This small hotel is an unexpected gem - close to many amenities, and reasonably priced. What was wonderful, however, was the management by two young brothers. They provided great suggestions for restaurants, sight-seeing, and helped us to see parts of Ghent that we would have missed. The room was clean and very comfortable. We chose to purchase their breakfast option,... More

Stayed 1 night on cycle trip . We arrived very wet. They were very helpful drying our clothes in their dryer and providing any assistance we required . The hotel is close to the rail station and about 20 minutes from old town. However a tram leaves close to hotel and you can be in centre in 10 minutes. Its... More

Stayed here for 2 nights as part of a group of 5. Really friendly staff, one of the two brothers who run the place gave us some great advice on where to to eat and drink in Ghent as well as allowing us to check in early. Would definitely stay here again, good rooms, good breakfast and superb service.

We reserved at this hotel due to its proximity to the Sint Pieters Train Station, as we were going to be coming by train from Brussels Airport. Due to a one-day strike by the railway workers, we ended up renting a car to get there and couldn't seem to find the hotel. My husband parked the car and started walking... More

We stayed as part of our honeymoon and from our first arrival were treated with care and attention making us feel special and welcome. The hosts are polite, friendly and extremely helpful, nothing was too difficult and they spent time explaining the city and how to get around. Our room was amazing, top floor, open claw foot bathroom and roof... More

As other reviews have indicated the two brothers who run this hotel could not be more helpful and friendly to all the international visitors. Handily placed but a few minutes from St Petiers station and pretty quiet, the hotel is very clean with an excellent breakfast for only 12 euros. I had a large room on 4th floor, comfortable bed,...

The aim of two young brothers that own and run the hotel is to create a personal, friendly, customer focussed experience and they have definitely succeeded. Our welcome was genuinely warm and we were given a quick history of Ghent, supplied with maps and a guide to the ‘must-sees’ over a coffee. We also received practical information such as where...

We recently stayed at this hotel based on reviews on trip advisor and we were not disappointed. This hotel is located with a short walk ( less then 5 mins) from Gent St Petiers and close to the tram stop for the number 1 line. We arrived earlier then the check in time but nothing was too much trouble. We... More

We only stayed one night but wished it could have been longer. The room we were given was spacious, quiet and comfortable. The parking, which we booked, was secure (under the hotel) and so convenient. Customer service was outstanding, and we felt individually welcomed and great information was given about everything we needed to know in the area. Breakfast was... More
