Very nice hotel in a great location, less than 50m from the Cathedral and a short walk from the Leie canal. Comfortable rooms, clean and COVID safe, off-street parking in the basement (€26 per night)

Affordable central hotel in Ghent - reccommended!
Amazing location right in the centre and at a very reasonable price for Ghent, which is otherwise quite expensive. Everywhere is walkable and there are loads of good bars and restaurants nearby. The hotel was quiet and you can't hear the cathedral bells - good sound proofing! Comfortable bed and good strong shower. The rooms is quite small, but perfect for a short stay. Recommended - I would stay here again.

Excellent location, clean rooms, new furniture
The location is central but very quiet. The room is well designed, everything is in the right place. So despite being small it was OK for two people. The mattress could be a bit better, it tends to slip off the bed.
