This hotel is 1st Class.
Our first trip to Brugge and I found this hotel on the trip advisor site, it had a good overall review, but the few that were bad left me worrying I had made a mistake.
All I can say is the people who found fault must be very hard to please.
It location is ideal, literally a 10 minute’s walk from the Train/Bus Station, and a 2 minute walk up to join the main street.
The hotel staff were helpful and friendly and spoke perfect English, we arrived early and we were given our room keys without any problem.
The reception is clean and modern. It has an area to sit and relax both inside and out, as well as a deep red velvet bar area.
Inside the hotel between floors is a pool with coi carp that runs under a little bridge.
The room itself was lovely, clean and modern, with a huge bed(larger than king size), it had a table and chairs as well as the dressing table, large wardrobe and TV.
The bathroom was lovely with both a bath and shower.
We looked out onto a side street onto a lovely building and gardens which we later found to be a church.
Some people had left reviews of having to listen to horse and carriages go past on the cobles…this was not a problem, sure they went by, but it was charming, part of the holiday experience…when do you hear horse and carriages at home?
As I mentioned it was a couple of minutes one way to the main street, but this did not make it noisy, just very convenient, in the other direction was lots of bars and restaurants, and the Lake of Love which is beautiful.
The breakfast was also very good, a mix of continental and semi English…do not travel abroad and expect to be given a Full English…if you want that stay in England. Apart from the croissants,rolls,toast,,election of meats and cheeses,cereals etc, was also scrambled egg with chopped bacon, boiled eggs and min frankfurters, it was very nice and I’d certainly choose it again.
We had a thoroughly lovely time and not only will we go back to Brugge we will certainly go back to the Hotel Academie, it was wonderful.
