The staff in La Ducale were extremely friendly, helpful and accommodating. The 'comfort room' was clean and very comfortable. It is within easy walking distance of the centre and the number 24 tram takes you straight from the train station to the hotel. The breakfast was simple but tasty. The tram can be heard from the room and although it... More

We went to gent for a night clubbing a group of girls.The apartment was clean and great value for money, very spacious although we could not figure out how to use the wifi, The breakfast box was small for 5 people but overall the apartment was great value for the price.

Avoid at all costs. Broken dishwasher, broken curtain in main room and no curtains in bedroom, broken toilet seat, bulbs out in bathroom, broken tv, whole building smells of drains, toaster kept shorting out the whole apartment, very noisy. Worst of all, the proprietor was exceptionally rude and aggressive when we complained about the above and told us he would... More

We stayed in one of the more expensive apartments that accommodates 4 people. I can't say anything too terrible about the apartment itself. It wasn't bad considering the price and the central location. However, the owner seemed to dislike me because I mentioned that they misadvertised the price of the parking (it was 10euro and not 2.50). There were some... More

So we spent 4 nights in the Ducale for a long weekend in Ghent. The owners are very friendly and overall we are very pleased that we stayed there. We stayed in the comfort room, and the bed was really comfy, and it was very quiet at night. The location is spotless, you are about a 5 minute walk away... More

My husband and I spent 1 night at La Ducale in September 2012. This B&B is very centrally located, and provides a good value for the price. It is easy to miss - we walked by a few times before we noticed the bell and the little sign beside it. The owner is a very nice lady, helpful and cheerful.... More

We rented a room at this B&B. A local friend luckily took the trouble of doing a 'pre-inspection' of the room and, not being satisfied with the standards of the rooms, reported to us that he had re-negotiated for us to be given an 'upgrade' instead, one of the apartments the owners 'renovated' - read "make look good at first...

We were spending one night in Ghent for a reunion and La Ducale was about the only reasonably priced accomodation we could find. The location was great, very central. The beds were not made up when we arrived but as we were early it didnt matter but when we returned at 6pm to shower before dinner the beds were still... More

After annoying slow train journey from bruges we arrived in gent, pie eyed from the night before. We took a taxi from the gent station to the hotel which cost 10 euro between 3 of us, which in general consensus was deemed reasonable value by the group. On arrival to the appartments/hotel/B&B we walked in and up some stairs and... More

Last week I stayed in La Ducale for one night, and though I have travelled to many poor countries, I never slept in such dirty sheets as in La Ducale. I choose La Ducale because it is really in the centre of Ghent. The location is just perfect. That is not the case for the accomodation, though it has just... More
