    Great breakfast and location. Reasonably priced.

    Facilities were OK, not great. Hotel is supposedly historic, but actually looks quite modern in rooms and breakfast room.

    Very nice position, clean room, comfortable bed and quiet environment. Nice breakfast.

    A bit pricy and "gym" very small

    Excellent breakfast selection with timely replenishment of coffee and food. The rooms was a very good size for two friends sharing a twin room. The room facilities were exactly what I would expect and need. Shower was hot and had a good water pressure. Helpful and friendly reception staff.

    The en-suite had a slight smell of urine around the toilet on arrival and throughout our stay, however, the rest of the bathroom and room appeared very clean.

    Staff were very friendly. Beds comfortable. Good breakfast, with a panoramic view of the river. Close to the centre of Gent, easily walkable for everything.

    Can't think of anything.
