I have stayed at this hotel for several times before, but this time when I booked, it said that there is another room style which is 30 euro more, so I took it, but it showed that there is only one room type at this hotel. Then the pillow is too high to my taste, and they have only one standard for pillows, so the reception helped me to arrange some towels to act as my new pillow, which was fine. The bed is just besides the room door, so you hear easily what is going on in the corridors. The breakfast is absolutely not worthy 14 Euro, simple selection, not recommended.

Room Tip: There is only one room standard!

Dear guest,

Thank you for your comments on your stay.

Our pillows are quiet recent and indeed rather high, we'll look into this and try to provide some thinner pillows.

Thank you again for sharing your experience, and we hope your next visit will be as pleasant as the previous one.

We recently stayed at this hotel for a long weekend. We love Gent and this hotel. The staff are warm, friendly, polite and very helpful. We wanted to go to the football match and the receptionist went out of her way to find out the best possible route for us to take. Nothing is too much trouble.
The bar area has been revamped and is comfortable. A large bowl of snacks accompanied our top qualiry beers.
We have used this hotel for several trips now and I will still return.
Easy to get to from the train station, tram number 1 stops right outside and is 1.30 euros or you can buy a multi trip card 10 trips for 10 euros that a group can share.
Overall a top budget hotel experience.

This is a basic Ibis hotel - nothing flashy, a bit identikit, but overall perfectly serviceable. We had a double room with ensuite shower - it was basic and clean but adequate for our needs. We stayed one night and I would happily have stayed a few more.

We didn't try the meals but the menu looked fairly standard.

The location of this hotel is what really sells it. It's a walkable distance from the train station. We walked a fair amount of it along the canal, which was very nice. The hotel is also very central - again a short walk into the centre of Gent. It's close to many restaurants, bars and attractions.

Our room was on the 3rd or 4th floor and was perfectly quiet. I think I could smell smoking, so I don't know if I was in a smoking floor, but it might be worth checking when you book if you really hate it.

The location of this hotel is right beside a tram stop which makes it good for those arriving by train. Typical IBIS - clean compact rooms. Staff were helpful. Minimal use of hotel bar - which was pleasant & appeared to be getting good custom from residents - and didnt take breakfast there as it was expensive. Overall no reason to complain.
