About this listing
When I have guests, I convert my photo studio into a guest house. It's a nice space under the roof, with a private kitchen and bathroom. You will love the light. And you will love Ghent... PS. No need to use your car, you are in the city-center.
If you like architecture, I live in the first house Victor Horta built.
The house has four floors, you would occupy the top floor apartment, which normally serves as my photo studio. When I have guests, I convert it into the lodging space you can see on the pictures. It has a large bedroom with a double bed (140cm), a kitchen, breakfast table and sofa, refrigerator, coffee machine, and toaster. On the third floor, you have a private bathroom and toilet. Please note that there is no elevator :-)
My house is very much in the center of Ghent, you can reach everything that is worth seeing on foot. The tramway is around the corner.
Ghent is treat if you like art, good bars, restaurants and a young crowd. It is also the perfect base to visit Antwerp, Brussels and Brugge by train or by car (all are on +/- 50 km). I will share some suggestions on what to visit and where to eat, if you are interested.
If you are friendly traveler, you get a nice place in a great city for a very acceptable budget.
Thx and see you in Ghent.
I am renting the top floor of my house which has all the infrastructure of an independent appartment (kitchen, private bathroom etc...). If you smoke, we can have a cigarette and a chat in the garden but the rest of the house is private.
Interaction with Guests
I very much appreciate to have a chat with the people that stay in my house but the fact that the studio is on the top floor gives you all the privacy you want. We use the same corridor and stairs, so if you come home early in the morning, please do so quietly :-)
The neighborhood is unique because it is residential, a nice mix of students and more permanent inhabitants. It is very calm but still only 500m out of the center of town.
The tram stops around the corner but in Ghent, you can do everything on foot.
No smoking. There is internet access and I will give you a house key for which I will require a deposit (a driving license or so). You cannot bring any pets. If you have specific questions, just ask me up front and we can discuss them.
