So we spent 4 nights in the Ducale for a long weekend in Ghent. The owners are very friendly and overall we are very pleased that we stayed there. We stayed in the comfort room, and the bed was really comfy, and it was very quiet at night. The location is spotless, you are about a 5 minute walk away...

My husband and I spent 1 night at La Ducale in September 2012. This B&B is very centrally located, and provides a good value for the price. It is easy to miss - we walked by a few times before we noticed the bell and the little sign beside it. The owner is a very nice lady, helpful and cheerful....

We rented a room at this B&B. A local friend luckily took the trouble of doing a 'pre-inspection' of the room and, not being satisfied with the standards of the rooms, reported to us that he had re-negotiated for us to be given an 'upgrade' instead, one of the apartments the owners 'renovated' - read "make look good at first...

We were spending one night in Ghent for a reunion and La Ducale was about the only reasonably priced accomodation we could find. The location was great, very central. The beds were not made up when we arrived but as we were early it didnt matter but when we returned at 6pm to shower before dinner the beds were still...

After annoying slow train journey from bruges we arrived in gent, pie eyed from the night before. We took a taxi from the gent station to the hotel which cost 10 euro between 3 of us, which in general consensus was deemed reasonable value by the group. On arrival to the appartments/hotel/B&B we walked in and up some stairs and...

Last week I stayed in La Ducale for one night, and though I have travelled to many poor countries, I never slept in such dirty sheets as in La Ducale. I choose La Ducale because it is really in the centre of Ghent. The location is just perfect. That is not the case for the accomodation, though it has just...

Although we booked and received email confirmation in advance for a 5 bed apartment at La Ducale, when we arrived at 4pm the owner had no recollection of our booking and we had to hang around for 2 hours for the owners to prepare the apartment. The accommodation was extremely minimal with scuff marks all over the walls and very...

We were really surprised with how spacious the room/apartment, it was newly refurbished, very neat & clean, fresh towels and linens, breakfast was adequate, very friendly manager/owner and last but not least GREAT GREAT location! right in the middle of the city!...

The room was dirty, inadequate, with a very difficult door lock, and the shower had very little water pressure and did not have any running hot water to use for a shower. The electrics were dangerous as the plugs were bare wire exposed and loose. The room was under construction, holes for lights in the ceiling, a make shift bathroom...

The place from the moment you enter the building gives you the idea of being hosted to a friend's house. The owners are very hospitable and pleasant people! The room that we stayed in was at the second floor, and according to the owner was the big one. And it was actually very comfortable. It was also very quite! I...
