Bruges is a picture-perfect must-stop on any European itinerary, with a scattering of distinguished hotels providing the perfect backdrop for a dreamy getaway.

A hint of history
Most of Bruges’ medieval architecture in the city centre has been well preserved due to its World Heritage status. The affluence of the historic trading city can still be felt among the notable, Gothic-like structures that line the cobblestone streets, many of which have been converted into hotels.
Kempinski Hotel Dukes’ Palace Bruges occupies a 15th-Century castle where palatial grounds complement luxurious suites furnished in ornate antiques. NH Brugge is a slightly more affordable option for those after a dose of history. Residing in a monastery dating back to the 1600s, you can sleep well amid stained glass windows, exposed wood beams and deluxe amenities.
While the city is brimming with guesthouses, boutique hotels and converted palaces, big-name brands are also well represented here. Ideal for those that prefer the reputation of a well-established chain, these hotels offer facilities that travellers the world over have come to expect, as well as characteristics unique to their Bruges locations.
Offering views over the famous Sint-Donaas church, Crowne Plaza Hotel is perfectly located just steps from the Market Square. Rooms are stylish, contemporary and some also feature the building’s original wooden beams. Novotel Brugge Centrum is modern and sleek, yet also offers a tranquil terrace setting overlooking a sparkling outdoor pool.
