“Old world charm”
Reviewed 22 June 2014 via mobile

Charming, old world hotel. Beautiful views from the room. Elegant dining room with attentive staff and a well - appointed breakfast. I can't say enough about the atmosphere, just wonderful. Location was also just great. On the canal, in the middle of everything, but inside...it was serene. It is like many older hotels in Europe without a lift and a "tub only" bathroom, but that did not detract from the experience, I only felt it should be mentioned. I will go back here again, I hope soon.

It's a Wow Hotel! The Best in Bruges. My husband and I arrived late in the evening from our Amsterdam day trip from Brussels, the staff waited for us.The restaurant was closed when we arrived but Ms. Christine gave some snacks which was essential to my husband health and medication. I would also like to express my appreciation of the service given by Tina and Christine and the most pleasant personalities. Certainly, I hope to see you all again.

Room Tip: The Canal View Room.

This lovely hotel on a canal in Bruge in the middle of the medieval town is a gem. Sightseers passing by whip out their cameras to photograph it's beautiful facade. The room is spacious if a bit tired. Staff is friendly and helpful.
Would be delighted to return.

Fantastic position best in Brugge. Carpet at least 200 years old and smells likens it too. Shower worst in 8 weeks holiday in Europe hot-cold all the time. $14 for 700mm water, restaurant food just average for its reputation and price... Better restaurant everywhere. You carry your own luggage upstairs. All staff are super friendly except for grumpy boss. No tea or coffee in room. They tell you you have WiFi in your room but it is only available in lounge area. I would tell friends they should experience this hotel but I would find somewhere else next time. Position and history is its biggest score.

Although we arrived late from Amsterdam, the staff waited for us. We had a canal view which was absolutely stunning...both at night and during the day! I've read some reviews that say the hotel is "shabby." We thought the hotel's appearances matched its location in an older part of the city....and loved the ambience. Our bed was fine; the bathroom was clean and convenient. The breakfast itself was wonderful, delicious, and more than filling. The loveliness of the dining room made the breakfast an event itself. The staff was very helpful during our stay. We would stay there again without hesitation.

I stayed here weekend just gone with 2 other couples. We had 3 rooms, 2 x deluxe and one suite for 2 people. All were not very clean and the suite had thick dust, carpet very,very badly stained, sheets were blood stained from previous customers and bathroom was dirty. One of the deluxe rooms was awful and the couple were upset, very poor standard indeed. We were all disappointed and spoke to the manageress. She was not very helpful but did get sheets changed and dust removed from parts of the room. She said it was out of her hands as owner was never there, she was the manager so should have been able to help more. Up side restaurant was nice and food ok and nice view if you have canal room. All very disappointed and would not go back there. Much better hotels as been to Belgium 4 times.

Room Tip: Go elsewhere!!!

The staff at the Duc de Bourgogne were wonderfully helpful and pleasant, which made the stay quite nice, but the uncomfortable bed made for long nights. We stayed for three nights in February and low-season meant that the price was very reasonable - particularly as it included breakfast in the restaurant overlooking the canal.

The wifi was a bit spotty, but the front desk staff was quick to reboot the router and remedy the problem when notified that it was out.

While the bed was awful and the ensuite had seen better days, the Duc de Bourgogne won us over with location, breakfast, charm, and staff.
