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

Ask for a room with a rive view in the building opposite the hotel. Maybe one of the cosiest rooms we've ever had. It was Christmas, with a fireplace burning in the room with Christmas lights glistening in the river through the window of our large room. Have booked again this Christmas for two nights.

Forgot to write a review for this hotel. Stayed here last spring and had the most wonderful stay. We were offered this hotel as the hot water was not working in hotel de tulireen. Definitely of the same standard of hotel. Beautiful view of the canal. Comfy bed, shame it was two singles pushed together, but other than that no... More

Bruges is truthfully a unique medieval town and Die Swaene is a wonderful place to experience it all. Its location along one of the canals is simply charming. We had a room facing the canal in another building from the reception (hotel has two buildings the canal separating them). Some reviewers have mentioned the rooms being shabby - ours definitely...

If you want a Marriott go elsewhere, this is Europe. However, this is not a USA 5 stars either, but it is charming and had character. Layout: two separated buildings across the canal from each other. Main building had lounge and breakfast, 2nd building has a Resturant. Not sure but about 10 rooms in each building. I stayed in room... More

Superb accommodation in the best location in centre of Bruges. Thank you Tine for your wonderful hospitality. We loved the "New York" bijou Moroccan style apartment, well equipped and comfortable bed. Lovely garden outside to relax and enjoy a coffee. Highly recommended!

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
