“Great apartment in Gent”
Reviewed March 12, 2012

We had a wonderful stay in ApartGent for 3 nights. The apartment was great, spacious, well kitted out. The hosts Erica & Kristof seemed to have thought of everything with the supplies for the kitchen, not just tea & coffee, but honey with a vanilla pod, hot chocolate & mint tea. There was lots of crockery, again way beyond the standard, plates, cups & saucers & bowls. It was these little touches that made our stay very relaxing. There's a nearby supermarket for provisions & the Trappistenhuis bar is very near for good beers.

Lovely apartment, with everything you might need and much more besides. Warm, friendly greeting and service throughout the stay. Would recommend highly for holiday or business. Location is excellent as well served by trams and bus network and only a short walk into the historic centre of Ghent. Supermarket and plenty of other stores just a couple of minutes walk away. Would stay again... in fact, we have already booked.

My partner was staying here after an operation and we recommend it for peace, quiet and top service during recovery.

The ApartGent is a GREAT apartment in a gorgeous little city. The apartment was immaculate, very spacious and comfortable and best of all Gent is a charming city to explore (follow the walking tour on the brochure offered by the hostess). Our only wish was that the apartment was a little closer to the center of town.

We stayed at ApartGent for 3 nights July 2011. The apartment is easy walking distance from both the train station and town centre if you enjoy walking and getting a feel for a town. We were in Gent for the Jazz festival and that to was in easy walking distance. The apartment is close to an excellent supermarket that will easily meet any travellers requirements. The kitchen is well equipped and we particularly enjoyed the espresso machine ( although we did need to give it a good clean before use). The apartment was clean, well furnished and the owners friendly even taking some time part way through our visit to check that everything was ok. The supply of dressing gown is also a very nice touch.

If I was to have one negative comment it would be that the shower cubical was quite small but otherwise a perfect apartment for a treat for a long weekend or special treat

This very nice apart-hotel is located in the centre of Ghent, near the public transport and a secure underground parking.
We spent more than a week there with the family and felt immediately at home, also thanks to great service from Kristof and Erika who run the apartments.
We especially liked the grand atmosphere of the original building, the rooms with the high ceilings and the modern, yet cosy accommodation.
Recommended for all who want to feel at home, even when traveling.

Room Tip: Really, all rooms are great :)

I needed a place to stay in Ghent during the film festival that lasted 10 days in October 2011. When searching for apartments, my primary criterion is its central location, on walking distance from everything interesting. For the film festival, this apartment had an ideal location, within 15 minutes from all relevant cinema's, some even within 5 minutes on foot. On the other hand, if sightseeing is your reason to visit Ghent, you will find the historic center also within 10 or 15 minutes.
If walking is not your hobby, the central tram/bus station is around the corner, where nearly all trams and buses pass by. And to complete my requirements list, an extensive shopping center is there as well, including a large supermarket with everything you need or forgot to bring along.
Secondly, I want a well equipped kitchen to prepare my own meals.
And thirdly, Internet is also on my "must have" list. In this case, only fixed Internet was available which worked very well for my laptop. However, my smartphone felt a bit orphaned (luckily, most local cinema's offered free WiFi, so no real problem after all). Unlike what I see in many hotel rooms and other apartments, there were ample power outlets for all the electrical equipment that an average traveler carries along nowadays.
I found all the above in ApartGENT, besides other facilities that make our lives comfortable, like dish washer, washing machine, and dryer. Their website proved very helpful while making a final choice, showing everything else worth knowing in preparation. And I can vouch that the website is truthful to reality. I particularly like the ample closet space for clothes and other stuff (hence no need using floor or suitcase for storage, like in many other places). As a bonus there are two tables. One is in the living room, next to the kitchen. And a second one is in the bedroom, very suitable for business related activities over weeks or even months.
The friendly hostess lives in the same building, and can help you with everything you want to know about the city, in addition to a lot of tourist documentation that is lying around in the apartment. And if something does not work as expected, help is nearby. For instance, a defect in my coffee maker was repaired first thing the next morning, so my caffeine addiction had nothing to complain about.
I had only one problem, after all unnecessary when I had paid more attention. One of the two bedroom windows was without mosquito nets, but I opened both the first night. I found out the hard way that this was a mistake, while several mosquito’s considered me an attractive warm blooded prey. Keeping only one window open proved more than sufficient, so this problem solved itself after day one.
All in all, I had only a very short list of comments about the apartment when I left, plus a few minor suggestions for improvement. That is unusual for me, being an experienced traveler and having seen the insides of many hotels and apartments. I see no reason why these minor things will not be changed to the better within the foreseeable future.

What a surprise - lovely modern spacious rooms, excellent amenities and kitchen facilities. Easy walking distance to historic center - buses/trams even closer. Erika - very helpful and a great host. Would definitely return.
