We spent a long weekend here with friends from the UK and enjoyed it very much. Brilliant location to discover the lovely old centre of Ghent, rooms maybe not very large, but clean and well layed out. Staff very friendly and helpful, a breakfast buffet with a good variety, in short: a very pleasant stay and excellent value for money.

We arrived in Ghent on the opening Saturday of a music festival we knew nothing about. The police would not let us anywhere near the hotel in the car we had to park (15 minutes maximum) and walk to reception. I was very worried that I would have to leave my husband who had fallen ill on our trip and... More

Okay - we had two nights here and enjoyed a very comfortable stay. This Ibis is not without its faults but then you remind yourself how much you're paying and it's quite easy to let them go. One thing that is indisputable is the location. As the name suggests it's actually set on a beautiful square and almost touching distance... More

The hotel is in the middle of the pedestrian area in the centre of the city which makes it difficult to get to especially with sat-nav, not helped by some roads being closed. However, the location is also the best thing about the hotel - it is just opposite St. Baafs Cathedral and right in the centre of town, with... More

This hotel should have at least 3 stars, is very nice and very clean. A little bit noise if you stay on rooms from street view, but was acceptable. The breakfast is very good and with a lot of choices. I stay for a week with business plans, but I will recommend it for other activities, because is very close... More

The hotel is right next to the st.Bravo's Cathedral.We were lucky to have a room on the corner with view to both the Cathedral and the Plaza,so the view was absolutely fantastic.The rooms are the usual at Ibis,nothing special.There was a strange smell at the bathroom though, like wet dog.... The breakfast is very good.(ham,cheddar,beans,scrambled eggs,sausages,croissants,various types of bread,cucumber,tomatoes,cereals,yogurt)

This hotel overlooks the cathedral and main square in Gent, so it's a very handy location but noisy (especially the rooms on the front). Get a room at the back of the hotel. The beds are very comfy. The number 1 tram goes to and from St Pieters station. There are some good breakfast places nearby - e.g. Le Pain... More

This is our 3rd visit to this Ibis, I always have a good nights sleep there. I am quite particular about my bed. We visit here in the last 2 weeks of July as the Rock concert by the Hotel so 120' away and the Spanish concert down by the canal about 1/4 mile away are excellent and all free... More

I have lost count of the number of Ibis hotels I have stayed in throughout Europe but the Ibis GentCentrum St Baafs Kathedraal will remain memorable for its superb location. It is located on the corner of an impressive plaza and is the perfect base from which to easily explore on foot the fascinating historic centre. As with a number... More

this ibis hotel is like many others. location is superb for city-tripping. room was fine. breakfast in my opinion at €14 is overpriced. breakfast room staff could be more gentle and communicative, but the receptionists were excellent. ibis used to have fresh-orange juice machines, but it wasn't available here. also no coffee/tea-maker in the room. free wifi in the room...
