I stay in Novotel hotels regularly as a business traveller and Accor member; and this one can definitely marked up as at the budget end of the brand. Great central location, but in Gent this means a nightmare if travelling in by car - plan your route carefully, and expect the unexpected (like having to go down the wrong way in a one-way or through a pedestrian precinct to get to where you need to be). The room we had was pretty tired, and the hotel can be described as 'functional'. The bar was good for a nightcap, but, and this is a big but when it comes to most Accor hotels, I provided my credit card when I checked in, but when I asked to put our drinks on my room I was told that I would have to go reception to activate a credit card - why do Accor hotels do this? I don't just give my credit card at check in to sow off that I have one!! Oh, and the hotel has an outdoor pool... whilst we were there it was clear blue skies and 26 degrees C and the pool was cordoned off, so therefore pointless.
