The Ibis Gent Centrum St-Baafs Kathedraal hotel is placed just a twenty meters from the front door of that beautiful cathedral. We have stayed there several times and always enjoy it very much. We like being on the cathedral side so we can hear the bells throughout the day. In addition to St. Baafs, the Ibis is on the corner of a busy square with shops and restaurants, just a brief walk from 2 other famous towers of Gent and across a scenic canal by the St. Michael's bridge. It is also just a short walk from various tram lines throughout the city.
The daily breakfast buffet is always served fresh and the service is very good. There is also a full bar. The only drawback of the hotel is the rooms are a bit small and tight for two people. The beds are comfortable. While in Gent, however, spending much time in a hotel room is not likely to be a priority. We'll be back again and I highly recommend the Ibis Gent Centrum St-Baafs Kathedraal hotel.

Room Tip: On the cathedral side with a view of the square.

This is a fantastic and budget-friendly hotel in a wonderful location. It's in the middle of the historic center so you can walk anywhere. Our room was spacious and had a nice view of the cathedral. The front desk was helpful and gave us a map and pointers of the city. We would stay here again.

The hotel offers laundry but it is not self-service. My husband and I were backpacking, so we walked to Wasbar (only about a 5 minute walk from the hotel) and did our laundry while enjoying a beer and lunch.

Clean, well-appointed hotel very centrally located with tons of restaurants, shops and sites in downtown Gent. Located in a beautiful area surrounded by cathedrals. I will return! Small restaurant that serves a great breakfast in the morning. Photos taken within a block of hotel.

This was the 3rd of five Ibis hotels that we stayed at during our two week trip to The Netherlands and Belgium. We really enjoyed our 3-night stay here. The location right outside of the St Baafs Kathedraal was perfect for us. We found the room to be clean and comfortable like all of the other Ibis hotels and the staff was especially friendly and helpful. We wouldn't hesitate staying here again or recommending to our cost conscious friends traveling to Gent. If you are familiar with and appreciate moderate range hotels in the States like Comfort Inns, this is a very similar experience. You do have to pay extra for breakfast which one of us did and it was worthwhile. We also enjoyed eating at the restaurants on the opposite side of the square from the hotel.
