Holiday Inn Express Gent
Ranked #18 of 39 Hotels in Ghent
Reviewed 20 September 2010

The hotel is located just off the highway - exit 9 from the A14 and the first right - but is far from the touristy places (though we were told at the reception that its just a 7 min drive). The room was quite spacious for our family of 4. Breakfast was simple but nice with very friendly staff. We stayed a couple of nights and it was a nice stay.

This hotel is good value and offers a clean ,well equipped place to stay. The staff were very helpful especially Laurens who was friendly and efficient.
The hotel is let down by it's location and outward appearance but as a stopover is ideal.
Breakfast was of good quality and plentiful, staff ensure food is replenished and the self service system is well organised.
There is a fee for parking which is unusual for an out of town hotel and seems unnecesary.

Large room for up to four people with a decent enough sofa bed. Good shower. Breakfast OK but have had better in Mercure and Novotel. Annoyed to have to pay 18 euros on departure: 10 for local taxes, which I thought were included, and 8 for parking. This is an out-of town site for heaven's sake so this is a rip off, especially as their website does not mention a charge. Booking.com does mention it. Free wifi OK if slow. With fixed internet rate price is reasonable. The location is right beside the motorway but double glazing cuts down the noise. However there was a compressor drone from a nearby factory/office all night long-a minor itrritation. Not far from the centre by car but beware of getting lost-in the dark and lashing rain it can be difficult to find the hotel again.

Standard HIE in most respects. Helpful staff, clean and tidy. Long rather depressing corridor (maybe the olive colour?) leads to larger than average rooms. Car parking is an additional 8 or 9 euros per night, which seems a little cheeky as this is hardly the centre of town. Location is good for getting onto the motorway but is a long way from the historic centre of Gent. There is a bus that runs every half hour or so from a bus stop outside the hotel, but the last bus back requires leaving the centre by about 10:30. Free wifi worked well.

Lovely place, all you would expect from a holiday inn. Restaurant voucher of a free drink on check in is fantastic, we had a buffet meal that night which although I thought was ver nice, my girlfried didn;t like th small amount of choice.

Quiet night, easy and pleasent breakfast, quick check out. On the motorway within a minute!

Stopped here on the way from UK to south of Brussels.
Claims to be the smartest accommodation choice in Gent so the rest of Gent can't be up to much! It is typical Holiday Inn Express - you get what you pay for - as it says on the website - fresh (a bit tired round the edges), clean (spotless in the rooms), uncomplicated (agree) hotel choice offering comfort (as comfortable as a cardboard shoebox style can be), convenience (right next to motorways) and good value (depends when you book).
Breakfast is help yourself continental and just fine. Internet is free for an hour and a bit slow.
If you're just passing through on the way somewhere else it really is a great place to stay.
