We booked this hotel as a special holiday (anniversary) and we were not disappointed. They gave us a free upgrade (which ended up in a second upgrade because a shower was not working) and the interior is simply stunning. Breakfast was plentiful, good bar and knowledgable staff. Hard to come up with a bad point!

While at Family Vacation we were greatly surprised but the extraordinary beautiful Hotel in Bruges that has an excellent location to take the most advantage for visiting and experiencing the City both during the day and during the night.

The rooms are spacious and clean. Breakfast is variable and good. In the heart of bruges, few walking minutes from all the shops and restaurants. Staff is very rude and not helpful and this is very bad for the hotel reputation.

The bellhop .. can't remember his name ... was enthusiastic and charming!! Our room, although grand and impressive, was a bit tired... in need of ... something. The bathroom was odd/especially the HUGE tub/shower that was awkward to...

We were blessed with a 2 night stay at Hotel Duke's Palace at the beginning of this month. It is on a quiet side street but right off the main shopping street of Bruges. There is underground parking. The entire staff was very professional and helpful. The room was a delight and very comfortable. Breakfast was outstanding---everything from smoked salmon...

Excellent atmosphere and lovely place. Perfect location to walk around the lovely city of Brugges. Parking was easy to find and right behind the building. We had a window that opened with bars (not a balcony, but like one). Loved that!

There's no better alternative accommodation in Bruges, I can absolutely guarantee that. Stunning building, beautiful interior, friendly staff, great food & drinks and much much more. Probably the best hotel I've ever been to, all it's missing is a swimming pool in its luxurious spa. Champagne and Belgian chocolate for breakfast was a great novelty. If I ever return to...

Small castle, nice room/bathroom. Very comfortable beds. Breakfast was included in our booking...not to be missed...Extravagant😊. Nice sitting area, underground parking(there was a charge for that but worth in in this area.) Fabulous health and wellness spa/exercise area.

The "family" room was great for our family of 2 adults/2 kids. Spacious layout with upstairs and downstairs beds. Bathroom is upstairs, so be prepared to walk more stairs and travel through a bedroom to get to it. Breakfast buffet was lovely--nice selection of food, fresh juices, sophisticated but friendly atmosphere. Champagne and blocks of Belgian chocolate for dessert! The...

The hotel is perfectly located in the centre of Bruges and is a stone throw away from the main Market and Burg. We booked one of their family suites and it was located in a quite separate building facing out to the garden. Very peaceful and the room with two levels provides ample room for a family of four (maybe...
