My boyfriend and I spent one night here, it was an amazing experience. From the luxurious atmosphere in our suite to the great cocktails and fingerfood in the cosy bar. Also a very big choice for breakfast. Very friendly staff, they really made big efforts to make our stay as comfortable as possible. Ideal location as well, right in the centre in one of the most iconic buildings of the city. Throughout the hotel you find a lot of details (paintings, postcards, decoration) referring to this rich past of the building. We loved it so I highly recommend!

This hotel has it all - an excellent location on the riverside in the historic center of Gent, a beautiful building with a well thought through design of the rooms, and a cozy common area which turns into the famous "The Cobbler" bar after 5 pm. The Post is undoubtedly my choice for the next trip to Gent.

New hotel. Used to be a post office. Room is small and compact. Overall is dark decor. Front desk folks are young, inexperienced but friendly. No work desk in the room for business travelers. TV was not working ( not set up correctly) Light control in the room is new but we have a hard time to master it ( which light vs which switch) Hotel Bar is ok. Our drinks look pretty but taste soft. Love the honest bar and the hotel location. Note that you have to drag your luggage thru the courtyard before reaching the main entrance after the taxi driver drop you off in front of the canal. We had a loft style room. I don't think this hotel is suitable for children or family travel with kids. But great for couples or singles with the light belongings.

Overall perfect experience. All the well thought details take u back in time and will make u feel comfortably at home.

Not only a great hotel experience but also an unbelievable cocktail bar with one of the best cocktailmakers. Be sure to visit while you stay here.

Room Tip: Make sure to reserve a table at the cobbler cocktail bar ahead of time
