We stayed at Novotel Ghent for 2 nights whilst visiting the city. The hotel is very centrally located, just a stone's throw from the Belfry and other sights. Staff were friendly and rooms were comfortable. We had interconnecting rooms as travelling with teenage children. Younger families can all stay in single room and use sofa bed for youngsters. We didn't...

The Novotel is in an excellent location - 2/3 minutes from the main square and within 5-10 minutes of pretty much all the sites. It is set just off the main square which helps keep the noise down at night. As with all the old town hotels, it is about a 10-15 taxi journey from the St Pieter railway station...

We had a pleasant stay for weekend night with 3 young kids. The service was very nice and efficient. The room was large and modern. I would even say romantic if we wouldn't have the 3 little ones nearby. Breakfast was ok. The best thing is its very very centric location. All attractions are within 5-7 minutes walk from the...

The Novotel Gent Centrum is trying to be most modern. Must slide card key into elevator to get it to work. Haven't we moved beyond this? I much prefer to simply move my wallet across the elevator detector or room lock to get access. In the winter I have to take off my gloves, find the card key, etc. Standard...

We had booked a room with double bed + sofa bed for the kids. We changed this booking to add another night without problem or extra costs. The room we finally got was fantastic. A corner room with small entry area with dining table and toilet leading into a large room with double bed, sofa bed, a desk area and...

Good business hotel in the middle of the historical city. Small but cozy rooms, modern comfort. Clean! Make sure you ask for a room with view to the main square. I did not try breakfast, so I can't quote.

Liked this hotel very much. Nice and quite room witha very comfy bed. Fridge and waterboiler with coffee and tea. The bathroom was top class with separated shower and wc. Breakfast was perfect even freshly baked waffels. Situated right on Korenmarkt near a lot of restaurants and pubs. Would be happy to book this hotels again.

The hotel is clean and the staff is very friendly. However, the rooms appear a bit old, and I've seen better Novotel hotels than this one. I booked the Suite room, but was disappointed about the very small bathroom and boring colors in the bedroom. The living room was nothing special and I regret it to have booked the Suite....
