On our host Erik Broos's website, REFERENCE,the room my husband and I stayed in for about 40 euros a night is pictured under studios.
Erik has revamped the site to include virtual tours of the studios and the flats (apartments with full kitchens).Everything will be as pictured; Erik is an honest, enterprising host very proud of his Flemish heritage and Bruges. For those worried about noise from his adjoining restaurant which stays open late - not to worry. We are early-to-bedders and never heard sleep-disturbing noise, as the restaurant is really not that close to the studios and flats which I think are a bargain. Also, I'm sure if you have a mosquito problem and mention it to Erik, he and his wife Marie-Anne will do everything they can to eliminate the varmints. As we first encountered the mosquitoes on our last night and everything else had been more than O.K.,the price so reasonable and the location so convenient,my husband didn't mention it at check-out, for our host had just obligingly checked for us all details for our Oostende-Dover-London connections.
From journal Bruges is beautiful
