    • 1.8

      Good location, great showers and wonderful breakfast room on the top floor overlooking picturesque old town.

      No onsite parking, but local covered parking was not too expensive and on a few hundred metres away.

    • Couple
      8.2

      Excellent location, the Vrijdagmarkt square is right around the corner. Friendly staff, good clean room.

      Breakfast was an additional €20 per person, which I found too expensive, especially since much cheaper and still very decent breakfast can be had at the Vrijdagmarkt square.

    • Older travelers
      8.8

      Great location next to the river and just on the edge of the historic city centre. Imaginative integration of the old buildings into the new hotel.

    • Group of friends
      7.8

      Great location.

      Executive double rooms was significantly smaller than I would expect from an "executive" room.

    • Older travelers
      7.4

      Location was perfect. Breakfast buffet was excellent.

      The carpet in our hotel room needs to be cleaned or replaced. The tv is mounted on the wall too high.

    • Older travelers
      7.8

      convenience of location was excellent. Room was a good size, bed was very comfortable and bathroom was also a good size.Breakfast was excellent.

      Room was slightly cold and temperature control did not work

    • Group of friends
      7.8

      Close to centre of Ghent, large bathroom and comfortable bed, size of bedroom.

      The breakfast cost of 20 euros was expensive so we ate in the local cafe

    • Couple
      5.8

      The room was supposed to be a romantic package however the room had not been prepared as such and we were given 2 single beds. The room was clean, however it was not as deluxe as had been advertised. The breakfast was also poor.

    • Couple
      5.0

      Over priced, poor sound proofing, poor room facilities, not a four star, should be a good three star at best

    • Older travelers
      7.8

      The air-conditionong did not work; the room was too warm

    • Older travelers
      5.8

      Good position and access to good parking in the market square

      Room basic, poor lighting , poor ventilation , no shaving mirror, poor shower control and one over a slippery bath , towels were grey and tired. TV could not be tuned to get BBC1

    • Group of friends
      5.4

      The location was perfect and the size of the room was excellent. In addition the buffet breakfast was very good indeed.

      This is not a four star hotel. The facilities are minimal, the lobby tiny and the in-house sauna you have to pay extra for! There is only sink in the big double room bathrooms, no bath robes and the internet is expensive and slow. The choice of tv channels was also poor for a hotel of this supposed calibre.Tables were rarely cleared in the breakfast room unless specifically requested and the small bar area was often untidy and full of old glasses.

    • Couple
      8.8

      The decor was pleasing and modern, location superb and access excellent. Close enough to the railway station, some very good restaurants and lots of shops - all within walking distance.

      The location was excellent. The staff were kind, friendly and very understanding.

    • Couple
      8.8

      the location was excellent, very close to shops and historical points of interest

      our room was opposite the breakfast room we were woken up every morning by other guests talking in the corridor

    • Couple
      7.4

      Excelent location!

      You don't realise until too late that nothing is inluded in the price apart from bed and shower. You even pay extra for using wireless internet, while in every cheapest B&B internet is free! And the smell coming from the heating system wasn't very pleasant, too.
