We stayed just the one nght in September and recommend this hotel for a short stay. It is right opposite the station and about a 20 minute walk to the centre.We arrived early and were able to leave our bags without trouble. The owners were friendly and helpful and provided a map and a great little book about Ghent to help us explore. The tram is easy to use and cheap as well. Ghent is a beautiful, stunning city and we could have spent more time there. The room was small, but clean and comfortable and with tea & coffee making facilities and free wifi. It was reasonably quiet at night considering the proximity to the station.
We ate at the restaurant and it is excellent (I highly recommend the local Flemish dish - Stoverij). They have a great variety and knowledge of beer (particularly Belgian beer) and I tried many. On the same subject I recommend a visit to the brewery in Ghent - well worth it. The breakfast was very good but overpriced at 11 euro. Overall it was an enjoyable experience.
