We spent a day in Ghent which is just a lovely little town. Very quaint and lots to see.
The hotel is right on the right and it is a unique mix of modern architecture blended in with medival walls/charm.
Check in was efficient the room was nice, clean, well laid out.
Within 5 mins you are by the castle, the main square or the old church.
The hotel has free wifi in the room which I absolutely love.
Like many other hotels in Europe they require you to activate the lift with your room key which is a bit of a pain, especially if you are staying longer than 12:00. (Get your key rekeyed on your way out in the AM).
There is also a Spar store within 3 mins walk where you can get tons of Belgium chocolate and other goodies at reasonable prices.
