“Very Nice clean b&b”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 18, 2013

Nice friendly staff ( a family owned b&b), close to the city center and the shops. Within 5 minutes walk you are in the middle of Gent.
Big rooms, good shower.
One thing to improve: little bit noisy (you can hear the other guests when you are in your room). When you stay in Gent for a couple of day you can relax in the garden.
Breakfast was ok: everything you need.

We stayed in the apartment suite for 5 nights over a chilly Belgian Easter. The apartment is absolutely charming, faded elegance combined with warmth and comfort. We had everything we needed, in an excellent location, comfortable beds, hot shower and a well-equipped kitchen where we whipped up some simple evening meals as a break from eating out. Prinsenhof is a very lived in, real neighbourhood, with artsy interesting shops and some good eateries... Just a short stroll to the Castle Gravensteen and the Patersol restaurants. If you are looking for a modern hotel room it would be best to look elsewhere, but if you want friendly, helpful hosts, in a charming old home, an excellent breakfast a real Gent neighbourhood ... A most enjoyable stay!

Room Tip: The apartment has 2 spacious bedrooms- one queen and 2 doubles and a single.

Spacious room, clean, noisy stairs, but friendly hosts, open kitchen and only a 5min walk to city centre. Top tip: Get the #1 tram from train station to Rabotstraat - it stops across the road from the hotel. And DEFINITELY HAVE THE BREAKFAST! It's fantastic value for money and better than the overpriced disappointing breakfast at a major chain hotel we stayed in later!!!

Room Tip: We were upstairs so didn't really have noise. I imagine the downstairs rooms are probably a bit...

Very friendly family run B&B 5 minute walk from the heart of a beautiful city. Great value rooms considering the spacious nature and superb location. Tram stop right outside and was able to park across the road for 8 euro / night.

Great breakfast choice looking out onto the quiet and pretty courtyard, was a great way to start the day exploring a hidden gem of a city.

Room Tip: The room for 4 had bunk beds and a a double, as well as a sofabed. In a converted loftspace, plenty...

Four of us stayed in Ghent for one night on our trip through Belgium and had a great stay at Onderland. This was a very nice B&B with a great host. The B&B was well located, the room was not only nice but huge, and the breakfast was great! We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and will make this place our first choice the next time we come through Ghent!

We stayed in the suite, so I can't say anything about the regular rooms. The suite looks like a 19th century gentleman's residence - even the heater is historical. The apartment consists of two huge bedrooms, a living room with seating area, dining table and kitchen and a (modern) bathroom. The price is comparable to two regular rooms. I considered it ideal because we travelled with a family member and wanted to spend some time together in a relaxed atmosphere, next to visiting the sites of Ghent.
The suite has one important drawback. The trams run through the Rabotstraat at about two metres from the bedroom windows, causing noise and vibrations in the apartment, even with double glazing and roll-down shutters. Considering every thing else, this was acceptable for me.
The breakfast was just what I expect in a professional B&B. The owners are not very present, so those looking for a personal type of B&B might look elsewhere.
