We stayed here for 3 nights as part of our trip arranged by Riviera Travel. We spent a lot more time in the room than we'd anticipated due to both having dreadful colds, so were pleased at how comfortable it was - a lovely comfy bed and good sized bathroom with lots of hot water for baths, always a treat when away. The location is excellent and it was very quiet, unusually so for a town centre.
The tea & coffee facilities are limited and next time I'd take a teaspoon and possibly a couple of mugs as those on offer were plastic with a plastic stirrer which melted at the sight of hot water. Take extra tea/coffee too. The fridge was handy for fresh milk etc.
Breakfast was good with a wide choice of buffet food including a limited hot selection. There was a bar and lounge although we didn't really use them. Bruges itself is wonderful and I'd be happy to stay at the Acadamie again next time - we missed so much through illness, there has to be a next time soon!

We have previosuly stayed at a different hotel in Bruges a few times, but our last stay wasn't too good so we chose the Academie this time. We found the hotel easily enough using the map we had. We drove into Bruges and the hotel does have a car park, however, the car park under the concert hall is less than 9 Euros for 24 hours so we left our car there and walked to the hotel. It is about a 10 minute walk from this point. The hotel also backs onto Lake Minnewater, which was a peaceful, pretty spot to relax in.
The hotel is on a side street, about 10 minutes away from the Markt (the main square). We welcomed on arrival and our room was ready, this was before 2pm, which was nice. Our room was in a seperate building at the back, which we crossed the pretty courtyard to get to. It was very cold when we stayed, but it would be lovely to sit in when the warmer weather comes.
Our room was on the top floor, as we had requested, so we were pleased with that. It was spacious with very comfortable twin beds pushed together. There was also a fridge, which is one of those useful touches that many hotels don't think of. Tea & coffee making facilities are also available. The bathroom is large and the bath was very deep with plenty of hot water. There is also a shower, although we didn't try that as we only stayed for one night. Our room overlooked a lovely quiet square.
A great thing about this hotel is that you get free wi-fi in the rooms - alot of hotels, both in Bruges and around the world could learn from this.
We both had a great nights sleep. The blackout curtains worked perfectly and kept the room very dark. The walls did seem a little thin, but as long as you have courteous neighbours you'll be ok. There is a note in the room asking guests to be quiet after 10pm.
We had room only so cannot comment on the breakfast. On checkout the receptionist was very friendly and warm.
When we arrived home from Bruges my husband realised he had left his shirt in the hotel wardrobe. I emailed the hotel to ask if they had found it and they said they had and would send it to us, which was great.
We will definitely return to this hotel on our next visit to Bruges, when we plan to stay a little longer.

Stayed here from Monday - Friday and everything was great;

- Very spacious room with safe, fridge, air con and heating.
- Lovely bathroom with toiletries replaced daily.
- Large choice at breakfast and its served until 10am.
- Cozy bar area with friendly reception staff.
- Within walking distance of the town centre and all the local attractions.
- Free discount card to the tourist attractions (meant we could rent bikes for 9.00E a day!)

Overall a brilliant value hotel and if we were to come back to Bruges, this would be our first choice.

The staff are all friendly and the rooms are comfortable with air conditioning, fridge, telephone and a modern TV. The bathroom in our room was small but had recently been modernised. The breakfast was excellent. It is very central and within walking distance of all restaurants.
We would definitely stay there again. Our stay was organised by Riviera Travel who were excellent
