As has been noted in previous reviews, the hotel itself is not ideally located for a couple of days in Ghent, however I found that it was around a 1 hour brisk walk from the city centre to the hotel. It is worth saying that the maps available at the train station only show roads in the northern part of the city, so it is best to make sure that you research how to get to the hotel to avoid wasted time wandering around trying to find the hotel. I would potentially be tempted to take a fold up bike upon future visits given how easy it would be to travel around the city.
The hotel itself is located on an industrial estate (however noise did not appear to be an issue) with the Ghelamco Arena only a short 5 minute walk away, so perfect should you want to watch a football game. The stadium itself is fully lit up at night and is well worth a look at.
I didn't have dinner at the hotel, instead spending the evenings in the city centre, however the breakfast was simple but adequate.
Staff were friendly and happy to deal with any queries. I originally booked through Travel Republic, with the hotel having no knowledge of my booking upon arrival. I was lucky there was a room available, but it may be worth confirming your booking before travelling.
My only gripes were the distance from the centre and wifi itself was a bit patchy. Bar that, I would happily use the hotel again.
