TravelPod Member ReviewsHotel Burlington Ostende
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.

There were lots of shops selling waffles, but none of them seemed to have what I remembered having in Antwerp. We finally decided to ask. The proprietor told me “of course” when I asked if the waffles had sugar inside. Karl and I shared ...
... right?! I've tried doing my laundry but my last hostel didn't have it and this one says I can only do it tomorrow after 10 am. Oh the struggles of being a backpacker. Ha! Gotta love it. I'll be heading to bed early tonight so I have enough energy to explore Brugge tomorrow! (Mom would be so proud.) -By the way, the mussels and fries were so delicious! It was so much food for only 10 euro, I couldn't even finish all of my fries! I guess that's a good thing though, ...
... level. We talked about cheese, clogs and the German occupation in WWII. We also talked about how this country is generally very accepting of like everything! The first country to legalise gay marriage, pot is legal and can be purchased in coffee houses and the prostitution industry is fully legalised with all the ladies paying taxes etc. very different to back home! We learnt a little bit of Dutch because the locals appreciate you trying but it's a pretty tricky language and they ...
