The hotel is situated next to the College of Europe overlooking the river and a stone throw from the interest spots of this charming city. The common areas have a special flair allowing you to have a home away from home feeling. The room are comfortable with well fitted bathrooms. The dark haired receptionist is really kind and the concierge is extremely helpful.
The right place to stay if you can accept some minor flaws existing here and there. Little flaws that mean really to the discerning Traveller.

Room Tip: Choose among all but standard room.

We stayed here for two nights, it was so nice. The breakfast is exceptional, great selection and a chocolate fountain to boot! The swimming pool was small but VERY nice, especially if you get it all to yourself with the steam room and everything. Would definitely stay again, expensive but worth it.

Welcoming medieval charm at this perfectly located hotel with stunning large room and amazing canal view. Staff helpful and courteous especially with guiding us with taxi bookings and train times. Gorgeous bar area and free wifi useful. Only down points were that we felt that 10 Euros was too much for the pool area on top of the hotel price and we didn't try breakfast as it was far too expensive. Bruges itself is breathtaking.

Room Tip: Try and get a canal view. The back is not very pretty.

The Hotel De Tuilerieen exceeded all of my expectations. One might expect to sacrifice modern comforts when staying in a hotel fashioned from a home built in the 15th Century. Not the case at Hotel De Tuilerieen. It is truly a lovely boutique hotel, each room unique and personal, and from my experience, this little gem of a hotel can compete with the best of them. The Hotel is sparkling clean, and the furnishings and fixtures are high quality but retain the charm of a period hotel. My stay was quiet and comfortable, and I enjoyed the lounge and the bar in the evening. The Hotel's breakfast is spectacular and not to be missed: freshly-made crepes, quiche, meats and cheeses, breads, eggs, fruits of all kinds, and a chocolate fountain! I had such a great experience, I will definitely return to visit Bruges and Hotel De Tuilerieen.

Room Tip: Rooms in the front of the hotel face the canal. In the back, they face the parking lot. Mine faced t...

I booked this hotel well in advance, it was meant for a nice end to my drive home through Europe from Portugal before we went to the Eurotunnel. I booked it on the basis of, it was fairly expensive and in a good location. It is around a 5 minute walk from the main square, to which you can access all parts of Bruges.

We paid 180EUR for the room, and a supplement of 25EUR for the canal view. I felt a bit disappointed if I'm honest. Reason being, we arrived a day early in Bruges and stayed in another, much cheaper hotel. We were given (randomly) a canal view room, which was literally ON the canal, we were able to feed the ducks. So being charged 25EUR for a canal view, which wasn't anywhere near as spectacular as my previous hotel, felt a little bit sour.

Paying 180EUR for the room, I expect superior quality, as with any hotel that breaches the £150+ mark. Sadly, I felt the rooms didn't match the prestigious aura the hotel were trying to achieve in my opinion. I thought they were a little rough around the edges, whether they were looking for that effect, I don't know. The hotel seemed to be the type, where everything is charged for, and what they do charge for is always a bit steeper than what you'd normally expect. 25EUR for a breakfast per person, for example, seems very expensive to me. To combat this we ate at a small french cafe which is located en route to the main square, which was lovely! (I'll try and get a review up on here).

I get the feeling that if you pay for some of the more expensive rooms in this hotel, you may get a better room. But in hindsight, I would rather spend the money on the glorious food and sights, as to be fair you are not in your room very much!

Room Tip: Canal view means; over the road, over the pavement and then you see the canal. Do not be fooled, it...
