Got a room right behind a soft drink dispenser machine that makes a lot of noise when working. Furthermore, what kind of hotel even has such a machine at the room corridor anyways? Breakfast is medium-poor, location is not good for a city visit and the firm/soft pillow thing is ridiculous. Room has a lot of space, but nothing special... More

Dear guest Thank you for letting us know where we can better next time. It helps us focus our attention to areas important to yourself and our other guests. I must say that i was surprised to read that the vending machine near your room made noise at night. They operate on a timer because i don't want them to... More

Our biggest beef was that it was very difficult to actually find this hotel; our GPS kept taking us to streets that were under construction and therefore had become one way only...we only actually found the place after stopping at a gas bar and asking directions. Once we made it to the hotel, it proved to be just fine and... More

Dear guest Thank you for talking the time to inform us about your experience with the Holiday Inn Express. We know that there are quite some road works in and around the city. We would therefore advise you to follow directions towards E17 motorway. You'll find us just next to exit 9 H-UZG. In case you do get in trouble... More

Typical Holiday Inn Express. Clean, comfortable and spacious rooms. A couple of minor complaints. The towels are in need of replacement as they are starting to become very thin. The shower is low flow and I was hesitant to wash my hair in fear I wouldn't be able to get the shampoo out. So don't expect a hot strong shower... More

usual high quality of this hotel chain. Close to the gent city center and very close to the highway. Only negative is that you need to pay 10euro/day for parking : you are obliged to pay as there no free parking close by or you would need to park on the highway.

This was my third time staying at the hotel on a trip through Europe. I use this hotel for ease of access from the motorway, good parking and the good evening food. Platinum loyalty status gave me a free drink for me and my wife and 20% off the meal ( including drink ). The food is well above average... More

Stayed for one night on the way past. Very good room large, friendly staff. Restaurant looked good but didn't eat there as arrived late. Did enjoy a welcome drink there. Breakfast has a good range of fresh bakery.

It has all you need if you are on a short stay. The staff is efficient and well prepared. Rooms are clean and spacious. Bed was fine and had a good sleep. Breakfast could be better even though the fruit salad was fresh !!

Stayed overnight to break a journey. It was clean and the service was polite and professional. Bit far out if the centre for a holiday but ideal for breaking a journey. I would definitely stay at this hotel again.

We stayed here for 2 nights as a base to visit Bruges and surrounding areas and we loved Ghent and look forward to returning! A beautiful place to visit. The hotel is easy to find off the motorway and has all you need but I recommend a trip into Ghent. The bus stop is outside the hotel and for 2... More

Dear guest Thank you for your positive review. The Holiday Inn Express Gent offers an ideal location indeed to explore the Flanders region. With the E17 and E40 motorways, you can reach Bruges, Antwerp and Brussels within 40 minutes, the North sea coast and the battle fields of WW I within the hour. See you again next time, in Gent?...
