Biggest advantage of the hotel is the location: right across Saint Nicholas' church. A restaurant and a covered parking is available as well. Access to the parking is from Hoogpoort street (the entrance in the parking is on the left just before the point where the car access is forbidden) The rooms are not very big (compared with Novotel standard),...

Very pleased with the Novotel Gent Centrum. It is literally on the doorstep of all the wonderful things you will want to do in Gent. The hotel was clean, the staff friendly and the breakfast was fresh and delicious. Definitely recommended.

Great staff, good food, good conference facilities. Unfortunately, the rooms are not nice at all and would need thorough renovation. Carpet is nowhere near clean, coloring depressing, furniture old and worn.

Best value for being right in the city center. The rooms were very large and the beds were great. Very close to tram stop if coming in by train. Didn't eat there but had a nice bar and the restaurant looked very nice.

Stayed at the Gent Novotel for 1 night and paid 170 Euros for a Jr. Suite. Room: The room was clean and very spacious. 2 rooms, one living room and one bed room. The best was the balcony with a view on Gent city. Very nice. The room was for the rest standard. No luxury, but it was a good...

The hotel is located in the centre of the old part and everything is within easy walking distance. The hotel is great BUT check the TV in your room before the maintenance man goes home! Our TV did not function at all. The reception staff could do nothing apart from offer a change of room which is not very helpful...

I'd thoroughly recommend this hotel if you don't need to park your car. The car park is shockingly designed. The spaces are very tight for anything more than a mini. Plus they charge a disgraceful €30 for the privilege to park there.

Dear Rob, Thank you for sharing your feedback regarding Novotel Gent Centrum. I am delighted to read that you would recommend our hotel to others. Since November the parking prices in Ghent have nearly doubled. The Ghent policy is to discourage visitors to drive the car inside Ghent, but use the car parks around Ghent, combined with public transport. We...

We took a taxi from Ghent St Peters train station which cost €8.5. we arrived early but our rooms were ready and check in was quick. Reception staff very helpful. Rooms were at the side of the hotel so very quiet. We had a couple of drinks in the bar before exploring, again bar staff very pleasant. As has been...

We stayed at Novotel Ghent for 2 nights whilst visiting the city. The hotel is very centrally located, just a stone's throw from the Belfry and other sights. Staff were friendly and rooms were comfortable. We had interconnecting rooms as travelling with teenage children. Younger families can all stay in single room and use sofa bed for youngsters. We didn't...

The Novotel is in an excellent location - 2/3 minutes from the main square and within 5-10 minutes of pretty much all the sites. It is set just off the main square which helps keep the noise down at night. As with all the old town hotels, it is about a 10-15 taxi journey from the St Pieter railway station...
