    Great place to stay in Ghent

    The building has it's antique style of the city. Located in a great location a block away for a tram. The room we were in was a suite very specious. The bed was very comfortable to sleep in. Very clean. The staff are amazing! Very helpful and attentive to the guests. Thr cleaning staff were very considerate and professional to our needs. We had great conversations. The breakfast was excellent! The coffee was rich in flavor. We loved everything about the place! Thanks for having us!

    Bad location

    The location is terrible. We couldn’t find the hotel based on the map of Not close to the train station and not close to the city center either. People working there are nice and friendly. The room is spacious but very dark.

    Pleasantly surprised that front desk was staffed upon arrival. Staff was very helpful and provided transit information and help for travel to city center. Great location if you are traveling by auto as they have parking and close location to tram.

    Enjoyable stay!

    My family recently visited Ghent. We only stayed one day but really enjoyed. The room was large and easily fit the three adults. There was a kitchenette which we used to make coffee. The bathroom was a decent size. Parking was available. And there was a pool, sauna, and terrace but unfortunately no time to use them. The two ladies that worked in reception were both friendly and helpful. They had local information available for touring the small but beautiful city.

    We had a deluxe room and it was spacious and comfortable. The double sink in the bathroom was a nice feature. Breakfast was available all morning and had ample choices. Walking to transit takes a little time (over 10 minutes), but there are options and we like to walk. They have a large car park for those driving which seemed to be how most other guests arrived. There is a lounge in the lobby and a terrace so you can relax outside your room - and an elevator if you need it. No A/C, but we had two front windows, side windows and a window in the large bathroom so plenty of ways to take advantage of the breeze. Just very pleasant overall.

    Beautiful room right outside the business of the main city area. Short drive or tram ride to all the sights. Staff was super friendly and helpful!

    Good value, nice service

    Good location outside the centre of town but with a tram stop (tram 2 & 4) 2 mins walk from the hotel. Very nice welcome, friendly service. Big bed and big room. The building is definitely not modern and the room could have been cleaner but overall I would recommend as good value with friendly service. Swimming pool & sauna need to be booked in advance due to Covid, you get an hour slot.
