We booked this place as the photos looked good and the reviews were very positive. When we arrive the lobby was just as we had pictured, we got given the wifi code and our room key for a room on the third floor. When we got to our room I notice a slight smell and the windows were open so...

We are not the type of couple to complain but were quite astounded to be given a room on the third floor right next to a fire escape which was being worked on by builders during the day with just a sheet shielding the interior from the outside. The draught was such that we had to place cushions as draft...

We went for a twixtmas two night break to enjoy the winter markets. The hotel is ideally situated to access all the town's central sights on foot, and close to the canals and river to offer out of town strolls also. The accommodation was graciously understated and the breakfast buffet which was included in our price proved to be possibly...

Perfect. Nice little hotel with character, close to the castle and town centre. The breakfast is plentiful and good quality food, Room is spacious, clean and comfy bed and pillows. tea/coffee making facility in room. there is private parking, although a little tight but not too much a problem. highly recommended this hotel to visit Ghent.

Very well located hotel in good condition but can use some renovation here and there. But this isn’t disturbing. The old construction leads to some small & curly corridors Limited hotel car parking but public parking close by. You’re in the real center of historic Gent on a few meters from the Castle which gave his name to the hotel....

The hotel is In the middle of the many beautiful historical sites to visit, all within walking distance. The canals add to the lustre. A good guide book or tour would enhance the experience even more. Loads of restaurants and cafés to choose from all nearby.

Very well situated hotel, almost on the castle's porch, one bridge and you there. Also there are lot of other landmarks nearby. Unfortunately rooms are mostly facing inner yards, but if you there to sleep and spent better part of the day outside enjoying the city it is fine. Breakfast is also ok and being served from very early hours,...

A great hotel, centrally located in old city Ghent. The hotel is directly across from Gravensteen castle and is an easy walk to all of the action in old city Ghent. The room was clean and the price was great, especially for this area.
