Champagne and the amazing local chocolates were waiting for us in our room on the 2nd floor of the old building, with a magnificent view of the castle. Room 22 was spacious with a large bed, bed settee, desk ,table ,chairs and large TV with a...

We arrived in Gent/Ghent and needed a place to stay. They offered us a small suite with a queen sized bed and a couch that made into a single sized bed for a reasonable rate. We enjoyed sitting in the courtyard enjoying a drink before dinner. It was great to be so close to everything at night. We were even...

I recently stayed at this hotel for business travel. The service was excellent and the room very comfortable. The staff made excellent recommendations for nearby attractions and restaurants. The chocolates delivered to my room were the best.

Hotel Gravensteen has great prices and a super central location in Gent. Easy to walk to all attractions. Beautiful lobby. Good breakfast. Comfy but run down room. The first night our roof or our tub (couldn't tell which) leaked and our floor, carpet were soaked from that point on. They gave us a free breakfast for our trouble (not a...

This was a really poor quality hotel & even though it was just three stars, it was disappointing. Apart from a new girl who checked us in, the rest of the staff were offhand at best & almost rude when I reported the problems with electrics & the safe. We had our dog with us for which they were happy...

Tired decor with carpets on the wall and a shower I could not stand up in. Disappointed with the room, although bed comfy. The reception and bar area are nicely decorated and staff friendly. I would not recommend this hotel.

A perfect base from which to explore this beautiful city. The hotel is plush, comfortable and clean. Breakfasts are ample. Service is excellent. Very pleased we chose this hotel. The only negative was sketchy wifi.

Returned yesterday from this hotel. Although it looked beautiful from the front, we were disappointed to be given a room in a separate and characterless block at the back. The entrance to the annexe was shrouded with scaffolding and dust. Inside, it reminded us of simple and basic student style halls accommodation. The breakfast was fine and the location excellent,...

Hotel Gravensteen is set in an excellent location, adjacent to the castle of the counts. You are in the heart of the historical area of Ghent when you stay here.
