We stayed only one night in this hotel. The location was fine for travelling into the city by tram, although the parking was troublesome. The room was clean and comfortable, but not memorable. The safe didn't work. Breakfast was nice.

The location is perfect if you want to use the train to travel around since the station is 1 minute way (but there is no noise). To go to the city you can take the tram (the stop is 2 minutes away from the hotel) which takes 10 minutes. The breakfast was very good with several options. The staff was... More

Great size family room, with kids having separate room which was a huge bonus! Friendly staff, good breakfast. Located a little way out from the centre of Ghent, but opposite station and trams so no problem for us.

You can either get on a Tram or follow the tram lines in to town - about a 20 minute walk. Hotel facilities - Reception with... More

Great room, courteous and helpful owners and fantastic breakfast. The bar had a good selection of beers and was a nice place to relax in. The room was fresh and clean and nicely decorated - and had tea and cofee making facilities and plenty of shampoo, showergel etc. The only improvement would be to provide internet in the rooms which...

Rooms are nice, modern and clean. Wish we knew they do not heat the rooms before arrival. We were already cold when we arrived but the rooms were like ice. After an hour of heating on full we were still in coats, beanies and gloves. Would have stayed somewhere else if we knew because this was not a nice way... More

Went a few days to Ghent for a conference. Hotel Castel was in a great location right in front of the train station. There is a Starbucks next to the station and a few places to have a quick meal. Breakfast was included and good. The one thing that really annoyed me about the hotel was that wifi was included... More

We made the booking on-line and obviously we paid by credit card during booking. However, when we leave the hotel, the female owner demanded for payment. We told her payment has been made during booking. However, she said all customers have to pay to them even though bookings are made on-line. She was really rude and picked up the phone... More

We stayed just the one nght in September and recommend this hotel for a short stay. It is right opposite the station and about a 20 minute walk to the centre.We arrived early and were able to leave our bags without trouble. The owners were friendly and helpful and provided a map and a great little book about Ghent to... More

Our reservation at a different place was canceled due to the incompetency of the B&B and their websites. We booked this place last minute via booking.com We were expecting quality way lower than what we actually received, for that it was a good surprise. Although we found all the Ibis chains in the city cheaper after we made the reservation... More
