Have just returned from three nights at The Garden in the City.

There are two rooms available, the quiet Garden Room, situated at the end of the garden and the larger Loft Room, situated (you guessed it) upstairs.

The house is very clean and cosy and within walking distance from the central station (about 10-15 minutes) and the centre of Gent (about 800 metres).

The hosts are very warm and welcoming and breakfast is fresh and served at a time that suits you. On their website you can choose additional breakfast requests such as English or Belgian breakfasts, though we stuck with the continental version, which was ample enough. There is a small supermarket next door which is convenient.

The rooms have air-con/heating and TV with International channels.

There are a few bars/pubs/cafes within walking distance that serve a host of Belgian and international beers, for restaurants its best to head towards the centre.

The hosts Kurt and Laurent have some good recommendations and are always available and helpful.

Would definately stay again if we were to return to Gent!

Room Tip: The Loft Room has its own small kitchen and terrace.

I stayed several times at "Garden in the city" for a couple of days and I was always very well welcomed, the house is cosy and very very clean, the owners are very friendly and helpfull and great cooks!

I stayed at the roof studio where you have a huge terrace, and a well equiped kitchen so I could cook when I wanted too I really felt home! And for the winter there is central heating that you can arange at your best convenience, cosy and warm!

This B&B is very well situated near the city center, the cinema and the university, parking available around the street or at the St Pietersplein for 2,50euro's/24hours.

I warmly recommend this place for anyone staying in Gent,

Nathalie H.

I stayed here for 3 nights in mid-January. The property was easy to find, in the outskirts of Southern Ghent. Our large room was at the bottom of the garden and fully self-contained; the location was VERY quiet and free of traffic noise and all other distractions. There was a double bed, work desk with wi-fi, plenty of storage space, electric heater and a flat screen TV. The bathroom was well equipped and had a large shower cubicle.

Breakfast was served in the main house at whatever time one asked for it and was the usual continental breakfast but with no meat. On-street parking was available 200 yards away for 4 euros for 24 hours. I didn't move the car during my stay and bought a ticket each morning, on my way into the city centre.
