Great location in the City of Ghent which itself was a revelation. This hotel oozes class and understated style. Superb room with good service and great cocktails in the bar. Great value on a Sunday night.

Great boutique hotel within the stunning old building. Room was very stylish and comfortable. Staff were very friendly and professional. The highlight was The Cobbler bar which served great cocktails and entertained both guests and outside visitors.

About
Description
This small designer hotel opened in 2017 in the upper floors of Ghent’s old post office building. Located in the very heart of Ghent, the hotel offers its guests some of the best views in the city. The 38 guest’s ...More rooms are decorated in a warm style- with high ceilings, dark green walls and antique furniture – complementing the building’s late 19th century architecture. With great views through the grand window, the restored wood and indirect lighting create a cozy atmosphere accented with a contemporary touch of freshness. The natural earth colours of the interior design combine a local sense of place with a relaxed feeling of being at home. The hotel’s crowning touch is the cocktail bar – called The Cobbler, after the special type of cocktail shaker. The bar’s ambiance reflects an old-time atmosphere- with a stunning view of the spires of historic Ghent. Less
