An excellent location within a short walk of the City Center and the beautiful old town and canals of Ghent. Very clean and modern apartment and Simon was excellent host to deal with any little issues we had. Especially appreciated the few local beers that were left in the fridge. Parking of our hired car was an issue with regard to cost and availability of nearby spaces. I would recommend staying here.

The apartment is exactly what you see in the photos: a modern flat with everything you need right in city centre. Simon was an amazing host. He provided us all the information about the apartment, restaurants and sightseeing info before we got there and he always was accessible when we asked for something. I would recommend for sure this apartment and when I come back to Ghent I will be staying there if I can. Thanks for everything, Simon!

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.

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.
