Hotel Verhaegen is by far the best hotel I've ever stayed in. The building is stunning, the interior makes you feel like you've just stepped into a private chamber at Versailles and the service is impeccable. Jan, Marc and Peter are very nice and friendly, and you will want to spend time listening to their fascinating stories. Kandinsky, the dog,... More

Your every comfort is attended to with style and attention to detail. A grand elegant old building, furnished and fitted with the interior-designer owners' imagination and excellent taste. Perfect for an excursion to Ghent. Minor grumble: one of the owners' sense of humour may not be to everyone's liking.

We stayed here for 2 nights, the perfect length of time to wander around Gent. The hotel is unique, small and the service was charming and personal. The room was lovely as were the sheets and the bath. All things I value. The building is very old and that helps making this such a special place but this also means... More

Two elegant guys own this hotel, Jan and Peter. They are also interior designers. It shows. This hotel and it's small beautiful garden is magnificent. It is like living in an apartment and it's like being part of the family too. The previous TA reviewer who said "take Paola's room" was absolutely right. Everything you need in Ghent isn't far...

Staying at the Hotel Verhaegen was not just a holiday for us, it was an experience. Never before have I felt so much like an aristocrat! We stayed in the 'cosy' room on the top floor, but even that was more lovely than any hotel room I've ever stayed in. The fact that the owners are interior designers means that... More

VERY special place. It does feel like being a guest in a magnificent home. We were warmly welcomed the moment our taxi pulled up outside, given a guided tour of the stunning ground floor rooms and garden, and shown to our room, which was also exquisite. Breakfast was quite an experience, in the magnificent dining room. Service was friendly and... More

Amazing place - eclectic, posh, and a treat to stay in. The property itself is worth a tour; the rooms are luxurious and this is a splurge worth taking. Service is friendly, personal and totally un-stuffy. Feels like staying with fabulously wealthy friends in their historic town mansion. Location is brilliant for all of historic Ghent (what a wonderful city).... More

This is not a hotel or a B&B but an romantic experience you’ve never forget. It was so truly exceptional that words don’t do justice. You have to feel it yourself. This is one of the most special places we have been in our lives (and we have been to a lot of places in the world). We stayed in... More

This stunning eighteenth century palazzo, a stone's throw away from Ghent's beautiful city center, was a very pleasant surprise. The moment you cross the threshold you feel like stepping into a fantastical world of baroque luxury. Combined with modern art pieces scattered throughout the whole building it exudes an über stylish atmosphere but is 'homey' at the same time. Our... More

If you like staying in a historical house a 5 minute walk from the center this is for you, no words can describe what a treat this is ! If you are looking for pool, sauna, fitness room and lot's of activities this is the WRONG place. Also doubt kids would enjoy this but hey you never know !

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
From gilt mirrors to Roberts radios, everything fits within this grandly classical 1770s home. The owners are gently-spoken interior designers who have created a sumptuous blend of historical renovation and well-placed modernism along with certain 60s-retro touches to avoid any sense that you are in a dead museum. The truly dazzling salon and 18th century dining room include original wall-paintings of Flemish-fantasy harbour scenes. Out the back, a neatly manicured parterre garden and fountain-pond leads to a photogenic 17th-century carriage house. ... more   less
