BEST WESTERN Premier Acacia
Travel Blogs from Brugge
Belgium is a favourite so far! The town is beautiful - feels like we're in a storybook. Poppies are everywhere. There is evidence all over town of John McCrae's poem. Today we had a few hours of free time so Josh and I took in the Flander's Field Museum and sought out some Belgian chocolate - so good! The museum was fantastic - provided the stories of many nations and individuals involved in the war effort. ...
... have to find out which restaurant she’s in – Ricardo wasn’t sure.
We finished dinner just in time to go the 8.30pm show in the Princess theatre – Fireworks on Four Strings. This was a violinist - also from Wales – he was amazing – he played classics and classical but with a difference and what skill and showmanship.
When the show finished we decided we were too and so headed up to our room and off to ...
On the way to the train station, we stopped at McDonalds for breakfast. Unfortunately, their food wasn't any better in England than it is in Hawaii. We took the local train to London's Paddington Station, the "tube" to St. Pancras and then had a two hour wait for the Eurostar to Brussels. The Eurostar took us under the English Channel in the "Chunnel", I slept through the experience, ...

Soon everyone decided it was time to get dancing so we moved to a bar just down the road and being that I was a tinsy bit more sober than the rest of our group.. I noticed that no one else was dancing and they appeared less than enthused about our screaming, stamping and drunk dancing... to rock tracks of the 90's if I must be honest with you- not the ...

Due to the delays we didn't get to Bruges until about 5.30pm, but enough time to wander around and take in a it of Bruges and of course sample the chocolate and beer.

Historical Traveler Reviews BEST WESTERN Premier Acacia Brugge
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.
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.
My partner and I travelled to this hotel on 15Oct05 for, unfortunatly, only two nights.
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.
The Hotel: very beautiful from the out- and the inside; it is a lovely, well-kept hotel. We were very impressed
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.
