With claims of being a ‘unique’ 5 star property in Flanders and the high review score, expectations were high… leading to a disappointed stay.
The hotel building is quite nice, with sumptuous reception area, the staff is very friendly and the rooms are quite spacious. And the hotel had made a good flow dealing with the COVID-19 situation. As other reviewers mentioned, location is excellent.
That’s where the good vibes stops however and I start to disagree with most reviewers here. The room itself was nowhere near 5 star levels. Think more of late 90s 4 star chic with a perfume of rundown. The towels we got in our room were completely worn down, including holes in them and threads dangling from them. We could hear every step in the room above and the doors slamming in the hallway, the amenities in the bathroom are from some off brand supplier, no bath salts or anything for the bath; the shower itself is also something that belongs more in a hostel or sports club shower room. Giving the bathroom a distinct utilitarian vibe rather than luxurious. So maybe this is quite ‘unique’ in a 5 * hotel :-)
I’ve long avoided Bruges fearing it’s somewhat of a tourist trap and this experience didn’t completely prove me wrong, however I’m sure there are many better hotels in the city.
We had originally booked into The Aragon but due to covid, this has closed for a while and we were moved to the Dukes Palace and wow, what a great experience we had there.
Such an impressive building from the outside. 5 mins walk from the Markt and a fabulous room.
Staff were really attentive and we really enjoyed the bar area.
We will be back next time we are in this beautiful city
I was here for a business meeting, staying overnight. An excellent stay. Good attention to covid measures. Comfortable bed, nice bathroom with L’Occitane toiletries. Good quality towels and robes.
The hotel is beautiful, with a mix of traditional and modern touches.
We had three meals here - breakfast, lunch, and dinner, plus drinks a few times, and everything was delicious.
I look forward to returning!
