Trips, trics&outfit: The most beautiful B&B

Finding the best place to stay for a city trip can be quite the hassle. I always want the location to be near the center and the breakfast to be proper. But unfortunately that is not always as easy to find... either your have to make a 30 minute travel to reach the center of town or you have to pay over 100 euros a night for a  more central stay. Fortunately Gent is not too big so I quickly discovered several B&B's near the historic center. Since I am a bit of a bargain hunter, I then went looking within a reasonable price range. I ended up sending a message to the owner of the Alphabed B&B and he confirmed to have two rooms available that weekend. Once arrived we were baffled by the beauty of the interior and the perfect balance between antiques and modern comfort. The center was a few minutes away and the next morning we enjoyed a gorgeous breakfast in the living kitchen (a lovely space to spend some time in between sightseeing as well). A win, win, WIN situation I'd say.... Alphabed is a great (and private I might add) place to stay for a city trip to Gent.
