Owner Ann gave us a very warm welcome. The warm welcome already started from home as she replied to questions very quickly and gave us lots of great restaurant and bar tips. The room is small but cosy and has all you'll need. Room, toilet etc. were very clean, the bed is good and comfortable, the shower nice and hot. Breakfast was good although we could not finish it all. Great that the breakfast included extra bottles of water and some snacks we could take with us. We were only passing through so only got to spend one evening/night in Ghent but we wil definately come back!
Ann was a great host! I arrived a bit early but she recognized me and opened her home to me. The room was perfect with everything I needed and if I requested something else Ann happily provided (such as adapter for charging phone/laptop). Her breakfasts were delicious and abundant. Ann's home is within easy walking distance to all of Historic Ghent and in a very pleasant area. I would stay there again and highly recommend Entree des artistes!
Ann is extremely friendly and welcoming. The apartment is a short walk from the town centre and the room is every bit as cute as in the pictures. I really loved my stay here.
Ann has been the perfect host.Since the firts messages we exchange she was cute and always with the right mood. She had not problem at all about our arrival to her flat.The welcome has been very very warm!She welcome us with her family, amazing music and 2 glass of wine. As Italian I can say it was an exellent wine!Ann's family is very nice, composed by 2 guys and Oscar: a soft and cute dog.Ann suggest us place to eat and to hang out with good music., she also played her violin for a while.and this was just the welcome!The room was clean and "familiar". Our day in Ghent passed too fast, but the central position of Ann's apartment allowed us to be in the center in 5 minutes walking. Ghent is a very nice and medioeval city, but Ann make our stay in this city even more interesting.We'll come back! Promise!Manuela and Antonio
Centrally located, just few minutes walk from center of the city. Ann was away on a musical tour but her son was very helpful. The room was clean with private bath and shower.
