We had a very pretty deluxe room on the second floor, which was very comfortable and well equipped. The staff were friendly and helpful. Breakfast is €20 but the choice is extensive. We chose to take the tram from Sint Pieters Station and had some difficulty in finding our way from Korenmarkt. It is actually very easy but some of... More

Just (a minute walk) behind one of the main squares of the beautiful and historic centre of Ghent. All the nice restaurants, shops and sights are in walking distance. Tip: just across the street (a 20 second walk, if you walk slowly) is a small and casual Italian restaurant with an evenly small menu, but really delicious dishes. If you... More

We stayed in the executive room and requested the one with the old features (bricks and beam) with river view. That was a tip I read on trip advisor! + Spacious and comfortable room, river view, cosy bed. + Just a few mins walk to the square, the location was great. + Coffee/tea available in room - check in is...

The hotel is lovely and it's very central. It is very clean and quiet too. We had a room overlooking the river on the ground floor (20). Breakfast is also very good with plenty of choice, buffet style. The only suggestion I would make is for tea/coffee facilities in rooms.

We booked a trip to Gent literally at the last moment so were a little concerned that we'd arrive and find there was no room (which did once happen to us in Paris!) . Fortunately after an 11hr journey there was a nice, clean and comfortable room awaiting us and friendly staff who provided maps and leaflets on where to... More

If you picked a hotel purely on location then this would be the one. Right by the main area, but tucked in a quiet street with some rooms overlooking the river is perfect. Easy parking as well – Underground car park 30 seconds away (11 Euros a day). We had a ‘deluxe’ room which was a great size – one... More

The hotel is situated within 5 mins walk to the historical city center. Our room was on the first floor with a river view which made our stay even more spectacular. It is great to have the canal just outside the window and watch the tourist boats passing by. The room itself was very beautifully designed, with a wooden ceiling... More
