We stayed for two nights. Location; very near to station. Which is great if you're planning a day trip away (to Brugge for example, like we did). Also great if you want to leave Ghent by train early morning. For these reasons, the hotel is well located. But to get to the centre it's a 30 minute walk. It's not... More

i would say that the hotel is quite expensive for its location and services. Prefer it if you want to be next to the train station. You can take the tram to go to the city centre. Nonetheless, the breakfast was adequate and the room clean.

This is a very small hotel, right in front of St Pieters train station. If you need to be close to it, this might be a good affordable option, but I would double-check prices somewhere else in the area if I were you. Rooms and toilets have a very low standard, not to mention the breakfast. If you are visiting... More

Very clean and tidy and peaceful environment. The staff are very professional and helpful. They can give you so many information of the place in and around the city. A... More

Nice comfortable hotel across the street from the Ghent train station. While it is a bit far from the city center, it is walkable or easy to reach the city center via tram right outside the hotel. The rooms are comfortable. The only complaint was that the wifi did not reach the entire room. The signal was best in the... More

OK hotel, clean with good breakfast. Downside was room too hot and window as unopenable. They gave me a fan but didn't help much. Good laocation for main railway station but 30 minutes walk from b=centre or get a tram. Can get busy though. Not much else around hotel. Hotel bar closed.
