“Historic Charm”
Reviewed September 23, 2013

This hotel is a charming cluster of canal houses elegantly melded into a luxury hotel without sacrificing the historic charm. Our room was cozy and elegant, the public spaces are beautiful and the staff is simply amazing. The hotel offers a free daily walking tour at 2:20.

Situation in the heart of the historic district, it is ideally placed for exploring Bruges by foot.

A charming small luxury hotel with very warm and friendly staff. Great breakfast at dining room. Ambience cosy surrounded by authentic art and historical verve - both the library and dining rooms.
Our luxury room was well appointed, though small and at ground level, one can open the door and walk out to the street.
The bath wash basin area was really tight.
But overall we had a very comfortable stay and was given a farewell present nicely packed in their signature colour - orange!

Its like you are living in a fairytale house. Small and cozy with different decoration in each room, small but fresh and good breakfast, very polite and friendly staff, close to everything. Have a drink at night in the small common area next to the fire place, it feels like you are in a house living room. I would definately recoment that hotel.

Room Tip: Buy some chocolates and biscuits from the small shops around the hotel!

This hotel is full of character. The staff very friendly and helpful. The location is perfect- central for exploring Bruges and within walking distance of the train station. Breakfast and other light meals available through the day are all very good and tea on the terrace is superb. Our room was very comfortable and overall the hotel clean.

It's my second time that I visit this hotel, and I must say: it's the best!

The luxury room is nice, spacious and with hermès products!!
English afternoon tea on the terrace with a glass of champagne makes you feel home.

I will be back!!!

It was now I think the 3th time that we spent a weekend and this lovely hotel. Every time we went we stayed in another well decorated and romantic room. The service is really excellent, the reception staff is very friendly - again the restaurants that they suggested were great.
As the weather conditions were very good, we had the occasion to eat are breakfast at the Canal site. Hope returning soon!
