Recent guest reviews

The breakfast was excellent. The staff was extremely helpful and very informed on the city .

The hotel is in a good location and the best probably is the breakfast (which is 21 Euros) - if the people decide to show up and give you some. During the weekend, I got up and breakfast was not ready The rooms are smallish and the bathrooms are outdated It is also very noisy as there seems to be some youth-off-the-street program close by

Great Hotel for a stay in a dynamic town. We happened to be in town on a week end that was full of street festivities. The hotel is clean as a whistle. It is modern and also forms part of an older complex. Our room had exposed beam ceilings about 12 feet high. Extremely comfortable and clean room for a good night sleep. the Bathroom was immaculate. I would recommend this hotel to anyone.

I generally like the hotel. Small and well situated in the center of Gent. My room was small, but still big compared to some of the NYC hotel rooms I have tried. The breakfast was included. If I had paid for the breakfast I would have been disappointed about the quality, but when included in the competitive price (117USD / 8 Euro), I found it okay. On the bad side: 5Euro for 1h of Internet, 20Euro for 24h! Over all: a thumbs up, and for the price I would likely go there again. But it puzzles me, how this hotel can have 4*.

Visiting the city was just wonderful and easy because of the Hotel's location.
