I stayed in room 126 of the Ibis Gent Centrum Opera Hotel for 1 night in early December 2008 on a city break with a friend. We arrived in Gent by train at Gent-Sint-Pieters railway station around midday. The hotel is only a 15-20 minute walk from the railway station, or a short tram ride on tram route 1. On arrival at the hotel reception we were able to check-in straight away.
The twin room (126) and bathroom were modern in appearance, smart and very clean. The room had a television but sadly there were no tea/coffee making facilities.
The hotel location is excellent; the historic city and the main tourists’ sites are within easy walking distance of the hotel. For sites further a field there is a tram stop directly outside the hotel served by tram route 1, which provides easy connection with all parts of the city.
Breakfast was served on the ground floor of the hotel and there was an ample choice of continental breakfast items to eat such as pastries, meats, yoghurts, bread, juice and cereals, plus cooked items such as sausages and scrambled egg. There was also a good selection of drinks including coffee, fruit juices and a variety of flavoured teas.
Overall, a great value hotel, which is ideally located to explore the city. I would definitely stay at this hotel again if I visit Gent again and as such, have no problems in highly recommending it.
