We stayed here with our son in a room (really two large rooms) and three beds. Nice room, close to Art Museum, and really cheap parking (€5.50 for 24 hours). Great breakfast with lovely view out to garden. Bit of a walk into town but we liked this as it's an interesting route, past the Vorhuit, across canals etc. Linda... More

I picked Sparrow's Nest based on 2 things - location and good reviews. I was not disappointed. The location was close to the train and easy to find. Better than that, it was kiddy-corner to a park perfect for a runner like me. It was also very direct to a route leading to the heart of Ghent. The B &... More

I had a nice room looking away from the street. The hotel was very clean. Linda was a gracious and kind host with very nourishing breakfasts. The B and B was clean, close to major sights. I would recommend to anyone spending time in wonderful Gent.

This B&B is located at a VERY busy road and just opposite two equally busy pubs. The local youth (and drunks) will ensured that you wont get much sleep. There was a bad sewage smell in the room, most likely coming from the sink. The sheets were extremely thin and not very clean. On the positive side, the B&B is... More

Sparrow's Nest: If you get a room in the backyard first or second floor may be ok. We got the "studio" in the roof, which was has a lot off space, a kitchen but is not realy stylish/renovated, more a studients flat with rests in the fridge, which was switched off. Additional matraces lying around. In any case not in... More
