Right on the canalside in the centre. Easy walking to local attractions. Great breakfast and friendly service.

The hotel is in an old building but has been extensively modernised. Great room with Spa Bath

Room Tip: Great for a city break in Belgium

This is a very good hotel in an ideal location in the old centre of Gent.

We stayed for a week in what the hotel describes as an "Exceptional Room" (25). It truly was a very good room, very large by town centre standards and beautifully appointed with very comfortable beds. Two things to be aware of if you choose this room. Firstly it is at the back of the hotel in a partly separate building, so there is no river view and it is rather dark. Secondly, the bathroom arrangement is very stylish but a bit eccentric; glass doors and a corner bath/shower that requires some athleticism to get in or out.

The staff were very helpful, often going the extra mile to assist. Breakfast was good, a cold buffet during the week with some hot alternatives at the weekend. No evening meal is available but that really doesn't matter - there are at least ten good restaurants within two minutes walk of the door. Karel de Stoute was the best, T'Klockhuis was OK/good/simple, Petit Restaurant was poor.

The real star attraction of the Harmony is its location. It is a modern, designer style hotel right at the heart of the medieval centre of the city. Straight out of the door is the quayside with all the sights within five minutes walk. It's truly stunning. Despite this convenience however it is very quiet and peaceful. Amazingly it has a garage! But you really will need a satnav to find your way there.

This hotel lies in a very beautiful street lined with old buldings and has a very central location. The Castle "Gravensteen" is just around the corner and the other sights are also nearby. Also the hotel lies in the district "Patershol", which contains a lot of good restaurants.
Staff was very friendly, good breakfast buffet. Internet access was 5 € for 2 hours.
Nice and spacious room. A pity that our bathroom was very small. The washbasin was even situated outside the bathroom. For a € 150, this could have been better.

My husband and I visited Ghent for 2 days in February and thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Harmony. Our room (#41) was absolutely perfect. We had a wonderful top floor lookout most of the sites Ghent has to offer as well as a nice canal view. The room was quite comfortable with all the amenities mentioned on their website. WiFi was available for a cost. The castle was literally right around the corner from the hotel and the belfry, St.Bavo's Church and other famous Ghent sites were within a few blocks walking distance. Breakfast was delicious with an assortment of breads, cheeses, cold meats, yogurts with toppings to choose, hard boiled eggs and cereals. I would definitely recommend this hotel for anyone traveling to Ghent.

The canal-side location of the hotel is superb ---(we stayed in room 31 which has a wonderful view of Ghent). It is centrally located and a short stroll from all the 'sights'. The room was spotless and comfortable.

Tram no 1 will get you from the Station to the Hotel and costs just 1.20 euros each.

The staff are professional yet friendly and the owner clearly takes great pride in his superb hotel.

There was an enormous selection on offer for breakfast and the service again was excellent.

The swimming pool looked wonderful and is far more impressive than the website and brochure photos suggest.There is a seating area around the pool and another open air courtyard in which to relax. We shall return in the summer months!

The rooms were spotless. The location was perfect for walking to all the sites -- the castle, cathedrals, belfry, restaurants, and shopping district. The staff spoke English and was very helpful. The breakfast was delicious. The canal boat tour was awesome and well worth the 6 Euro.

A lovely hotel for business or pleasure. Very friendly and helpful staff. The room, an "Exceptional" room, was clean and modern, though in a beautiful historical building. Internet was a reasonable price. Overall a very good experience - would definitely stay here again.
