We loved Ghent, and the apartment was central to the heart of the old city. Enough off the main street (50 yards) to be a little quieter, but you can't escape the church bells! They are part of the charm, but could be too much for some. The apartment was great, and Niels was very helpful, but the TV never worked and there was an issue with water leaking in under the balcony door during a rainstorm. Without those issues, a 5 for sure.
