While researching an arty little b&b above a corner cafe in Ghent, Kelly stumbled upon what appears to be a lodging phenomenon: super-chic little b&bs everywhere. Everywhere. There are 190 b&b rooms across this mid-sized, medieval city, known for its Flemish influences, cobblestone streets and rows of ornate, Gothic guild houses. Leave your preconceived notions about b&bs at the door. These incredibly well-appointed, tucked-away spots top restaurants, galleries, coffee houses, boutiques, bakeries, you name it–and most of them serve up homemade breakfast for their guests in dining rooms that look like the latest old-fashioned, farm-to-table restaurant in Brooklyn. But not on purpose, of course. Prices? Most under $150 a night.
