This beautiful hotel is unique in that it retains so many original features and furnishings. It is like an oasis coming through the front door to be greeted by the friendly staff. The reception area is dreamy making you feel that you should be walking through the door 200 years ago. Although Initially I thought the breakfast was extremely expensive, after eating out at other cafes/restaurants I believe it is on a par with most other places. Bruges is extremely expensive, particularly for food. Most meals are about 25 euros at reasonably average restaurants. The rooms are quaint and more than adequately furnished with lovely antiques. Comfortable beds too.
- 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
