“The unassuming exterior of this 18th-century townhouse on a quiet Ghent street, hides a truly impressive period interior. Just south of Central Ghent but well-connected for both the railway station and motorway. The rooms, each named after a local feature, are decorated in keeping with the building’s history, but with clean, modern bathrooms. There is a beautifully restored breakfast room, part buffet, part table service and a small gravelled courtyard behind the hotel has been turned into a lovely quiet suntrap. The former wine cellar has a sauna and a small gym for guests’ use. Owner-Manager Martin and his staff are happy to offer thoughtful and interesting recommendations, making it easy to seek out hidden treasures and true Ghent delicacies, beyond chocolate and beer. No lift; breakfast is included in the room price.”

“This authentic charming hotel is situated in a renovated Town House dated 1840. The stylishly decorated rooms are spacious, all have re-newed bathrooms and feature free wireless internet, flat-screen TV and cosy sitting area.
Situated in a residential and quiet area of the city centre, close to city parks, the river Schelde and the Sint Pieters Square, Hancelot offers you the perfect surroundings to explore Ghent. A nice walk of only ten minutes brings you to the old historical city centre or take one of the buses and trams that are only two minutes away from the hotel.”
