We have just returned from the Academie Hotel and it was a fantastic stay. This was our second time staying at this hotel and it didn't disappoint. Centrally located, fantastic staff who were incredibly warm and welcoming. The hotel has car parking on site which was a real bonus to us. Rooms were spacious, clean & tidy and it ticked...

Had a wonderful four night stay, beautiful large room with lots of cupboard space, clean and comfortable, helpful staff, right in the historic centre of Bruges. Didn't have breakfast but it looked really good, gym facilities as well. Have already booked to go back!

The rooms were a lovely size, clean and tidy but unfortunately we had twin beds which were tiny and uncomfortable. The bathroom was fabulous though. The breakfast was delicious and there was a great variety of items. The reception staff were very friendly and knowledgeable and the hotel itself was lovely. A short walk to everything we needed in the...

Dear Mr/ Mrs Thank you for your review! We're sorry to hear that you found the beds rather small and uncomfortable. All the beds used in the rooms are boxsprings, which are a standard size and are highly recommended in the hotel world. We do hope that you enjoyed your stay and that we can welcome you again in the...

Lovely hotel. Great location. Very friendly staff too. Would recommend. Bar only stays open until midnight though. Breakfast is quite expensive but that's the same in most hotels in the area. The rooms are nice and the shower is pretty epic. No shower doors though which is a bit odd.

A good choice for a good standard of accommodation and location. Rooms were of a good size, very clean and well kept. Comfy bed, TV and usual amenities. Very welcoming and friendly reception staff, and we were able to check in a little early which was great. Breakfast offered a good selection, more than we expected. Plenty of pastries, bread...

Fantastically welcoming check in staff which is always a bonus after a long journey and they helpfully suggested things like the best chocolate shop and best place to eat with kids. They also suggested we use the nearby Parking Katalinje as the hotel parking was full and this was easy to find. Family room was large and spotless with a...
