눉The location isn't exactly ideal -- it's a 20 minute walk to the old part of town, and there are few shops close by. Nevertheless, I always felt perfectly safe, even as a single woman. The ONLY thing that irritated me was that the TV came on automatically every time I placed the door card in its slot to turn on the electricity. I unplugged the TV, so that solved that, but of course the staff re-plugged it after cleaning. I couldn't access any English-speaking channels (and unfortunately, my Dutch and French are non-existant) so I couldn't watch anything on TV - but hey, I didn't come to Ghent to watch TV! Breakfast was disappointing (I felt it was a bit 'cheap' on quality of ingredients - don't bother with the cereals - and no little jugs were available to take milk back to your table for English tea drinkers like me), so I cooked my own breakfasts most days. NB that shops close early in Ghent!! (There are wonderful speciality bakeries and cheese stores in this town, but they take some finding.) Be sure to stock up on food supplies early in the day.
눇A good sized single-bedroom apartment, with dining table, separate study desk, kitchenette, comfy bed, lovely bathroom, nice view across to the old part of town. All clean, new, nice quality, and well laid out. All perfect, really. The staff are lovely and speak English fluently.
