The room was little but conformable. Very good bed and air conditioned. The breakfast is very good. The location is just near the center, in walk distance. You can also find a park for the car very near (but you must pay).

Perfect location, our room was comfy and clean. The complimentary robes and slippers lovely quality and breakfast was outstanding. It was lovely being able to park the car up for the weekend and relax and enjoy all that Ghent had to offer.

Great location within a 10 minute walk of all the historic city sites. Very pleasant rooms on the river. The staff members were unfailingly pleasant and helpful. Every restaurant recommendation was fantastic. Stay here.

Train station to Brussels is Ghent-Sint Pieters. Walking distance about 3km. Not too far from hotel is a busstop to the station. Taxi may be more convenient.
