Lovely hotel great location, great price. We arrived late and had no problem ordering a meal. The food was good and if anything cheaper than surrounding bars. There was also a reasonable range of Belgian beers, including the local brew. Or son was peased to have UK TV too! Our only problem was finding it. Ghent had roadworks and is... More

OK, so it is only a Novotel, and the accommodation is absolutely 'Novotel like', but for a 4 day stay here on business, it was perfect. Centrally located (drive there at your peril, park in the exceptionally tight garage with even more shredded nerves). Great bar. Even has a (small) pool. Easy to walk out to restaurants nearby, including the... More

We stayed in room 311, which is under one of the arches you can see in the front of the hotel. The room was huge and the windows go right to the top of the arch, giving really good view of the church on the other side of Goudenleeuwplein. The hotel is very clean and comfortable and is located right... More

We stayed here in July 2014 but didn't realise until we got there, that there was the biggest free music festival in Europe being held in Ghent for 5 days! Evidentially this is an annual event so if you dont like thousands of people everywhere I wouldn't recommend that you visit Ghent at this time, also because there were so... More

Stayed here with my two pugs, Steve and Ramona. It was a great location, tucked away between a main square of sorts and a shopping street that is primarily pedestrian. Very quiet despite being 100 meters away from the week long annual street festival going on when I was there. It has a pool and a decent restaurant, though not... More

The hotel is right in the city center, everything within strolling distance. Perfect for a weekend. Save private parking, nice room, great shower, good breakfast and on hot days you can cool-down in the pool. Gent is a perfect city for shopping, sightseeing and nightlife, visit the Belfry/Belfort, St Bavo's Cathedral, ..., ..., and finish the day at the restaurant... More
