“Pure Luxury”
Reviewed 5 November 2012

A palace from outside with luxurious rooms inside. In a fantastic location, minutes from the shops and main Market Square. The Bar is fabulous, small and secluded, with a comforting feel to it, yet thriving with life. The rooms are well laid out with fantastic beds and great bathrooms. Having visits for many years now, the only real complaint would be the turn a round in staff and poor attention from the waiting staff at breakfast. However, if you want to make your stay in Bruges one to remember, stay here as it does make you feel just that little bit more "special".

Room Tip: They are all good. Don't choose a "cheaper" option if you might need to cancel, they w...

We stayed here for my 50th birthday it was a lovely experience especially the champagne breakfast we had on the morning of my birthday . if there was one thing that i could say that spoilt it was the fact that on booking my husband mentioned that it was his wifes special birthday thinking that perharps as a nice gesture the hotel may of left a bowl of fruit or even the offer of a free drink at the bar . Well dont get too execited nothing was done my husband even mentioned it to a female member of staff the night before . On returningafter a lovely day out on my actually birthday we returned to our room to find a flimsey photocopied piece of paper with birthday greeting from the hotel signed from the manager. Wow why bother if this is all a five star hotel has to offer .

We got upgraded to two-level suite 301 with a huge terrace,2 bathrooms and large closet. Main bathroom is equiped with heated floor, many towels and luxury toiletries. Fabulous comfortable beds and light, airy " room ". Becouse of great location (walking distance to the main Markt Square in Brugge) and many restaurants around we didn't eat at the hotel even breakfast. We spent here only one night and was a little to cold but Overall we enjoyed the hotel.

This is our second time in Brugge, we were driven from Ghent to Brugge by chauffeur Brussels. The hotel is located at the end of a small lane near the main square of Brugge city. We had a superior double room well equipped with modern but regal feeling with a view of the 3 cathedrals, Belfry Tower towering over the city square, Spire of Church of our lady and the Tower of Saint Salvador. The bathroom had underfloor heating and the beds were so comfortable it was quite difficult to get out of bed in the mornings.
We enjoyed the manuscript restaurant it had a unique appeal the food was delicious the atmosphere very romantic and relaxing the staff were very professional and helpful with the menu, we wanted to have dinner the next night (Sunday) at the restaurant but found out it was closed We also loved the Bar Atelier their lunch (nice, quiet and peaceful) the evening pre-dinner drinks, cocktails, wines and beers we enjoyed very much. We found Brugge a bit touristy it was best to head back to the hotel after sight-seeing and enjoy the comforts and good food.
Duke’s Palace is in a great location in the city everything is within walking distance, to the market square surrounded by 100’s of gift shops, restaurants, horse drawn carriage rides, variety of delicious Belgian chocolate shops choices are endless, lace shops, 200’s or more of Belgian beers to sample, wiff of the Belgian waffle topped with cream, the 15 century Belfry tower hovering over the sky, the gilded Basilica of the Holly Blood in Burg Square and the boat rides along the canals.
We walked the whole city and we loved it, we loved walking along the river in Minnewater Park seeing the swans, ducks and birds swimming and pampering themselves, the horses pulling carts and pirouetting on cobbled stone roads with tourists drenched and under heavy blankets. Cruise boats crisscrossing along the canal with beautiful drops of arched stone bridges.
We enjoyed our stay very much, the staff during our stay did their utmost to make us feel at home, we had problems with our phone line and wi-fi but that was taken care of immediately. The only other things I would like to share with other reviews comments about wi-fi and manuscript restaurant closed on Sunday apart from that this hotel is close to number one of our favourites.
We will certainly like to stay in another Kempinski Hotel in other parts of the world when travelling. We would strongly recommend this hotel to anyone travelling to Brugge.

A conversion of a medieval Dukes of Burgundy palace, this hotel combines character with modernism. With private gardens and quirky modern art sculpture it is an oasis in this beautiful city. Prices match the style. Attentive and helpful multilingual staff. We had an enormous, charming and well equipped room with a bed that made it quite difficult to get up for the excellent breakfast.
I think this might just be one of my favourites of all time...and that is saying something.

Dukes' Palace has been restored beautifully to provide an exceptionally comfortable experience away from home. It also manages to be very quiet whilst just 100 metres or so from a major shopping street in Bruges where the traffic, both pedestrial and motorised is heavy much of the time.

Staff are outstanding, all speaking three languages fluently, and always ready to engage with a greeting and a smile. Impressive, and particularly good in the Atelier bar.

I have to share other reviewers comments about hot/cold showers but otherwise this hotel gets pretty close to perfect. And we got a very good rate booking through Eurostar.
