Worth a Medal - The Olympia Hotel | 24/12/2008
We have just returned from a lovely, peaceful stay at The Olympia Hotel. It is situated about 10/15 minutes leisurely walk from the railway station and Centre. The hotel is clean and friendly and the breakfast more than adequate.
Bruges is a truly medieval place with lots of squares, tiny streets and beautiful architecture.
Walking is probably the best way to see everything but there are bus or horse drawn tours. We hired bikes and cycled along the canals for a change and it was exhilarating!
Directions to the hotel from the railway station:- Take the Sint-Michiels exit and turn right. Walk until you come to traffic lights where the road forks. Take the left fork(Stationslaan) and walk along until you reach Magdalena straat on your left.
Public transport especially the railway is excellent , comfortable and reliable which makes travelling around very easy. Wonderful memories which will draw us back.
