I've booked to go to Belgium for 4 nights in early April. I'm thinking of staying in Brussels for the first night and then spending the next 3 nights in Ghent, from where I would take a day trip to Bruges. Does this sound like a good plan?

Also can anyone recommend some fairly cheap, centrally located accommodation in Ghent? There don't seem to be many hostels around so I'm happy to stay in a B & B or hotel if necessary and don't really want to pay any more than £50 per night.

Thanks
Becky

Not a lot in Brussels. I would divide my time between there, Ghent, Bruges and pop into Oostende before returning to Brussels (trains every hour).

Fairly cheap = lowcostholidays.
Cheap = hostelbookers, hostelworld, travellerspoint.

The Bon Vivant in Ghent is €25 a night but book ASAP whatever you choose.

Thanks Cyberia. I'll look into Oostende as I hadn't thought of there.

Is it advisable to book the trains in advance?
