One absolutely wonderful stay. The hotel is in a fantastic location and has a very caring, multilingual staff. This is an upscale experience with attention to detail such as the Hermes toiletries, a free walking tour, and a travel gift bag upon check out. Yet, not pretentious and uncomfortable. Tip: If you are driving, it is a bit of a pain to find the tiny alley behind where you "park" your car. The hotel staff will then come and take your car to a nearby garage. Although ultimately convenient, I wish this had been mentioned somewhere on the web site. Driving downtown Bruges isn't a pleasant experience. :) Walking downtown however, is a very pleasant experience! What a beautiful city and a first rate hotel!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- De Orangerie Hotel is located right on the most picturesque canal of medieval Bruges in the very heart of the city centre. This small XV century monastery of the Sisters Karthuizerinnen has been converted into a wonderful "boutique hotel", furnished with exclusive fabrics (Braquenié, Pierre Frey, Bennison, Ralph Lauren), antiques, and objets d'art.All of the 20 graciously proportioned bedrooms have been individually decorated with antiques, and offer all the modern comfort that the discerning traveller expects. In the elegant lounge along the canal, guests can relax by the open fire, in comfortable sofas while going through the available art books and international magazines, and enjoying a drink which is served round the clock. The winter garden lounge with its views on the “trompe l’oeil” Italian gardens is a haven of rest and tranquillity in fresh white and light-greyish colours. It is recommended to enjoy the typical English “Afternoon Tea” or an aperitif either on the waterfront terrace or in the cozy lounge. ... more less
