“Delightful Hideaway in Patershol”
Reviewed 13 June 2015 for a stay in June 2015

We recently spent six nights in Ghent, could not be better pleased with our choice of accommodation. The apartment was ideal for our needs, spacious and extremely well appointed and provisioned. Our hosts, Pol and Hilde were very charming and helpful, nothing too much trouble , we were very thankful for their knowledge of the area and also for the lift to the railways station on our day of departure. Thank you again for making our stay so pleasant in your lovely apartment in your fantastic city.

“Spacious yet cosy apartment with welcoming and helpful owners.”

people found this review helpful

The apartment is very spacious with a decent kitchen and a private outdoor terrace. It is very close to the old castle in the centre of the city but very quiet as it is down a little alleyway.
The owners were particularly friendly and helpful.
There were quite a few extras such as a coffee machine, tea, coffee and most things you need if you want to stay in and cook.
Would definitely go back.

“A hidden gem”
Reviewed 1 April 2015 for a stay in March 2015

This is a great little (in fact quite spacious) apartment, hidden away in Ghent. It is a perfect location for exploring the old city and for restaurants and other attractions. Hilde and Pol are excellent hosts and provide everything you need. It is very quiet and comfortable and ideal for a few days R&R in Ghent

“Lovely apartment in great location”
Reviewed 13 January 2015 for a stay in September 2014

From the initial contact to when we left the apartment contact with the Pol & Hilde was positive, efficient and welcoming. Having the owners onsite has once again proven to be a great advantage. The apartment was spotlessly clean, well equipped and everything worked. The courtyard was a real bonus as the weather was very kind to us. The apartment was steeped in history as it was in the very old area of Patershol - an area that was very lucky to escape the "modernisers" wrecking ball. We delighted in being able to walk in and out of the old, narrow, cobblestoned streets.

The location of the apartment was very convenient. It was close enough to walk into the centre of the old city and very close to transport if you wanted to go a little further afield. A small but adequate grocery store was very close by the apartment.

We would certainly recommend Achterhuis-Patershol most highly.

“Spotless Apartment”
Reviewed 11 January 2015 for a stay in January 2015

person found this review helpful

We stayed at the Achterhuis for 4 nights over ther New Years holiday and immensely enjoyed our stay. Pol and Hilde provided us with very simple directions to the apartment and warmly welcomed us upon arrival. We were immediately impressed with the cleanliness and size. The bedroom is very large and has a very comfortable king sized bed and there is ample storage for clothing. The bathroom was also very spacious and warm in the mornings. Lots of large bath and hand towels. You are able to control the heat throughout the apartment. The kitchen/living area was again large and equipped with everything you would need for a short stay. Just off the kitchen area was a very nice outdoor area which would be wonderful on a summers day. The apartment is on two floors and both rooms have very large windows which provide nice views and beautiful sunlight.
Achterhuis is located in a very quite residential neighborhood backing on to a green space.
It is just a short walk to all the attractions of the medieval part of the city and there are many small restaurants and shops nearby.
Pol and Hilde were a wonderful couple and provided us with all the information required to enjoy our stay in beautiful Ghent. Very highly recommended!
