We parked, left the car, and walked into the center in about 15 minutes. The fellow at the desk was exceptionally friendly. The room was a good size with a big bathroom.(no shower though) Breakfast in the morning was basic and good. Our only problem was that the internet service advertised was not available. As we keep in daily touch with an aging relative, this bothered me somewhat. Overall though, I would recommend this hotel to anyone, and would stay here again myself.

Arrived in the medieval town of Bruges last night, made famous to some of us by the movie In Bruges. As daylight was over, the best sense seemed to be take in a good meal and have a sample of some Belgian beer. Upon check in at St Christopher's Bauhaus, we received a couple for a beer sampler at their restaurant when ordering their meal. With Belgian beer one of the famous around the world, it made for the perfect intro.
The sampler consisted of ...
... a lot more touristy than Antwerp. Bruge does have a couple large churches that were impressive to see. One thing that was cool was a Michelangelo sculpture of Jesus and the Virgin Mary that we saw in a church. It is called the Madonna of Bruges. We were told it was the only Michelangelo sculpture not in Italy. The statue has an interesting history. It was taken from Bruges twice. One instance was in WWII when the Germans took it (as ...
... the top are stunning. It is right in the city centre, so if you stay in Ghent, it's a must-see and should only take around 3 hours.
