Historical Traveler Reviews BEST WESTERN Hotel Acacia Brugge
Simple but nice Hotel
Having spent some time researching Hotels for a weekend in Bruges and having read every review for every Hotel we decided that simply on value for money the Acacia was the hotel.
They were very polite and emailed out a map and directions to the hotel and this proved to be a must!
The hotel is situated a two minute walk off the main square but is tucked away from the main tourist area in a pleasant sidestreet between two shopping streets.
We arrived early and the room was not ready so they said to store our bags and come back later but enjoy some time in Bruges first.
We booked a Junior Suite and were allegedly upgraded to a Superior Room for our stay which to us was great but we were a little perturbed by how small the room was compared to the Junior Suite. The room was fresh and just decorated and was leagues ahead of the Junior Suite (which did smell smokey and was a bit faded in decor) but as I said small.
Overall I would visit Bruges again and might return to the Acacia for the pleasant hotel, nice staff and great continental breakfast. But would possibly look at some of the other hotels on my list that I could not get booked into this time.
Don't miss the Brujtles Bar around the corner open from 4.00pm with over 300 types of beer! And for traditional yet brilliant food in a lovely atmosphere visit the "Vlamishce Pot" Right out the hotel to the main street, left at the waffle bar and 200 yards up the road you will see a side street with the restaurant visible.
Have fun ,we did....but bring comfy walking shoes and an umbrella!
Best stay at Bestwestern Premier Acacia
I found this hotel and made the reservation on the internet. When we arrived into Bruges and came upon the hotel we found it right away what we were looking fore. We had an incredible 2 level spotlessly clean modern room with high windows, and a sizable loft bedroom and bath/shower + separate WC upstairs. The downstairs room was HUGE as a living area.
A lovely full champagne-breakfast is served in a dining room on the main floor and is included in the price !
Korte Zilverstraat is just in the very center of Bruges,close to Market Square, museums and shopping streets. For the price they ask, I would absolutely stay here again and highly recommend it.
20% discount for early booking, you can't get better
My partner and I travelled to this hotel on 15Oct05 for, unfortunatly, only two nights.
We were looking for a hotel to explore the city from so were pleasently surprised when we arrived at this great hotel. The lobby was lovely, large, airy, marble and spotlessly clean. Check- in staff were fantastic and very helpfull. The room was quite large, perfect for us with a lovely full bathroom, separate toilet and very comfortable bed.
The sauna and swimming pool, all free to clients, are situated on the ground floor and are great for a city hotel: the sauna is more than large enough and we were lucky to be the only people in it. The bar in the hotel was busy untill late and has lovely comfy seats, the beer and wine is not expensive at all and for the spirits we got standard a double portion!
Champagne-breakfast was the best I've had in Europe, so much choice. I'm a vegetarian and found lots from scrambled egg and cheese on toast to yogurt ,fruit , cereal etc and my partner had mainly bacon and egg. Also plenty of fresh orange juice, hot chocolate and various tea's and coffees.
Acacia is locate very near to the Market Square and in a great shopping area. We travelled around the whole city so easily from this hotel. On departure day we left our luggage in our car in our private garage under the hotel and went off to explore as it's so quick to get back to from anywhere. Would stay at this hotel anytime I was in Bruges whether for leisure or bussiness as had a great time. would say it's certainly one of the best Bestwestern hotels ever stayed.
Great welcome, Great Staff, Great location - Great Hotel
Check in was 15.00 but arrived early at 9.00!. Reception staff gave us a great welcome and our room was already available. What a suprise we had ,a junior suite with kitchen / living and outdoor space and an upstairs bedroom, bathroom & seperate toilet. NB: very steep open plan staircase with open sides - no good for restricted mobility or children. The bed was the most comfortable hotel bed I've ever slept in, didn't wake up with 'ironing board' back next morning. And joy - an opening skylight window - fresh air in the bedroom all night as well. The room was very clean, although the powder blue upholstery on sofa and chairs was slightly grubby but the delightful pation with table and chairs more than made up for this. Free supply of tea/coffee/ chocolate/ milk, etc on each landing for use in rooms. Great breakfast, in very grand breakfast / dining room, with huge selection of hot & cold food, fruit , fresh bread- even champagne and freshly squeezed orange juice. Staff again were very friendly and obliging.
