I was on a Business trip to Ghent and this place happened to be only few kms away from office and hence i choose Holiday Inn. Lady at the reception (who could not understand English clearly) asked us to wait for check in, if we wanted higher floors, little did i realize that there are only 3 floors :). Thankfully a gentlemen at the reception who could speak and understand English came to our rescue (may be from lunch break) and helped us get a room.
Its a descent place for the price you pay except if you want to order A la carte, way to expensive. Being a vegetarian breakfast options werent too many. There is an Ikea outlet right opposite the hotel and found some vegetarian option there. Otherwise no restaurants nearby.
Rooms appeared to be very traditional and old types, with red all over. Did not find the rooms and bathrooms as clean as expected
Hotel is near to the tram station so its connectivity to city center is not an issue. After taking the expo exit, i found myself driving few kms to reach the hotel and that was annoying. I believe this place is primary meant for expo visitors.
If you are a tourist there is a lot city center can offer.For short Business trip, its a good hotel.
