JohnPoesen Business - 27/11/2021 TripAdvisor review

positive : friendly staff, extensive breakfast, excellent location at the heart of Ghent, easy check-in and check-out, value for money negative: tiny rooms, airco not working optimally, limited space for clothing

Nice location but hotel does not meet expectation

Customer review rating 2.5/5

Thorsten D. Couples - 22/11/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

Location is good in city center. However, bathrooms are very small and - my main concern - there is very limited sound-proofing. Neither to the other rooms but especially not to the outside. The tramway is passing by directly in front of the hotel and at least Friday and Saturday night a lot of party people are gathering in front of the hotel.

Surprisingly quiet great location .

Anonymous Business - 05/11/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

Stayed on a business trip for 3 days. Primary reason was the central location. The rooms are really tiny and the bathroom even smaller! Breakfast was reasonable. Staff helpful.

Happy guest

Customer review rating 3.5/5

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

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.

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 !

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
