Great location and good value

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on March 4, 2006

I found it difficult to fault this hotel at all at the price paid of 82 Euro per night. There is a bright and airy reception area with pleasant and efficient staff. Facilities include an outdoor terrace and swimming pool for the summer, sauna and fitness rooms and even a Playstation machine in the lobby. There is also internet access available for a couple of euro although there is only one PC and it could do with upgrading.

The rooms are comfortable with a double desk and a sofa that could turn into a second double bed. Minibar, multi-channel TV and PC modem connection. Separate WC and bathroom which has a good sized power shower and complimentary toiletries. The lifts are key card operated for extra security.

There is a well supplied breakfast buffet that fulfils all the requirements of a continental breakfast and more. The Gruuthuus bar is open 4.30pm until 1.00am and has comfortable seating and a nice ambiance. It serves a number of trappist beers and a selection of single malt whiskies and genevers that are ideal for an aperitif or a nightcap. The Cote Jardin restaurant opens until midnight.

A good place to stay, I have no hesitation in recommending it.

Unique Quality: The location is perfect being just a few minutes walk from Korenmarkt, St Bavo’s Cathedral and the River Leie and in the shadow of the Belfry Tower. An 8-10 Euro taxi ride from the train station, or 1 Euro on the tram (get off at Korenmarkt). It's also only a 30 minute walk from the station but I would not recommend doing it with luggage.

Directions: Right in the middle of the action around Korenmarkt, St Bavo's and the Belfrey.

Superbly Located Hotel

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on July 16, 2004

We stayed in the hotel for a period of 3 nights.

I found it to be excellent value considering it's very central location, and comfort. Not too far from a tram stop which is on the same line as the main station.

I used the pool and internet access with out any trouble. In fact the sunloungers by the pool were nice to relax on after a few minutes swimming.

The room itself was plenty big enough with ensuite bath/shoewroom and complimentary shower gel and shampoo.

The breakfast was as comprehensive as it needed to be, a selection of meats and cheeses, rolls, bread, fruit, juices, coffee, some hot things and cereals.

Didn't try out the restaurant or bar but both looked fine.

The staff and the service they proovided was of a very high standard, all were friendly and willing to help if the need arose.

Unique Quality: The Rooms at the front have a nice view of St Michaels Church and the streets around them. There are also some rooms with pool views.

The swimming pol is a little chilly, but there again it wasn''t the best of weather. Perfectly acceptable.

Internet access is available for a few Euros.

A small gym is available to guests as well as a sauna.

Also an outdoor table tennis table available.

Also several conference rooms are avilable for those who need them.
