Reviewed 24 March 2014

The hotel was conveniently placed a ten minute walk away from Ghent Dampoor station and equally only a ten minute walk in to the lovely centre of Ghent . The lady on reception was extremely helpful and spoke fluent English . Nothing was a problem you just have to ask , she even rang the rail stations to help us plan our trips out . The food was another 10 out of 10 along with the rooms also 10 out of 10 . Comfortable , modern and very clean . I would recommend this excellent hotel to all .

There is a lot of hidden charges, stayed for four weeks and ended up paying 600 more with all hidden charges, read carefully small script and terms of agriement.
Very poor cleaning, fast internet , which they will charge you for, disconnects from time to time and as not as fast as you would expect. Parking at the hotel is very tight, takes some time and danger of dameging the car to get it in place without scratches. lunch packs are not replacing brekfast, they will still charge you for brekfast even if you not take it, but if you ask for lunch pack instead of brekfast they will charge you for both anyway.
NT worth the money to stay at this hotel.

Room Tip: Rooms facing rear are ok, but in general there are better offers for less money around there.

Our second stay at the Castelnou. The first one was 30 years ago but standards have been maintained & in some respects improved (warmer, less 'corporate' décor and furniture, for example). A spacious, comfortable & attractive apartment was the ideal base to visit an attractive and underrated town. Reception staff were extremely cordial & helpful. Only disappointment was the performance of an unsympathetic & lazy waiter at dinner on the final night. We would certainly stay here again. Highly recommended for the independent traveller.

Room Tip: Top floor rooms have a good view over the town.

We were a family group of five with 3 standard rooms on an overnight stop to Amsterdam.
We did not know Ghent and were delighted to discover this beautiful town within comfortable walking distance of this hotel. We were happy to have good and secure parking, spotless accommodation, comfortable beds and an outstanding service from all the staff.
I left my I pod behind by mistake and had messages from the hotel immediately and the offer to return it to the UK by post: how exceptional is that?
We would all return to visit Ghent in more depth on a future occasion and would certainly not choose any other destination to stay than this Hotel. Thank you all for your legendary service!

Room Tip: we chose a standard room which was fine for overnight, more than adequate.For longer stays, the larg...

Lovely accommodation! Comfortable beds, lovely bedding and very clean - bliss. We visited as a family and had our own apartment very pleasantly appointed with everything you needed for a very enjoyable visit to Ghent. The staff, especially the lady on reception, we're friendly and helpful. Secure parking is available and the apartments are within a short walking distance to the town.

Very good sleep quality in this hotel, stylish modern decor. The staff were very helpful and gave us advice about local transport. Breakfast was ok, nothing wonderful. The bar was good and plenty of space to sit in the lobby. The hotel is a short bus ride from the centre and a pleasant walk if the weather is good. We did not use the kitchen facilities but I can see that this is a great idea.

Stayed for three nights on our way back from visiting friends in Germany. Hotel completely lived up to all expectations from previous Tripadvisor reviews. Loved the whole apartment / hotel concept! Good location, great food within the hotel; both at dinner and breakfast, friendly, helpful staff throughout (Helena on reception especially was instrumental in providing an excellent parking space in the underground garage), clean, comfortable. Just excellent! Will definitely be back!

Room Tip: We were in a second floor room (205), immediately diagonally opposite the lift, and overlooking the...
