We had a pleasant stay for weekend night with 3 young kids. The service was very nice and efficient. The room was large and modern. I would even say romantic if we wouldn't have the 3 little ones nearby. Breakfast was ok. The best thing is its very very centric location. All attractions are within 5-7 minutes walk from the...

The Novotel Gent Centrum is trying to be most modern. Must slide card key into elevator to get it to work. Haven't we moved beyond this? I much prefer to simply move my wallet across the elevator detector or room lock to get access. In the winter I have to take off my gloves, find the card key, etc. Standard...

We had booked a room with double bed + sofa bed for the kids. We changed this booking to add another night without problem or extra costs. The room we finally got was fantastic. A corner room with small entry area with dining table and toilet leading into a large room with double bed, sofa bed, a desk area and...

Good business hotel in the middle of the historical city. Small but cozy rooms, modern comfort. Clean! Make sure you ask for a room with view to the main square. I did not try breakfast, so I can't quote.

Liked this hotel very much. Nice and quite room witha very comfy bed. Fridge and waterboiler with coffee and tea. The bathroom was top class with separated shower and wc. Breakfast was perfect even freshly baked waffels. Situated right on Korenmarkt near a lot of restaurants and pubs. Would be happy to book this hotels again.

The hotel is clean and the staff is very friendly. However, the rooms appear a bit old, and I've seen better Novotel hotels than this one. I booked the Suite room, but was disappointed about the very small bathroom and boring colors in the bedroom. The living room was nothing special and I regret it to have booked the Suite....

Excellent location in the middle of the city center. Close to anything which is worth visiting and seeing and near the shopping streets. Very friendly and helpful personnel, check-out only at noon - how great is that - breakfast was a feast. Child friendly hotel in any way. We would love to go back!

Our stay was amazing. We love the location of this hotel (very central), views, facilities and staff. Room was spacious with very comfortable bed. Breakfast was very tasty with lots of food choices. We would like to visit again in the summer as the court with outside tables looks so inviting (even though it was January when we visited).

As the center was blocked because of a Christmas market, it was quite hard to understand how to get to the hotel. It would have been helpful if we would have received some instructions in advance. We parked the car in the parking garage below the hotel (€30, which we felt was quite expensive). The hotel looks nice from the...

Dear guest, Thank you for taking your time to share your feedback about Novotel Gent Centrum. We are glad to read that you appreciated the looks of the hotel and the staff at the reception desk. Since November the parking prices in Ghent have nearly doubled. The Ghent policy is to discourage visitors to drive the car inside Ghent, but...
