Quaint Hotel Across from the Railway Station
Posted Jan 28, 2016
Grande Hotel De Flandre, was literally just across the street from the railway station. The elevator from the ground floor to reception was a tiny thing, about the size of a closet. It had a regular door, like you would use to enter a room. When the light turned green, you opened it manually. There was no inner door to the elevator car, and so you could see the wall of the shaft scrolling by. After checking in, we took the elevator up a couple more floors to our room. It was snug, but there was nothing wrong with it. The hotel is part of the Best Western chain, of all things. Thus, the pens and stationery all had the chain logo on them. That was disappointing in an amusing way. Who wants to go to Europe and come back with Best Western stationary? The breakfast was good, with enough variety to accommodate most ideas of breakfast.
