We were very surprised of reading these negative reviews; when we arrived we had such a lovely welcome in hotel verhaegen. It was personal en we had immediately a nice feeling of being at home “ away from home”. At the same time we were overwhelmed of the beauty of this building, pure 18th century and with the most beautiful objects decorated. Even now being at home I have the feeling I still haven’t seen everything!
Our bedroom was like a dream, we had a large room and bathroom with bad. We had a real four-poster bed and we were looking over of a typical French garden when we had our late afternoon aperitif of rosé-champagne of the minibar. One of the owners brought us an ice bucket and two glass, the moment was complete and we enjoyed the moments on our luxury room.
Hotel Verhaegen was situated in the centre of Ghent, although we had no disturbance of noisy traffic and it was possible for us to do everything by feet. We think Ghent is a really lovely city with a character, we can surely recommend both!
- 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
