Holiday Inn Gent Expo does not have the best location. It is located out of the old town and you will need to go by tram and walk 200 metres to get there. However, what it is lacking in location is more than being made up by the quality of service. I was provided with 4 bottles of water (2...

Quite hard to find specially if you don't have a GPS adding the small construction occurring. 10euro park fee day. Best to park just across the lane still free.... Understaffed.. Only 1receptionist. Rooms are OK. Bathrooms OK. Nice warm water. Bathtub bit rusty Try to avoid the ground floor. Quite noisy.

Firstly like other reviewers have mentioned is the poor access to the hotel. I am new to driving abroad and this layout was enough to induce a panic attack, especially with it being dark when I arrived. At one point I thought I would never find access. The car park is below the hotel, which means you have to drag...

It's great for an overnight but there is public transport not far so can be used for spending time in Gent for discovering the city. We had a consultation at UZ Gent in the early hours, it was a 5 min drive from the hotel. Our room was great, updated with a couch. Mattress was hard but it's usually hard...

I booked via booking.com as I was searching for a competitively priced hotel and found the Holiday Inn quite competitive, however, only to find that we then couldn't claim our reward points for our stay! It has since been pointed out to me that it is in the terms and conditions but I think it's a very bad idea and...

Stayed here twice on the way out and on the way back to and from the UK.

Breakfast was pretty good too and free wifi ok for my simple...
