I booked it for 2 nights, but since my connected flight got delayed and I spent night in a city of my connection - I arrived one day late. My booking got somehow updated, when I tried to notify the hotel about my delay, and I was pleasantly surprised, when I only got charged for 1 night at the check-out....

The kettle for the the was dirty. Breakfast at 17 Euro but nothing special, I could make the because I was not able to find a clean...

I booked a standard room well in advance in his hotel. I wasn't expecting luxury but honestly, the state of the room I was allocated was so poor I left and went somewhere else. I made my views clear to the management and have told them that the room is not fit for public letting. I believe some rooms have...

Rooms were organised for us as part of a work meeting. The monastery is in the heart of Ghent. The rooms, while dated, were functional and comfortable. I thought it was a lovely and unique experience, and while not a 5 star experience, at these prices, it was excellent value for money.

a very charming authentic convent from 1200. tucked away from the streets, gardens, comfortable simple rooms. Breakfast is E17.00/p/p huge buffet selection, you can even make a sandwich snack for later! Conveniently located to all the sites walking distance. Funny little bar area that needs a bit more ambience.....Restaurant not always open.

If you only wish to have a private room then this is fine. The bathroom was shared but never found it occupied. Location is 5 mins from the city centre so you do not need to spend too much time at the hotel. Main issue i had with my room was that the door had glass above it meaning that...

Great location in the centre of town. Quiet. Cheap. Not for taking the wife or a romantic weekend away but for other trips a good base. Very good breakfast available. Bar with good selection of drinks. Nice reception. Parking. Easy to find from the station with a map although will need to catch a tram first. Room is ok. Take...

The photos are of our room. This was the third room that they offered us and we were told we should be paying extra because they up graded us. My son was staying in a hostel and it looked better.

What a lovely place to stay!! The location is ideal for the centre of Ghent and it a really beautiful place. We had a twin room and it was massive. The shower is excellent! The bar was lovely and quiet and a great place for a quick drink before exploring. Was a shame we were only here for 1 night....
