I was advised to book in here due to the hotel's close proximity to the major sightseeing spots in the city. It is also within a comfortable walk from the rail station. The room and furnishings were spacious,modern and spotless. The bathroom included a bath and shower. Although we were in a room opposite the adequately equipped gym we did... More

I enjoyed staying here, excellent location, easy to walk to from train station, few decent bars yards away. The hotel itself was also good, nice rooms, we had three single beds, decent sized room. Only criticism would be the issues with the air conditioning as we couldn't get it working when we got back to the room, probably would have... More

We had a very good experience here. It is very convenient for town centre. The good large room looked on to the street and the horse drawn carriages passed immediately underneath. The staff were very nice and helpful and the breakfast was excellent.

We stayed in this hotel on a city break to Bruges in Feb 2013. It's a short walk into the main town square and there are lots of chocolate shops and cafes nearby. The brewery is only 5 mins away as well. The hotel itself is lovely. It has a really nice bar area which we found very relaxing. It's... More

Just returned from staying here with Riviera. Excellent location, excellent breakfast choice, clean modern room and en suite. Ours (C184) was at the back overlooking the old almshouses, but very quiet. Bed huge and comfortable. It was hot but the aircon worked fine, wasn't noisy, and a small plumbing fault (basin slow to drain) was fixed before we'd even bothered... More

Have just returned from our 3 night stay here with Riviera. The hotel was well situated, the staff were friendly from the moment we checked in. The room was spacious, comfortable and had everything you could need. We had the view of the nice historic courtyard across the street. The breakfast was lovely, plenty of choice for a hot or...

Situated in a convenient location for all the sights and restaurants of Bruges makes Academie a good base for a visit to the city. The room we had was spacious and clean, although the pillows were lumpy. A problem with the plumbing was promptly fixed. There was a good breakfast choice, albeit the surroundings were cramped....not the environment for a... More

We travelled to Bruges with Riviera Travel via the Eurostar, with accommodation for three nights b & b at the Academie. The hotel is ideally placed for visiting Bruges, there are numerous restaurants within easy walking distance and the sights are also easily reached with a 10 minute walk. The staff were very welcoming and for the most part very... More

Just returned from a wonderful 4 days in Bruges with Riviera Travel. A very good hotel with an excellent buffet breakfast. Bit of a problem with Air conditioning not working in our room but the staff were very helpful and fixed it promptly. Can't fault it for comfort and value. Good bath and shower.

Lovely hotel , well placed, Good bar and excellent breakfast. Rooms well appointed- ours had teeny balcony overlooking courtyard which was lovely but did get noise from people sitting below windows and crossing the area. Fridge , tea making facilities but take your own coffee/tea as they charge if you want extra.
