I've stayed in 3 other hotels in Brugge old town but the Academie Hotel is by far the most memorable, the most character and friendly staff. Location is fantastic in the cobbled streets and lots of small shops and squares nearby. I will recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Brugge.

Great hotel centrally located

We really enjoyed our stay here. The rooms were spacious, the bathroom was modern and the breakfast was really great. All combined with a central location which meant everywhere in Bruges was walkable. They have underground parking at €20 per day but you can stay till 3 pm on the day of checkout, we found this really convenient.

Great stay

Great location, friendly staff but then spend a lot of time in the back. Great amenities. Pleasantly decorated. Room was spacious how our room was next to the main road which was noisey, closed the window but the air con was not that great. Would recommend and definitely stay again

good hotel great location

Room was small but very nice. Clean and well equipped. Tea and coffee making facility in room. You get 2 sachets of coffee per day. Want more - 2 euros? Bit petty really for hotel to do that. Staff at hotel were smiley and helpful. Did not eat there - breakfast was another 12.50 euro each.