Even the parrot in the reception (which is allowed to exercise out of its cage)is friendlyand shouts hello. Hotel is located minutes from the centre of Brugge but very quiet as fronts a narrow road. Delightful sound of tunes from the Belfry fill the bedrooms - however rest assured they are muted during the night. Building work going on almost opposite but very visitor friendly , we never heared a thing. Will certainly be going back and would highly recommend.
The Hotel: very beautiful from the out- and the inside; it is a lovely, well-kept hotel. We were very impressed
The Rooms: again, beautiful rooms, well appointed, large and very clean
The Staff: friendly, helpful, knowledgable and everyone I dealt with had a good command of English, which was much appreciated.
The Food: the hotel serves only breakfast which is included in the price of the room, but it was very good quality food, lots of variety...there is even champagne. The dining area is very nice, just like bar and other public areas.
The Area: it's just the most central place in Bruges. There were several good to very good restaurants in the area, market square and most important chopping-streets are just begint the corner, spacious own car parking facilities at the hotel, etc..
Others: Very safe area, free internet, very good arrangements like the romantic one we booked (see more on there website
Only 50 m. from market square, main shopping streets and tourist attractions
Best quality/price for the interior, rooms, breakfast, sauna and underground private garages.
Verry friendly and helpfully people.
Out of Date
Just back from staying in the Best Western Premier Acacia in Brugge. This was supposed to be 4* hotel. Location was great and staff friendly. Breakfast was nice. However rooms were very dated and had bad 'old' smell. Bad layout of bathrooms and you could not see the tv from the bed - and chairs were uncomfortable. Really dark rooms and bed didn't look very inviting. Pool was tiny and very cold as was jacuzzi. No changing rooms and toilet room at pool area had saloon type door which you could see into from the pool - would not recommend this hotel - way over priced
Quiet Hotel, Good location
The hotel faces a quiet street but is close to the action in Brugge. Staff was freindly and gave us an excellent restaurant recommendation. The breakfast room and bar area were all laid out nicely. Free internet access in the lobby but the background music is a continually repeating jazz rendition of "Light My Fire". Relaxing at first but finally annoying. Rooms are large and comfortable. Small indoor pool area with an above ground spa. Rec room only contained a billiard table (the kind with no pockets) mostly useless. There is a large building construction project across the narrow street which was not in process over the weekend.
Nice hotel in great location
Nice hotel in great location. Nice big rooms, well equipped, and clean, with some charm. Very quiet.
Ideal location, in the for the town centre, and just round the corner from some great bars, and the Hobbit restaurant, which was fantastic.
There's a pool, but didn't see it.
Would definitely stay there again, as we had a great time.
Old Town Charm
Great location in the heart of the old town. The Acacia is a great old building with period decor and a crazy parrot in the lobby. The Junior Suites were good value and very spacious and quiet, my only criticisms would be that the decor in the rooms was a bit "80s" and the kitchenette was uneccesary in a town of so many great eating options and pretty ugly. Hotel staff were really good and the bar was pleasant.

Rather by accident we discovered a very pretty little square called St. Anna's Square, with a rather plain church by that name in the center. Upon entering, though, we found an amazing interior of ornately carved wooden sculptures, confession booths and a screen dividing the front of the church from the rest of the sanctuary. The ...

We then put on our tourist hats, fanny packs, and ugly shorts, lathered on sunscreen and strapped a camera to our neck to join the throngs of tourists in the streets.

At the station we saw on a map that our B&B was a decent walk (25 mins) and it was 8pm so we splurged and got a taxi which only cost 9 euro. As soon as we started our taxi journey I was oohing ...
