Hi there! My girlfriend and I are going to be in Bruges for 2ish days on our trip around northern(ish) Europe in early September. We're looking for neighborhood (and hotel, to some extent) recommendations. We'd like to be within walking distance of bars/nightlife, especially beer-oriented bars, but also cool daytime stuff too(including touristy stuff.)
I'm a huge Belgian beer fan, so am looking for anything relating to that, particularly anywhere I can try the famed Westvleteren beers and hopefully buy some bottles to bring back to the USA (I have heard that it is sold in some bottle shops.)
All things considered, we'd prefer to public transit or cab during the day and walk back to the hotel at night than vice versa.
We don't want to do the party hostel thing - BNBs or hotels with private rooms and bathrooms are necessary, but nothing extravagant needed. I'd like to keep it under 70E/night.
