Everything about this place is faultless. It is in a fantastic location, right in the center, next to all of the landmarks but also surrounded by great bars,restaurants and the beautiful canals. We stayed in the Farouche suite which is beautiful, spacious and elegant. There is a large terrace to have a glass of wine on with loungers- we barely... More

This has got to be the best b&b I have ever stayed in. Our hosts Kay and Christian were so welcoming, it was a pleasure to share their accommodation. The breakfast was superb. Meat, cheeses, pastries, bread, fruit, cereal and a special surprise!! I would certainly stay here again if I was visiting Ghent.

My husband and friend were visiting Ghent for a long weekend and stayed at De Waterzooi. It was, by far, the best B&B experience we've had in Europe. The owners were kind, attentive (without being overbearing), helpful, and knowledgeable. The room was clean, beautifully decorated, and incredibly comfortable. Our room had 2 bedrooms, one with a memory foam mattress. The... More

My spouse and I stayed for 4 nights Oct. 7-10, 2015. The inn could not have been nicer and the owners were kind, sincere, helpful and personable. I highly recommend staying here when you are in Ghent. It is in a great location, it is spotless clean, breakfast for an additional 15 Euro is well worth it.

Just returned from a lovely few days in Ghent. What a lovely relaxing place it is and to stay at De Waterzooi was the icing on the cake. The owners were charming, so helpful and friendly. You have to admire how they have renovated the old church into what must be the number one place to stay in Ghent. I... More

This is the most wonderful B&B in a very special city. We had the top floor (there is a lift) with split level accommodation up into the roof space. On one side there is a view of the church towers and a medieval hall, on the other Gravensteen Castle. The building started life as a church for the castle, then... More

This guesthouse is absolutely perfect. The accommodations are magnificent. Every detail has been carefully attended to. The hosts are a remarkable couple who take great pride in welcoming their guest in a first class manner. In one word, breakfast is fabulous! The location of De Waterzooi is ideal, within walking distance of virtually everything that makes Ghent such a treasured... More

We stayed for 3 nights at De Waterzooi during the last week in September. All the previous reviews praising this boutique B&B are absolutely right - this is a real find in a super location - right on the doorstep of all the sights. Kay and Christian the owners are charming and we received a very warm, professional and extremely... More

Great location in the old town just by the castle. Really friendly and helpful hosts. Tastefully decorated. Nice size suite. Good breakfast. I came on a business trip but will definitely come again with my wife.

I am writing this while we are still traveling throughout Europe but I believe De Waterzooi is going to be one of the most wonderful places we will stay. We booked the Felix Suite on the second floor for just 2 nights and the combination of the spacious accommodations, location, and hospitality makes this a very special place. Kay (rhymes... More
