We stayed in one of the superior rooms we where 2 adults and one 7 yrs old, the room was nice but when the sofa bed is out there is hardly any room left. It was clean and beds were comfortable and location was great for sightseeing around Gent as well as shopping and dining!

Stayed one night here with the family (double bed and sofa bed) and recommend this hotel. As others have said, it is quite hard to find due to the one way system and roadworks in the centre so on approach coming from the north rather than south is easier otherwise you end up going around in circles in the narrow...

We stayed at this hotel as a special treat for our 33rd wedding anniversary. the hotel is situated in the centre of the town and is within easy walking distance of all the shops bars, restaurants and attractions. In my opinion the hotel is a very basic 4 star Hotel which charges extra for most things including bottled water. we... More

I have just returned from a 2-night stay at the Novotel and have to say that I left feeling somewhat underwhelmed. It didn't get off to a great start with the check in taking over 30 minutes on account of there being one member of staff on the desk at what you would think is a busy time (6pm on... More

We will be coming back as had a really great view from our room of a cathedral. room... More

We picked this from the reviews we read and we were not disappointed. It's right in the middle of what you need to go in Ghent. There is a Carrefour Express nearby. The receptionist was great. Each one helped us with the train schedule in each morning we planned for our daily trip.

My girlfriend and I stayed in Novotel Gent in February 2015. The hotel has great service, friendly staff. We received an upgrade after my initial request for a bath tub was not noticed during first check in. After we turned back from the room they solved it immediately and gave us a great family room facing the shopping street. Breakfast... More

A quick stay in Ghent with the family to see the city. The hotel is a great location for walking to all the sights. Staff were super helpful with recommendations and reservation helpfulness. We did not eat in the hotel since there were lots of local place nearby for dinner & breakfast. There was a club outside the hotel and... More

Although this hotel is centrally located, there are not any further positive comments to be made. The advertised services are not available and complaints fall on the deaf ears of indignant staff. The standard of accommodation does not offer good value and there are several other establishments in the area that would be a more intelligent choice.
