We stayed at Die Swaene for a couple of nights in July 2012. Our room was in the annex directly across the canal. We had no problems with the short walk to the main hotel for breakfast, questions, etc. 3 minutes tops---and it's so lovely anyway that I see no reason for anyone to complain. Our room had a view of the canal/swans and was very old world decorated, yet with all the modern conveniences. Terrific bathroom and shower.
The staff were very helpful with any questions, friendly, and very happy to make our stay as wonderful and carefree as possible.
Breakfast was tremendous! A huge assortment of breads, meats, cheeses, cooked eggs, fresh juices, strong coffee, teas, etc. One of our best during our month long journey through Europe.
The location is perfect because it is a quiet street, yet near enough to the squares where we liked to be in the evening.
Bruges/Brugge itself is such an easily walkable city, and it's like a living museum. We love this city.
I would highly recommend Die Swaene for anyone wanting to visit Brugge/Bruges.
