the hotel is well located overlooking the river and within easy walking distance to the towns main square. We booked the secure open parking for 7euro per night and is worth every penny. We were a party of 3 males and booked the quad bedroom which consited of one room with two single beds and a second room with a double bed. There is one shower with good hot water at all times. This booking was perfect for us as it saved the third party having to pay for a single room and there was plenty of room in the apartment. the deal was very good value and hopt to return next year

I cannot recognise this excellent hotel from some of the negative reviews on this page. We found it perfect for our needs. The location is just right for central Ghent, the buffet breakfasts provided a good choice of hot and cold food but, above all, the staff could not have been more friendly and helpful. On checking in we found our rooms unsuitable and we were allocated different rooms immediately without even a 'frown' or a 'tut tut'.
Apart from efficiency and friendliness the staff displayed endless patience in giving advice and directions. The barman went to great lengths to explain the long list of Belgian beers available in the bar
One minor complaint - the rooms were too warm for our taste - but we Brits are notorious for liking cold bedrooms.
So - if you are a fussy nit picker there is a five star hotel down the road at twice the price. If you appreciate a small family run hotel - then the 'Flandre' is waiting to greet you

Room Tip: Beware of he 'loft rooms' if you don't like stairs

Unfortunately the hotel is a bit tired. The exterior is a little scruffy, and the rooms a little dated, perfectly clean, but old furniture. We stayed one night on a night when the temperature was around 25 degrees, so the room was stifling. The hotel is also on a busy road junction, so keeping the windows open meant that sleeping was a problem. The hotel is very convenient for the town centre and the station, and we discovered a cabin opposite the station for pain au chocolate and coffee, rather than have the hotel breakfast. Parking is in a secure compound, very good for motorbikes. The staff were fantastic, extremely helpful and had lots of advice for local visits around the area. I wouldn't recommend a long stay here, but it's perfectly acceptable for one night.

Not a great hotel but its ok value for the money.

The location is pretty good. Short walk across the bridge to the centre of town.

It is a wee bit dated but they are refurbishing the public areas.

I found the room and the bed quite comfortable.

All in all its about right for the money

Stayed here for 1 night with my mother on the 3rd night of a 5 night trip to France. Our first 2 nights had been great as the hotels were lovely (neither expensive or 5*)
I knew this was going to be cheap & cheerful but although cheap it certainly wasn't cheerful.
However, the lady & gentleman at reception were lovely so that was a good start. Sadly that was pretty much it for positives!
I asked for a quiet room but we were given 1 overlooking the very busy main road & river, so we were prepared for some noise.
The room was tired & shabby with saggy twin beds that looked like a horse had just vacated them. But the room was clean
Then we checked out the bathroom.....ugh! It was small, cramped & really 3rd world with large pipes all over & a tiny dim light over the basin being the only illumination & totally useless. There was a small shower with a virtually immovable shower head & grubby shower curtain that served no purpose as the room was flooded after 1 shower
The location was good just a short walk over the bridge took us to the centre but there wasn't a lot to do or see
That night sleep didn't come easily. The walls were paper thin & every sound from other guests penetrated the walls & ceiling. Creaking floors from above drove us crazy & went on for hours. The noise from outside was terrible but when we closed the windows it did lessen considerably but there was no air con in the room so without the windows open it was unbearably hot
Next morning we were up really early due to the noise & went over the road to a great boulangerie (almost directly opposite) & got coffees, croissants & a baguette for €4 so didn't need to pay for the hotel breakfast. We paid €7 for a lockable garage overnight at the hotel as you can't park on the street outside for longer than 4 hours
Couldn't wait to leave & wouldn't recommend unless you're a heavy sleeper or like earplugs (& shabby hotels)
