“I would never go back there for sure”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 October 2011

Customer service is very poor and ineffective, they did not care about my complaint. I was asked to visit a web site of the hotel chain instead of forwarding my complaint to the hotel directly. Of course it was almost impossible to find it on the Internet.
The room was tiny, not enough space even for the luggage for two days. If you want to take a cold shower at the end of the day, just go ahead.
It was not a value for money....only if the location worths you a fortune.
I will not chose Ibis chain again, very disappointed.

Ideally situated hotel right in the heart of the centre with 10 mins of all main areas. It is a decent walk from the station but the #1 tram stops right outside the hotel.
You know what you Gent at Ibis, good clean hotels with decent staff. The room was very good and clean, can't really say any more!

Room Tip: Use regular #1 tram to get to the station.

Ideally situated in relation to the places I needed to go, this clean, modern hotel was also blessed with a car park - a great help in a crowded town centre like Gent. However, the car park is a bit difficult to locate and to enter - and, at 13 euros a day it isn't cheap. The room was OK but, like a lot of 'budget' hotels, it was small and, at first, warm and stuffy. Thankfully, it had a very effective air con system. It was nice to know that there was a 24-hour food menu available but the 'snack' consisted of just two types of sandwiches which I didn't fancy. And beware the lift - it stops very suddenly when it reaches the ground floor so bend those knees! Overall though, it was a useful stopover and if I go to Gent again I would consider using it.

I stayed here for four nights for a meeting. The town is just beautiful and is about a 4 minute walk from the centrally located hotel. There is a tram stop right in front of the hotel and the staff is very helpful. They even looked up the train times for me! The rooms are small but clean and the service is good. Excellent water pressure in the shower as well. There is free wifi in lobby that you must ask a code for. I found it annoying that you need to pay a small fortune for the wifi in the rooms. Really unecessary. The breakfast was excellent and included scrambled eggs and anything you could think of.

OK and clean hotel, staff was helpful and nice. Rooms quite comfortable but noise insulation is not very good. Stayed two night and woke up both on noise from corridor or rooms nearby. Breakfast was ok too.

Stayed here for one night. Was a bit dearer than expected, but we needed to sleep somewhere. Reception staff helpful. Room clean, adequate for our needs. Bed a little hard. Bathroom an odd shape, but good shower. No parking on-site - had to park down side street and duck down early in the morning to feed meter. Breakfast - reasonable choice of food.
Only downside - as in most European Hotels - no coffee making facilities or fridge.

Very poor insulation - noisy both internally and externally. Wooden floors not a good idea for hotel bedrooms! Excessive noise from neighbouring rooms and rooms above made sleeping difficult. Not sure what they have done to the plumbing system, but sound of water rushing down pipes after people in rooms above had flushed the toilet was unbelievable.
No kettle in room for coffee/tea.
On the positive side, staff were very helpful and friendly. Location a short walk from town centre.
