Die Swaene

Certificate of Excellence
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 !

Lovely staff, great position and beautiful building. Needs some TLC urgently and a residents bar sorely needed.
A bit of a surprise when the ( very heavy) shower control fell off during a shower and please invest in some decent towels.

This was a beautiful hotel that we stayed 1 night in. The rooms have fantastic character and there was even a pool which we didn’t get a chance to use. The location is central to Bruges so it was close proximity to the centre and all the local stores. The hotel owner was a lovely

Loved our stay in this hotel with two adults and two children under the age of five. The staff were very polite and welcoming, offering their expert knowledge of the town and places to go/visit. We loved our room and the decor. The hotel has canal views and is within walking dist

Had an absolutely lovely stay. Location was perfect. Right on the canal and close to almost everything. Can’t say enough about the staff. Super helpful and spoke a variety of languages. I wished we had stayed longer.

Stay at this hotel for the location. It was perfect! Centrally located, easy to find, and walkable to everything we wanted to do.
That said, the hotel isn’t perfect. First, I reserved two rooms, one for me and one for my mother and even though we checked in after the published c

I am travelling to Crete with my dog and Bruges is the 1st stop. Are you ok with taking a well behaved dog for 1 night?
I agree with the previous response that the management can be a little funny but on our journey they were really helpful, but I didn't see any dogs there

Looking at staying end of November beginning of December. Do you have parking?
They do yes! They have a few bays in the lot across the canal. Just a 2 minute walk from the hotel. Right next to a delightful little restaurant. Sorry for the delay in answering. Didn't know travellers could post questions?!

Does your hotel have a lift?
The main hotel has a very small elevator that goes to all floors. It is a tight fit for four adults or two with luggage.

Are there any rooms that are canal side or have a canal view?
Dear Mr Raj, thank you for your request. Only the superior rooms do NOT have canal view, all the other types have view. The Pergola Deluxe rooms are actually right next to the canal and give the nicest view. One can't get closer than that to the canal. These rooms also have a fire place. If you use the tripadvisor code you'll receive 10% discount on the room rate. Hope to be able welcoming you. Tine Hessels

Hi, there are no tea making facilities in the room. Bicycles you can rent in the city.
