Very comfortable stay!
Verhuurder Daan is erg aardig en behulpzaam. Hij heeft ons leuke tips gegeven. Ligging van het huis is prima, centraal gelegen en idd een prachtig uitzicht.
Met twee vrienden een weekend hier wezen overnachten. Goed geregeld en je bent zo in het centrum.
Nice house ,but very cold
Le logement était fidele a la description
Quartier très calme et agréable en proximité avec la vieille ville
Great location easy to reach in Gent - which by the way is a very nice little city. The house is narrow and old but clean and very welcoming - we loved the authentic style. Any time again - Thanks to Daan
Daan was an absolutely warm and welcoming host. He had great suggestions on what to see, eat, and drink around Gent. The room was very comfortable and view incredible. The house is in a perfect location with everything in walking distance. We had a fun time in Gent!
Een gezellig, persoonlijk huis op een prachtlocatie. De kamer was keurig en het uitzicht inderdaad geweldig. Daan moest er snel van door maar nam de tijd om ons van een paar gouden tips te voorzien. We hebben genoten.
Daan was a great host for our brief stay in Ghent! Upon arrival, he gave us plenty of tips for bars, food and tourist attractions. The house has everything you need - the only inconvenience is that the room is a few floors above the kitchen and bathroom, but it's not a problem if you do not mind walking up steep stairs! I would gladly stay here again if ever in Ghent - recommended!
We had a wonderful time at Daan's place - the room is exactly as beautiful as on the picture and very quiet. We loved the view!
The house is in a very nice area, very central, and you can easily discover the whole city by foot, as we did.
The house has no real heating system so it gets pretty cold in winter - we were warned so this was no surprise. But each room has strong heaters so they warm up easily.
Daan was very helpful, he gave us a city map with some addresses and places to go. Communication was really easy and quick.
We can definitely recommend this place and would come back any time!
Great and super friendly guest !
Daan and Johanna were exemplary guests, interesting and interested. Just great people.
Daan was a quiet, clean and respectful guest. Very interested to learn about local culture, life in Japan etc...easy going and easy to host (website hidden) hesitation recommending him to other hosts.
I've hosted around 150 people at the different places I've lived around the world, people from different races, cultures, ages, castes... never ever did I have a guest I so wish I didn't have. My experience with Daan: He doesn't respect his promises (asking me not to rent my room to somebody else just having to wait 24 hours for his official booking, then the day after, then the day after, and finally 96 hours later, only 24 before he would arrive). As well never ever does he say thank you, nor smile to express it, whatever you get him what he asks for, rush to get extra things you didn't even agree beforehand you would provide, invite him to a college party (with free entrance and free all-you-can-drink menu), allow an early check-in and late check-out, pick him up, help him with his luggage, etc., etc., etc. (unless a tiny chocolate without leaving would do for everything... it was still a good surprise, but would have preferred just hearing ONE time "thanks"). Only able to make complaints... when it's too late to fix whatever can be fixed (on hist 3rd and last day). Making choices that don't make sense, and then rejecting the fault on his host (too much light but not able to install one of the 2 curtains offered, too cold but having chosen not to take a big blanket but 2 small ones & not starting the heating because then it would supposedly be too hot (when you can select the temperature), place that doesn't suit him but not accepting my offer to go somewhere else and get his money back for the nights he wouldn't stay with me. And not emphatic whatsoever (he knew I couldn't access my money to get new stuff, didn't care (even though he had obtained all what was announced, all he had asked for too, and more). Only good things: - He does seem easygoing in his needs when writing to you... BUT proves not to be once at your place. - He does answer emails... BUT never ever recognizing any mistake he might have made. - he does share conversations sometimes... BUT only about him and in a way that sounds like he's bragging about it - He does respect the place where he stays in the way that he doesn't destroy any material things nor take anything... BUT doesn't mind smoking inside even though it had clearly been explained he couldn't whatsoever. To anybody reading this: - If you are thinking to stay with him, as long as you're not planning to make a friend, I think you should go for it, he must provide neat stuff (if you need any extra thing, do demand him whatever, it seems that airbnb guests can and should feel like in a 5-star hotel with him). - If you are thinking to host him... unless you have a castle to offer, you might want to spare the trouble, money is not...
As said before, this was my first bad airbnb experience. Two fleeze sheets in stead of a blanket. Only one curtain. Waking up every day because of noise, cold and light. This place was in no state to be rented out.
Daan was polite, very tidy and easy to talk with. he stayed for 4 nights and left the tatami room clean. It was a pleasure to take him to my favorite Okonomiyaki restaurant and Sushi restaurant. I would recommend him to any hosts anytime. Thanks for coming. hope his job goes well! lots of greetings from Hiroshima Japan. :)
Daan was my first Belgium at B&B, very polite, respect Japanese culture and make us feel very confortable with.
I am sure I will host him again in Japan, you are very welcome to our home.
Thank you very much.
It was a great pleasure to have Daan at home !
I would definitely recommend Daan (and his mom) !
They've been such lovely, interesting and easy-going people. We spent two evenings together at home, having dinner together, sharing our travel experiences and a common taste for exotic destinations, discovering each other's cultures.
We're looking forward to seeing them again. Next time in Ghent with a great pleasure !
