Good hotel, great location

Goood hotel, close to the highway. Large rooms, good breakfast. The adjoining bar and restaurant was very convent and very good, I was pleased to find that open on Sunday evening.

Really friendly hotel, with easy public access to Gent city centre. Really spacious rooms with comfy beds, extremely clean too. Breakfast was really good, self service in a very relaxed atmosphere. Will definitely stay there again.

Nice clean modern hotel. Comfortable rooms. Breakfast selection good. Bus stop outside hotel takes you to Ghent centre in 10 minutes & costs 3 euros. Note there are no restaurants or shops local to hotel. Food in hotel restaurant expensive. Try eating in the bar - slightly cheaper.

Comfortable hotel

Posted Sep 9, 2017
We just wanted a hotel for a single night and this was good value. The beds had both a hard and soft pillow. We enjoyed drinks and a couple of snacks in the bar. The breakfast was good. Cost of the parking was a little steep especially considering how far out of the centre the hotel is. Overall I was very happy with our stay.

Dear Brian Thank you for staying with us during your stay in Gent. We appreciate your feedback and it's nice to read that you had a good stay. Regarding the parking: it is correct that a fee applies for use of the secured car park with barrier access. However, at the same time, a tasty breakfast is included in your rate free of charge. This saves you between 14-22 eur per person per night compared to other 3* hotels in the area. Do check the total cost of your stay and you will see that Holiday Inn Express was a very smart choice in Gent

Nothing fancy but convenient

The accommodations were good but not what I paid for. The clerk said that she told Hotels.com that the rooms did not have sofa beds two months ago.

Nice hotel, great location for Ghent, Bruges and B

Posted Aug 21, 2017
Good location, clean and tidy, fast efficient staff, nice breakfast, large room with comfy beds, perfectly adequate for all our needs. Staff were very helpful and set us up well for visiting Ghent. Car park was a little pricey, mosquitos a problem in the area but staff equipped us with plug in device. Would stay again for sure.

Nice clean hotel close to the highway

Posted Jul 15, 2017
Pros: We loved the proximity to the highway and the easy access to the old center of Ghent.
Cons: Have a pool and a restaurant on site
Location: The location is good for tourists on the go. Unfortunately there is nothing to do within walking distance or any restaurant for dinner.
We had a very good experience. The hotel was very clean and the room spacious with very comfortable beds and air conditioning. The breakfast was very good offering a variety that could satisfy any tastes. We stayed 3 nights and found it perfect for visiting Ghent and travel around the area.
