Well located

Customer review rating 4.0/5

The location next to the cathedral, in the heart of the old city of Ghent is great. The rooms are somewhat small, which is not surprising given the location, but they are clean and well cared for.

Great central venue

Customer review rating 4.5/5

David Y. Friends - Confirmed reviews ALL

We had a very enjoyable and comfortable stay over 3 nights. The staff were very helpful both during making our booking and whilst we were staying. What made our stay particularly memorable was that we had made the original booking in November 2019 for April 2021 and it was not until May 2022 that we were able to take it up. If you are thinking of visiting Ghent (Gent) by car don't forget that you will need permission to take your car into the city centre within 24 hours of arriving and the hotel has to issue a permit to drive in pedestrian only roads to get to the hotel. Also the hotel has an underground car park (chargeable) but it is very tight on space!

Excellent location.

A 3-night midweek stay. Very close to all the sights. Room comfortable and clean, if a little spartan. Good breakfast.

very tiny rooms with no amenities, location is good

Dear Peter, Thank you for taking the time to write a review about your stay in our hotel, we regret that the room was not fully to your satisfaction. The size of the standard rooms we can not change but we do have some rooms at the end of the corridor that are a big larger, as well as the superior rooms on the first floor. Please do not hesitate to give your preference for these rooms by your next reservation so we can preserve one for you. Could you please advise us what amenities you missed so we can serve our guests better in the future? For your information, this month we started to provide Kleenex, a small bottle of water, shoeshine, showercap, extra pillow and towels in the room. We hope to have the opportunity to welcome you again in the near future. Sincerely, Esther van der Helm Assistant Manager

Helpful staff, well located

Very helpful staff. Excellent location -- except that the hotel should provide instructions for drivers trying to reach the hotel. Nice, quiet room. But the bathroom should have been better designed. It could and should be larger. Bottled water from the bar is overpriced.

Dear Gerard, Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback, it is always a pleasure to read you appreciate the service of our team and the unique location! We understand it is not easy to reach the hotel by car, the moment you make a reservation for our parking the reception should have send you directions how to get here.Apparently you didn't receive this for which we sincerely apoloqize. We are looking forward to have the opportunity to welcome you again soon in one of our hotels. Sincerely, Esther van der Helm Assistant Manager

Very well located.

Small bedrooms but perfectly formed. Clean and everything you need. Towels are a bit small and thin though. Plentiful breakfast with plenty of choice and the location is perfect for exploring Ghent. Finding your way around Ghent with a car was an absolute nightmare even when we found a small car park a 10 minute walk from the Ibis. Would recommend the hotel for a short break but may be a bit cramped for any longer.

Always felt welcome

Very good location, clean room, staff are friendly from the reception to the breakfast area. Shower gel bottle was empty though :) but no big deal. Breakfast was good.

Dear Chalee, Thank you for the great review of our hotel! Nice to hear you felt welcome and that the room was clean. Sorry for the empty showergel, we will ask our housekeeping team to pay extra attention to this. Looking forward to welcome you again soon. Sincerely, Esther van der Helm Assistant Manager

Ibis hotel St-Baafs is the perfect place, in the middle of town to enjoy the historic city of Gent. Everything is in walking distance. The service at the hotel was perfect, very friendly with a very good bed !

Yves240967 TripAdvisor review

Perfect location, warm welcome, amazing staff who did their utmost best to make our stay worth remembering in these special times. Rooms are rather small but very tidy with all the comfort you need. Breakfast was not in buffet style but you get to chose as much as you want. At night you can order an Uber or TakeAway meal and eat it in the loungebar of the hotel.

Beste Yves, We zijn zeer tevreden te lezen dat u onze keuze voor het ontbijt goed vond. Het is ook voor ons in deze tijden niet altijd simpel om het beste voor de gasten aan te bieden en dus proberen we onder de omstandigheden toch nog het beste te voorzien. We hopen u in de toekomst zeker nogmaals te mogen verwelkomen!

Pleasant stay

Kerstin D Business - TripAdvisor review

Small spaced bathroom, especially the placement of the toilet is not good, especially not for a tall person. The colours in the room and bathroom were very boring/dull, need to be refreshed. No mat in the bathroom available.

Very good location, not very friendly staff at the bar

Made a reservation for 2 persons through the company website. When we arrived they told us that they had upgraded our rooms, but we realized that in the room the amenities (coffee, towels, etc) were only for one person. Also, when we asked for a wine opener from the hotel staff in the bar, they were very rude and treated us as criminals that would steal it. They even suggested that we went to a bar across the street to ask for one.

Good location!

Roamy307091 TripAdvisor review

The hotel is located in a great place. The staff is nice and the food in the bar is nice and reasonably priced. I have stayed in this place before and had no complaints; however now we found that the beds were replaced and are AWFUL!! The bed only consist of a bed frame and a topper... I you have a back problem you will have a horrible night sleep. I would suggest to replace the beds for better ones!

Back in Ghent

Tim P Solo travel - TripAdvisor review

This hotel never disappoints on value. Likely my 11th stay. Consistent, clean, great central location , friendly staff & breakfast fine. Around 15 min walk/5 Taxi up from Station with frequent service out of Brussels Midi Will use again without hesitation.

Dear Tim, thank you very much for this love review! We look forward to welcoming you again in our hotel :-) Kind regards, Shannah Defour Front Office Manager
