Design Apartment with Balcony and View over Ghent Towers
All guests have a private apartment, there is 1 apartment per level. So there is a lot of privacy. Downstairs we have a laundry, which you can use.

Apartment in Ghent
Lovely one bedroom apartment in the heart of Ghent
Lovely newly-built one bedroom apartment in the heart of Ghent. Located in one of the main shopping avenues and within close walking distance of all the main cultural, entertainment and commercial hubs. The apartment is located on the second floor. Even though it is located in the city centre, the neighbourhood is very peaceful and quiet, especially in the evening and during the night. The apartment is perfect for a city-trip and expats looking to stay in Ghent for several weeks or months.
