... and there was music everywhere. Bands were playing 60's and 70's music and in the main squares there were concerts with all types of music. John was pretty impressed as there was also free beer! You paid 2 Euro for a glass and then could drink as much beer as you wanted. Afterwards you gave the glass back and they gave you the 2 Euro back! The treat of the day was Belgium Frites! Translation: double fried chips served in a cone with a ...

Once there it was back on another bus to get through to London to the hostel where it first started for the people who had been on the full 29day tour. Sarah and Ben, this awesome couple that actually got engaged in Switzerland during the tour, had decided they would stay in a hotel that night and couldn't get their money back from the hostel so I ended up taking ...

Belgium fries....another great aspect of this country. Being the super food (in Dan's eyes) we consumed a lot of fries with all different types of sauces. The traditional being fries with mayonnaise.
There is still so much to explore of this little city, so we are thinking we definitely have to come back and explore the brewery, chocolate factories, Flanders fields (war stuff) and climb the Belfry bell tower.
... off for the Markt that houses the 12th-century belfry and the Provincial Court. The Belfry stands proud on the south side of the square. After a 366 steep stair climb to the top of the 83 metre high tower you can enjoy stunning views of the city – for a small fee of course. Definitely something I would recommend if you’re ever around.

We met a couple from the Philippines while we were there and they said that they were finding it really cold. I can only imagine what the temperature must feel like if you are from a warm country! Of course, being from Canada where it always snows, we should be used to it… I say this because whenever we mention where we are from, ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Pand Hotel Small Luxury Hotel Brugge
Romantik"hotel, picture postcard town!!
Was not very enamoured when told by my husband that we would be spending Christmas in Brugge. However had a wonderful time at this excellant hotel in the most glorious of locations.
The service was second to none, and the staff could not be more helpful.
All in all an unexpected pleasure. Will definately visit again.
Wonderful! Beautiful location, great staff, perfect stay
My sister and I stayed at the Romantik Pandhotel for two nights in July - luckily choosing the sunniest and hottest weekend of the year. The hotel was wonderful; when we stepped through the door my first thought was "Oh I am so glad we chose this hotel" and that thought never went away. It is perfectly decorated, homely and luxurious (the breakfast room is beautiful, and I wish I could recreate how airy and pleasant it is). The hotel is located within 5 minutes slow walk of the busier squares, but is on a peaceful tree lined boulevard, and just off one of the oldest canals. I Cannot recommend it enough.
From the moment we arrived at the reception desk we knew that we had made the right choice of hotel for our short break. OK, the room was small but it was beautifully decorated and very comfortable. The hotel is in a small street a few seconds from the canal-side sights but away from the tourists. All the staff were superb and made you feel special - especially at breakfast.
While mentioning food there is a small family run Italian restaurant just around the corner - the Romagna where we ate twice because it was so good and friendly (we went there first because the weather was terrible and it was close!).
We recommend the longish walk along the canal to see the windmills - ask at reception.
This hotel is fantastic. the location is as good as it could be, on a quiet side street just across the road from the canal. It is only about a 20 second walk from the Tuilereen and Orangerie hotels, and in my opinion, in a better location as you do not have thousand of tourists walking right past the door all of the time.
We stayed at this enchanting hotel over the new year 2003/04. The decor is as descibed. We upgraded to a junior suite and it was richly decorated, though on the small side; so I wonder what the standard size rooms are like. The location of this hotel ideal, the centre of Brugges and the river. The staff were very friendly. They even cook your breakfast to order while you watch! Prior to our stay I had e-mailed requests for restaurants to book for new years eve and they organised the rest! Nothing is too much trouble.
We had a wonderful time, a very romantic hotel. Check out the hotels website for more info.
Loved the Romantik Pandhotel
We have just had the fortune to stay at this hotel for 3 days, it is simply a home from home. From the unique AGA cooked breakfasts, to the afternoon teas, and "the one for the road" in the beautiful little bar. There was always either one of the owners or helpfull staff to assist in any aspect of your stay. A definite Jewel in the Crown of a wonderful City break destination. Great Location
Attention to detail on all counts...
A warm and informative (history of the hotel)welcome on reception when checking in and the offer of a drink on the house as our room was not quite ready, are the details that make this hotel outstanding. The decor was beautiful with fresh flowers, scented candles and a fire in the evening to make our stay special. Breakfast was plentiful and again the offer of breakfast being srerved at a more flexible hour to suit us shows the personal attention the hotel gives its clients. At the end of our stay we were personally shown to our taxi and thanked for our custom! Impeccable.
Our honeymoon in Belgium was split between Brugge and Brussels, and we are so pleased that we chose the Pandhotel - it was just perfect!
We stayed in one of the Ralph Lauren Suites which was very nice indeed.
At night we would have our bed turned down and the following days weather forecast and chocolates left on our pillow - at breakfast our eggs would be cooked fresh to our liking.
Along with the friendly and helpful staff, it is these little touches that added that extra special something to making our stay more memorable.
We were made to feel really welcome and will definately be going back to the Pandhotel in the future. Not only was the accomodation wonderful, but the location was ideal, very pretty.
Small, quiet but so, so beautiful
We arrived at midnight and the night porter gave us such a welcome, served us drinks and rustled up some snacks with homemade bread. The tiny bar was very atmospheric. Our room, overlooking the many rooftops of Burges was gorgeous - the bedcovers matched the curtains which matched the armchair which matched the towels. There were so many little touches such as handwritten weather forecasts on our bed at night. The breakfast room was huge and light and airy and cooked to your individual taste on a range in front of you. There was also a beautiful lounge with papers, games and log fires. The location and views were also very special. We could not fault the service or the decor and would not miss a return visit. Perfect for a romantic getaway or for some peaceful contemplation.
Charming hotel in a fairytale setting.
My daughter and I just got back from a wonderful two night stay at the Romantik Pandhotel in Brugge. The hotel is incredibly charming from the location near the canals to the beautiful lobby decorated in antiques. We stayed at four different hotels on our whirlwind European trip and the staff at this hotel was by far the most accomodating. They went out their way to make certain we were comfortable. The breakfast, which is included in the room price, is fabulous and includes fresh fruit, croissants and made to order omelets. We had a standard room, which worked for us, but was very small. If you are going, with your siginificant other, spring for one of the romantic junior suites. You will love this hotel.
