Stayed at the hotel in July 2008 with a party of 15 celebrating a 60th birthday after travelling to Belgium on the Eurostar holding a birthday party on the train. It was the first time the staff had seen a picture of a Eurostar on the top of a birthday cake.
The hotel is quite a long way from the railway station and as it was festival time in Gent taxis were not allowed into the centre although our very helpful taxi driver dropped us as near as possible to the hotel and then gave us clear directions.
The check in staff appeared to be very efficient and our check in at 1.00pm was 3 hours before the requested time but our rooms were ready and the luggage was taken up very quickly to the rooms. A normal room is very spacious with a large bathroom and very comfortable twin beds, a table, 2 ample chairs and enough drawers and wardrobe space. Warning, the espresso coffee machine is difficult to use (we only mastered it the evening before we checked out), only the bottled water is free, don`t touch the Pringles (price 3 euros), nuts or bottle of wine.
We ate the Pringles before realising the cost of 3 euros although we were not charged on check out. Evening meal is a reasonable price at 19.50 euros although the salad menu each evening could do with a bit of variation. Very close to all the attractions in Gent, boat trip good value and worth a visit to the Castle of the Counts although the city was very busy during the Gent Festival. If you want to see the buildings don`t go during the festival in July. All in all, a comfortable stay in a city centre hotel with reasonable meals. Worth trying but beware of the Pringles.
