About this listing
This well-located and comfortable one-bedroom flat on the ground floor of a city house allows you to discover Ghent at ease, whether you come by train or car. The heart of the city is at walking distance while you sleep in a quiet street.
Within the city-centre of Ghent - 5 min walk from the main railway station Sint-Pieters, nearby musea (SMAK, STAM, De Bijloke) or a 15 min walk to the Graslei, Korenmarkt, you can rent a beautifully renovated ground-floor flat in a city-house.
The flat is easily accessible for everyone as it is on the ground floor. You will have your own private kitchen with laundry facilities, a comfortable bedroom with direct access to the garden and a spacious bathroom with a dressing, cloth-hangers, and all bathroom necessities - soap, shampoo, towels, hair-dryer etc.
The kitchen is fully equipped with fridge, freezer, microwave, four electric cooking plates. In the bedroom there are books, maps of Ghent, Brussels and Bruges and you have access to lots of CDs.
Wifi is available.
Interaction with Guests
We will communicate your arrival time and key exchange in advance and you will be able to reach me during your stay. I am available for any information you need on Ghent, and other Belgian towns like Brussels, Bruges, Antwerp, Ostend or Ypres which are just a train-stop away from the flat.
The house is located in a dead-end street - so it is quiet and no traffic is passing through, especially in weekends and evenings. There is a square in front of the house with parking facilities.
There are bakeries, restaurants and shops in the vicinity. A nice restaurant with take-away facilities is just around the corner. And the heart of the city is a stroll away along the river.
If you want to go for sports (jogging, out or indoor swimming) and nature/relaxation, you can walk to the Blaarmeersen which has all major sports facilities.
The tram stop is at the corner.
Ghent is also easy to cycle. Several guests took their bikes to the flat which can be either stored outside in a biking rack or inside the flat in the corridor. This is easy as it is located on the ground floor.
Other Things to Note
The flat has an Apple Tv
This flat is non-smoking but you can smoke in the garden. No pets allowed in the flat.
Liesbeth was kind and welcoming. Although she was briefly away when I arrived, her cleaning lady let me in and even gave me a ride to town when it was raining. The room is exactly as the listing indicates. Everything was perfect for what I needed and expected. Liesbeth is doing it right!
We had a very pleasant stay in Liesbeth's apartment. The bed is very comfortable, the bathroom is beautiful, the kitchen is well-equipped and there's even a small garden. The apartment is ideally located close to both the main railway station and the historic city center, which we could easily reach by foot or public transport. Would definitely recommend.
Great place, nice garden with a gorgeous shower, and a warm and cosy room A+++.
Nous avons été très bien acceuilli par la maman de Liesbeth.
La cuisine est complète et bien agencée. Elle dispose d'un lave-linge et d'un sèche-linge très utiles pour une semaine.
La chambre est ravissante et le lit très confortable, la salle de bain est "haut de gamme".
La terrasse est agréable, et l'on peut manger dehors s'il fait beau.
Le logement était très propre.
La voiture peut se stationner devant la maison en prenant un ticket de parking pour 3,50€ la journée (beaucoup moins cher qu'à Bruges).
Le centre historique se trouve à 20-30 minutes à pieds, mais le tramway N°4 se trouve à 150m et 20mn après nous sommes directement au chateau des contes. La ligne 22 (au même arrêt "Albert Brug") nous conduit au Kouter directement.
Le quartier est très calme.
Nous avons passés un très bon séjour et si c'était à refaire, je prendrai le même logement à Gand
We had a wonderful stay at Liesbeth's apartment in Ghent. She was out of town, but her mother kindly met us and showed us around. The apartment was perfectly clean and comfortable and very conveniently located between the city center and the train station (and the shower is amazing!). We would be happy to return in the future!
Ons verblijf in Gent is ideaal geweest ...praktische ligging met het openbaar vervoer als met de auto...parking in de straat voor 3,5€ en er is echt genoeg plaats :-) Zeer rustig in de straat .Liesbeth zelf is super vriendelijk en heel (website hidden) hebt de indruk om altijd alleen te zijn in dat huis en dat vond ik vooral positief :-) Zeer zuiver en genoeg handdoeken beschikbaar.
Zou ik terug in Gent moeten blijven zou ik zeker teruggaan.
It's gorgeous place to stay in Ghent. Closed with bus and tram station. Nice quality bed and shower system.
