Stayed here during a business trip to Gent. The place is near the city center which is great if you don't have a car, if you do have a car then is a different story. The streets in the city center are not made for cars and be prepared to share the small space with bikes, pedestrians and cable cars....

Checked in online so room and key read on arrival. Rooms are simple but perfectly adequate for a city break. Bed was comfortable and clearly new along with all the bedding. Good location for gent centre and next to a team stop for the rail station.

The Hotel reception is staffed 24 hours and the staff on reception were all very nice, helpful and friendly. The room we had was at the front and as with other reviews the air conditioning was noisy but once you got used to it, it dulled into the background. The room was a decent size, though the bathroom was a...

First of all, the hotel is cheap(er than others), functional, great location right in front of the tram, and clean. If this is all you are looking for and not fussy about anything else, Ibis is the place to book. Rooms are on the small side but is alright for a short stay. For me, two improvements can be made....

I should've reviewed this earlier but only remembered whist reviewing another. This hotel is a little gem in terms of its standards, location and price. I will revisit this wonderful city again and again and will always be happy to look at his hotel first. Sure it's not a Marriott, but as value for money yet still maintaining acceptable standards,...

Great place. Close to bus stop you can easily go walking to all the main tourist place. Expensive breakfast ($15) we did not buy it. Close to supermarket and great cloths stores. There are great restaurants and pubs near the hotel. Gent is definitely the best place that I have ever been in my life.

It was a typical Ibis hotel. Small but very clean room. Very good location - close to the city center and quite close to the train station. From the train station Gent Sint Pieters you can take tram 1 to Savaanstraat and it stops right in front of the hotel. The breakfast was very good and varied.
