We stayed in Gent for 1 night in Hotel Verhaegen. The hotel is wasted on a one night stay because if you want to explore Gent (also beautiful) you don't get enough time to appreciate the accommodation! The owners have really spent a lot of time furnishing and restoring this building. There is a champagne bar a street away but we thought it was lacking in atmosphere - stay in your room and drink the bubbles in the minibar!
Minor gripe, although breakfast was nice I do think that at the room price you shouldn't have to pay 18 extra euro for an egg and some bread (this complaint is true for most other hotels of course!).
We hope to go back one day!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- From gilt mirrors to Roberts radios, everything fits within this grandly classical 1770s home. The owners are gently-spoken interior designers who have created a sumptuous blend of historical renovation and well-placed modernism along with certain 60s-retro touches to avoid any sense that you are in a dead museum. The truly dazzling salon and 18th century dining room include original wall-paintings of Flemish-fantasy harbour scenes. Out the back, a neatly manicured parterre garden and fountain-pond leads to a photogenic 17th-century carriage house. ... more less
