“6 Days in Ghent”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 8, 2013

Had a wonderful holiday in Ghent Belgium.We chose Ghent as our base and did day trips from here.
The Su'ro B and B is a brilliant place to stay and Kris the host couldn't have been more helpful. The bus stop is only minutes away and easy access to the centre of town, parking availiable one block over, (4min walk and 3 euro, if required).
The rooms were clean and well laid out, the breakfasts always ample and tasty.
While doing great day trips to Bruge, Westvletern (Sint Sixtus Abby for the beer), Passcendale, Lille etc, it's important not to miss the beauty in the old centre of Ghent.
Big thanks to Kris for a memorable stay.

Room Tip: The Sylvia room has a toilet, and less floors to climb. The Sandra room has a beautiful view, but to...

We spent a night at suro with a friend, and we absolutely loved the place.

When we arrived, the host, Kris, was working at his bar (Bar Italiano, great ice cream there!!), so he left a note with the information we needed and a map to find him.
Once we got to Bar Italiano, he gave us precious information about what to do, where to eat and how to get everywhere in Ghent (bike, walking, buses...).

The room we booked, Sandra, was really clean and carefully prepared. There was even a hair drier, a straightening iron, make up remover, a coffee machine... It is suitable for friends, families or just individuals.

The place is 25 minutes away from the city center, but it's also possible to get there by bus (line 5). Kris provides you with bus tickets (you only pay if you use them) and maps of the city.

Kris asked us what time we wanted to have breakfast and he made it for us even though it was really early in the morning. We had breakfast with him, and everything was really, really good. Kris is the kindest host we have ever met, he takes care of every little detail.

As in many other places around Belgium and the Netherlands, you just have to be careful when going up the stairs! They are narrow and small.

Maybe during the summer I would recommend the guests to bring mosquito-repellent, especially if you like to sleep with the window open.

We will definitely come back to su'ro if we come back to Ghent!

Thank you Kris!!

I spent one night in Su'ro at the beginning of my study stay in Gent and it was the best possible choice. Su'ro is located within a walking distance from the train station, very close to the street with numerous shops and cafes (Heuvelpoort) that leads straight into the city centre (it takes you approximately 20 minutes to get there by foot or 5 minutes to the nearest bus/tram station), and yet the location is quiet and peaceful.

There are two rooms; I have stayed in the smaller one and my parents took the bigger one during their visit. Both of them are very tidy, nice and spacious and there's absolutely everything you need (from shower gel, toilet paper and even a water boiler with coffee and tea to TV and free Wi-fi).

And Kris, the owner, is the nicest person ever; knows a great deal about Gent and will help you find anything and also makes a wonderful, wonderful breakfast. You really couldn't ask for more and also the price is very, very reasonable (considering all the benefits) - I definitely recommend Su'ro to anyone from students to couples or families.

We recently stayed for three nights at Su'ro. We were in Sylvie and were very impressed - the room is large, with more than enough space for two people, a comfortable bed, a spacious shower (what a joy after tiny hotel ones!) and lots of little extras, like mineral water and a chocolate each day! Kris is a superb host - he took the time to check out places for us to eat (we arrived the day after the festival and many places took a well-earned break!), gave us excellent advice about the town, cooked a lovely breakfast and made us feel special! Many thanks, Kris! We will certainly stay at Su'ro when we next visit Gent! The location is great - just a short walk to the museums, an easy bus ride to the town centre and a great mix of all ages! And, as an extra, Kris makes delicious ice cream in his cafe which is just a few minutes away!

We recently stayed for two nights at Kris' Su'ro Bed and Breakfast and found everything just as good as others had described. We were in the room called Sylvie and had a very comfortable bed, and a great en-suite bathroom. The stairs are steep but safe and quite easy to use. The room was perfectly clean and well presented - the piece of chocolate and the provision of tea, coffee as well as a bottle of sparkling water, added to the perfection. We were able to breakfast in the garden with Kris and enjoyed his company as well as the wealth of useful information he was able to provide. Kris really is the ideal host and we certainly hope to return one day to his friendly hospitality.

We enjoyed eating at a vegetarian restaurant he recommended not far away and finished off a warm evening with an excellent home-made ice cream from the Bar Italiano, also run by the very active Kris. The B&B is a good walk from the city centre but Kris also lends his travel card to visitors to reduce the cost of the bus home when you are exhausted from sight-seeing in Gent. Kris is hardworking, generous and very friendly.

I spent 2 nights at Su'ro in Gent, Belgium with my girlfriend, we had the room Sandra, and had a fantastic experience. From the beginning Kris the owner went above and beyond expectations to provide information and stimulating conversation. From our arrival Kris provided us with tourist information, and recommendations on places to eat and tour. He even went as far as to provide a bus and tram card as long as we reimburse usage on the card. The room was great, and it was wonderful to see all of steps towards being environmentally conscious.

The B&B is on a quiet street about 1km from the train station and adjacent to busses to the city center. Rooms are on the upper levels, which can be difficult with heavy bags, but Kris is more than happy to help in this situation. Kris provides an excellent European style breakfast with fresh squeezed orange juice and hot coffee, along with pastries, etc. this was a truly great way of startig the morning.

I strongly recommend Su'ro for your next stay in Gent, I plan to stay there on mine!

Room Tip: There are two rooms in this B&B, you cannot go wrong.

I have spent two nights here with my girlfriend to visit Ghent during the weekend. We were in the room "Sylvie". The place was extremely nice, perfect for a couple, with a private shower and toilet. The owner of the B&B, Kris, has been extremely helpful, always providing us with precious suggestions about places to visit or where to have dinner/buy presents and souvenirs.
He borrowed us his bicycles to reach the center and helped us getting the train tickets to Brugge. We highly recommend this place for anyone who wants to visit Ghent!
