The Van Cleef in Bruges: A Rich History with Contemporary Elements

A grand Italianate mansion with an incredible sense of history, The Van Cleef sits like a stately home in a fabulous setting in the heart of Bruges. For over 700 years it has been dedicated to the pursuit of pleasure and power and has been called home by the various 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 the classical is mixed with contemporary and where cutting edge facilities are combined with good old-fashioned service. The hotel is run as a private residence and is open to guests and visitors alike for breakfast and afternoon tea, however only upon prior reservation. The aim is to create a haven of peace in the middle of a busy touristic city, so that guests can relax, read, sleep, eat and feel at home. From the moment you enter the Great Hall, with its many antiques and opulent curtains, you are transported into a world of astonishing elegance. Throughout the lounges, the bar and breakfast room, the renovated spaces stylishly combine modern, vintage and antique furnishings. The result is a refreshing fusion of the trendy and the chic.
