The only downside is parts looked a little dated and the elevators looked like they were mid-renovations and very small.
Superbly located in beautiful Gent, we were greeted by a very friendly, fluent English speaking receptionist. We opted to pay €15 to upgrade to an executive room and it was definitely worth it! The room was big, bed was huge, comfortable and the bathroom was obviously newly renovated with a shower, bath (which easily fit the two of us in after a long day walking around for you romantic types) and double basins. Very quiet room (despite the hoards of football fans partying outside after their premiership win!) we heard no street noise at all.
