This is a charming hotel within 20-30 minutes walking distance from the city centre old quarter... Our room ( 4 ) was huge and perfect for the two of us and our 2 teenage kids. The room offered great comfort, lovely shower/toilet room and very spacious feel. The owner is a top guy , he helped us find a great route to the old city rather than cab/bus I would recommend this walk through the park and next to the museums etc etc... This is not your typical hotel and you need to bear in mind that this will not give you perfection but it will give you the perfect experience if you want to plumb into some real culture of the city , ask the owner about the history of the building , great story..... all in all I enjoyed this so much, I will return for sure,,, we have stayed in chain hotels in Gent before and this is a much better experience.... oh and free secure ( and I mean proper secure ) parking was appreciated since we had over £1000 worth of bikes hanging on the back of the car .... RECOMMENDED !!!!
