The location and the service Quality are the two main high points of this very centrally located Small Luxury Hotel
The rooms are comfortable and spacious though the bathrooms and facilities are very dated, but because it is Brügge that somehow seems to be more in keeping and therefore less important. But i do think they are overpriced considering. A great Test of a luxury Hotel is that you actively want to Return to your rooms because it is so special. That wasnt the case with XXX although the rooms are luxurious by many Central European hotel standards
The small number of staff is compensated for by their personal service and their attention to detail although little things such as having umbrellas that guests can use seem to have been overlooked
Breakfast was Buffet style and excellent and the room was inviting with an option to sit inside or in a conservatory. Dinner is available in a restaurant that is over the small canal although still part of the Hotel. Quality was excellent, service good and a fair selection on the wine list though the prices were steep and there was nothing available by the glass
As a small luxury Hotel it is fine. Its location is excellent but i think If rooms were available at the more luxurious Duc de Bourgogne Hotel (200m always) then i would prefer to stay there as a first option.
