Had wonderful service from the staff at the hotel! Check in was easy, quick and friendly! The room was extremely spacious and more than enough room for two people! The bed was extremely comfortable and maybe the first time I've actually had enough pillows. The pool was so nice especially after a long hot day of walking around the city!... More

Stayed here for 5 nights and enjoyed the central location. The hotel itself is as expected, no frills in room although all the basic requirements are there. Breakfast is okay although a nice surprise is a self service waffle maker. Staff were friendly. Over all this is a good choice for a short stay in Ghent but not if you... More

Stayed 2 nights with the family. It was so easy to get around and see the beautiful canals and there were lots of restaurants and shops close by. Our niece loved the outdoor pool and the other kids activities like the X-Box and large screen TV in the lobby as well as other games and activities. Rooms were a good... More

Ideally situated in the centre of Gent, staff were friendly, and rooms were good, however being close to and overlooking drinking places, the noise late at night kept waking us up. On the second occasion we stayed we had a different room which was less noisy Breakfast was very good. We didn't eat evening meals at the hotel as there... More

We had a family room (329) which was huge. Excellent value with good breakfast included. The best is the location, right in the centre of Ghent next to St Nicklasskerk. The outside pool was a bit cool but the kids managed to get in!!!

I enjoyed our stay here. The hotel was perfectly situated, right in the centre of Gent. the staff were friendly both in the reception and in the bar. There is a pool area where we sat outside and had a drink. The rooms were comfortable and clean. An iron would have been handy (I do realise this is more an... More

At the heart of Ghent - it's a great location to be in. The staff are kind and warm and rooms adequate. When we arrived the bathroom hadn't been fully cleaned with the leftovers of the previous occupants shampoo.

I was in Ghent for a conference and stayed an extra day for sightseeing. The Novotel was very comfortable and I had a great view of the Ste Nicholas church from the bedroom window. The hotel is quite businesslike but a surprise bonus was the shady garden and pool area. Everything was clean and comfortable, the staff helpful and the... More

Stayed for one night so take this into account with my review. Booked a junior suite to allow some space to work. Entrance to hotel takes you past an outside pool, not sure how useful this is in the Belgium climate but looked good. Reception staff very efficient and friendly , spoke excellent English . As stated I booked a... More
