We spent the Easter weekend in this Novotel property. We made an advanced purchase booking for 85 Euros per night including breakfast which was very good value indeed. The hotel was difficult to find in the dark by car but the helpful emailed directions from Gunther at reception enabled us to find and park at Parking P1. This car park is very near the hotel, very clean safe and secure & 5 euros cheaper per day than the hotel car park (if we could have found it). This Novotel is completely different from the standard Novotel appearance having been integrated into some old historical buildings in the very centre of Ghent. On arrival we were greeted by a very unpleasant smell. There had clearly been some kind of mishap and by the next morning it was clear that the carpet where the problem was had been replaced. The reception staff were very helpful and welcoming. The standard room on the 2nd floor was of a good standard and looked recently refurbished. The shower in particular was excellent (a ‘walk in’ shower). Breakfast was very good with very good local produce as well as warm bacon, eggs and sausages. The service was efficient. The hotel is very well situated for both shopping and sightseeing in this beautiful city. There are also many good restaurants in the vicinity. For example opposite the rear entrance of the hotel on the Hoogpoort is an excellent ‘home cooking’ restaurant. The proximity of restaurants and bars does however mean that there can be a lot of noise in the street especially on Saturday night. However, the windows were well sealed and this reduced the noise to acceptable levels. I would strongly recommend this hotel for a comfortable stay in Ghent.
