I can really recommend this rather small hotel, with very nice, spacious rooms with high ceilings, all amenities, incl. bathrobe, slippers and umbrella, luscious tasty breakfast and very friendly and helpful staff at the reception desk and behind the bar. Not a bargain but a preferred choice especially if you consider the location on walking distance from the city centre and most landmarks and some of the best restaurants (do not travel to Ghent while on a diet) and bars (some serving more than 250 brands of Belgium beer) in town and some of the must-visit museums.
The hotel has a major problem with its location. The little square in front has a late night club which broadcasts music into the public realm and allows people to stand outside talking in loud voices late into the night. One night this continued (preventing sleep) until 4.30; the next until 5. Apparently the police were called on the second night but did nothing and told the hotel to stop calling the police, which is in itself pretty staggering. If this is not sorted, rooms such as the one I was staying in are uninhabitable.
It's a very nice hotel. All the staff we encountered were helpful and friendly. I even booked to stay again later in the year.
Some of the breakfast buffet ran out well before the end of the service period.
The location of this hotel was good and staff very friendly
Beds are very firm found it hard to get a good sleep
