Nice and cordial staff, great rooms. good breakfast, walking distance from Gravensteen, Korenmarkt and city center. Secure private parking, of course paid but very convenient. Room was having high ceiling and huge windows.
Had a very pleasant stay in the Erasmus Hotel. This is a quiet little hotel near the historic center if Ghent. The manager does a wonderful job all around. The decor is atmospheric. Everything is meticulously clean and in good operating order. Generous breakfast. I just wish I could have stayed another night.
A lovely choice if you want convenience to the central area and atmosphere. The breakfast room has a suit of armor on display. The staff are excellent, breakfast is free, and there is free wi-fi. However, it's an old house with no elevator. Room was quite comfortable, but again, this is not an American-style contemporary chain hotel.
The best thing about this hotel is its location. I picked this hotel as it is not part of a chain. Boy, was I sorry. We checked in and that was the end of our interaction with the staff. We weren't told there was no lift and no offer of help to carry our luggage up the steep stairs. Our room had a kettle and a fridge which was a bonus. The room however, was of a very poor standard. No view (not a deal breaker), industrial flooring, shower rail hanging off, cracks in plaster on walls, stained blanket, dubious electrics etc. The bed, however, was comfortable. The fridge hummed which necessitated the use of ear plugs. The following morning we were greeted by the smell of warm croissants. Excellent, I though. Ha, wrong again. Probably the worst continental breakfast I've ever had. The fruit salad consisted of apples, oranges and grapefruit (with no attempt to remove any pith). Poor selection of cold meats and cheese and the croissants were soggy. All in all a poor experience. …
The Erasmus Hotel is basically a reasonable bed and breakfast. The accommodations are neat and clean and the breakfast is typically European with the addition of eggs cooked to order. There are three stories and steep stairs, so if mobility is an issue (as with us) it's a little tough. The location is excellent: about 200 meters to the historic town center and about 1km to the museums. It is not a restaurant as the website declares, but there are many good restaurants nearby - there are some nice ones nearby that are not as expensive as the ones just across the canal in the historic center. Definitely a good choice for the budget-minded.
