4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

We've spend 3 nights in this hotel during our trip to Gent. The hotel is well located, 2 minutes by foot to the city center. They offer parking in a garage, but I recommend to use the nearby located parking garage #8, if I remember correctly it costs €13.50 for 24 hours and is cheaper than the hotel garage. Unfortunately during our visit the breakfast area was renovated, so we had to leave the hotel to a nearby meeting room of the hotel where breakfast was served. It was pretty loud and cold in there with a door which was difficult to close. I don't know how long the renovation will take place, I guess that now (end of December 2017) it should be done. There was a lack of electricity one morning as well when I was in the shower for about 10 min, I guess due to the renovation. Our room was standard, with huge walls and everything we needed. Nothing spectacular but absolutely no issue to sleep and stay there. Free WiFi is offered.

A lovely hotel - friendly staff, good breakfast and only a few minutes walk and you are in the centre. There are apartments, rooms in the main hotel and more set around a courtyard with small shared outside space. We had a room off the courtyard - it was so quiet you would not know you were in the centre of town. No parking is the only thing stopping a 5 star rating - underground parking is available just around the corner though, at €14 a day. I would recommend this hotel for a city break.

I was a little nervous of staying at this hotel as the reviews were very mixed. I was pleasantly surprised. This is a mid range hotel that offers value for money in an excellent location close to the centre. The rooms we had (classic) were adequate for our needs, comfortable beds, good room service and the breakfast was outstanding. I would recommend this hotel to anyone who wants to stay in Ghent.

Just enjoyed a long weekend in Gent using this hotel as a base. Clean well appointed rooms, friendly and helpful staff together with being only a short walk from all the major attractions make this a great place to stay. Some renovation work taking place whilst we were there so we had to make a short walk across the street to an annex for breakfast, but really no trouble. The quantity and quality of the breakfast was excellent. Wouldn't hesitate to use this hotel again.

Located nearby the center which is good. Hotel would need some renovation and better maintenance. My room has been in the back with a small yard in the center - surrounded by many rooms on 2 levels. Not that quiet as other guests do have conversations in the yard and the windows and walls are quite thin... Breakfast is default for a 4* and without complaints. Service (Reception) was good and quick (check-in, Check-out with special requests for my bill, order a taxi - all great), they might try to compensate. So in essence: for a 2 day business this is working, but not a memorable experience.

Well located near the centre, really convenienet. Reception s doing properly his job and is really friendly. I had room 115 which was on the back of the hotel, stat to be old and need refrechment or new paint. Room was clean and a little bit noisy as you well listen to the people waloking ont the other floor. Breakfest is perfect with a lot fo choice including eggs and bacon and a lort of different cakes including macarons

The hotel has 2 buildings which makes a little bit strange. The second building was in a dark corner. The staff was not helpful. Such strict rules of late check-in. I would not choose it again, though the location is great

No Wifi, airco and elevator working during 3 day stay. Alarm set off multiple times during the night, Poor food quality. Limited cleanliness of rooms. Mattrass too soft . Thin towels. Personnel not particularly friendly.

We stayed here for one night on our way to Germany. The hotel is in an ideal location - just minutes away from the beautiful town centre. There is no on-site car parking, the nearest multi-storey is a few minutes walk and you should include overnight parking in your budget (about €25). The room we were given was fairly small, but extremely comfortable. Not all the plug points worked - so we had to use the one for the kettle to charge our phones. We did not have breakfast in the hotel, but there are cafés just a short walk away. This is a great budget hotel. We would definitely stay here again.

We stayed one night (thankfully only 1 night) at this property and were given a room in their other building 100 meters away. This other building is completely renovated empty shell, which was probably a some sort of old warehouse before or something like that. The room is ok with cold slippery flooring, painted I guess. Also if you fancy a modern take on the rooms layout where a toilet and a bathroom are only behind half-height partition wall - ie there is no door to the toilet and there is no walls - so you can hear everything as if someone is siting on the loo just next to you.... But the main reason I started this review is that the room was extremely cold! I attempted to switch on the heating - it did not work. I tried to call - phone does not work. I went to the reception - walked down the road. I was informed that heating is switched on only in October and at that moment nothing can be done. I asked mobile heater as we have a 3 months old baby with us - they said no, they have not got any. I asked if we can leave without payment - girl at the reception refused and said that I have to pay and then write to the manager and see if she has a mercy to give me a discount. Unbelievable... It was a cold day, the temperature outside was about +14, the more or less the same temperature was inside the room, as the window was open and the entrance door is juts one thin plastic sheet ... We had to stay in bad dressed, and we went to local H&M to but additional warm stuff for our baby. Nice ! I just hope that other people read this and plan their stay accordingly. At EUR 170 a night without breakfast - this hotel is not cheap at all... Do NOT stay at this hotel unless you used to such cold conditions!
