Visited Alphabed in March 2015 for 2 nights. This place oozes with style for those who like to opt out of the mainstream. An old building, stylishly decorated and spotlessly clean. Lovely breakfast and use of kitchen facilities in a perfect, central location. What more could you ask for? Couldn't recommend it highly enough. The owner was very accommodating and... More

We arrived mid afternoon to find that gaining entry required us to phone the owner but we did not have a mobile phone; the house is on a back street and no-one was around because it was a public holiday. Fortunately two other guests appeared then and lent us their mobile phone, so we were able to get in. We... More

Had to stay over in Gent for business and found this place. The outside of the building needs a little fixing but the inside is really very nice and cute! My room was large and full of light, enjoyed a bath after working all day... The breakfast was very nice as well, unfortunately I had to leave early so couldn't... More

A group of four of us stayed here in May. The rooms are very updated and clean. Owner is super nice and willing to provide you with any information needed about the city. The breakfast was amazing!!!! Freshly squeezed orange juice, fresh bread, eggs cooked to your preference and sweet fresh cut fruits. Defiantly one of the best B&Bs I've... More

The loft suite is definitely worth the money, a lovely space with a patio and a view of the church spires. Breakfast is delicious and the facilities are great. The decor is modern with some antique items and is very well presented. The bed is super cosy too! We had a very warm welcome and really enjoyed our stay!

My family stayed at Alphabed for 2 nights in August. We had 3 rooms. Some elements were excellent others OK. The B&B is in a great location a short walk from a reasonably priced underground car park and the centre of Ghent. The B&B has 5 rooms and we had numbers 2, 3 & 4. When booking the B&B I... More

Booked via booking.com and called on the way to Ghent to ensure we had the procedures for check-in down. The owner gave us the main door code, let us know that our keys where in the door, fill us in on the info for breakfast, and have us tips for parking. For 95€ this place was a steal. Breakfast was...

The hotel does not look as much from the outside but the owner is very nice and every morning there is breakfast down in the hall where he personally serves you your food. It has the real holiday feeling. The location is great. The only downside is that it is quite sound;)

This is a lovely place to stay in Ghent. Centrally located to the historic part of Ghent but a tram ride from a station which isn't so centrally located. When contacted Marc gave us the access code for the room which had been prepared for us and a key to let us in and out. The room had a balcony... More
