A typical Holiday Inn. We use these hotels for a few nights' stopover on business trips. This particular one was well situated for our needs - close to the welding school, Flanders Expo and transport, so we chose it for convenience. The room I had was clean, and everything worked ok. Sadly my neighbours were very loud until early hours... More

NYC hotel with good connectivity via tram and buses.. I stayed there for 2 nights and enjoyed the hospitality. I only tried the breakfast which was good... WiFi connectivity was also decent and room service was very prompt.

We stayed at the Holiday Inn Gent Expo as it was conveniently located to Gent and Oudenaarde where we were to watch the Ronde van Vlaanderens cycle race. The hotel is located next to the motorway although there is a slightly complex road layout to reach it which might confuse some. If you arrive by car, you will need to... More

Stayed recently on a stop over on the way to Holland. Hotel is quite nice although very quiet during our weekend stay. Our only problem was hot food not available until 18.30 which didnt work with kids. However was sorted out after a couple of calls. Breakfast was very good and reception team very helpful. We have stayed before and... More

The beds and pillows were comfy. Hotel did the trick as it was close to the highway and we were just stopping over from a late night channel crossing. It was slightly tricky to get too as you go around in a spiral to get to it. This hotel could do with a bit of an upgrade as it looks... More

I had never been to Belgium and everyone had told me that Bruges was beautiful. So I decided to book a weekend away for valentines. Being a platinum elite IHG member, I always look for a holiday inn, and this was the nearest, as we were driving, that was fine - about 25 mins from Bruges. We stopped in Bruges... More

Nice clean hotel, very good staff, great service and great position for the expo centre and direct tram links. Only downside is that there is nothing except for the hotel and IKEA in this area. No shops, no bars, no restaurants.. So your choice for dining is either the hotel restaurant or meatballs in IKEA. For the convenience of the... More

This is our corporate hotel of choice. Business relations and foreign colleagues typically stay here because of its proximity to our offices. I tend to stay here myself sometimes after late night meetings or prior to very early morning meetings as it is convenient. We have specific agreements with the hotel, so of course I do enjoy free parking, which... More
