Stayed 2 nights. Rooms were clean and beds comfortable. Very friendly staff. Breakfast was good. Restaurant food was average. Nothing else in the area that I saw as far as restaurants went. Quite a ways from city center of Ghent. I had no problems with the wifi.

The receptionist on arrival very helpful. Rooms were ready, clean and in order as per our expectation. We stayed two nights, booked two rooms as we were four people. Wifi not 100% stable as we battled to get constant feed. Breakfast basic but good and as per our expectation. Ample parking around hotel. Good overall stay and would recommend the... More

Chosen for proximity to a Bayer office (my customer). Nice comfortable and clean room. WiFi worked and the food at the restaurant below was very good. Staff friendly and very helpful for my colleague trying to print a boarding pass!

A great hotel near the bus/tram in Ghent. Not so expensive for the facilities in the hotel. Vast rooms and big beds which is so comfortable. The breakfast thought was average but it was a good experience over all.

This is a great hotel. As compare to other holiday inn it's a bit more expensive but that is fully justified by the location of property, cleanliness, exceptional service and surprisingly big size of the rooms. We stayed here due to budget, value for money, reasonably priced parking (10 Euro per day per vehicle). The way parking permit works is... More

Hi there Thank you for staying with us. It's great to read that you had a great time while exploring the Flanders region. Just one tip: we actually do have a very good Brasserie adjoining the hotel. The team of Brasserie D-LYS is open 7 /7 and as a guest you get 10 off your restaurant bill. Even better, kids... More

There was a big fly that had been obliterated on the mirror by the previous occupant. A double is approx 90 Euros with 10 Euros parking and includes Wifi. Its situated just off the E90. The... More

Had a room on the 5th floor, with A/C, which it really needed cos it was over 30c outside when we arrived. The room was Scorchio but the A/C got that down while we had a beer and some food. It was noisy though, and a bit hard to sleep through even on minimum setting. The room was pretty spacious... More
