Awesome flat, 5 mins away from the northern part of the old town - near the castle. There is a great little pub called the Alchemist opposite the castle and was always our first stop on our way into town. Good nightlife, bustling with students from the university (very Shoreditch-esque so good for people watching). Our group was five 25 year old humanities teachers. Safe to say the city gave us the perfect balance of culture and beer, all the more enjoyable due to the great comfort and location of the flat.

Simon's place was perfect. Centrally located, easy to walk everywhere, and easy to get in and out. Plenty of space for the 6 of us, and he had awesome recommendations. Worth every penny.

The appartment has a good ubication very closed to the center of Ghent. Is very comfortable and clean. Simon had previously prepared a baby crib with sheets and a high chair for our baby. We also have a big "sofa-bed" that he prepared at our arrival too. There was very good details like the kitchenware (including oil, sugar, coffee, etc), belgian beers in the fridge and the slippers! However we must thank him allowing us an early check in and late check out! 100% recommended!

The pictures and description of this apartment are exactly what we walked into. This is a great place, with 2 bedrooms, plus extra pull-out couches in the living room/kitchen (which can be closed off with a set of doors). Having a washer and dryer was a great amenity - I will always look for that when traveling from now on, especially in Europe where you don't want to pack too much. Having a key code for the entry was another great amenity. Good quality wireless internet in the apartment - we were able to use 2 cell phones and a laptop. This is a HUGE advantage over any of the hotels we stayed at elsewhere during our trip. Simon was an excellent host, and left us an assortment of coffees, teas and beers. The neighborhood is great - just about a 10 minute walk to the main square, and a 5 minute walk to a small market. I definitely recommend staying in Gent, and in particular staying in a place hosted by 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.
