        Great place to stay for a week or weekend trip. Excellent location in the city.

        Parking garage is a little tight if you have a large sedan.

      • Older travelers
        10.0

        The welcome, the location, food and service

      • Family with children

        A beautiful hotel with oudoor pool that was perfect for the day that we were there. Family room and wonderful bathroom that had all the amendities that we required.

        Driving to the hotel was a nightmare. It took one hour to get there because of the construction and pedestian only zones. We had to phone the hotel twice for directions. We could see the hotel but couldn't get to it!!!

      • Older travelers
        7.4

        The hotel is very central. The breakfast was very good..

        There are lots of road works and it was difficult to find .

      • Family with children
        8.8

        Very family friendly hotel at a prominent location. Our kids loved the pool!

      • Older travelers
        7.4

        The staff were always very friendly and helpful.

        The cost of the room and extra costs such as breakfast at 20 euros per person. It was 7 euros in other hotels. This with the parking fee of 16 euros made out stay very expensive at 198 euros a night. Prices in the mini bar were too high. 3.50 euros for a small bottle of water for example. They even wanted to charge you for putting valuables in the safe deposit box in the room. We have been staying at this hotel on holiday for many years but never again. It has become much too expensive. No good for tourists now. Now they only seem to want to attract the business travellers where the cost matters less. Why are there no drawers now in the rooms? Now they have "improved " the layout you have to put your things on the table or bedside tables..It`s all about profit now with Novatel. They will squeeze you for as much as they can get away with.

      • Family with children
        10.0

        Super location, clean rooms with comfortable beds, table tennis, nice swimming pool, good staff.

      • Older travelers
        7.4

        Very central for all facilties. Good selection of food for breakfast and evening meals.

        Difficult to find (many one way streets). Expensive parking although convenient.

      • Group of friends
        7.8

        The fact it was in a central location for the trip we had planned and fairly close to the venue we were visiting.

        We did not like the awful smell of drains which made me feel quite ill. I spoke to the duty manager and he replied, " It's the work outside, nothing I can do". Clearly unhelpful and not bothered.

      • Older travelers
        8.2

        the location was first clas for the purpose of our visit to Gent as tourists

        size of bath towels too small

      • Single
        9.6

        Very friendly staff - great location - good food and service.

      • Family with children
        6.2

        Location, Pool, Bar and Restaurant.

        Smell of smoke in corridors and our rooms, not so nice! Stains on rugs.

      • Family with children
        9.2

        The staff were kind helpful and welcoming, the pool was great, x box and on line area v useful, room v comfortable

        Not your fault, but the building work alongside is a bit off putting. Would be great to have a cheaper offer evening meal

      • Older travelers
        7.0

        Surprised to find Gent Festival in full swing with all roads to the hotel closed, particularly as I had written "Need to park car" in original booking. Would have expected hotel to advise of problem in advance so alternatives could have been planned.

      • Older travelers
        6.2

        Centrally placed.

        Rather impersonal. Room fairly basic for a "superior" room.
