A beautiful hotel in the Belle Epoche style, with great comfort and hospitality. Also great for visiting Ghent. If you appreciate fine architecture and original features from the 19th Century, this is the place for you!

For an officially 2 star hotel, this is excellent. 1840s building, an ex-business baron's house, with many original features, it makes a pleasant change from plastic business hotels. got here late, post 11pm, and was given a very friendly welcome plus a refreshment which was a nice touch. creaking floorboards, and tired looking decor only helped confirm that this is...

The staff were very friendly and helpful. The room was spotless and beautiful. The breakfast room brings you back and makes you feel like you are sitting in a old dining hall. The breakfast was very varied and plentiful.

This hotel was great, with excellent service and buffet breakfast. We stayed two nights. Parking was our only issue, and although we had a spot reserved inside at $15 Euros, the 2 nd night, right outside the front a spot was open when we returned at 10 pm. The next morning our car was towed away, as the construction crews...

This is a lovely old clothiers house 15 minutes walk from the centre of town and right by a tram line if you don't fancy the walk. The indoors is sumptuously decorated with high ceilings and ornate original features. The couple running it are professionally qualified in the hotel industry and making a really great go of their first hotel....

An excellent choice for Ghent. The hotel has a great vintage character that works perfectly with the city's image. In addition, the staff is very friendly and eager to help and the breakfast delicious! Definitely worth staying.

Hotel Charme Hancelot is tucked away in a small street about ten minutes walk from the centre of Ghent. It's a delightful hotel with 12 individually-styled rooms, with proper personal service. The owners are friendly and so helpful: you are greeted upon check-in with a drink and a chat about the area should you require it, and nothing is too...

A charming historical hotel, much nicer than 'could be anywhere in the world' modern hotels. Our room was large with a grand antique bed, fireplace, wardrobe etc. The management was friendly. Breakfast was good-continental, nicely presented, also available scrambled eggs and bacon. Would be happy to return.
