Overlooking the Coupure canal and marina, this subdued hotel in a redbrick building with a tile roof is 1 km from both Markt (the bustling central square) and from the Flemish art museum, Groeningemuseum.
The warmly decorated, casual rooms and suites come with Wi-Fi, cable TV and minibars, plus tea and coffeemaking facilities. Most rooms add canal views. Family rooms sleep up to 4 people, while suites offer additional living space.
Free amenities include parking and breakfast, which is served in an airy dining room or in the rose garden. There's also a low-key lobby bar with canal views.
PARKING: €20 per day to be reserved in advanced and subject to availability.
Please note: city tax €2.12 per person per night to be paid locally.
