From the moment I spoke to Caroline on the phone from the U.K, I knew Id3made the right choice! Very easy reservation and she wss very helpful. We were even happier when we arrived to find a super boutique-style hitel, good Covid measures, clear instructions for checking in and a fab location close to Ghent centre and to the hospital we intended to visit. Super airy and clean rooms, very relaxing, cosy but minimalist! Fridge and coffee/tea machine, warm and fab shower. Our own code to get in and grwat interior design in the lounge etc Maria welcomed us and answered our questions, later sending us WhatsApp details of recommended restaurants, which we tried. This was just the right place for us at a difficult time. Would recommend The House of Edward to holidaymakers, business people and anyone who wants a lovely hotel in Ghent and goid value too. Dankje wel, Maria abe we will return when we are needed at tge hospital again! Maggie abd James x

I will admit the room was clean and comfortable but, when we first arrived we wanted to leave our luggage. We found out the door was locked and you had to phone them to gain access. We did not have a phone so we looked for a local person to use their phone. Not good. Who ever was on the other end of the phone gave us the code to get in to leave our bags and told us check in was at 3pm and said the code will work when we return. We came back at 3:45 and the code wouldn't work. Very frustrating. We had to ask a local person again to use their phone. Finally got in. No one around, there is no lift to the second floor, stairs were narrow. I would not stay here again.

This small hotel ticks the quaint box and location is ok. However, there is no front desk or daily room cleaning service so difficult if things go wrong. You are acutely aware of the movements of everyone else staying in the hotel. Rooms are clean and modern, but, as the toilets are an integral part of the room, make sure you are comfortable with the person you are sharing with!

The House of Edward is a charming place in the heart of Ghent. Excellent location and value for money. Looking forward to experience the suites with sofa bed and kitchen facilities during the Ghent Festival. I believe The House of Edward has more locations. Thank you for the great service.

We have just returned from a 1 night stay at this "hotel" positives are the rooms are spacious and light with good decor and in a good location, however this doesn't over compensate for the negatives. If your staying on a Friday or Saturday night and are in one of the square facing rooms be prepared to get no sleep as there is a nightclub next door that's open until 4am with a constant succession of very loud drunk people coming and going / hanging around until around 4.45am - I don't know how people would manage in the summer when the windows are open! There is a vending machine in the reception - most items are out of date by a few months & the drains of the shower absolutely stink. All in all for the price you pay it's a pretty poor product. It's maybe more suitable for young couples who would be out in clubs all night and sleep all day. Also parking at the front is only short stay so you need to park in the multistory around 5 minutes walk away (if there's space and it's not a market day) personally I wouldn't recommend staying here.
