affordable. A clean hotel. I would especially like to thank Ms. Tuba at the reception for her friendliness. I can't say the same for the gentleman in the breakfast room, but in general the employees are caring and friendly. You can play table tennis and table football in the lobby. One of the missing aspects could be bidet faucets in the toilet bowls. Daily room cleaning was good but could have been done better. We stayed safely. I recommend it. Breakfast was 8 euros on booking, 15 euros at the hotel. Parking is paid outside. 15/18 euros per day at the hotel. You can enter and exit as many times as you want. Take these into consideration when purchasing a hotel online.

The breakfast buffet has quite a good (self service) assortment and friendly staff taking care of refill / cleaning. Room was very basic/compact but for long weekend stay with good restaurant and facilities in Gent we only used for relaxing after diner and spending the night. Also in my opinion this is advantage, because lobby (with bar and snacks) was most of the times very crowded with people so the rooms were only used for sleep time.
