    Great place! Sven the owner is a wonderful host. Place is immaculate. Bed is really comfy. Location is close to the centre, but far away enough that it is peaceful and quite. Great value. Wish we stayed longer

    Does anyone know if The Boatel Hotel in Ghent is still in business? I can't find an active website and the last reviews on Tripadviser were in 2012. I haven't tried the telephone yet as I thought I would try you lovely people first! Thanks
