Service and Staff
Property condition


The hotel has s very good location and is very close to the centre of Gent and there is a tram station just in front of it. In such a good location the rooms are not well designed and they are very small. When you put your luggages there is very little space for you to move. Before coming to Gent we stayed in a hotel in the centre of Brussels with a similar price but a double size room. Toilets are very tiny, it’s not easy to take a shower, to wash your face or to use the toilet for most of the sizes but especially if you are 1.85 meter of height. There are several missing things such as facial towels, water glass etc... A keetle with which you can have tea or coffee in your room would be most desirable...

4/5 Good

This property has bettered my opinion of Ibis as a whole because my first experience elsewhere was not so good. They offer AC in the rooms and a comfortable bed. There is a bar downstairs that we didn't use in our short stay but seemed quite nice. On-site parking for 16 EUR was probably the cheapest day parking in the area. Walking distance to the center.

5/5 Excellent

Great service, nice location, clean rooms. Located just outside of the tourist area so you are a close walk to all attractions but still have access to a grocery store and affordable restaurants. Older property but well kept and clean, nice renovated lobby. Staff very friendly and helpful.
