I've stayed here several times now and finally getting around to a review. As a repeat visitor, I obviously recommend it.
The rooms vary a bit, with some of the bathrooms much larger and nicer than others. I particularly liked the ground floor room overlooking the river that I stayed in once. The breakfast buffet is wonderful, but be sure you book a rate that includes breakfast. It is not really any cheaper that way, but it at least disguises the exorbitant charge, and the room with breakfast is still quite affordable.
The staff is very friendly and helpful; no 5-star concierge service, but quite knowledgeable about the local area. WHich brings me to the location. Half a block from the Friday Market Place (which always has something going on) and a short walk from the richly varied Patershol restaurant district, this is a perfect base for tourist or business traveler (I have been both).
I expect that I will continue to make this my first choice in Gent.More
