This was my first business trip to gent. this hotel was booked by travel desk. The hotel is decent. Good part is very good breakfast option, and connected with city by tram facility. Drawback is, nothing is near, like restaurant and market.

We stayed at this hotel during New Year via a coach tour.

If you've stayed in other Holiday Inns, then you'll be familar with their setup. Standard rooms, clean, tidy, decent breakfast and overall a good night's sleep. Well this one does exactly the same as all the others. If anything, the rooms were a little bit dated here and the location is really random - opposite a huge IKEA near the... More

After a long drive up from southern France we eventually found the hotel with the use of our GPS but were surprised at isolated we were. The car park in front of the hotel was like a bomb site with mud and puddles and the walk to the tram stop, about 200 metres away, was unlit in places making it... More

This is a nice atrium style hotel that has a very good buffet breakfast and lots of parking. It does take a bit of finding due to it being in the Expo center complex. It is a few minutes walk to the tram stop which takes one into the center of Gent for Eur 1.30 each way. Apart from Ikea... More

Yes I do agree that even with my Sat nav it can be a bit of a challenge to access the car park on the first approach but a final go around the access road brought us to the hotel so no complaints at all.Upon arrival we received a very warm welcome and our room was excellent.Breakfast is a buffet...

I did read the comments on the location of the hotel, but I thought since we would be driving with GPS, it would not be too much a big problem, but oh boy, it's probably the most difficult experience of finding a hotel ever! The hotel is located 10km meters outside of the city center of Ghent. On GPS it... More

Man alive do they make it frustratingly hard to find this hotel! When you come over the bridge from the main dual carriageway you can see the hotel very plainly, but then the fun begins and you enter the spiral of doom!

Having decided to forego the Disneyland alternative of Bruges in favour of the more cultured Ghent you would do well to stay at this excellent hotel. The number 1 tram terminus is 5 minutes away so getting into town is very simple. The hotel is very quiet and very well run. Both bar and breakfast are very good; we would... More
