Royaal appartement, prima bedden, hartje Gent, gastvrij onthaal.
Nog wensen? :-)
The apartment had a great location, couldn't be better. We parked our car in the parking at the "Vrijdagmarkt", which was a short walk and not expensive (18€ for the whole weekend)!
We loved everything about the apartment, the space, the rooms and the warm welcome!
We would definitely stay here again when visiting Gent!
I will definitely recommend Ben's apartment to friends and family. We were met by his parents who insisted on helping with the luggage, showed us where everything could be found, both in and around the apartment, plus there was no shortage of written information on same. They also took the time to show us how everything worked, like the remotes for the television and sound system, the stove, the key locks, etc., and gave us their phone number offering to help in any way possible to help us enjoy our stay. The apartment was very clean, comfortable and well stocked with everything needed to have a hassle free stay, like plenty of towels, shampoo, body wash, a razor, etc., plus some complimentary local beer, fruit, coffee and other little touches that did not go unnoticed, it all made me think that Ben and his wife would do well in the hospitality business, having worked at a 5 diamond resort in my past. We actually stayed more than a week and his parents insisted on bringing us more clean towels, and again, they could not have been more accommodating. The location is great, easy walking distance to everything you may want to see in Gent and I was able to easily park my car two blocks away. The only minor negative comes from a positive; the apartment is so close to the center of town you may get some loud party animals on the weekend walking by, which might disturb you if you are trying to sleep in the front bedroom, but the back bedroom is quiet all of the time, otherwise both bedrooms are great, the beds were very comfortable. My wife and I have travelled a lot over the years and this was our first time every staying in a home, rather than a deluxe hotel, so I was a bit nervous as online pictures and testimonials do not always give an accurate account of what you will be getting into, happily we were not disappointed in the least, the apartment and little touches that made us feel at home really exceeded our expectations.
Мы отдыхали с друзьями (4 человека) в период с 04.01.2014 по 07.01.2014. Квартира находится в самом центре Гента, рядом с башней Белфорт. Квартира интересно творчески оформлена, на стенах много фото работ, нам понравились. Находится в старинном доме на втором этаже над нежилым помещением. Все достопримечательности в пешей доступности. Для гостей в квартире есть папка с подробным описанием по использованию техники, рекомендациями по барам, ресторанам, магазинам. Это очень помогает сориентироваться в первый день пребывания. Спасибо Бену, Лане, Йохану и Иоланте за наши незабываемые каникулы в Бельгии!
The apartment is on an ideal location to visit Gent, everything (museums, shops, restaurants, public transport) is around the corner or on walking distance. The apartment is clean and very comfortable. And the beds are fantastic, very comfortable!
Ben's parents gave us a warm welcome, since we were the first guests in 2014 even with a bottle of champagne in the fridge. Everything you can wish for is there, only if you plan to cook a 5-course diner, be aware you can use just 2 burners at the same time.
I highly recommend the apartment, definitely our first choice for Gent!
Ben's place was great- I booked last minute and he was really prompt and easy to communicate with. Everything was top notch- cool place in an even cooler city! Easy to get to from the train station, and the street is nice and quiet at night (with a wonderfully large and comfortable bed) which made for a great night's sleep. Would definitely book again.
Het appartement is super de luxe, zeer goede bedden, luxe keuken en gezellige woonkamer. Midden in het centrum van Gent gelegen en alles op loopafstand. De ontvangst bij de sleuteloverdracht was heel goed en vriendelijk. Ook voor de inwendige mens stond iets lekkers klaar, fruit, drank en koffie
Dit is zeker een plek om terug te komen, want Gent is een heerlijke bourgondische stad.
Het appartement was ook super schoon.
as soon as we were greeted by the hosts, we knew we had picked the right place. location is amazing because it's surrounded by so many historical sites and lovely boutique shops, bars...etc
the apartment was spotlessly clean and we were welcomed by nice treats in the fridge, a fabulous Nespresso machine with pods.
They have everything you need for a perfect weekend away.
Great power in the showers, wonderful size bath, brilliant TV, cable, WiFi provision. the info pack from Ben is brilliant, so much advice about restaurants for breakfast, dinner, shops for groceries. In Gent everything is only a 6 min walk away from large shopping area, medieval area...
beds are really comfortable and a great size for couples!
I would definitely recommend Ben's apartment to all of our friends. We hope to come back in the future. More to explore!

Top appartement. Midden in het centrum, maar toch rustig. Super ontvangst. Echt voor herhaling vatbaar.
An apartment very well situated right at the center of Gent, between
the Stadhuis and the Vrijdagmarkt. Perfect to visit the town, with all
the shops, markets and beautiful things that Gent has to offer.
It is located on the first floor of an open office. Bright and
spacious, it has two double rooms with big and comfortable beds, a
large and warm bathroom with bath and shower ( the toilet is aside), a
modern and roomy living room ( nice music and dvd colllection) and
very well equipped kitchen. The owners give you a very warm welcome,
they explain you everything with detail and leave some nice things for
you in the fridge. It also has a patio in the middle with a barbacue
that we sadly coudn't use ( we went in november). With a good central
heating, it was a pleasure to arrive to the apartment after a long day
of tourism. With any doubt I would repeat the experience and gladly
return to this lovely place
Ben was a fantastic guest. He was communicative leading up to his stay, kept the house extremely tidy, and obeyed all the house rules. I'd highly recommend him to anyone renting on AirBnB.
Ben and his friends arrived last and left the next morning, but they were very friendly, neat and communicated well. I would be happy to have him back anytime and recommend to any other host.
It was such a pleasure hosting Ben and his girlfriend for a few weeks in my apartment in New York. They are such a lovely couple- so wonderful, respectful and responsible! :) They left the apartment in a spotless condition! I highly recommend them as guests! Thank you for being my guests!
Very polite, clean and wonderful guests.
Ben was a terrific guest! Respectful, friendly, courteous, clean - a delight. We would heartily recommend him to any host...and hope he comes to visit us again!
