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

When i arrieved in Ghent i had no idea where I was going or what I was doing. I had no internet and no place to stay.. So this hotel was kind of like a life saver for me. I can always count on Holiday Inn express to deliver me the same IHG standards across the world.. So there isnt... More

Stopped here on route to Dunkirk after driving from the Dolomites. Reception area was smart and modern. Rooms are dated and not the cleanest! 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

We used this hotel as a stop off en route to Calais, chosen because it was close to the motorway and had a large car park ideal fro our car and trailer. The reception staff spoke excellent English and were very friendly polite and efficient. Our room was spacious clean and well appointed. The bed was large and comfortable. Free... More

We came to this HI with the intention of staying for a few days, then moving on - but ended up staying for 10 days! The rooms was quite spacious, even for a family of four, and the breakfast well stocked - although became a bit samey after a few days, as there was no variety! The bar was well... More

I was invited for a meeting in Gent which took place in the Holiday Inn Express. Having been in Gent several times before I was a bit disappointed about the location far away from the city and next to a big motorway. Consequently the rooms are very loud anyway. However, the walls are so thin that I could not only... More

Stayed here for 3 nights during a business trip to Gent, Belgium. Low cost hotel with good transport links to the major roads. If you'd like a more city/central experience, I wouldn't recommend staying here. Positives - Good transport links to major roads, low cost. Negatives - Parking not free, no hot breakfast options, bathroom wasn't very clean. Far from... More

Stayed one night to break my journey back to the Chunnel. Location is perfect - very close to the motorway. There is plenty of free parking. Check in (& out) were very efficient. Room & bathroom were clean & perfectly functional. Breakfast was basic but adequate. Overall - very good value.

Location is outside of the city, but close to highways. Staff was very helpful. Rooms were clean. Shower was not very well designed. It's a standing shower, but water came all over the floor since there is not high enough guard to tuck the curtain. There are no restaurants nearby (except the hotel one which is bit pricey).
