Our Stay at the Best Western Hotel Chamade
Posted Aug 27, 2016 on Hotels
This is a good basic hotel within walking distance from the Sint Pieters train station. We walked from the station to the hotel (about 200 yards away). We took the train from the Brussels airport directly to Ghent. It took just under an hour and only made three stops (in Brussels) before leaving for Ghent. The hotel receptionist let us check in a little bit early. We explored the surrounding area on foot later in the day. We took the tram (which stops directly in front of the hotel) to the sights in the original medieval part of the city. (We bought a tram pass at the hotel.) The hotel staff is friendly and helpful with directions and ideas about what to do and where to eat. The breakfast offered by the hotel is good; a typical continental that is fairly common in the States (several types of breads and sweet rolls, scrambled and hard boiled eggs, bacon, yogurt, cereals, fruit, etc. The view of the city from the breakfast room was very nice. The room was adequate for three adults; good air conditioning, clean bathroom, TV with several different languages available (including the BBC), great Wi-Fi and internet.
