Spent lovely few days in this very plush hotel in centre of Brugge. Very nice rooms and brilliant breakfast with champagne and chocolate.......delicious. Friendly staff and lovely bar area where we had delicious mojitos!! Location is ideal right near the markt. Added bonus was the elegant spa. Overall would recommend and definitely go back.

Good hotel that was originally a 15th century Dukes residence. The hotel has a great location in the centre of Bruges, close to Markt square and walking distance to all the attractions. Stayed in a standard twin room which was large enough, comfy, clean and well appointed. The hotel staff were friendly and helpful. We also took advantage of the... More

This beautiful hotel is perfectly situated in the center of Bruges, walking distance to everything. It's an amazingly beautiful hotel with a great staff. I chose Bruges to propose to my girlfriend (now my fiancee), and I couldn't find a more romantic place than behind the hotel after sunset. We had drinks on hand and the whole place to ourselves....

This hotel is perfect in every way, from the taxi that we took from the station, the friendly Indonesian driver who's sister works on reception to the check in experience to the superb room and the friendly bar and restaurant staff. The room, well equipped with UF heated bathroom was the quietest ever... Like sleeping in an anechoic chamber! Breakfast... More

This was a friendly hotel situated very conveniently near the Centre. The room (a twin) was comfortable and well appointed with coffee, wifi etc. It has a spa which was clean and very pleasant (but no pool). The only criticisms were the price and lift was slow. We enjoyed our stay and would go again.

This was a magnificent example of what a hotel should be. Excellent and friendly service, beautifully appointed room, all in an historic setting. Add excellent food, and put it all into a truly wonderful city, and the result is magical. What a great experience!

The hotel is a beautifully restored medieval palace. The rooms are immaculate and the service is excellent. Breakfast includes freshly squeezed orange juice, smoked salmon, sparkling wine and chocolate! The bar is reasonably priced and has an outside terrace next to a very well maintained garden. The hotel is 5 minutes walk from the main square in the city centre.... More

This hotel is slightly less than one mile from train station, however, in the rain, a taxi is a better idea than walking, especially with the large road construction on the Street in front of hotel. But the Bruges train station taxi stand is not covered, and Taxis are few and far between arrivals at station, so you will get... More
