Stayed here for three nights while attending a conference in Ghent. This hotel is not in the central historic tourist zone-- about a 20-30 minute walk south. However, for me it was very convenient, very close to the train station (didn't have to drag my luggage far), and also near the art museums (my main destination). It was easy to walk to the center at other times for meals and tourist things, though there was plenty to eat in the immediate vicinity of the hotel too (not isolated at all). A tram passes in front that can carry you straight to the center, but I walked.
I had a single room, very quiet, facing the back into other buildings (no view at all, but I wasn't hanging out there). Nice super-clean and modern bathroom with shower, small desk, big TV, all in working order. Card entry to room and to hotel after hours, no issues there. Water boiler in the room for instant coffee or tea, replenished daily. Large FREE breakfast (included in price) served daily on the top floor of the hotel in a very attractive breakfast room: eggs, bacon, cold cuts, fresh fruit, assorted yummy fresh pastries, toast and jam, coffee, juice, etc. Very pleased by this! Nice view from the breakfast room looking out over the city.
The staff were helpful and efficient-- no complaints. I'd definitely stay here again, given the super-low price and convenience to the station, unless business required me to be in the center. Overall, I'm very pleased to have picked this hotel! less
