Exceeded expectations. Perfect location, nice and central within easy walking distance of restaurants. We had our bikes with us for this trip so the private underground car park was a bonus, though maybe a tad expensive for an overnight stay. Overall very happy with the facilities and would recommend to others.

This is rated as 3* but I think it should be 4* It is right in the centre of he old quarter which is ideal for exploring the city. Ours was only a 1night stay I wish we could have stayed longer. The staff are multi lingual, very friendly and efficient. There's an underground car park which was a bonus.... More

This hotel is in the heart of Gent. Loved getting up in the morning and watching the world go by. The cobblestone streets were amazing. The view was outstanding. The staff couldn't have been more helpful. The breakfast buffet was yummy and just enough to get you started for the day. The outdoor pool area was very comfortable and private.... More

Many thanks for your review, you make me want to come every day (which is the fact :)). The pool will be closed as from Octobre (outside pool, and wheather is becoming cooler), but there is plenty to do in and around Novotel Ghent. Hope to welcome you back. More

Stayed for two nights in this very nice hotel. The hotel was clean and modern with great free WiFi. All the staff were very friendly and helpful. The hotel is in a great location for walking around all of the sites in Ghent. Parking is available on site.

Many thanks for your review. Happy to read you enjoyed your stay. Parking is available but is limited (only 30 places). You can also use public parking Vrijdag Markt a few streets away, but first come to us and drop the luggage. Ghent Center is pedestrian, so car is of no use. Hope to see you soon back. More

Driving to this hotel was straightforward although did seem to go right through the pedestrianised centre of Gent! There is an underground carpark and the hotel has two entrances, both put you in the heart of the town. Public areas were really nice and modern. Room (superior) was not quite the size or comfort level of the best Novotels but... More

Many thanks for your review. For people who like to sleep with open window, we have anti mosquito machines available at reception. I'll reserve one for you, for your next stay in Ghent :). Our Gourmet Bar is specialized with Belgian inspired burgers, but if you like to walk outside, reception has a lot of nice restaurant suggestions. See you... More

Hotel is just in the center of the town. Perfect location, short walk to square and canal with plenty of restaurants. Make sure you do 45 minutes boat trip. Gent was a lovely place with very relaxed atmosphere. Town center was closed for traffic on Sunday, people walking everywhere, enjoying food and drinks. Hotel is very good, rooms perhaps bit...

The location is unbeatable... Truly excellent-- easy access to the city. Service at the hotel is quite good too-- everyone very attentive and helpful. The room was ok-- though by far the least salient feature of the stay - somewhat dissapounting

Superb accommodation (adjoining rooms as family suite made it special). Outside pool in front courtyard. Welcome drink and bar service excellent. 'You must try the local beer - Gruut!'. Breakfast good as always, although very busy and difficult to get around as tables close together. (One of my daughters is in a wheelchair so this made it hard for her.... More
