I managed to book a 4 star boutique style hotel right by the Coliseum! Yay for hotwire!!! Then after my stay in Rome I will be off to Civi again to see my sister and join the ship! I am soooo excited to see my sister! YAY
Thank you, thank you, thank you universe for such an amazing time in Belgium x
... cars. I thought we were gonna die, but we made it. :) When we got back to our hotel, Sam and dad were nowhere to be found. So we parked our bikes and went out to find them. When we could not find them, we came back to the hotel. Then we went out again for lunch. Then - finally - we came back and found Dad and Sam just about to leave. Thank God we caught them. What a huge day. I'm exhausted. Bye, ...
... because his chain had come off.
We customized a bike route today – shorter distance and more sights to see. There were several castles en route, and we found the El Diablo coffee shop in Loppem where we had the best coffee verkeert ever. There was a cute baby and a cute little dog in the coffee shop – there don’t seem to be any rules in Belgium about such things as helmets on bicycles or dogs in restaurants. We then came across ...
... Frites' - Mussels and Chips! So Luke enjoyed this for dinner and we were both very merry on the way back to the hostel. We noticed a sign for a beer tasting as we entered the hostel and last minute joined the beer tasting event they were running. The guide was an American guy, so naturally a little OTT, but seemed to know his stuff and we enjoyed a few more Belgian beers (including a lot of the speciality Trappist monk beers) before retiring to the bar for our last pint. Stayed up ...
... see the Last Post at the Menin Gate one more time. It was packed. It seemed that at least 3-4 schools worth of students were in town that night. The exodus was surprisingly quick, but I'd made the mistake of waiting to eat until after the ceremony and everywhere was busy. The kids weren't there... they were in all the chocolate shops. I went to Poppy's again for some pizza and then hit the sack. Tomorrow was going to be an early day.

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel de Orangerie Brugge
We have just returned from a six night stay at the Hotel De Orangerie and to be perfectly honest I cannot fault it! From the moment of our arrival we were made to feel welcome and shown great kindness. Bruges is a familiar haunt for our family ( we love good food and wine ) and this was our first time at the hotel - last time we stayed at the De Tuilerieen and were not impressed - and personally I would not look further than the Orangerie in future. The decor is stylish and the rooms beautifully furnished, as you would expect from a hotel of this calibre.
The hotel's location is excellent and central ,yet our room was very quiet. The room was on two levels - a sofa bed in the downstairs lounge for our son, along with the main bathroom, and upstairs the main bedroom and seperate toilet and basin. An excellent arrangement that also included two televisions and a DVD player.
All the staff we encountered were friendly and eager to please, particularly the front desk who smiled and offered help and advice throughout our stay. The De Orangerie does not serve evening meals - quite common in Bruges as there are so many excellent restaurants on your doorstep - but breakfasts were marvellous and very relaxing overlooking the canal - in good weather you can take breakfast outside on the terrace.
All in all a wonderful time! The hotel was very child friendly and our six year old had a great time. If you are travelling with children and they tire of the town itself try Boudewijn Seapark, approx. 5-10 mins in a taxi, for a really great escape - Dolphinarium, carousel, roller-coaster, birds of prey etc. Fabulous!
Also well worth a visit is Vineeto's Retaurant and wine bar on Oude Burg, about 2 minutes from the hotel. The owners are SO friendly and happy to accommodate children. They have an excellent wine list and serve either tapas or have a more formal menu. We thoroughly enjoyed both!
Bruges is a great place to visit and I can thoroughly recommend the Hotel de Orangerie.
A world-class experience
We were treated like royalty from the moment we walked in. The superb personal service, the incredible friendliness and stunning interior all add up to a world-class experience. Don't miss the lavish breakfast on the outdoor terrace or a late-night drink by the open fire at the bar. The only downside is having to leave.
Stayed here for one night, travelling with my mother. Location is fantastic - right in the middle of Bruges, and a very cheap and easy taxi ride from the station. Staff were lovely, and our room, whilst very small, was nicely decorated, with comfortable beds. Did not pay for the canal view or sample the breakfast, as everything is right outside the door. Would definitely go back.
Avoid room 103.
We booked the Hotel de Orangerie as we were spending one night in Brugge and wanted a great location and beautiful, comfortable surroundings. Generally the Hotel provided these, but for a hotel of this standard our room was awful. The entrance is located between two sets of glass doors leading from the street to the reception area, and the room appeared to have been squashed in to a corner just to maximise their accommodation capacity. There is no window and one of the walls is a glass partition (which is partially boarded over) leading to the reception area.
We just recently spent three nights at the de Orangerie. The hotel definitely lived up to our expectations. The de Orangerie is very quaint and in a fantastic location. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful - they really made a difference in our visit. I can't say enough good things - we had a wonderful time here. Highly recommend this hotel.
We loved the Hotel de Orangerie! The hotel is very romantic and in a great location. Our room overlooked a canal and was very spacious (with a nice bathroom). The staff was great and the hotel was beautifully decorated. We found it difficult to leave - the hotel and the city - and would go back in a second.
Loved the Hotel Orangerie--and Brugge!
This hotel was so enjoyable. The room was small, but so pretty and quaint. The service was out of this world. On a rainy night, we returned to the hotel at about 11:00. We asked if they had anything like hot chocolate. They led us to the outside terrace by the canal. THen they brought a tray with hot chocolate, several little cookies, a variety of lump sugars, and some chocolate. Very elegant! Don't miss the toilet seat in the lobby restroom--it turns and cleans the seat when you flush! The breakfast is something to see. What a spread for so few rooms. You really get personal service at this hotel.
My Husband and I spent a wonderful 3 Days in Hotel De Orangerie in May 2004.The staff could not do enough to make our stay comfortable and made us feel extremely welcome. The furnishings in both the bedrooms and all public rooms were second to none. Room 218 was wonderful with at one end a view on to the canal and at the other end a view on to one of the numerous church towers, which had the added bonus of chiming on the Hour the European anthem and on the half hour Beethoven. Sheer Bliss.
And what can we say about the breakfast - Magnificent.
We hope to return again in the near future, and can cetainly recommend it especially for couples.
Fantastic weekend in Brugge!
Just back from a fantastic weekend in Brugge. The Hotel De Orangerie was great. The staff were very friendly and helpful with recommendations for dinner. The room was lovely - not your standard expensive hotel room but decorated with an individual touch. The choice at the breakfast buffet was very good, with high quality produce. The hotel is perfectly situated moments from the main square but tucked down a quiet back street, facing onto a canal.
Recently stayed in Brugge - a beautiful city - at this small, classy hotel. Staff were very friendly & helpful, rooms were gorgeous, the whole atmosphere was relaxing, stressfree, friendly & warm. The hotel is just moments away from the main square, and has a selection of restaurantes, bars etc. around it. Highly rcommeneded!
