    Superb

    Staff were very helpful. I particualrly appreciated the free wifi connection

    Not in a particularly attractive location but that was the only slightly negative point.

  • 6.6
    Good

    The location is a little far from the city center and the central station, but the bus from the central station does access to the hotel within walking distance. The reception staff is of great help to us.

    Of course the location is not so good and the bus frequency is somehow low, almost half an hour. The hardware of the hotel is just so so.

    Superb

    Asked for quiet room but was put next to the linen room Why are cleaners starting to clean rooms at 8am if you only need to be out by 12pm !!?? In general... it will be really great if other guests can consider people's privacy by being less noisy, especially in the hall-ways early morning / late nights!!!! Most people go away over weekends to have peace & quietness!

    good breakfast. good location

    The matrasses are far too soft, not firm enough. Charge of 8 Euros for parking.

    Superb

    Very quiet, clean, spacious, comfortable room and bathroom. Modern facility with excellent breakfast.

    Location is not ideal -- far away from tourist attractions. Poor directions to find the hotel.

    Nice rooms for a good price. Good for children with families.

    Good

    The rooms are quite big, staff is friendly, breakfast service and quality o.k.

    On the 6th Floor there is a lot of noise from some kind of extractor coming from the kitchen. Near the end of the passway, like room 625, the noise and vibrations are even worse. Staff told me there was no other room available, but that the noise would stop when the kitchen closed, this was true, but late in the evening. And early in the morning it started again. I sincerely think this is something unworthy of a modern hotel.

    Very kind and helpful staff. Breakfast was reasonably good. Nice room with good TV. Free low-speed interent; pay for faster downloads.

    Far from city center. OK if traveling by car.

    Fabulous

    Free sofabed and meals for children (free breakfast and dinner buffet). Fairly new and clean facilities, large room. Great value for price. Helpful reception.

    Location in the middle of nowhere but convenient if you have a car.

    Staff at the front desk was friendly.

    I thought the breakfast was very disappointing. It was poorly presented, the breakfast room was very crowded & and the selection terrible! Considering the price we had to Pay - to was a busy weekend in gent - charges for internet and parking seemed to high! Location next to the motorway in a industrial part of town only recommendable for business guests!

    Fabulous

    I was looking for the best package. Holiday Inn met my needs for the most part. We had stayed at Holiday Inn in Southern Germany a couple of years ago so I knew their reputation. Great breakfast, my daughter(17yrs) stayed free, we had secure parking although it cost and I wanted internet in the room. I also enjoyed the bar option. It was a very comfortable stay! We drove so we weren't concerned about locality. But the Inn is just off the autobahn.

    I did not like that the in room internet was not high speed and I had to pay extra.
