Just a 10 minute walk fro the station
Convenient, clean, nice breakfast, friendly staff, fridge, free internet. Could not fault it really.
A great location and every comfort
Unusually for us we were on a mini-package tour so had not selected the hotel ourselves. We need not have worried because this turned out to be an excellent base for our stay in Brugge.
It is situated in a quiet street leading to the Minne Water; at the other end of the street the road leads straight down to the Markt passing many historic sites en the way. In both directions there is a very good choice of restaurants, a small Carrefour supermarket- great for prepared salads and sandwich snacks, and excellent patisseries and bakeries - which we tried hard to avoid!
Our room on the first floor (served by a new lift) was quite spacious, very well equipped with a nice bathroon. It overlooked an inner courtyard so was very quiet.
Free wifi was available throughout the reception/lounge area with one PC for guests use in the salon. I had fun finding my way around the keyboard on that one!
An adequate self-service breakfast was served in the attractive dining room with a good selection of breads, fruit and continental and hot cooked food available.I particularly enjoyed the scrambled eggs with chopped smoked bacon.
The original hotel was formerly an old commercial building, restored and converted to an hotel in the 1980s. Since then, sympathetically refurbished and extended, it is now on several levels but corridors have little slopes rather than steps between different sections of the building.
It was a bit of a route march from the top of the stairs, or from the adjacent lift to our room (115) so could be difficult for anyone with mobility problems and advisable to ask for a ground floor room or one close to the lift.
We would certainly stay here again.
Quiet and friendly
A friendly welcome and helpful reception throughout our stay. The room and its bathroom were a bit poky - no lift for the final few stairs - but clean with everything working well. Breakfast was fine but needed fresh fruit rather than only tinned. Coffee strong enough and hot, but cooked eggs, sausages etc. could get cold as not topped up regularly when hotel not full - nice do-it-yourself boiled eggs machine. Free internet access in lounge, but might be a queue to use it.
A hotel to relax in. Check the prices before you book as prices offered on the web can change frequently. It got cheaper a couple of days before our stay.
Much cheaper to leave your car in the station car park (2.5 euros a day) than in the hotel facility.
Directions: Easy enough to drive to hotel, unload and then take car to station to park.
2 Stars in a 4****
We booked this 4**** Hotel a few days in advance and there was rebates, so we had our double room for just 80 euros (instead of 175 Euros for the same room)...
The Hotel is only 10 min walking from the Railway station, you can enjoy the view on the Minnewater (the lake of love) during your walk, the hotel is located in the south part of Brugge, in a charming little street, no cars, just bicycles (and horses!). You can do whatever you want from here since the city is tiny, but ride a bicycle is usual and fun...
The Academie Hotel is a great 4****, even if the entrance is a bit weird.. you discover behind a great bar, a winter garden full of green plants, the hotel is divided in to 3 buildings, there is a covered passage to join the three, a modern lift, the place is so quiet...
Room is great, when you switch on the light at first, it shades from dark to light, cool... bed was giant, bathroom was complete, verry clean with everything needed...
Breakfast room is downstairs in the main building, atmosphere is pleasant with old foundation of the building, there is so much to eat, we enjoyed our stay!
Unique Quality: Close to main activities in Brugge, calm place, great room & breakfast
Directions: Close to Minnewater and Wijngaardplein
Modern Comfort in Old Brugge
The Hotel Academie is a 4 * hotel in a quiet location. It is housed in a building that is about 100 years old, but the hotel is completely modern. We had a triple room that was large with a large modern bath.
They have a restaurant and lounge. Breakfast was buffet with a nice selection of hot and cold offerings.
It is located about a 15 minute walk from the Grand Place.
