Stayed for one night in late August . The hotel was situated across and to the right as you exit Gent St. Pieters railway station , only a minute to walk so very convenient if you need the train .We were allowed to leave our luggage in the back of reception as we had arrived early 11 am which was...

Situated on a pleasant square directly in front of the station, this is ideal if you want a decent hotel in such a location. Bearing this in mind, it is a tram journey to the old town. However, trams run often and are relatively inexpensive. The Castel is also close to a very good, reasonably priced restaurant (The Rambler). Rooms... More

We stayed only for two nights in Hotel Castel, but the location was extremely convenient for us as on the first day we arrived by train from Brussels, the next day we travelled to Bruges and eventually left by train to Amsterdam. As the hotel is located right in front of the Sint-Pieters station, it was just perfect. I was... More

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.

Location - Directly opposite to Ghent Railway station across square. We were on fourth floor so no noise issues. To get to town centre turn left out of hotel and follow road to left. 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
