5 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

We have just come back from Gent where we stopped at the Novotel Gent Centrum. The hotel could not have been more central, and benefited from having an outdoor pool which when the weather was hot, like it was when we were there, was very welcome. It also has a large bar and restaurant. We couldn't fault the staff who... More

Centrally located behind St. Nick's cathedral and right next to the modern town market hall, this hotel was great. The room was very large, especially for Europe, with a really comfy bed. Very clean hotel, and it is also nice to have a pool at your disposal. There are 2 entry points, the front of the hotel doorway and then... More

Have to add first of all, I am a fan of the Novotel brand, it is kid friendly, generally centrally located and has great services and facilities. The Gent Novotel does not disappoint: excellent staff, outdoor pool (cold but fun for kids), comfortable bed and well-insulated from outdoor and indoor noise - essential when you need a good night's sleep...

The hotel is wonderful in every way you can imagine: the location is very central, the rooms have everything you need, are climate controlled, and there is a minibar in the room, there is a restaurant and bar, staff is wonderful, and last but not least, there is an outside swimming pool too!

Stayed here for 2 nights having booked through an online booking website, booked a superior room, staying with husband and 2 children. Found hotel car park through careful use of google, you do have to be careful as there are many one way streets but we did find it without any bother. Was pleasantly surprised to find we had a...

I could be really glib about the Ghent Centrum Novotel and say that it's in the centre of Ghent, it's a Novotel and that's pretty much that. Maybe a little harsh, but you won't be able to stick a fag paper between two different Novotels because they all do pretty much the same thing. That all said, they are clean,... More

Stayed here for three nights last weekend for the music festival. Hotel receptionist was good and helpful. Nice outside area for a drink with plenty of seating. Rooms clean with a comfortable bed and good sized shower, although rooms are starting to get a little ragged round the edges. Tried out the breakfast, very expensive at 20 euros for the... More

Great location to start exploring the beautiful medieval city of Ghent. Right in the heart of the city. We got very nice welcome from the staff, check in and out very easy, clean rooms, free speedy wifi. Lovely bar and terrace to enjoy the Belgian beers. Very nice swimmingpool. Great choice at breakfast. Also recommended for families with kids.

Many thanks for your review and your enthusiasm about your stay. Novotel is known to be a family hotel: a welcome gift to the kids, a free stay in parents room and a lot to do in and around our hotel. But of course people without kids are also welcome :) More
