I'm in full agreement with inloveandtravelling's review. A well located hotel, with everything we needed - garage parking a special benefit but as there are only 2 garages booking well in advance is likely to be essential. What I didn't realise when I booked our 2 rooms in mid-March was that the Ghent Festival started the very night we stayed.... More

All in all I think this hotel for being 'family' owned, could not be better, especially for this prices. When we came to the hotel, we met the owner, who is a nice lady, very helpful and polite. The rooms are much bigger then I expected, the bathroom is big as a room in some other hotels. We reserved a... More

Not a huge amount wrong with this hotel, but for me at least this a 3 or at a push 4 rated hotel. Well located, helpful staff and a nice breakfast. Huge rooms, let down by some poorly fitted and maintained fixtures and fittings. Note that the stairs to the accommodation are very steep - not a problem for us,... More

Very nice location and good service, but our room was average. Very nice staff helped us make a reservation at an excellent restaurant. Further on she helped us finding the touristic centre and helped and advised us to find a parking spot as theirs was full and we forgot to make a reservation. The Cathedral is a 5 minutes walk,...

We stayed in room number 1 and it was great! A very spacious room, silent, perfect bed, nice shower and really close to the city center. And we didn't pay much, we got a promotional price. Breakfast was awesome! Attention: no elevator.

My other half booked the hotel for our two night stay so I hadn't seen any reviews, and was a little apprehensive when we first arrived. The decor is a little outdated but the room was spotlessly clean, with a great shower, and breakfast was just the continental style we needed before two meals out each day ! The manageress... More

A fairly short walk from Dampoort station and from the old town, this hotel is ideally situated. My room was quiet. I had requested a room at the back of the hotel and this was given. It does mean that there was nothing to see out of the window but I was happy with that. The room was clean and... More

The receptions closes at 10.00pm but no problem as tgere are plenty of bars around is you fancy a drink. Hotel very... More

We stayed there from the 1st of January for 2 nights. The hotel has 8 bedrooms and we had room number 6. Nice, big room, totally renovated. The breakfast was very good and fresh. The reception was not often open, but with a key for the outside door, that was not really a problem. Very quiet, warm, clean room.

Hotel room a little tired, socket hanging off the wall, wobbly toilet but overall nice and very clean. The receptionist was lovely, very polite, helpful and very knowledgeable of Ghent and the surrounding area. We asked for extra pillows on our first evening and they were on the bed on our return. The breakfast was included in the package we... More
