Just what I needed!

Customer review rating 4.2/5

Gayle M. Friends - 10/06/2019 AccorHotels certified review

Clean room with lovely shower facilities and although the room itself was small, the layout made the most of it and was very clever. The staff behind reception and in the bar/dining area were exceptionally helpful, polite and friendly and this made it for me, not to forget the location which was perfect! Thank you Ibis Hotel, I’ll see you again next year xx

Dear Mrs M., Thank you for the great review of our hotel! It is a pleasure to read that the room was clean and you felt welcome. We will share your feedback with our team, it will encourage them to keep up the good service. We are looking forward to welcome you again next year! Sincerely, Esther van der Helm Assistant Manager

Lovely hotel in a good position

Q4961EHpaulm Couples - 06/06/2019 TripAdvisor review

Loved this hotel in such a convenient place in Gent. Parking was a challenge with a van. Maybe move the rubbish bins? Apart from this all was good. Would stay here again (I think this was our second trip).

I can imagine that the parking was a challenge, esp. with a van. As space in the city center is always precious and we cannot put the bins downstairs we can’t do a lot. thank you for thinking with us. Much appreciated

Very friendly and professional staff, clean room but needs some repair

Staff very helpful. Room clean but very small: very little clothes hanging space. Shower good. Breakfast basic with limited choice and plates and bowls which were too small.

Location is amazing

Drain smells coming out of the bath overflow and drain was a bit annoying, and there were no electric outlets by the bedheads.

Very basic room - very high rate

Customer review rating 4.2/5

Anonymous Business - 29/05/2019 AccorHotels certified review

The location is good. However the hotel is a budget hotel with a fairly high rate of 141 Euros.

Ideal location and comfortable.

Okay. No one advised how to turn on the lights. Had to ask at the desk. Few places to place much. Minimalist approach.

Good though room was small and the entrance to the parking garage (€26 a night) was very tight for an SUV.

The hotel is really in the city. The staff is very friendly and we felt welcome. The room was very clean and everything was functioning as it should. We would certainly book this hotel on our next stay.

Good location, small room and very small and hard bed

Customer review rating 4.2/5

Pim V. D. P. Couples - 18/05/2019 AccorHotels certified review

First of the location of the hotel is perfect and the staff was nice. However, we chose for the superior room, expecting a nice room with (as mentioned on the website) a LARGE double bed, but this was not what we got. Instead we got a small room, with quite some damage to the walls and furniture and a very small (1.40m wide) bed, which was also very hard. Next to that, we weren't even able to sit on the toilet properly because there just was no space for your legs. Overall the location and Gent itself was very nice, but we were not very satisfied with the hotel room.

Beste heer VAN DE P., Bedankt dat u de tijd heeft genomen om ons te vertellen over uw ervaring in ibis Gent Centrum St Baafs Kathedraal. Bij Ibis, streven we naar een hoogwaardige dienstverlening voor elke gast; uw commentaar is daarom erg belangrijk voor ons. Het spijt ons te horen dat de kamer niet aan uw verwachtingen heeft voldaan; Het is ontzettend jammer dat uitgerekend u, die op voorhand een groot bed/ruime kamer heeft gevraagd wordt ingecheckt op een hoekkamer, een kamer met mooi uitzicht maar met een kleiner bed. Bij deze onze oprechte verontschuldigigen! Heeft u aan onze receptie gevraagd of er een mogelijkheid was om de kamer te wisselen zodat wij onze fout alsnog konden rechtzetten? Het is voor ons belangrijk dat dergelijke situaties naar tevredenheid van de gast worden opgelost dus uw info kan ons zeker helpen om dit in de toekomst te voorkomen. Wij stellen het op prijs dat u uw opmerkingen met ons heeft willen delen en wij hopen dat u ons de kans wilt geven om u in de nabije toekomst beter van dienst te zijn. met vriendelijke groeten,, Esther van der Helm Assistant Manager

Nice and helpful people, but facilities and policy maybe can improve...

Dear Mr T., 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. At Ibis, we strive to provide a superior service experience for every customer; therefore your feedback is very important to us. Please rest assured that we are taking the appropriate measures. Our housekeeper will reexplain the procudures if guests ask not to clean the room. Just for my understanding : Did you put the do not disturb card ? 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

Martyn B. Business - 09/05/2019 AccorHotels certified review

Using a car sat nav it was very difficult to find the hotel and then found your car park is small so was full and the nearest car park is a 15 minute walk away. Particularly annoying as I had a damaged knee and couldn't walk very well. The P5 car park was good though. The room I had was angular which made it feel uncomfortable even though it wasn't. Bed was nice and I slept well. Breakfast was nice too so were your receptionists.

Dear Mr B., 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. At Ibis, we strive to provide a superior service experience for every customer; therefore your feedback is very important to us. Unfortunately we do not have any impact on the gps providers. Since the beginning of April 2018 we have a new mobility plan in Ghent, but some of gps are not updated. Parking Kouter is not so far away from the hotel , but I can imagine that it is a whole operation with a damaged knee. Very sorry for that. 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

Enjoyed our stay in Gent. Staff were friendly. The breakfast is ok. The room was just big enough. The parking was very tight for a van. The entrance could be wider. The city is lovely.

Dear PAUL M., 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 esp. from a le club Gold-member. I will share your comments with our team.

The hotel was clean and ideally situated to visit the old parts of the city. Despite being adjacent to the cathedral and tram routes it was very quiet. The staff were friendly and helpful at all times.
