We stayed here with our son in a room (really two large rooms) and three beds. Nice room, close to Art Museum, and really cheap parking (€5.50 for 24 hours).

I had a nice room looking away from the street. The hotel was very clean. Linda was a gracious and kind host with very nourishing breakfasts. The B and B was clean, close to major sights. I would recommend to anyone spending time in wonderful Gent.

There was a bad sewage smell in the room, most likely coming from the sink. The sheets were extremely thin and not very clean. On the positive side, the B&B is...

We got the "studio" in the roof, which was has a lot off space, a kitchen but is not realy stylish/renovated, more a studients flat with rests in the fridge, which was switched off. Additional matraces lying around. In any case not in...
