          • Older travelers
            7.4

            Spacious rooms, unique experience sleeping in a former monastery, cool building designed to maintain the aura yet also very comfortable.

          • Older travelers
            8.8

            Beautiful building right in the centre of town. Friendly and efficient staff, huge room (actually, a three-room suite) for just €115 a night.

            A bit cold - but we culd turn the heating up.

          • Single
            3.8

            The staff at the reception was polite.

            Was given a twin room (instead of a double) outside the monastery, right on the outside corridor leading to the main building, with people coming in or talking in front of my door all night, plus noise traffic & feeling the cold from outside.Furniture was basic, I wouldnt rate this hotel with more than one star.Poor value for money, plus dont mention the monastery & quiet atmosphere when you send your guests outside of it for a bargain.

          • Group of friends
            5.8

            From the web site I expected it to be much nicer than it was.

            Beds weren't very good. Hotel not well kept up.

          • Family with children
            10.0

            Beautiful building, well converted into hotel. Very friendly staff. Helpful with special needs of wheelchair user.

            Breakfast option very expensive.

          • Couple
            5.4

            The location was convenient to the major sights.

            The room was old and threadbare. The wifi worked intermittently. There was no shower curtain, just a tub with hand held nozzle. We booked here as it was the cheapest place in town left and it was not worth the 100 Euro. The concept of the monastery as hotel is neat, but the execution was very poor. I don't recommend it if you want value for money.

          • Couple
            10.0

            The hotel was very peaceful and we very much enjoyed the tranquil atmosphere and also the excellent location close to the old part of Ghent. We were delighted in every respect with the hotel.

            We were totally delighted with the hotel and have no negative comments to report.

          • Single
            7.8

            Amazing ambience! Very friendly and helful staff. Helped me to print my boarding pass. I forgot my wallet in the internet room and it was still there! So a very safe place. Very clean showers. Nice to have free tea & coffee on each floor. Very close to the old city.

            Luckily I always travel with earplugs and an eye mask. Think the hotel should offer people that upon check in as the walls and ceilings are very thin. People staying in rooms above are very noisy when walking on the wooden floors. I could hear the person in the next room talking on Skype. Perhaps there should also be a time when everyone should be as quiet as possible and close their doors as quiet as possible, E.G. after 10pm. People staying above my room (slot 2.7) were partying until 1am and I could hear them even with my earplugs in. I also think the price of eur46 is a bit too high for the hostel rooms, should be around eur30. Pity the breakfast is so expensive (eur17).

          • Single
            6.6

            Easy walk into Ghent's historic centre; car parking on site (plus car can be left for the rest of the day after check out); free and reliable WiFi; free tea/coffee available 24/7.

            Room and facilities were fairly described, but one toilet cubicle between many just isn't enough in practice. No hot water in room sink (and no sinks in the shower rooms) is a real practical difficulty for wet shavers. Rubbish bin not emptied from previous guest. In short, "austere" accommodation - as described - but probably priced too high. Breakfast @17.50 euros extra simply avoided.

          • Single
            8.2

            Convenient location, best price, good for those who plan to spend most of the time out.

            The room was a bit dark and quite small. Breakfast way too expensive.

          • Family with children
            5.8

            The size of the room, the architecture, the polite people at the reception.

            I thought breakfast should have been included for the price we paid.

          • Single
            8.2

            The calm and contemplative location.

            Everything was good.

          • Single
            8.8

            Excellent location, beautiful monastery building, inviting atmosphere (staff light-up candles throughout hallways and play suitable music),very good breakfast (15 euros though).

            Room was very simple, which I expected. It would have been nice to have more than 1 towel and more ample supply of toiletries.
