Very uncomfortable beds. Pillows the size of a small chair cushion and filled with what felt like bits of foam. There was a grubby stained waterproof lining on top of the mattress topper which made sleeping difficult due to perspiring during the night. This was removed for us plus their duvet was in a terrible state of concentrated lumps of foam or whatever. Disappointing as hotel food excellent and so were staff. Spa does not have a swimming pool as it's just a plunge square really with a couple of swim jets but certainly not a spa big enough for people staying at hotel.

You really can't go wrong with the NH Hotel Gent Belford. There are cheaper alternatives, but the NH is a classic full service hotel with 24 hour room service. The city center is vibrant and full of incredible history, great food and drinks... and the hotel sits in the middle of it all. The room was very clean and comfortable, the hotel in good shape and the staff... were OK. Very efficient, semi-friendly. :) The folks in the bar/restaurant were exceptional, though and the local beer sublime. Super quick walking access to the incredible city tram lines and just a few hundred meters walking from the Korenmarkt. If you are into street art, Graffiti Street is just a minute away - it's really cool. Will stay again next time (and I work for a company based in Gent, so I'll definitely be back).

The hotel is 20min walk from main attractions and very quiet, comfortable and in good condition. Room was generous size. Breakfast is rather average in quality and choice and this could be improved especially in terms of hot food.
Just be warned - if you want a cab to the station which is a 10min drive, you may want to book about a week in advance. We left plenty of time to get our Eurostar but when we asked the receptionist to book a cab, he couldn't get through for 10mins, then was told it would be 20mins for it to arrive. He said it was the biggest cab firm in Ghent. It then hadn't arrived in 30mins at which point I was becoming worried I would miss my Eurostar train. It was only when I asked him to try another firm that a cab arrived in another 10mins - so 40mins overall on a Saturday morning in March when the town was half empty.

Excellent staff and a very good buffet breakfast. Breakfast was from 7:30 but they provided service from 6:30 on the day those of us were taking part in the Tour of Flanders sportive. A 15 minute walk to the beautiful city centre and a tram stop near as an alternative.

The room was a decent size, though the bathroom was a bit tight, but manageable. There were toiletries and towels available in the room and also a hairdryer if required. The wardrobe was quite small but adequate for us.
The wifi was excellent and once we had accessed it, there was no problem in re-joining it every time we walked back into the hotel.
Arriving into Gent St Pieters railway station you can get on a tram which stops directly outside the hotel. Numbers 1, 21, and 22 will get you there, it is approximately 6 stops away.
The Hotel reception is staffed 24 hours and the staff on reception were all very nice, helpful and friendly. There is an accessible bar and food is available for 24 hours and if you want an early breakfast it's available from 4am.

The heart and soul of Ghent is the picture-perfect, car-free Old Town. Tour boats ply the Lys River, with the medieval guild houses of Graslei and Korenlei streets casting their reflections upon the placid waters. St. Bavo's Cathedral houses the magnificent Lamb of God altarpiece, painted by the van Eyck brothers in the 1400s. The Gravensteen Castle, built in the 1100s, is another must-see.
