Absolutely not 4 star. It is more like student accommodation. Staff very pleasant and helpful not their fault. Plastic glasses in rooms ,towels are paper thin management need to renew all of this if they want to be 4 star.there are better 4 star in Bruges go looking.

Had a three night break at this hotel which was clean and tidy and the staff friendly and obliging. Good central location with good restaurants within easy reach.
Breakfast was a great way to start the day with plenty of choice. Wpild recommend this hotel.

We are so pleased with our stay here. We rang to tell them that we are travelling with a small baby and would need a cot. Everything was arranged for us when we arrived with a very nice cot and bedding for the baby ( agreed this cost us extra but well worth it).
I think the 3rd floor is the baby floor! and we were relieved to hear other babies in the rooms next to ours!
The room was spacious, the location was excellent it was in a quiet street so no noise at all during the night. Its opposite a lovely bakery/tea room.
The staff are lovely, very warm and welcoming. We also had the parking in the basement reserved for the 2 days that we were there, this is another bonus as its very expensive to park your car and then have to lug around your stuff.
We have been back to this hotel twice now and everytime we receive the same standard, definitely recommend!
One note- The temperature is controlled by a panel on the wall BUT you do have to manually switch on the radiators just be mindful.

Room Tip: 3rd floor if with babies!

My wife and stayed at this hotel for three nights during a very cold, indeed freezing, spell of weather during March 2013.
Overall the hotel is nothing fanciful and is quite satisfactory. Its 4 star rating is that for Belgian standards and you would expect more from a 4 star rated hotel in the UK.
The hotels location is fine. It is within walking distance of all the attractions of central Bruges. Within a few minutes stroll you can be at any of the main tourists sites such as the Burj or the Belfry in the market Place.
We were room 270 which meant you had to cross an small but open courtyard. For breakfast this meant getting a fresh blast of freezing cold air first thing!!
The room was adequate. A fridge was provided which was very useful if you wanted to a keep a bottle of wine or a bottle of water cool. There was a kettle to make tea and coffee but only with small plastic cups and holders. However, you were only given one sachet of tea and coffee and thererafter you had to buy extra! Not quiet 4 star expectations.
The bathroom was clean and whilst the shower was hot in the morning, this had become only warm on a night and therefore a hot bath was not an evening option.
The room was warm and the heating was easily controlled. A small, wall mounted plasma TV included BBC 1 amongst its channels.
A good electronic safe was provided free of charge.
Breakfast was fairly good although the coffee making machine did not provide the best tasting tea or coffee. There was were a good selection of cereals; pastries; cold meats and cheeses and also a hot selection including a nice choice of scrambled eggs with bacon.
The bar area was fairly small and overall quite univiting as was the lounge area on the other side of reception.
We stayed at the hotel as part of a 'package' holiday and therefore I am unaware of the specific room rates.
However, as I have said before overall the hotel is satisfactory but nothing fanciful.

From the minute we arrived at academie hotel we found the staff to be incredibly welcoming, friendly and helpful. The hotel itself is lovely; the room was incredibly clean, modern and catered for our every need. The hotel is located 5 minutes from the main market square; perfect location! I would definitely recommend this hotel for anyone trying to escape and relax.
