If you ever plan a city-break in Ghent or a business trip, you should choose to stay in Holiday Inn Express . The hotel is located in a quiet area and you can get to city center very easy by bus, tram or by car. I will start with the check-in, beautiful lobby where you can find a very nice staff, always wanted to help you with everything, staff lead by a very friendly and professional manager. All the Covid safety rules are respected - it is mandatory to wear a mask and the disinfectant is avilable at the entrance. The hotel policy is "We promise that clean means clean" and this promise was kept during the 4 all weeks I stayed there! The room was lovely, super clean with most comfortable bed I have ever slept on and I also love they pillows. Every evening I was pleased to rest in the most cosy armchair. In the room I had also a kitchenette, with cofee machine, microwave oven and fridge. The bathroom was modern and clean. The guys from the reception ware very helpful in directing me to nice restaurants , so I have good food experiences as well. For me, it was like they they thought of everything to please my stay. Definitely I will recomend this peace of heaven to everyone! Thank you Celine Roosen for everything!

Pleasantly surprised firstly with the hotel, nothing special but a great room for our family trip (Two adults and two boys aged 11 & 9). Reception staff very friendly and helpful and great with local tourist information. Hotel just off motorway and very easy to find / drive into. Parking is charged but breakfast is free so evens it’s self out (€19 for parking) and close to a bus stop to the centre (cost €3 per person single). Gent is beautiful and only a couple of hours from Calais we shall definitely be visiting again!!

We had an extremely comfortable stay in this hotel. The staff at the reception desk was very friendly, proactive and helpful. He gave brilliant recommendations for places to eat in town given that their own restaurant was closed that day. The breakfast is hearty and has good spread for everyone including vegetarians. We were surprised to find the option to make your own waffles. They were good too. Overall, I would definitely chose this hotel again if I need one in Ghent.
