Stayed for 2 nights in September 2012. Excellent location, right in the centre of Gent. Typical Ibis layout, basic but very well organised and spotlessly clean throughout. Staff were very helpful and friendly. Only downside was having to park a couple of hundred metres away. A little on the expensive side but would stay again.

This hotel has a great location – provided you don't go during the Ghent Festival OR do like very loud hard rock music, from the stage just outside, invading your head well into the small hours OR take care to get a room in the back. Ironically, a card in the room claimed that providing guests with a good night's sleep was their 'top priority', but when I pointed this out to the woman in reception, she was unsympathetic. Unlike the nice man on the desk the following day, who readily changed my room and even went into the kitchen to fix me a snack (I was travelling with my choir and timing for meals was tricky). Everyone agreed that the beds (even the pillows) were very comfortable, and the buffet breakfast (not just 'continental', as one reviewer reports) was good. 'Not so keen on the very slick floors (shower, bathroom and bedroom), but the bathroom fixtures were modern and well designed. A safe in the room would be a desirable improvement. As the room was part of a package, I don't know whether or not it was good value.

This hotel is beautifully located a short walk from the heart of Ghent. Clean and comfortable, the hotel seems to be run very efficiently although, during the music festival the bar was a little crowded at night. The continental breakfast was of good quality, variety and efficiently managed. Overall a good experience and I would be happy to go back.

Room Tip: Rooms on the inside are naturally much quieter

This is a modern, clean and comfortable hotel. This is the first time that I have stayed at an Ibis hotel, but will be happy to use them again based on the standards here. I did not find the room particularly small, which was a concern after reading other reviews. The reception staff were helpful and friendly.

It is easy to reach from the train station, you need the number 1 tram and get off at the 7th stop. There is a ticket office near the tram stop outside the station.

The central location is great, in easy walking distance of major attractions. The lighting of the city centre is itself a very effective attraction.

Very good value at under £50 per night paid.

Room Tip: It does tend to get noisy from about 6.00am including trams running; if this concerns you, you could ask for a room at the rear.
