The first thing that struck me about this hotel is their reception staff. Although they may are young, they know their craft very well. They are very professional, yet not aloof. I wish to commend one of the male reception staff. Our room is located in the first level, and if one were to knock at the room, it can... More

Hotel Gravenstens feel right, is located right and should be right. But the details is missing. Our spacious room on the third floor was big enough for two extra beds for the kids and the staff was friendly. But the rooms did not feel clean enough, doors and corners could need a fresh brush of paint and the breakfast seems... More

Nice hotel with a good location across from the castle and close to the tram stop. Our room had been recently renovated and the bathroom had a very contemporary look with a great shower. There isn't air-conditioning, but the windows opened and we slept comfortably. This is an older hotel, so expect to have a few steps after you exit... More

Really lovely hotel right in the centre of fantastic Gent. Nice size room, really friendly staff, small garden area for drinking. Only one downfall rooms 51-53 are down some very steep stairs, so if your unsteady on your feet, don't have these rooms. Our friends were in one of these rooms and the staff were more than helpful and moved... More

The best thing about the Hotel Gravensteen is the location, surrounded by the most interesting features of Ghent. The hotel is located along the main canal, right near where you board the canal cruise boats. The Tourist Information office is just next door, the majestic Castle of the Counts is right across the street and many other places such as... More

A good hotel, stayed in room 55. This room was on the 3rd floor (the main building). The building is old, with marble floors. By a narrow lesnitse not very convenient to carry the suitcase, the benefit to me was a man - right =) small but cozy rooms. The windows looked out on the street, if you open the... More

The location of the hotel was perfect for exploring Ghent. Everything is in easy reach. Even getting to the station was easy on the tram which stops a short distance from the hotel. We got there late and were concerned when we were told we were too late to park in the hotel. However, we were directed by hotel staff... More

The location is excellent for tourists. It is basically next to the Gravensteen Castle (also called Castle of the Counts - since that is what it means in Dutch). The staff were very friendly and very helpful. The breakfast was great and worth the price (if it's not included in your room; ours was since we rented an upgraded room).... More
