Just away from the crowds but close enough to everything, great view, excellent staff and nice rooms. Stopped off by chance but would come back for sure. Receptionist a pleasure, giving us a guided tour on the way to our room. Very fun guy as well.

We had a wonderful 3 night stay at Die Swaene. Our room was on the canal and was very comfortable and very nicely decorated. Loved the small sitting area with fireplace and had great views out the window. Spacious, updated bathroom. The hotel staff were all so helpful and friendly. We took advantage of the free walking tour, which was... More

The hotel is brilliantly decorated and has a quiet and relaxing atmosphere. The room was comfortable and the service amazing. It is located in a quiet steet close to the market place and the canals. A perfect place to stay in Bruges.

Fantastic location on a quiet canal yet only a couple of minutes walk into the tourist centre. The staff are warm, helpful and welcoming. Room size is very good, charming although a little dated in places. Parking available across the canal near their restaurant. This is very close and secure. My only quibble was the bed and pillows. I did... More

What a great hotel in the heart of this charming and beautiful city. The hotel was just right to set the mood for the a step back into a time of charm and European culture. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The room was large and well equipped.

A very pleasant hotel, we would use it again. There is a convenient hotel car park just nearby. Admittedly this is the other side of a canal, but don't let this put you off, it was easy to find and closer to the front door than many hotels with car parks on site. The room we had was beautiful. It... More

We had booked this rather expensive hotel because it looked plush and comfortable. In fact there were renovation works going on which left it feeling dusty, tired and claustrophobic. Our air-conditioning leaked and the power plugs only seemed to work intermittently. We received no advance warning or discount for the fact that the the award-winning restaurant and bar were closed... More

The question is: Did the view compensate for being put in the annex on the other side of the canal above the nearly defunct restaurant reached through the car park and the service entrance? The answer is nearly. And the delightful breakfast room helped but the real clincher was Leven the Manager, Master of Ceremonies, porter, source of vital electrical... More

This hotel is in a fantastic location, a short walk from the main city centre sights but nice and quiet. The rooms are large and comfortable. We had a lovey canal view from our room. The staff are very friendly and helpful. The breakfast is relatively expensive (by UK standard) at €20, but is well worth it with plenty of... More

This is our hotel of choice when visiting Bruges. We also seem to be lucky to get the same red four poster room overlooking the canal. A very comfortable bed with quality linens and towels. The bathroom is a little dated but still more than adequate. It is located very centrally, but away from the noise of the busiest parts... More
