Everything a sleek, modern and romantic Bed & Breakfast should be.

Normally, when we travel we opt for hotel chains like Starwood, IHG, Accor, Intercontinental, Room-Mate, Vienna House, etc. Since it was our first time in Brugge we decided to switch things up, why not combine our WECANDANCE Festival weekend in Belgium with a little R&R in between eventful days at Zeebrugge? You thinking what I’m thinking, Pinky? 😉

Tucked-away in Sint-Gillis Quarter a short distance from historical landmarks (a refuge from tourists) , we stayed at B&B For 2. This sleek remodeled Bed and Breakfast boasts contemporary, modern comfort within walking distance of the Grote Markt.

First impression

Bruges (Brugge to locals), the capital of West Flanders is a beautiful medieval city. We expected nothing less when we arrived at the newly remodeled, sleek, modern B&B For 2. The redesign was done beautifully, from the wood floors, spa shower encased in glass, modern in-room fireplace, and his and hers closets and sinks. Overlooking the pool and courtyard, is the cozy common room stocked with an assortment of beverages, snacks and a shiny new espresso machine.

Situated in one of the coolest neighborhoods in Bruges. Bed & Breakfast for 2 is where you need to be to relax and enjoy the silence of historic Bruges.

I Say Brugge, You Say Bruges

Beer, canals, cobblestone streets and chocolate. Not in that order. Much like Amsterdam, Brugge is enclosed by canals. The narrow cobblestone streets lead to the best Belgian micro-breweries, the finest Belgian chocolates, and exquisite handmade Belgian lace. From Medieval and Renaissance art and history, this small city is only a 2 hour train ride from Brussels and makes for the perfect weekend escape.

Home Away from Home

KING DELUXE ROOM

Our high-ceiling King Deluxe Room was immaculately cleaned daily. A comfortable bed and bedding ensured we woke up refreshed. Individual closets and sinks was perfect for 2 girls, everything was quite roomy even with four suitcases. The shower and tub came in handy after an exhausting day walking around Zeebrugge. Ample water pressure to support the rainfall shower and the jets. Though an in-room safe was absent this was a non-issue for us. Overall, the in-room seating area, fireplace, working Wi-Fi and A/C, Netflix and a separate water closet made for a wonderful stay.

FOOD & DRINKS

Having access to snacks and drinks in the main common room was a plus. This came in handy when we returned quite late from the festival, we especially enjoyed the pitchers of mint and lemon infused water, and found the free bottles of still water convenient to take back to our room. The breakfast spread was always delicious, with various items to choose from. Aside from the fresh squeezed OJ, there’s a cappuccino machine, everything was always fresh. Kate enjoyed the assortment of breakfast pastries, while I appreciated Didier’s offer to whip up anything my little heart desired. My scrambled eggs was delicious! If only I could it eat more!

**Our individual teeny tiny complaints:
1) The towels had a mildew smell.
2) Though we were free to come & come as we pleased, we weren’t given a key.

If we had known ahead of time perhaps this would’ve factored into our decision. Except there was no mention on their website.

Perfect for Couples or a Girls Only Getaway

Minus the part when we accidentally took the wrong tram back to Brugge and made an unscheduled tour of Oostende. A special shout-out to Maxim for ensuring our safe return to Koningin Elisabethlaan. We couldn’t have had a better Girls Only Escape!

Thank you Didi and family for your warmth and hospitality!
