    Location

    I cannot recommend this hotel. Firstly, upon arriving at the hotel, I was ignored by the reception person. I waited at the front desk for nearly 5 minutes before I was acknowledged. The clerk was alone and on a phone call. He did not even look up from his position to acknowledge that I even existed. When he finally hung up, he was curt and cold to us as if I was bothering him. Granted, everyone has a bad day however he was representing the face of the hotel and it was bad. You don’t remember the hotel by its looks, You remember the hotel by its staff. Shame on you! Secondly, the rooms are not clean, Thirdly, the breakfast, although plentiful was at best mediocre. And lastly, the hotel has the cheapest rubber foam pillows. My neck ached. DON’T STAY HERE

    Interesting Experience

    Nice location, comfortable, clean room and facilities. Good and generous breakfast although we missed it a couple days due to poor communication at the front desk.

    We arrived in Ghent very late 11 PM. Reception desk was confused and sent us to the wrong room. It was occupied by naked people who were busy on the bed when we walked in. Amusing for us but very embarrassing for the hotel clerk. He compensated with free beer and apologies. In the excitement he forgot to tell us the breakfast area was located on the 3rd floor. We missed breakfast the first 2 mornings. Another minor irritation was the same dirty coffee cup was left in the room for 3 days, while the bed and everything else was cleaned up. Despite the small gaffes the staff were mostly friendly and helpful and the hotel was nice. We would stay here again.

    Cool rustic room in a hotel with more modern rooms too. Good sized bathroom. Nearby all the things I wanted to see but not on a main road so it was quiet.

    My room as pretty cool but a bit dark.
