Can anyone recommend a "Special" Hotel in Bruges

My wife and I are thinking of taking a trip for a long weekend on the Eurostar to Bruges (first flying from NYC).

Are there any hotels that are above the standard tourist cut? Fluffy white duvets instead of bedspreads. Modern design touches or traditional character. It can't be like business hotel or a holiday inn. More boutique. Low key. Im really not concerned with price.

Are you aware all the hotels are reviewed already (on the left)? Easy enough to check if they are business or boutique.

We live in Bruges and the nicest hotel here is 'Die swaene', it is a verry romantic hotel, but it is expensive....

http://www.huyzehertsberge.be/index.html and her sister B & B, the Cote Canal are both delightful and very special! They are charming and located along the canal and in easy walking distance of all attractions.

And you couldn't ask for a better hostess. Carolyn is so warm and welcoming. We wouldn't stay anywhere else.

The Hotel De Tuilerieen I found is stunning, with individual rooms, great service.

Another in the Small Luxury Hotel of the World group

When I travel to Bruges and want something special, I stay at Die swaene. Note that it has a superb restaurant.

not sure where all de swaene fans have appeared from all of a sudden...i don't rate it for comfort or for service but then each to their own

there is only one top notch hotel in bruges and that is the kempinski 5*. far aobove the others in services and quality. nice spa, poll, garden bar and restaurant

de tuilerieen is generally acknowledged as the next best offering. stylish with modern touches and good service

I would checkout Cote Canal B&B. Lovely B&B much cheaper than hotels, right on a canal and huge rooms. Carolyn runs the place and is wonderful.

Try De Triptiek! More guesthouse than hotel, they only have three rooms. Lovely owners (Joel and Jacques from France) and the flemish style contemporary interior makes you feel as if you really are staying in Bruges rather than an anonymous chain hotel. We only stayed one night but think it would definitely fit your bill. 145 euros per night for the suite and you can spend the extra you have saved by not staying in a hotel on a bottle of champagne!
