Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel De Tuilerieen Brugge
Quaint Hotel with Great Location
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.
Our room was nicely decorated but our king bed was two singles (made up as twins) and pushed together. Bathroom was fine with average amenities for this class of hotel. Lighting in the bathroom is dark and needs to be improved. Beds were o.k.
The hotel has a pool (very small), sauna, steam room and hot tub. The bar is very comfortable and a great spot for an after dinner drink. The hotel only serves breakfast and at $23 Euro per person, we skipped out and ate at local restaurants.
Front desk staff has basic knowledge of the city but not the level that should be provided guests. They are pleasant but lack the detailed information required at this level of hotel. They had no idea about the carillon concert on the square each Sunday at 2:15. They could not call information since it was closed on Sundays
The Hotel De Orangerie was a sister hotel to the De Tuilerieen until this summer.
We had a pleasant stay at the Hotel De Tuilerieen but for the money, I would try another Brugge hotel on my next visit.
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....

Arrived in Brugge at 12.30pm on Thursday, what a cute place. Lots of cute little shops selling Belgium chocolates and beer. And lots of tapestry and lace. Our hotel here is the best one we have been on so far. All the others have been nice, but no room to move.
Spent a day on push bikes cycling around, a great way to see the sights. Brugge is …
Rest and Relaxation! 'Buying bread from a man in Brussels. He was six foot four and full of muscles. "I said do you speak my language?" He just smiled and gave me a vegemite sandwich.' It was great to be back in Brussels for not only did it gave me the opportunity to sing these iconic lyrics again much to the chagrin of Sydney Su, but it also meant …
... old building facades. There was a little market at the top of the main street where Shane picked up a HUGE chicken sausage. We then walked to a park to have a sit down and enjoy the sunshine and peace. This was basically the whole day. Strolling around.
We had a pretty expensive beer in the main square (more circle really) and watched the crazy people queuing for the horse rides. In Egypt you had to chase the drivers away - here people queue - hilarious.
Then Indian for tea ...
... and there were a lot of rooms on each floor with only one toilet. The carpet smelt bad and looked dirty and the bathroom smelt bad too. It is next to a bar where people stay up drinking until late and then stumble back into the hostel and make a lot of noise... (that is only part of that story too). It was not a relaxing place to stay at all - it was very hard to sleep and it felt dirty - they really should do something about it (or maybe I just shouldn't stay ...
