ROOM in 17th Century Attic *Center*

House - Private room · Sint-Widostraat, Ghent, Flemish Region 9000, Belgium

A nice, elementary & cozy room under the roof of a unique 17th Century house, on a 200 meters walk from the center of Ghent.

The Space

Think wooden details, sleep, read, relax, quietness in the city, no television, wifi although, relaxing chair, an old stairs that cracks beneath your feet, a beautiful part of the city, a little river running next to the house, coffeebars, an indoor parking ("RAMEN") and public transport (tram) just around the corner, etc.

The attic is divided into a sleeping and a tiny 'read & relax' part (underneath the glass roof). There is also a rather basic bathroom (a toilet, a tiny bath -no shower!- and a sink) which has to be shared with the owners of the house.

There is a (small) double bed available (195cm x 135cm: 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.

If you need something extra, you can always ask, but the above description should be the minimum.

(Possibility to prepare a little breakfast in the kitchen, but please: ask in advance)

  • Thank you Vic for the nice stay at you place! The attic is a cosy place to spend the night. The house is located 2 minutes walk to the old city center, which is ideal. Vic was very helpful and available to answer our questions. I can recommend everybody to visit Gent for the weekend and stay at Vic's place.

  • I could go for the usual AirBnB blather. But all I need to say is this: Gent is GREAT, Vic is THE BEST, and his place is AMAZING. That's it!

    March 2014
  • I had a short one-night stay at Vic's apartment. Everything was very clean and tidy. Vic was really nice (I could even borrow his umbrella!) In the bathroom in no real shower, so prepare on taking an old school bath! The house is really beautiful and the location is also very nice.

    March 2014
  • Staying at home at Vic's is exactly that: staying at home. I could not have asked for a more convenient and generous accommodation in Gent. The room for the guests is sparsely furnished with all that one needs to rest and/or do some work, without any unnecessary clutter. The host is a cultivated, intelligent therapist and counsellor who will discreetly guide you through your questions and the canals of this beautiful town.
    Thank you Vic.

Somewhere in my mid-thirties, with a keen preference for food from around the corner (try 'Eetkaffee De Lieve' as long as it exists!), photography, architecture, music from Ariel Pink over Bach to the Talking Heads, ... And no: I'm not a big traveller. I like to spend holidays at home!
