    Good location and value for money

    A brand new hotel, clean and comfy, plus not far from the historic center and the Dampoort train station. The stuff was very friendly. I had a breakfast there which for 8e offered a good value for money. Overall, I'd recommend the hotel to anyone.

    The hotel was excellent; the surrounding area rather dreary. The view from the room was not too bad

    Basic but very clean and comfortable hotel

    One of the best Ibis Budget hotels that I have stayed in, very clean and the bed was exceptionally comfortable. Easy 12-15 minute amble to the centre

    Very convenient for transportation as it resides at a 7 minute walking distance from Dampoort Station. It’s also roughly a 20 minute walk from Ghent city center so you don’t even need to take any bus or public transportation. The location was amazing and helpful. The rooms are super modern, clean and contain all amenities. The staff were very helpful and allowed us an early check-in. If you’re coming to Ghent, this is definitely the place to stay.

    Perfect for overnight stay - and watching KAA Gent

    Apart from a slow check in,hotel ‘does what it says on the tin’.5 minute walk from Dampoort Train/Bus Station and a 15 minute meander into town.Lovely town- where you might think you are in Holland.
