Wonderful breakfast with some local suggestions. (We especially recommend the Vlaamse vla!) Authentic and lovely rooms with view. (of the Old city and the river) Very friendly crew! In the heart of the city of Ghent but not too crowded. (No noise at night)

Indeed, € 119.- incl a very nice breakfast buffet on the top floor of this very attractive, quiet loft-building with a nice view on to the river - what else do you need ? Nice reception. Thx for the coffee machine in the room (No. 222). Just one suggestion: in the shower please install a soap dispenser or something to... More

A great hotel and perfect location. All the sites are within easy walking distance of this hotel. The staff are so helpful and the rooms are spotless. We booked several months ahead of our trip so got a fantastic deal. Would definitely stay here again.

Expensive hotel, and not so beautiful as it looks. Bit dated and not so luxurious. Breakfast was €21 per person per day, which is insanely priced imho. Staff was really helpful, but I expected a bit more services and luxury for the expensive €120 a night.

Very central quality hotel, friendly English speaking staff clean rooms, comfortable bed, the breakfast room on the third floor was really nice with an out door area as well if the weather is fine. Breakfast was tasty and a good selection of a little expensive. Building has charm with the wooden beams. Would stay again if in Ghent.

I have stayed here before and liked it -booked with a very good deal so was looking forward to staying here - the location is perfect. A short walk to most of the main sights. It's a no1 tram for 3 euros (pay at machine not on tram) to get from the central station to the main town. So very... More

The main and biggest plus of this hotel is location and an exceptional view on the river. Personally I didn't try the breakfast, but seemed to be nice. Service was a bit strange: first day cleaning lady forgot to turn off the lights and water in the bathroom, next morning entered the room even with the sign "do not disturb".... More
