Pauline R. Business - 16/10/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

Hotel is in good state and staff is friendly. Comfy room. However I had room 214, street view and the tram is super noisy from 6am and people outside discussing until late. Not really restful

Great stay

Alexia Business - 14/10/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

Very friendly and helpful staff. The hotel and rooms were clean and considering COVID-19 precautions and safety measures were taken.

Too Cold

Benoit M. Business - 12/10/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

Problem with the Heater I think. The room was too cold. My VIP status seems not be associated to this travel.

Customer review rating 3.0/5

M.e. Business - 07/10/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

No information about the Parking situation and environmental zone at the reception. Risk of a fine up to 150€ and nobody tells you at the check-in that you have to register in an online tool of the city Gent?!

Perfect start to visit Gent

ingriddeforche 01/10/2021 TripAdvisor review

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 !

Excellent location, welcoming staff, good breakfast

Jn Business - 26/09/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

It's a standard Ibis - clean and comfortable, with a superb location - right outside the St Baafs Cathedral and handy to get anywhere. Check-in was quick and easy, and all the staff I have encountered at the hotel were friendly, helpful, and smiling. Although I was only there for 2 nights, it was a pleasurable stay indeed and I would certainly stay there again.

Well located, friendly reception

John Couples - 22/08/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

A lovely 2 days in the centre of Gent. Comfortable room. Very helpful staff. And a room to store luggage prior to catching our train.

Perfect for an overnight stay to see the beauty of Gent.

Staff at entrance was very friendly and helpful. Would have liked an extra towel at the sink. We found two thin shower towels only.

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 - 10/02/2020 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

TripAdvisor rating 3.0/5

88_George_88 Couples - 16/01/2020 TripAdvisor review

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 30/10/2019 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 - 12/10/2019 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

Belgian Hospitality

TripAdvisor rating 5.0/5

KatieHornPlayer Solo travel - 12/07/2019 TripAdvisor review

I traveled to Gent, Belgium to attend the International Horn Society's 51st gathering. The first morning I headed out to go to the music school and tripped on a cobblestone in front of Sint Baaf's Cathedral. I fell very hard and hit my head...a good friend came to my rescue and waled me back to the IBIS at St. Baaf's. The hotel staff was wonderful...they arranged for me to go to the hospital and when I arrived back at the hotel they took great care of me. They always had some ice wrapped up in a towel for me to nurse my bruise - they found me a cane - and the lovely ladies who tended the breakfast room brought me coffee and a lovely plate from what is a self serve breakfast buffet. The caring and kindness of the entire hotel staff exceeded the attentiveness one might expect from a far more expensive hotel. Never underestimate Belgian hospitality!

Dear sir, thank you very much for your kind words. Hopefully you completely recovered in the meantime. I will pass your most wonderful review to our staff. They will be delighted. take good care of yourself your caring ibis- team
