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

My title was selected based on how we were greater by the staff when we first entered the hotel. It was like seeing family again. This feeling was continued by everyone we came in contact with who worked at the hotel. The employees working on the day we left even came to the entrance to wish a farewell. The rooms... More

We stayed here for a weekend with friends. On arrival, we had a fabulous meal on the terrace of the hotel restaurant with lovely views of the picturesque canal. We stayed in one of the newer rooms on the same side as the restaurant, on the opposite side of the canal to the main hotel where our friends stayed. This... More

I concur with much that others have written - a lovely location and charming staff. We were in the old building so cannot comment on the new rooms. Our room was in keeping with much of the rest of the building's old style and feel. I do not agree the rooms are "tired" as some have said - the one... More

I have given it four stars when I really wanted to give it 3.5. The location of the hotel is undeniably superb. It overlooks a canal and is 2 minutes walk to all the shops and restaurants you could wish for. Bruges itself is definitely worth a visit. The hotel itself offers free parking (on the Pergola side), has an... More
