Academie Hotel reviews

Reception staff unwelcoming and unhelpful. No computer available to access our return flight web check-in and staff would not do it for us. Pillows in room were very uncomfortable, mattress was covered in a plastic-type under-sheet or mattress protector which caused the beds to be sweaty and uncomfortable. Breakfast was fine, This was most definitely NOT a 4****hotel. We've stayed in better three*** hotels. Very disappointing. We have used Venere in the past for hotels abroad, mostly in Italy and have had good stays. This hotel in Bruges was by far the worst and most disappointing. Did not live up to any expectation.

In our opinion the relationship between price and quality was concerning the overnights ONLY, NOT breakfast ( € 12.00 p.p.!!!) Anyway the place and the hotel were good.

Hotel was only 10 minutes walk from the train station and very close to shops, museums etc. Rooms were clean and spacious with excellent facilities (hairdryer, kettle, tea & coffee). Staff were very pleasant and helpful. We very much enjoyed our stay here and would highly recommend Bruges and this hotel as a place to visit.
