I've stayed in hotels from the "Small Luxury Hotels of the World" group before and frankly this was the worst by a long way. When I think luxury, I think ... doorman in uniform, manned reception, restaurant and bar, beautiful rooms and bathrooms. All of these were absent. The receptionist doubles (sorry quadruples up) as the doorman, receptionist, baggage attendant... More

We recently had a three night stay at De Swaene. The hotel is centrally located beside a very picturesque stretch of canal and is divided between two buildings, one either side of the water. (The reception, breakfast room and some rooms are located on the southern side, while the Pergola restaurant and remaining rooms are opposite.) The hotel staff are... More

Visited here recently and was very impressed to begin. The lobby is lovely, as is the reception room. The room wasn't up to the same standard and for some reason was so hot that we had the air con on all the time. There is no free breakfast as advertised on trip advisor. It is 20 Euros per person per... More

Our room was a nice if a little tired( apart from the bathroom that looked new) Unfortunately the bed was two really old looking singles pushed together with old looking bedding.hard to believe they could offer this in any kind of luxury hotel.

First of all, Brugge is a 10 out of ten, a must see wonderful city. So much fun to walk around and great restaurants, churches, museums, all in a beautifully preserved medieval little town. This property is a great find, and a real treat, right on a canal with great rooms, and views. Excellent location, breakfast was top notch, and... More

My wife and I stayed here over 25 yrs ago, before we got married and always vowed to return. We have finally retuned on our silver wedding year and was so pleased to see the hotel was still in the same manner to which we had previously visited. Service is excellent, first class, rooms very ornate and spotless. I recommend... More

Poor lighting, by beds and overall. Poor shower spray. Toilet in another room from sink.swinging double doors to bath.Asked for Down pillows, they never appeared. Turn down at night but failed to pick up soiled towels. Noisy with your tour boats on canal.

We stayed here just one night whilst visiting Bruges. The staff were polite and helpful. Hotel is beautiful inside with a lovely room with piano and open fire to sit, relax and have a drink. Hotel is in a great location. Close to the burg and some beautiful views. I highly recommend this hotel, a little gem in the heart... More

The hotel is in a perfect location, just a stroll away from the main market square. We booked a deluxe room with canal view and wasn't dissapointed! With two large windows that looked out onto the canal and a separate bathroom/toilet it was very spacious. The hotel staff were very attentive, especially Melissa who couldn't do enough for us and...

Having stayed at a number of Hotels in Brugges this is the one we always return to., fretted on arrival by one of the charming and helpful,staff. Luggage immediately taken to room and car whisked away to be parked by Levan. Buffet breakfast amazing . Rooms very comfortable and most with view over canal. We will return
