This was a wonderful place to stay. If coming I would recommend coming by train as prking anywhere in town, but especially near the hotel, is monstous. The rooms are not air-conditioned, but the windows open wide and with the breeze off the ocean the room stays comfortable. Located right on the corner of the pedestrian mall where it terminates into the marina.

... became law that no less than 60 swans must be within the city walls at all times. Of course we were also taken around the movie locations and shown where to find the only beer not available anywhere but Brugge. After the tour we called into a takeaway called Zam Zams where giving them the finger whilst placing your order got you 10%25 off! The rest of the evening was spent in the Bauhaus bar chatting to one of the guys from our room. The ...
