We spent 2 nights in Ghent in January, we found holiday inn express to be a nice hotel to stay at with friendly and helpful staff and comfortable rooms with plenty of space.
It was a bit of a journey by tram into the city of Ghent, which didnt take very long (maybe 15 mins.) Easy to get to from Ghent station, but was a bit annoying to walk to from tram stop especially when lugging around suitcases in the snow!
We did not eat breakfast here, but the restuarant area looked lovely. The hotel seemed very quiet like there were not many people staying here, yet they gave us a room that overlooked the inside of the hotel (the restaurant), we would have prefered a window looking to outside.
We also found there to be lots of noises such as running water from showers, toilets and taps from above rooms, and as we were on the bottom floor, this was constant throughout the night and kept us awake.
Ikea was right across the road which was great! We had an afternoon to fill in so we went shopping and went across later that night for dinner in the ikea restaurant which was very good as always!
We probably wont be going back to Ghent in the future although a very beautiful city,we felt we have seen everything there is to see here. If we were recommending places to stay, Holiday Inn Expo is a good place to rest the head, but ,maybe something closer to town would be more easier especially if you wanted places to eat out from, and for sightseeing etc.
