The photos looked lovely and we weren't disappointed on arrival. What a stunning hotel. I travelled with my two daughters to celebrate my eldest's 30th birthday. They had left some fabulous Belgian chocolates on the bed for my daughter on the bed. The room was beautiful and very comfy. We were right on the canal and were lucky enough to... More

Delightful few days at this hotel. Perfect location, within easy walk and away from noise and bustle. Attention to almost all detail, but no in-room coffee/tea (although available as room service), and iffy shower arrangement. Any such minor defects well outweighed by friendly/efficient staff and abundant breakfast. Canal-view room a huge plus. Would recommend.

We had a big, well appointed room on the canal. Staff was extremely chipper. Breakfast good. Our room included a two hour walking tour with an educated enthusiastic local guide. Restaurant closed mid week but plenty of places to eat in Bruges.

This hotel is just perfect place to stay in a picturesque Brugge. Don't forget to take your camera with you, both hotel and city is worth of carrying the camera. The hotel is small and the athmosphare and decor is nice and positively different. The breakfast room is unique and the service is great. Don't forget to try the sauna... More

The Good : lovely location, excellent & friendly staff, very good breakfast. The Bad : our room was somewhat "tired" and although an upgrade to "Superior", not up to the standard on the website. The Very Unfortunate : our one night stay was ruined by extraordinarily noisy people in the room next door. When we went to bed just around... More

Stayed here with my sister for a 2 night break and I can only describe this hotel as quirky. In the reception, there are various showcases with odd exhibits which may or may not be related to the hotel. We were checked in and shown to our room via the beautiful lounge where we were advised we could sit and... More

I booked at the hotel and confirmed an air-conditioned room and the Size of 60 SQM. We received the 2 rooms and when asking about the A/C he said it is not working since 2 days and the room size was not 60SQM at all. It is my first time staying at small luxury hotel brands www.slh.com and the last... More

We opted for this hotel because of the location. We loved being on the canal, close to main plazas but just far enough away to miss the tourist noise. I loved the staff. They could not have been nicer. The gave us wonderful recommendations for restaurants where the locals are dining. Breakfast was included and was always more than lovely.... More

The location of this hotel is brilliant, and the views of the canal exceptional! The lobby and communal areas of the hotel were very impressive, and the staff extremely friendly and welcoming. The room was somewhat disappointing, as we were given two single beds pushed together instead of a double, and the toilet was separate from the bathroom in a... More

Die Swaene is the perfect historic hotel in this gorgeous ancient city. My husband and I stayed here for two nights (not long enough) in May in a Superior Deluxe Double room for 295 euros a night. We were in the "new" Pergola building across the canal from the main building. The windows in our very large, comfortable room opened... More
