Comfortable, clean, welcoming 4* hotel with large restaurant & spa facilities. However, the room was less well equipped than we would have liked: 1. It lacked a chest of drawers & had only one empty shelf inside the wardrobe - so where we were supposed to put shirts, jumpers, socks, underwear, etc was a mystery. When I asked, they suggested bringing extra hangers! 2. There was no plug in the basin. When I asked, they said this was deliberate - for 'hygienic reasons'! 3. The room was advertised as having a 'king-size' bed. In fact it had two single beds pushed together & made up as single beds. 5. The bathroom (good shower but no bath) was supplied with 2 hand towels, 2 bath towels & a bath mat. Fine. But there was only one small towel rail, so it was impossible to hang them in the bathroom to dry after use.
"Art Deco hotel a tram/bus ride away from the city."
The hotel was not as central as we'd normally opt for, but it does have parking (unusual in 'medieval' Ghent) and the tram ride into town is very easy. It is a character hotel with interesting Art Deco features, although your room could well be in a newer quarter. It represents good value for money as our room was both large and comfortable. Furthermore, the staff were excellent, particularly as they gave us some good tips for transport, restaurants and things to do. The breakfast comes at an additional cost, but was worth it. Overall, I'd definite;ly recommend this hotel.

We stayed for four nights and found the rooms very comfortable with lots of space and many in-room facilities. The hotel is situated an easy 15 minutes walk from the historic centre of the city but is in a very quiet and pleasant area near the canals. The beds were very comfortable and we slept well; breakfast had reasonable choice and was good, but not absolute top-quality. We did not eat in the hotel restaurant. The hotel isn't near the main station although the Gent-Dampoort station is only about 10 mins walk away. We enjoy walking and found the hotel offered a good base for exploring the old city and for a day trip (from Dampoort station) to Antwerp. Altogether we found it very good value for money. It was the Ghent Festival while we were there and we enjoyed the Sunday Markets and extra music at various places around the centre including Beethoven's 9th performed with the Grand Piano in a boat. Ghent is a lovely city and we had a wonderful short holiday.

This hotel was a fabulous Belgic gem of a venue to celebrate a romantic break in Ghent.
This hotel was very good indeed and I would highly recommend due to its charm and presentation. The customer service was excellent and all presented with chic decor.

The heart and soul of Ghent is the picture-perfect, car-free Old Town. Tour boats ply the Lys River, with the medieval guild houses of Graslei and Korenlei streets casting their reflections upon the placid waters. St. Bavo's Cathedral houses the magnificent Lamb of God altarpiece, painted by the van Eyck brothers in the 1400s. The Gravensteen Castle, built in the 1100s, is another must-see.
