Perfect location for visiting Ghent. Could not find any faults. Can not recommend this fine hotel highly enough. You step into a world of Romanticism when you walk in the front door . We could not resist nestling ourselves in front of the very inviting open fire in the foyer and sipping our first beverage in Ghent whilst chatting with...

Very nice not to big hotel, a warm welcome in this beautiful building with history. Room and breakfast was excellent. Walking distance from the center (20 min.) makes this a good location for city visits. We will go here again !

Just outside the historical center, a short walk from the Cathedral, situated in a beautiful mansion. The Hancelot building comes with charm, and so does the staff. Kind and very attentive. Excellent breakfast serving, abundant. The room may us feel 'burghers' from way back.

Quite a special place in the Belle Epoque style and antique details such as the beautiful stairway. Staff (owners ?) are very friendly, a coffee was offered when checking in! The city center is at a walking distance, a tramway is within a 100 m. Parking (at 15€ per night) is available and is a good option. Breakfast is excellent....

A very nice and interesting room and bathroom. A good breakfast buffet. The hotel has a lot of antique details ans is very impressing. It is nearby the center of Gent and it has his own garage. You easy can walk from the hotel to the center and otherwise you can take the tram.

For an officially 2 star hotel, this is excellent. 1840s building, an ex-business baron's house, with many original features, it makes a pleasant change from plastic business hotels. got here late, post 11pm, and was given a very friendly welcome plus a refreshment which was a nice touch. creaking floorboards, and tired looking decor only helped confirm that this is...

The staff were very friendly and helpful. The room was spotless and beautiful. The breakfast room brings you back and makes you feel like you are sitting in a old dining hall. The breakfast was very varied and plentiful.

This hotel was great, with excellent service and buffet breakfast. We stayed two nights. Parking was our only issue, and although we had a spot reserved inside at $15 Euros, the 2 nd night, right outside the front a spot was open when we returned at 10 pm. The next morning our car was towed away, as the construction crews...
