    The breakfast was well presented and the breakfast room was pleasant.

    There is no lobby and the room compared to others was overpriced.

  • Older travelers
    7.0

    Easy to access historic area.

    Located on a noisy, busy corner.

  • Older travelers
    8.2

    the size of the room and the bathroom -- both were enormous

    traffic noise in the bedroom, TV reception was bad, channel choice poor

  • Family with children
    10.0

    Wonderfully welcoming and helpful staff; superb bedrooms and huge, ensuite bathrooms; very comfortable beds; excellent garage for the car (which was not needed during our stay in Gent); very good restaurant. One of the best hotels we've stayed at.

  • Older travelers
    5.4

    Easy access to historic centre of Ghent and shopping

    Extreme noise from street, double glazing was totally inadequate.

  • Couple
    10.0

    The main lady who checked us in was so nice, friendly and extremely helpful. She gave us a map of the city and outlined all the main attractions and best places to eat. Our room was huge (well much bigger than expected especially given what we were paying) and was very clean.

    There is no lift so if you have a large suitcase you may have to carry it up a few flight of stairs.

  • Older travelers
    7.8

    friendly helpful staff. Easy going hotel. Pity about the side road being dug up whilst there which made getting in and out with suitcase a little more akward. Otherwise good location just far enough away to walk easily to old quarters but far enough away to be quiet and away from the tourists.

    See above about the side road being dug up and the tv was tiny!

  • Single
    8.2

    Small-scale hotel with excellent customer service and spacious rooms.

  • Older travelers
    7.4

    The best part about this hotel is its excellent location

    Plastic sheet on the bed made it very hot and sweaty alot of stange sounds in the night

  • Single
    7.4

    Efficient and friendly staff. Decent breakfast.

    Internet was available and worked well but was not free.

  • Couple
    7.4

    The Standard two person room was spacious and clean, as well was the bathroom. The hotel is very close to the historical center of Gent.

  • Couple
    8.8

    The location is great, just few steps from the heart of the city. Nice view from the windows.

    No climatisation, no free internet access.

  • Single
    7.8

    Reception desk is very helpful

    An telephone in room will be very useful. Particularly for getting calls from ouside.

  • Couple
    8.8

    Spacy and quiet room, very friendly and helpful staff, excellent location.

    No elevator - so you have to climb the stairs, that could be a problem if you're not fit enough.

  • Group of friends
    9.2

    The Hotel was very clean, staff excellent plus a garage to keep my bike away from prying eyes. Nice hotel.
