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

Located next Gent Expo this hotel provides excellent travel facilities to the city centre and main line railway station. A very reasonable rate for a Holiday Inn and room was very big. A five minute walk and the tram takes you into the City in 10 minutes. With free parking at the hotel I can highly recommend it.

Dear ReadingHoops, A big thank you for your recommendation! This proves that you were very pleased with your stay. As you mentioned in your review, both the Flanders Expo building as the tram stop are only walking distance away from the hotel. Visiting the historic city of Ghent is easy since the tram gets you there in about 15 minutes.... More

We stayed here as part of a coach trip to the Christmas markets, and has without doubt been the best hotel we have stayed in as part of these trips. The arrival was organised and smooth, with porters to take your bags to your rooms. The rooms were reasonably sized, clean and functional. We had a problem with our hairdryer,... More

Good rooms, friendly staff, boring restaurant, functional bar, very near to tram station. What can be better: few english channels on TV. For me it's the convenience to work place, can walk if the weather is good.

Nice hotel, with all modern amenities. Friendly staff specially at front desk. Average rooms, poor bed's, but good sound isolation, internet signal was poor also. Above average breakfast. In general a good hotel to stay for business proposals. Near the Flanders Fair, Tram and highway. Good park for cars.
