Upon arrival the hotel couldn't find my reservation, then they found it but couldn't understand why I wasn't assigned a room. I finally got a room. The room smelled like a dirty ashtray. Supposedly there is no smoking in the hotels so this would have been there for year? The night manager told me the furniture and drapery were from the 80's when it was a smoking hotel. What? First day someone came into my room with guests. "Why are you in this room?" They asked. I decided to try and clean the room a little and vacuumed the vents to the a/c which I am posting a picture of. Day 2, knock on the door "Did you change rooms?" NO. However later that day after waking up with a horrible sore throat and issues with asthma...I requested a new room. It was better smelling. Day 3 knock on the door "Aren't you supposed to check out today? NO. I had paid for 3 nights. WHAT THE HELL. Then I asked for an iron. "It's being used I can bring it when it comes back." You have 1 iron for an entire hotel???? I can say that the location was amazing. Right in the center. However my stay was less than desirable. Collapse

Hotel Gravensteen offers a very pleasant stay in Ghent and is directly opposite the castle and a couple of minutes' walk to tourist information office. I took a superior room which was located in the old (and nicer) part of the hotel and it came with an excellent coffee maker. This made up for the coffee at breakfast, which if you live in Vienna, comes under the category of 'undrinkable'. However, if you can cope with that -- then this hotel represents an outstanding choice. I can also recommend that if you are staying a few days, then buy a 2 or 3 day Ghent card from the Tourist Info Office -- it will pay for itself! Collapse
Fantastic and great great location!

I should wait until I leave to make a comment; but the experience has been so nice so far I just could not think about giving you something less than 5 points. Extremely friendly staff, room is cozy, clean and the bed is very comfortable. Great standards for a 3 star hotel. Great view from our room. Nice air-conditioning. I just loved it. So I will keep enjoying this crazy well located small beautiful hotel for one more night. See you at the reception! Thank you so much for everything Collapse

My mother and I have just returned from a very enjoyable 4 night stay at the gravensteen hotel. The hotel is very easy to get to from st. Pieter's train station. Take Tram no.1, direction wondelgem or evergem and get off at gravensteen. The stop is more or less opposite the hotel. A 10 journey tram ticket costs 15 euros and you can buy them at the travel centre in the train station. On arrival we were bowled over by the location of the hotel, opposite the beautiful gravensteen castle at the end of a pretty cobbled street. Check in was very easy and Lynn on reception gave us a very friendly and warm welcome. The reception area is very nice, lots of marble and a sweeping staircase. Our room was in the older building at the front of the hotel and was accessible via the lift and a small flight of stairs. The room was a very good size with 2 single beds with bedside tables, a desk area with tea and coffee making facilities a large flat screen TV with lots of channels, even BBC and ITV which was a surprise! A wardrobe with plenty of space and a lovely modern bathroom which looked almost brand new! House keeping staff were very friendly and kept the room immaculate!The breakfast room is situated in the annexe building, just a walk across a small courtyard and then take the lift up to the first floor. The breakfast room itself is lovely, very tastefully decorated and very relaxed. we really enjoyed having our breakfast here every morning. The breakfast was fantastic!..... and included everything you could want, bacon,scrambled eggs, sausages, boiled eggs, cereal,fruit, pastries, bread ,cheese etc fresh orange juice and tea and coffee. The breakfast staff waizer and gerburt were extremely friendly and we enjoyed our chats with them every morning. We would also like to say thank-you to axel and the other gentleman on reception who were very friendly and courteous throughout our stay. Overall, we really enjoyed our stay here and would highly recommend this hotel to anyone planning a holiday in his beautiful city! Collapse

stayed for 3 nights,nice big room ,great shower,room was at the front off the hotel so a bit off early morn racket with bin men ,commercial deliveries etc,would request a rear room in future.car parking i thought a bit expensive at 15EU a night,next time i'll get the car into ramen 4 car park,cheap as chips and only a few mins walk from hotel. double bed we had was the usual continental style off two singles shoved together no worries there cept mine had a bit off a ridge in the middle so if i wasn't perfectly balanced i'd roll over to one side or the other.hopefully when we stay in future and we will a rear room wont have that issue. Staff are really friendly and full off local advice and what has been said already is its logicality to the castle ,1 min walk and to the main canal ,banks ,restaurants ,bars and shops.2nd time in ghent and will be back next year.
