Belgian Hospitality

TripAdvisor rating 4.0/5

KatieHornPlayer Solo travel - 12/07/2019 TripAdvisor review

I traveled to Gent, Belgium to attend the International Horn Society's 51st gathering. The first morning I headed out to go to the music school and tripped on a cobblestone in front of Sint Baaf's Cathedral. I fell very hard and hit my head...a good friend came to my rescue and waled me back to the IBIS at St. Baaf's. The hotel staff was wonderful...they arranged for me to go to the hospital and when I arrived back at the hotel they took great care of me. They always had some ice wrapped up in a towel for me to nurse my bruise - they found me a cane - and the lovely ladies who tended the breakfast room brought me coffee and a lovely plate from what is a self serve breakfast buffet. The caring and kindness of the entire hotel staff exceeded the attentiveness one might expect from a far more expensive hotel. Never underestimate Belgian hospitality!

Great

P L. Friends - 07/07/2019 AccorHotels certified review

I was attending the International Horn Symposium at the Music Conservatory just across the square. I had a room overlooking the square and the cathedral which was great. I’m gluten free and at breakfast they had cereal and bread for me which made it all much easier.

Dear Mrs L., Thank you for the great review of our hotel! It is a pleasure to read you enjoyed our unique location in the historical citycentre. We will also share your feedback about the breakfast with our team, it is nice to hear you appreciate the glutenfree offer. We are looking forward to welcome you again in the near future. Sincerely, Esther van der Helm Assistant Manager

Very nice location in the center of Ghent, friendly staff, very pleasant stay.

Wendy Business - 05/07/2019 AccorHotels certified review

We were here for a conference and found this hotel was a good price and a nice hotel. The staff were all very friendly and helpful. The rooms were a bit small as there was no place to put your luggage. Tiny closet. The included breakfast was very good.

Very convenient to be in the city center. Quite hotel, clean room with a complete breakfast

Customer review rating 4.2/5

A Business - 04/07/2019 AccorHotels certified review

I would suggest not to put on the airco in the rooms after cleaning. Every guest can decide by themselves when they arrive in the room. You would save energy and the room would cool down quickly when needed. I was the whole day out and I even don't like using airco, thus energy was used for nothing in my case. Hotels with friendly environmental policies are highly appreciated by many guests :-).

Dear Mrs O., Thank you for the great review of our hotel! It is a pleasure to read that the room was clean and you enjoyed our breakfastbuffet. We appreciate your concern about the environment. Exactly for this reason we choose a few years ago for an automatic reset every day for our airco system at noon. In winter it automatically heats untill 16°C and in summer it cools until 24°C. If rooms are not used for a longer period the temperature stays stable. Ofcourse each guest can choose to switch it on/of during his stay. I will check with our technicien if our system is still the most environmental friendly to be sure. We are glad that you enjoyed your stay and hope to see you again very soon. Sincerely, Esther van der Helm Assistant Manager

Not comfortable

Customer review rating 4.2/5

Anonymous Families - 03/07/2019 AccorHotels certified review

The room was not ventilated very well and not sure if someone had been smoking in room. Ended I removed the air filter and ran through to try and remove the odor. there was construction on one of the floors of the building. There were construction workers constantly at the entrance of the building smoking. They also started drilling and working at 9 am. Our check out was 11 am. My expectations are to sleep until it is time to leave since it is my vacation and the last night we were in town. I do understand that upkeep is a requirement, but I believe notifying the guest before booking would be the considerate thing to do.

Dear Mrs D., Thank you for taking the time to tell us about your experience at the ibis Gent Centrum St Baafs Kathedraal. At Ibis, we strive to provide a superior service experience for every customer; therefore your feedback is very important to us. I am sorry to hear that the current renovations caused inconvenience, please allow me to express my sincerest apologies. We are aware that constructions do give noise and we try to limit this for our guests. We do understand your remark about the hour they start, so we agreed to start in the weekend only from 10 am on. We appreciate your sharing your concerns, and it is our hope that you will give us the opportunity to welcome you again and give you a better experience. Sincerely, Esther van der Helm Assistant Manager

Reasonably priced hotel in center of Ghent

Anonymous Business - 01/07/2019 AccorHotels certified review

On a Business trip and was looking for a hotel in the center of Ghent in the vicinity of some restaurant. Hotel has parking (I believe) but public parking nearby at good rate as well. Room was bit small but did not spent much time in it so was fine.

Beste mijnheer M., Bedankt om de tijd te nemen voor uw beoordeling over ons hotel. Het is altijd fijn te horen dat uw verblijf naar wens is geweest en we kijken ernaar uit u nogmaals bij ons te kunnen verwelkomen. Met vriendelijke groet, Esther van der Helm Assistant Manager

Customer review rating 4.2/5

Steve F. Couples - 22/06/2019 AccorHotels certified review

Welcoming staff, clean and tidy room and a reasonable breakfast. There were two negative points, one being the very expensive underground car park fee, and the other was the short, steep ramp into the underground car park. Easy to negotiate in a car, but on a motorcycle not so! Dim lighting as you enter means you have no real warning of the shallow concrete steps in the middle of the ramp which can easily cause the rider to come off! The flat parts of the ramp are too narrow for a motorcycle with panniers to manage safely! Please do away with those pointless concrete steps before someone has a nasty accident!

