The staff at the Erasmus made us feel very much at home. We had the key to the front door and could come and go as we pleased. The furnishings of the rooms are old fashioned; some would even refer to them as being antiques. Yet, in spite of it being in an old building, everything somehow works well. The... More

Like vintage cars, old hotels have a special charme. In this case, the charme extended to the staff: the were friendly because they wanted to be friendly and not because some senior executive told them to and had them trained to use the right phrases. And the charme includes the location: a two minute walk and there is a first... More

The Reception staff were friendly and very helpful, and the hotel in an interesting old building was a welcome contrast to the more modern types. We had one single and one double room and they were both nicely furnished. There was not a huge choice at breakfast but the quality was good, with one of the best fresh croissants I... More

I found this online late at night for the next night. I walked up and actually couldn't figure out how to get in. The lady at the desk heard my confusion and looked out the door to find me! (There is a door bell on the right hand side of the door). Though it was about 10 AM a room... More

In a quiet street just two minutes walk into the heart of Ghent, the weather was dry but cold when I spent a week here but my room was always lovely and warm. I stayed in a large room overlooking the medieval style garden and had everything I needed. The only criticism is that the lighting is poor if you... More

The Eurasmus Hotel is situated in a beautiful, old, historic building. And the location is perfect for seeing the city of Ghent on foot. You are in the middle of everything. The room was fairly small and basic, but comfortable and cozy. We really dislike the big chain hotels where it's all slick and modern (AKA "boring"). We like the... More

I was drawn to the hotel due to its history. It did not disappoint. The rooms were a little dated, but very cosy and warm. My room was large and had lovely chairs. The bathroom was freshg and clean. THe location is fantastic, 2 mins to the old town, close to everything you would want to see for a short... More

Small hotel just off the centre of the old town (max 5 minutes from the Graslei/Cornlei harbour). Its a tall medieval house (so steep stairs, ornate breakfast rooms, creaky floors) and looks like it hasn't been updated in 20 years. But it is great value, everything worked and the beds (that looked worn out) were actually really comfortable. The lady... More

We've stayed here for two nights in the very calm and pleasant atmosphere of this 16th century building next to the centre of Gent. A hotel which is far different from the room optimized hotel mainstream. The interior is coherent to the historic ambience. Rooms with plenty of space and comfortable bed. Breakfast was perfect including fresh fruits. The entire... More

This is a characterful old hotel, with lots of period features outside and in (high, beamed sloping ceilings in my room for instance), and decent, helpful staff. Good, central location as well - not too noisy (some stray trombone noise etc from the nearby music school (in the day only - otherwise would have been a problem!) only added to... More
