This hotel was great, with excellent service and buffet breakfast. We stayed two nights. Parking was our only issue, and although we had a spot reserved inside at $15 Euros, the 2 nd night, right outside the front a spot was open when we returned at 10 pm. The next morning our car was towed away, as the construction crews... More

We were made to feel so welcome and offered a welcome drink once we had checked in. The staff showed so much passion for the hotel and Gent that we booked a 2nd... More

This is a lovely old clothiers house 15 minutes walk from the centre of town and right by a tram line if you don't fancy the walk. The indoors is sumptuously decorated with high ceilings and ornate original features. The couple running it are professionally qualified in the hotel industry and making a really great go of their first hotel.... More

An excellent choice for Ghent. The hotel has a great vintage character that works perfectly with the city's image. In addition, the staff is very friendly and eager to help and the breakfast delicious! Definitely worth staying.

Hotel Charme Hancelot is tucked away in a small street about ten minutes walk from the centre of Ghent. It's a delightful hotel with 12 individually-styled rooms, with proper personal service. The owners are friendly and so helpful: you are greeted upon check-in with a drink and a chat about the area should you require it, and nothing is too... More

A charming historical hotel, much nicer than 'could be anywhere in the world' modern hotels. Our room was large with a grand antique bed, fireplace, wardrobe etc. The management was friendly. Breakfast was good-continental, nicely presented, also available scrambled eggs and bacon. Would be happy to return.

Beautiful old hotel with great character. Large comfortable room, modern spacious bathroom. Room was upstairs and no lift, that was no problem as our bags were carried up for us. In fact the staff were friendly and helpful in every way. Couldn't have chosen our accommodation any better.

The hotel is a 10 minute walk from the centre in a non descript street. The outside gives you no clues. Inside is a surprise; maybe 50 years ago this would have been a really glamorous hotel, but now it needs some smartening up. The staff were very friendly and helpful, but we did not get the impression that they... More
