The hotel is right next to the castle and the city centre is just a 5-7 minutes walk from the hotel. It even has its own parking, albeit limited, for €11 a day which is the standard all across Ghent even on the streets. We booked a family room and were in for a surprise. The room is so spacious...

It's been mentioned already in a review below, but it's worth saying again: don't stay in Room 31! There is a large wooden beam going across diagonally from one end of the room to the other, and the bathroom door doesn't shut properly. This is pretty poor considering it is supposed to be a 4-star hotel and I would have... More

The first thing that strikes you about this hotel is the location. Hotel Gravensteen is located very close to the town centre (about 5 mins walk) and right across the Gravensteen castle, which makes it a very surreal experience every time you step out of the hotel. It is also super convenient to reach from the train station (tram line... More

One of the best hotel locations in Gent For a few extra euros a day, staying in the original building vs the annex is well worth it. Great view of the Castle Gravensteen from our room. A short walk to some of the best pubs/beer halls in Gent.

This hotel is in a beautiful old building and has a stunning entrance hall as well as loads of architectural features throughout - ceiling roses, cornicing and a grand stair case in the entrance. We stayed for 5 nights, and it was very comfortable, clean and well kept. The decor is modern european so pale greys, beiges, and wooden floors... More

Great location near the old town just opposite castle. Reception okay, clean comfortable room , bathroom tiling a bit tired but acceptable. Plenty of stairs up and down to get to room, some a bit narrow so be careful.

Right in the centre of Gent just a short walk from the castle and the canal. Free parking and free WiFi excellent. Room was clean and comfortable with air-conditioning in the annexe where the breakfast room is. Not huge but we were only there for 2 nights. Don't bother with breakfast. It is served until 10am and we went in... More

This is a charming hotel one block from Gravensteen Castle and one block from the canal in the other direction. It is right in the middle of fine dining, interesting shops and the wonderful canal with all the old guild houses. The hotel is in an old mansion and while there are rooms with multiple stairs, the staff was helpful... More

The lobby is really nice. Either we had bad luck with our room assignment or the rooms are pretty bad. The door to our room had a strange inch or so gap at the top so you could see out into the hallway. The bathroom door didn't close all the way. There was a giant beam cutting diagonally across the...
