Spent one night at the Hotel Jacobs as part of a 3 week road trip round Europe. It was in a good and quiet location - 10 minute walk from the town, and the best value hotel we found on the internet to book prior to leaving Englang (paid about 75 euros). Staff were friendly and helpful and our room was ready on arrival at 12pm. The room itself was the main disappointment really, it was small and a bit musty with a soft saggy bed and a tiny en-suite bathroom. The curtains were almost see through so we were awake as soon as it got light. I wonder if we were given this room for having paid a cheaper price on the internet - all three adjacent rooms to ours were empty all night, and we saw when we looked in them were massive, light and airy compared to ours!
This aside, though, there was quite a good self-serve breakfast in the morning included, of croissants, meats and cheeses, bread, cereal etc and coffee and juice. The hotel also takes credit cards. We parked just on the road outside which was free. All in all it was an OK place to stay for the night, but we didn't have a great night's sleep on the saggy bed and I would only recommend it to people on the basis that it was cheap and in a good location. It would probably be described as 'charming and authentic' in a travel guide, but I have to say we preferred the next more modern hotel we stayed at in Ghent with the crisp white sheets, air conditioning and black out curtains for 10 euros less! Philistines, I know.......
