Best Western Residence Cour Saint Georges
Ranked #32 of 37 Hotels in Ghent
Reviewed October 15, 2013

Great location just around the corner from the Hotel de Ville and the cathedral and a short walk to the canalside restaurants. Reception staff were helpful and check-in was efficient. There's chargeable hotel parking across the road which was a great benefit. The room was standard in size with a fan to deal with the heat of the day, but the bathroom was huge with a tiny shower off it. Better use could maybe have been made of the space. The breakfast buffet was limited, great that it was available until 11.30 but even more limited items as you approached that time. The breakfast room has interesting old silk wallpaper but service there could have been a bit more friendly. Overall, nothing to complain about or really to rave about. Just a standard stay in a very convenient location. We did mention that the tea tray had not been re-filled or teacups washed for our second night but that was a minor iritation.

A great location to see the sights in Ghent. The staff is professional and attentive. Benjamin was extremely helpful during my five day stay. He provided my colleagues and me with maps and walking directions, he summoned taxis, kept all breakfast items stocked, and gave us advice so that we could make the most of our visit to Ghent.

Room Tip: Away from the street.

I had a room on the first floor at the big which was really spacious, a big surprise when have to pass a cramped lobby and take your luggage through the breakfast room. Breakfast itself wasn't particularly special, not to much choice and ver tight seating arrangement. Also some parts of the hotel may need some touch up to get it to current standards. But at the end, you are in the city centre for a good price.

Room Tip: First floor rooms are spacious

We spent a night there during the recent music festival. It is an excellent hotel and is well located for excursions into the centre of the Old Town. Beware the lift though - it only takes 2 people at a time so if you're not prepared to walk, getting up and down can take time. The breakfast room is a little crowded / intimate but the breakfast, whilst typically continental, was good. The family room on the top floor (sleeps 3/4) is good value and very roomy. Pre-arrange parking in their garage across the road as otherwise parking could be problematic.

the location is perfect, the service is excellent, the breakfast is good but the Hotel is in urgent need of renovation. It is just dated and it shows! We were lucky that temperatures were only around 20C - if it gets warmer the rooms will be sticky anh hot...

Also - for the state of the Hotel the prices are not justifiable

After a very positive stay in February (see earlier review) I returned to Gent and the Cour St. Georges last week.

Everything I wrote about perfect location and good service remains valid, but I begin to understand some of the criticism levelled at the rooms. Last time I had a room on the 1st floor above the entrance and was very happy with it. This time I had room #2 on the ground floor at the back. On paper it should have been a better room, slightly larger with a bath instead of a shower, and a private balcony outside.

Unfortunately it was hellishly hot - despite very average (+-19C) temperatures outside. The central heating radiators weren't to blame, it was actually a section of wall that was almost painfully hot to the touch. Apparently the hot water plumbing was completely uninsulated there. Thoughtful staff had placed a large fan next to the bed, and with open windows, a single sheet and the fan at full blast I had a pleasant night - but I dread to think what a really hot night would have been like.

Also the bathroom looked luxurious with marble and chrome everywhere, but the hose connecting the tap to the shower head over the bath was too short, so I couldn't have the shower at full height. As I'm fairly tall, that meant having to bend over to get completely covered.

In the end I still had an OK stay, but I'm much less lyrical than I was last time. Advice is to keep away from rooms at the back on the left. It's stil a nice hotel, but your mileage may vary dramatically depending on the room. Bigger isn't necessarily better.

Room Tip: Avoid rooms at the rear on the left. At the front seems a better choice even if potentially noisier.

We stayed here for one night in June. It was a last minute booking but we were very satisfied with everything from the friendly staff to the excellent breakfast buffet.
We got a great room, overlooking the street and another old building. The room was clean, spacious and the bed was comfortable.
You can park your bike across the street but use several locks as there are a lot of bike thefts in the town.
