The hotel was OK, but certainly not 4 star.
We had a courtyard room which was large and spacious but well used. The bed was large and very comfortable. Dressing gown and slippers were provided which was a nice touch.
Window opener was broken, so we couldn't shut the window.
The safe was inside the wardrobe, but not fixed, so you could lift it out! No security at all for your valuables.
Breakfast was good except that the 'hot' buffet (bacon eggs and sausage), was mostly cold, being in an old fashioned bain marie. The breakfast room was small and cramped and on one day there were not enough seats, so guests had to queue and wait for a table. Service was under par, with only 2 staff to clear tables and serve tea and coffee. On our last day we did not see a server until we had finished breakfast.
Staff were generally pleasant and helpful.
During our stay there were renovations going on in courtyard rooms which, meant that hammering and banging started around 8am. There was no mention of this when we checked in.
Overall it was reasonable value for money considering that Ghent is not a cheap city.
