We were really excited about staying at a certain lovely old hotel [4th fl] which features a tall, winding wooden staircase... until my husband asked, "What if there's a fire?" Now I'm having second thoughts. The hotel owner says there's a fire exit (she probably means the window LOL). Does Belgium have fire codes? I realize the risk of fire is slim, but the thought is in my mind now, every time I think of this 18th century hotel.
