Since we had never visited Ghent before, my wife and I wanted to stay in the center of the city. A quick trolley ride got us from the train station to the hotel. We were very happy with this choice. The hotel was clean and the room was nice. The hotel appear to span several building, so the walk from the reception area to our room was somewhat long. We slept well and the price was reasonable. The hotel satisfied our needs.

This is our second visit to the Novotel in Ghent centre. Excellent customer service, great location, very child friendly but the place needs a refurb/modernization. The sauna is tiny but the arrangement is great - you book the sauna and have it all to yourself for an hour. The kids enjoyed the pool even though it was a bit chilly! Do recommend and will visit again and hopefully it would have been refurbished.

Stayed overnight on our way to Germany. We arrived by car and hotel staff were very helpful organising parking. Comfortable room and bed, friendly staff and good breakfast. Lovely city to visit with good bars and restaurants.

The location certainly could not be better. Right in the heart of historic Ghent (Gent to the locals), and the commercial shopping centre. Definately a good base to discover the city from. The Novotel in Belgium and France seem o like having the toilet seperate from the bathroom which is actually unhygenic as you have to handle two doors after going to the toilet before you can wash your hands. Not what I would expect of a Mid range brand and a bit of a letdown. This is why the lower than excellent mark as the breakfast was the best we have had on our 4 hotel trip accross Belgium and France so far with a very good selection of pastries. The Amadeus 2 rib restuarant is right next door and definately worth a journey for an evening meal. The food in the hotel is overpriced and limited.

Location is indeed perfect close to restaurants et shopping area. Also reasonably close to Ghent University. Outside of that the price is pretty high and expect the lobby which nicely designed the corridors and rooms are pretty average ... :-( It also lacks a good bar where you can meet colleagues at night, although the bars around are pretty good. Rating would be higher if the price wasn't so high. Also be very careful if you need to drive as it is in the middle of the pedestrian area.

Nice hotel in the center of town. Own parking. Bit expensive though. Rooms are good but a bit dated. clean and good beds. Friendly staff. Small pool outside. Breakfast was good. 3 star hotel with lots of amenities.

We stayed 2 nights. We had a suite which was a lovely size, the children had their own room with bunk beds and the main room was very spacious. The room was clean and the beds very comfortable. The Reception and restaurant staff were very friendly and helpful. The pool and the activities for children in the reception was really enjoyed. Being so central it was easy to wonder round and explore what the city had to offer. Breakfast was also very good with a wide variety of choice. We would definitely stay here again.

The location of this hotel is perfect, right in the heart of Ghent. Staff from reception to the restaurant are all friendly and polite. Lunch and dinner were good to very good. At breakfast the scrambled eggs were gone around 8h and till 8:25h they still weren't refilled. This let me down for breakfast. Rooms are basic, but good with decent sleep comfort. I would recommend this hotel for its great location, staff and outside swimming pool.

This hotel is clean and quiet with a perfect location right in the centre. There is an underground car park but we parked a few blocks away (short walk) as recommended on their info. The breakfast was excellent. It's a short walk to the Graslei area and across the square to see the Gent Altarpiece. Lots of restaurants close by and atmospheric at night

Stayed 2 nights in August 2017. Very friendly and helpful staff, from receptionist to cleaning personell. Had a large room with view of Sint Niklas Cathedral. Everything was in short walking distance. Clean and airy room, good bed & breakfast, so a very comfortable stay. Also plus for having a small fridge. I can recommend it to everyone and if I go back I'll stay here again.
