We have just returned from 4 nights at this hotel, attending a conference in Ghent. It is rather like a hall of residence inside. Our room was perfectly adequate, and we slept well. I agree with other reviewers that the bathroom is very small, but it was manageable, and always kept clean. Space was well utilised, eg the full length... More

Stayed for one night. Plus points- right in the centre of the city, clean room, and not a lot else. Otherwise very small an expensive room, and a very expensive breakfast , which is pretty par for the course in Ghent i think- certainly no better than an Etap hotel in other parts of Europe.

Great location. The tram 1 stops right in front of the hotel, and its a easy 10 minute walk to city center. We came with a 5 month old baby, and they were very accommodating with giving us a handicap room that had more space for the cot. Breakfast is expensive at 14 euros/person. But since it's a great location,... More

Good hotel for a short stay in Ghent. Room was clean and functional. Bed very comfortable. Tram 1 stops outside and can take you to the station. Opposite is an excellent shop/cafe for breakfast called Stacino - 5 euros instead of 14 euros at the hotel.

Stayed here with friends for a weekend break. Perfect place to drop bags and head out and experience beautiful Ghent. Rooms are very small, but clean. Staff polite and helpful. Would not recommend the restaurant as there are some lovely ones nearby.
