'Bed in Gent' is ideally located for travellers who wish to be slightly outside the hustle and bustle of the main town. It is close to the Gent-Dampoort station, located in a quiet residential area which is a short and pretty walk to the historic part of town.
Tom was a wonderful host and took time to show us maps of the town and point out bars, cafes, restaurants and museums (the STAM museum is worth a visit).
I stayed in the first floor room, decorated with neat retro furniture, records, books, finished with fresh linen and lots of light from the large windows. I slept with the widows open as we were going through a mini-heatwave that week, and did not hear a sound from the street all night, it was very peaceful. I felt very comfortable in the room, and enjoyed spending time at the B&B - it felt like much more that just a base for the night.
Breakfast topped it off, it was fantastic - fresh bread from the bakery, homemade jams, pastries, unusual and delicious organic cheeses and a boiled egg, perfect.
I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at 'Bed in Gent' - thank you Tom for being such a great host. I hope to visit again soon.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- A roomy guest-house, the bright south-oriented bathrooms and the shared dining room with a dash of modern retro - really, do not skip breakfast in that dining room.Also a friendly neighborhood, very much alive (without the rush). A fashionable quarter, if you like, with the marina nearby. It takes a five-minute walk to the railway station. Only ten minutes to my favorite coffee shop or the library. ... more less
