I arrived at the hotel late one night, and I was baffled that I couldn’t find the hotel entrance. There’s a huge, beautiful sign on one side of the canal with the hotel’s name. Behind the sign is a parking lot for the hotel. However, the hotel entrance just wasn’t obvious. I walked around the block repeatedly for one full...

Dear Madam, thank your for writing this review and we are glad to read you enjoyed your stay. I suppose you must have arrived after dark and therefore had trouble finding the main building. Your room was in the annex, across the canal but the advantage of this is that your view over the canal and historical centre is fenominal....

Absolutely wonderful hotel due to its location, helpful staff and comfortable rooms. We stayed in the Pergola super deluxe suite and loved it.. However guests should be aware of the following to avoid some small disappointments: the big bed is actually two singles pushed together, and you need to ask reception to make the bed with large sheets it you...

Small and chick hotel very close to everything. Staff were very helpful, gave us a quick tour of the hotel and facilities, unfortunately we had no time to use the pool or sauna. The rooms are super clean and beautiful and the breakfast is just the best. I know everyone is praising the food, yes, it is that good! Get...

As we were traveling in early January and were not actually sure when we would arrive in Bruges we had not made any reservations. We had originally planned to see if we could stay at Martin's Orangerie where we had stayed about 18 months prior. They were closing for renovations the following day. We opted not to stay since the...

We stayed for one night at this lovely boutique hotel and we definitely plan to come back! A beautiful and unique hotel, greatly placed just in the historical centre, yet extremely peaceful. One small tip: do try their breakfast, it's worth every penny!

Charming and fantastic bed in breakfast in the heart of historic Brugge. I recently stayed her and had the most fantastic experience. The hotel staff are incredibly friendly and helpful. They speak English, French, Dutch and German that I heard. There's a great hotel entrance with comfortable velvet chairs for lounging in. Upstairs is a romantic drawing room with soaring...

In 2001. we received as a wedding gift a voucher for a stay in this hotel, including dinner and breakfast. There was no expiration date written on the voucher so I assumed that the voucher would be valid for a long period of time. A few years ago, I called the hotel to ask how long the voucher was actually...

We thoroughly enjoyed our three night stay in Die Swaene. From the cold outside you step into a warm, welcoming, beautifully furnished reception lounge which sets the tone for the stay. Our bedroom was large and had several antique features, such as the old fireplace and a four poster bed which was quite a 'piece'! It was a very attractively...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Hotel Die Swaene**** is a sanctuary overlooking one of the most picturesque canals, right at the very heart of the old historical city center and just a stone-throw away from the Market and Burg square. This prize-winning hotel is considered to be one of the most romantic and peaceful boutique hotels in Europe and is renown for its customer-friendliness and excellent service. Quite a unicum in this age of 'time is money' but here one still finds time to listen to the needs of the guest. Die Swaene**** has 24 elegantly furnished and individually decorated rooms and the public rooms have an atmosphere of times past. The authentic salon "Guild of Merchant Taylors" (1779) is classified heritage and a perfect place to relax by the fire-place after a day of exploring the beautiful city. Or do you prefer to take an aperitif in the cozy bar or have a plunge in the swimming pool with sauna? Its all possible in Die Swaene. At the opposite side of the canal one finds the "Pergola" wing with 8 Superior Deluxe rooms, each with fire-place in the room and view over the water. From Monday to Friday we offer a free guided tour with an English speaking guide. Die Swaene**** has everything to make your visit unforgettable ! ... more   less
