Shame about receptionists but apart from them, this place is well worth stopping over. The bar staff were friendly. The breakfast choices are great whatever you dietary needs. You do have to pay for parking and watch out for the local tax charge. I was expecting a charge but it was a lot more than quoted. Please note that you...

Dear Mr Tricklewood, Thank you for your feedback and score. We are surprised and sorry to hear about your feedback about our reception staff which is very rare. We will address this of course to our Front Office Manager. On the other hand it pleases us to read your feedback about our bar staff and breakfast. Hopefully, we get to...

This Holiday Inn is right next to the Gent Expo. If on a Saturday the fair is finished and the waiting time to check-in is almost 30 minutes, you can NOT use the fair as an excuse. You are next to it, deal with it and have extra staff ready when needed. Just like on the morning of check-out, when...

Dear Raymond K, Thank you for your feedback and score. We apologize for the inconveniences you experienced. It is not our intention to use a fair as an excuse for the long waiting time. However, I'm sure you understand that check-in times of guests are unpredictable as well as the unpredictability whether they all come in at once or separately....

Staying with family. Room was small and included sofa bed. The sofa bed was not made. The pillows in the wardrobe were dirty. The room was outdated. The location is not near the city center. The tram takes 25 minutes. There is a lot of construction work happening which makes it confusing to find your way to the hotel. The...

We spent two nights here and it was just wonderful! Had room service for both evening meals and it was very good as was the service. The room was very nice and the front desk staff was even nicer. Would absolutely stay here again.

Have stayed here many times over the years when attending events at the Expo, or as a convenient overnight stop. Yes, there's a lot of building work near the hotel which has caused a lot of ridiculous comments in other reviews. It's a big project, but it's getting better and the hotel's signs are fine if you follow them. Yes,...

I was here for a 2 day course. I ate breakfast and was looked after very well by the staff. However this is a large place I immediately felt the warm cosyness of the inner square. I can't put my finger on it but I loved it. It was a calm place in this chaotic world. They have all sorts...

I was one night there. It is quite convenient as out of town near the motorway. The hotel is quite big. The room are clean. Size OK. Breakfast is OK with some broad choice.

We booked the Holiday Inn at the Ghent expo because of its location, ease of access and close proximity to Brugges.

It's true that the décor is looking a little dated, and the massive building works surrounding it can be off putting at first sight. BUT the location is convenient (just follow the signs from the motorway, not your satnav), accommodation prices are always reasonable and the staff in all areas are helpful and friendly. I've stayed a few times over...

Holiday Inn Gent Expo does not have the best location. It is located out of the old town and you will need to go by tram and walk 200 metres to get there. However, what it is lacking in location is more than being made up by the quality of service. I was provided with 4 bottles of water (2...
