Our travel agent knew this hotel and booked us into a suite in the annex across the canal from the reception and main office. The room itself was very nice and is one of the ones featured in the hotel's website. Canal boats continually paraded past the window and we joined the tour on one ourselves.
Bruges is called the Venice of the north and is absolutely one of the most beautiful cities we have ever visited. It is small, ringed and cut through with canals that are plied by water taxis. If you are going to visit - and you should - then hotel Die Swaene is right in the middle of everything and an easy walk to all you will want to see. The restaurant is very good so you do not have to go out to eat unless you just have to. The hotel staff is courteous and helpful and the hotel was easy to find in the rental car. We parked and walked everywhere the next three days it was so convenient.
Try it, you will like it too.
