We were welcomed by friendly hotel staff and from the start it was clear that they would offer an excellent customer experiance. The hotel itself was beautiful and the location, a stones throw from the main market and Burg square and the room window opened onto the canal that runs through Bruges. Truly perfect weekend break and the city itself... More

We were only in Bruges for a day, and stayed at the Hotel Die Swaene. The building is beautiful; the room was comfortable, including a working fireplace; and the staff was exceedingly friendly and helpful- giving directions and arranging a cab. The breakfast room was especially beautiful. In addition, the location is terrific. When we tried to book the hotel... More

Leven and staff are so friendly and helpful, they run Die Swaene like a family. Situated next to the old fish market and close to the main square, but safely away from any central square noise or crowds. Bruges is completely walkable, and this little gem of a hotel is a 15 minutes walk along the cobble stone streets from... More

We have stayed in every SLH hotel in Bruges and this one is certainly the best where we have stayed at least 10 times. On arrival The Manager has met us and parked our car then carried our luggage to our room. Sometimes a suite on the top floor or a large double on the 1st but always overlooking the... More

We have just returned from a weekend stay at die Swaene. The small quiet hotel is very centrally located on one of the busy canals. There is private off-street parking available. Our pretty room was located across the canal from the main hotel. The room was decorated with pretty antiques and had large lovely windows with a beautiful view of... More

I spent a long week end (Saturday through Monday) at the hotel Die Swaene and it was just fantastic. We stayed at the Pergola Suite which is nicely situated with a wonderful view over the canal. The staff are nice, warm, smiling and very respectful. Overall, the hotel offers this feeling of luxury without being pretentious. The room is beautifully... More

Spent two nights at this hotel which was located opposite a very picturesque canal. The staff was very welcoming and truly bent over backwards to accommodate us. Upon arrival, we were notified about a complimentary walking tour of the city that the hotel provided. The tour was fantastic and just the thing we needed to acclimate to this beautiful town....

We where told the week before we arrived that our hotel did not have a room for us and they would transfer us the Die Swaene. I was a little worried as I had not picked this hotel, however, I was very happy with the move. The service was really excellent and very welcoming when we arrived. Our room in... More

When calling to cancel our booking, we were told that we were too late. The full cost of the room would be charged, around 200 E. They added that this was company policy. They also explained that the hotel was not full. In other words, the fact that we ended up having to change our plans, did not cost them... More

We stayed there over the weekend and the experience was fantastic! the staff is lovely and very very friendly, and the rooms are the cutest most well furnished rooms we have ever stayed in! We stayed in the new building that overlooks the canal, the windows are huge in the room and add so much to the charm! We had... More
