    I just stayed for the second time this year. It’s an incredibly beautiful property, with handsome design details. Initially, I only visited Ghent for this hotel; both the hotel and the town exceeded my expectations. We plan to return again and again. Rooms are cozy and have really elevated touches like coffee and tea makers in the room, bar essentials for cocktails and even little cutting boards with lemons etc for a twist. Everything feels very special and cozy. The hotel is chic and cozy.

    Beautiful hotel in perfect location. Staff was extremely friendly and helpful, the only downside was the bed was a bit to soft for me which made it difficult to sleep.
