Good - Location is a bit of a walk but the City is reachable on foot,it is in a quiet area, TV channels, Cleanliness, Staff, Secure parking......... Not so good - V small room, v small beds, No Tea/Coffee in rooms, value for money.

Room tip: There's a free bus - but they dont say exactly where (they direct you to where there are several Bus stops (which one ???))

Dear guest,

Thank you for taking the time to write about your experience at ibis budget Gent Dampoort.
We regret to hear that you stay wasn't quite as good as expected and would like to apologize for the inconvenience you may have experienced.

The city center is only a 15 minute walk from our hotel. We also rent bicycles and there is a free shuttle to the city center that leaves from the end of our street.
We are a budget hotel and in general ibis budget hotels are known for it's smaller and more basic rooms but always with the necessary comfort for a good night sleep.
There is coffee and tea available at reception which is open 24/7.

We do hope you enjoyed your stay and would like to thank you for your feedback.

Kind regards,
ibis budget Gent Dampoort

Hotel good but,having stayed in other budgets in Belgium this one bit overpriced for a budget & not being near the centre. Friendly staff. Felt sorry for them having extra cleaning due to outside work

Whilst the hotel is great value for money, it is rather off the beaten track. The rooms are extremely small, so if you want to share a room between 3 be prepared for one of you to sleep in a pull down cot out of the wardrobe.
Staff are very friendly, rooms are clean. If you just want somewhere to crash for a few days and are prepared to walk about a mile to the centre then you won't go far wrong here.

Brand-new hotel. Smallish rooms but very clean and smart with good facililties. Lovely bathroom. Charming helpful staff, hairdryers available to borrow and extra pillows if needed. Very good breakfast, lots of choice. Good secure parking - 10 euros. Not that central for the ,main sights, you'd need to walk. Overall good value for money.

Good clean rooms, great bathroom facilities and shower, friendly staff, great parking. Breakfast not the best, but fuels you up for the day. 10 minute walk to the city centre. Downside, room very small and no amenities, bars, shops in the immediate area. Great base for exploring the city and surrounding areas.

Room tip: Rear rooms quieter
