We visited Ghent the second time, on our way to England and we were not disappointed. We knew about the Ghent Music festival so we parked somewhere else (about 15 minute walk). It was quite busy in the city center. We arrived early coming directly from Leuven and our room wasn't teady yet so we left our luggages and went... More

We stayed with a couple of collegues for a conference in this hotel. We had chosen it for it's central location. And that can not be beaten. It's right in the middle of Ghent. Our rooms were on the side of the hotel so no city noise whatsoever (which probably is not always the case when there are festivities in... More

Second time we have been in gent. This time we tried Novotel. Its not a luxury place, but its nice, clean, servicemindedand in the middle of the citycenter. Beware that the parking cellar is small and narrow if you have a little larger car. But overall its okay!

Many thanks for your review. Our parking is limited to 30 places, but nearby there is public parking Vrijdagmarkt. Eventually you can come to the hotel to unload luggage and park the car in the public parking. No need of a car in Ghent, city center is full pedestrian. Hope to welcome you soon back at Novotel Gent Centrum. More

This was a really pleseant stay at Novotel Gent Centre. The room was like any Novotel, but the rest of the hotel was very unique. The lobby and the outside dining area as well as the outside pool was very nice.

Room is quite small and feels a bit old. However it is clean and the bed is good. Breakfast is nice, with plenty of choices. The hotel is located in the center of the town, so that is quite convenient. The staff is not very engaging or friendly, but also not rude, basically quite detached. All in all a nice... More
