The hotel was quiet and situated in the center of Ghent near many restaurants and shops. It was an easy taxi ride to the work-place. The staff was quite accommodating, allowing me to check in early (well before noon) as they had a room available. The local trams stop near the hotel and can get you to the train station or other destinations.

Room was somewhat cramped and the duvet was quite hot at night.

- Really well located in Gent // you only have to walk about 50m to be right next to the cafés and restaurants at the waterside. - There is on-site parking, but I used the Sint Micheals public car park. You have to walk about 300m to the hotel, but the parking is only £4 overnight and much easier to reach from the motorway.

- Rooms are quite basic (a bit of a shock after the really nicely decorated reception). - Noise from the street is to be expected, but also quite a lot of noise travels upstairs from reception. - The ´´fitness centre´´ is a basement with a jogging machine and some loose weights. You would feel really awkward exercising there.
