Me and my wife Maryam love to travel. We want to experience the countries we visit in non-touristy ways, to meet locals and experience their countries with them.

I stayed at Alex's place for a night with 2 friends. Alex and his wife Maryam were very welcoming and hospitable. They provided me and my friends directions to and around their place before our journey, and communication with them was very helpful with immediate responses. I had trouble on my journey and Alex even offered to pick me up to his place. Thank you again! Maryam gave us a city map the next morning with explanations and recommended some great places in Ghent. The room was beautiful and clean, but the bathroom was a little untidy. It was located outside the city center, but was directly linked to the center with tram. We were satisfied with the stay overall.
Alex's house is comfortable. His wife received us at nigtht and offered us a map. We slept well and felt welcomed. The next day Alex gave us instruction to the train station. Strongly recommende.
Nice room in a nice neighbourhood. Easy to reach. We only stayed one night, would definitly stay here again to see more of ghent. Alex was a good host for our short stay :)
Alex and Miriam were very friendly and gave us good advice about what to see in the city (Ask them about hot chocolate and waffles)! The apartment was really nice and there is both a bus stop and tram within walking distance. I would recommend them to anyone visiting Ghent!
We really enjoyed our stay at Alex&Maryam's place, they were very friendly and helpful and their ferrets were nice to play with :) On the day of arrival Alex drove us to the shop and Maryam gave us information about the city and helped us to catch the train when we left. The room we stayed at is spacious, the bed is comfortable. The neighbourhood is quiet and safe, but it's far from the city center, 10 mins by bus or 40 mins on foot. The overall experience was nice, we'd recommend the hosts and the place without hesitations.
We never got to meet Alex but he was very helpful via email/phone before we arrived. His wife Maryam was waiting for us at the house and also saw us out when we left. She was very nice and gave us a tour of the house and some great tips of places to eat, drink and visit during our stay in Gent. The room itself was clean, with everything you could need and the bed was nice and comfortable. The door to the bathroom doesn't lock, (which wasn't a problem, we had all the privacy we needed.) Also, there's a tramstop right around the corner that takes you directly to the heart of the city. All in all, very nice people and good accomodations.
We only stayed in the room for one night. We were visiting Gent for one day of the Jazz Festival and so only needed a place to sleep. The room was fine for us, for this purpose as the bed was very comfortable.
I ought to mention that since we were out late, the place was a little complicated to get back to and we eventually ended up walking. It didn't take that long and for me, it was an opportunity to see a little bit more of Gent, so no problem, but it's probably worth considering when deciding if this place is for you. We also stayed on what I think was one of the hottest nights of the year so far. As such, we had the window open, and there was quite a lot of noise, I think coming from the trains. Again, this wasn't really a problem for me and my girlfriend as we wore ear-plugs, but it's something worth knowing before making a booking.
I consider my reviews to be an opportunity to help hosts we've stayed with avoid having disappointed guests as well as to express gratitude and appreciation towards them for having us stay in their home. We were FAR from disappointed. We didn't meet Alex, but his partner was really, really friendly and helpful when we arrived and when we left. She introduced us to the lovely ferrets and made sure we found everything we needed in Gent. She immediately made us feel at ease and it was a shame we didn't get a chance to spend a bit more time with her.
Alex's communication ahead of the stay was through and his responses were always prompt and helpful. We were provided with towels, some much-appreciated toiletries and a map/tourist information leaflets which is an indicator have how our hosts are keen for their guests to feel comfortable and to enjoy their stay. That's incredibly valuable and we're very grateful.
We'll definitely stay again if we're back in Gent and I'll definitely recommend the place to friends.
Thanks for the detailed review!
Nice host. There were everything what we needed in the room. Map , fan, shampoo, tea, (email hidden)d it wasn't difficult to find their house. The room was really private. Just the location is not in the center. Have to take a tram or bus.
We just stayed a night but Alex room was perfect for us. Nice, clean and spacious. The bed is very comfortable for 2 persons. Alex was kind and helpful.
The place was really nice and clean, with towels, bed sheets and other stuff. The hosts are nice. The only thing is that the place is quite far from the center town.
