4/5 Good

  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service

I love this hotel, I alway booked it when I’m in Gent, because it is in a really good location, and the price is really good too. The only thing I don’t like that much is that the rooms are too small, but overall is perfect for 2-3 days stay in Gent

Location is excellent! Right next to the Christmas markets!

  • Disliked: Amenities

It was OK. Great location. Small room in general with minimal towels and you could hear everything from people in the rooms around you. The employees were fine, not rude, but not friendly or outstanding. I’d stay again, but if there was something else in a similar location that was a similar price, I’d rather try that and take my chances than book this again.

The hotel is located directly in front of St Baafs Cathedral, which was handy. However, the reception staff are grumpy and unhelpful and I nearly fell over at one stage, as there are building works and the temporary covering on the floor wasn't secured correctly. Excellent location, but unfortunately I wouldn't stay here again
