  • Older travelers
    7.4

    Close proximity to city center and has parking (at a cost).

    We were offered a suite - although it was fine, it looked like an older Hilton room. We would have had breakfast there if it wasn't for the 17 Euro cost per person - a bit on the high side.

  • Couple
    8.8

    Very good service, clean room, nice location.

    Above my room (21st) there was a condition system, which made a lot of noise.

  • Group of friends
    7.0

    Easy of access to the rest of Ghent. Friendly reception staff.

    Once booking online I asumed that breakfast was included, it was not.

  • Older travelers
    7.0

    Location.

    Staff's knowledge lack of area and simple things like weather forecast.They were mostly pleasant and cordial.

  • Older travelers
    9.6

    Splendid Location, comfort and breakfast. We fully can recommend this hotel for a city trip. The gratis Internet was a surprise for us. No complains.

  • Single
    7.4

    Peaceful. Large, spacious and comfortable room. Excellent location. Pleasant staff.

    Bathroom a little out-of-date; a few small things looked a bit old (e.g. some cracked bathroom tiles, a bit of damage to the sink).

  • Older travelers
    7.4

    Exelent position near all the interesting sites of Gent. Wonderfull view from the window directly on the castle of the Counts of Flanders.

    On the 3-d floor the room is small with small window and roof constructions just between the end of the bed and the begining of the table. It is not very easy to get to your place for sleep... However it is still larger then a room of the same class in Paris on Monmartr. I think there is no such problems for the rooms on 2-nd floor, which have big windows, however possible that it is not as cheap. But the castle one would see from the 3-d floor - it is compensaton for the room size...

  • Older travelers
    10.0

    The rooms were clean, very lovely and comfortable, well stocked. The staff were well trained, the in house breakfast was well presented and abundant.

  • Couple
    5.8

    Location

    Rooms are not that good. When you are on toilet or bathroom, you can see the light trough the ceiling.

  • Family with children
    9.6

    Great location - just past the Castle. Easy access to the major sites.

    Breakfast is not included and is expensive. There are few locations close by for breakfast.I'm not sure what is served but 17E is a bit much.

  • Group of friends
    4.2

    Winter blankets in middle of summer in a room filled with mosquito's where the airco doesn't work. Entire hotel was empty, but we got the room furthest away from reception all the way in the attic, just above a street open for construction. At 7 in the morning the drilling started.

  • Couple
    7.4

    The hotel is very well situated, clean, and the staff was very helpful

    toilet separate from the bathroom but without washbasin. There was no view (firewall next to our window). Difficult to get fresh air.

  • Older travelers
    8.8

    Very central and convenient to the historical city centre. Clean rooms in the new part of the hotel.

  • Single
    6.2

    Good location for centre of Gent. good comfertable bed.

    The room wasn't resently renovated (if it was then very poor workmanship) as was stated when booking the hotel, as the renovated part was in another building. Also parking is a problem. the hotel says it has parking but only for about 10 cars max, this can be a problem as you cant per book car park, which I think they should do as this will prevent customers from turning up and having to park the carf 200-300 meter away from the hotel in a public car park. Also if you have a big car don't bother trying. Also bike in gym was away for repair.

  • Older travelers
    5.8

    Its location

    The beds were terrible. Soft and caving in the middle. One get up in the morning with a backache. The radiattor that was suppose to provide heat did not work. No heat in the room.
