Beautiful use of Ghent Landmark

What a neat property. The building is beautiful, and the decor is both spartan and tongue-in-cheek. Totally appropriate for a former monastery! Really friendly staff. Only issue might be that the floors are creaky and the walls are rather thin. So maybe not the best place to go if you plan on being anything but on the quiet side! (Unless you’re an exhibitionist...) neighborhood is just off the main drag, an easy walk from all the beauty of old Ghent.

It is really a cool place! Convenient to walk to downtown and historic sites. Still under renovation, our rooms were fresh and clean, though the staircase is awaiting an update. There is an elevator too.

Bit of building work going on, which was not a problem at all and will make the hotel even better. Loved our stay here.
