Hotel De Tuilerieen
Travel Blogs from Brugge
We have been in Brugge for two days and we about to leave for Paris. Brugge is a very old city and the buildings date back to the 1500's. There are lots of old buildings like the church, the bell tower in the main square and the old buildings that important people lived in when when other countries like Spain took it over. I like Brugge for the ice cream and chocolate.
After a great breakfast at the B&B and some good advice about what to see, we set off to see the Flanders Museum at Ypres, and it was well worth the visit. It told the history on WW1 in the area very well with great displays and interactive media.
Then on to the Tyne Cot cemetery where there are a lot on New Zealanders buried and the …
Last night's dinner at Den Gouden Harynck (The Golden Herring, rated one Michelin star) was spectacular. Seared foie gras with caramelized onion and a mandarin orange coulis followed by sweetbreads served over a bed of spinach, wild mushrooms, roasted tomato, frothy egg white and flakes of Parmesan along with a half bottle of a delicious red (2004 …
Dinner turned out quite well last night at De Visscherie, a seafood place just up the street. Grilled monkfish, tartars of scallops, king crab and new potato salad, tzaziki with sevruga caviar and a crispy, deep-fried cauliflower croquettes. Raspberry and cream-filled pastry for dessert with a glass of good Tokay -- all accompanied by Sinatra. [ …
I leave the hotel an hour before dawn to walk along empty cobbled streets glistening from last night's showers. The lights of the brick and stone buildings lining the canal are reflected on still waters like black glass. The town seems muffled in sleep, with only the occasional dog walker and cyclist sharing the narrow path along the canal. Stars …

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel De Tuilerieen Brugge
My wife and I spent two nights at the De Tuilerieen hotel on 1/16 & 17. We arrived early and since our room was not available, walked the beautiful city of Brugge. We returned around 5:00PM and were shown to our room on the third floor, back of the hotel, which had not been cleaned. The desk person was very embarrassed and moved us to a room on the first floor with a view of the canal. While a great view, the noise from the street is loud during the day and evening.
My husband and I spent our honeymoon at this hotel. We went two weeks before Christmas and it was perfect! The hotel was amazing, absolute luxury! When we arrived there was champagne in our room! Bruges was absolutely beautiful too, definitly the most beautiful, pituresque place in the world. Whe you visit you feel like you're on the set of a film or in a storybook, it's so pretty and so romantic. We will definitly be going back every anniversary!
Stayed at this hotel for 4 nights - beautiful hotel, excellent location and very friendly and helpful staff. They up-graded us to a beautiful room as the hotel was not fully booked (a lovely touch). The pool and sauna were great. Breakfast room is truly beautiful - with wonderful food (great coffee) - candles lit -again here the staff are so experienced, friendly and helpful and take great pride in their work. Had a great time - and would not hesitate to go back to this hotel. Wish I could find more hotels like this on my travels!!
Great hotel experience
I have travelled a fair deal and I'm almost always disappointed by the hotels I book. I've stayed in cheap youth hostels as well as five star hotels on 5th Avenue NY but it's hard to find a place that actually exceeds you're expectations or where you feel truly home....Hotel De Tuilerieen is an exception. Besides the great location it is very comfortbaly decorated, the rooms are huge have a lovely decor and the attention to detail makes a stay at this hotel a great experience. The staf was very friendly and the breakfast we enjoyed was scrumptuous to say the least. I would highly recommend this hotel. It is pricey but I recommend checking ut there website for special deals. (Off season) it is possible to stay here for 170 Euro for 2 people including breakfast!
This understated but elegant hotel is located on a quiet canal, a safe 5 minutes walk from the awful Markt (picture Leicester Square if you're from the UK). We had a great little room up in the attic, with character, cleanliness and comfort. The (small) pool, jacuzzi, steam room and sauna were a perfect antidote to a day's walking. The staff were quite superb (often in three languages simeltaneously). On the down side (although not major), the lift is covered with mid-80s grey carpet, the breakfast room got a little fraught at the weekend, and most importantly, the rate quoted doesn't include parking (E15/day) or breakfast (E24/head)
Dont go anywhere else!
Not much else to add about this hotel, it is really well located and has a lot of charm and character. We booked one night at the cheapest rate we found on the internet and the room was spacious and with great character. I have been often disappointed by hotels where rooms are $300 or more but let me tell you that with this hotel - and the fact that you can get a rate as low as half this amount (and with breakfast!) you will not regret one second your purchase. Service was really really nice and swimming pool and hot tub opened 24 hours a definite plus. I would not bother one second to look for another hotel when i come back to brugges I will definately go back there!!
Won't stay anywhere else in Brugge.
This hotel is lovely and elegant, and the service is impeccable. Our room was in the new wing, but it was incredibly charming and distinctive. Beautiful bathroom! And the breakfasts are to die for.
(Champagne and handmade chocolates!) Be sure to have a drink in the cozy bar before or after dinner.
I'm picky, and this hotel exceeded my expectations.
The Tuileireen is a lovely, yet small hotel in a perfect location. It has the feel of a town house property coupled with friendly and discreet service.We stayed in an Executive Room which are possibly nicer than the Junior Suites (although slightly smaller) as they have very romantic 4 poster beds. Generally the rooms in the new wing are better, particularly the bathrooms. However, I think most rooms would meet expectations.The rooms facing the back of the hotel are quieter. If you want a canal view room, want to sleep in late and like to keep the bedroom windows open then you may get disturbed by the canal boats with their commentary.Overall a very nice hotel!
This hotel was amazing! It is has a prime location adjacent to a picturesque canal in the heart of the city just a few hundred yards from the main Markt Square. Access to the canal boats is just opposite the building. We stayed in an executive room with a view of the canal. The room was beyond our expectations. The bed was comfortable with soft pillows. The room had a large sitting area with extra large sofas. The bathroom was extremely large compared to most European hotels. It has a nice soaking tub with all the bath salts and fragrances you could want, two basins, and a separate standing shower. Linens and sheets were perfectly laundered and the room smelled so nice. I would highly recommend this hotel. We stayed for one night only and wish we would have stayed for a few more days. The service was fantastic. We enjoyed a late evening in their garden patio where we enjoyed a great wine. Most importantly we got all of this for 1/2 the published rates. It was a steal for the accomodation offered and the level of service and luxury.
Spent a fantastic 5 days at this hotel last Easter. Got a great deal and a fantastic room. Very quiet and tasteful with 4 poster bed. When i looked round Brugge, which is stunning, we didn't see a nicer hotel. We will return....
