4/5 Good

Pros: Excellent location in Ghent city centre. Good clean air-conditioned room. Very comfortable bed. Good bathroom. Cons:Parking available but expensive.Optional breakfast is expensive. Overall I would recommend this hotel.

Stayed 1 night in Jun 2019


Excellent location and, to be honest, that's all we cared about. So boutique as to almost be a B&B. The room was clean and, as we've come to discover in Europe, toasty warm (getting used to sleeping with windows wide open!) Tub/shower was awkward and slippery. Typical oddities of a small European hotel but... fine.

5/5 Excellent

The location was perfect for sightseeing and walking around historic Ghent. The Gravensteen Castle is just around the corner and there are lots of restaurants, bars, and shops to visit. We had a lovely room on the third floor and although there were some stairs to climb, we loved the view and the numerous windows. The room was spacious and the bed was large and comfortable. We would stay here again.

4/5 Good

Location is very good and there is parking. The breakfast was a little ‘old fashioned’ with eggs quite over cooked, but otherwise quite acceptable. My room was huge and with a good bathroom.
