An excellent choice for Ghent. The hotel has a great vintage character that works perfectly with the city's image. In addition, the staff is very friendly and eager to help and the breakfast delicious! Definitely worth staying.

A charming historical hotel, much nicer than 'could be anywhere in the world' modern hotels. Our room was large with a grand antique bed, fireplace, wardrobe etc. The management was friendly. Breakfast was good-continental, nicely presented, also available scrambled eggs and bacon. Would be happy to return.

The staff were very friendly and helpful, but we did not get the impression that they...

Very clean hotel with an old charm to it. The owners are really nice and they welcome you in a very personal way. Breakfast is great! It's not in the city center, but not too far away. Big rooms, private parking and a sauna onsite.
