time was starting to decay. We created Suites51 and gave this house back its original shine from the outside, while filling it with modern luxury and charm on the inside. We would like to share our home with you and show how you can you enjoy fairytale Bruges in a different way, in our way! Let us introduce ourselves and show you how our SUITES51 PROJECT evolved.

Beautiful Brugge

  • 5 of 5

Katalin was absolutely wonderful and couldn't have been more accomodating throughout our stay.

The apartment was perfect, spacious, charming and in a perfect location close to the old town.

We were so happy and felt so comfortable there.

All in all everything was incredible and one of our best experiences. We will love to return one day.

Beautiful apartment in historic meighborhood within a short walk to the center of Bruge.

  • 5 of 5

We were very satisfied with our stay. The neighborhood is classic Bruges - with mostly well kept historic townhouses lining both sides of the narrow street. The unit is newly renovated with high end materials. The location is ideal. The back deck/garden would have been a joy to use if it hadn't rained during our stay. There is a convenience store around the block for immediate needs and the owner stocks the refrigerator with moderately priced drinks/water - which we appreciated. We made tea and coffee free of charge. Internet connectivity was good.

Perfect accommodations!

  • 5 of 5

This place was fantastic. A quiet neighborhood just a few minutes walk to the center of town and so pleasant! Interior was clean, comfortable, and exceeded our expectations. Beds were very comfortable, kitchen was well stocked for our needs, coffee, tea, microwave, coffee maker, etc. LOVED the specific instructions on the kitchen wall how to operate everything. Nothing is worse than being in a strange place suffering jet lag and can't figure out how to make coffee! The balcony was a delight with the view of Brugge rooftops and skyline. We sat out under the stars and watched the film "In Brugge" on a laptop after sightseeing the same spots all day. We are runners so we literally ran out the door a couple of mornings and ran around the city. We took a bike tour and the tour went through many beautiful neighborhoods including right past our door! We were a few minutes walk from the windmills, too. Loved all the special things like slippers in the hall, umbrella by the door, light fragrance throughout the apartment, very clean and contemporary. Also appreciated the large comfortable couch with pull out extension for lounging and watching TV after walking all day. The bedroom arrangements were excellent with one upstairs and one down. Plenty of privacy for 2 couples. Katelin was very quick to respond and really appreciated her specific instructions on how to get in and even drop off our luggage before actual check-in. I hope to stay here again next visit and would absolutely give a top notch recommendation!

Great accomodation and location

  • 4 of 5

A true gem in Bruges.

All rooms very much like the photos. All done to a high standard of decor.

Also a great outdoor space to use for breakfast or for an evening drink.

Katalin was very helpful in pointing out the local areas and shops.

Amazing Suite walking distance to Market Square

  • 5 of 5

By far the best apartment we stayed in throughout our 10day trip to Europe. Immaculately decorated, beautiful terrace/deck, and fully stocked with all necessary essentials including a wet bar with reasonable prices. Short walking distance to local bakery and reasonable walk to Market Square about 1 mile or less. Brugges is very strict with parking so be sure to know the parking restrictions etc. Katalin was great. We would recommend to anyone and will definitely stay again if we travel to Brugges.

Great place to stay in Bruges

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful home base Katalin has made for travelers to Bruges! The apartment is super-clean, charming and nicely decorated. The deck is perfect for jet-lag naps and on a rainy morning, umbrellas were at the ready at our door. Located close to the Markt, good grocery and many excellent restaurants make this Suites 51 a home away from home. Katalin was the perfect hostess...we highly recommend this apartment on your next trip to Bruges.
