Oh, I already miss my wonderful corner room! at Brooderie! In fact, I am reluctant to tell others about this great find because suppose I come back and it's booked?
I'll take the risk. My first-floor room was not only big and sun-filled, but painted with my favorite colors; deep red-and-mustard-yellow. The above-the-bakery feel, also, created an ambience of warmth and security.
I am luckier than many travelers because when push comes to shove, I can opt for four-star hotel, though they often leave me disappointed. This cute hostel-like B&B, however, beats many of them out. Okay, you share a bathroom, there's no fridge, and occasionally noise on the street. But in my book, the ambience makes up for any drawbacks. (Plus wait until you taste the breakfast!)
When I come again to Ghent -- which I will, because ohmigad what a fabulous place -- this is where I will plan to stay.
