Incredibly attentive service. Made us feel at home every moment of the day. Fabulous staff and fantastic location
Located in Bruges's Historical Center Bruges neighbourhood, Hotel Van Cleef is in the city centre and on the waterfront. Zeebrugge Harbour and Tillegembos are worth checking out if an activity is on the agenda, while those wishing to experience the area's natural beauty can explore Queen Astrid Park and Minnewater. Looking to enjoy an event or a game while in town? See what's happening at Jan Breydel Stadium or The Merry Velodrome.

Hotel Van Cleef is a lovely hotel with a lot of history. The staff is very friendly, and the lobby, lounge, bar and breakfast room are beautiful. We also greatly enjoyed shopping in the hotel's gift shop, which carries gorgeous jewelry, gloves, scarves, handbags, etc. The perfume sold at the hotel is truly amazing. What we found disappointing about our stay were the actual rooms themselves. Their decor does not match the rest of the hotel - they are almost Ikea-like. Very odd and cramped layouts, and the furnishing contribute to the awkwardness of the rooms. We also found them a little worn around the edges, unlike the rest of the hotel. Also, one of the 17 rooms is a handicapped room, which they tried to give me before I objected. It is very utilitarian and unattractive with no bathtub, so if it matters to you, make sure you designate you do not want the handicapped room prior to your stay. Also, likely because the hotel is slightly off the beaten path (which is nice), the restaurant is only open the first half of the day, no dinner. We also returned one night to the hotel around 8-9pm and wanted a drink in the bar, only to find it closed with no employees anywhere in the hotel. Even the front desk was unattended. We knocked on the office doors to see if we could get a drink, to no avail. Sad. So, it's a nice, quiet location and has some lovely details, but overall Van Cleef is slightly disappointing due to the rooms and lack of hotel food/drink amenities post-breakfast.
