... since they were paid for anyway. Booked for 3 nights too so had a free stay :) thought it might be a good idea not to bother Lisa too much. So that was it. Tour over. Really glad I did it. Met some awesome people that I will keep in contact with but still wish I had started it from the beginning so that I got to know everyone a lot easier. Now it was time to enjoy London for a bit before Oktoberfest and then it's karate in Canada, Russia and ...
... importance to the monastery and should not be a profit-making venture. The income should cover the living expenses of the monks and the maintenance of their buildings and grounds. Anything else must be donated to charity to help persons in need. I thought it tasted ok for beer based on the two sips I had. Mark described it as dark and thick with a good head and strong malty smell but a very smooth potion to drink!!! Go the monks!!
... that nearly ran me over). I sat on the tram today – the driver just waited for a car to get out of his way. He didn’t ring the bell and gesticulate. Just patiently waited then glided off. And drivers are the same – they will wait. It’s all a bit weird. In so many places the normal thing is that drivers beep the car in front or the one blocking their path, to force them into driving out of the way. I like the Gent ...
... and this another wide uninspiring canal until we reached the junction with the Afleidingskanaal which went towards Deinze, and then it went slightly narrower and tree lined. Not the typical Belgian tree lined, but very pretty.
We saw 2 working barges on this canal being loaded in different ways, within a mile of each other 1 being chute fed and the other being a grab bucket (see pictures).
We had been told this morning ...
... steepest, narrowest staircase east of the Pennines but well worth the climb. Michaela was going to bunk on the second floor but we all ignored her and pressed on. Rooms very tastefully done and view across a small square terrific. Gent is a rather large city but the central historic section very walkable and very photographable. River and canals crisscross the place. ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Harmony Ghent
The best hotel!!!!
This new hotel is the best kept secret in Ghent. Everything was perfect for us. The room was done in the highest quality & taste. Extremely clean as well. It is worth getting a room with a view which is so breath taking. A must experience!
My wife and I stayed at the Harmony for 2 nights in early May. Other than getting slightly lost driving into Ghent, the stay at the hotel was fabulous. The location is wonderful - within a short walk of all major sights. The staff, from the owner to his son and daughter who work at the desk, were gracious hosts and extremely helpful to us. Since there was no room at the hotel to park the car, the owner volunteered to drive our car to the nearest parking lot for us. Our room was extremely large by European standards, very well appointed and immaculate. The bathroom was large with a great shower and a jacuzzi. Breakfast was superb with a great selection. The only concern we had was that the air conditioning did not cool the room to our likes but then again, we like a really cold room!! Otherwise it was an excellent stay and we would definitely stay there again!
Solemos coger los hoteles por internet. Esta es la primera vez que un hotel es realmente, incluso mucho mejor, que lo que dicen las páginas. Ultimamente, cada vez que llegábamos a un hotel escogido en la red, echábamos apuestas a ver en que se podía parecer la habitación real a la que habíamos visto en las fotos. Bueno, pues lo único que puedo decir es que tras llegar a la habitación hicimos un montón de fotos (para no olvidar). y no nos apetecía salir de ahí.
Had a wonderful weekend stay here in February. Couldn't have stayed anywhere better. The room was immaculately presented with plasma TV, internet access, minibar, safe and very well equipped bathroom. The staff were fantastically helpful and recommended some great restaurants all within 2 minutes walk of the hotel.
Looking forward to returning sometime in the future.
Best hotel in Ghent?
We just spent a weekend in Ghent, staying at Hotel Harmony.
It's a lovely boutique hotel - decorated beautifully and with spacious, well-equipped rooms. We had a 'luxury' room, which was not the most expensive but a step up from the 'cosy' rooms offered. We chose not to pay extra for a view of the river - instead we overlooked an internal courtyard - and pretty though Ghent is, this felt like the right decision.
The hotel is excellently located in the heart of the city, close to good pubs, shops and restaurants, and it easy to find for those driving like we did.
I believe this could be the best hotel in Ghent - certainly more elegant than the chain hotels - and with facilities appropriate for business or leisure travellers, it is certainly worth checking out.
Just returned from relaxing weekend break- Hotel Harmony fitted the bill perfectly. Within easy walking distance of main tourist attractions, in a quiet area near the best restaurants, right on the river. Very helpful staff made us feel very welcome, generous breakfast with plenty of fresh choice. Best thing of all the decor- if you like modern, minimalistic you'll love it (halogen lighting, chocolate colour scheme, contemporary bathroom, flat-screen TV in our room) some one had fun with the interior design-never seen anything like it before- very individual! One and only flaw, no tea/coffee making facilities in room. Would highly recommend. Would definitely return.
A fantastic hotel.
The room was lovely - tastefully decorated, great views over Ghent, and a fantastic spa bath that made us reluctant to leave the room at all. The staff were all charming and spoke excellent English. Breakfast was plentiful, fresh and tasty, and the room service menu, although limited, was of very high quality. Ghent itself is also a lovely place to visit, but staying at this hotel really made the experience.
The Basics: The Hotel Harmony is impressive in design, affordable for the location (heart of the Patershol), the staff is incredibly accommodating and professional, and our was stay extremely pleasant.
Highlights: We were given a room upgrade to a Jr. Suite; The king-sized bed was extra long in length and super comfy; For 5 Euros you can have your continental breakfast delivered to your room; and the staff is very knowledgeable about the area and made great restaurant recommendations that suited our taste.
We highly recommend this new boutique hotel and will definitely go back to stay next time we are in Ghent.
Best kept secret in Ghent!
We lucked upon this hotel in Ghent during our recent visit to Belgium. The location is superb, the service is outstanding and the rooms are big, clean and offer a beautiful view of the 3 towers.
The owner of the hotel and the staff bent over backwards to accomodate any needs we had. They always went out of their way to help us out. They even arranged for a family member to take us to Brussels airport. We were treated like family!
Hotel Harmony is the best kept secret in Ghent. We highly, highly recommend this hotel. When we return to Ghent, we will definitely be staying at Hotel Harmony.
