A delightful break in historic Bruges, at a central canalside hotel with a Japanese garden – includes breakfast and Eurotunnel or Eurostar travel

With a rich, religious heritage, historic sites around every corner, and a charming lacework of meandering canals, it's impossible to begrudge Bruges its UNESCO World Heritage Centre status. Ascend the Market Square's 83-metre-high tower to gaze over the city, where cobbled streets wind past medieval buildings, horse-drawn carriages set a distinctive fairy-tale vibe, and the flood-lit city streets create a unique ambience come evening.

Hotel de’ Medici makes a fitting base for a Bruges city break, with a prime location right on one of the city's canals. You'll find a tranquil Japanese garden, a wellness area and a tempting lounge bar here. What's more, you're a pleasant 10-minute walk from Market Square, with its fringe of 17th-century houses that have been thoughtfully converted into restaurants and cafes – a great place to start your exploration.

What is a Smart Stay?

How are these deals different to your flash sales?

Some getaways are less about blowing the budget on a huge suite, and more about discovering a knock-out destination. When it’s the sights beyond the hotel walls you’re really interested in, it makes perfect sense to go for smart accommodation with great reviews, plenty of creature comforts and a price well below what you’d expect for the area.


And that’s what these stays are – ultra-affordable three- and four-star hotels chosen as carefully as our chicest five-stars. Whether it’s a well-picked base for London or a fly-and-flop break in the sun, you’ll find our Smart stays in savvy, accessible locations, usually with dinner included and other thoughtful extras that are the signature of a Secret Escapes holiday.
