Interaction with Guests
Once a booking is made, I will contact the guest with a short welcome note and answer any questions. A week before the trip I'll contact you again to confirm an arrival time. Through email you'll receive a guide on how to get to the apartment.
The neighborhood is in the middle of the city center, but in a very quite street. You are surrounded by medieval buidlings and cozy restaurants and shops.
In the apartment there's a list with all our tips and the sights.
You can get almost anywhere on foot in Ghent. The sights are all close together. From the stain you can take a tram to the center. There are also several busses. You can also rent a bike or take a trip with a boat on the rivers in Ghent.
Ghent is a car free zone, so it's wise to park your car in a parking lot. Parking on the street side is very pricy.
Other Things to Note
The apartment is on the first floor (USA: second floor). There's a small stairs that leads to the apartment.
Public parking is about 3 min walk from the apartment for €10/day (Vrijdagsmarkt).

We hope you keep our apartment nice and tidy. Think of our neighbors when you decide to host a singalong. Please, don't smoke inside the apartment. There are no pets allowed.
The flat photographed beautifully, but the spaces worked very well and felt better than I thought they would. Gent is a beautiful place and to be close to all the history and character was inspiring, while being in a comfortable and functional apartment that fitted our needs well. The walls of photographic art, interesting books and the selection of music made me feel like I was in a movie. I certainly am going to recommend Gent as a destination and definitely this place to stay.
We zijn met z'n vieren 3 nachten in dit geweldige appartement van Ben geweest. We werden hartelijk ontvangen door de ouders van Ben en kregen een rondleiding door het huis. Het voelde meteen goed. De foto's en de beschrijving van de ruimte in de advertentie klopten als een bus. Sterker nog, het overtrof zelfs onze verwachtingen. Het huis staat midden in het centrum en we hebben alle bezienswaardigheden van Gent te voet kunnen bereiken. In de nabije omgeving zijn tal van leuke en lekkere eettentjes te vinden. Gezellig stadje en de Gentenaren zijn zeer vriendelijk!
Fantastic clean apartment in a brilliant central location. Ben's parents welcomed us on arrival and were extremely friendly and helpful. Would definitely stay here again, highly recommended!
The location of the apartment is just perfect for a visit in Gent. Everything you can imagine and possibly need was available. We enjoyed every single minute we stayed and would reckommend it to anybody who is interessted. Thanks for the lovely welcome surprise and the warm welcome by the hosts. We just loved it!

We liked our stay in this apartment. It was very well equipped and had the luxury of a small patio terrace. Beds and bath were especially nice. Friday and saturday night some street noise from late bar visitors, but that is part of inner city life. Gent is lively, historic and authentic. Ben's parents took care of us, thanks for that. We all had a great weekend!
Ben's apartment was amazing! The overall feel of the place made our stay really special. It was clean and comfortable (especially the beds!). Everything was provided for. Its location in a quiet area off of the main streets of Gent made it convenient for us to make it a base in Belgium. We loved Gent all the more because of Ben and his parents' attention to their guests. I cannot recommend the place highly enough! :)
Нас было 7 человек! 4 взрослых и 3 ребенка (1 год, 4 года и 5 лет). Квартира имеет несколько перепадов высоты, но никто не пострадал :) В квартире есть все, и даже книги, диски, виниловые пластинки, термос, термочашки, которые мы с большим удовольствием использовали. Для малышки была детская кроватка и винтажный детский стульчик! Очень уютно, как дома. Даже лучше :) Очень рекомендую. Спасибо Ben, Johan и Yolande!
We were 7 people! 4 adults and 3 children (1 year, 4 years and 5 years).

There was a cot and vintage high chair for baby! Very cozy, as at home. Even better :) Highly recommended. Thank you Ben, Johan and Yolande!
