We stayed in the "Loft" apartment whilst visiting Ghent over the festival period. Kurt was very helpful during our stay, providing advice on local transport and the like. The apartment itself is spacious and has a lovely roof terrace, although as expected being a loft space it did get a bit warm during the recent heatwave so prepare appropriately! The apartment is around 25-30 minutes walk from the historic centre (or a short tram or bus ride), close to the train station and the student area of town. It's not the prettiest of areas, but is perfectly safe (we can attest to that having stumbled back from the festival at 3am). Parking is cheap on street in local roads, which makes it ideal if you are driving compared to pricier hotels near the centre.
