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.

The room was great, everything was in good condition and clean. Despite the central location, it was quiet and easy to sleep at night, with a very comfortable bed. The staff were super helpful when I needed to seek medical help, and spent a long time helping me find the right service in Gent, and phoning hospitals/ clinics to help me find an appointment. I couldn't be happier with my stay.

Silvia Couples - 08/06/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

I had a good experience. Friendly people, beautiful view, nice room (only a little small) Nice breakfast! Well organized (see Covid-19) A little remark: very small parking space ( we paid 26 euros / night and we didn't have a good parking spot... We had to park in the corner before the bikes)

Well located

The cops were called because of a noise violation. I didn't get to sleep until about 4am. That about sums up my experience at this hotel.

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

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

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

Flyer05071126213 Business - 18/06/2019 TripAdvisor review

BEST HOTEL to stay while your in historic Gent. The management was so wonderful and courteous. The bar was so relaxing at night. Thanks to the bar tender Ceres! I would also like to mention that the young guy who helped us check out very early in the morning was really very helpful. Made our trip back home start with out the stress of travelling. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED HOTEL.
