Very very nice - great location and parking

A charming hotel in the city of Bruges
We stayed 4 nights in this stunning hotel. It is a beautifully refurbished palace and they managed to keep its old charm also in the interior. The location is perfect, a few minutes walk from the central square. Breakfast was nice but they could work on improving the service. Coffee was average and it took a couple of goes to get a soft boiled egg but apart from that the quality of the food was superb. Rooms are very comfortable with great beds. After the first night we requested a room change as we had a problem with the bathroom and they accommodated our request.

Disappointed w bar service. Otherwise, exceptional
Hotel was very nice. Front desk was exceptional. Bar service personnel ( w the exception of the bartender) were terrible - slow and arrogant. On our second visit to the bar there were only two tables occupied and two servers yet we had to flag down the servers three different times and when they came they were full of attitude.

Really is a 5 Star Experience
The Dukes' Palace is a gorgeous 5 star property. At check-in I mentioned that I hadn't slept well in 4 nights and needed a quiet room. The girl at the front desk put us on the top floor. The view of the city from our room was amazing and we just loved hearing the church bells off in the distance. The room was huge as well as the bathroom. When we want to splurge once in a while our favorite chain is The Fairmont and I believe that the experience and room we had at the Dukes' Palace was of that similar caliber. The funny thing is we decided to stay in a Superior Double instead of the Deluxe to save a little $ and it was fantastic. They even had a little box of chocolates waiting in our room for my bday. Nice touch. Housekeeping was SO friendly and offered turn-down service daily and came up immediately whenever we needed ice or anything else. Location is perfect - easy walk to everything but situated so that it is quieter at night than some others that might be on the canal. The only problem we had was driving into town to find the hotel. GPS didn't quite get us there exactly - but close - keep your eyes open for a tiny little sign on the cobblestone street pointing you to the hotel. They provided water, chocolates & new toiletries daily. Loved the bathrobes and slippers too! I would stay here again in a heartbeat! Note that parking garage is an additional 25 euro a day but that's ok for the convenience.
