This place is perfect! The location, the space and the owner could not be better! We stayed in the "orange" apartment on the second floor. The apartment is spotless and exactly as shown in the pictures on their website.
We had to be in Ghent for a funeral and drove in from Germany, making our arrival around 10pm. The owner, Ingrid, was so understanding and met us at the door when we arrived. When asked where the nearest parking garage was, she jumped in the car with us and took us there (St. Michaels parking,very close and good prices). She walked us back to the apartment (about 2 mins walk) and gave us all the info the of the place.
This place is brand new! The (remote controlled) fireplace was on to take out the evening chill. The apartment is modern, but comfortable with some great art through out. The kitchen is fully stocked with dishes, glassware, pots and pans. She gives you enough to get started of paper towels, spices, dish soap, etc. She even had a couple great Belgian beers waiting in the fridge as a gift for us. There is a Senso "pad" coffee machine, dishwasher, The bedroom is separate and large. It has all the closet space you could need and a very comfortable queen bed. The bathroom is great too with a large "rain" shower and heated towel rack.
The location for Gent could not be more central (across street from the Marriott) right on the canal. There are restaurants, cafe's and shops everywhere. There is a small supermarket (Spar)1/2 a block down the street, making getting supplies easy.
We booked through their website (www.drabstraat2.be/en). As far as payment, we had to leave a 100 Euro cash security deposit which was returned on our departure. We paid for our stay in cash upon arrival and were issued a receipt. That was a bit scary, but rest assured there is no reason to worry. The owner was very accessible. It's just how it's done here.
We hope to be back to Gent soon and even more so to Drabstraat 2!
