We stayed a couple of nights here on a business trip, and couldn't have had a better location, overlooking a couple of the famous towers in the old town centre. I was upgraded to a suite, although this wasn't really much bigger than a standard room. However, it was comfortable despite being a little basic. The free wifi worked well.... More

This hotel is the usual decent standard that you would expect from the reliable Novotel chain. But most notable with this hotel is its location. It is right in the heart of the historical centre of the old town. Parking not an issue either due to their underground parking facility. 16 Euro'd charge for the night, but worth considering an...

Located right in the city center, at short walking distance from the main points of interest, this Novotel is comfortable, clean and very well maintained. Nice bar where you can enjoy a selection of good beers and a restaurant serving generous and good breakfast. Personnel is absolutely nice and helpful with everyone. A personal tip: go to the place called... More

This hotel is in a fantastic location in the centre of Gent. The hotel was clean and comfortable. Staff were welcoming, friendly and attentive. We parked our car at St Michael's cathedral underground car park the cost was €11 for 24 hours. The hotel is about a 5 minute walk from the car park. Gent is a beautiful town and... More

We stayed for three nights in February and had a very pleasant stay. Our room overlooked the cathedral and Max restaurant, so nice view. Warm and comfortable. Desk service was excellent. Breakfast was ok but if you prefer to go out, there are plenty of convenient and cheaper options within a short walk. If you bring the car prepare to... More

Loved the location and quality of this hotel. A couple of minor problems that were easily sorted out card keys not working and spare bed not set up - rang down to reception and quickly fixed. Hard to get to the hotel on sat nav with confusing Ghent traffic and pedestrianised zone, so we parked away from hotel which was... More

Many thanks for your review. To reach the hotel by car, we indicate in the confirmation to put "Hoogpoort 52" which brings you at the back of the hotel. The key problems should be fixed quickly as we ordered new encoders. Hope to welcome you back soon. Regards, Fred. More

I stayed here for a weekend and my stay was very pleasant. Service from the hotel staff was very friendly and efficient. Breakfast was ok. I would prefer to eat somewhere out because there is very nice cafes right out of the hotel since the location of this hotel is perfect. You have also nice view to the church from... More

Bang in the centre of Ghent within easy walking of pretty much everything you might want to do here. Perfect for a couple of nights. Staff were friendly and helpful and the rooms were a decent size. One strange (I know) whinge is that the pillows were a bit on the hard side and hard to make comfortable. But that's... More

Many thanks for your kind review. The location of our hotel is one of the best in Ghent, next to the Mayor's place. Ideal to visit Ghent or to have a funny nightly escape :-). Breakfast is sometimes crowdy. We are thinking about some "promotions" to have a lower rate if you have early breakfast. This could help to have... More

Me and my parents stayed here, it was good and we loved the fact that it was in the very centre of Ghent. Nice rooms (found it a bit weird that the toilet and shower were seperated by rooms, but that was fine) and pretty comfy beds. I slept in the spare bed (sofa?) while my parents slept in the... More

Many thanks for your review. Most of Novotel have a separated toilet from bathroom, which is most appreciated buy our guests, especially when you stay with 2 people or more in the bedroom. About breakfast buffet it has a wide range of various items, but I appreciate your suggestion to bring some variety in the choices. This will be picked... More
