We stayed one night and wish we had stayed longer. Located in the middle of the city center, with everything a short walk away. The hotel itself has very nice rooms and amenities, along with the wonderful cocktail bar. A memorable property and somewhere we hope to stay again.

This is a must if you want to experience the best of Ghent. The service and staff is top notch, and the property itself is marvelous in a prime location. The breakfast is wonderful and the bar is perfection. I had the pleasure of staying in “Tower Room” and that was a one of a kind experience.

By far the best hotel stay i have ever had. Front desk went above and beyond- bringing our bags to our room, excellent restaurant recommendations and overall excellent service. Property was a gorgeous historic building but entirely updated on the inside. Room was cleaned twice a day, once in the early afternoon and again for turn down service. Mini bar was well stocked and refilled daily. Bed was comfortable and everything was uber-clean. Truly an overall amazing stay.
