    Fabulous

    We liked the large room, the many tv chanels and the breakfast buffet.

    The sauna and fitnessfacilities appeared to be closed/out of order.

    Very good

    We had a nice room in the eaves of this hotel with a very pleasant and private roof top patio. The breakfast is expensive but there are many cafes within a few minutes walk which do excellent breakfasts for less than half the price so the choice is yours if you do not pre book the breakfast.

    It is very cloose to all interesting sites of the town. Rooms are very quite with no noice from streets.

    Mouquette very old and stained. Bathroom old stile.

    Location

    The breakfast is way too expensive for what it's provided. It was included in my room rate, otherwise I wouldn't have taken it at the hotel. Juices and hot drinks from a machine, cold milk, cereals, sliced cheese and three kinds of sliced meats, a few different kinds of bread, yogurt, this definitely doesn't add up to 17 euros.

    Exceptional

    The location was amazing and the view of the castle fantastic. Easy to get to, with a tram going directly pass towards the station. A very good breakfast buffet provided. Lots of restaurants and shopping close by. Close to canal boat trips and museums. A lovely place that we will be going back to again in the near future.

    I Like the Hotel Gravensteen, staff very friendly, very nice hotel with easy access to all sights and shopping in Gent. Our room was on the top floor and was too small for two people to move around. Ther was a beam in the way of getting to the bed and the only small window in the room,Will definately stay again but not on the top floor,

    Our room as I have stated above,

    We were provided with a quite room as requested. Breakfast times and checkout time generous

    No proper lounge

    Very good

    The "deluxe" room we booked was worth the extra cost. Room 56 was a good size (with twin beds) and situated at the back of the hotel overlooking the courtyard. It was pleasantly quiet for such a central location. We were on a cycling trip and were able to leave our bikes safely on the terrace in the courtyard - very convenient. As everybody says, the central location of the hotel couldn't be better - all the attractions of Gent are within easy walking distance.

    The only real criticism concerns the ridiculous price of the breakfast (19 euros!). Can't imagine many people go for this - you can breakfast well in a lot of other places in the city for half the price!

    Location

    Rooms were poky and small and to have such old beds that look like prison beds at this price is ridiculous. The room was so small once the luggage was in we had to climb over the bed to do anything. Granted they moved us but the room was still old fashioned, inadequate a real dissapointment

    Very good

    Comfortable, large rooms. The breakfast area is decorated beautiful and the food is displayed in a very nice way. The overall look is that of a clean environment.

    The mattress was old and too soft to sleep comfortable. A kettle with coffee end tea will be nice to have in the room.

    Fabulous

    We returned to this hotel in the same week since we liked it. The room we had at the beginning of the week was perfect and our friend's room was even nicer... First time we stayed there was free parking later in the week it cost 10euro. The breakfast for e10 euro was very good and the waitstaff in the breakfast area very friendly. If you are driving to Gent for the 1st time use a GPS/compass and map. If you manage to find the tram line for the red route you can follow it to the city center (where the big castle is) and you will find the hotel.

    The second stay we had a room that was not as nice, had dust webs and damaged dirty bathroom tiles. Ask for a better room if you are not happy. The staff is very nice.

    The appearance of the entrance was very grand and impressive, however the newer part out the back and the rooms weren't as nice

    I was concerned the reception staff didn't have heating that was effective enough to keep them warm. The area may need to be enclosed for them.

    The location of this hotel is absolutely perfect for visiting Gent, right around the corner from Gravensteen.The staff is among the friendliest and most helpfull I have encountered. The breakfast was a feast well up to my swedish high breakfast standards. I had everything i needed and more at Hotel Gravensteen, I do hope I will get a chance to come back!

    it is ideally placed to explore the historic town centre

    your breakfast is over priced- it would have been better value going to a local cafe for coffee & croissants!
