Today we visited the Anne Frank house which her father Otto Frank has turned into a museum. It really is an emotional place telling such a sad story. It reminded me of all those years ago when I played Ava in Kindertransport. You get to walk through the attic where they lived and go through the bookcase as they would have done. You can hear the …
Brugge is a quaint little town that's very old. Has a lot of old places and the streets are very small. An awesome place to visit even with the cold and rain. Had possibly the best waffle ever in the city center. Toured a brewery, saw one of the only (if not THE only) Michelangelo pieces outside of Italy as well as the supposed blood of Jesus and some other cool sites.
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. ...
... the deck. Michael wanted to see the soccer match between Australia and Netherlands, so we drove into Ypres. We drove along this narrow road which became more narrow as we drove further. It was beside the canal all the way and I said to Michael I think this is a bicycle path! On the way home we discovered it was! Found a pub where the TV was on and sat down. We were the only ones there. Unfortunately the result did not go our ...

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!
