We recently spent a few nights in Ghent and did not regret our choice of apartments. This place had everything you would need for a comfortable stay and a helpful host besides. You do need to be able to climb a steep (but short) set of stairs to get to the bedroom and that might limit access for some. Although there is a sleeping area on the second level, it is small and does not offer any privacy. The kitchen is well equipped and we used it each day for breakfasts and dinners. Ghent has a lot to offer: a beautiful medieval center, museums, great restaurants, easy access to Brugge, Brussels, and WWI sites around Ypres. Communication with Lydia was excellent. Every inquiry was answered promptly and, because we arrived the day of a national holiday with lots of stores closed, Lydia even offered to shop for staples for us and bring them by the apartment. We would not hesitate to stay again.
When my husband and I travel we always look for unquie accomodation to help make our holiday more memorable. Why stay in a hotel when you have the choice of staying in a gem like this beautiful 17 th century townhouse. The location is perfect, easy walking distance to everything in Ghent. And with the Gravensteen castle just finger tips away from the front door, WOW! I loved looking out of the third floor bedroom window at night and gazing at the castle lite up in all her glory. The townhouse it's self is well appointed with everything you need to enjoy your stay. The bed is very comfortable however a word of caution, the bedroom is reached via very steep stairs, almost ladder like, so if you have physical difficulties this unfortunately may not be the townhouse for you. The bathroom is modern with plenty of hot water. The lounge room is sunny and very comfortable with large windows, once again looking out onto the castle. The kitchen is modern with everything you need for an easy stay.
Lydia, the host, is very accomodating and replies to all emails promptly.
If you choose to make this townhouse your home while you adventure in Ghent you most defiantly won't be disappointed .
P.s if you looking for a cafe with great food and great service try the T'Postje on the Kornmarkt
We enjoyed our stay at the apartment. It is a great location that is close to everything and the view overlooking the castle is a wonderful bonus. It is a good set-up for a couple and everything that you need is provided. I would not though recommend this apartment for people with any physical issues as the stairs going to the loft bedroom are basically a ladder going. Fun and charming with a great location.
Mit der Auswahl unserer Unterkunft haben wir den absoluten Volltreffer gelandet. Das Haus liegt in direkter Stadtnähe mit Blick auf die Burg Gravensteen. Das Haus selbst ist wunderbar restauriert und die 3 Etagen geschmackvoll eingerichtet. Wir wollten gar nicht ausziehen. Es besitzt eine geräumige Küche zur Selbstverpflegung. Eine Vielzahl an toller Restaurants und Kneipen ist aber fußläufig zu erreichen, so dass wir auf Selbstverpflegung komplett verzichtet haben.
Der Kontakt zum Inhaber ist freundlich und absolut problemlos. Neben englisch, kann man sich auch perfekt in deutsch mit Ihm unterhalten.
Gent selbst zählt zu den vielleicht schönsten Städten Europas. Das Flair dieser jungen alten Stadt ist
einmalig. Wir werden definitiv bald wieder nach Gent kommen. Und buchen werden wir wieder diese Unterkunft.
Een middeleeuws pand, netjes gerenoveerd. Met een eetkeuken op de begane grond, woonkamer op de eerste etage en ruime slaapkamer onder de oude balken. De inrichting is een sfeervolle mix van design en antiek. De ligging is perfect in het Centrum. Uitermate geschikt voor een gezellig of romantisch weekend in Gent voor 2 personen. Meer slaapruimte is mogelijk, maar betekent slapen in de woonkamer.
Wij zijn van plan terug te keren naar Gent en dan ook weer hier te verblijven.

We really enjoyed our stay in this lovely house very much. Located very conveniantly in the old town of Ghent, this house offers everything we had wished for. The interior combines traditonal furniture with the conveniance of modern appliances and although being very close to all the bars and restaurant, inside it was quiet and peaceful. Ghent is a lovely old town - definitely worth a visit. Thank you, Lydia and Hendrik, you made it very easy for us to have a very relaxing and enjoyable weekend.
