A travel blog entry by ahnettski

Ghent is so beautiful! Waking up this morning was very hard. We slept on the bus to BD, which was very nice at BD. but at BD I felt like the BD people were very together and the rathered to talk to themselves then with us. But after they warmed up it got better. But a few stuck to themselves. Walking around Ghent was amazing! So much better then …

Day 5

A travel blog entry by krystaloswald

Today we left Brussels and headed to Temse to meet with BD. I wasn't sure what to expect when we arrived but I was actually blown out of the water by their efforts. We met with some employees and had a presentation that introduced supply chain concepts and gave some details about their own supply chain. The slides were dry which made it hard to …

Day 6

A travel blog entry by krystaloswald

Today we went back to the BD distribution center in Temse and the employees had games and activities waiting for us. They put on a show for us that demonstrated their order to cash cycle and some of the flaws that happen between departments. It was a real eye opener to my own co-op at Johnson & Johnson because I could completely relate to what …

A visit to the most famous Belgian beer bar

A travel blog entry by lawslo

... Belgium I was hoping this would be a good day for Dan’s dream of visiting the most famous Belgian beer bar in Brughes.

"This alley!" Dan called looking down at the map. Stepping carefully on the uneven cobbled streets I hurried to catch up and follow him down the tiny dark alley. It didn’t look promising. Dan stopped and turned around pointing above his head at the sign, 'Beertje’ This was the ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews NH Gent Belfort Ghent

    Another good sofitel

    from

    all the previous reviews are accurate and honest. I stayed in this hotel and found it superb. The layout IS a little unusual but not confusing. If you can afford it, pay the difference for an executive room - the largest and best appointed room I've stayed in for years. I tend to be a little fussy about where I stay - which drives my wife mad - and demand value for money. This hotel did not disappoint. This may be just the roll of the dice but I have never had a bad experience in a sofitel. I save the pennies and pay the difference. To my mind, it's worth it because you work hard all year and deal with life's problems as best you can. For the few days that truly belong to yourself indulgence isn't an extravagance - it's a necessity. Stay a few days and de-stress.

    A weekend in bed

    from

    We took advantage of the weekend deal of 3 nights for price of two, including breakfast which dissapeared from the computer but was confirmed by telephone. Arriving friday evening was pleased that there was plenty of private parking at hotel, this is a real bonus to have a convenient secure carpark. As No Non smoking rooms available were upgraded to the KAREL V Suite This was a superb set of rooms exteremely spacious, with two loos, tvs, minibars and we could have easily remained in doors in deepest winter with no problem. The Bed was the most comfortable I have encountered. The only drawback was the low backed settee when reading.

    Relaxing well appointed hotel

    from

    While it is true that the layout of each floor of the building is strange, that did not detract from our overnight stay here. We found our executive room to be luxuriously furnished with every comfort. The decor is high-tech modern, but in a soothing way. Excellent advice from the front desk about where to have dinner -- our meal at the BelgaQueen restaurant was memorable. Don't miss it if you enjoy inventive cuisine that is stylish without being cute. We were in Ghent on a Monday, when many shops and restaurants are closed, but we felt like we were in the middle of the action at this restaurant.

    Nice location, huge room, no wall sockets

    from

    I spent a couple of nights at the Sofitel Gent Belfort. Its in the centre of the city. I had a satelite navigation system to guide me there. Driving with a map printed out from the internet might be more difficult.

    Really liked it

    from

    My husband and I stayed in the Sofitel last March for a few days and we thought it was great. I agree with earlier review, the staff were great about booking restaurants and dispensing general info. We loved it, great pubs, theres a great place for ribs (cant remember the name but well worth a visit, huge slabs of ribs coated in a spicy sauce thrown down on a wooden board in front of you with a tin for the bones, fab!). Loved sitting around eating cubes of cheese with a cocktail stick with a few beers. There is also a great little pub, near the one mentioned earlier and very close to the Sofitel (pretty much everything is) which specialises in serving up tots of a sort of (juniper?) gin infused with different flavours, chocolate, banana, apple, toffee etc. I think there are a couple of hundred different types. Great place but even a short visit is lethal!

    Great location - bizarre hotel

    from

    As you'll see from the accompanying photograph, the location is great. Parking the car in the excellently secure underground carpark, all of Gent is within quick walking distance. May I echo the reviewer below who recommended the BeerHuis at the bottom of the road (precise directions: turn right outside the hotel, walk straight on, and just before you reach the canal, turn right): they have over 150 beers, including their own (which is very drinkable). Also recommended are the 45-minute boat-trips... at just five euro (that's aout $5) they're very good to see a bit of the city.

    Loved the new rooms

    Friendly hotel, but needs attention

    from

    We stayed in this hotel at the end of February 2005. The location is excellent, right in the old town. Staff is very friendly, approachable and helpful. This really made our stay good, as the hotel itself is not particularly memorable. Rooms are a bit basic for what is supposed to be the top brand of Accor, and have no touches that could make the visit all the more special. Our room looked out on an inner courtyard which wasn't great, but at least quiet! Carpet is torn and worn in places, as is wallpaper.

    But, as is so often the case, the staff makes the difference and they made up for the lackings in hardware. They will need it with a new Marriott coming up on the prime spot in town, overlooking the famous Graslei!

    Nice town nice hotel

    from

    This is a great hotel in a great location,in the heart of old Ghent with all the attractions within walking distance.

    The hotel itself is bright and modern,with friendly staff and large comfortable rooms.My room had a fantastic view of the belltower and the old town hall[im sure not all the rooms have this view but it was very impressive].

    All the facillities for buisness or pleasure that you would expect from a large modern hotel are provided.

    I visited for buisness but am considering going back for pleasure,this is a first.

    Ghentrification

    from

    Love Bruges, but feel overwhelmed by frilly lace frou-frous and an overindulgence of chocolate shops? Ghent could be the answer.
