Van der Valk Hotel Drongen
Ranked #32 of 39 Hotels in Ghent
Reviewed 11 November 2013

3 of us stayed over, 3 single rooms for 1 night
There was no hot water, there was no one in reception to complain to.
Is that because they are far away from Dutch HQ ?
Overall a terrible experience, will not be using Van der Valk again

Clean and stylish hotel. Staff were excellent and gave a service above 3 star. Good positioning as only 300 yards from motorway. Food was very good. Room was very clean and modern. However when entering hotel the first thing that hit you was the smell from the toilets and you then had to go to restaurant to book in as reception desk was there and not in foyer! Breakfast was also overpriced but of good quality.

Room Tip: Go for a cheap room as there seems to be little difference in what you get.

This stylish and very comfortable hotel is conveniently located near an E40 off-ramp with quick and easy access to downtown Ghent, the Flanders expo center, and all major interchanges. The rooms are spacious and nicely appointed, with very large, sound insulated windows, something I appreciate living in a quiet beach town. A nice large bar, restaurant and rooftop patio can accommodate very large groups. The staff is friendly and helpful. There's plenty of walking and hiking opportunity just around the hotel alone as it is nestled in the bucolic Leie region, with beautiful Sint Martens Latem, Deurle, and the castle of Ooidonk minutes away. Highly recommended!
