“Nice hotel in a beautiful city”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2014

It's is a very nice hotel. Very clean, beds are comfortable and the breakfast is great! Even though the hotel is next to a train station I slept very well (it is not noisy). Staff is friendly. The location is perfect when you visit Ghent. From the highway it's just 5 minutes drive and easy to find. You can park your car just behind the hotel and it's just a 2 minute walk to the tramstation. I would really recommend this hotel.

We thought Hotel Astoria was absolutely super. It was close to the train station, but in a leafy suburb a short tram ride from the central city (there is a pretty square/park nearby). The hosts were helpful with travel tickets etc, and the woman who is on duty in the evenings is absolutely awesome, very funny and friendly! She was also a great recommender of beers! The room had everything we needed including easy access to wifi. We would definitely return if we visit Ghent again.

It is a nice Hotel close to the train station. So, I could hear trains passing. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The room is clean and comfortable. WiFi works well in the room. I specially liked the fresh home made yoghurt at the breakfast.

Room Tip: Rooms not on the street side are quieter.

Nice hotel, but overpriced. I would not stay there again. It is a bit over priced. Far from the centrum, next to the train station, so you can here trains passing all the time. The pillows were terrible. Bubbleb bad was great. Bubble bad was great.

By sharing your experiences, you're helping travelers make better choices and plan their dream trips. Thank you!

Nice hotel, small, but very clean rooms. Good value for money. Ideal for a stop over. Secure parking. Ideally situated, just a short tram ride into the town centre. Very friendly staff. Close to railway line, but that did not bother us as our room was quiet and we did not hear the trains.

, quite quiet

Breakfast was nice especially when served in the garden when weather allowed. Easy to find and on site parking. Our room was in a secondary building not as nice as the main house. Easy tram or longer walk to city center. Beautiful city and worth the stay outside the city center. Staff is very helpful indeed.

Room Tip: Main building in the back on upper floor.

We stayed at the Astoria for 3 nights and were very happy with our stay. The staff were very friendly, helpful and accommodating and helped us with planning a great visit to Ghent.

The location is good as it is easy to get into the city and also to get to the station if you want to visit Bruges, Brussels or Antwerp. (Bruges is just 30 mins away). The only down side with being so close to the station is that you could hear the trains at night. To be fair we were given earplugs and with the windows closed you couldn't hear much, but as it was summer we needed to have the Windows open. If you are a light sleeper I would suggest Asking for a room facing the back if possible.

The room was clean, had tea and coffee making facilities, a comfortable bed, good bathroom, safe, mini-bar and digital tv. Really good facilities, my only suggestion would be to change the pillows as they are quite high.

The breakfast was excellent and there was a good selection of continental breakfast options including fresh breads, cereals, home-,made yogurt, pastries, juice, fresh coffee and meats and cheeses. If the weather is nice you can have breakfast out in the garden which is really nice!

Overall a great stay and we loved Ghent, what a beautiful city! Thanks to the Astoria staff for making our trip an enjoyable and memorable one.
