Hotel Die Swaene

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

This hotel has some much character that everywhere you look there is something different to see. The room itself was spacious, had large enough bathroom with two sinks and some nice toiletries and a comfy bed. Dressing Gowns and slippers were also provided which we found handy did when we visited the pool. The indoor pool was lovely and the whole room was given a tropical feel. One of the nicest features of this hotel was the classic style living room with its impressive fire place and seating and although were only in here for a night we made a point of going in there a few times. We found the staff here to also be very nice and accommodating, they also had a good knowledge of the area and told us some nice places to visit within walking distance of the hotel. If I was to come to Bruges again I would definitely consider this hotel again as it was in a good location for all the attractions and a lovely place to stay

This hotel reminds me of the movie "the grand Budapest hotel". Old carpets, art, statues, mirrors and ballrooms all around. The room was big (should be for the price) and good (slanted ceiling made showering difficult for a tall person like me) and the beds oke. Breakfast was decent and staff very friendly.

Nice, central and atmospheric hotel in central part of Bruges but in a quieter corner by the Visjmarket (Fishmarket). Rooms by the picturesque Canal. Really nice and polite staff and clean rather big rooms. Wifi in the Pergola building does not work. Breakfast is a robbery at 25 € per person. Othetwise nice hotel

We found this nice little hotel on whilst on the Chunnel looking for a stopover en route to Southern Germany. About an hour from the tunnel and unusually for Bruges city centre hotels with its own parking ( less than 50m from the hotel). Despite ringing at 9pm they rustled up a room to meet our requirements by the time we arrived and directed us the short walk into the city, advising to eat on the streets off the main square as much cheaper. As it was Bruges by 11 isn't really a place to get food and so we did eat on the square, but it was good food reasonably priced. The following morning we retraced our steps back into the town to see the City by day and as less than 10 minutes on foot it really was fabulously located, even offering up a small market on the way back! Only draw backs, the hotel is very old and our room was up precarious stairs that simply wouldn't have been viable for many and definitely not carrying a bag.

We stayed a couple of nights to celebrate our anniversary. Location very convenient ,good & picturesque with a bonus of being very quiet. However it was expensive & it was 'tired'. It needs to be up dated & the carpet in our room was very stained & dirty. We were in the annexe & the wi fi was intermittent. No tea/ coffee making in room. The breakfast was good and in a lovely dining room in the main hotel. No dining is offered, but there are a lot of very good in Bruges to choose from & walkable. All in all very disappointing for the cost of the stay.

We had a comfortable room on the canal side in the older, non-annex portion of the property. The room was comfortable and had a very bright and functional bathroom with a very good shower along with a separate WC. There is a large sitting room on the 1st floor with period furnishings in a Belgian/French style, similar to what is in the rooms. The sitting/gathering room is seldom used or at least was not during our two-night stay. The breakfast room is bright and the breakfasts were well done. An omelet ordered was delivered very quickly and we found a very nice range of options for the breakfast. The location of the hotel could not be better. It is quite close to very good restaurants (Park Restaurant and Duc du Bourgogne), the Stadhuis and Basilica and the Markt. It also is also offset from the crowds. The staff is very good. Anna is about as nice and helpful as anyone in her position could be. She helped make a reservation and arranged a table at Duc du Bourgogne that we very much enjoyed. She also arranged for ice for my wife's swollen ankle and helped tend to her. Anna is a gem.

Drab. Not a luxury hotel by any means. Facilities promised in my booking confirmation included: 1. Cable channels - which were absent; no English language news channels at all; 2. "Fruit in room" - as this claims to be a luxury hotel, I imagined some grapes, a few strawberries, perhaps something exotic. In fact - only what the photo shows. 3. Toilet paper - this was indeed supplied. What a relief as I'd forgotten to pack any! The duty manager who seems to work mornings would benefit from a training course on handling complaints: she has a significant anger-management problem. The hotel's position is good, close to the centre of Bruges, but the Crown Plaza is even closer. I wish we'd stayed there.

This hotel is in a great position, very near to the main square but just cleverly a few streets away from the throngs of people. Fronts on to the canal for a lovely start to each day walking out into town. The room was great fun - not impeccably appointed - but that really didn't detract from a brilliant atmosphere. We were very well looked after by the staff and had a lovely stay. A real must if you want central but not noisy or too busy.

Located in quiet area next to the canal and short walk to all attrctions. Expensive, and breakfast should have been included. However, plenty of places to eat around. Nice small swimming pool / relax area, but no shallow area. Open until 23.00 and useful after a long day of ealking Disignated times for children in the pool would have been preferred.

Room was enchanting, gas fireplace and all. Very clean and well appointed. Perfect location in the center of town. It's a pleasant 20 minute walk from the train station. Service is friendly and very informative.
