I enjoyed my last visit very much. Reception guys were very frindly and I felt as home. Every issue I had was succesfully solved. Gent is a amazing place to visit and enjoy it. You'll get wifi without any problem and you´ll surf internet very fast.

This is the second time we staying at this hotel. They never disappoint. The breakfast is superb. The location is very central to the old town, overlooking the three cathedrals. We will definitely recommend this hotel if you in Gent.
