The facilities are definitely compatible to a five-star luxury hotel. It’s in an imposing building. The room is very elegant, as well. There is a small but enjoyable spa, that I could use and liked. Especially, there is a surprising and convenient underground parking, even in middle of Brugges! On the other hand, it seemed to me that there are...

Brilliant hotel and well worth the extra cost of a five star. Everything about this hotel is geared for comfort and pleasure. Beds were of a superb quality and very comfortable. Spotlessly clean and all the little add ons you would expect from a five star. Breakfast was plentiful and loads of choice, including huge chunks of Belgium chocolate that...

My fiancé and I stayed in Dukes Palace for 3 nights recently. The hotel is centrally located, a short work to all main attractions in Bruges, and yet pleasantly secluded, down a quiet side street. Lobby and reception areas are sumptuously decorated, perhaps only let down by prints on the wall in place of actual paintings. The room was spacious,...

Worth a night or two if you're feeling a little frivolous. It's a lovely hotel with great, welcoming staff. The only thing to spoil it was the early morning lawnmowers in the gardens. The rooms are an excellent size and well fitted out. It's very central, only a minute or so from the square so is easily fouls when you've...

What a grand hotel, it exceeded our expectations, didn't realise at the time of booking it was a 5 star hotel. We spent 3 nights here. Very central location, grounds are spacious & very relaxing environment to sit & have a drink in. Wasn't expecting Belgium to be more expensive then Germany. There tax's on food & drink is higher...

We stayed at the Dukes Palace for a few nights in room 210, a superior deluxe room with a garden view. It is, as other's have commented, very close to the Markt. The staff are exceptional and customer service is clearly important. The public rooms are very classy with comfortable furniture, candles and interesting art. We had a couple of...

An excellent hotel in the city centre. The rooms were spacious and clean. The hotel itself had a wonderful bar. Breakfast was perhaps the best meal of the day offering big slabs of Belgian chocolate and prosecco! What more could you ask for?!

We spent one night here after I booked our other hotel for the wrong nights. Hotel reception could not have been nicer or more accommodating. They provided us with a large corner room with a king-sized bed. After a week in noisy Amsterdam we had a restful night of peace and quiet. Breakfast was nicely prepared and served with champagne...

Dukes' Palace is a fantastic place to stay for a visit to Bruges. The hotel is in the centre of the city, only a 5 minute walk to the Markt. The hotel is modern, clean and welcoming. The rooms are spacious and luxurious. The breakfast buffet is fantastic and highly recommended.
