A little luxury hotel in Bruges

Hotel de Orangerie review

It gets cold in Bruges. Really cold. So what you’re searching for after a day spent traipsing up the belfry steps, strolling through the market square, or visiting all the precious chocolate shops, is a warm little piece of luxury--and a bed that’s not too far a walk.

Ivy-covered Hotel de Orangerie, set in an almost-too-beautiful setting on one of the town’s canals, is just the place. The hotel’s location is ideal-—a stone’s throw from the center of Bruges. Best of all, the large, columned fireplace in the bar makes a magnificent spot for a romantic breakfast on a chilly day--or for an after-dinner drink any time of the year. In warmer weather, there’s a waterfront terrace for breakfast, too.

Splurge for the antique-filled junior suite--it's worth it for the pleasure of lounging around in armchairs as you enjoy the view. The hotel is expensive, yes, but you’re staying in a beautiful 15th-century convent, and possibly Bruges’s most luxurious accommodation. In my view, the fireplaces and the sumptuous bed linens alone are worth the extra cash.
