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... More

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... More

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.

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... More

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... More

In late June we stayed four nights at Die Swaene, an old boutique hotel which fronts on a canal and is just steps from multiple large squares, shops and restaurants in the center of Bruges.

Great little oasis in a busy tourist town. Treated like royalty. Loved the staff. We were greeted warmly and provided a tour of the hotel. Such a nice welcome.

We stayed in the Die Swaene hotel for 2 nights in September and were very impressed. Our room (72) was in the annexe across the canal from the main hotel building. It was not very large, but was luxuriously furnished, and had a fantastic bathroom, although care was needed in the shower not to spray water over the floor. It... More

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
