I spent the last night of my holiday in this hotel, which was excellent. It is a bit of a problem parking under the hotel as its very tight and there are limited spaces, but they let me unload the bags and guided me to a nearby public car park. The family suite I had was very large with a... More

Huge room on the 3rd floor, well equipped, clean and quiet. Car parking underneath the hotel was an absolute boon and worth the €16 for security and peace of mind. The hotel is right on top of the main attractions and Gent's lovely 'cafe culture'. We declined breakfast at €15 and went out for coffee instead. The staff were all... More

Stayed here after staying in a Novotel in Ypres. Drove to Ghent, which is a nighmare, roadworks just get busier the more into the town you get. Mrs SatNav just got more and more angry! Arrived at the rear parkig and had no trouble parking (for 16 Euros a night). One thing is the underground parking is a bit tight,... More

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
