Rooms were a little small, but beds were comfortable and the room was clean. Also there was a great variety at the breakfast buffet!

Today in Sunday, March 30th, 2014 and it's day four of our school trip to Europe. Today we are headed to Brussels, Belgium.

The hotel wasn't in the best location to walk anywhere but luckily we were only there for the night. After dinner we headed off to bead since the next day involved more travel time and sights to see in Germany!
... frits. Maybe I was expecting too much or comparing to chilli mussels but the ones we had were so plain and boring. Very disappointing for the price we paid! By the time we made it back to the hostel we only had half an hour to shower and prep for our next tour, the beer tour. Once again run by Sandemans.
