Spacious & cozy room under the wooden roofbeams of a unique 17th Century house, on a 200 meters walk from the center of Ghent.
Think: wooden details, sleep-read-relax, quietness in a small city, TV: no, wifi: yes!, relaxing chairs, an old stairs that cracks underneath your feet, a beautiful part of the city, a little canal running next to the house, coffee bars, indoor parking and public transport (tram) just around the corner, etc.
The attic is divided into a sleeping area and a 'read & relax' part (underneath a glass roof) with some chairs, two tables, etc. There is also a rather basic bathroom (a toilet, a tiny bath -no shower!- and a sink) which has to be shared with the owner of the house.
There is a (small) double bed available (200cm x 140cm: for one who loves space at night or two that love each other), and an extra single mattress on demand.
The attic & the bathroom can be used freely, as well as the kitchen (where you can take a coffee, use the fridge, prepare yourself some food, ... ).
If you need something extra, you can always ask, but the above description should be the minimum.
Attic (sleep & relax), Bathroom, Kitchen
Right in the center but very quiet. The neighbourhood of LIEVEKAAI & PRINSENHOF is one of the best kept -public ...- secrets about living in Gent.
Coming from our central TRAIN station (Gent-Sint-Pieters): Tram n° 1 stops at the famous Ghent Castle 'GRAVENSTEEN' (5 min. walk from there to my house).
Coming by CAR: Park on the street in MOLENAARSTRAAT (3,5€/day, 250m from my door) or at indoor parking RAMEN (€11/day, 400m).
It's an old house that needs caring. For the rest: just come around and I'll tell you.
Vic's house is very nice place! It is comfortable and beautiful.
He is also very friendly and good hosts. Thanks to I could spend a good time in Ghent. If I visit Belgium again, I want to stay his attic again.
정말로 좋은 집입니다. 호스트도 매우 친절하고 상냥해요. 겐트의 유명명소들과도 가깝고 교통도 편리합니다. 1주일간 이 집에서 지냈는데 이 집을 예약한 저 스스로를 칭찬해주고 싶을 만큼 완벽했어요.
De beschrijving van de advertentie klopte helemaal. Oud huis met krakend hout. De badkamer is van een basis niveau. Helaas was het niet mogelijk om staand te douchen. verder heerlijke nachten gehad bij Vic.
Wonderful! One of the best places ever found through airbnb. Authentic and very old house, close to everything. The room under the rooftop is just great. Vik is fun, welcoming and considerate. Super recommended
What a warm, welcoming space and host. Thank you Vic for your hospitality in such atmospheric accommodation. The loft was warm and snug and the position of your home in the heart of the historic area really appealed to my interest in history. Most convenient for transport, wonderful walks along the river and canals and through the little lanes. Highly recommended and I hope to visit Ghent again. Some people might find the stairs challenging, all part of the atmosphere!
Super hôte , accueil très chaleureux, magnifique maison (typique et pleine de personnalité)! C'était vraiment agréable de passer un we en amoureux dans un si beau cadre et avec un hôte qui parle si bien français :). bref, super première expérience avec Airbnb!
Un tout grand merci à Vic!
Accueil parfait , chaleureux dés notre arrivée; Vic est un hôte d'exception; la maison est très bien située pour découvrir la ville;
The house is a beauty and you can feel how much Vic likes it. He made the arrival easy for me, arranging things so I could check-in when it was most convenient for my schedule. I will recommend it to everyone visiting Ghent. See you soon, Vic!
