The luxurious Grand Hotel Casselbergh was created out of three historical residences of centuries’ worth of leading citizens and local aristocracy. Originally known as Casselbergh, Zeven Torens, and Fransch Schildt, they retrain the elegance of their genteel age, and have been complemented by a new wing in the rear. The 118 rooms combine modern conveniences with the 18th-century charm of Bruges. Breakfast is an inviting continental buffet—or it’s served in your room if you’ve found the ambience too romantic to get up—and in the evening the scene moves to the hotel bar, which has a variety of Belgian beers on tap and other spirits to get things flowing before guests head out to some of Bruges’ top restaurants, as recommended by the concierge.
In the Area
One of Belgium’s (if not Europe’s) most beautiful cities, the medieval city of Bruges positively drips with magic and romance. The well-preserved city center of this “Venice of the North,” as it is known, has earned a UNESCO designation. Historium Bruges allows guests to visit a re-creation of medieval times—and now sells tickets that include a tasting of Belgian beers. Bruges Ballooning offers aerial tours over the city in its modern-day incarnation. Further afield, the steamship Lamme Goedzak takes guests on a half-hour cruise to the charming village of Damme.
How to Get There
We stayed in a canal view room for a few nights. I would definitely not stay here again due to the following reasons: the room was extremely dusty and We just could not stop sneezing. Even the drink bottles in the fridge were covered in dust. The toiletries provided is cheap. The shower gel is horrible. The room is also dated. There were drunken people screaming their heads off by the canal until the early hours in the morning so we did not get any sleep. There is no baby changing facilities in the hotel which I find very strange. The price on booking. Com was not what the hotel asked for at check out! It was much more, although the room was booked last minute and the exchange rate had not changed much at the time of booking. There were a couple of positives about this hotel. Location is great as it's very central. The car park is underground and very convenient. Staff are professional. Breakfast was average but they do provide fresh juices. The toaster didn't work properly and it took a long time to toast bread. Overall I would say this is a 3 * hotel and not 4.
Having just returned from a weekend break in Bruges staying at this hotel I felt the need to leave a review as our stay at this hotel was faultless.
I emailed ahead as it was my partners birthday to see if there was anything I could do to make it more memorable and on arrival was upgraded to the older/historic part of the hotel and a lovely room.
The hotel has a huge amount of character and the staff are all very friendly.
Breakfast had a excellent choice and was very nice!
Location is perfect with easy walking to any attraction around the city.
Would definitely stay here again and recommend it to others.
We were a group of 20 booked in for a weekend. The staff were very well prepared, getting everyone checked in was easy. The hotel is beautiful and the lounges delightful. The rooms and bathrooms were all lovely and spacious with everything needed for a very comfortable stay. A very decent breakfast in the morning topped off a wonderful stay. Great location, would highly recommend.
Had booked this via a deal with an agent and arrived to find it centrally located for discovering Bruges from on foot. The hotel would appear to consist of a new and a very old parts. We were fortunate enough to stay in an executive room in the old part (Rm 1106). Room was beautiful with chandelier and a super large bed, which was exceedingly comfortable. The breakfast at the hotel covered a large range of quality items. Service from all the staff was always very helpful and friendly. If I went back to this city I would definitely look to go back here.
We stayed here for two nights and really did like it very clean comfortable and all round good hotel. Would recommend also it’s very central to main attractions etc rooms were cleaned very well while we were here for our stay and the hotel staff were very helpful when asking questions
