Beautiful house with nicely decorated rooms, great location (not even 10 min. walking distance to all of the sights), most delicious and healthy breakfast - all at a reasonable price! We had a perfect stay!

We had a great 2 night stay in this lovely house 2 minutes walk from central Gent and it's beautiful riverside. The room is clean and characterful, the host lively, and breakfast generous, at a very good price. We had stayed before a decade ago, and nothing had changed !

Paris and London are so overrated. First time going to europe and while I was planning for some reason I added an extra night to Paris when I shouldve put that toward Belgium. This bed and breakfast is in the central area with beautiful scenery. We spent 3 nights, took a day trip to bruges (20min train) and wish I... More

We stayed 5 nights at this bed & breakfast visiting Ghent for a spring break in April 2014, and the place was everything we hoped for and more! The location is perfect on a quiet street (although most streets downtown will be quiet I think), within walking distance of all downtown sights and Korelei/Graslei. It even has a splendid restaurant... More

Stayed for a night here before travelling to Oudenaarde for de Ronde, we found the location excellent - very central and easy walking distance to the centre of town. The B&B itself was very quirky, with some very homely touches and lots of interesting trinkets on the walls and hallways. A lovely internal courtyard garden would be a great place... More

We booked 3 bedrooms for a long weekend exploring Ghent. The B&B is a stunning building 5 minutes walk from the medieval centre with an internal courtyard,overlooked by the breakfast room & lovely quirky bedrooms (lots of stairs so not great if restricted mobility). Breakfast was fresh & substantial & the welcome was warm & genuine but it was a... More

Just by chance we found this lovely B&B but we totally felt in love with everything here, from the friendly and very helpful host to the clean and cozy apartment. We stayed 13 nights and it was not just bed and breakfast that were provided, it was home. I am strongly recommended this awesome place to you guys who want... More

We stayed here last year, August 2012, it was fantastic. the house had so much character. We went for the Leonard Cohen concerts and found it very convenient. Geertje was lovely, the breakfasts were amazing, she had gone to a lot of trouble to provide really fresh food beautifully presented. We were also able to use her kitchen if we... More

We booked this B&B for 2 nights. We asked for a room with 2 twin beds and were given the room with 2 stories for 4 people which was great. One of the downsides is that since this room was in the upper floor, it had quite a few sets of stairs, which is a little inconvenient if you're travelling... More

This B&B is located in a wonderful building with high ceilings, great details and a lovely garden, on walking distance from the main attractions. We booked a 3-persons room and got a room for 4 people with two floors. The room was fully equipped and nicely decorated. Like the other reviewers said before, the breakfast was superb.
