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
My room was on the top floor, and they were sloped, like a room in your attic, same in the bathroom s caused shower to wet floor. Elevator noise keep us up all night. Plush carpet in room from the 1970's. I give a review before I checked out and the staff was very mad but did not offer to compensate me on the 300 dollar a night room. The hotel was in center of city and the breakfast was very good. Not worth the price,
Excellent hotel location with easy access to the main historic attractions. Very courteous staff, determined to meet customer needs. The rooms are beautiful, with comfortable beds, large shower and nice amenities. Ample parking on site. Great breakfast...with a chocolate bar!
The only thing odd about our stay is that when we made restaurant reservations, we were asked if it was for a special occasion...which it was. Unfortunately during our dining experience there was no mention of it. I expected a glass of champagne or perhaps a special dessert. So why ask?
Disappointed place for a 5 stars hotel. We chose this hotel for our anniversary. The reception promised for a surprise arrangement. Yes, it‘s a surprise, NOTHING!!! The hospitality here definitely not 5, best is 4 stars, not more. DISAPPOINTED ☹️
