A former royal residence and now a rambling country-house-style hotel, the Dukes’ Palace has 69 rooms and 25 suites, all of them unique in their combinations of contemporary comforts (24-hour room service, high-speed Internet) and authentic 15th-century elegance (stained glass windows, elaborate crown moldings). Along with a serviceable restaurant and bar, the hotel has one of the most extensive spas in Bruges, with a sauna, hammam, indoor swimming pool, and fitness center, and a variety of body scrubs and wraps, therapeutic massages, and facials.
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
Everything is just perfect. Very friendly staff, rooms and bathrooms are nice, big and very clean. Breakfast is perfect with a lot of choise. Dinner was delicious. For us, no negative points. We will come back.
Fantastic hotel!! Great location, excellent staff and service.
We stayed for 2 nights. The rooms are a good size, clean and very quiet.
The bar area and gardens are lovely. After a busy morning seeing the sights and canals it was lovely to sit in the quiet gardens of the hotel and enjoy a glass of wine in the sunshine.
Would not hesitate to highly recommend this hotel.
Our family stayed here for a few days and were very happy.
The hotel is a beautiful old building in a great location near Market Square, and we were in an amazing old section of the hotel adjacent the old chapel.
It was also very convenient the hotel has parking facilities, which allowed us to do a day trip to Ostend one day.
The staff were very friendly, and especially one of the waitresses at breakfast was great with our kids.
Food at breakfast was very good, and we also ate at the restaurant one evening and the food was excellent.
We were especially happy with the lovely back garden which was perfect for our kids to play in for a few hours of the summer evening.
This hotel is absolutely gorgeous in the beautiful town of Brugge! Excellent location close to all the main sites, beautiful lobby and lounge areas, tasteful and roomy guest rooms and excellent breakfast buffet! All this at a very reasonable price. Well worth the stay!
