“Oke hotel, not outstanding”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2014 via mobile

We stayed only one night in this hotel. The location was fine for travelling into the city by tram, although the parking was troublesome. The room was clean and comfortable, but not memorable. The safe didn't work. Breakfast was nice.

Stayed May 2014, traveled as a couple

The location is perfect if you want to use the train to travel around since the station is 1 minute way (but there is no noise). To go to the city you can take the tram (the stop is 2 minutes away from the hotel) which takes 10 minutes.
The breakfast was very good with several options.
The staff was always friendly and helpful.
The internet was one of the best I ever had.
The room was clean and cozy.

Great size family room, with kids having separate room which was a huge bonus! Friendly staff, good breakfast. Located a little way out from the centre of Ghent, but opposite station and trams so no problem for us.

Location - Directly opposite to Ghent Railway station across square. We were on fourth floor so no noise issues. To get to town centre turn left out of hotel and follow road to left. You can either get on a Tram or follow the tram lines in to town - about a 20 minute walk.
Hotel facilities - Reception with friendly staff, lift to all four floors, bar/restaurant with a good selection of beers and other drinks.
Rooms - Well decorated, warm, Tv with local channels, lots of little bottles with shampoo etc, plenty of hot water, frdge, hair dryer, Tea & Coffee.
Breakfast - Scrambled egg, Bacon, bolied eggs,cereals, breads, cold meats, good selection of cheese, juice and hot drinks.
I travlled with my wife and two other couples and we had no complaints at all - I would recommend this hotel.

Great room, courteous and helpful owners and fantastic breakfast. The bar had a good selection of beers and was a nice place to relax in. The room was fresh and clean and nicely decorated - and had tea and cofee making facilities and plenty of shampoo, showergel etc. The only improvement would be to provide internet in the rooms which would be consistent with most other hotels.

Rooms are nice, modern and clean. Wish we knew they do not heat the rooms before arrival. We were already cold when we arrived but the rooms were like ice. After an hour of heating on full we were still in coats, beanies and gloves. Would have stayed somewhere else if we knew because this was not a nice way to finish a day spent out in cold watching spring racing. Had looked so forward to relaxing in warm hotel room. Breakfast was excellent and everyone happy with fresh coffe and hot chocolate. Hotel is opposite train station but not much noise. All staff were friendly and professional. For dinner we went to brasserie 2 mins down the road on the corner and it was very nice - good food, good service and nice and warm after escaping our icy room.

Went a few days to Ghent for a conference. Hotel Castel was in a great location right in front of the train station. There is a Starbucks next to the station and a few places to have a quick meal. Breakfast was included and good. The one thing that really annoyed me about the hotel was that wifi was included in the fee but in order to get a decent wifi I had to be next to the room's door because the signal was so poor everywhere else, this is very important to me since I need to keep communicated or work online. If you have no need for internet I would say it's a pretty good place to stay.

Room Tip: If you care about internet don't take any room on the 3rd floor
