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.

A wonderful place to begin your winter holiday. Lovely tea and cocktail area for intimate or family visiting. Fantastic and I mean FANTASTIC breakfast. Attentive concierge services. Family guest room - perfect! Just the right distance from town.
Everything surpassed our expectations. People were taking photos of the outside when we arrived and were commenting how lovely the building was. We had already found out just how lovely it was and were so pleased to be staying there. Book the car park in advance, well worth it.
Enjoyed a 3 night stay at the Dukes Palace in Dec 2018. Very imposing building located a short stroll away from the main square. Room was beautifully appointed and well equipped. Staff were very helpful with booking restaurants etc.
Would normally have awarded 5 stars as we would definitely use again, but room was not ready when we arrived at 2.30. That in itself is not a problem and we were told it would be available by 3pm. However on our return just before 3.30 we were told it was still being cleaned.
Those travelling by car, the hotel has an underground car park (25Eur per night) which has wide bays and is very well lit. No lift from car park to lobby though so plan for this if you have heavy luggage.
Didn't eat at hotel, but bar area very pleasant with good service and drinks not unduly pricey. Overall, really enjoyed the Dukes Palace !
The staff was friendly and accommodating, and the rooms were spacious and well-appointed! My friends and I were given adjoining rooms which was perfect for our girls’ trip. The hotel was beautiful and historic, and ideally located within easy walking distance of the square, as well as plenty of restaurants and shops. Great parking too!
