We stayed here for two nights this week. We knew the location was not central so were happy with this. We also knew we would have to pay 10 euros per day for parking (this is excessive and should be included in hotel price). Staff were friendly and breakfast was what we were expecting cold continental but very nice anyway.... More

We booked this hotel at the last minute having read all reviews. It was easy enough to find driving from Calais. Our old satnav drove us straight to do the door. Yes you do have to pay for the car park, which is big, but fills up quickly if there is an event on, but remember, it's 10€ not £10... More

Certainly a good value, and the appointments were certainly above spartan. The bed was actually quite comfortable. Overall this property was a step above what one would expect from a Holiday Inn Express in the USA. Check-in staff was efficient and offered some very good guidance for dining in Gent. The morning breakfast buffet was certainly serviceable, but many hotels... More

We are a family and found the room to be huge. Things are excellent. For the same price, the room and its facilities are much better than brands like Novotel. Highly recommended. It would be even better if the restaurant is cheaper - its price is the same as Novotel. Great stay.

This was our first stay in Gent. Found the hotel very accessible. Clean and comfortable rooms. Coffee and tea provided but no milk only creamer. Staff were very nice, two we found a bit brash. Asked about the free drinks for the gold elite cards and the older lady in the bar was very short with her answer as she... More

Stayed in this hotel while on business meeting. The location is ideal if you need to be near the UZ Gent or the Expo. It is right next to the highway which offers easy access to nearby cities like Bruges or Antwerp. Rooms were clean and soundproof but maybe just a tad dated. The beds are comfy and very soft...

Dear Anouck Thank you for taking the time to review our hotel. It's always interesting to learn from the thoughts of our guests. The location near the E17 and E40 is great indeed if you need to travel in the region of Flanders. Brugge, Brussels and Kortrijk are at only 30 minutes , Antwerp only 40 minutes. May i point...

A typical Holiday Inn Express. Location near the motorway. Far from the historic Ghent city centre on an industrial spot. If you need to be at the arena, the University Hospital or when you travel onwards from the Netherlands to France or visa-versa, this could be an ok option. Although there is a bus line from Ghent city centre to... More

Clean room but a little bit older, worn public area, average continental breakfast In general - more as acceptable hotel if you are traveling by the car. If you do not have a car - wrong choice for you - as there is no public transport connection in the near neighborhood. Also no supermarket or shop near the hotel -... More

Despite being difficult to find (our Belgium navigating skills) this hotel welcomed us warmly with a lovely big room, modern and exceptionally clean. We ate in the restaurant that evening due to our late arrival and were very pleasantly surprised about the quality and choice of food on offer. Breakfast was good which a wide choice (although still no porridge).... More
