Convenient, quiet location (near St Bavo's cathedral, famous for the "Lamb of God" Van Eyck altarpiece). The rooms are all of a reasonable size (and all have en suite facilities despite some bizarre reviews elsewhere on this site); however they differ in style of decoration and some are bigger than others; use the information on the Alphabed web site to decide which one suits you.
The breakfast goes beyond the norm for a continental breakfast: as expected, there were bread, jam, cheese, coffee and fruit juice (of unusually high quality and freshness); what was not expected were delicious tomato slices with mozarella, or a freshly prepared fruit salad.
Do check the location on Google Maps or otherwise: apparently some people have had trouble finding it. Marc is very friendly and pleasantly laid back about booking arrangements; he did not ask for a deposit or provide a booking confirmation. We recommend you bring his phone number with you and call him a little while before you expect to arrive; he may want to give you the entry keycode so that you can let yourselves in.
While in Ghent, do not miss the MIAT museum (on the northern edge of the historic centre), it has superbly presented displays with excellent views of the city and a cafe that offers astonishingly good cheap food (soup, filled rolls and the like.)More
