“A wonderful place with all the extra touches”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2014

Awhile since we stayed there, but wanted to come back on here and say how much we enjoyed our stay at Suro. Kris looked after us very well, even showed us a place to get the most delicious chips in town one evening as he happened to be going in same time as us. The room was not huge, but very adequate, comfortable and lots of extra touches such as coifee machine. Highly recommend this place.

Last October I stayed with two friends in Ghent for a weekend and, I have to say, it's the best B&B I've ever been to! The place is very well situated. It is at walk distance from the train station and the centre of the city aswell. Besides, Kris gave us some maps and explained to us very clearly how to go to different places in town.

The room was amazing as well. Really, the first time I entered it, I couldn't believe how beautiful, clean, modern and perfectly suited it was. Comfortable beds, huge shower, hair dryer, shampoo and bath gel, TV, loud speakers, etc.

Last but not least, one of the best qualities of Su'ro was, of course, Kris' generosity. He made us feel at home since the moment we got there. He made us breaksfast -toasts, pastry, coffee, tea, chocolate... anything you want, he has- and talked to us about Ghent, Belgium, and loads more. It was absolutely perfect, and I don't doubt a bit about going back there next time I go to Ghent.

I truly and honestly recommend Su'ro if you are looking for a nice, cozy, clean, familiar and cheap place to stay.

Everything about our stay at Su'ro guesthouse was perfect. The house is newly renovated to a very high standard, the room was comfortable and had everything we could ask for (hair dryer, straighteners, toiletries, coffee making facilities, ipod speakers and a very well-received chocolate on the pillow) and the made to order breakfast was absolutely delicious. Last but not least Kris was a fantastic host and really went out of his way to make sure we had everything we needed! We learnt a lot about Ghent and Belgium through talking to him and he made sure we had all the maps and information we needed to properly explore the city.

Thank you for the warm welcome, Kris! We hope to return again soon!

I highly recommend the Su'ro.

If you are looking for a kind host who is generous with his time, clean rooms, and delicious breakfasts, then you will be very happy at the Su'ro. Kris, the owner, really went out of his way to make my stay a pleasant one. He is passionate about Ghent and took the time to give me maps and brochures, as well as make recommendations on what to see/where to eat when I first arrived. I felt as if I had my own Ghent expert at my disposal!

I had the Sandra room on the topmost floor, which came with an in room shower, and a lovely view of the surroundings. As noted in other reviews, the private toilet for this room was one floor below, which I didn't find to be an issue. A safe is also available. Kris cleaned the room, and replenished coffee, tea, etc., daily - better service than some of the hotels I've stayed in!

Thank you, Kris, for a wonderful stay.

Had a wonderful holiday in Ghent Belgium.We chose Ghent as our base and did day trips from here.
The Su'ro B and B is a brilliant place to stay and Kris the host couldn't have been more helpful. The bus stop is only minutes away and easy access to the centre of town, parking availiable one block over, (4min walk and 3 euro, if required).
The rooms were clean and well laid out, the breakfasts always ample and tasty.
While doing great day trips to Bruge, Westvletern (Sint Sixtus Abby for the beer), Passcendale, Lille etc, it's important not to miss the beauty in the old centre of Ghent.
Big thanks to Kris for a memorable stay.

Room Tip: The Sylvia room has a toilet, and less floors to climb. The Sandra room has a beautiful view, but to...

We spent a night at suro with a friend, and we absolutely loved the place.

When we arrived, the host, Kris, was working at his bar (Bar Italiano, great ice cream there!!), so he left a note with the information we needed and a map to find him.
Once we got to Bar Italiano, he gave us precious information about what to do, where to eat and how to get everywhere in Ghent (bike, walking, buses...).

The room we booked, Sandra, was really clean and carefully prepared. There was even a hair drier, a straightening iron, make up remover, a coffee machine... It is suitable for friends, families or just individuals.

The place is 25 minutes away from the city center, but it's also possible to get there by bus (line 5). Kris provides you with bus tickets (you only pay if you use them) and maps of the city.

Kris asked us what time we wanted to have breakfast and he made it for us even though it was really early in the morning. We had breakfast with him, and everything was really, really good. Kris is the kindest host we have ever met, he takes care of every little detail.

As in many other places around Belgium and the Netherlands, you just have to be careful when going up the stairs! They are narrow and small.

Maybe during the summer I would recommend the guests to bring mosquito-repellent, especially if you like to sleep with the window open.

We will definitely come back to su'ro if we come back to Ghent!

Thank you Kris!!
