“This is a budget hotel so do not expect 5 star luxury!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 18, 2012

This is a budget hotel so do not expect 5 star luxury! But it is in the centre of Gent with secure parking nearby. 20Euro for 2 nights. Breakfast was good with plenty of choice. The staff were very friendly and helpful.Our room was not large but the bed was clean and comfortable. And you do n't spend much time in it on a city break.

Room Tip: en suite if they have any left?

We had an enjoyable stay at this budget hotel. Great location. Clean, bright room. Excellent staff on the desk - very helpful and welcoming. Good breakfast. I would stay again and would book an en-suite room.

Room Tip: Recommend en-suite rather than shared toilet and shower.

When we arrived, there was a very helpful and polite girl in the reception, welcoming us in the hotel. Our room however, was dissapointing. Dark, old, smelly and humid. We were travelling in a group and gave money to one of our friends to pay for the room. She came back very stressed because the money was not enough. There was another person at that time in the reception, an older woman, who wanted 22 euros more for some tax, now I can see somebody else had a similar problem. We had to pay it even though the reservation didn't say it.

Room was small for 2 single beds, but was fine for 1 person. You are in a quiet street, but can walk everywhere which saves money. A taxi can bring you to hotel from train Station for 10 euros.
Service was great and price of 45 euro included breakfast. There is free wi-fi, but not in all rooms, yet always downstairs in eating area. If you get a room on the first floor close to the stairway, WIFI in your room will work. It is an old building and not the Ritz Carleton, but very clean and good staff. My bed was great. Good value for money.

Room Tip: I think all rooms will be pretty quiet. See above re WIFI. It was 32 degrees the day I stayed, but r...

The room was basic but nice. The hotel is very close to the parking (10€ per day) and to the city center in a quiet road. Breakfast was good. Staff very helpfull and kind so...good choice! Unfortunately I have to say that the room wasn't very clean...

This place was disappointing. Ghent hotels are expensive. This was a budget option, and so we were not expecting very much. But the bathroom smelt dreadful, like an ill-maintained men's public loo, there was black mould in the shower (although we had a three-night stay, I only showered once as it was so unpleasant), the shower would not drain because there was a build up of someone else's hair in the plughole. At some point the loo had been replaced and the lino where the old one had been removed from had not been replaced, so there were exposed wood boards under the loo. The towels are the smallest and thinnest I have ever seen, and they meanly refuse to clean them during your stay "for environmental reasons", supposedly. The floors in the bedroom are of linoleum (not v cosy) and they were dusty and my husband and I were disinclined to walk on it without shoes on. The bedding was heavily laundered in bleach and was entirely unpleasant to sleep in. By contrast the common areas are relatively nicely maintained, the breakfast was fine, and the staff helpful. But that was just irritating as it showed that they did know how to do things right, but were simply choosing not to in our room! The redeeming factor was that it was located well within the city. However, I have backpacked and stayed in better hostels in Morocco than this place. Bar a single experience in a hostel in Agra, India, this is the worst accommodation I have ever paid for. I would recommend spending more in Ghent to get a more enjoyable stay. Budget shouldn't equal borderline rough, but at this place it does.

Difficult to find a decent room in the historic center for less than 100 euro/night. This hotel, in my opinion gives the best price/quality deal for those who are on a budget. The location is excellent, behind the cathedral, although somewhat difficult to find. Rooms are basic, but clean. Steep stairs! no elevator. Breakfast is included in the price, but don’t expect much. Reception is very friendly and the overall atmosphere is young/backpacker.
