NH Gent Belfort
Lonely Planet review
From well chosen angles the delightful eastern facade makes this four-star modern hotel look like a magnificent Art Nouveau palace. In fact the vast majority is of a fairly straightforward international design. Nonetheless it's brilliantly central and one of the city's best known business options.
Movie stars typically stay here during the annual Flanders Film Festival in October. Their photos line the main corridor. Guests have reputedly included Sandra Bullock and Brad Pitt. The reception area has aged-effect steel struts and up-lit white ceilings that create a bright, modern feel. The hotel's triangular form creates some rather eccentrically-shaped guest rooms. Others like No 158 are built into round corner rooms offering views and lots of natural light. The brand new executive deluxe rooms are more predictably uniform but very stylish with gold-brown stripy walls, double-sliding doors on the Scandinavian-style bathrooms, espresso machines, wi-fi and anti-allergy double-layered 'my-bed' mattresses. Tucked beneath the old-world turret is a fitness and sauna room. Beneath that the restaurant has fine views of the historic police station building opposite.
