stayed here for a couple of days break after Xmas. The hotel is in a gorgeous spot on the banks of one of the rivers running through central Bruges a very short walk from the main square. Rooms were a little tired. An absolutely outstanding welcome from the front desk team . Internal staircase quirky to say the least but... More

Our stay was in the run up to Christmas. We were greeted by a friendly and informative reception staff. He gave us a brief review of Bruges main sites and marked them on an A4 map of the central area. The hotel is sited in a Unesco world heritage area so is right next to some of the main sites....

Unfortunately, we spent only one night at this lovely old hotel. The canal setting is beautiful and close to the historic part of the city. We were traveling with another couple and we both felt like our rooms were fine. However, if you are looking for a luxurious room, this hotel might not be your best choice. We love seeking... More

We stayed here for three nights over the New Year. The hotel location is fabulous, right in the centre of historic Bruges. It is literally a minute or two on foot from the Markt, and fronts onto a canal just by the Fish Market. The Swanne is a very old building with sumptuous, if slightly faded, decoration and furnishings. The... More

We have been travelling Europe For 5 weeks and have been in a lot of low budget accommodation. Due to the theft of expensive electronic gear and our wallets we decided to treat ourselves in Brugges. Die Swaene did not disappoint. Our room was large and we paid a little extra for a canal room. €€ well spent. Breathtaking. Breakfast... More

We selected this hotel for its gorgeous rooms pictured in various sites, ready to stretch ourselves a bit for some Christmassy treat. I thought at 185 GBP, we should have something more than decent. The lobby was raising my hopes. Nice and warm welcome and nice deco. On our way to our room, I noticed the thick carpet in the... More

This old hotel is nice but with a couple of odd quirks. On arrival the manager immediately had to go and park someone's car, telling us we would have to wait ten minutes until he got back. Was not the best reception, and it seems a shame not to have a second member of staff on in the evening to... More

This hotel is in a lovely location, but we were disappointed when we checked in and didn't get the room we booked. Once we informed the girl that we booked (and paid for) a canal view room, she offered us complimentary breakfast...which wasn't worth it. The staff was very friendly and the experience wasn't bad...but it's not worth the money... More

This hotel has had its best days.The website shows lovely photos of luxury and romantic rooms. Our junior suite was worn out,dusty and needed renovation.The beds are old not to say dirty, there was not one electric socket that you could use properly,the bathrobes were once white but they turned grey over the years and looked as if they were...
