Kay & Christian are wonderful hosts & so welcoming. The premises are beautiful, very calming & comfortable. Amazing breakfast
B&B Waterzooi was fantastic! If you are going to travel to Ghent, it would be difficult to find a better place to stay. The owners are very good hosts. They are knowledgeable and friendly people. They can help you on your journey through Ghent. You are within walking distance to everything, in medieval Ghent. You are within walking distance to most anything else you would like to see just outside of that. They offer a reasonably priced breakfast that is as good as any hotel. They can also help you with parking if you need it, for reasonable rates. The B&B has an elevator if you need it. You have private and secure entry, to the building. There is wifi, but I never used it. I was out seeing Ghent. They share a courtyard with the Ghent Tourist Office, where you can get your Ghent CityCard, good for free or reduced admission to most attractions, and it comes with free mass transit included. The Ghent CityCard also includes a free river boat tour, of your choosing. The two hour Ghent Walking Tour, the Tourist Office offered was about eight euro. There is an excellent steak house that shares the entryway area of B&B Waterzooi. The owners will tell you about it, and guests get some discounts. I stumbled into the B&B Waterzooi. I live and work in Belgium, at this time. I randomly decided to visit without much planning. They just happened to have an opening, as they are usually booked a few months in advance. Now I am spoiled. It would be difficult to stay anywhere else, in Ghent. Of course next time I will stay longer than two days. Thank you B&B Waterzooi!
There is nothing about the property itself that can be complained about. Don’t drive to B&B Waterzooi. Starting in January 2020 Ghent will enact a smog law that will limit older vehicles. Portions of Ghent’s center are already reserved for pedestrians. Come to Ghent by train. Drive to Ghent, and find paid parking outside the ring road. Then take a taxi. Don’t come to Ghent for a day or two expecting to see everything. Make your stay at B&B Waterzooi for at least three days plus travel days. That is my advice to you.
We had the Felix suite which was fantastic. Wonderful detail, like lavender bath salts and tampons in bathroom. Lovely blend between modern and old. Location is spectacular, bed is amazing. Breakfast was intimate and personal, like having with family. Will definitely return
Car was parked 10 minutes away - having said that - for Gent parking in always a challenge, so having any option was good.
Great location. Beautifully decorated. Wonderful and very helpful hosts. Highly recommend!!
Very nice and lovely B&B in the historical building right in front of the castle. It is very convenient to reach by public transport (tram stop is right in front of the building), but most probably you will need to use public transport only to get to the train station, because all main Ghent landmarks and places of interest are in walking distance, the same with the restaurants and bars. Our room was at the top floor, with both elevator and stairs leading to it. It was perfect, with living room, separate toilet and bathroom and bedroom with the balcony at the first level and masters bedroom at the second level. There are quite steep stairs leading to masters bedroom, so please keep it in mind while travelling with children or elder people. Room is equipped with air condition, refrigerator, electric kettle, hairdryer and you may take an iron with ironing board. Hosts are awesome, they are very open and welcoming and Kay has incredible sense of humor.
It may be a little bit too hot at the second level (masters bedroom) when the weather is hot, as air-conditioning may not get there, but there is fan, which can also be used.
With a stay at B&B De Waterzooi in Ghent (Ghent City Centre), you'll be steps from Gravensteen Castle and 4 minutes by foot from St. Nicholas' Church. Self parking (subject to charges) is available onsite.
