Location fantastic. Hotel excellent considering is 2 star. Clean, large rooms, very helpful reception staff. Without us asking for it they gave us a larger room to accommodate our travel cot. Only downside was lack of parking at hotel - they recommended an underground one less than 5 mins walk away, approx 13 euro for 24hrs.
Would definitely stay again if in Gent.

Dear,

I would like to thank you for taking the time to give your feedback and remarks to us by means of this internet media. As manager I'm always glad and happy to see the confirmation of one of our main objectives a good value with an excellent quality. Regarding the location I only can emphasis on our top location near the Town Hall, Belfort Tower and St Baafs Cathedral...at 5 minutes walk of the Gravensteen Castle.
Hopefully we might welcome you in the near future again in the lovely city of Ghent.
Best regards

Typical Ibis – an efficient check-in, room clean with a decent shower (but why do these hotels not have decent size bath sheets?). This hotel is in a perfect location overlooking Kathedral Square, with the added bonus of an underground car park – although it was quite tight even with a Golf, there are limited spaces and its €15 a night. We paid extra for breakfast which was good value. Turning right out of the hotel, there are several Italian and Greek restaurants as well as a few bars. We used it as a stopover on our way to Utrecht in the Netherlands (another lovely city to explore) and would certainly use it again.

Room Tip: Asks for a room overlooking the square.

Dear,

As we are one of the largest networks in the world with over 900 hotels it very rewarding to see that we respond to the major object of our Ibis brand "best price on top location with good value for money". Your feedback makes it for my staff even more rewarding as they are working every day hard to meet up with these expectations. Many thanks for this. As we are situated in the medieval historical hart of the city we have truly a top location with numerous restaurants and bars in the near vicinity. Breakfast buffet with dining room facing the cathedral and the St Baafs square is indeed a nice start of the day.
Many thanks for this feedback.
Best regards

This hotel is located next to the Cathedral on the main plaza of Ghent and therefore within walking distance of everything. The rooms were excellent and very comfortable. The staff was amazing and so very kind and helpful. When in Ghent this is the place to stay!!

Room Tip: Ask for corner room facing plaza and cathedral

Dear,

It's true that we have a wonderful location, straight into the medieval and historical hart of the city of Ghent. That we respond to all international criteria of the Ibis Brand makes it rewarding to the daily effort that my staff is making.
Nevertheless as manager it gives me a great deal of pleasure and pride to read that the staff was amazing and very helpful. It gives us all the necessary energy to keep up the good work.

Best regards

I went to Gent in February this year for a two-day meeting and was accommodated at the Ibis Gent Centrum Kathedraal Hotel. The hotel is set across St. Baafs and is overlooking Belfort. It is set in the central area and is surrounded by many cafes and an endless choice of restaurants and landmarks.

I stayed at a large room, which was very comfortable. It came perfectly clean and had a bathroom with a shower.

The breakfast was very tasty and I had a great choice of different things to eat, actually something for every taste. The people working in the hotel were very helpful and friendly, which I appreciated especially when I was late and they found me a taxi that came immediately.

The hotel is perfect for business travelers and has everything that is necessary to make you feel comfortable. Thanks to this and the great location, I will recommend that hotel to the people I know who will travel to Gent.

You could NOT get a better location.This hotel is literally metres away from the cathedral in the old city. That said: comfortable rooms, not large but a grade above dirt-cheap, private bathrooms, a pretty nice bar & restaurant - we had a really good two-course meal for two, with drinks, for €45 - and the staff are friendly and helpful. We had no complaints at all.

Very close to some fantastic bars and restaurants.

Parking is expensive - €15 a night (but this would be common to every hotel in this location). Internet access is €10 per 24 hours.

Dear,

As manager of the Ibis Hotel Gent Kathedraal it's fantastic to read your comments. I will share your comments and feedback with my staff. Our service level and the quality that we try to provide every day makes it due to comments like this more than worthwhile. It's true that we are situated at a top location. The Ibis slogan worldwide is the best room at the best price on a top location. I would say for Gent mission accomplished. Our bar and restaurant menu has been changed and has been improved with some extra dishes as well for vegetarians, for a quick snack or a pleasant meal.

Many thanks for your review and hopefully we will be able to welcome you in Gent in the future.

Best regards
