Great Location

by Bubun S on 26 Jan 2017 (Business Traveller)

The hotel is situated in downtown. Just a few steps and you are in the city centre of Ghent where you can enjoy many restaurants, shops and the beautiful view of Ghent River. The hotel room is large. I have one big bed and one small bed. They also have coffee pods machine (which I like so much). Breakfast is also nice, with a lot of variety.

Great location and quirky comfy rooms

The hot water shower pressure was probably the worst we have ever experienced which was a pity as the rest of the bathroom was fine. The biggest problem we has was parking the car at the recommended Friday Market car park, despite already hitting tourists with ...

Nice Hotel ideally situated

by ybsae on 21 Nov 2016 (Couple Traveller)

Stayed here on a three night 'special deal' mid week break in November 2016. When we arrived we were given our room keys immediately, without having to fill in forms or leave passports etc. We were allocated rooms each with three beds, so were larger than expected, with dressing gowns and slippers waiting for us on the beds. Our rooms had no noise problems at all, apart from the sound of the heavy rain we had most evenings. There was plenty of storage/ hanging space and tea/ coffee making facili...
