The Van Cleef, Bruges
A grand Italianate mansion with an incredible sense of history, The Van Cleef is a fabulous hotel in the heart of Bruges. For over 700 years it used to be the home of counts and dukes of the Van Cleef dynasty. Today, The Van Cleef is transformed into a small, luxury boutique hotel where style comes with substance, where classical is mixed with contemporary and where cutting-edge facilities are combined with good old-fashioned service standards.
Hotel Van Cleef has a beautiful selection of 16 luxury rooms and suites, each of them furnished in an elegant and eclectic style and with marble bathrooms and whirlpool baths.
Breakfast is served à la carte in the elegant Green Room, with its spherical Italian crystal chandeliers. The hotel also has a stylish, green malachite St Petersburg Bar, adjoining the terrace.
Van Cleef probably has the best canalside terrace in all of Bruges. The location of the hotel is perfect, being just a 5 minute walk from the main shopping streets of the Belgian city.
