We were traveling through Gent looking for accomodation and happened upon this nightmare.
Driving up to the hotel gave both of us a bad feeling. The place just looked rundown and unkept. Upon parking our car in the on-site parking lot (the only positive thing this hotel has by the way) we walked around to the entrance (if you could call it that).
The door was locked and we had to use the intercom to have them unlock the door. That was the 2nd bad sign. Not even willing to leave your entry door open to welcome your guests.
We walked down some steps to what was labelled reception desk but looked nothing like one (bad sign # 3). We were greeted by a teenager in a t-shirt and flip flops (bad sign # 4). Given all the bad vibes we asked to see the room first and thank god we did.
The ride up the old elevator was interesting and not in a good way. We were then guided through the hallways which reaked of stale smoke and shown the room. The teenager commented that it was "their largest room" as if it was
something to be proud of.
The room looked a mess. There was a double bed on one side and some foldout makeshift double bed on the other. The linen looked used and abused and the stench of stale smoke wafted throughout the room.
My wife and I gave each other one look before the teenager took off yelling at someone. We were basically just left standing there for a few minutes. We waited and waited and he never came back so we decided to get out of there.
Honestly you'd be better off sleeping in your car. Thankfully we found another hotel at a similar rate that actually is a classy hotel. Glad we decided not to spend a night in this hotel and would urge everyone else to do the same.
