Best Western Residence Cour Saint Georges
Ranked #32 of 37 Hotels in Ghent
Reviewed 18 May 2012

We didn't book this hotel in advance. It was a spur of the moment thing. It turned out to be a good choice. The hotel is in a really good location for all attractions, the main restaurant area and canal are maybe 5 mins walk.
The staff are very friendly, when we arrived the lady on reception (I think her name is Zoo?) was particularly helpful in giving us info on the city etc.
the main downside of the hotel was that as it has wooden floors you can hear them creaking from the floor above. Decor is a bit dated but rooms were clean and tidy.

Good, clean hotel, friendly staff, hearty breakfast, with private garage parking (advance notice needed). Located in the heart of the city, close to all attractions and restaurants.

I stayed here and enjoyed it for the following reasons. The room I got was actually nice. The floors were creaking but it was bearable. It was clean, nice and with a clean bathroom. There was a big selection of breakfast and it was tasty. The tables are close to each other but again it was fine and not an issue.
The location is more than perfect to go around the beautiful sights of Ghent. It is right in the heart of it all! The staff were friendly and the price was right.

We recently stayed at the Best Western Hotel Cour St Georges for two nights.
The hotel was in an excellent spot right next to the Old Town Hall and very close to all the main sights of historical Ghent.
Our room rate included breakfast - the breakfast was very good with cereals, bread, croissants as well as bacon & scrambled eggs plus the usual choice of teas, coffee & fruit juice.
Staff were friendly & helpful.
There was a garage area opposite the hotel with parking charged at €15 per night.
I would recommend this hotel to anyone wanting to visit the historical areas of Ghent.

As many reviewers have pointed out, this is a cramped, hot, run-down hole which really does a disservice to the name Best Western. Although perhaps that is being a little generous. The location doesn't really make up for its general tawdriness. Needs total renovation, but the space is too small to do much with it.

The hotel was scruffy, the rooms were poor, not as advertised on the website. The dining room, (breakfast only/0 had crumbling wallpaper right next to the tables we had to eat at. the lift was old and dangerous. a budget bed and breakfast place. the only good thing was the location very central for exploring Gent but certainly not a 3 star hotel.

Room Tip: we did not see any good rooms we booked superior rooms and they were very poor.

Avoid at any cost rooms facing street because of noise! Our first night we only got 3-4 hours sleep. The windows are thin and we heard conversations and traffic into the wee hours. The first room, 55, also had a dangerous half step between bathroom and bed. We were given two dysfunctional codes for using the internet before we finally got one that worked, wasting time we would have preferred using for sightseeing. The second night we got a room towards the back (14) and were much happier, although that meant not having a bathtub. The hotel had few guests when we were there, but the asst manager insisted that no room would be available until 3PM the first day; didn't understand why that had to be "policy". The young man at the desk the next day was much more helpful, and for that we were most grateful. The walls of the breakfast room are in dire need of restoration (many large holes). Overall, a very disappointing hotel stay in a wonderful city.
