we travelled from london by coach and arrived Ghent at early morning 5:20am. The bus stopped at Damport bus station and we take the first bus (5:40am) to St peter station. After that, we had breakfast at the st peter station because the hotel is open at 7am. The transport system to the hotel is convenience but aware that the last tram back to the hotel is at 11:16pm and the last tram (tram no:4) does not go to the hotel. Luckily the taxi is not expensive. We paid fifteen euro from central to hotel. Gerald is great, he gave us the transport information and we save lot of time at Damport Bus station. He is friendly and reply our email very quick. This is my first time stay in family hotel and me and my friends like the hotel, we surprised the facilities in this family hotel. You could enjoy the gym, sauna, jacuzzi and pool. We will definitely stay Hotel Orion again. Is a good choice for a traveller who bored about the hotel chain. The only weakness is it takes around 20 minutes from hotel to the city central. However, is convenience for the traveller to the st. peter railway station (only 5 minutes tram). We take train from St. Peter Station to Brugge (another beautiful city). It takes 25 minutes fast train from Ghent to Brugge, The return train ticket is about twelve euro.
