... kids on a school trip. Every street we walked down we saw young English kids on a trip. I wish I could have gone to another country when I was a young kid with my school, European kids are so lucky!
Once Djuna got back from school her and I went back into the village to shop and she showed me some of her favourite places to hangout.
In the evening, we went once again to the village (haha) and met with Jaey and Djuna's dad, step ...
... we headed off to the Clubbing stage. I wan't so keen on this; a bit too crowded and heavy, so we went back to the Silent Disco to embarrass Ci some more. He dragged us out of there gone Midnight, but had his revenge by throwing up all over the bathroom floor at 2am!
After breakfast again in the hotel on Sunday we went for a last minute stroll around Brugge and to stock up on beer and chocolate. We didn't want to leave; we had had a perfect weekend. ...
"If you make it to Belgium, you have to go to Brugge!"
If I had a penny for every time I heard this, I would be a millionaire.
Locals in Paris and friends alike kept telling me about visiting Brugge. It was an easy day trip from Brussels and a must see. I was told it was a cute, romantic, small city that can be seen in one day.
... Otherwise, be prepared for a fairly full boat. Less is definitely more in this case. The guide is informative, but a bit monotonous. Sailing down the canals, it adds to the imagination of what life was like back in the medieval times.
From the waterways to the streets, it was a day of wandering and exploring new streets. Streets without shops feel truer to past days, while shopping streets are filled with almost an ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Academie Hotel Brugge
The best breakfast outside the UK!!!
Well situated friendly modern hotel
Clean modern conveniet hotel. Staff friendly and nice area for relaxing. Rooms modern and functional but not luxurious. Despite being on main street, quite quiet. Went in November 03, hoping to go again.
A marvellous hotel
I stayed in hotel Academie at the beginning of August. It is a wonderful hotel, we had a very nice spacy room with a lovely baththub. The staff was so helpfull and polite. The breakfast buffet was delicious! The location is perfect also, right in the middle of the city centre; the most romantic place in Bruges. I can recommend this hotel to anyone who likes comfort & good service at a reasonable price.
Academie was just OK
We stayed at the Academie in early June 2004. The first room we were given had a very strong odor of smoke, even though the room was designated non-smoking. The next room had a slight odor but was not bad enough to make us request yet another room. The room was spacious and clean - not fancy. The hotel is walking distance to the train station and is in a good location. The breakfast buffet was much better than average. So overall while the hotel was OK, for the money we spent I would look for a different place if I ever went back.
Stayed here a couple of night , only one member of staff friendly, smells of stale smoke ,owner rude and arrogant I was shouted at for looking in fishpond by owner, breakfast dishes were dirty and food never topped up.
Comfortable and well placed.
Stayed at this hotel for 2 nights in December 2003. The room was a good size, comfortable and quiet; the staff friendly and helpful. The buffet breakfast was more than ample in choice and quantity, although it lacked any human touch, as there were no staff to be seen!
Internet pictures of hotel were accurate but descriptions misleading!
Asked for "non-smoking" room but very intense smell of stale smoke on booking-in and kept up half the 1st night by people upstairs/below/somewhere??? smoking VERY HEAVILY. (This was reported to Reception but no action was taken) Also, Led to believe hotel had it's own retaurant but was not open (except for buffet breakfast) during our stay.
Great location and great hotel
This Hotel is a 5 min walk from the train station, and close to the town square and all the sites. The staff were friendly and helpful, the hotel is newly rennovated, and the rooms a nice size with bath etc.
Included in the price is breakfast, with all the offerings you need.
Would stay at this place in the future on my next visit.
I stayed at this hotel for 2 nights. What I was not told was that it was a coach tour hotel. The rooms were clean of a good size but thats about it. No extras or a feel of a good quality hotel. Having said that it was in an excellent position. If you just want a base it's fine,but if you want to feel pampered don't bother.
Don't open the windows!!
Bruges is a lovely place to visit. Acadamie hotel is very nice in good location but DO NOT open your window in summer - the mosquitioes are dreadful!
