We arrived at Ghent Dampoort station around 7pm and walked to the B&B. It was a pleasant 15 minute walk (we were pulling suitcases over cobble stones so that did slow us down). B&B La Ducale is easy to miss. There is a little bell with the name written on it. However, as soon as we rang the light came...

Interesting, quirky house which is right in the heart of Gent, so fantastically placed for a city weekend. Big room which was very clean. And with good bathroom. The owners Leo and DIna were very kind and helpful and very accommodating, especially as we arrived quite late. Great breakfast in the morning. But rather noisy in the morning as hotel...

Positive: Central location, the owners of the house are very friendly, they make you feel so welcome and give you great information about where to eat/drink/see. Bright cheery room. Nice but simple breakfast. Free bottles of water in your fridge all the time. Very nice toiletries left in bathroom, lots of towels too. Room wasn't finished so well eg plug...

Our room was quite finished, lovely, quiet, and felt like home. The owners were friendly and served a nice Belgian breakfast of breads, charcuterie, cheese, jam, juice, coffee, tea... I felt like I was staying in someone's home. Would definitely return!

This a very nice B&B. Very friendly people, big rooms and a nice bathtub. The breakfast was good. Free internet. Overall a good experience. Centrally located , 5 min walk to the centre. The host was friendly and very helpful. Nicer than some of the chain hotels in Gent.

The room was clean but not finished. There were light sockets missing, the windows did not close properly, the bathroom was not finished,... The bed was nice and the sheets were soft en fresh. Breakfast was not ok. We were asked at what time we would like to have breakfast the day before so we thought it would be served...

Ghent is a wonderful city! We liked it a lot! The hotel la Ducale is located close to the center (only 5 min walk from the Cathedral). It is not a hotel but a family-run bed and breakfast in an old house in the city center. Rooms are clean and quite comfortable on the 3d floor (so mind the ladder)....

I booked La Ducal in Novermber 2010 in preparation for a trip in May 2011 which included a stay in Ghent (a lovely location). A few e-mails exchanged with mine host Leo and all seemed ready. Imagine our suprise when we turned up in May 2011 (04/05) and Leo had relet our room. No explanation except a fictious e-mail which...
