excellent location

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay in Ghent very much. This apartment is in a great location and is well-appointed with everything you need. The hosts were very responsive throughout our stay. Our only precaution is that the bedroom is on the top floor, there is no bathroom up there and you have to climb ladder-like stairs to get there. This could be an issue for some.

Nice place, great town ...

  • 5 of 5

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.

Unforgettable Ghent

  • 5 of 5

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

Great location in the city

  • 4 of 5

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.

Owner's Response: We are so happy that you had a good time in our medieval little house! The location and view IS STUNNING and everything is so close in the center of Ghent. We do agree that it is very difficult if not impossible for disabled people to get to the highest floor..

Ein perfekter Wochendtripp nach Gent

  • 5 of 5

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.

Owner's Response: If my guest is happy, I am happy! Wherever you're from, you'll enjoy our house from the middle ages, the comfort, the luxury but especially the location. Only the fewest many-stars- hotels can offer such a great view and exclusive situation! You want to stay longer, we'll make a best price for you!

Een sfeervolle woning, perfect gelegen in het centrum, tegenover het kasteel van Gent.

  • 4 of 5

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.