Dear Mr F., Thank you for taking the time to write a review of your stay at our hotel. It is always a pleasure to read that the room was clean and you felt welcome. We understand your feedback about our parking. We have limited places and we charge te same price as the city parkings in the neighbourhood of the hotel. If our parking is fully booked it is nicer to direct them to alternatives that are similar or cheaper priced instead proposing more expensive ones. Thanks for your information about the difficulties with the motorcycle, we will take into account to inform our guests with motorbikes in advance. We hope to have the opportunity to welcome you again in our hotel. Sincerely, Esther van der Helm Assistant Manager

Excellent location for central Ghent. Difficult to find the hotel, especially with street closures around the hotel for markets and festivals. Staff all very friendly and extremely helpful - very understanding when we had issues with our room; provided a very prompt and sensible solution.

Dear Mr B., We very much appreciate your comments regarding your stay at the ibis Gent Centrum St Baafs Kathedraal. It is always a pleasure to receive positive feedback. I will share your comments with our team. I'm glad they helped you. Thank you again for sharing your experience, and we hope your next visit will be as pleasant as the previous one.

Håvard I. Friends - 19/06/2019 AccorHotels certified review

We chose this hotel as our base of operations for a long awaited beer trip to Belgium, due to its perfect placement. We were pleasantly surprised by the high standard and beautiful surroundings of the hotel (specially the Sint-Baafsplein right outside, with its cathedral and belfry, and many excellent restaurants and beerpubs). We stayed for an extended weekend (fri-mon), and had a great time at the hotel and in Gent. The staff was very helpful and the rooms were excellent! We will most likely return to this lovely city, and when we do, this is the hotel we're going to stay at. Cheers, The Beer-thirsty Norwegians :)

Dear Havard, Thank you for the great review of our hotel! It is a pleasure to read that you appreciate our unique location and your and your friends were pleasantly suprised by our staff and rooms. We will definitely share your feedback with our team and are looking forward to welcome you and your friends again and sooth your thirst! Sincerely, Esther van der Helm Assistant Manager

Great location but can get noisy because of that

Customer review rating 4.2/5

Andy Business - 18/06/2019 AccorHotels certified review

Comfortable room realistically priced and easy to get to using public transport or taxi's. Great location for exploring Ghent and close to many restaurants and bars if you needed to go out to socialise. The staff were very helpful, friendly and knowledgeable.

Dear Andy, Thank you for the positive review of our hotel! It is a pleasure to read you appreciate the service given by our team and felt welcome. We see there was apparantly a misunderstanding with the coffee/croissant? The price of our breakfastbuffet is €15, if you only want a coffee/croissant you can order this at the bar for €5. It would be usefull if you could let us know what went wrong so we can do the necessary to avoid this in the future. We are looking forward to welcome you again at our hotel soon! Sincerely, Esther van der Helm Asistant Manager

Comfort and central

Customer review rating 4.2/5

Bine Couples - 18/06/2019 AccorHotels certified review

Central location, everything is reachable on foot, very friendly staff. Expensive car park.

Dear Mr A., Thank you for the positive review of our hotel! It is a pleasure to read you felt welcome and you appreciate our unique location in the heart of the city. We understand your remark about the parking, we only have 15 places and the price per night is comparable with the cityparkings in the neighbourhood. Parking Kouter is a cheaper alternative. We are looking forward to welcome you again soon! Sincerely, Esther van der Helm Assitant Manager

Another mean Ibis hotel

Customer review rating 4.2/5

Anthony P. Couples - 18/06/2019 AccorHotels certified review

This was the second Ibis hotel we stayed in recently and the over riding philosophy is clear: This is basically a cheap hotel with an expensive P.. It is in a convenient position and the staff are friendly and most helpful but the room was small and lacked any refinements: No kettle, no safe, no hand towels. And the bath towels were so thin you could see through them. Both Ibis hotels asked us to pay the moment we had checked in.

Dear Mr P., Thank you for taking the time to tell us about your experience at the ibis Gent Centrum St Baafs Kathedraal. I am sorry that your experience did not meet your expectations; please allow me to express my sincerest apologies. Ibis is an economy product so unfortunately we do not have cattles or safes in the room. Of course you can always hire a safe at the reception and we also have cattles at your disposal. We appreciate your sharing your concerns, and it is our hope that you will give us the opportunity to better serve you in the near future. Sincerely, Veronique Van Hulle General Manager

Always a safe address for our visiting friends

Nicole Solo - 18/06/2019 AccorHotels certified review

Our young friend stayed with you for 1 night only - we did not discuss her stay in detail but it seems the room was quiet and very clean and our guest definitely liked the location in the very center next to the Cathedral . She had breakfast at our home, so cannot say anything more about that. The reception was outstanding : cordial , efficient and very helpful. This is the sort of welcome that we have come to expect and enjoy in Ibis hotels.

Dear Nicole, Thank you for the great review of our hotel! It is a pleasure to read that the room was clean and the service of our receptionteam was outstanding. We will definitely share your feedback with them, it will encourage them. We are looking forward to welcome your visitors again very soon! Sincerely, Esther van der Helm Assistant Manager
