Be sure to get a room in the old section of this hotel, which is made up of 2 (3?) historic houses right on the canal and in the center of everything you would want to see in Ghent. It's around the corner from the Castle of the Counts and 5 minutes from St. Bavo's Cathedral. The room was large, with a wooden floor. Three stairs went down to the room from the entryway/bar/bathroom area. You look right out on the canal from the small, ancient windows and I can imagine that it would be noisy if there is a celebration going on like the one they were preparing for while we were there. The bed was comfy and the amenities were good, although the shower was one of those half-door, weak water pressure ones. Front desk service was very nice.
