“In the heart of ‘t Patershol, Ghent’s oldest district, Hotel Harmony is a terrific find just around the corner from Castle Gravensteen, with other attractions, such as St Bavo Cathedral and the Belfry, within a few minutes’ walk. It occupies two beautifully restored historic buildings, one right beside the canal, the other behind, where old and new have been imaginatively fused, and a stylishly contemporary interior is warmed by wooden floors and brick walls. The large, spotless bedrooms have modern furniture and light bathrooms with big bathtubs. Try for a top-floor room with a breathtaking view over the centre of Ghent, including its trio of towers. The courtyard garden, nestled between the two buildings, is a great place to relax and enjoy breakfast or drinks after a tiring day’s sightseeing, and there’s even a swimming pool, which comes into its own in a heatwave. ”
