The Koffieboontje is in an old but remodelled building. Expect modern amenities but narrow, twisting halls. The lobby is dull but the service is very friendly and helpful and the price and breakfast buffet were fine. We had no complaints about the room itself, except for the mystery doors and small window. The location can't be beat, right in the centre.
Brugges is charming and especially at night there are numerous opportunities to take great photos of reflections in canals and floodlit buildings.
Restaurants in Belgium are very expensive, whether for lunch or dinner and prices don't vary much from place to place.The only way to save money is to go to the supermarket, which is also a good place to buy souvenir beer at half price compared to the tourist shops. For clothes and shoes, go to Sluis, Netherlands, a few km away, a good town for designer wear at half price. For beaches, try Breskens also just over the border in Netherlands and avoid Knokke-Heist, Belgium, which is a disaster of bad planning, with sterile high rise apartments lining the beach and for several blocks deep, literally touching each other, without charm or a hint of green.If travelling by car, buy your fuel in Belgium where it is about 20 cents per litre cheaper than Netherlands. Also an option is to travel by bike to see the sights. The Belgian countryside is flat with an excellent network of paved bike paths and the Koffieboontje has bikes for rent.
