My third time staying at this hotel and I see. no need to look elsewhere. Comfortable rooms and excellent mattress, very friendly and welcoming staff and a decent breakfast. Bar staff are also very accommodating and speak, like most Dutch speakers, better English than we do;-) .
Location good if you want be away from crowds in a major historic center, but still convenient enough, about 15 minute walk past some interesting older buildings, places to eat, etc. Less than 5 minute walk to major shopping street. In front of hotel, convenient tram line to Sint Pieter train/ bus station Couple of comfortable, cozy restaurants/pubs nearby. Fresh bread shop almost next door. Reception helpful. Thermostat hard to get to, in a corner, hard to reach /read/adjust,doesn't light up to easily read. so getting a comfortable setting more of a guess. Bedding generally comfortable but felt like it was laid out for two persons, with a long fold, ridge down the middle--not comfortable for back and a feeling that one is forced to one side. I'd probably stay there again if thermostat situation could be fixed.
its been upgraded since i last stayed breakfast was far superior and all the town is just outside the door with the tram passing by every 6 mins. the room has every thing u need but compact but you don't need more for a short stay
The room, and especially the bathroom, were very small but still functional for one person. Room was quiet even though it was on the street side. Service was friendly and professional and breakfast was excellent.
Since half a year I spend a night per week in this hotel. Before I kept searching for the ideal place, and finding Ibis Opera was like finally finding a "home" for this weekly night. The service is correct and predictable. People are correct, friendly but not "over" social, which I really like. The room is practical and clean. What I get for the price, is absolutely top.
The Centrum Opera hotel was great - simple, clean room with great service. Classic Euro style. The bed was super-comfortable. The staff was wonderful, the bar was fun, loved the breakfast service. I'll be back.
We stayed there for one night only. It's a bit of walk from the train station but it's close to the tram stop. The room was clean and the bed was comfortable. Very close to cafes and shops, and tourist areas.
The hotel has a short walk to the old town. We arrived by car and therefore the hotel's garag was more than welcome with 16 euros for overnight. The staff is very friendly and check-in&out went vry smoothly with pre check-in service. The breakfast was also good. Only thing to improve would be coffee - the hotel may be using mlk powder (or something like that) when making latte or cappucino because the taste was a bit watery.
Location of the hotel is great. 10-minute walk to Sint-Baafskathedraal and other tourist sites. Got tram and bus stops right in front of the hotel. Breakfast was 15 euros per person. All standard but not many selections. Staff were helpful and friendly. However, room is small. Especially the shower room. I had to really take care not to hit against the wall while showering. All in all, it's a nice place to stay for a night enjoy city walks in Gent and head to your next destination.
I used to stay in Ghent 3 or 4 times a year for Professional reasons and enjoyed the city very much. Nevertheless aftre having been challenged and insulted in a strange language by people who obviuously wanted to touch my young female colleague on Veldstraat and Korenmarkt, I shall rather stay out of the city !
Checked in online so room and key read on arrival. Rooms are simple but perfectly adequate for a city break. Bed was comfortable and clearly new along with all the bedding. Good location for gent centre and next to a team stop for the rail station.
Room was everything you needed for a nights sleep and a shower. Clean and confortable. Breakfast was included on my rate and plentiful, fresh and varied. Bar was great too, nice relaxing area. Location is excellent for both the center of town, which is a few minutes walk, or the ICC which is just 10mins walk or by tram just outside the door.
The location is excellent and we booked on that basis, a short walk from everything. Unfortunately, it was also very noisy, not limited to noisy people in the corridors but also traffic noise and building work. The check-in required filling out a lot of small forms, which seems bizarre when they have all our information, and other hotels in the area have not required this. The room was very hot and we had to open the window. The aircon was louder than the traffic(!) and still pretty noisy when switched off... The breakfast was very good and the staff were very helpful - one man saw our lack of skill at making waffles and made another for us - unfortunately it was hard to enjoy it as none of us had had much sleep. Our experience was not great, but I suspect other rooms in the hotel may not have had the same problems.
The shower temperature was oscilating, like extremely hot and extremely cold. Besides than, the flow was low. The bathroom also was flooded after shower. Even though it's well located, close to city center. People did a lot of noise, since the wall are thin.
The Ibis Hotel is situated in an ideal place for visiting Gent. It is just on the edge of the town centre. A short walk from all of the sights. There are some very good restaurants and plenty of shops. the Tram runs straight past the hotel for those that want to use it. The only drawback is the front of the hotel can be noisy so if you want peace and quiet, opt for a room towards the rear.
Ibis Gent Centrum Opera is a lovely choice for short stay while in Gent. The staff are very supportive. There are several places of interest to visit after attending to your bussiness and is conveniently located for those using public transport.
Perfect location for the No1 tram from Sint-Pieters stops right outside the hotel, with only a 2 minute walk from all the shops and easy walking/browsing into the main square with St Michiels bridge and Korenmarkt.
Good, basic accommodation handily positioned a short walk or tram ride from the city centre. We didn't use the bar but it offers catering throughout the day. There is a luggage room to leave cases in after checking out.
We were satisfied by our hotel choice. It's fair Ibis standard hotel, with (as usual) an excellent bed, well spacious, though a bit basic, room. We enjoyed our stay. Some cons: breakfast cost is a bit expensive, the hotel located in a middle between city center and train station, so you have to walk or take the tram to reach both of them.
Chose hotel because of location and parking facility, which was invaluable to us as we were due to arrive by car. Breakfast was of a good standard and plenty of choice. We found the staff very attentive and helpful during our stay. A little tricky to locate, but we managed it after taking assistance from another IBIS hotel en-route who provided us with a map. (Reception very helpful at the hotel Thank You)
