I was here for a 2 day course. I ate breakfast and was looked after very well by the staff. However this is a large place I immediately felt the warm cosyness of the inner square. I can't put my finger on it but I loved it. It was a calm place in this chaotic world. They have all sorts...

I was one night there. It is quite convenient as out of town near the motorway. The hotel is quite big. The room are clean. Size OK. Breakfast is OK with some broad choice.

We booked the Holiday Inn at the Ghent expo because of its location, ease of access and close proximity to Brugges. Upon arrival, we were greeted by reception staff and were swiftly checked into our rooms. The rooms are clean and spacious, he overnight stay was calm and without any disruptions through the night. Highly recommend for families who would...

It's true that the décor is looking a little dated, and the massive building works surrounding it can be off putting at first sight. BUT the location is convenient (just follow the signs from the motorway, not your satnav), accommodation prices are always reasonable and the staff in all areas are helpful and friendly. I've stayed a few times over...

Holiday Inn Gent Expo does not have the best location. It is located out of the old town and you will need to go by tram and walk 200 metres to get there. However, what it is lacking in location is more than being made up by the quality of service. I was provided with 4 bottles of water (2...

Quite hard to find specially if you don't have a GPS adding the small construction occurring. 10euro park fee day. Best to park just across the lane still free.... Understaffed.. Only 1receptionist. Rooms are OK. Bathrooms OK. Nice warm water. Bathtub bit rusty Try to avoid the ground floor. Quite noisy.

Firstly like other reviewers have mentioned is the poor access to the hotel. I am new to driving abroad and this layout was enough to induce a panic attack, especially with it being dark when I arrived. At one point I thought I would never find access. The car park is below the hotel, which means you have to drag...
