About the property

new luxury apartment in pedestrian street with a view of the towers of Ghent

Experience the charms of medieval Ghent and sleep in a beautifully renovated loft in one of the oldest stone buildings in the city. The property contains the remains of the disappeared 'Malreronsteen', which can be dated back to the 13th century.

This fully renovated loft is located in the historic center of Ghent at the cozy Koestraat.

The greatest advantage is the spacious private terrace overlooking the Belfry and St. Bavo Cathedral.

The décor is zen with an eye for design and old beams centuries give it a warm touch.

There is a separate bathroom with toilet, two sinks and shower and the kitchen is brand new and fully furnished.

In the bedroom is a wonderful box spring and into the living room, the seat can be transformed into a comfortable double bed with a good mattress. There are also two extra seats that can be converted into two single beds.

The TV is equipped with a giant screen with digital Telenet and there is also wireless internet available for free.

There is no separate bedroom with a door there, the whole room is decorated like a loft. The bathroom does have a door. The layout with a bathroom in the middle between the bedrooms there were provided sufficient privacy.

The loft is located on the third floor and there is no lift. We help with your luggage.

This loft is well insulated and luxuriously furnished, so you can completely relax, away from the city bustle, yet within walking distance of all major attractions.

Perfect home base to explore Ghent

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is incredible - so much character, a spectacular terrace view, spacious bathroom, comfortable bed - and located right in the heart of Ghent. We didn't use the kitchen much, but it seemed well-appointed with the basics and the red fridge is adorable. The space was very clean and seemed well-maintained. Virginie was a wonderful host and was very flexible with our arrival/departure schedule. We loved being able to walk to different parts of the city with ease, and there were several tram stops within two blocks. If we're ever back in Ghent, we'll be staying here!

lovely city, nice apt, excellent owner - got it all

  • 5 of 5

Virginie was an excellent host/landlord; quick email responses, straightforward, warm personality, everything was just as she said, punctual, just super! Apartment is in an excellent location; grocery store nearby, plenty of restaurants, close to tram strop. Apartment has everything you need and in excellent working order, it has a laundry (washer & dryer), dishwasher, etc. Well maintained and clean. Her sofa bed was very comfortable for my 2 college aged children and as was her regular bed, plenty of linens. Ghent is a lovely university town; we stayed at Virginie's for a week and would come back anytime. Be warned that you will need to climb up the stairs (typical of many European apartments, same was true of our Amsterdam & Prague rentals) to the third floor, not a problem for us but could be an issue for some. Last but not least, prompt on returning the deposit. Do not hesitate to stay here.

Great loft in the heart og Gent!

  • 4 of 5

This apartment is great. It has the perfect location, even though it's very central it's quiet and peaceful. All the shops are in the neighbourhood and the location is optimal for tourism or even if you're working in Gent for a shorter time period. The apartment is fresh and seems bigger due to the high ceiling. All necessary things are included (dish-washer, washing machine etc) and it is newly renovated. A big plus for extremely nice owners.

Très chouette week-end entre amies!

  • 4 of 5

Nous avons passé 3 nuits dans le loft de Virginie. Nous étions 4 amies, qui avions laissé hommes et enfants le temps d'un week-end. L'appartement est hyper bien situé! Dans le centre, avec de belles boutiques de fringues juste à côté. Il y a un Proxy Delhaize à 200 m à pied (bien pratique pour faire de petits courses pour l'apéro et le petit-déjeuner). L'appartement est propre, bien équipé, la décoration et le mobilier sont sobres et de bon goût. Virginie a été aux petits soins avec nous! Seuls petits bémols: comme c'est sous les toits, il faut grimper pas mal de marches pour y arriver! Et comme c'est un loft, le bruit du frigo peut gêner certaines personnes la nuit. Enfin, lorsque nous y étions, il y avait de gros travaux juste à côté, qui nous ont réveillées tôt le matin. Mais cela n'a rien à voir avec Virginie ou l'appartement évidemment!

Je recommande ce loft et y retournerai certainement.

séjour très agréable à Gent

  • 5 of 5

Je viens de passer une semaine très agréable ds l'appartement de Virginie. Appartement TRES bien situé et calme. Bcp de goût ds la décoration dont j'ai bcp apprécié la sobriété. De belles poutres , de belles vues sur la ville depuis les fenêtres , une propreté exemplaire et un chauffage efficace! Accueil chaleureux de la part de Virginie attentive à de petits détails qui comptent! (ex: une bouteille d'eau à l'arrivée!) Bref, je ne peux que recommander cette location (aux gens soigneux!). Quant à la ville, très belle et animée.

Ps: tôt le matin , alors qu'il fait encore nuit noire on peut entendre le chant des oiseaux qui nichent ds le quartier. Petit concert bien agréable!
