PERFECT! Well situated, retains the old world feel but is very up to date, rather posh, nice employees who are helpful.

Travel Blogs from Brugge
I am in Bruges, beautiful, medieval Bruges. Wandering through the narrow cobblestone streets, looking up at the churches and towers is like being in a fairy tale, transported to another place, another time. The sun has been shining and the bells singing, ringing out familiar as well as not-so-well-known songs from the 47 bells in the carillon …
... to find out what would happen if they wrapped in the gears. I pulled over to tie and tuck them in; no issue but was at the end of the group as I needed to catch up. I also noticed that the sun was strong and the trail was hard to see the hazards as the early morning had the sun right in our eyes. Just as the pace was relaxed and rolling through the parks you heard a bang and saw someone crunch over the handle bars. Even though there was nothing you can do, it was painful to see ...
... beautiful green space, gorgeous Belgian horses with their hairy ankles trotting through the streets pulling open carriages, lots of fascinating shops with Belgian lace, chocolates, waffles, Dutch tiles, and tacky tourist stuff, canals with trees and flowers hanging in them, swans on the canals, ancient buildings, etc.! Wow what a wonderful place! We tried to see as much as we could in our short visit--so here's a brief synopsis. :)
First we visited a lace shop--think Belgian ...
Last night we had headed for the bell tower, and dined on croquettes and salad in one of the little restaurants overlooking the square.
Sitting outside under some very efficient heaters, it was cosy.
The buildings are very cleverly lit up and there are no harsh neon lights so the effect is warm and most attractive.
What was rather less attractive was the marked smell of drains as we walked into the hotel. it lingered in our bedroom ...
... there were very few people on the streets, whereas in Brugges the streets were full of people and shops were open. The shop attendants all spoke english and willing to talk - no so in france.
We felt that we were being ripped off in France and this was confirmed when we looked at a flyer for Battlefield tours at half the price and included lunch. So if planning to see the WW1 Battlefields stay in Belgium.
