    Really quirky place.

    15 Euro to park my motorcycle.

    I rather liked this hotel but it wouldn't be to everybody's taste! If you're looking for a modern facility with en-suite bathroom then look elsewhere. If you don't mind a few quirks then read on! The room was rather austere, in keeping with its former role as a monastery I suppose - although the bed was really comfortable and they provide a dressing gown and slippers to go to the shower area which was a nice touch. The toilet was a bit of a wander and the single one on my floor (actually down some stairs on the landing) didn't flush. What a venue though - it's worth taking a little while to explore as some of the larger spaces are quite lovely. I picked it for price, availability at short notice and it's in a great location right in the heart of Ghent. It also has secure off road parking which met my needs exactly - and I was even able to leave my motorbike for a few hours after checkout to explore the town. I would have liked to try breakfast but I thought an additional 17 Euro's was a little bit steep - given the proximity to the centre of Ghent I visited a local bakery instead. Would happily stay here again on a solo visit.

    Great value for money. Almost right in downtown Gent. Even the low-end rooms are comfy. The whole building, being a very old monastery, has a special feeling.

    Location was great, especially during Gentse Feesten

    It was really warm in the room, but then it was also exceptionally warm outside
