Fantastic cosy place, patience and good humour! We had all what we needed and very good breakfast. Good for holiday as well as business. Near centrum close to canal and transport. Family house with a lot of cultural tradition. Rooms with charm and spirit.

We have stayed at Big Sleep over the period between X-mass and New Year and had fabulous time. The B&B is in great location, near to the old market (walking distance) and is very close to the station if one wants to travel by train to Antwerp or Brugge. We were lucky as first night we were alone thus Michaela... More

We stayed at the Big Sleep for two nights and wish it had been more. We were in Belgium to experience Belgian food - and turns out that Michaela has great expertise in that area, as she is a food writer. What a gift! Her breakfasts were fabulous - homemade jams, Belgian spread, saussicon (sp?) good baked items, eggs as... More

The place is comfortable, and the landlady is friendly and very helpful, and the location is excellent. We came by car, and you can park outside, and you can leave your car there for 3 euros per day - not bad for a city location. Breakfast is great - just like in the Pain Quotidien. Just book this place, and... More

Great rooms, lovely breakfast and the beds are perfect! The building is a beautiful old house close to the center of Ghent. Michaela is very friendly and makes you feel at home in Ghent. She adviced us some restaurants, only you have to make sure to make your reservations early (that counts for every restaurant in Ghent for the saturdays)... More

Loved this B&B. had a large room and large breakfast. Location is great, just outside of the busy loud area of the town but easily walking to and from. Could not have asked for a better time in Ghent.

My husband and I decided to head to Ghent without reservations and Michaela was kind to give us a room even though she had not planned to be open the week we were coming through. Our stay in Ghent and at the Big Sleep was a memorable part of our trip. To begin with, if you want to stay at... More

We stayed two nights in the Big Sleep in Ghent in May of 2012 while cycling through Belgium. Our rooms were lovely, spacious, clean and very comfortable. Our hostess was outstanding! She suggested several exhibits that we were not aware of, helped with a medical emergency issue and was friendly and pleasant. Breakfast was tasty and plentiful. We would stay... More

We have just returned from a four night stay in Ghent, basing ourselves at Michaela's bed and breakfast which we found excellent. An ideal setting, a short walk from Dampoort station, it was quiet yet only 5 minutes walk to the bustling centre. Our room was lovely, very spacious and comfortable with a view over the canal. Breakfast, served in... More

I already knew this bed & breakfast from 99. It kept the same qualities I noticed before. Clean and big rooms, all renovated, in a beautiful antique house with high walls and wooden floor, with a delicious breakfast in the morning. We just loved the matresses and maybe that´s why we slept like angels there.The owner, Michaela, was always available... More
