No problem with the train station, but because of construction (and ok construction signage) it is a bit more difficult to find the trams/taxis. A bit (30 minute walk) of a way to walk to the heart of the city, but overall a train station with a fair amount of connections running to get you around.

Gent-Sint-Pieters is a well-organized, well-marked transportation hub. We arrived via train from the Netherlands, found our tram and made it to our hotel with very little trouble. We came back and forth through here several times over the course of our stay, and found it clean, efficient, and usable.

This station has a great vibe to it, it has a great mix of architecture old and new and plenty of places to grab something to eat or drink!

Hey, it's a train station. On arrival had some trouble finding the taxi queue, as it is located in an underground garage accessible by a winding path (that was blocked by boy scouts). On departure the ticket agent was a bit less than friendly, and the path to the tracks was not terribly clear. But hey... we got on the... More

It is a little bit worn out, and the platforms not in very good shape, the location a little bit out of the City Center, not really normal for an European city. But it has its pluses, like the being at a crossroad with connections almost everywhere, and having a nice building that should be seen.

As stated by others, St. Peters station is currently having major work done which means that some things are not where they're supposed to be. The work does not appear to impact on the actual trains which ran to schedule. If the reviewer below thinks SNCB/NMBS "sucks" she should try some of our privatised services in the UK.

Like all stations in Belgium very efficient, several eating outlets which were very busy. However it is worth visiting this station even if not travelling but to see the very ornate ceiling of the entrance hall. Very unusual and very beautiful

About 12 minute walk from Ghent Historic area. With connection to Brussels and onward with Eurostar to St Pancras. Excellent network.
