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.

If you consider to have a comfortable place to stay in Ghent when you have to do many things or trips in and around the city, this is a perfect choice. It is close to the railstation. All the trams and the busses are stopping here, so you can get to any part of the city. You can go by... More

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.
