location and bed
the staff were unfriendly
Comfortable room, good location.
Breakfast very expensive, especially considering the choice of several restaurants in the nearby market square. Extortionate price for 2 cokes in the bar!
Toilet floor really dirty and toilet stunk
It was clean and quiet at night. The staff were friendly and helpful too.
You can't do weight lifting in the gym.
Happy Hour. Breakfast room and comprehensive menu. Design/Function of shower.
Unclear instructions on availability of car parking (upon arrival.)
Good location for City Centre.Quiet & comfortable
Great location. Very comfortable. Good value.
Staff were fine, but could have been a bit friendlier.
Generally a good price hotel, in a good location. Quiet yet near the town centre. Boak Bar opposite nice place to start
Nothing! Though did not try the Wifi internet
Location, friendly staff
Modern hotel, staff were very friendly and the location is perfect being close to everything.
The bathroom was modern but our toilet seat was broken and the bath was thin plastic which dipped when you stood in it.
Just a few steps away from the central Vrijdagmarkt square and therefore all the main sites of Gent. Superb breakfast selection.
A really excellent hotel for a short stay in Gent. Good position, very friendly staff and nicely presented hotel.
The Hotel is central, comfortable and private. About everything is walking distance with restaurants, shops, old town etc. around the corner
There were no coffee and tea facilities in the room. These always make you feel welcome!
Easy walking distance to centre. Breakfast was good, but expensive if not included with your room. Sauna was good value. We stayed in an Executive room which was good value and overlooked the river. It was very quiet at night, so we had good nights sleep.
Our friends stayed in the standard room which although was clean, had grubby furniture in, which was not nice. Would have been better to not have the chairs in at all! The beds were low, and the pillows were cheap polyester with lumps.
Location, lovely large room, views good. Helpful reception staff.
Very thin walls and ceilings left us listening to other guests nocturnal activities. Expensive breakfast, expensive mini bar
Easy walking to everything.. Breakfast excellent..
Breakfast dining room Close to historic centre
WiFi did not work in room
Location is perfect. Breakfast (don't pay extra for this) if included is super! Beds where low but OK. We had a small bathroom but with a nice shower (although the door didnt close). A pole in the middle of the bathroom made it difficult for us to use it at the same time. By husband used therefore his imagination to do his hair.. However, when going to Gent, I would return to this hotel. If only the wifi would improve..
Wifi was a challenge for us. Our room was too far from reception-router but close to a different router. At the reception you get a ticket for 1 day wifi. Challenging codes.. We had to log in at the reception before going to our room.. The wifi didn't always enter our room...
Car Parking is in a public park about 100 metres away, if this is full then the next car park is quite some distance. Rooms are not well insulated from noise coming from adjacent rooms. Don't be fooled by the nice pictures of the Crypt, it exists but is closed the bar is attached to reception
Hotel location and overall comfort were very good
Aged and poorly maintained room facilities.
The location was very central to Gent city. The hotel room was clean and breakfast room,food and staff were nice. There was a good few English speaking channels on TV. The bath was lovely and big.
The reception staff were quiet rude on arriving, asking did I have a business card to stay there? I had to explain 2 times that we were on a city break. The cleaning staff were a bit pushy on getting us out from the room, we were leaving at 11 each morning.
The room was spacious, quiet, very clean and very comfortable with a splendid view on the waterway. The hotel location is perfect : in the historic area of Gent in a quiet street near excellent restaurants and near the lively Vriidagmarkt place. Nice breakfast in a nice breakfast room.
The entrance and the corridors are sometimes messy, the staff too much distant and the lift very very slow. Some details are annoying like the water flow in the shower which is hazardous and the room door that we have to slam to close it.
