We used Leopold5 as a base to explore Flanders and the coast – and it was perfect. Stylish and modern, the apartment was equipped with everything you would need for a pleasant and comfortable stay, especially if you don't want to eat out every night and are happy to cater for yourself now and then. The management welcomed us with some Champagne and were always available and helpful.
The location, also, was ideal: five minutes from the beach, a very short walk to the main shopping/entertainment areas, and a 10-minute stroll from the train station, from where there are frequent services to nearby Bruges. You can catch the Coastal Tram – which is ideal for day trips to places such as Knokke, Blankenberge and Meddelkerke – a couple of hundred yards down the street.
If you prefer a self-catering apartment to a standard hotel, then Leopold5 must be the best choice in town.
