Bottom Line

The 45-room Hotel De Tuilerieen mixes the historical and the contemporary in an upscale way, creating a comfortable, welcoming atmosphere throughout. It is in the heart of Bruges on the Dijver Canal and within walking distance to restaurants, shops, and attractions; however, this sometimes results in noise reaching the rooms. Grand furniture, pops of color, and thoughtful extras decorate the elegant yet modern rooms and the bathrooms are large and appealing. Original features can be seen throughout the hotel and there is free Wi-Fi, a wellness center, and butler service by request. On-site parking is available, but costs a daily fee, and the breakfast, although wonderful, is expensive. This hotel is also pet-friendly and has a gorgeous indoor pool with a skylight, a rare find in the city.

Scene

Modern, upscale hotel with historic roots

Overlooking the Dijver Canal in a 15th century building, the Hotel De Tuilerieen combines historical details and modern amenities in a luxurious way. The lobby has tourist information, gorgeous chandeliers, tile and wood floors, and bright floor-to-ceiling windows with abundant natural light. Grand staircases are impressive and the plush, multi-colored antique furniture throughout is comfortable and stylish; original brick and beams can also be seen. Photos of famous guests decorate the walls along with contemporary wallpaper while flowers and cozy nooks add homey touches. There is a wonderful outdoor terrace with large shrubs that make it feel private and free newspapers in the lobby. An on-site bar has low lighting, which makes it feel cozy in addition to the welcoming, intimate vibe that runs through the hotel.

Location

In the heart of Bruges, within walking distance to restaurants, attractions, and shops

Map of Hotel De Tuilerieen

The Hotel De Tuilerieen is located on a busy street in the center of Bruges. The Gruuthuse Museum, Bruges Belfry, Basilica of the Holy Blood, Burg, and Grote Markt are all under a five-minute walk from the hotel and Minnewater is about a 10-minute walk away. Guests can walk to a number of shops, restaurants, and other attractions, and public transportation can easily take you to any other destination in the city. Renting a car is only necessary if you plan on visiting the countryside or traveling outside the city center. From this location, guests get a good feel for the atmosphere and culture of the city, but the slow traffic outside the hotel’s front door makes it difficult and time consuming to get out of the city.

Rooms

Bright, luxe rooms with exceptional design and great extras

Elegant and historical, the rooms at this hotel are bright and large while mixing new and old flawlessly. The cottage style of the rooms includes a good mix of neutrals and colors such as blues and yellows, and the wood furniture is high quality. Antique touches such as chandeliers and original wood beams are in some rooms as are views of the splendid Dijver canal. Electric kettles are available in every room in addition to minibars and 45-inch flat-screen TVs. A free newspaper is delivered each day and there are slippers and bathrobes available in the bathroom. A separate walk-in shower and tub have clean white tile and some rooms have double sinks. DeTuilerieen amenities and heated towel racks add some luxury to the bathrooms and the space is large and inviting. Because the Hotel De Tuilerieen is on a busy street; outside foot and car traffic as well as indoor hallway noise may be an issue for some.

Features

Bright indoor pool and wellness center with massages; free Wi-Fi throughout
