Summary: very comfortable room with so many thoughtful touches. Service is excellent -- professional, friendly, and very helpful. Historic building with lovely atmosphere, superbly maintained. GREAT breakfast! Central location for shopping, touring. You won't want to leave.
We stayed 4 nights in room 302, which is pretty spacious and has two very comfortable twin beds pushed together for a king-size. View out the back of Bruges rooftops. The room is pretty spacious, with a good-sized desk and chair, 2 more sitting chairs and side table, lots of storage space in closet and cupboards.
The rooms seem individually decorated in a relaxed luxe style. Ours was a sophisticated black/white mix of some stripes, and framed prints of French chateaux. Large in-room safe and minibar.
The turn-down service also includes a weather report for the next day. One of many personal touches that make you feel that the hotel really cares about the quality of your stay at the hotel, and your visit to Bruges.
The bathroom is smallish, as in many historic buildings, but the space is comfortable and well-appointed. Good shelf space for toiletries. Deep jacuzzi tub (thank you!) and hand-held shower. Nice toiletries. Very good towels and bed linens, but also wash cloths - not always found in many European hotels.
Complimentary wifi works superbly and easily.
Excellent breakfast. A buffet of fruits and cereals is high quality and well-chosen - like someone really wants to impress important house guests. You are served a basket of excellent breads and pastries, and a plate of cheeses and meat. There are options for cooked-to-order eggs and omlettes, which were done just as requested. Fresh-squeezed juices. Champagne! (Admittedly a little too early for us, but a nice touch.) Very good coffee served in sliver service. Lovely flowers on the table in a sunlit breakfast room. Is there a better way to start the day?
The cozy bar (club chairs; leather banquettes) is a great place for drinks or tea time. The tea service comes with little cups of chocolate mousse and tea cakes -- a great way to recharge when the husband is taking a nap in the afternoon.
The lounges are a delight. While there is a real sense of history, they feel very fresh and well-maintained. Comfortable chairs and sofas are in a setting of framed historic documents, beautiful furnishings and fabrics. There are even a small pile of vintage Vuitton trunks serving as an end table for that sense of adventure!
As always: many thanks for English-language newspapers, including the International New York Times. Also: apples, umbrellas, etc. and etc. to make your stay enjoyable.
Very helpful, professional, and friendly staff. Ask their advice for restaurants, tours, cultural events, etc. They can help arrange for a photo tour for photo enthusiasts, and this is a very picturesque city, especially when you know how to look for the details.
Excellent, central location for touring Bruges, restaurants, etc.
Admittedly, this is yet another hotel that has duvets that are a little too warm for June. We asked to have it removed, and just have a top sheet, which was accommodated. Other types of blankets are also possible. HVAC is excellent, but we only use duvets in winter months.
My request is for a few more outlets in the next renovation. We all travel with more gizmos these days.
Also: some room packages come with breakfast, come with continental breakfast, some with full breakfast. This is excellent price/value no matter what you pay, but it seemed things could get confused. Ask for clarification - no one likes surprises, even if this delicious breakfast is a very good value.
I would be delighted to stay here again. Highly recommended!!
