The hotel is modern, minimalistic, and very clean. A great addition was the mosquito meshes on the outside of the windows. The kitchen in the apartment was well equipped with a fridge, microwave, coffee machine, a table and a small safe for valuables.
For English speaking guests the TV channel choice is excellent. There were 5 BBC channels, 4 ITV, Skynews and CNN.
The breakfast was really good. There was fresh fruit salad, a good choice of muesli, a selection of rolls and bread and for those with a sweet tooth, croissants, petit pain au chocolat, pain aux raisins and even a custard cake. There was also a quality coffee machine and a good selection of teas.
It is possible to park in the street, but the hotel car park is secure, easy to find and only costs €7.50. Beware, if you are approaching the hotel from the South, as the hotel is on the opposite side of the road, and a U-turn is required through the central reservation. The first gap is a no entry. The next junction which can be used is only 50 metres up the road.
It is easy to walk to the centre of Gent and takes about 15 minutes. The hotel reception will supply you with a town plan when you arrive.
