Good quality hotel with decent rooms and bathroom. Receptionist's English was difficult to understand because of very strong accent. The worst thing is currently getting there if you driving a car, there are some roadworks around the tram station and the whole area between Ikea and the hotel is a mess. Parking, which you have to pay for, is of... More

Am sure when it was built this hotel was unique. Now it's tired, very tired and located in the middle of a bizarre traffic scheme opposite IKEA. That said, the staff are amazing, the menu excellent and for a single overnight stay it's not bad. If you can stay in central Ghent. Cheaper taxis, more to see, more to do

I visited this hotel earlier this year and was a little disappointed. I visited it again last month and I am not sure whether it was better or not this time. Interestingly we had exactly the same room as on the previous occasion. Perhaps there are not many executive rooms - not sure. But it is a very nice room... More

Stayed here on an overnight stop while driving from Sweden to the UK. The hotel is fine, a typical basic mid-range hotel with a decent breakfast and facilities, though the location is... unusual to say the least. The hotel really serves the Flanders Expo rather than the city centre in any meaningful sense, and presumably most guests are expected to... More

This is really a three star hotel. Parking is 10 Euros a night and breakfast is 15 Euros per person. The access road to the hotel is completely blocked by construction so just getting to the hotel is daunting. The easiest route initially is to go into the free parking garage for the Ikea and go all the way to... More

Very welcoming staff, 24h reception which helped a great deal with our ferry being 7 hours delayed! Hotel looked very nice, shame we couldn't spend a bit more time there but the manager allowed us an extra 2hours before checkout which was fantastic. Room / bed was very comfortable.
