Brugge has become one of our favorite places and the Dukes palace was part of the reason why. Everything about our stay was wonderful including a comfortable room overlooking bell towers and churches. There is an old chapel you can visit in the hotel and the location is perfect. Brugge's architecture is beautiful with a mix of a river and...

This is a beautiful hotel in the heart of Bruges! The rooms are beautifully appointed with comfortable beds and pillows. Word to the wise- If you are relying on using the supplied hair dryer, don't. It is the most ineffective dryer I've ever seen. Instead, ask the front desk for a professional hairdryer! Also, take a moment to see the...

Wonderful hotel. Genuinely friendly and sweet staff. Breakfasts that go beyond any possible expectation. And a spa that is weirdly empty given how peaceful and serene it is. Honestly did not have a single negative to say about this hotel - book it now!

So I booked Duke's Palace directly through their website. It did work out slightly cheaper than booking.com and it was free to join their "Prestiege" club; meaning earlier check in time, free room upgrade. Didn't get any of that but it was very busy. I would say reception areas and bars are 5* quality but the rooms are small and...

The Dukes Palace is a 5 minute taxi ride from the train station and couldn't be in a more perfect location as far as I am concerned. On arrival the staff were so polite and friendly and couldn't have been more helpful when we checked out and asked about train times back. (Tip if you are travelling by Eurostar, get...

The food was excellent and the service second to none. They have gluten-free sausages and fabulous gluten-free pancakes. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff. Due to a recently broken ankle, every night my ankle swelled and became painful and every night housekeeping staff brought an ice pack and extra pillows. They could not be more helpful. Bravo! We...

This hotel is everything one wants for a dream vacation, a beautiful city to walk around and a fantastically charming hotel to stay. The hotel room was updated and very luxurious. The breakfast was outstanding. Couldn't ask for anything more! It's surprising that the hotel was ranked 13th. It is clearly the best!

We decided to come to Bruges for a weekend getaway and found the Dukes Palace website. We went for the Chocolicious special offer when booking the room (we never made it to the chocolate museum). We arrived late on the Friday night and were warmly welcomed at the desk. After going through everything we were then asked if we would...
