Our Eurostar package put us in the Ibis Hotel which was overbooked. We were upgraded to the 4* Hotel Academie just around the corner where we were warmly welcomed in English, given an immaculately clean, charming and comfortable room, with flexible and very efficient heating, though the lighting system took us a bit longer to master! which gave us an excellent base for exploring this delightful city. Its position, off the main drag, gave us easy walking to all the places we wanted to see, in an area of specialist shops and restaurants, and a late night store. It was just far enough away from the main Markt Place which was much busier. Breakfasts (till 10 o'clock) were a vast array of fruit, cereals, croissants and other pastries, cheeses, hams, hot dishes, eggs cooked in every possible way (scrambled was particularly good), coffee was excellent, all laid out so that you could serve yourself in whatever order you chose. The dining room had a curved brick roof, nice pictures, delightful ambience, the staff were attentive efficient and smiling without being intrusive. A particular benefit on the morning we departed was being able to leave our luggage in a locked room which enabled us to go and look at that fabulous Van Eyck one more time. The Yoruba totem in the reception area was a delightful contrast to this modern hotel. A great treat to stay here for our modest outlay.
