« Great stay in Gent »

Great location to see the historical area of Gent. The staff at the hotel were very polite and helpful. We were able to park our car in the hotel car park before check in (extra charge). We could then explore the area and all the sights on foot, knowing the car and our luggage were locked away.

« Nice hotel »

We stayed there for 1 night. It's a nice, decent hotel. Everything is clean. We didn't eat breakfast there, but next time we will. We booked also a parking space and we were able to park early. We were lucky that a customer already left early. The people who work there are very friendly and helpfull. We had a coffee on the go, but we didn't like that one. But that's a personal taste. What we would miss in the room (if we stay there longer) is a fridge. There was no fridge in the room. A big disadavantage is the noice during the night. People were making a lot of noise outside (and our window was closed), but we woke up because of that. So that's good for 1 or max 2 nights.

« Good value for money »

Great location. Just not quite clean. It's close to all tourism attractions but far away from the train stations. Staff are nice but the rooms seem to be not quite clean. It's noisy in the early morning.

« IBIS Gent St Baafs is the ideal hotel to visit the city of Gent. »

The location of the IBIS Gent St Baafs is just perfect: right next to the St Baafs cathedral and the belfry tower and very close to the Korenmarkt, the Graslei and the Gravensteen. All staff members were very friendly and helpful, and the buffet breakfast was the perfect start of the day (you can even bake your own Belgian waffle!). Our room was not very large but offered everything that we needed for a city trip: a good bed, a good shower and floors that are easy to clean. I can definitely recommend a stay in this hotel !

« Fantastic location, happy staff »

We arrived for a four day holiday in Ghent. Surprisingly quiet room at the front of the building, fantastic view of cathedral. We only had one breakfast in the hotel but it was very good. We had one meal in the restaurant also very tasty. My husband had several mosquito bites (as usual), from our walks outside the hotel. The staff at reception were very helpful with ice packs. Room very clean, bathroom large and modern, with hair dryer. (No kettle in room ) very pleased with room.

« Nice, clean, friendly staff, great location »

Really great service / price ratio. Clean room, very friendly staff, excellent breakfast, perfect location. The room was very standard, but this is what could be expected for the price. The only complain is that the window was a bit small and the room consequently not so light.

Apart from very, very difficult to find this hotel. The local was great. The hotel was good to stay at. The room was comfortable. The staff were friendly. The breakfast was very good. We were thankful that I had reserved a parking space.

dear guest, Thank you for your review. Since the circulation plan is installed it is even more easy to come to the hotel. From E40/E17 (Exit Gent Centrum) to go straight ahead till you are at the Cathedral with the Ibis Gent Centrum Kathedraal at your left hand. Turn to the left (Lange Kruisstraat) and find our the parking. Do not follow the GPS because most of them or not yet updated.

« Perfect location. Excellent service. »

This hotel enjoys a perfect location beside the Cathedral and opening onto the lively square opposite the bell tower. The good-sized, air-conditioned room was clean, comfortable and quiet with a generous bathroom. We were beside the lift and stairs but heard no noise from either. The breakfast buffet was extensive and of very good quality. The staff were all pleasant, friendly and helpful. We would definitely return to this hotel. Gent is a fabulous, vibrant city with a surprise round every corner.

« Little Niggles »

My husband and I use Ibis regularly. We like the clean crisp look of the bedrooms and consistency of what to expect. Ghent bedrooms were very clean and the net bedding even more comfortable. Just one niggle with breakfast. Very under done sausages, and less hot selection than we have found to be usual. We hope this is not going to be the same at other locations. Reception staff were exceptional, very helpful and friendly.

Great location in Ghent. Great service by the employee's. I was in town for business. Very comfortable stay. Located in the center of Ghent, you can walk to everything. I utilized the parking garage, which must be reserved.

« Convenient location and reasonable price »

The location is very good, near the sightseeing area; I had dinner in hotel, the price is reasonable, and the food is tasty; new bedding facilities with good sleep quality; the room does not have any kettle for boiling hot water, it is a little bit inconvenient esp in this cold weather, but the staff in restaurant is very nice and provide me the hot water on request

« A long weekend in Ghent. »

The Ibis hotel St. Baafs kathedraal for me is the best hotel in ghent. The staff are all friendly & provide the best possible service. The rooms & beds are comfortable & the buffet breakfast is excellent . To top this the hotel is situated in a prime spot in the city center.

« Back in Gent »

Great hotel, probably my 9th visit. Great location, friendly reception & particularly bar staff. It's great to find somewhere consistently good & that my room choice was accommodated without difficulty. Position in town centre , easy access all added value. Approx a 25 walk or easy tram from station. Will be back in 2017

« average hotel in a really great city »

Difficult to sleep because of building site on one side of the hotel (not their fault of course), and tram traffic on the other. The staff were polite. The breakfast was very good. The rooms are Ibis standard, ie functional but not aesthetically pleasing.

« nice stay in the centre of Gent »

very nice people at the desk giving you all the information you need and more. Location of the hotel couldn't be better. Also the beds are of good quality so after a night on these beds you are full of energy again to visit the beautiful city of Gent.

« Just travelling »

This was a return visit, so we knew what to expect, however the city fathers, in their wisdom, are digging up many of the access routes through the city, which posed a few problems (SatNav failed to solve these, but MapNav workerd well, as usual) Excellent location, with an underground car park on site - arrive early to ensure a space. Larger than usual Ibis rooms, well laid out, and staff courteos and helpful as usual..

« Good location for exploring Ghent »

If you arrive by train, take the No. 1 tram outside the station (look to your left). Buy the ticket from the machine next to the tram stop (3 Euros). The tram stops round the corner from the Cathedral - about 10- 15 minutes depending on the traffic. The hotel was clean and comfortable, and the staff were helpful. The location is very central for sightseeing around the town.

Great location, comfortable and good value for money. Press the button for under ground car park immediately you get there, parking very limited in Gent. Air conditioning was noisy but room was comfortable and clean

« Great hotel »

Excellent hotel with great service from the staff. While small, the rooms are not so small that you can't even move while in there. Very good breakfast for an ibis, much better than the ibis styles in Paris. Very well located, near all the attractions.
