We had a great time at Simon's place. He really made us feel welcome, with great communication and a lot of useful info before we arrived. The apartment itself was very clean and comfortable. The location was also great, within easy walking distance of most of the sites.

Simon was extraordinarily helpful. Our arrival/departure from Ghent didn't coincide with normal check-in hours but he invited us to leave our bags in the secure lobby of the flat on arrival and stay well into the afternoon on our departure day, as the flat wasn't rented for the following day. He also provided lots of useful info about the city. The flat was very clean, bright, uncluttered, and well-stocked, including with some food staples--and a bottle of cremant in the fridge. Although it didn't have a view of the old centre, the flat was very well situated on a quiet lane just a couple of blocks from Gravenstein and the canals as well from services such as grocery stores and cafes. There was even a small outdoor area with a table, although the wet weather didn't allow us to use it. A real find, managed by a very considerate host.

Simon was fantastic, welcomed us at the agreed time and had a chilled bottle of bubby for us! The apartment is amazing- modern finishings, super clean, quiet and fully appointed with all the ingredients you would need to start your personal groceries going. The location was perfect for us, we walked everywhere but the tram just down the street was very convenient to get to the train station upon departure. we would recommend this property to everyone we know!

Our experience with Simon and his apartment was beyond fantastic! Simon was excellent at communicating, and provided very clear detailed instructions for navigating to the apartment, getting settled, all of the features of the apartment, as well as numerous detailed recommendations for sights and amenities near the apartment. Simon was organized, easy to deal with, and extremely responsive to emails - an absolute pleasure! The apartment itself was immaculate, with everything we needed at our fingertips. The place was bright, clean, modern, yet cozy. The couches were awesome to sink into after a day on our feet, the bed was very comfortable, and the shower was spacious with plenty of hot water. The kitchen was well-appointed with all the necessary basics, plus a bonus pod coffee maker, espresso maker, dishwasher, etc. WiFi was great, no connectivity issues, and it was a treat not having to worry about losing physical keys with the apartment's innovative keyless entry system. The washer and dryer were a definite plus, as was the roof-top terrace. The apartment is located in a neighbourhood that was so well-situated to explore central Ghent right outside your door. You are just moments away from all of the historical sights, plus great bustling squares with excellent cafés, restaurants, pubs, and more. Easy tram access from the train station, or a pleasant ~30 minute walk. We thoroughly enjoyed the apartment, and fell in love with Ghent. We had originally planned to explore much more of Flanders, but found ourselves happiest staying in town exploring Ghent and enjoying the city, its history, and its people. Some of our favourites included the STAM museum where you could learn about the history of the city of Ghent itself, the Castle of the Counts and its macabre torture collection, climbing the Belfort for the view and to watch how the bells chimed, the local vintage jazz bar around the corner called the Hotsy Totsy with its boardgame collection, and the great waffles and coffee at Mokabon. Ghent felt welcoming, and offered lots to see and do, without feeling completely over crowded with tourists - a true gem!

We had a wonderful stay at Simon's apartment in Ghent. The apartment was great and had everything we needed. From the first point of contact through air bnb it was quick and easy. Prior to our arrival Simon sent me great information about the area and his suggestions on where to eat and where to shop which we found very helpful. The apartment itself was very clean and comfortable. The rooftop was pretty cool as well. We didn't get a chance to take advantage of it as we have young kids and didn't want them up there, but definitely a cool spot to have drinks or a meal. We arrived late at night so when we were dropped off and not knowing where we were going I will admit I was a little apprehensive as the entrance is down a narrow street which almost looks like an alley. But once the morning came it was completely different and we got to know the area which was very safe. The area is fantastic as it is a close walk to where all the action is. As well so close to a grocery store, coffee, pastries....the location definitely was a bonus. There were 5 of us and it was more than enough room. Simon also checked in with us to make sure we made it into the apartment okay and offered his assistance throughout our stay. I highly recommend Simon's apartment not only for the apartment but for easy and quick communication with Simon.

I am the dad of a beautiful daughter and son. I love life, my family and cooking.
Travelling is something I love to do. Nice cities, great landscapes or the sea side. I love it all as long as I can avoid the tourist traps and overcrowded places with bad food.
