Received a warm welcome from the young man at reception when we arrived...our room was only accessible by stairs so he carried our luggage up the 2 flights of stairs for us. The room was spacious, comfortable and clean. Excellent selection of food at the self-...

I was wondering what to write, as every hotel I've stayed in so far had something that was unique/quirky and things that can be improved. In this case everything was pleasurable and mainstream. We chose the hotel due to its excellent location for a stay in Ghent, taking into account its overall good reviews. I can only add to these...

This hotel is right in the historical centre of Gent, which was nice for exploring the city. We came around noon but was told that our room was not ready until 3 pm but we were able to park our car at the hotel parking lot (a very small one). The hotel parking lot is cheaper than other nearby public...

Originally we booked to stay at a 4 star hotel belonging to the same chain (Ghent River Hotel) but, for some reasons, we have been redirected here. The building interiors are very nice and the location is perfect. Unfortunately the night we spent there was not terrible but not what you would expect from a 3 star Belgian hotel in...

This and the stair rail was loose, we advised them and...

Our room was very quiet no one above us or next to us. Walking distance to...

This hotel is located by the castle and within walking distance to the sights of the city. There is parking, but only for about 12 cars - so you need luck on your side. Don't be put off by the narrow street to access the hotel by car - drive down the street and turn into the hotel car park...
