Belgium Update

Some more details on flights, possible hotels, and trains etc, in this Word document. Belgium 2010 

Note: the preference from people travelling seemed to be for hotels in the 50-70 euro per night range, cheaper than the sample hotels in the document. That’s fine by me, we will proceed on that basis!

If anyone has ideas about trips/events/things to do while in Belgium, do let us know!

    Hi, I’ve just booked the flights (6:50 one).EUR 101 now.

    I also checked hotels. First of all we need to hurry up with bookings! In some attractive hotels just several rooms left. Let’s meet again in January, discuss our preferences and make our reservation. At the moment I would reccomend Ibis Gent Centrum Opera Hotel: EUR77 per single room per night (double/twin rooms about EUR90).Located in the commercial and historical centre of the city.Guests opinions: clean, cheap, simple, smart etc.Tram stop on doorstep – 10mins to railway station.

    Tony’s plan to penetrate Ghent on Friday, play match and visit brewery on Sat, Bruges on Sun -looks perfect.

    Certainly, if hotels are filling up, we can try and book in early January. I’ll ask Stephan for recommendations too.
    Thanks Lukasz

    I sent some info to Tony (Ibis Centrum isn’t bad at all : good location, not too expensive and about the cheapest if you want to stay together).

    Since I’m planning to stay in Ghent too, I can book a very nice (and cheap) Turkish restaurant for friday evening.

    Have also booked flight for around same price as lukasz.have price some hotels in ghent between 75 and 95 euro.however if we group book we can get a bit off a discount.most hotels seem to be with 5 to 10 mins of centre of ghent which is ideal if we want to go sightseeing.However if we are going to group book we would want to do it soon to avail off group discount what do you think regards Leon.

    I’ll contact Stephan about booking a hotel this week. The consensus seems to be around a hotel for under 90 euro per room, sharing. I will have to get numbers however. So far, leon, James, Lukasz, Stephan (he’ll join us in Ghent for the weekend), myself, Jack, Peter Lynch, are definitely going – I think another 3 or 4 are possible (Andrew, John, Una maybe ?)

    I’ll put a posting up about it now!
