Private large and characteristic room in a huge 19th century building with wooden floors and lots of charm.

The space

The room is on the 2nd floor and can be individually locked. We live on the first floor.
There's a broad staircase leading to it.
It's an exceptional building though not "fancy schmancy" renovated to perfection...which is part of its soul.

Guest access

Separate kitchen and bathroom (shower, no tub) to be shared with other residents (1 student room, 1 airbnb room). Therefore we do not allow more then 2 adults a room.

Interaction with guests

As hosts, we're pretty "No Nonsense". We don't serve breakfast but we can advise you the best food and coffee bars in the neighbourhood...and there's plenty of them.
We regularly have theatre and performance artists residing here for a longer period. So they can probably guide you through the cultural happenings of the day.

Other things to note

Fresh sheets, towels and bathrobes!

The place is just like in the pictures. Large bedroom with large windows, the bathroom is down the hallway. The building is very old but has that charm factor. The best thing about this place is the location, only a five minute walk to the cathedral and plenty of restaurants and shopping are around the corner. I will definitely recommend this place, mainly by the location.

Well-located and clean. Bathroom is shared with others (there is a family who rents permanently and another airbnb listing). Location was fantastic. Very charming details of the building. Host was great and check-in/check-out went smoothly.

Great location. Central area of Ghent in close walking distance. Room and bathroom were both nice, spacious, and clean. Strongly recommend.

I had a really nice stay at Ellen and David's place for a 4-day work trip. The location was very convenient in relation to the city centre and university. The room was large and David was very quick to help in any way he could, for instance in supplying an extra set of keys and hair dryer as soon as we asked.
