I felt a bit like I was staying in old Belgium. the Stairs were old and wooden, the rooms filled with antique furniture. There is a fireplace mantle that would have been perfect had I been able to run a fire, but it was alas, simply decorative, likely out of fire hazard in a hotel. The bathroom has a bathtub-...

A beautiful old quiet hotel with bed and breakfast down a quiet side street next to a music academy. This place reminded me of staying in student's accomodation in Oxford but of much higher standard. Staff are very welcoming and rooms are nice and clean.

Hotel in a 16th century house. Excellent location and very helpful staff. I had to leave early (before breakfast timings started) and the owner gave me a to-do breakfast to take along :) hospitable and friendly. Recommend.

The hotel makes play on its history and links with the past even to having a suit of armour in the dining room. For those wanting nostalgia this may be the very place. However, staying in a museum may not be to everyone's taste.The amenities are somewhat dated and, I suspect, have not been upgraded for a number of years....

Lovely, funky, amazing location...I would go back !! The breakfast is included and very nice. The room we stayed in could use little updating while preserving the old feel...new bedding, and a fresh coat of paint would be a +. Loved the little courtyard. The staff was very nice , helpful and professional. Gent is an incredible city with an...

We settled on Erasmus as we left our run for a reasonable price in Bruges too late (August is like that in Europe!). To our delight we loved Ghent as well as our hotel, possibly more than Bruges. The hotel is a very old building, which we loved, three storeys high. No lift. Even the first floor rooms have to...

The staff at the Erasmus made us feel very much at home. We had the key to the front door and could come and go as we pleased. The furnishings of the rooms are old fashioned; some would even refer to them as being antiques. Yet, in spite of it being in an old building, everything somehow works well. The...

Like vintage cars, old hotels have a special charme. In this case, the charme extended to the staff: the were friendly because they wanted to be friendly and not because some senior executive told them to and had them trained to use the right phrases. And the charme includes the location: a two minute walk and there is a first...

The Reception staff were friendly and very helpful, and the hotel in an interesting old building was a welcome contrast to the more modern types. We had one single and one double room and they were both nicely furnished. There was not a huge choice at breakfast but the quality was good, with one of the best fresh croissants I...

I found this online late at night for the next night. I walked up and actually couldn't figure out how to get in. The lady at the desk heard my confusion and looked out the door to find me! (There is a door bell on the right hand side of the door). Though it was about 10 AM a room...
